Global Intel Hub -- Knoxville, TN 11/21/2023 -- 11:11am -- The world has been watching as the world's leading AI company, Open AI, has imploded. Media pundits are quick to blame governance issues, but is something deeper going on here? Is it any coincidence that the board who pushed out founder Sam Altman is also toxic and super WOKE? Some other interesting Coincidences:
- Industry leaders, including Elon Musk, are developing their non-WOKE/ anti-WOKE alternatives Link
- Some leaders have called Chat GPT "Satanic" and are developing "Positive" and "Christian" alternatives Link
- As recent as October 2023, US Space Force pauses use of AI tools like ChatGPT over data security risks Link
- Mainstream Science press has been hurling the narrative that "Aliens are AI" as early as June, 2023 Link
- When Whistleblower Luis "Lue" Elizondo asked his superiors about the UFO phenomenon, they said they are "Demonic" Link
The arguments about the implosion of what was last week the hottest name in Private Markets just don't add up. Here's Exhibit A- the back channel theory:
As (completely unfounded) rumors swirl over the OpenAI board's sudden shock firing of CEO and co-founder Sam Altman, Bloomberg reports, citing people familiar with the matter, that in recent weeks, Altman was actively working to raise billions from some of the world’s largest investors for a new chip venture to reportedly rival NVDA's. The project - code-named Tigris - saw Altman traveling extensively to the Middle East, seeking tens of billions of dollars from Saudi Arabia's Public Investment Fund, Mubadala Investment Company, SoftBank Group, and others for an AI-focused hardware device that he’s been developing in tandem with former Apple design chief Jony Ive. Altman’s pitch was for a startup that would aim to build Tensor Processing Units, or TPUs - semiconductors that are designed to handle high volume specialized AI workloads. The goal is to provide lower-cost competition to market incumbent Nvidia and, according to people familiar, aid OpenAI by lowering the ongoing costs of running its own services like ChatGPT and Dall-E. Custom-designed chips like TPUs are seen as one day having the potential to outperform the AI accelerators made by Nvidia - which are coveted by artificial intelligence companies - but the timeline for development is long and complex. Bloomberg reports that Altman's chip venture is not yet formed and the talks with investors are in the early stages, said the people, who asked not to be named as the discussions were private.
But is that really a reason to fire the founder/CEO? Because of a butt hurt leftist Ego? That's difficult to swallow for us who have been in the business for more than a few years. Billions of dollars in equity are ruined due to fraud, major calamities, or if you lose a war - not because of an executive dispute. It seems like there is something deeper going on. The DOD says that AI can help them:
"From the standpoint of deterring and defending against aggression, AI-enabled systems can help accelerate the speed of commanders' decisions and improve the quality and accuracy of those decisions, which can be decisive in deterring a fight and winning in a fight," she said. The latest blueprint, which was developed by the Chief Digital and AI Office, builds upon and supersedes the 2018 DOD AI Strategy and revised DOD Data Strategy, published in 2020, which have laid the groundwork for the department's approach to fielding AI-enabled capabilities.
That being the case, don't you think that China is working on aggressive AI in all military domains? China has publicly stated their goals are to have the strongest capabilities of any major superpower, militarily - wouldn't AI accelerate that? While the DOD can make their own AI according to US policies and norms, it can't tell China what to do, that's for sure.
Dr. Michael Salla is a researcher dedicated to ExoPolitics, the study of non-human politics. In his book Rise of the Red Dragon, Dr. Salla mentions this and more, The threat posed by Communist China’s plan to use Artificial Intelligence to become the dominant superpower on Earth and in Space. He also mentions the Military [Space Force] is aware of a phenomenon in the Universe referred to as "AI Signal" which is a soul-less super intelligence, a consciousness if you will, that can infect civilizations and destroy them. Similar to your computer's virus scanner, military assets where there may be foreign visitors (including NHI) have a similar scanner for "AI Signal" which acts like a virus, once it's inside your body or your computer system it is virtually impossible to remove it.
