Trump, nouveau visage de la Singularité ?

Trump, nouveau visage de la Singularité ?

« Trump, c’est de la pulsion pure, sans programme ni croyance permanente, et en cela il est semblable à un algorithme de machine learning. Ce serait une erreur de croire qu’il possède une stratégie, au-delà de faire ce qui fonctionne, ce qui veut dire, en un sens strictement étroit, ce qui est susceptible d’attirer l’attention sur lui. »

Et si la Singularité Technologique, cet hypothétique remplacement de l’être humain par une Intelligence Artificielle, prenait le visage de Donald Trump ? C’est ce que se demande Cathy O’Neil (@mathbabedotorg), l’auteure du fameux Weapons of maths destruction (voir nos articles), dans un

A Better Place 2 Die

Moonbeam Levels is an unreleased song recorded on 6 July 1982 (the day before Lady Cab Driver), at Sunset Sound, Hollywood, CA, USA. NPG Records and Warner Bros. announced in October 2016 that Moonbeam Levels will be released as the only previously-unreleased track on the first posthumous compilation of Prince’s music, Prince 4ever.
It was never placed on a configuration of the 1999 album, but was considered for inclusion on the aborted Rave Unto The Joy Fantastic album (different from the 1999 album Rave Un2 The Joy Fantastic), and was included as the ninth and final track on the mid-January 1989, configuration of the album before it was abandoned when Prince began work on the Batman soundtrack album.
In early 2002, during an online chat to promote the second year of the NPG Music Club, the moderators asked if members would be interested in a pristine copy of Moonbeam Levels, hinting that it might be available as part of the membership package. The song, however, remained unreleased.
It is not yet known if the version planned for inclusion on Prince 4ever is the same version as was recorded in 1982, or if Prince did any additional work on the track at any other point.

Yesterday I tried 2 write a novel but I didn’t know where 2 begin
So I laid down in the grass tryin’ 2 feel the world turn
Boy loses girl in a rain storm, nuclear World War III
All that’s left is pain and sorrow, as far as he’s concerned

He says please send all your moonbeam levels 2 me
Please send all your moonbeam levels 2 me
Please send all your moonbeam levels 2 me
I’m lookin’ 4 a better place 2 die

Maybe he’s lookin’ 4 a different world
Maybe he’s lookin’ 4 a brand new high
Maybe he would like a nice condo overlookin’ the rings of Saturn
Maybe he wants affection instead of a plastic life
Maybe he doesn’t know what he wants at all

He says please send all your moonbeam levels 2 me
Please send all your moonbeam levels 2 me
Please send all your moonbeam levels 2 me
I’m lookin’ 4 a better place 2 die

A newborn child knows nothing of destruction
Nothing of love and hate
What happens in between is a mystery
Because we don’t give a damn about his fate

He said he’ll never keep diaries 2 learn from his mistakes
Instead he’ll just repeat all the good things that he’s done
Fight 4 perfect love until it’s perfect love he makes
When he’s happy then his battle will be won (It’s never 2 late)

Please send all your moonbeam levels 2 me
(Send your.. send 2 me)
Please send all your moonbeam levels 2 me
(Send your levels 2 me)
Please send all your moonbeam levels 2 me
(Sending me your.. send 2 me)
I’m lookin’ 4 a better place 2 die (Better place 2 die)

Please send all your moonbeam levels 2 me (Oh yeah!)
Please send all your moonbeam levels 2 me {x2}
He don’t, he don’t, he don’t really wanna die
He don’t wanna, he don’t wanna, he don’t wanna die {x2}
He don’t really wanna die
