ChatGPT is an AI bot that was launched in November 2022 and has been in the news recently.  Not only can it be used to write fake essays, thereby harming traditional educational practices, but it is also being used to write malware by cybercriminals.  How disruptive will ChatGPT be in the future, or other AI platforms that will undoubtedly emerge?

I'm not up to speed on this subject to comment intelligently.  All I know is Elon Musk has warned of the dangers AI development poses to humanity.  If it concerns him, I suppose I should be concerned too.  Technological disruptions can be beneficial as long as human ethics can keep pace.

Even if Trump were to be revealed as the Dark Lord of the Sith, he's still better than the last four presidents we've had.

I remember when Musk warned us of this about a decade ago.  I thought he was kind of bonkers at the time since AI seemed like one of the last things to worry about.

Then, a few years ago, I read an article that changed my mind.  It discussed the progress of how inventions were made, and how in the twentieth century, you had many smart people teaming up to invent things.  As these inventions became more and more complex, people relied on more advanced technology to help with the inventing.  Eventually, we'll hit a point at which the inventing is done by computers rather than people at all.  At that point, there will be massive advancements in technology and there will be no turning back. 

In other words, the jump to AI will come quickly, rather than gradually.  I think we're at that stage right now when we're making the transition.  In the history of inventions - the wheel, writing, movable type, photography, etc. - the jump to AI will likely be right up there at the top.  And we've got front row seats to this historical development.

Google is apparently extremely worried that ChatGPT could adversely affect their business, even to the point of rendering them obsolete.  They are now racing to create an AI that can compete.  So will this accelerate AI Armageddon for us?  Stay tuned... 

Even if Trump were to be revealed as the Dark Lord of the Sith, he's still better than the last four presidents we've had.

This would all be great as the storyline in some movie.  Not so great as the storyline from our actual news.  Scary times!
