It's even more disturbing the deeper down the rabbit hole you go.

Here's the one that fucked with me the most. I got straight DeJa Vu from this one, like I was actually remembering a movie that never existed.

Part of it is just because I watched so many Marvel movies. I also think the music is evocative of those mid-80s low-to-mid range direct-to-video movies. It's interesting (and a little creepy) that these are so easily created. I wonder how long we are from AI completely rewriting history, or at least gaslighting us into thinking it was different than it "was." (Or what we were taught.)

Split the thread as ChatGPT looks like the AI that could wreck human society.

Got a friend with a son who's working on ChatGPT!

So why are we surprised about these deep fakes? I thought CGI Peter Cushing was super impressive in the modern Star Wars trilogy. And the SW universe has been playing with that (Luke in Mando).

And these chatbots have been around for 20 years. Though, yes, ChatGPT might be self-aware.

I've had general unease about all the AI generated creative content since I started seeing people post their "art" incessantly on FB middle of last year.

As someone who makes a living freelance writing and providing marketing strategy to companies, it's only a matter of time before my job becomes obsolete. I mean... it's not like I'm writing groundbreaking stuff or anything like that. Mostly headlines, SEO optimized stuff, etc. And often times, I'm just the starting point for these campaigns. So they'll have a meeting with me, talk about what they need to sell and basically mine my brain for ideas on content. I give them a bunch of options, maybe tweak them once or twice, then they take what I've made and workshop it in groups or with the client's creative teams to build the final campaigns. But if these agencies I work with can take a creative brief and stick it into an AI program vs. paying me, they absolutely will... particularly when most of the time I'm just giving them ideas they can evolve.

I'm kind of amazed/horrified by the speed of the evolution of quality in the AI content as well. I don't think it really bodes well for the evolution of our brains in the long run. If humans can take the easy route, they almost always will, regardless of the detriment it has on their brains. Case in point... phone numbers. Just think back to how many phone numbers you used to know by heart as a kid... I probably knew at least 20 of my friends/family members, if not more. Now I'd be hard pressed to even tell you my wife's phone number most days without glancing at my phone.

I also wonder how long it will take FB/Google/Musk to snap up these platforms for a billion or two and then work them into their socials. Fucking scary... and, as usual, no one's sounding the alarm... or if they are, they're being ignored because folks are too busy whipping up AI generated photos of Billie Eilish in latex lingerie.

AI-written books and AI-designed books is my wet dream, as a publisher. Because this business would be amazing, and super lucrative, if only the authors didn't spend all day stepping on their own dicks.

Short legs or long dicks...? Or detachable phallus?
There will come a day for every man when he will relish the prospect of eating his own shit. That day has yet to come for me.

<typing in to Google serach engine> ... Billie... Eilish... in latex... lingerie...

The image generators are really something. (Something scary?) Word is a very near future iteration will be able to create moving images.

ChatGPT is less threatening than it seems on first glance. It's a language model, and while there's recent stories about it passing the GRE and med school exams, all it's really doing is scraping the internet and attempting to cobble what it finds into a human sounding essay. Long story short, it's a fancy Google search engine.

That said, if a studnet turns in one of the "AI generated" essays as their own, I doubt I'd know the difference if my plagiarism software doesn't flag it.

I've noticed that my AI generator - Diffusion Bee - has changed recently: it used to default to nightmarish photorealism to cartoonish productions.

I'm going to send Nacho an example.
