Poeple do forget the onslaught that content management systems wrought. I certainly remember being recruited to build SEO spam sites in my contracting days. A lot of the same “developers will all be put out of business” concerns too. AI obviously makes these shitty tendencies even easier.
Wait, 2016?!? I’m gonna need new criteria…
What a wanker!
And I’m sure that it’s all about harvesting user information.
Bard isn’t offered in the EU. These LLMs , despite being “pre-trained” have user input as training data. Prima facie they cannot offer a right to be forgotten so they are in breach of GDPR. Whatever they say they are doing, it’s all going to data brokers in the end.
I listened to this the other week: Humans vs. Machines with Gary Marcus: Watson Part 2: How IBM’s Big Bet Failed on Apple Podcasts
Remember when IBM’s Watson was going to cure cancer? Well obviously it was actually fuck all use. What it eventually became was data sold to private equity. Nobody signed up for that. But there is where we inevitably ended up.
Oh come on, it did adorably well on Jeopardy. Totally worth it!
Can’t wait to see how janky Amazon’s AI entry will be. But wait, where would they get all the training data? “Hey Alexa, how would Amazon source an always-on stream of data of my voice, personality, daily schedule and purchasing preferences?”
What if you could uncrop the photos used in album covers? The AI can do it with mixed outcomes. Some of the gimmicks are very impressive.
I got it from here
With its ticket pricing reform, VR will use Artificial Intelligence (AI) more and more in the process.
The AI system will analyze large amounts of data, not only train ticket sales data, but also booking and passenger numbers for different days and routes. The forecasts will also be influenced by seasonal variations in demand.
“Artificial intelligence and algorithms will help, but as in other businesses, it is ultimately the human being who drives the pricing, and we will create the pricing principles ourselves,” Tyynilä explained.
The use of AI means that the price of a train journey can change several times, even on the same day, if demand fluctuates.