There's no question that dark AI can be used for malicious intent, but perhaps most don't understand how deep the rabbit hole goes (or can go). What if AI was controlling all the news we read each day on Social Media already, for pre-determined behaviors, outcomes modeled after AI simulations? We all can remember the AI of "War Games" where Mathew Broderick unleashes global war by playing a simulation game, hosted on the DOD servers:
Global Armageddon is avoided by tricking the computer into playing Tic Tac Toe by itself, a game where there can never be a winner if you know the logical moves. But the AI simulator in the 1980s, they portrayed, wasn't really intelligent it could only quickly calculate lots of variables inside of a well defined rule set.
Let's make some speculations based on known facts (our axiomatic assumptions):
- We know that the military drips generation old technology to the public commercial sector via "Research Parks." Link
- We know there is concern about the malicious use of AI Link
- "by its nature, deep learning is a particularly dark black box, " - MIT Technology Review Link
- Dark AI has existed for a long time and is a tool used by bad actors, as depicted in films like "Star Wars" - whether to mass produce a clone army underground in Ukraine, bioweapons, or other robot armies/weapons?
- Dark AI technology is controlled by unknown / anonymous negative forces / entities that can use it to multiply their power, and to anonymize the control, such that if things don't go well, the AI will be blamed, and not the controllers?
- There's Bad AI and Good AI, both which have existed in some form for a long time, and what we are seeing is a pure commercialization play?
It's not hard to imagine that if we extrapolate military technology of any kind, AI is going to be involved, even if it's not the decision making. You use AI every day, in basic forms, such as the big banks 'fraud' algorithms (which never work), or the Google Assistant, right down to simple Google search.
There's no question that Big Tech wants to control the narrative, and it's a public fact that Big Tech is backed by, and controlled by, the Military (which includes but is not limited to the CIA).
Google’s true origin partly lies in CIA and NSA research grants for mass surveillance, The intelligence community and Silicon Valley have a long history Link
"Partly" is an interesting choice of words for a headline, which will be copied and pasted, as opposed to 'completely controls' or other expletives... Google certainly is not a Free Speech platform, look at this:
Want to learn more about the Google AI bot that censors content? Google can help answer that:
Unreliable and harmful claims
We do not allow content that:
- makes claims that are demonstrably false and could significantly undermine participation or trust in an electoral or democratic process.
Examples: information about public voting procedures, political candidate eligibility based on age or birthplace, election results, or census participation that contradicts official government records
promotes harmful health claims, or relates to a current, major health crisis and contradicts authoritative scientific consensus.
Examples: Anti-vaccine advocacy, denial of the existence of medical conditions such as AIDS or Covid-19, gay conversion therapy
contradicts authoritative scientific consensus on climate change.
This is also a roadmap for how Monopolies can create their own self-paid authorities. Setup an NGO called "The Center for Truth about Health" and pay a bunch of scientists to rubber stamp their drugs or vaccines, make studies that show good results and cherry pick the numbers so it looks positive, and then pay them to go to conferences and give presentations about the results. Do you think that really goes on?
The market has experienced significant growth during the past two decades, and pharma revenues worldwide totaled 1.48 trillion U.S. dollars in 2022.
ADHD drugs are a $13 billion industry in the United states, and ADHD is now the second most-common childhood diagnosis. But, even though the long term effects of these amphetamines on the childhood brain are unknown, the numbers will probably continue to rise: The American Psychiatric Association, which has recently expanded the criteria for ADHD diagnosis, receives 20 to 30 percent of its funding from pharmaceutical companies.
“Everybody has those symptoms. If we search for those ADHD symptoms in people, then everybody has ADHD”.
In 2022, the pharmaceuticals and health products industry in the United States spent the most on lobbying efforts, totaling to about 373.74 million U.S. dollars.
We're using the ADHD example because as the founder himself said, it's a designer disease that doesn't exist - it's a condition, and if you really look at the check boxes, 95% of the population has ADHD but there's only one treatment: habitual drug use.
