Re: Carnism as compared to Statism

There is a place for trust (in research, in credentialed experts, etc.) but only when we've exhausted the limits of our ability to judge solely by our own critical process. Correct, it's better if you can evaluate the claims about something you research yourself than if you need to trust the expert...

Re: Artificial Intelligence

Anyway, that was only possible in android due to bad design Android is an OS that's very much designed for security. Making a virus for Android is, as far as I know, impossible. Have you tried developing for Android? You need to do all sorts of weird hacks just to access a file that's in the same d...

Re: Carnism as compared to Statism

Well believing conspiracy theories (which are almost always true, like 9/11 or the Moon Landings) is correlated with higher IQ. Unfortunately, a belief being correlated with a high IQ doesn't strongly suggest it's true. Socialists tend to have higher IQ than average, and so do Nazis. Higher IQ prob...

Re: Artificial Intelligence

And this is not limited to just desktop computers, here is a similar thing happening in the world of mobile phones: https://www.androidpolice.com/2017/09/11/google-play-protect-breaking-bluetooth-moto-g4-plus-dont-worry-theres-fix/ No, I mean, you see what's going on.

Re: Artificial Intelligence

There are apparently at least few such documented cases of the heuristic algorithms in antivirus software incorrectly detecting a system file as a malware and somehow managing to block it, thereby causing a significant number of computers to stop working. I don't know if there is indeed such a case ...

Re: Artificial Intelligence

Sorry, the heuristic algorithms in the antivirus software didn't actually block CSRSS.EXE when they caused many business-critical computers to stop working, they blocked SVCHOST. Nevertheless, the story remains the same here: https://www.engadget.com/2010/04/21/mcafee-update--shutting-down-xp-machin...

Re: Artificial Intelligence

No, because it's much more speculative. Speculative? AI doesn't even need to be "sentient" for such things to happen. AI in antivirus programs convincing itself that CRSS.EXE is a rootkit and finding a way to block it (for it can't simply be stopped using TASKKILL in CMD, or any similar method) and...

Re: Article 13 and Article 11

In case somebody is interested, here is what Daniel Ross from linguistforum.com told me when I asked him what he thinks about my arguments that the conventional story of the Massacre of Vukovar is mythological: As I've said, I'm not interested in arguing about political topics. You're now claiming t...

Re: Carnism as compared to Statism

OK, Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz , what do you think is the reason Venezuela turned into a disaster? And it's not just Venezuela, it's almost every country that tries to implement socialism (Yugoslavia wasn't really such a disaster, but that's presumably because small private firms were not illegal there). ...
