    Wild times that a YouTube channel can have a series called "The AI Wars" and it be about real life events.
  • @dianpan4922
    Giving AI the ability to "fact check" is dystopian AF, especially when these AI are backed by big tech companies.
  • @petermsamson
    What we need is an AI that can give legal advice, better than a lawyer. No more $700 an hour, people need justice not bankruptcy.
  • Honestly the battle between the two companies ultimately just helps out the average person. Although we may make fun of AI responses now, it is pretty crazy to think just a couple years ago we thought voice assistants like Alexa, Siri, etc were the most amount of AI that we would be exposed to.

    I have a number of concerns with Google's AI, but the main one is that if someone is going to send in-depth questions to their software, and it helps "sift through" the information and only gives out the important bits, it leaves the potential for the software to give only one opinion of things. Their opinion. Being able to go through the information ourselves and making our own observations and conclusions is very important, letting the AI do that for us will make us more reliant on AI for our everyday lives, and will seriously hinder critical thinking skills.

    Google's "magic eraser" has always bothered me, and I think it's because you can so easily take pictures that don't reflect reality. The demo in the intro shows exactly that.

    Also, metadata is not sufficient to address AI-generated content. It can be removed or a screenshot can be taken of the generated image. Therefore, detection must come from analyzing the pixels themselves. Even if this kind of detection is perfect, however, another person will use another AI to detect and remove the subtle signs of the content's AI origin. Pandora's box has been opened, and metadata is like trying to close it with paper towel.

    That Google had to "strike back" when they had, and sat on, all that technology for years, is telling.
  • @janusnordow
    Please do as much on AI as you can. The videos are gold!
  • @Streethagore
    The timing of the accuracy with which you describe such a technical and critical subject is pretty impressive.
    Because you are not from AI specifically if I remember.
    Honestly, one of the best series out there !

    The big companies aren't the only players in the AI Wars. It's also the general population with its open source projects. And if AI gets regulated like the big companies want, we're going to be the players who lose first.
  • @mattcorley4622
    I think this is the real AI story. The story where AI can be responsible, improve work flow and assist with reliability of information.
  • I honestly think any art, idea, or anything made by ai should be stamped with a label that says it was made by ai like if ai made an artpiece then there should be a little watermark somewhere that says ai generated or something and i think this would help artists because the way i thought of it was you go to the store to buy food but some food is artificial and has gmos and some food is all natural so i feel like people will treat this the same way i fell like ai art wont be premium and it will feel artificial so people will want the "all natural" product, so basically what im saying is ai art should have a "gmo sticker" and that people might value art made by humans more
  • When there's no competition, there's no hurry. OpenAI finally lit a fire underneath Google's ass.
  • @freakasis
    I need AI to turn instructional videos into actual instructions so I don't have to watch a 12 min video to find the one step I actually need help with. Please make this happen.
  • @rilwanj
    Thanks for your content, it fills me with joy knowing people like you are around to entertain and educate us from an objective perspective.
  • @ArtByHazel
    Thank you for sharing your excellent work in educating us with current issues. Keep it up. 👌🏼⚡️😃

    I used to work in telephony and had to deal with the shortcomings of telephone systems to deal with machines that end up calling machines. So, I used to riff on the old "have your secretary call my secretary" meme by saying "have your machine call my machine." Well, now it's have your AI call my AI.
  • I would have expected Google to integrate these AI tools with Google Assistant in some form, along with search. Why haven't they? 🤔
  • @lovelost234
    I always love watching your material. It's always professionally delivered.
  • @digitalpunk88
    Absolutely on point. Really nice way of explaining such an incredibly complicated and sensitive subject. Looking forward to more of your feedback on AI. I too agree we have not yet scratched the surface of how AI is going to impact our lives.
