AI thinks that you can "melt eggs":
It’s interesting how we consider communication with language an indicator of intelligence. My cat can reason about what she wants and needs, but has to figure out ways to communicate them to me without language. Yet, we’re now interacting with something that can communicate at what appears to be the level of a human adult, but not reason. We just hope that information gets encoded into the network by virtue of the training data.
But this is precisely what I think of in terms of generative AI having the potential to lead to an “information gray goo” scenario. That the output of this tech, as it isn’t information, can trick and pollute other algorithms that we’re more dependent on. Search engines and the like. Misinformation is getting easier, not harder, as we’ve become more reliant on algorithms, and those algorithms are vulnerable. And some folks are already essentially generating a flood of generated content in an attempt to use SEO spam to get ad impressions to make “easy money”.
