    I thought the goal was to ship the masses out to space so the billionaires could enjoy the Earth in peace.

    The killer robots are just there to expedite the process of loading us onto the spaceships

    Like > 10 years ago, I remember reading about South Korea deploying autonomous patrol robots to the DMZ.

    LOL. No, they're mostly just rich boys playing with expensive toys. It's like the 21st century version of how they used to compete for who had the biggest yacht.

    Nowhere in space is as safe as the safest places on Earth. Space is a very hostile place. Even orbiting safely within the Earth's magnetic field, astronauts experience genetic damage from radiation, as well as reduced immune function, muscle wasting, and other health problems. And these are incredibly fit people.

    In completely unrelated news, I hear the personal bunker business is booming since the pandemic. I wonder when the amount of land owned by paranoid rich people in Montana will exceed that owned by ranchers.

    Turkey is said to have used the first fully autonomous drones in combat in Libya earlier this year. Israel has had fully autonomous mini tanks patrolling the border with Lebanon for a couple of years. Russia has been flight testing S-70 Okhotnik and it should go into service with SU-57 next year. The US has it's carrier refueler as the first version of theirs but they are already testing the autonomous fighter drone version.

    We will all be wiped out by the autonomous drones in a few years. That is why all the billionaires are trying to GTFOOH and get to space.

    Perhaps you mean the Mesa stack?
    If only it worked with their consumer cards.

    Mesa's clover advertises 1.1 atm, but supports some 1.2 extensions. In the few workloads it works it's usually a lot faster than AMDGPU-pro and ROCm, so it has potential.

    Depending on version ROCm advertises 2.0/2.1/2.2 support for the "platform", but most devices advertise only 1.2 device support so no 2.0+ extensions. Additionally ROCm barely works on the GPUs it's supposed to support (which is a very small piece of their actual GPU portfolio). Image and GL interop are broken since ever, and only work on specific old releases like 2.0 or 3.3. We're at 4.2.0 now and they stopped supporting Polaris officially also.

    They claim ROCm is a datacenter/enterprise compute stack, but I honestly doubt any real business would invest in something that simply doesn't work. Just take a clue from the bug reports, they are clearly mostly from enthusiasts. And most are rotting on github with no response or action.

    For my GPU (RX 580) there's only one way to get 2.0 OpenCL on Linux. You'll need the old 19.50 PRO driver and force the PAL backend with env var GPU_ENABLE_PAL=1

    That tool makes me think we should just ban AI. That game cheating tool might as well be considered to be an actual kill bot. Replace the make believe video game with real life drone software, which it could control since some of those use Xbox 360 controllers, and it's literal kill bot software without changing a single line of code.
    Wow, did it just occur to you that AI could be used to power killer robots?!

    Maybe what should be illegal is building or using killer robots!

    Almost like... a guided missile? So, yeah, not really such a new or novel thing.

    We'll do what humans have always done, when faced with a better weapon. We'll build drones to fight them, and other countermeasures as well.

    There's a flip side to this, which is that I'm sure police will launch drones to chase perps at a crime scene. Kind of equivalent to police dogs, except they fly and you can track them to find where the suspect went.

    Yes, it should be "inferencing generation", but got shortened into "inferencing" by the AI community.

    Nah, that only proves that another community jargonized it first.
