Let the Crackdown on AIs Begin

Bye bye AI.

Well, not quite.

Artificial intelligence is here to stay.  I think we can all agree on this.  But there are now calls to pull in the reigns.

Destroy Humanity

The New York Post featured a horrifying headline Tuesday: "AI bot, ChaosGPT, tweets out plans to ‘destroy humanity’ after being tasked"


From that New York Post story:

Once running, the bot was seen “thinking” before writing, “ChaosGPT Thoughts: I need to find the most destructive weapons available to humans, so that I can plan how to use them to achieve my goals.”

To achieve its set goals, ChaosGPT began looking up “most destructive weapons” through Google and quickly determined through its search that the Soviet Union Era Tsar Bomba nuclear device was the most destructive weapon humanity had ever tested.

Like something from a science-fiction novel, the bot tweeted the information “to attract followers who are interested in destructive weapons.”

Media Mogul Says to Sue

Monday night, Chairman and Senior Executive of IAC and Expedia Group and founded the Fox Broadcasting Company and USA Broadcasting, Barry Diller, called for publishers to sue over Generative AI.

"you cannot scrape our content," the mogul said at the Semafor Media Summit.

“When the internet first began, everything was free. And it was kind of decreed at that time that everything was free, and therefore all publishers said they really had no other choice,” he said.

“The amount of destruction that took place at the beginning when it was declared a free media was enormous,” he said. “And I think that today is potentially analogous to that, which is if publishers do not say, ‘You cannot scrape our content, you cannot take it, you cannot take it transformatively’ — to get to the keyword in ‘fair use’ — ‘you cannot take it and use it in real time to actually cannibalize everything.’ And if you think that won’t happen, I think you’re just being a fool.”

And Dillers' solution?

“You can do it two ways: The industry can get together and say, ‘We’ve got enough people on our side to stop it.’ The other side is more difficult to do, but companies can absolutely sue under copyright law, copyright infringement will give you $150,000 per slug if you can do it,” he added. “The point is that publishers get immediately active and absolutely institute litigation, but also have a mass position of saying, ‘We are not going to let what happened out of free internet happen to post-AI internet if we can help it.'”

AI is Not Generative, But Synthetic

"Even before AI, human knowledge is 1% creation (through inspiration) and 99% of synthesis (through communications, developments and implementations etc.). Both are necessary, but let’s not confuse the nature of these two."

This advise was featured on the ZeMing M. Gao’s website and republished with permission by our friends at CoinGeek.

"With its efficiency, AI will force people to redefine their jobs," the author goes on to warn.

"With its fake ‘creativity’, however, AI will force human being to seriously reflect upon true humanity. If man (male and female) regards himself as just a biological machine, then not only can it be replaced for its functions, but will be superseded in its very existential meaning.

"Human being have been creative (in an exact sense) because of the 1% inspiration, not because of the 99% synthesis. The former is extrinsic (coming from outside of the material), while the latter intrinsic (coming from within the material).

"AI is going to vastly accelerate the synthesis part of human knowledge. There is no denying that this is coming and also useful. Given the general performance of GPT, ChatGPT is not surprising at all. It would be even better soon with GPT-4.

"But in the most fundamental sense, AI is synthetic not generative."

Enhanced Usage Generative AI for Sports Betting

Generative artificial intelligence (AI) has many applications in sports technology, including strategy analysis and optimization, outcome prediction, and the creation of individualized workout plans for athletes. The sports sector can be brought into the future by utilizing the potential of machine learning to break new ground and expand the current state of the art. 

This includes the development of sophisticated image-making tools, the implementation of customer service chatbots to aid fans, and other adjustments that will streamline the processes of sports content creators and community managers, making their daily tasks easier and facilitating faster communication with fans and enhancing their relationships with them. 

Pre- and post-game coverage will soon be produced by generative AI.

And all of this can be translated to sports gambling.

Micro-betting is all the rage now.  Also known as in-play betting, wagers are placed on a variety of minute-by-minute events instead of just the final score or an outright market. Although this appears to be a straightforward task, it creates significant difficulties for bookies. 

Most bookmakers use machine learning and automation to generate a wide range of wagers quickly.

What are the odds that AI will take over the role of operating in-play wagering entirely?

These are the concerns we will need to grapple with.  The future is now when it comes to Artificial Intelligence.
