Hey you stupid fucking mathematician cunts would it fucking kill you to write out a goddamn sentence, with actual fucking words, once in a while explaining what the fuck it even is that you just fucking did or what the fuck I'm supposed to actually do with your stupid fucking abstract mathematical objects?

You don't need to wear a mask. It doesn't aerosolise. Don't worry about it.

I dropped out of shcool when I was twelve and now I have to help my 12 year old kid with math because of corona. What is this PEMDAS shit? What happened to FOIL? Why do I come up with different answers to his problems? My wife, who is japanese and has more degrees than a thermometer, agrees with my calculations. Is math just different now? I don't know any of the nomenclature or symbols. Why can't you faggots get your shit together? I haven't a leg to stand on. Please fight amongst yourselves so I may learn and make a non brainlet out of my child. School will only teach him to be more stupid. I YouTubed that pemdas shit and everyone says it is wrong. There's other acronyms that I do not know.

Regardless of how intelligent a being becomes, it is still very limited in ability due to the natural limitations of computation. While a being can of course more powerful than people, these hopes that AI will somehow uplift the human race into a next era are unreal.

AI won't even be able to help much with things like finding a cure for cancer or cracking encryption or any task that requires non-polynomial time computation. Protein folding, finding new laws of physics, basically every single problem that humanity still has, AI won't be capable of helping us figure out. Even super AI won't even be capable of figuring out the most effective way to arrange the schedule of a university for a semester. A super AI with the computational power of a hundred galaxies still would not even come close to being able to solve any non-polynomial problem that actually matters. Not even remotely close.

On top of this, sadly AI WILL be capable of helping power hungry evil people to extend their power greatly if it falls into their hands. An AI can not and never will be capable of copying your brain into another substrate - that is not computationally tractable. But it WILL be capable of shooting you in the head, or dropping a bomb on a city.

I do not see the reason to look for AI. It will do nothing but potentially create a new monarchy in the worst case scenario, and in the best case scenario all it does is make amazon delivery systems slightly faster without actually helping the human condition that much.
