If you selected the initial conditions of the universe that led to that decision, you certainly controlled it.QuoteIf no external factors control oneself, then actions can not be predetermined by outside sources.
If I offer you a choice of $100 or $1, does my knowledge that you will choose the higher amount imply that I controlled your decision?

Your children will be much worse off if they lose you to cancer than if you lose a single job for going to the doctor (which won't happen). My mom literally died a year ago because she didn't get checked out often enough. Don't you fucking make the same mistake.

Weed helped me get over my social anxiety, but now my motivation is fucked

>men like women
>women like men
by the transitive property, men like men and women like women.
So basically, FOSS software will save humanity?All of these things use data that has been collected from humans and therefore imperfect. The real problem is that machines can't feel like humans can and will likely go to extremes that humans recognize as unsafe or irresponsible.I agree with the first part but not so much the second. I think AI can be a huge force for good. We just need to be very careful and mindful from this point out. Advanced analytics need to be accountable, transparent and auditable. They need to be able to justify why they arrived at certain outcomes and how they analyzed data. Safeguards, alert mechanisms, supervised and fair learning need to be standard and mandated by law. Independent and technically capable oversight bodies need to have access and sufficient power to scrutinize commercial and governmental dealings. The EU is taking steps towards this with its Resolutions on Big Data and Robotics as well as its new General Data Protection Regulation, but this also needs to catch on in the US (as it has in NYC where the first transparent algorithms bill was recently adopted). We can't shut down these technologies and it's probably not in our best interests to do so either. We shouldn't be overly paranoid and shun them because of unlikely doomsday scenarios, but we should also show some serious restraint and take the proper steps to think this through and mitigate or avoid potentially negative consequences.
/g/ was right all along

tfw cracking under the pressure
This is a GOOD thing. Why can't you libtards understand this? Right now, when I'm gaming, I have to deal with slow speeds caused by ASSHOLES who use their internet connection more than me. But guess what. We pay the same fucking price, and I'm getting fucked over. Without this Obama socialist ploy, I'll be able to pay a premium to play my games without interruption. It's a fucking win for everyone except the greedy assholes hogging up the internet pipes.

net neutrality is an obama-era socialist monstrosity
What are you in the mood for?no
why do you always ignore mebecause you hate me
your opinions are the worstHow can you despise Queen?easily
What? Says who?The time to act to stop this shit is now. We should start signing petitions and having an uproar. This isn't the first time we've had to deal with this bullshit, and it sure as hell won't be the last. There will be more bullshit acts like SOPA and PIPA trying to crop up, but we need to fight all of them, because these idiots don't understand how the internet works. Its not a fucking landline you rich old white fuckers, so many businesses even rely on an open and free internet. You do that and you're killing jobs.If Trump is undoing everything Obama did that can't be a bad thing.

Come on, man. That's just stupid.no chancePleaseWhat's the over under on verb committing suicide?no chance
The sad thing is that many Trump supporters legitimately feel this way.Undoing everything Obama did is obviously the right thing and fixing a lot.The time to act to stop this shit is now. We should start signing petitions and having an uproar.So fucking cute. The only voice this administration will hear is the voice of violence. If we don't assassinate Pai then nothing will change from his plotted course.
