And the bigger AI race you should pay attention to
The whole AI field is concerning to me. I don’t like software having the ability to “think.” It is already hurting creative types like illustrators. I imagine many more jobs will be lost in several fields. It will probably write web copy and ads eventually. And of course, we know that what was once science fiction can become science fact. Satellites for example. IPhones, etc. Those old movies about robot takeovers may end up being true. Machine have no moral compass (of course, neither do most large corporations.) 😉
Also, really? Justine Moore bringing up Clippy after all these years? May it rest in peace and never return—IMHO—Clippy was an obnoxious pain and the world is safer now.
Interesting stuff. This is just the newest rabbit hole. I've played with both chatGPT and midjourney. It does not take long to figure out a way to use AI to make something I want to do—easier to do. And it seems that is the point of working smarter, not harder (my motto). However, we are no more prepared to keep AI from wrecking our lives than we were with social media. Like all tech advancements, it is wonderful and sucks at the same time.
