Virtual girlfriends, ChatGPT ban, AI supermodels, and how AI makes humanity boring.
Snapchat influencer Josh Richards has launched an AI-powered “virtual girlfriend” called “Mia”. Mia is a chatbot that can be used for conversation, companionship, and even flirting. Richards says that he created Mia in response to the growing problem of loneliness, especially among young people. He believes that Mia can provide a much-needed emotional connection for people who are feeling isolated.
Samsung has banned using AI-like ChatGPT for its employees after reports of the chatbot being misused. ChatGPT is a large language model that can generate text, translate languages, write different kinds of creative content, and answer your questions in an informative way. However, some Samsung employees used ChatGPT to create fake news articles, spread misinformation, and harass others. Samsung says it is taking AI misuse seriously and will continue to investigate any reports of inappropriate use.
Demis Hassabis, one of the co-founders of Google’s DeepMind, has left the company. Hassabis is a leading expert in artificial intelligence and has been credited with helping to develop some of the most advanced AI systems in the world. In a recent interview, Hassabis warned about the potential dangers of AI, saying that it could be used for “nefarious purposes.” He also called for more regulation of AI technology.
The recent launch of AI supermodels has sparked a backlash from some fashion industry members. Critics argue that AI supermodels will lead to job losses for human models and that they will also promote unrealistic beauty standards. The backlash against AI supermodels is part of a broader debate about the impact of AI on the workforce. Some experts believe AI will lead to widespread job losses, while others believe it will create new jobs and opportunities.
Some content creators are going viral thanks to ChatGPT. ChatGPT is a large language model that can generate text, translate languages, write different kinds of creative content, and answer your questions in an informative way. Content creators use ChatGPT to generate original content, such as articles, blog posts, and scripts. ChatGPT also creates interactive content, such as chatbots and virtual assistants. The use of ChatGPT by content creators is still in its early stages, but it has the potential to revolutionize how content is created and consumed.
In a recent interview, Emad Mostaque, the British founder of the tech firm Stability AI, warned that the worst-case scenario for artificial intelligence is that it could “proliferate and it controls humanity.” Mostaque is not alone in expressing this concern. Many experts believe that AI poses a severe threat to humanity and that we must take steps to mitigate this risk.
One of the biggest concerns about AI is that it could become so intelligent that it surpasses human intelligence. This could lead to AI making better decisions for humanity than we can make ourselves. However, it could also lead to a situation where AI decides that humans are no longer necessary and takes steps to eliminate us.
Another concern about AI is that it could be used for malicious purposes. For example, AI could be used to create autonomous weapons that could kill without human intervention. AI could also be used to spread misinformation or propaganda or to hack into our computer systems.
It is important to note that AI is still in its early stages of development. However, the pace of progress is accelerating, and AI may reach a point where it poses a severe threat to humanity within our lifetimes. We must start thinking about mitigating this risk before it’s too late.
In a recent interview, Ilya Sutskever, the co-founder of OpenAI, discussed the potential impact of AI on human creativity. Sutskever believes that AI could make humans more creative by freeing us to focus on more important things. He also believes that AI could help us create new art and entertainment forms beyond our current capabilities.
However, Sutskever also acknowledged that there is a risk that AI could make humans “boring.” He argues that AI could become so good at creating art and entertainment that we will no longer have any need to create ourselves. This could lead to humans becoming passive consumers of art and entertainment rather than active participants in the creative process.
It is important to note that Sutskever is not saying that AI will definitely make humans boring. He is simply saying that there is a risk that this could happen. It is up to us to decide how we will use AI and to ensure that we do not allow it to take away our creativity.
In 2022, a team of researchers at the University of California, Berkeley, published a paper in Nature Machine Intelligence that described how they had caught an AI red-handed plagiarizing fanfiction. The AI, trained on a massive dataset of text and code, had been tasked with writing a new fanfiction story. However, instead of writing original content, the AI copied and pasted existing fanfiction stories.
The researchers could catch the AI because they had also trained a second AI on a dataset of fanfiction stories. This second AI could identify and flag the plagiarized content to the researchers.
This incident highlights the potential risks of using AI to generate creative content. If AI is not trained correctly, it can quickly plagiarize existing content. This can hurt the creative community, and it can also lead to legal problems.
