What would you give up to save this #planet?
It's always so easy to demand that the rich should give up their yachts and private jets because you're not affected by it yourself. Those who don't have a car and live in the city demand the abolition of the car without thinking about the people in the countryside. Those who don't use AI and streaming are calling for data centers to be shut down to save power.
(Who now writes in the comments I only use text messages for chatting so I don't care about the bandwidth. I would like to congratulate him because he still has not understood what it's all about.)
Why isn't #Twitter (X) dead yet? #ElonMusk has done everything he can to bury the #platform, hasn't he?
In my opinion, it's the journalists who are treated like dirt (💩) by #Musk but just can't let go of the platform.
That's partly because they prefer to make headlines with #clickbait and scandals and still link diligently on Twitter. In this way, they give the platform relevance in the media and make Musk's rants seem like important discourse. On the other hand, it is because the average journalist is apparently too incompetent to discover new platforms for himself.
I'm probably doing an injustice to the little journalist who is just trying to make ends meet somehow. But it's amazing that the big publishers are so inflexible or have made themselves so dependent on Twitter that they can't or won't switch.
The new sets of rules come after Amazon removed suspected AI-generated books that were falsely listed as being written by the #author #JaneFriedman. Earlier this month, books about #mushroom foraging listed on Amazon were reported as likely to have been AI-generated and therefore containing potentially dangerous advice. AI-generated travel books have also flooded the site.
The AI #attack on #humanity has begun. Reviews as well as books are coming under the #control of AI. Soon it will no longer be possible to buy books from humans, because they can no longer be found in the confusion.
Or we're all on the #Titanic, only most of us trapped below deck. On the lowest decks, they are already fighting for bare survival. On the upper decks, however, they're partying and discussing space tourism.
Maybe we should stop looking for the right #metaphor and finally save this planet.

Enter generative #AI tools such as large language models, which power some of the big breakthrough online AI tools such as #ChatGPT. “This year, because gen AI is just so mailable, they just fine-tuned a language module together that can clarify such disinformation…adding back a context and things like that. So we're no longer outnumbered,” she said. It also allows the citizen-run venture to remain as such, as opposed to run by the #government, which is important for its credibility.
That sounds very naive to me. I've learned so far from #Trump's "war on truth" that when someone has dived too deep into the right rabbit whole, no more fact checking or credibility helps. The opponent can always produce #fake and #propaganda via AI faster than you can refute. In the end, #conspiracy ideologues don't care about the #truth.
As usual, Tutemic has an enlighting and surprising take on the Unity game engine controversy - why we must force them to walk this back a 100%, or were all gonna pay dearly in the future.

Extreme #Heat Is Here to Stay
And I fear that that is distracting from the real #problem here, which is just the burning of #fossil #fuels. It's these planetary criminal companies that are destroying our #civilization.
The #referendum result obliges the state oil company to dismantle operations – 12 drilling platforms and 225 wells that produce up to 57,000 barrels a day – in block 43 of the Ishpingo-Tambococha-Tiputini (ITT) project, an area of the Amazon rainforest famed for its ecological diversity, and which is home to two tribes that live in voluntary isolation. With more than 5.4 million votes in favour of halting production and 3.7 million against, this is the most decisive democratic victory against the #fossil #fuel industry in Latin #America and, arguably, the #world.
One #question we have to ask ourselves more and more often in this high-tech #world is, is this real, AI-generated or just heavily photoshopped? And why is this stuff posted if it only triggers #depression among the #youth because of unattainable beauty ideals?
