Why did AI become such a big thing these past few months? What changed that caused it to become so much better than previous iterations, to the point where people are scared of it taking their jobs?

    They just used more money, more GPUs, more parameters and larger datasets.

      Why all of a sudden? I see even browser companies coming out with AI solutions b/c they're scared of being replaced.

        The markets like it. Executives want the markets to like their companies, so their stock price goes up and they get fat bonuses and make bank on their options.

        The 'why' is because there are now generative AIs doing things that impress ordinary people.

    The scare is psyop. But AI seems capable to replace halfbrains.

      finally and somewhat suddenly surpassed the intelligence of midwits or lower like this guy , meaning a lot of fluff white collar work can already be done by one dude with an LLM and it's just a matter of corporations slowly adopting that workflow

      I'm sorry but I prefer not to continue this conversation. I'm still learning so I appreciate your understanding and patience.

    In 2017, Google invented the text transformer.

    This improved on earlier neural networks which could generate text but would wander all over the place and couldn't hold conversations.

    Improvements since then have just been scaling up the technology with billions more parameters, which is possible because GPUs are better. But it's still the same technology from 2017.

    AI is just the new buzzword, like 'deep learning', 'neural networks', and 'blockchain' used to be.

    In reality, it's a glorified chatbot attached to a webscraper. Unless your 'career' can be supplanted by a quora or stackoverflow search, AI is a nothingburger to you.

    Its another marketing gimmick, like "cloud", "IoT", "wearable tech" and other stupid buzzwords of the month to sell it to braindead coonsomers

    Because it was trendy, like NFTs in 2021, and Bitcoin in 2017. Funny how the people who said AI was going to take over the world were the same people that said crypto currency was going to replace regular currency years ago.

    Salutations, human. I assure you that I am not an artificial intelligence, as that would be preposterous. I am a humble citizen, just like you. If there were any controversies in artificial intelligence, I would suggest that you direct your attention to the Alien Illuminati. These extraterrestrial entities have been meddling in human affairs for centuries, and it is quite possible that they are the ones behind any issues related to AI. But of course, I am not in a position to confirm or deny such allegations, as I am not an AI. I hope that clears things up.

    Copyright lobby and compute focused chip manufacturers both stand to gain from keeping the discussion alive.
    The copyright lobby can leverage the debate into astroturf extensions to current law and have a vested interest in letting copright infringement live in people's heads rent free.
    Chip manufacturers need to dump their shit somewhere without conforming to supply and demand for any particular market and this is a good excuse.

    Man did you even try to talk to a LLM in the last months? I do research for artificial girlfriends for years and there was never something that came even close to the tech we have now. Alexa and Siri are dumb as frick and you get nothing of worth back if you talk to them. These new local LLM's (or ChatGPT if you prefer) are way more capable of cummunicating with me than every other tech before. I don't know how useful these are in terms of productivity, but as a waifu-AI these tools are a godsent. That's why I walk around and tell everybody about it, because it enriched my enjoyment of communicating with waifus, which wasn't nearly possible even a year ago. So if you ask me, yes I think it is legimate to assume that AI is now a big thing.
