MSN's AI calls people "useless" in their obituaries

https://futurism.com/msn-ai-brandon-hunter-useless
Microsoft replaced its MSN reporters with OpenAI and it has begun calling recently deceased people "useless" in their obituaries among other insults. MSN news is by default pushed to the desktops of everyone with Windows, meaning boomers get the best news available.

What do you think MSN's Stallman obituary will look like, BOT?

    MSN (and other media) won't care enough about Stallman to write an obituary, not even an AI can care enough about him.

        while I appreciate people waking up to the problems of win10 and beyond, sticking to win7 is not really a tractable solution. It's filled with 0days and CVEs. Using a Linux distro is pretty much the only actual path forward. Linux can even play DX12 games while Win7 can't.

      Just set up a win10 vm to test a package on different oses. During set up it actually asks you for preferences on ads. Something like do you want to an advertisement id for personalized ads. When deselected it warns you that you'll still get the same amount of ads you'll just not be tracked. Holy fricking shit. You payed for that machine. That is "professional" software you're using.

    "Richard Stallman, the indomitable force behind the free software movement and the creator of the GNU Project, will be remembered as one of the most influential figures in the history of computing. Stallman, who sadly passed away from cancer, dedicated his life to advocating for software freedom—a legacy that will live on through the countless projects and initiatives he inspired.

    He went on to establish the GNU Project in 1983, with the goal of creating a completely free Unix-like operating system. This was followed by the launch of the Free Software Foundation in 1985, underscoring his commitment to software that users are free to study, change, and share.

    Stallman was known for his outspoken nature and remained a steadfast advocate for software freedom throughout his life. His work led to the development of the GNU General Public License (GPL), which has become one of the most widely used free software licenses.

    Stallman's philosophy on software freedom challenged and shaped the discourse around ethical computing, digital rights, and user privacy. His ideas spurred on the development of numerous free software projects and laid the groundwork for collective collaboration on free software.

    While his views were sometimes controversial, Stallman's unwavering vision and his contributions to computer science have left an indelible mark on the industry. His passing is a profound loss to the technology community, but his ideals will continue to influence and inspire generations to come.

    Richard Stallman is survived by a global community of programmers, advocates, and users who share his passion for a world where technology empowers rather than restricts. He will be missed, but his vision for a free software society remains a beacon for future innovation and advocacy."

    MSN releasing an AI generated article like this would simply mean they let this slip through. Microsoft as a result, would not invoke its' hostile policy towards free software as it usually does.

      its inherently not worthless if they're replacing human labor with it. Worth/value is a subjective parameter. Evidently saving your salary costs (ie the entire thing that keeps you alive and therefore gives you worth in the capitalist framework) is worth whatever loss in quality they get in the end product.