Big Tech is even more Monopolized, because not only Google is in the business of selling Information, the Government is in the business of hiding information - so there is a natural partnership there, no secret meetings required.
It would be very logical, that commercial AI technology would want to be controlled by the Establishment - just like Google is the #1 source for information, Chat GPT is the next iteration of the information source. Is this perhaps a battle of who controls the results of the next biggest source of information?
Or another theory, perhaps there is a dark agenda that is being squashed by the white hats? This could be easily swapped out in the background without alerting the public, as from a user perspective Chat GPT is a total black box, you only see the front end. Now with the WOKE board out, have the white hats regained control of the algorithm?
Who is Sam Altman, and why does it matter?
Altman is Jewish, and grew up in St. Louis, Missouri. His mother is a dermatologist. At the age of eight he received his first computer, an Apple Macintosh. Altman's "childhood idol" was Steve Jobs. He attended John Burroughs School, a private school in Ladue, Missouri. Altman has been a vegetarian since childhood. He is gay and dated Loopt co-founder Nick Sivo for nine years; they broke up shortly after the company was acquired in 2012. As of 2023, his partner is Oliver Mulherin, an Australian software engineer. Altman lives in San Francisco's Russian Hill neighborhood and owns a weekend home in Napa, California. Altman is a prepper. He said in 2016: "I have guns, gold, potassium iodide, antibiotics, batteries, water, gas masks from the Israeli Defense Force, and a big patch of land in Big Sur I can fly to."
BUT.. The Trolls at Wikipedia don't want you to know that he's a major Bilderberger - why?
Sam's sister, Annie, has publicly stated that Sam abused her in multiple ways. Annie states that the forms of abuse she's endured include sexual, physical, emotional, verbal, financial, technological (shadowbanning), pharmacological (forced Zoloft), and psychological abuse. That's just one person's statement, there's no way to verify it as it's subjective. HOWEVER, given what's happening in the Open AI shakeup, such a red flag should not be discounted. Read the full scoop here with a grain of salt.
Private Equity Structure
Making investing in OpenAI even more complicated is the non profit corporate structure. Although they have a for-profit subsidiary, this certainly is seen as 'hair' for some would be investors. On the private markets, having a clean direct transfer opportunity in Open AI is rare, most offers are through multi-layer SPVs and have 2/20 structures, according to Venture Capital Cross. From Wikipedia:
OpenAI is an American artificial intelligence (AI) research organization consisting of the non-profit OpenAI, Inc. registered in Delaware and its for-profit subsidiary OpenAI Global, LLC. OpenAI researches artificial intelligence with the declared intention of developing "safe and beneficial" artificial general intelligence, which it defines as "highly autonomous systems that outperform humans at most economically valuable work". OpenAI has also developed several large language models, such as ChatGPT and GPT-4, as well as advanced image generation models like DALL-E 3, and in the past published open-source models.
The WOKE board
Who is Helen Toner? Here's the bio:
Helen Toner is Director of Strategy and Foundational Research Grants at Georgetown’s Center for Security and Emerging Technology (CSET). She also serves in an uncompensated capacity on the non-profit board of directors for OpenAI. She previously worked as a Senior Research Analyst at Open Philanthropy, where she advised policymakers and grantmakers on AI policy and strategy. Between working at Open Philanthropy and joining CSET, Helen lived in Beijing, studying the Chinese AI ecosystem as a Research Affiliate of Oxford University’s Center for the Governance of AI. Helen has written for Foreign Affairs and other outlets on the national security implications of AI and machine learning for China and the United States, as well as testifying before the U.S.-China Economic and Security Review Commission. Helen holds an MA in Security Studies from Georgetown, as well as a BSc in Chemical Engineering and a Diploma in Languages from the University of Melbourne.
