Demographics And Artificial Intelligence

A friend at work talked to me yesterday about an article in Signal magazine about how AI will change the culture.
The changes wrought by AI will extend throughout society in ways that exceed the effects of the computer revolution. Halal offers that, as routine knowledge jobs are eliminated, the workforce will move up to the next logical phase of development, which is “beyond knowledge.” This comprises consciousness, values, beliefs and other things that are far more important than knowledge, he says.

Humans always will have a superior method that will surpass whatever machines achieve: collective knowledge. “If we pool the knowledge of humans, then we will have something more powerful than the individual choices of the machines,” he declares. Achieving that collective strength will require pooling human judgment across the globe, which is different from the way machines will work.
This will work until demographic changes in Europe make Islam the dominant culture. At that point, AI can do what it likes because Sharia will be the law of the land.

Alternately, this will work until Europe and the US go bankrupt, after which AI can also do what it likes.

I love these articles written by pseudo-eggheads who have no comprehension of cultures outside of their cloistered universities, TV studios and movie lots. Castles are built in the clouds which are noble and beautiful and artistic. Then they come to nothing.

In the modern West, the battle is fought at the ballot box. You can't vote if you haven't been born. As the Secular Left hardens ethnic groups into adamantine blocks through their endless harping on interesectionality and social justice, it's the team what's having babies that wins. You can create all the AI algorithms you want and it won't make a bit of difference if you aren't making little versions of you at the same time.

Below is a video from a London mosque. You know, London, where the British are now a minority. Have fun with your AI computerings, but don't think you're going to budge these guys. They're serious players.

NOTE: If you are not a frequent reader of this blog, know that I am completely against identifying people by their groups. I believe in the individual, not the race, gender, class, sex, whatever. I have more in common and more brotherhood with an Ivorian immigrant friend of mine than I do with my neighbor two doors down. The Secular Left is dead wrong when it tries to jam group identity down our throats.

Having said that, you don't need to be a weatherman to see which way the wind is blowing. In the media and the academy, it's race, sex, gender all day and all night. That's idiocy, but it's the idiocy of the moment and I'm just thinking through the implications.

OK, I admit it. You lost me. I have no idea how you got from some guy's confused nattering about artificial intelligence, to how Islam is going to take over the world because we aren't having enough babies. It almost looks like you were writing two independent postings and then accidentally stuck them together. Or had some connecting thoughts that were in your head, but somehow never made it into writing. At any rate, I can't see what point in particular you are trying to make.
