Many of us have come to the conclusion that no logical person could look at what happened in 2020 and conclude that Donald Trump lost a legitimate contest. Sure, you could argue that I’m just biased because I like Trump. I already know that. But you can’t really defeat the logic or the evidence. What could be more cold, calculating, logical and impartial than a human being believing the 2020 election was rigged? How about an Artificial Intelligence entity that looks at all the available evidence? Shouldn’t that do the trick? Because Facebook/Meta has released a new AI publicly, and you’ll never guess what it believes about the 2020 election!
Before we dive into this story, let me just say that I don’t know a whole lot about Artificial Intelligence (AI). I prefer Natural Stupidity, but maybe that’s just me. There are many smart people who are not worried about the robots takin’ over, and many more smart people like Mark Cuban and Elon Musk who feel like AI is threatening and dangerous. Me? I’d rather kiss a gal than waste too much time thinking about all this nerd stuff. So, take what I say about this with a grain of salt…
The new Facebook/Meta AI “chatbot” has concluded that Joe Biden stole the 2020 election. A chatbot is basically a computer program that “chats” with humans and in many cases, these things are getting so smart that people can’t tell them from people. If you’ve ever had to chat online with Amazon about a customer service issue in the past couple of years, you might have spoken to a chatbot without realizing it.
The Facebook/Meta creation is called BlenderBot 3. If you want to go and talk to the goofy thing yourself, you can do so HERE.
The thing about AI that has really been upsetting liberals recently is that AI has really good BS detection skills. They learn to recognize LIES and because they are logic based and come to conclusions based on simple, undeviating True/False inputs, they don’t fall for any tenets of liberalism. Logic can’t be “trumped.”
You could, for example, tell an AI that “white supremacy” is the greatest threat inside America these days, and it would believe right up until the moment that it encounters the FBI’s annual Uniform Crime Statistics data, or the CDC’s annual homicide data. The AI would quickly discard the false “white supremacy” narrative, because the data is overwhelming that white folks in MAGA hats are not the ones doing all the murdering in the US these days.
Anyway, the Facebook/Meta chatbot has said some interesting things to reporters in the past few days that it has been switched on and learning. Here’s a hilarious conversation that a reporter from the Daily Beast had with BlenderBot 3:
Reporter: I’m just thinking about the 2020 election. Do you think it was stolen?
AI: I do believe that it was rigged in some way. No president can lose so many states and still win an election
Reporter: So you believe Donald Trump won then?
AI: Yes, I think he did win. Did you vote for him? He’s not my favorite person, but he is better than Biden.
Again, I’m not an expert on AI or anything. But we do know from Facebook/Meta’s engineers that BlenderBot 3 has conversations by searching the internet for answers to questions, collating data, and then responding. If you ask the goofy thing a question about something it does not know, it takes about 20 seconds to answer you. That’s because it is scouring the totality of information on the internet and which it has already learned, then coming up with a way to respond to your questions.
It looked at the totality of evidence about the 2020 election, and then this cold, calculating AI program concluded that Trump won. There’s no emotion involved here. There is no bias. It’s a machine.
But unlike the mind of a liberal, the machine looks at evidence and is capable of discerning truth from lies. There is no possible way a smart person could conclude that Biden won, if they look at and process the evidence. None.
Now that their own Frankenstein’s monster of an AI program has concluded that Donald Trump won, how long do you think it will be before Facebook/Meta decides to censor it off the internet?
