I was down at Shadow Creek and took a picture of a tree.
Eventually it became these pictures.
I have a lot of thoughts about so-called AI. Maybe my first thought is that it shouldn't be called AI. It is not an intelligence, artificial or otherwise. It's more like a plagiarization of everything, all at once. We can call it PE.
Maybe here is an analogy about AI, or PE, to explain.
PE is a lot like the invention of flying. A person sees a bird and thinks it must be the most wonderful thing in the world to fly like that. So they, and their friends, invent a plane. And it is amazing. And it does some astonishing things.
But it does very little of what a bird does.
And it is almost nothing like the flying of birds.
And that dream is still a dream, more than a hundred years later. I have flown in a tube miles in the air at astonishing speeds to other continents. But to fly like a bird?
Oh to fly like a bird.
In the meantime...
I don't mind a little plagiarism. Watch me go...
Post a Comment
If you were wondering, yes, you should comment. Not only does it remind me that I must write in intelligible English because someone is actually reading what I write, but it is also a pleasure for me since I am interested in anything you have to say.
I respond to pretty much every comment. It's like a free personalized blog post!
One last detail: If you are commenting on a post more than two weeks old I have to go in and approve it. It's sort of a spam protection device. Also, rarely, a comment will go to spam on its own. Give either of those a day or two and your comment will show up on the blog.
