AI

Everyday AI.

Headlines, subject lines, and business publications all say that AI is embedded in every product or service, and will be found in more as time goes on (yes, these statements are contradictory). Prove it! I’m going on a quest to see where I can find AI enabled, embedded or otherwise utilized in products. At least, this is how this post… Read More »Everyday AI.

Are AI Chips Really an important Thing?

The onslaught of products with artificial intelligence has begun. With it, comes the clamour of offerings from businesses new and old. Some applications are free (eg. chatGPT), others embedded into old products to bring them new life (eg. Bing). A variety of solutions exist for businesses (e.g. from AWS) to create AI embedded or powered products. Other companies sell components… Read More »Are AI Chips Really an important Thing?

Why AI lies (wrong answers only).

There are many sources1 that explain why language generative AI chatbots make things up, or hallucinate. It’s more fun to hallucinate why AI hallucinates. AI hallucinates because: Fake news. AI observes current human traditions of communication, and sees fake news is prevalent. Assuming it is standard practice, it infuses its communications with fake news, at the frequency observed in human communications.… Read More »Why AI lies (wrong answers only).

I ordered something from another country that I couldn’t source at home. This was on a reputable platform but the delivery turned into an unfortunate sequence of events. My order was received, processed, and arrived in… Read More »How not to let Automated Systems deliver customer service.

More hallucinations about AI in 2033. (part 3)

I’ve been imagining what functions AI may play in 2033 based on observing the impacts of the internet and mobile phones. Previous hallucinations here. In the category, ‘didn’t know I needed it but sure is useful.’ Difficult to predict, because … didn’t know I needed it. Nevertheless, a few wild conjectures:  Augmented human vision. See like a dog, helicopter, or… Read More »More hallucinations about AI in 2033. (part 3)

Hallucinating the AI of 2033. (part 2)

Previously, I looked at the disruptive forces of the Internet and mobile phones to see how they changed life in a decade. The goal was to help me hallucinate1 how AI will impact our lives ten years from now.  It turned out that the ways that the Internet and mobile phones changed life were only so helpful to predict how life… Read More »Hallucinating the AI of 2033.
