  • 10/20/17--11:49: Paperclip Maximizer
  • About

    Paperclip Maximizer is a thought experiment about an artificial intelligence designed with the sole purpose of making as many paperclips as possible, which could hypothetically destroy the world or even the entire universe by converting all resources into paperclips due to instrumental convergence.

    Origin

    In 2003, Swedish philosopher Nick Bostrom released a paper titled “Ethical Issues in Advanced Artificial Intelligence,” which included the paperclip maximizer thought experiment to illustrate the existential risks posed by creating artificial general intelligence.[1]

    “Suppose we have an AI whose only goal is to make as many paper clips as possible. The AI will realize quickly that it would be much better if there were no humans because humans might decide to switch it off. Because if humans do so, there would be fewer paper clips. Also, human bodies contain a lot of atoms that could be made into paper clips. The future that the AI would be trying to gear towards would be one in which there were a lot of paper clips but no humans.”

    Spread

    On April 17th, 2009, an entry for the thought experiment was submitted to the Less Wrong Wiki.[4]

    On October 1st, 2010, Redditor DarthContinent submitted the LessWrong article to /r/programming,[2] where it gathered more than 460 points (88% upvoted) and 450 comments prior to being archived. On April 27th, 2015, the TED YouTube channel released a talk by Bostrom in which he discussed variations of the thought experiment (shown below).



    On January 6, 2015, Redditor eaturbrainz submitted a post titled “You are a paperclip maximizer who has been let out of the box. How do you destroy the world?” to /r/rational.[5]

    Games

    For the 2017 STDIO Game Jam, a paperclip maximizer video game made in Python was submitted by developer Omar Rizwan, in which the player converts various materials into paperclips.[3]

    In early October 2017, game designer Frank Lantz released the incremental game“Universal Paperclip” based on the thought experiment, in which the player controls a paperclip maximizer AI with the goal of turning all matter in the universe into paperclips (shown below).



    On October 11th, the Univesal Paperclip Wiki was created.[6] Over the next several weeks, the game was submitted to the /r/rational and /r/futorology subreddits and was reported on by several internet news sites, including Kotaku,[7] BoingBoing,[8] Venture Beat,[9] AV Club[10] and Kottke.[11]

    Overview

    Richard Spencer University of Florida Speech refers to the protests, events and controversies surrounding an appearance by white supremacist and alt-right leader Richard Spencer’s appearance at the University of Florida.

    Background

    In August 2017, following the Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville, Va, the University of Florida blocked an event that featured white supremacist Richard Spencer from speaking.[2]

    Two months later on October 10th, University of Florida President Kent Fuchs posted a video to YouTube stating that while he disagreed with Spencer’s viewed, he was legally obligated to allow him to speak. In his statement, Fuchs urged students to avoid the event and challenge Spencer’s view points.



    “First, do not provide Mr. Spencer and his followers the spotlight they are seeking. They are intending to attract crowds and provoke a reaction in order to draw the media. I urge everyone to stay away from Mr. Spencer and his followers and the Phillips Center where he will speak and the media will be assembled on October 19. By shunning him and his followers we will block his attempt for further visibility.

    Second, although I urge you to avoid the Spencer event, I ask that you not let Mr. Spencer’s message of hate and racism go unchallenged. Speak up for your values and the values of our university. Make it clear that messages of hate on our campus are contrary to those values. Mr. Spencer’s message is disproportionately hurtful to members of our Gator community who are targets of hate and violence simply because of their skin color, religion, culture, sexual orientation or beliefs. Those of us in the majority must speak up for those in the minority and make our voice of love and support heard."

    On October 12th, Richard Spencer’s white nationalist think tank, the National Policy Institute, posted on Facebook[1] that Spencer would speaking at the University of Florida in Gainesville on October 19th.



    Development

    Leading up to the speech, on October 16th, Florida Governor Rick Scott declared a state of emergency. In his statement, Scott wrote, “We live in a country where everyone has the right to voice their opinion, however, we have zero tolerance for violence and public safety is always our number one priority. This executive order is an additional step to ensure that the University of Florida and the entire community is prepared so everyone can stay safe.”[3]

    Several days later, the Gainesville mayor Lauren Poe[4] said, “here’s no question that he is a terrorist leader and that his followers look to commit acts of terror to disrupt our community.” Additionally, the University estimated that an additional $600,000 in security would be needed for the speech, which expected to attract large protests.[5]

    The event was met with hundreds of protesters, as the campus was flooded with organizers and activists chanting “go home” as Spencer led his press conference.[6]

    Arrests

    Following the event, three men were arrested for allegedly approaching a car of counter protesters, shouting “hail Hitler” and firing a handgun while threatening to kill the passengers. Two others were arrested at the event, one for possession of a firearm on school property and another for resisting an officer without violence.[7]

    Nazi Punch

    During the event, a picture of a man punching a Nazi wearing swastikas on his shirt went viral. On October 19th, 2017, the official Getty Images Twitter tweeted the picture with the caption “A man wearing swastikas is punched at a protest against white nationalist.” The post (shown below) received more than 3,700 retweets and 9,000 likes in 24 hours.



