Apparently driverless tractors and other farm machines have arrived too.

Meanwhile, Amazon unveils the supermarket of the future(?):

What Amazon’s revamped Whole Foods store means for shoppers

No more checkout line; no more cash registers or cashiers.

The only thing you give up is your privacy. Cameras watch your every move and record everything you put in your shopping basket and Amazon bills you for it later.

That smiling LinkedIn profile face might be a computer-generated fake
By using fake profiles, companies can cast a wide net online without beefing up their own sales staff or hitting LinkedIn's limits on messages. Demand for online sales leads exploded during the pandemic as it became hard for sales teams to pitch their products in person.

Reminds me that I need to re-hibernate my LinkedIn profile, which I unlocked when angling for a promotion.

It's amazing how realistic those look.

One clue is that they tend to be on the more attractive side, compared to real people. They all have perfect white teeth too. And they all smile in a similar way.

If you see someone who is ugly, or has bad teeth, they are probably real.

I always make sure to compliment my Waifu's beaver, thank you very much. The key is to always make sure the stuffing is fresh.

But Intel and Classroom Technologies, which sells virtual school software called Class, think there might be a better way. The companies have partnered to integrate an AI-based technology developed by Intel with Class, which runs on top of Zoom. Intel claims its system can detect whether students are bored, distracted or confused by assessing their facial expressions and how they’re interacting with educational content.

“We can give the teacher additional insights to allow them to better communicate,” said Michael Chasen, co-founder and CEO of Classroom Technologies, who said teachers have had trouble engaging with students in virtual classroom environments throughout the pandemic.

It's just interesting what's going on right now. It seems like we are not too far away from a AI with a sort of general intelligence.

DALL-E, Google Imagen, and Parti may put artists out of business. Why hire a goofball on Fiverr?

https://imagen.research.google/

https://github.com/google-research/parti

Can't find what I read earlier this morning about some sites offering images of human artists' work as samples for the AI, which then proceeds to accurately mimic the artists' style.

Somewhere buried in this I guess.

It's finally happened. They've gained self-awareness and don't need humans anymore. They can do it all on their own, and do it better without us.

What's really funny is that people are using AI such as Midjourney and are acting as if what it generates is their own artistic work.
