Dungeon Master

In about an hour, Battlestar Galactica starts again. Who else watches? Anyone else pumped for the coming episode?

Personally, I'm stoked. I don't usually get too excited about TV series, but this one's got me absolutely hooked. Normally I'd record it, but I can't risk not having time to watch it tomorrow :P

Never watched it, but from what I've heard, the show took the story from the books, horribly maimed it, and then shat on its dessicated husk.

Ergo, I'm not very likely to see it.

For a second when I saw this thread's title, I thought it stood for "Back Street Girls" :lol:

For some reason, a lot of the stuff on Sci-fi turn me off. Especially the sci-fi original movies; the story line and dialogues are cheezy as fuck and usually aren't good.

But they need ways to not fantasize (Star Wars, etc) nor keep too much connection to modern day (Star Trek's technology).

I appreciate sci-fi, but exaggerating the year and plot (Year 2552, Humans with 20th century technology and "Spartans" on Africa - Halo series), then follows what I listed, it sucks.

Responsible for my own happiness? I can't even be responsible for my own breakfast

You should give BSG a shot. The storyline is compelling and it doesn't rely on its sci-fi setting as a crutch. It's more like a drama set in space than traditional sci-fi.

all i am is a contrary canary
but i'm crazy for you
i watched you cradling a tissue box
sneezing and sniffling, you were still a fox

NudeRaider -- Dem0n
Dem0n shouted: who said you were crossing a line
NT kinda did Ultraviolet
Ultraviolet shouted: I always thought it was kind of messed up to impersonate someone without their permission, but I guess that's artistic license for you. When you get into the realm of using AI to do it.. it seems even worse to me, but I'm not sure why

Zoan -- and tbh no, this is exactly the type of thing ai should be used for. Now if you were monetizing it, I would say you should emohasize you used ai for the voicelines
[2023-12-08. : 8:29 pm]
Zoan -- he asked if "am I now crossing a line"

Oh_Man -- but if i want to make a LOTR map and use AI generation to give aragorn etc more voice lines am I now suddenly crossing a line? wen did we get so snowflakey
[2023-12-08. : 2:23 pm]
Oh_Man -- well we been doing dodgy stuff in SC for ages playing resident evil and helms deep maps - we dont own the rights to them

Ultraviolet -- NudeRaider
NudeRaider shouted: Ultraviolet absolutely. You can count me among those folks. ;) But I understand it. It's a silly name only kids find funny. However to know that and still own it that would be the manliest move in my eyes.
Yeah, I can appreciate that perspective. I've used so many handles over the years, I think I had less attachment to NerdyTerdy than some of the folks here. Just never changed my name much here cause it was expensive :P I still kind of like the NT name, but definitely prefer Ultraviolet. I think UV has been my handle for around half my life at this point O.o

NudeRaider -- So the question is will we as a society become resilient against these forms of attacks? Either by detecting or accepting? Find new ways to deal with it? I guess we will have to wait and see.

NudeRaider -- da real donwano
da real donwano shouted: Society is not ready for the AI power we're being given. I'll die on that hill.
"social media" is imo a much better example for "society was not ready for it". We haven't seen yet where AI will lead us. It has a lot of potential for good, but then again, so had social media. For now the only potential for abuse in AI that I see is in forgery of various kinds.

NudeRaider -- Oh_Man
Oh_Man shouted: guys what are your thoughts on AI voice cloning vs someone doing impressions. why is one moral and the other immoral? or do you think both are fair game
For me it's the intent that make the difference, not the method. If you copy someone for profit or harm, then that's immoral. If your goal is satire then all bets are off. I think people are just afraid to be deceived because AI removes skill from the equation and painting AI usage as immoral is their weak attempt to defend against it.
