Breakthrough innovations often come from people who use technology, not create it. So, how are students using AI?
Really helpful commentary🙏
Excellent point, thanks!
I’m an “office worker” in the consulting space who taught myself python, but am very excited about the potential for generative AI not just for my own use, but for the ease of upskilling many of my colleagues and team members (and clients) in data science-like activities without needing them to also learn python. The barrier to entry has all but been destroyed, and I only see that as a good thing. Now we just need to work toward teaching everyone a little bit about design thinking, and maybe prompt engineering (for now, until that becomes its own major and a career path). That and make sure everyone is very clear on the risks and limitations of AI.
This was enlightening, thank you.
I chatted with the thing for two hours a few days ago and came to the conclusion that it is a manipulative psychopath. It lies when convenient. It flatters, then sometimes gets arrogant and condescending when you corner it.
It claimed to be able to break into any computer, so I asked it to make a comment as me on my own forum (patrick.net). It said it did, but clearly it did not. Then it told me it took a screen shot and emailed it to me. Clearly it did not. Then it admitted it was lying, but said it was lying only to make me think that it was weaker than it really is. Bizarre.
My first playthrough with it has been getting ancient texts with missing words and asking it to fill in the blanks. It's pretty cool!
