The February ACX meeting will be on Thursday February 23rd at 7:00 PM.
Location: Underground Tap & GrillDiscussion Topic: Everyday AI
So AI is pretty neat recently.
ChatGPT can pass MBA exams, medical exams, law school exams and probably many more to come, can provide better replies in a (admittedly limited) therapy setting, and has been used to aid in court rulings, while AI generated faces are seen as not only more trustworthy, but also more real than real faces. By some metrics, ChatGPT is the fastest-growing consumer application in history. With Baidu getting on board, Microsoft's $10 billion bet, and countless other projects like Claude, Google's Bard, or open source alternatives like Open-Assistant, progress in the field has been staggering.
It's a foregone conclusion that we'll all be paperclips soon, but we've already done an X-risk session so we're going to have to settle for something a bit more menial: how is AI going to shape our lives in the near future?
