Re: Is there any longer a point to arguing that there's no real AI out there?
The phrase alone may be one of the most successful marketing terms of all time.
AI has always been mostly marketing hype.
In the early days, it was marketing ideas in academia. Now it is marketing products. But it has always been marketing. It was never substance.

I'm not panicking. We will adapt.
I think I may actually read the Bible now instead of watching apologists and others comment on it.
I won't hold my breath waiting for that to happen.
My question is this:
When does (government oversight) begin to stifle free speech in the interest of "protecting everyone" from lies and misinformation?
When the Republicans are in charge. You can see this happening right now in Florida (and in several other red states).

You still don't understand "authoritarian".

Re: ChatGPT Properly Described
Tools like ChatGPT don't think, don't understand, don't create. They are amazing tools, but there's nothing intelligent about them.
This has been my view all along.
Yes, they are impressive tools. And people were in awe at that. But too many people gave too much weight to that awe. Common sense is starting to return.

Re: Psychedelic Chat
Yes, it seemed pretty obvious that "stick thingies" was referring to chopsticks. I'm not sure how Percy missed that.

YoRe: Psychedelic Chat
You did ask for something by a semi-literate person, so you shouldn't be expecting strict grammar and logic.
