Linked – Microsoft Says Copilot Users Would Love It More If They Wrote Better Prompts

AI might eventually change the world. However, the technology that exists can be disappointing. Microsoft and other AI champions need to accept that and work to improve it. Telling people they aren’t prompting correctly isn’t how to get buy-in. It’s elitest for no reason.

The study authors pointed out that they only researched text-based platforms. Video platforms may be worse in terms of toxicity. However, that hasn’t been my experience; they seem pretty similar to me, but that’s just anecdotal. They also pointed out that current-day social networks are much larger. Many more people see the toxicity on Facebook than people who saw a Usenet post in the 90s. That also means there is more total toxicity. It might only be 7-10% of the content, but the content generated by 500 million users dwarfs the content generated by 10,000 users. So there’s more of it; we are more aware of it, but the percentage hasn’t changed much.

Tinder Using Video Selfies to Verify User Identities Because of AI Selfies

Of course, the problem is that short videos are going to be easy enough to create using AI as well, so what will be the next step dating apps have to take to verify the identity of their users and make sure customers aren’t spending all their time on the app talking to fake AI-generated profiles? Or is this the end of that entire business model?

Don’t think dating apps are the only thing at risk with AI. Any online service based on contributions by authors, artists, musicians, etc., is at risk of being overrun by AI junk. In some cases, it’s probably already happening.
