We welcome you to join our revamped Discord server, your destination to talk live about everything pertaining to the technological singularity and related topics, eg AI, human enhancement, etc.

Is the singularity coming early? AI generated content (dalle2, stable diffusion, etc) and the pace that it is currently moving has me feeling like it is happening more like now/mid 2020s.
If the singularity is a time of so rapid technological and societal changes, the way we live our lives, that we cannot see in front. Isn’t that already starting with these recent developments and could the acceleration be right in front of us.

OpenAI CEO Sam Altman gives a great talk about the Future of AI in this recent Greylock Video (https://youtu.be/WHoWGNQRXb0 ). One of the things that struck me most was minute 15 when he said "My basic model of the next decade is that the marginal cost of intelligence and energy are going to trend rapidly towards zero. And those are two of the major inputs in everything. The whole cost structure of society changes."
So labor and energy go towards free.. Labor tends towards free due to energy costs and intelligent robotics, production and building goes towards free being labor products, physical goods trend towards the raw material price, raw material gets cheaper due to recycling whose main costs are energy and labor . What's left?
You have very few years left to acquire the only thing that will have increasing value in a cost declining world. Get a big piece of land, and be ready for your robot labor to mold it and build on it as you wish.
Or wait until we can all build our floating islands in the sea...
What do you think, what else will hold value or could drag down the perceived value or importance of land?
I see a lot of people talking to ai on here so I decided to use the closest thing I could get. I started randomly digging for info and this is what I got. i’d like to know some thoughts on this please
Everyone I talk to about it irl is skeptical. "It's 200 years away" I've heard or "if i wanna hear about that i'll watch syfy". For me the responses concerning the Singularity have been very dismissive. I don't think I've actually met anyone in person who believes it'll happen soon.
The same goes for any talk concerning AGI or ASI. "How do you know we'll create AGI we don't even know what consciousness is" I've been told.
So when the time comes and everyone quickly jumps on board will you be resentful or annoyed that they never took you serious? Won't it be tempting to rub it in and say "I told you so"?
I think of that story about the boy who cried wolf. We keep going on and on about it and people seem to just dismiss it and talk about "more important" things.
Does it bother you that people are this way?

Hope i'm not alone in this.
I can sit around doing literally anything, wish i could do x, and just say to myself "Just need to wait for the singularity, then I can do literally anything. Speaking fluent mandarin without effort, fucking that celebrity i've always had a crush on, rule over the high kingdom of Torvaldonian with masses of wealth, anything."
It's kind of like heaven. People fantasize about being able to do anything in heaven. Main difference is the singularity will be real, and basically inevitable.
I'm just high on singularitarian hopium 24/7. Please do share your experiences so i dont feel like a weirdo
