    I really enjoy AI chatbots, but they are fucking toys that are occasionally useful. The idea of deploying them commercially is fucking insane.

      The best comparison I’ve seen is that they’re interns: They can do a lot of grunt work but you need to double check their results

    Shitty ass Mayor Adams: “it’s not a bug, it’s a feature”

    Hochul and Adams both need to get replaced as soon as they can be voted out, we gotta stop being fooled by Right leaning Centrists within the Democratic party, just being a “Democrat” is absolutely not good enough, especially with all of the centrist Republicans joining the party. Although it shows that if Trump loses in November and the MAGA corrupted GOP collapse the Dems are poised for becoming the new conservative party, which means the left leaning Dems should form something new, which would restore the adversarial balance that we’ve been losing since the rise of the Tea Party/Freedom caucus/MAGAs within the Republican party.

    Just one more election won by the Left could reset our entire political landscape back to the “normal” we used to know, you know, back when the government actually functioned somewhat and wasn’t almost completely hampered by treasonous fascist Christian Nationalist Nazi/Confederate/Putin-ite wannabes.🤞

    I’m glad people are making the effort to investigate all these deployments and showing people what this tech actually is. More people need to understand this isn’t some advanced intelligence. It’s neat and can be useful but is oftentimes wrong.

    The problem is that when someone fucks up you can fire them. When the AI fucks up… it’s the entire company at blame. But AI hallucinates so what do you do? Capitalism gonna capitalism I guess it’s just the price of doing business.

      These are city services, not private company.

    Statistically speaking, it’s often cheaper for a business to continue doing something illegal until it gets caught in which case they are only fined for the one instance. Often a lawsuit is cheaper than doing something the right way. Just called cost of doing business. So the fact that an AI would suggest what’s the statistically viable is no surprise.

    Part of the problem with AI is that it does not have to concern itself with the side effects or consequences of what it is suggesting. You ask the question of what is the most efficient way to do XYZ. It is going to tell you what the most effective way to do XYZ is. The fact that you’ll go to jail, or kill yourself, or cause an even bigger problem is not strictly relevant to the question of “What is the most effective way to do XYZ?”. Since the AI will never know, care about, or suffer the consequences of its suggestions means that those side effects can be completely ignored because they do not impede the task at hand.
