ChatGPT and the Cult of A.I.
A.I. Hype is reaching a precarious pitch in December, 2022.
#ChatGPT heralds a wave of enthusiasm over Conversational A.I.
If misinformation travels fast, how fast does hype travel on today's internet?
The Microsoft backed startup OpenAI has set off an unbridled stream of over-optimism about what GPT-3.5 can accomplish.
ChatGPT is scary good. We are not far from dangerously strong AI.

Aaron Levie on Twitter: "We're entering an era of AI-first software, which has the potential to create supercycle of opportunity and disruption in software not seen since mobile and cloud. This will be fun. / Twitter"
I feel lucky to be alive when technological marvels are invented every week. The rapid progress makes life more fun!

The Internet Thinks A.I. is Real
It's not just dozens of posts like this, it's thousands. Nearly as if Silicon Valley decided 1 million users on the #ChatGPT demo meant A.I. will live up to the hype in the 2020s.
The sad truth is Silicon Valley promises or hype (also that benefit its VC sector) rarely does live up to the promises or hype.
Let's just assume the limited demo by OpenAI is real, what tools would it launch?
🔥 The Revolutionary New Tool for Conversation and Text Generation
1. ChatGPT for Google Chrome Extension
2. A browser extension that augments your ChatGPT prompts with web results.
3. ChatGPT for Mac, living in your menubar.
4. 🔎 Neeva. evolutionising search with LLMs and an ad-free, privacy-first model. (not directly ChatGPT related)

What is GPT-3.5?
I've never read so many A.I. articles as I have about ChatGPT or seen so many Tweets or LinkedIn posts about a single topic in A.I. that generated so much hype and misinformation if I am to be honest.
It's as if public relations has become a form of mass collective delusion. Everyone is seriously entertaining what this flawed demo will do to society:
I don't think #ChatGPT is going to kill academia or replace good writing. I think it is going to become like autotune. People will use it as a crutch and it will relentlessly standardise the written voice.

Everyone from lawyers to coders are talking about #ChatGPT as if it will disrupt them.
Not to mention automating annoying work tasks:
Just discovered that ChatGPT is perfect for writing work emails! No more struggling to find the right words, it's a game changer for my productivity. #chatGPT

Then there's this particularly insincere talk about how it will disrupt Google.
People are making generalizations about how A.I. will transform their entire industries as if overnight.
How will #ChatGPT change education?
1. More flipped classrooms. (Video lectures as "homework," hands-on projects in class.)
2. Fewer take-home exams.
3. The rise of a new breed of oral exams. (Dissertation defense meets Socrates meets TED Talk.)

OpenAI will have to make a special kind of "watermark" to protect from abuse, but can it generalize to all the potential use cases?
In the second week of the demo, there is also hype about the hype:
#ChatGPT is just an amazing tool.

ChatGPT is not a product, it's not even trained on real-time web data, it's not crawling the web, it's not the next TikTok. It's a curiosity stuck sometime in 2021. It likes to apologize to pretend it's a good citizen. It's a commercial test for OpenAI to get more funding from Microsoft, in order to release GPT-4.
But the profiteers will run on the hype:
New wave of startups coming. Their stack:
- landing page
- form input + stripe button
- ChatGPT api
- output displayed/emailed
Who can make money the quickest?!

Because that's what internet gangsters do, all Ads and profiteering.
All supposedly the next "disruptive technology":
This Chrome extension shows #ChatGPT answers alongside Google search results. #useful

All mostly cult-of-AI whoring that the corporations who push "A.I. for Good" love to hear.
But fuck Elon Musk and the ghost in the machine and this Transhumanistic bullshit.
An internet so full of free speech and propaganda, it makes your ears ring.
Even Engineers thinking ChatGPT can save them time:
Among all the cool things #ChatGPT can do, it is super capable of handling and manipulating data in bulk, making numerous data wrangling, scraping, and lookup tasks obsolete.
Let me show you a few cool tricks, no coding skills are required!

Humanity is heading straight to the ship of Monopoly Capitalism and Surveillance Capitalism like they are embracing the mother-ship.
But have TikTok, Twitter and LinkedIn become nothing more than echo chambers manipulated by powerful big actors?
Why do you suppose we are all migrating off Twitter and going to places like Post News?
Because, we can sense something is just a bit off in all of this in 2022.
A.I. is not going to save us from inflation, Covid-19, social unrest and geopolitical conflict and competition. The internet is no longer the grand experiment of an escape it once was. It has caused in 30 years, serious damage to society and our mental health.
Just don't tell Microsoft, Google, Amazon or Meta that. They don't want to hear it.
