I read a tweet from Elon Musk where describes Gradient descent as an evil action that AI are good at, despite the fact that it is just one of the old, inflexible and not-so-efficient error correction algorithms.
He is an intelligent man why would he say something like this?
Is gradient descent a backpropagation that also lacks the recursion and neural plasticity? Or is it suddenly became an black magic AI throws at its enemies?
From an article:
"Musk indicates that internet infrastructure is “particularly susceptible” to a method called gradient descent algorithm, a mathematical problem-solving process. Bad news is, AI is excellent at doing gradient descents, which can become devastating digital weaponry."
