If the human brain were so simple that it could be explained in a series of YouTube videos, then we'd have already achieved a "full and actual simulation of a human brain". We haven't, and that's because simulating a human brain is an impossibly complex task, and people generally don't understand this.semanticism wrote: ↑Wed Feb 08, 2023 4:36 pm there's nothing stopping an AI from having an understanding if a human brain is actually fully simulated
I can't explain much else without rehashing my previous posts on the matter, but I can add this:
A neural net playing Super Mario Bros just presses random buttons until it finds a sequence which results in success. It's not actually learning anything about Mario, nor does it actually understand friends, foes, gravity, friction, water, "when you see a hole, jump over it", etc. It's only figuring out a button sequence which solves the puzzle.
This is entertaining to watch, and it's fun to think of what else you can apply this to, but people tend to think the AI is more than it actually is, and that's the dangerous part.
Edit: Let me add that, yes, I think neural networks are cool, even though I have a lot of criticisms about them.
