Keywords

💡Deepfakes

Deepfakes refer to media content that has been artificially manipulated using deep learning techniques to make it appear genuine. The video mentions deepfake technology being used to create fake videos that make it hard to distinguish real from fake. This relates to the theme of emerging AI capabilities blurring lines between reality and fiction.

💡AI

AI (Artificial Intelligence) is the broad concept of machines being able to carry out tasks in a way that resembles human intelligence. The video discusses AI tools like ChatGPT for text generation, Midjourney for image creation, and the emerging Sora technology for video synthesis. These examples illustrate the increasing sophistication and potential misuse of AI capabilities.

💡Propaganda

Propaganda refers to information, especially of a biased or misleading nature, used to promote a particular political cause or point of view. The video warns about the potential for advanced AI tools to be misused for more powerful propaganda campaigns by entities like governments or the entertainment industry with specific agendas.

💡Advertisements

Advertisements are promotional messages aimed at persuading the audience to take some action, typically to purchase a product or service. The video cautions that unconstrained AI capabilities could make advertisements even more effective and manipulative in parting people from their money (representing their valuable time/life).

💡Objective morality

Objective morality refers to a set of moral truths or principles that are universal and independent of individual or cultural viewpoints. The video suggests turning to our Creator for objective morality, as opposed to the subjective morality propagated by untrustworthy human sources empowered by AI technology.

💡Laziness

Laziness is the disinclination to engage in physical or mental effort. The video expresses concern that AI tools that automate creative processes could breed laziness by eliminating the need to develop real skills and interact with the physical world, promoting an unhealthy sedentary lifestyle.

💡Escapism

Escapism refers to the tendency to seek distraction from reality, typically through entertainment or indulgence in fantasies. The video cautions that combining AI-generated content with virtual reality could enable unhealthy escapism from the real world into manufactured realms of desire and fantasy.

💡Contingency

Contingency means dependence on certain circumstances or prior causes. The video invokes the philosophical contingency argument, which states that since everything is dependent on something else, there must be an independent, necessary being (God) on which all contingent things ultimately depend. This is used to counter the delusion of human self-sufficiency promoted by AI capabilities.

💡Moderation

Moderation means avoiding extremes and observing reasonable limits. The video advises using AI tools in moderation, understanding their limitations, and not becoming deluded about human capacities and dependencies, striking a balanced perspective on their role.

💡Boundaries

Boundaries refer to limits or constraints on what is permissible or acceptable. The video emphasizes the importance of setting boundaries and filters when using emerging AI tools, to prevent manipulation and ensure adherence to moral principles amid their unconstrained potential.

