    I’m an IT consultant and I had a meeting with AWS yesterday. My manager asked me to give the AWS team an overview of our solution so they could see what they could use for a new program they were pitching our clients. That’s all the information I had, so I started the meeting by saying “I’m not sure what you all are proposing, so I’m going to give you a high level but please let me know where you need more details.”

    After I had finished giving my overview, I tried to get more info out of them about what they were proposing to build. I shit you not, their response was that they wanted to "build an app that allowed the business to run with AI and ML (Machine Learning).”

    They didn’t say, “we want to solve X and Y problems” or “enable Z functionality.” Literally their entire goal was to build something with AI. I’m glad I wasn’t on camera or in person, because I literally face-palmed.

      At my last job, a lady who was on the board as the marketing manager who seemingly did nothing but pay outside firms to redesign the website every once in a while suggested in a meeting that we explore the blockchain in the midst of attempting to redesign our databases to actually be compatible.

      Given that she had spent about the previous 6 months actively sabotaging projects my and other teams were working on, as well as giving me insane nonsense projects to work on, I sighed and said oh god no.

      So anyway I don’t work there any more rofl.

      But yeah can you imagine a SQL database… including PII and other sensitive health information… on a blockchain, for some fucking reason?

        Higher ups love industry buzzwords. I’ve been in the business for over 20 years now and have learned to just keep my head down and say stuff like “I’ll look into that more to see if it’s viable.” And then just leave it at that.

        This is why I’ll never progress far in my career.

    This reminds me of the tech bros from Three Panel Soul.

    A subway sign advertises a tech startup: "Uber but for cats." Fashionable tech entrepreneurs meet, and the sign is then changed to read: "Cats on the block chain."

    Fashionable tech entrepreneurs meet again, and the sign is again changed to read: "AI Cats."

      15 years ago it was big data (Hadoop time, before cloud).

          After we kill all our objects, we put them in the A.I.

            You’re really pushing it though bud

        I got the link to work in my picture comment, but not the markdown

          In case it helps, here is how I do the markdown:

          1. make sure the link is valid - e.g. Google Image ones almost never are, without the second layer of indirection, so all of those I have to follow twice

          2. type out all of the following syntax - annoying, especially on a phone’s keyboard (I don’t use an app, just native browser): ![alternative text](linkurl)

          3. use Preview to verify that the image actually shows

          Yeah… it’s annoying, hopefully Lemmy browser support improves one day:-).

          I don’t know if any of this will help you in the slightest, but I thought I would at least try and offer!:-)

            I love that this is becoming a troubleshooting thread. Markdown link above…Memmy generates the markdown for you, so let’s see if it works.

            EDIT: seems to have worked now

          Your comment looks entirely empty to me, either viewed from my federated home instance or in its original location (but without me logged in) at https://lemmy.world/comment/9764819. I see this sometimes and always wondered what may be going on. Does it look empty to you? Any idea how it got that way - some kind of word filtering perhaps?

            It was supposed to be a picture, and yes it’s empty. I think Memmy didn’t handle the upload correctly.

              Oh that makes so much sense, and I didn’t even consider that. I was thinking rather that there’s no way I know of to even accomplish the submission of an empty string (perhaps in theory some kind of API call). Thank you for taking the time to answer:-).
