Founders of OpenAI: "It’s Altman’s belief — along with the belief of Ilya Sutskever, OpenAI’s chief scientist and a co-founder — that AI with intelligence exceeding that of humans could arrive within the decade, and that this AI won’t necessarily be benevolent — necessitating research into ways to limit and restrict it." #Ai #LLMs #AIpocalpyse https://techcrunch.com/2023/10/26/openai-forms-team-to-study-catastrophic-risks-including-nuclear-threats/
Things in ascending order of bonkers:
- People move horses by plane
- People move enough horses often enough that there are dedicated horse transport flights.
- There are enough dedicated horse transport flights that there are purpose built horse transport cargo planes with a small amount of passenger space for vets and horse people.
- Theres a button that puts these planes into horse mode.
This is a subtle math education question.
Consider this sequence of algebra steps:
This is substitution. And feels natural to me. Replace a with d. But, I have many students who write:
Still correct but I don’t understand why they swapped the order. What are they thinking? If it was just one or two students I’d call it “the noise of young minds” but it’s six of them. Why do they write it like this? #mathematic
The world's most popular painter — at least, when it comes to TikTok followers — is Devon Rodriguez. He recently held his first solo show, Underground. Artnet's critic, Ben Davis, wrote what he thought was a fair review, but Rodriguez disagreed, leading to a pile-on from his fans.

Exclusive Washington Post report reveals that Ukrainian spies “drawn from directorates that were formed, trained, and equipped in close partnership with the CIA” are responsible for Daria Dugina’s assassination and other “extreme measures” that predate February 2022.
The extent of the CIA’s involvement with Ukraine’s security services appears to be quite “significant” indeed. It’s even “built new headquarters for departments in Ukraine’s military intelligence agency.” LOL: “GUR was our little baby. We gave them all new equipment and training,” said a former U.S. intelligence official who worked in Ukraine.
In some cases, the CIA has had advance knowledge of Ukrainian “plans for strikes,” including the bombing of the Kerch Bridge. “U.S. officials registered concerns.” But they did it again, months later, so the CIA clearly wasn’t that concerned.
This is pure cultural bias but it is really throwing me that the fair maiden of Das Nibelungenlied is named Kriemhild. That's too many consonants for a fair maid. The moment Siegfried meets a French fair maid named Oisietteaubeaulieu he's gonna lose his mind.
In about three years companies will realize they are being talked about in the fediverse and ooo gee maybe we should pay attention to that! A lot of professionals here with disposable income. Not a one looking at ads.
That will be a sad day in many ways. But, the attempts to adapt should be an endless source of humor.