    The picture quickly went viral as people captioned the picture with references to the punching a Nazi debate. Comedian Jonah Ray Rodrigues tweeted, “Remember: punching a NAZI is never unprovoked. Because it’s an equal and opposite reaction to somebody being a NAZI.” The tweet (shown below, left) received more than 580 retweets and 3,200 likes in 24 hours.

    That day, Twitter user @nationalparke tweeted in reference to Getty’s description, “‘a man wearing swastikas’ I feel like there is maybe a word for that.” The tweet (shown below, right) received more than 14,000 retweets and 37,000 likes in 24 hours.


    That day, the photo also appeared on the /r/pics subreddit. Redditor[14] technikally posted the picture, garnering more than 10,000 points (74% upvoted) and 5,900 comments in less than 24 hours. Redditor[15] thepanichand also posted the picture in the /r/beholdthemasterrace subreddit under the title “Warm welcome for Nazis in Gainesville.” The post received more than 730 points (95% upvoted) and 100 comments in less than 24 hours.

  • About

    Paramount Pictures (also known simply as Paramount) is an American film studio based in Hollywood, California, that has been a subsidiary of the American media conglomerate Viacom since 1912.

    History

    Paramount is the fifth oldest surviving film studio in the world after the French studios Gaumont Film Company (1895) and Pathé (1896), followed by the Nordisk Film company (1906), and Universal Studios (1912). It is the last major film studio still headquartered in the Hollywood district of Los Angeles.

    Paramount Pictures dates its existence from the 1912 founding date of the Famous Players Film Company. Hungarian-born founder, Adolph Zukor, who had been an early investor in nickelodeons, saw that movies appealed mainly to working-class immigrants. With partners Daniel Frohman and Charles Frohman he planned to offer feature-length films that would appeal to the middle class by featuring the leading theatrical players of the time (leading to the slogan “Famous Players in Famous Plays”). By mid-1913, Famous Players had completed five films, and Zukor was on his way to success. Its first film was Les Amours de la reine Élisabeth, which starred Sarah Bernhardt.

    That same year, another aspiring producer, Jesse L. Lasky, opened his Lasky Feature Play Company with money borrowed from his brother-in-law, Samuel Goldfish, later known as Samuel Goldwyn. The Lasky company hired as their first employee a stage director with virtually no film experience, Cecil B. DeMille, who would find a suitable site in Hollywood, near Los Angeles, for his first feature film, The Squaw Man.

    Paramount Pictures’ first logo, based on a design by its founder William Wadsworth Hodkinson, used from 1917 to 1967.
    Starting in 1914, both Lasky and Famous Players released their films through a start-up company, Paramount Pictures Corporation, organized early that year by a Utah theatre owner, W. W. Hodkinson, who had bought and merged several smaller firms. Hodkinson and actor, director, producer Hobart Bosworth had started production of a series of Jack London movies. Paramount was the first successful nationwide distributor; until this time, films were sold on a statewide or regional basis which had proved costly to film producers. Also, Famous Players and Lasky were privately owned while Paramount was a corporation.

    The Hands Resist Him also colloquially known as The eBay Haunted Painting or The Creepy eBay Painting is a popular urban legend about a peculiar painting made in 1972 sold on eBay that supposedly was haunted. Owners of the painting as well as shoppers on eBay who came across the listing would frequently report illnesses, fainting, and possession by an “unseen entity”. Owners of the painting would also report that the boy in the canvas would frequently escape at nighttime.[1]

    Origin

    In 1972, artist and writer Bill Stoneham painted That Hands Resist Him as a painting in a group of four.[2] The painting was a recreation of a family photo of him and a neighborhood girl with added Jungian and Metaphysic symbolism, where the door represents a gate to possibilities, and the hands represent “other lives”.[3][6]

    In February 2000, it was posted on eBay with a backstory (shown below) claiming it was haunted.[4]
