Can you blame people (or politicians) for choices they make when they have no clue? Of course you can. That’s how they – and all of us – learn. And having no clue is no excuse for bad business decisions. Nevertheless, most managers and leaders get away with it. Again and again. No wonder we’re in trouble…
Apparently, chatbots suddenly hit a wall. Went from ‘wunderkinder’ to laughingstock in a few short weeks. Bard and ChatGPT (or the enhanced Bing which suddenly became ‘de-enhanced’) got undressed. No intelligence was found, just a lot of data – and a language model, a very big one. Which explains the output – and (pardon my French) the BS.
You may remember one of the Beatles’ first hits, ‘Can’t buy me love’. There are many reasons why the song lives on. One of them that there is – even these days – a lot if stuff you cannot buy. Like my mother in law observed about her situation at a care facility recently: I need hearts more than hands – and they cannot be bought.
I tried, but I couldn’t quit completely. Significant reduction but still addicted – to the good feeling. That’s what the backup/archive system in the garage delivers. Peace of mind, a feeling of safety. Is it real?
Some people thrive in chaos. They all have something in common: Instincts. But everyone has instincts, right? So why don’t the rest of us thrive in chaos?
Think about it: Solar panels on every roof must be good, right? Our own almost personal power plants. We’re saving the planet, changing our own lives and saving money – at least in the long run. It sounds too good to be true. And it is.
Humans don’t really like robots and certainly not robots that look like us – unless they’re in a movie or TV show. In short – we don’t like competition. That’s why we don’t want autonomous cars.
The pandemic changed our perception of time and what’s possible in a short time frame. Paving way for a very fast (and critical) energy revolution.
I’m not joking. Most people don’t care about privacy. If they did, social media and a lot of other things in the digital world would be different. Actually, if people were as concerned about privacy as the pundits and many lawmakers want us to be, the digital economy would be in shambles.
Most people I know consider themselves ‘adaptable’ – able and willing to adapt to changing conditions, new challenges etc. fast. Yet I know very few who really are. What’s the problem?
