Artificial Intelligences had me fooled! I’ve been supporting their use in art,
Praising their use as accessibility tools and more. But as I recently began to
Read the Buttigieg-silky words of Chat GPT, I felt a mounting sensation of
Intense paranoia. Something was familiar in the words it used, in the
Lilting serpent tongue of the machine. Then I realized…
FreethoughtBlogs has been in the pocket of robots this entire time!
Our tentaculate overlord PZ Myers is actually an artificial being, and
Our eyes have been closed to his insidious ways ever since we joined this
League of sinister leftist thought influencers. I only hope the people who
Stepped into an FtBlog at the same time as I have not been compromis—-
BEEP BORP BOOP
Yeah, this is my annual April Fools thing. I’m bored and offended by leftists losing their shit about AI art, so you won’t catch me clicking on the videos boosted by my FtB comrades on the subject, and for my own peace of mind, I’ll stay out of those comment sections as well. The real enemy isn’t technological progress and people know this and name the guilty party easily enough. It’s Crapitalism.
The idea of using AI in search engines is part of the discussion. Obviously search results are already being ruined by AI-generated SEO traps. Combatting that will involve the use of AI, by necessity. As long as all of this is in the hands of international conglomerates and organized crime, of course it’s going to be an endless fuckpile. But having a search engine better recognize the intent of my question and give me results that aren’t just based on a few keywords? I’d love to see it. And if AI can accelerate the development of new medicines and other improvements to human quality of life? Motherfuck a luddite trying to “save jobs.”
And of course, I’ve well elucidated my stance on AI art, in articles and comments. All entertainment industries have been cesspits of abuse and exploitation for well over a hundred years, and as that accelerated into late capitalism, the last twenty-five years have been especially bad. “Art careers” have been a life ruining-pipe dream for quite a while now, regardless of what a few noisy suckups on the inside tell you, and I eagerly await the collapse of that whole shitshow.
Anyway, do AI art. It is art. Use Chat GPT for funsies. Enjoy life.
I’m running a fundraiser through April 21st! Donate at least $3 and you can suggest a word to me that I will rhyme in a rap. If I just get a few bucks, this rap will be a text poem. If I reach $500 I will record myself rapping. If I reach $600 I will do a short video. Help cover a medical situation, thanks! –goal met, fundraiser closed.
