AI continues to enthrall everyone. Here’s DHH on AI creativity vs humans:
Why shouldn’t the same be true of AI generated novels, plays, or movies? What realm of creative production does not benefit from the out-of-the-norm inferences that computers have already proven they can make within the bounds of chess and go to great effect? Is what we call human creativity all that different from a large language model anyway? A distillation of observations, inputs, mimetic tendencies, and a wetware random generator?
Fair questions. I just wish he wouldn’t keep calling us “mere humans”.
In the meantime, JFC stop posting every single conversation you have with ChatGPT. It’s already boring.
I’m this close to replacing Hugo with WordPress here. I promised myself I’d never do it again but I don’t listen. Prepare for interruptions.
