It ain't me, babe

They're right, we're all doomed.


  1. The Week:
    3. AI pioneer quits Google job to warn of technology's risks
    Artificial intelligence pioneer Geoffrey Hinton said Monday he has quit his job at Google so he can speak freely about the dangers posed by AI. Hinton and two of his University of Toronto graduate students created the foundation of today's AI systems like ChatGPT in 2012. He said he now regrets the breakthrough, which he and other experts warn could be a tool for misinformation, kill jobs, and pose other risks down the road. "I console myself with the normal excuse: If I hadn't done it, somebody else would have," Hinton told The New York Times. More than 1,000 technology leaders and researchers signed an open letter in March calling for a six-month moratorium on the development of new AI systems. [The New York Times]

    1. IBM is replacing 3000 jobs with AI and that is just the start. No wonder they are trying so hard to get rid of us.

  2. Not only does the blog post sound nothing like Jack, ChatGPT whiffs on basic legal questions, so I'm not going to retire early in fear that the bots will take over. the hype is great for Microsoft's stock prices though.

  3. Snark free. I don't like it.

The platform used for this blog is awfully wonky when it comes to comments. It may work for you, it may not. It's a Google thing, and beyond my control. Apologies if you can't get through. You can email me a comment at, and if it's appropriate, I can post it here for you.