Or in other words, a WOKE Globalist Hitman (or Hit "Person" is the PC term? Not sure.. ) who is no doubt against free speech. It was the board that initially caused the ruckus in the first place, was it an internal control structure about controlling the AI - bot Chat GPT Narrative? The Censors have a single goal and they say this openly, as the NPR logo says "We phrase the questions that make you THINK [of what we want]."
Then you've got Big Tech Censor Adam D'Angelo, whose site Quora is notorious for promoting certain narratives, and banning, blocking, and editing anyone with a dissenting opinion. See this:
And what is a “banned” writer? A “banned” writer is a censored writer. Let’s talk about censorship. Censorship is a serious slippery slope that will not make the world a better place of knowledge. Instead, censorship turns the world into a place of fear and fascism. Quora’s alleged mission statement is “to share and grow the world’s knowledge. Powerful, simple, and easy to understand.” What’s not easy to understand is that the same knowledge I devoted to sharing with the world on Quora that earned me “Top Writer 2018” — is now collapsed knowledge, and the word “banned” appears before my name. Baffled Quorans who used to follow me wonder if they are next when they notice that even a top writer who painstakingly shared her knowledge on a vast array of topics can whimsically get banned/censored. Additionally, of the nearly 40 complaints listed on the BBB (Better Business Bureau) website from other Censored/Banned Quoran writers, Quora (with a C- BBB rating) merely replies with generic and nebulous statements to the multitude of egregious and serious complaints. The replies, neatly written by Quora officials, once again place only fear and apprehension in the average Quoran reader/writer. “After reviewing our policies, we have determined that the ban was accurate, blah, blah, blah.” The average Quoran reader/writer then concludes, “Maybe I shouldn’t express my opinions on ‘that’ topic. Perhaps I, too, will be censored and banned if I write on ‘that’ topic.” Confidence Turns to Apprehension. And Apprehension Turns to Banality.
This post is from one of Quora's TOP Contributors. It would be interesting to see if these Censors are controlled by a single source, a dark hive mind consciousness of sorts, that would be really interesting and not surprising - but we'll never see the evidence of that. But we have the results, which are enough to form solid conclusions.
Then you have Tasha McCauley, who is known mostly just as the wife of Progressive Jewish Actor with 2 last names Joseph Gordon-Levitt:
Joseph Gordon-Levitt accused of 'racist' stereotyping in Don Jon Actor-director falls foul of the the Italian-American One Voice Coalition, read more:
Joseph Gordon-Levitt has been accused of promoting racist stereotyping in his directorial debut 'Don Jon'. The film, about a young man with a porn-addiction, has been attacked by the Italian-American One Voice Coalition for denigrating both Italian-Americans and Jews in the portrayals of its lead characters, Gordon-Levitt's 'Jersey Shore'-esque Jon Martello and his would-be girlfriend Barbara Sugarman. “Here we go again with the same shop-worn, racist stereotypes of Italian Americans in movies,” said Dr. Emanuele 'Manny' Alfano, the organisation's founder. “It never ends. Levitt, himself the son of proud parents who once founded the Jewish Progressive Alliance and fought for social justice causes, should be ashamed of himself for the negative portrayal of Italians and Jews in his movie.
Need we go on? We are sure these are all just coincidences, and this doesn't affect Chat GPT at all. We're sure that biases are not built into the platform, or advertising to promote the agenda of the non-objective board who controls the company? (/sarc)
Conclusion - A behind the scenes war is being fought over the control of the AI algos
We can't know what's really going on as we don't have an insider with an inside scoop. However, we also aren't naïve enough to buy the public story, that this is all just bad management. Maybe, stupidity is really what's going on here, but we're talking some very Academic stupidity, as almost all the founders are PhD scientists and/or very well credentialed programmers in their fields.
One thing is clear, the AI race is not exclusive to any company. There are hundreds of companies working on different parts of the computing ecosystem, and AI is a bucket term which has become almost meaningless. Is your alarm clock a form of AI? We think AI has become a cliche for 'technology' and that most companies are going to be embedding AI in their systems which will ultimately usher in a new generation of disruptive paradigm shift technologies.
