Great. Now all the AI bots will just be saying "This" and "came here to say that."

[-] circuitfarmer@lemmy.world 47 points 2 months ago

"ChatGPT, solve this problem for me."

"As an AI language model, username checks out."

[-] Damage@slrpnk.net 30 points 2 months ago

"Are you me?"

"Reddit moment"

"poop knife xDD hehe"

There's so much actually great content posted across reddit over the years, it blows my mind that people decided that was something that needed to be mentioned all the time.

[-] SkippingRelax@lemmy.world 7 points 2 months ago

Well... We all knew that was coming. If you still have an account haven't done so, now's a good time to purge your account!

[-] bamboo@lemm.ee 37 points 2 months ago

Unless you live in the EU or California, odds are that just deletes the public data, I’m sure Reddit retains it and would sell it.

[-] AlexWIWA@lemmy.ml 18 points 2 months ago

Reddit account data has been training AI for over a decade. If you ever used it, you're already in a training set

[-] bobs_monkey@lemm.ee 12 points 2 months ago

Better yet, use an overwrite script to help turn their training models to jelly

[-] AbouBenAdhem@lemmy.world 12 points 2 months ago* (last edited 2 months ago)

That will remove your account from public view, but will it remove it from the data they use for AI training?

If not, you’re just enhancing the value of their proprietary data.

I'd be very surprised if comments weren't versioned in some way, so even if you delete or rewrite that data, it's probably still there and a part of training data.

So they're cashing in by selling other people's conversations.


[-] cosmicrookie@lemmy.world 33 points 2 months ago

Imagine AI mods trained by reddit mod models.

[-] rickyrigatoni@lemm.ee 18 points 2 months ago

I would love a GPT model that just replies to every prompt with "Ya'll can't behave."

FYI: reddit orphans content. In other words your posts/comments are undeletable.

I found instances of such late last year by way of search results. I clicked a username to see more posts by that account. The only content on their profile page was a final deletion message about the API changes.

Their post history was discoverable by using " site:reddit.com" on Google. All of their posts/comments still show up under their username instead of the normal [deleted]. Clicking the username takes you to their empty profile page.

So what we know from this now is that reddit has been saving original submissions. Whereas before their claim was that only the last edits are stored. Which is why the deletion scipts became a thing. People took it on good faith that we could delete our posts. At some point they stopped doing that. Or perhaps it was all a lie the whole time. Who knows.

You know how artists can poison their images for AI... We need a way to poison content on Reddit

[-] remotelove@lemmy.ca 56 points 2 months ago

I would say most of the content is already poison.

[-] cupcakezealot@lemmy.blahaj.zone 27 points 2 months ago

i think that's just called posting on reddit

[-] FaceDeer@kbin.social 13 points 2 months ago

If you're talking about Glaze or Nightshade, those techniques are not proven to be particularly effective. Lots of people want them to work but that doesn't make it so.

[-] dylanTheDeveloper@lemmy.world 11 points 2 months ago

Shit posts would do it. That'll turn the AIs into morons who spurt out "rizz" and "skibidi" instead of anything useful

[-] THE_MASTERMIND@feddit.ch 31 points 2 months ago

I am waiting for an LLM that trained on 4chan it would be pure gold.

[-] DangerBit@lemmy.world 30 points 2 months ago

There's nothing stopping anyone doing the same with lemmy posts though is there?

[-] meyotch@slrpnk.net 13 points 2 months ago

NO! There isn’t, lemmy is one giant honeypot.

Alt title: Reddit looking to steal value from their millions of free users

I'm Jack's complete lack of surprise.

[-] Flumpkin@slrpnk.net 15 points 2 months ago

It's a power grab. They'll justify control over the training data with intellectual property which keeps it out of the hands of everyday people but they stole the "intellectual property" from us in the first place. Then they'll control the "means of generation".

[-] Tak@lemmy.ml 7 points 2 months ago

I'm just wondering what the hell they're expecting to teach this AI off Reddit user data. Reddit has been scraped for years and most of what could have been learned has already been used I'd assume.

Reddit has been more and more video based lately and it feels to me like it is becoming a less algorithmic version of TikTok.

[-] athos77@kbin.social 9 points 2 months ago

Spez has spent his entire time as CEO chasing the latest tech shiny - reddit crypto, reddit NFTs, reddit video a la TikTok. And he's always managed to do it after the craze has started to peak. So now he's chasing the latest shiny, reddit AI, starting a full year after everyone else already released their products.

He's late yet again, and he's proven repeatedly that's he's failed to understand reddit's greatest strengths and value. This "reddit AI content" and the IPO is his last chance to get some value out of reddit, and his last chance to make money for nothing because no one is going to hire him in a leadership role ever again. I just wonder if he's smart enough to understand that, or whether he's just hoping to get enough money to fully build out and stock his personal doomsday bunker.

This is why I deleted my posts. Also, 60 million is a jokingly lowball figure.

I wonder how reddit users feel about this. I wouldn't know, I DNS blocked the site months ago.

This is going to produce the saltiest AI the world has ever seen.

"Hey reddit ai , give me an idea how to balance my budget and pay my student debt, mate". "here ya go, I got a noose for you. Also I'm not your mate, dude".

" Hey reddit ai, draw for me a house with a genz family". Here ya go. " Hey reddit ai, why did you show me a pic of a highway ramp with homeless people?"

[-] queermunist@lemmy.ml 10 points 2 months ago

Just think, in 1000 years your body will be long dead but you'll be forced to live on as a poster! Death is not an option. 😌

[-] cupcakezealot@lemmy.blahaj.zone 8 points 2 months ago

what could go wrong with training your ai based on the posts of the most racist and misogynistic people on the internet?

[-] dylanTheDeveloper@lemmy.world 12 points 2 months ago

My god they'll create a super redditor

[-] TrickDacy@lemmy.world 11 points 2 months ago

Damn Facebook is owned by Reddit now?

[-] pennomi@lemmy.world 11 points 2 months ago

It’s not 4chan… but someone did train one of those once.

[-] AbouBenAdhem@lemmy.world 7 points 2 months ago

That varies by subreddit, which might actually help in training LLMs to recognize the difference.

[-] Fixbeat@lemmy.ml 7 points 2 months ago

I wouldn't like having my Shitposts harvested.
