  • it'll still be funny to respond "at your mom's house" in all languages.
  • Don't think I ever saw the episode where the Universal Translator becomes sentient just because it understands a few languages and takes over the Enterprise, causing Picard to force a warp core breach to destroy the ship...

    Might have made a good one though... If a little dumb that just because it can convert one word to another doesn't mean it's sentient...

    My computer can do binary to text translation many times faster than a human, doesn't mean it's alive.

  • It seems like we may be approaching the much-feared singularity, where AI surpasses human control and rapidly transforms society. But before we all start stocking up on canned goods and hiding in underground bunkers, let's remember that this "singularity" is based on one company's metric of how quickly professional human editors can fix AI-generated translations compared to human ones.

    So before we start panicking about machines taking over the world, let's just remember that it's not a sure thing and could just be a case of a company trying to drum up some publicity. Besides, if the robots do take over, at least we'll have accurate translations for all the "I'm sorry, Dave. I'm afraid I can't do that" moments.
