      Why pay slavs when you can pay street shitters half the money to do the needful?

        Because they don't do the needful.

    hilariously moronic, they only use this oddly specific reference for analogy because it's a 'hot' thing, signaling how well informed they are
    and a half assed explanation why it is fitting, as if anyone could believe that the reference to this specific 'hot' thing is justified

    I'm on the panel for an internal AI SIG at a very large tech company that did layoffs recently. There was zero internal use of AI and it was expressly forbidden for anyone to use; domains blocked, application whitelisting etc.

      I work for a major IT consulting firm and this is the case for both ourselves and all of our clients. Any company of any significant size has legal departments putting big huge DO NOT USE stamps on anything Generative-AI-related, especially while the NYT case is on-going. Even disregarding current lawsuits, legal departments do not trust AI companies to handle confidential information as well as they legally need to, and that's not something OpenAI or whoever can handwave and go "don't worry about it, if anything happens we'll take care of it". The data privacy question is much, much more important for enterprises than copyright kerfuffles.
      Everybody talking about AI replacing jobs has not seen all the hilarious headlines of companies that have actually let AI replace jobs. It is in no way, shape or form ready for widespread rollout.

        Our department has MS corporate accounts or whatever that supposedly dont record anything but were warned that we are still responsible for anything that we produce even if it was through AI

        Which is still insane because our department has access to personal record of tens of millions of people

          Yeah that's what we have too, legal still said not to touch it because like you said, the liability chain isn't established yet (and good luck suing Microsoft) and nobody wants to be the first company (or employee) to FAFO.

    Yes, but it doesn't have much to do with AI. It was already over because nearly all nutech is wildly unprofitable. AI was just a little hype meme to finish the ride.

    If AI productivity leads to layoffs they sound smart.
    If they had hired bunch of useless fricks that did no productive work that would mean they are moronic.
