Beyond just internet search, Microsoft is also gearing up to push AI features into its line of Microsoft Office products, including Word, PowerPoint, and Outlook.

On Tuesday, Microsoft announced an upgraded version of its Bing search engine and Edge browser that integrates the ChatGPT chatbot. Now the company wants to integrate AI into even more of its products.

According to The Verge, Microsoft plans on announcing the feature sometime in March.

The company will detail its plans for integrating OpenAI's language AI technology and its Prometheus Model into its products.

The feature will be similar to ChatGPT, which has taken the world by storm since its launch in November. It's essentially an advanced chatbot that can answer questions posed to it.

Google is also preparing to release its own conversational AI service, currently known as the "Bard" project. The company is now using "trusted testers" to shake down Bard before making it more widely available to the public within weeks.

    Well, the next few years are not going to be pleasant with the millions of documents with errors coming out of nowhere. Those will be easy to spot. It’s the subtle ones that are going to be dangerous.

    Yeah, this will end well. Just an hour ago I came across this article. 

    https://futurism.com/neoscope/magazine-mens-journal-errors-ai-health-article

    MAGAZINE PUBLISHES SERIOUS ERRORS IN FIRST AI-GENERATED HEALTH ARTICLE

    THE OWNERS OF SPORTS ILLUSTRATED AND MEN’S JOURNAL PROMISED TO BE VIRTUOUS WITH AI. THEN THEY BUNGLED THEIR VERY FIRST AI STORY — AND ISSUED HUGE CORRECTIONS WHEN WE CAUGHT THEM.

    Fair use laws were created in the context of human capability. These programs go well beyond human capability and obviously new laws are needed. For example: where are the text/images that the program is using coming from? Does the programmer of the AI own the rights/permissions to them? Are they public domain? IMO, any AI program that is producing text/images should be limited to a database that is either owned, leased through permissions that include AI use as part of the agreement or public domain. If not, it should be illegal.

    Droves of now useless white collar workers head to the unemployment line. Better learn a trade skill.

    The likely consequences remind me this F Zappa quote :

    “Definition of rock journalism: People who can't write, doing interviews with people who can't think, in order to prepare articles for people who can't read.”

    You know, if I was on a school board, I would demand that all homework in the 2023-2024 school year and beyond be in the form of written paper. 

    They really should get in front of this now.

    Apocalypse

    First they replaced the cleaners
    And I did not object
    Because nobody likes mopping and vacuuming

    Then they replaced the factory workers
    And I did not object
    Because those were boring jobs I would never want

    Then they replaced the writers, artists, and musicians
    And I did not object
    Because I was not talented, I just wanted the results

    Then they replaced the drivers
    And I did not object
    Because I assumed they would be safer and less expensive

    Then they replaced the soldiers
    And I did not object
    Because it’s better to not put people in danger, and anyway war is always amoral 

    Then they replaced the engineers, planners, and designers
    And I did not object
    Because I just wanted their products, for cheap

    Then they replaced the reporters, investigators, the watchdogs
    And I did not object
    Because it was all bad news anyway and I had stopped paying attention

    Then they replaced me
    And there was no one left to object
    Because everyone around was poor, jobless, and homeless, they had no voice

    I came across a man in the gutter
    He said he once was once rich, he ran the company
    But they replaced him too, to save costs

    As I looked out over the ugly, grey, joyless, landscape
    Governed by unfeeling, unaesthetic, uncaring, efficiency
    I understood now that The Robot Apocalypse was self inflicted

    ChatGPT sounds more like a AI generated art. Instead of art form, it's in literature form.

    So far, I’ve seen so helpful as a chat bot or like a more direct search engine for questions. 

    The graphic design side of things has been a mashup of other people’s work, but with some weird creepy spin on it. The website generation is a mixed bag as well. 

    Not really feeling it as a mainstream, legal, focused tool. More of a hobby thing.

    Bravo.  Did you write this poem as an original work on this forum?

    Wow. I’m familiar with the source upon which this is based (the confessional of Niemöller), but I’ve never seen this variation. Is this an original by you? And is it published? It’s excellent either way.

    Apple has one of these AI events this month internally as well. Most likely for their new search engine. Blah!!
