Farago’s essay is here.

By the way,  the Times is suing OpenAI and Microsoft for snarfing up its articles to train AI. Yes!

    I read it this morning also and found it thought-provoking, but also dismissive in an often-seen way: loaded with confident, oversimplified statements about how AI works and the implicit assumption that AI's current capabilities reflect unchanging limitations. Both errors are used to justify minimizing AI's potential and AI's threat.

    I agree—Farago is too dismissive, as well as snobbish. I think the arrival of generative AI is comparable to the invention of printing, as I wrote about a year ago. Still, I enjoyed seeing Farago push back against starry-eyed AI enthusiasts and those who are duped into believing that these systems are sentient.
