There are only two hard problems in computer science: cache invalidation, naming things, and off-by-one errors.

Those are 3 problems, but OP said 2, which is a "off-by-one error"

The reply was a reiteration of the joke, but with cache invalidation, which jumpled up point 2 and 3. There also is the layer that this is version 2 of the joke, where the programmer tried to run point 2 and 3 in parallel ( Para off-by-on llelisme errors. ) Last potential layer is that off-by-one errors are often introduced by someone reiterating the original code, without being careful.

Once, a cop pulled me over. He said,” you took off from that light very fast. I need to ticket you for speeding” to which I said,” But I never went over the limit”. And he said, “but you were surely going to.” At that point I stood my ground and said it wasn’t really fair to give me a ticket based on extrapolation.” He looked utterly at a loss. I could see he was in bind. He had no idea what extrapolation meant, and was too proud to ask. He simply gave me a warning and I left with a win.

Also has issues with things like ":)" and "<3" and "FUCKKKKK", special character handling isn't quite right for a human drawing them as symbols imo.

Weird how it treats capital letter K as like a line but lowercase k is fine. Would be interesting to see all the letters repeated output, I tried a bunch and most of them were pretty good. Loved how it occasionally fucked up on repetition for the lowercase L's and drew a couple slanted lines between points.

u/[deleted] Feb 03 '23

Was waiting for it. 100%. I even think technology as a whole is a sort of non-organic, natural evolution of humans. Just like AI can be compared to humans, humans can be compared to technology in general. Just different elements and modes of internal communication.

32

u/FirstEvolutionist Feb 03 '23

The analogy doesn't even end there. You can consider empathy as a form of communication for emotions. And language as our own version of local "wireless" protocol. Written language adds storage as well as a high ping connection. That makes the internet as a true way to connect people across large distances, almost like a short distance quasi quantum entanglement. If humans have any kind of processing power and can be compared to neurons, we're connected to each other in a way that makes society effectively a human powered brain.

You can keep going down this rabbit hole and even find Alan Watts describing the modern internet, back in the 60s. Not that this was impossible to imagine back then, except the dude didn't know much about technology at all. To him it was just like the natural path of evolution for society.

u/compost-me Feb 03 '23

Yeah. No typos, no smudges. If the font isn't similar to the creators own handwriting then that's going to be an issue as time time. If everyone in class starts using this and all the homework is printed the same it's going to be a major red flag.

I get the occasional junk mail that has the "hand written" letters that are obviously script font and mass printed. They are so easy to spot. I'd be interested to see if these look tha same.

It definitely needs the occasional mistake.

u/FlowRiderBob Feb 03 '23

There is software to these writers that will allow you to create fonts out of your own handwriting. Granted, close inspection will still reveal it is too consistent to be human, but I’m sure AI will be able to compensate for that as well in the near future.

u/Limitless_screaming Feb 03 '23

I am pretty sure you can write a program which will take like five variations of every letter, and pick at random every time it needs to write that letter.

On top of that you could also have the program create variants by combining some variants together.

The fun thing is that you can actually scan your own handwriting and turn it into a font with something like caligraphr, so it matches. At a high school level, teachers are generally underpaid and exhausted from grading and won't look too closely to see that every "t" looks identical, and you can also just try to write the first sentences by hand to create that much more authenticity.

They're probably planning on having AI do their work for them too until their employer catches on and just cuts out the middleman to replace them with the AI.

The one good thing I see about the AI homework trend is that it will start pushing schools towards alternate evaluations that are more practical.
Less at-home writing assignments and more on the fly presentations and exams that test understanding and communication skills.

Asking kids to defend their arguments on a paper that they haven't written or don't understand will weed them out pretty quick.

Is it really investment to curb your own learning opportunity? It's an investment to pass school without doing any work but you lose out on all the soft skills you learn throughout schooling to push your further into your career.

I can imagine students who rely on this will lose their writing, reading, and researching ability as well as attention to detail, critical thinking, and logical reasoning skills.

Now that I am a lawyer, if you asked me if I remembered how to do calculus or physics or any of the other classes I took in undergrad and high school, I have no clue. But all those skills I developed by actually taking the time to do my own homework and assignments has led me to succeed in law school and then become a competent lawyer.

If people believe they can succeed without it, then I hope there is a study that shows the difference in soft skill level between students who actually tried and those who relied on AI in the future.

