# Vibes

Neural networks just assess vibes, they are the literal technical implementation of “no thoughts, just vibes”.

Vibes are very similar to the approximations machine learning systems use. Both suffer from Goodhart’s Law

On context-less data: Like vibes, these metrics carry no context or narrative; they can tell you nothing about how or why something might be desirable

Is intentionality derivative with vibes/qualia too?
