AI seems to be the latest fad right now. Everyone is talking about it and there is a lot in the news about it. Good or bad, well if you take any notice of the news, then probably bad. Apparently, we should all be scared of it. It will take over the world and make our lives miserable. Really, I think we are doing a pretty good job of that already.
The other day I got an email from Jetpack, I need the app for my self-hosted blog, and it was telling me how I could get AI Jetpack to write my blog posts for me. I just deleted it. Not interested.
Then I got thinking about it and wondered how many people out there would like it.
If I get some Artificial Intelligence (AI) to write my posts, then are they still my posts? For me it would be the same as getting someone else to process my photos, how would they still be my images if I didn’t do them?
How will it do posts that are in my voice and how I would write them? There are just so many questions. I think you can tell what I thought of it by the fact that I deleted the email.
Here is an article I found that talks about it.
According to my computer expert, my husband, he says that AI isn’t going to take over the world. That it doesn’t have feelings and doesn’t think like we do. It is given a job and it does it.
From Dave, the only danger is in us giving AI control of a system that can harm us because we cannot predict the optimal solution the AI will calculate based on the goals we give it.
Of course, none of us really know what will happen in the future and right now it is useful for many things. I’m prepared to give it the benefit of the doubt, at the moment. Let’s just hope some moron doesn’t decide to let it have control of nuclear weapons or something like that.
I’m really curious to hear what your thoughts are on AI. Do you think it is a good thing or bad? Would you let it write your blog posts for you?
The photos really have nothing to do with AI, but most of them are at sunrise and I thought maybe photos depicting the start of new day might be appropriate as we approach new technology. What do you think?