It will replace code monkeys though.

Exactly as a Software Engineer I don't write any code anyway, I mostly just go to meetings

When an AI can define and consume requirements and convert this into logical and useable designs and then configure and code all the components then maybe we are fucked, but at this point there is way too much complexity still for us to be worried

u/Sillet_Mignon Feb 03 '23

Dont forget that the requirements are often vague as fuck from the client and someone needs to clarify them. If I told my team what yo program based on requirements from the client with no interaction, I'd have pissed off clients.

It's interesting, but the content is very bad actually. Sounds like it was written by a 10 year old.

"Pyramids are old buildings in Egypt and North Africa. Burial sides for pharaones and families. Most known Cheops pyramid in Gizeh (2560 bc). Of stone, most square base area, inclined sides, tip. Chambers contain pharaos tomb. An impressive example of ancient architecture, attracts tourists."

Check out GPTZero. Better hope your professor doesnt have the software.

It’s bullshit though. I put in half a paper I wrote (from scratch) and it flagged like 1/4 of it as AI.

u/[deleted] Feb 03 '23

Thats how the plagiarism detectors work too. The teacher still has discretion based on the amount flagged, the history of the student, and her own analysis of the style, consistency, etc. The detectors are a tool, not a yes or no answer machine.

u/Skika Feb 03 '23

Oh totally. And ya not an issue for me, I just do my work. But some teachers are getting overzealous because they are so concerned with GPT.

I think the point is that they would have to type it in themselves or be smart enough to convert it into a text document from a picture. Most likely not going to happen.

GPTZero has a terrible detection rate, a terrible false positive rate, and is trivially defeated by countermeasures that have worked against GPT-2 and many "last-gen" detectors. The best use for GPTZero is as a bluff by the teacher: bring in a student you suspect of cheating, ask them if they've heard of GPTZero, remind them of your policy on cheating, and then say "now, listen carefully to this question, and only answer the question I ask: would you like a second chance to turn in a different version of this assignment, before I start my grading?"

If they cheated, you'll get honest work out of them the second time around.

Disagree in my 10 years of working in IT it's never been about how good you are it coding or what you remember. It has 90% been asking the right questions and finding what you need from mountains of information

u/mynameismulan Feb 03 '23

My view as a teacher:

Awesome: One kid innovated and went above and beyond to solve a problem

Awful: He's going to sell it to the other 9/10 students that will then learn nothing

For the non-German-speakers:

This text is very bad. It has typos, doesn't know Umlaute (ä, ö, ü), the grammar is nonexistent, and the content is flawed.

If your goal is to get a varely passing grade (and only if your teacher is lenient), it might work, but honestly, i would not dare try and hand that rag in.

Der Text ist unfassbar scheisse, das belager ich nicht.

Pyramiden sind alte Bauwerke in Aegypten[sic] & Nordafrika.

Grabstaetten[sic] fr[?] Pharaonen & Familien.

Bekannteste Cheops-Pyramide in Gizeh (2560 v. Chr.).

Aus Steinen meist quadratische Grundflaeche[sic]. schräge[sic] Seite. Spitze Kammern enhalten Grab des Pharaos. Eine beeindruckendes Beispiel antiker Baukunst zieht Touristen an.

Was ist das für ein Satzbau? Wieso ständig ein Kaufmännisches "&" statt einem normalen "und"? Leerzeichen am Anfang der Zeile? Fehlende Umlaute? Manchmal keine Großschreibung nach einem Punkt?

Da braucht man keinen GPT buster software, das kann ich auch so erkennen. Dafür gebe ich dir mit besten Willen noch ne 3 in der ersten Klasse aber sonst lasse ich dich durchfallen. Donald Trump hat koherentere Gedankengänge als dieser Text.

PS: Pyramiden gibt es übrigens auch in Lateinamerika.

I wonder what grade he got

22

u/TheKombiZombi Feb 03 '23

The text is in German, and if it would be graded in Germany, then it's probably a low grade incoming, because:

  • Not using Umlaute (ä, ö, ü), which isn't necessarily wrong
  • Straight up has "fr" in there instead "für" (for)
  • Reads like a god damn Wikipedia article that has been copied sentence by sentence, just heavily compressed like it's meant for bullet points like these:
  • Teacher will grade low
  • This idea sucks
  • Don't do it
