Re: LLM. All your works belong to us.
while I've always been in Klein's camp, her guardian text is full of hot air, though no doubt pleasing to the left camp, where I belong too. But I find it irritating she always seems triggered by a keyword: 'capitalists', whatever the excuse. Let her loose and 10 min later a juicy text appears on any subject around the 'capitalists are evil'. Ironic, because to me it looks like it's become her own, personal, bash-the-capitalists, business niche she lives off. It seems she can't help but froth:
Generative AI will end poverty, they tell us. It will cure all disease. It will solve climate change. It will make our jobs more meaningful and exciting. It will unleash lives of leisure and contemplation, helping us reclaim the humanity we have lost to late capitalist mechanization. It will end loneliness. It will make our governments rational and responsive. These, I fear, are the real AI hallucinations and we have all been hearing them on a loop ever since Chat GPT launched at the end of last year.
- this is just a trait of business leaders, and business activity happens to exist SOLELY in order to make you profit off somebody else, so what's new here? In the ever-so-tighter competition they've learnt to feed the public bullshit the public wants, and do it faster and more convincingly than their competitors - or else. They're not hallucinating, they're bullshitting us (and, to a degree, themselves), nothing personal, just... business. Oh, and it works, by the way:
Though, yes, it will be 'slightly' ironic if homo sapiens takes one blind step too many this time, even though it can, but won't stop walking forward blind. Interesting times ahead. Hell, perhaps THE most interesting ever...