rewards smile to Jenna asalamu alikum

play00:10

guys and welcome to another episode of

play00:12

smile to Jenna loads of videos you may

play00:15

have seen of deep fake technology where

play00:17

people are asking you to guess which is

play00:19

deep fake and which is real we have

play00:21

things like chat GPT you tell it what

play00:24

sort of letter you want and it will

play00:26

create one you ask it to create a plan a

play00:29

code it will will do it in its entirety

play00:32

you also have mid Journey just type in

play00:34

what sort of picture you want and it

play00:36

will create it from scratch and now the

play00:39

next step is being epitomized by Sora

play00:43

just like the previous two that I

play00:44

mentioned you just type in one line and

play00:47

it will create a video from scratch for

play00:51

you the examples that we can see here

play00:54

you'll see a Japanese lady just one line

play00:58

has been typed in and that's it it's

play01:01

created it and it looks so realistic

play01:04

this woman doesn't exist now this hasn't

play01:07

been released to the public yet but just

play01:10

like chat GPT it will one day be

play01:13

accessible they are just ironing Out The

play01:15

Kinks so it can't be misused I'm not

play01:18

here to blow their trumpet nor am I here

play01:21

to tell you stay away from it it's evil

play01:24

just like with chat GPT and mid journey

play01:27

and the likes we use them and to be fair

play01:30

I will probably end up using Sora as

play01:33

well but using something without any

play01:37

boundaries and constraints leaves you

play01:39

open to being manipulated and troubled

play01:43

so what we're going to deal with is a

play01:45

few things that will help set those

play01:48

boundaries for us and understand how

play01:51

things like that can really take us off

play01:54

course so the first one is the

play01:57

entertainment industry today the enter

play01:59

entertainment industry has certain

play02:02

constraints yeah budget time

play02:06

expertise editors but imagine that these

play02:10

storytellers now don't have those

play02:13

constraints their storytelling will be

play02:15

taken completely to a different level

play02:18

which means their powers to engage and

play02:21

distract us will be much more stronger

play02:24

and effective and in turn if the movie

play02:27

is to do with propaganda as we're seeing

play02:29

with the Modi controlled media in India

play02:32

weaponizing Bollywood as also has

play02:35

happened in Hollywood with the likes of

play02:37

American Sniper but having a tool like

play02:40

this that has no boundaries and

play02:42

constraints makes their propaganda more

play02:46

powerful so what you'll have to do is

play02:49

make sure that you have the boundaries

play02:52

there that that propaganda has to go

play02:55

through all those filters before getting

play02:58

to you and the next point I wanted to

play02:59

mention was adverts the sole purpose of

play03:02

adverts is to get you to part with your

play03:05

money and like a wise person once said

play03:08

your money is your time because you

play03:11

spent 3 hours to get x amount of money

play03:16

so what you're doing is you're bartering

play03:19

with your time and time is life there's

play03:22

no machine on Earth that gives you more

play03:25

time time is what makes life so valuable

play03:29

so add verts will become more and more

play03:32

effective because again they won't be

play03:33

constrained by budgets by editing stuff

play03:37

even by availability of things imagine

play03:39

if you can just type something it's as

play03:42

if it's by Magic yeah saying a spell and

play03:47

boom you see it materialize number two

play03:50

it will make us doubt our senses just

play03:53

like now loads of videos you may have

play03:55

seen of deep fake technology where

play03:57

people are asking you to guess which

play03:59

which is deep fake and which is real how

play04:02

are you going to know how is the average

play04:04

person who's busy working a 9 to5 going

play04:07

to have the time to sit down and look at

play04:10

all of these intricacies so the question

play04:12

would be who will we trust what the

play04:15

people that are behind the curtains the

play04:18

people that are pulling the strings our

play04:20

leadership that are supporting war

play04:23

criminals these individuals no thanks

play04:27

this should motivate us to draw closer

play04:30

to our creator who gives us objective

play04:33

morality and not subjective morality

play04:36

which changes from culture to culture

play04:38

from People to People number three

play04:41

laziness oh yes indeed because editing

play04:44

is a craft you spend Years Learning how

play04:47

to edit going on softwares lighting

play04:50

you've got certain people that are

play04:51

experts in lighting how to light up a

play04:53

scene he you just type it in and it

play04:56

happens so what is this really going to

play04:58

teach us that you don't really have to

play05:00

learn this stuff all you need to do is

play05:03

just memorize certain prompts yes indeed

play05:06

just memorize type just do this and you

play05:09

get what you want whil before you would

play05:11

have to go out there Venture learn study

play05:14

interact with people you become more

play05:17

socially Dynamic but rather today

play05:20

especially because of social media and

play05:22

the likes we're socially awkward people

play05:24

are fantastic when they're using their

play05:26

thumbs but face to face it's awkward and

play05:29

of of course if war was to break out and

play05:32

Technology got affected and we're back

play05:34

to living on the elements how on Earth

play05:37

is this or this going to be of any help

play05:40

so don't become lazy and not train your

play05:43

kids up with the elements go camping

play05:45

with them go fishing with them teach

play05:47

them how to grow their own Foods teach

play05:49

them about these things also teach them

play05:51

about Sora and AI as well not as the

play05:56

primary way of seeking income and a

play05:59

livelihood because there's Baraka in

play06:02

haraka yeah there is blessing in

play06:05

movement yeah scientists tell us this

play06:07

sitting at home just going like this and

play06:10

producing a blockbuster isn't going to

play06:12

be good for you in the long run so use

play06:15

it Ai and all of these things as a

play06:17

secondary as a support number four if

play06:20

you combine these with the headsets the

play06:23

virtual reality headsets it's as if you

play06:26

can create your own world escape from

play06:29

The Real World into a world of desires

play06:33

whatever you want you just type in it's

play06:36

like paradise

play06:38

o and this is what the atheists say oh

play06:42

you guys are worried about the hairafter

play06:44

there is no Paradise make this world

play06:46

your Paradise but then it's everybody

play06:48

for themselves because everybody wants

play06:51

to accumulate as much as they can and to

play06:54

get joy for themselves why care about

play06:56

somebody else if you're going to become

play06:58

dust so similarly again it's a form of

play07:00

escapism from The Real World yeah you

play07:02

don't want to just be going to work

play07:04

miserable because if you know that the

play07:07

real life means something then what

play07:09

you're going to do is I'm not happy at

play07:11

work I need a change of career but how

play07:13

you going to do that if you know at home

play07:15

I just go into my other world again it's

play07:17

like a Black Mirror episode the guy goes

play07:19

to work the whole day and then he comes

play07:22

home and you know he's got his own

play07:25

little world there where he's the boss

play07:28

and lastly I use the words Magic

play07:31

Paradise which is going to give us the

play07:34

delusion that human beings are the bizel

play07:37

yeah we are the real deal and that's

play07:40

going to delude us from our dependencies

play07:43

like we are dependent upon God for

play07:47

everything think about it we're

play07:48

dependent on something that's dependent

play07:50

on something you cannot have an infinite

play07:53

regress of dependent things there has to

play07:55

be something that's known

play07:56

philosophically as a necessary being

play08:00

this is titled as the contingency

play08:02

argument for the existence of God so no

play08:05

matter what technology we have it's not

play08:06

going to protect us from death it's not

play08:08

going to stop us from eating we're still

play08:10

going to need to eat we're still going

play08:12

to need to go to the toilet let them not

play08:14

delude us into thinking that we are

play08:16

something bigger than we are so when

play08:20

they do come use them in moderation

play08:22

understand their limitations and do not

play08:24

become deluded let's leave it there guys

play08:27

until next time asalamu
