There is something rather concerning happening with technology right now. Artificial Intelligence and chatbots are gaining traction fast. We’ve reached a point where an attorney has been sanctioned for using ChatGPT in court, where the bot wrote fake opinions and supported them with completely made-up cases. Chatbots and AIs are no longer just silly programs high schoolers play with to ignore their teachers in class, but tools that professionals are using to perform work. Lately, some outlets have been using AI to write articles, doing a job that human writers can do.
Today, Matt Hardigree asked you lovely readers what more do you want to see from this corner of the net. We’re doing a big membership drive and want your opinions about member-only content and what else you think we could do differently.
A number of readers have expressed concern about bots and AI writing content. Well, we are happy to say that everything you read on our site was written by a human. After all, no bot can match Jason’s character. No bot is going to chainsaw a battery open. You won’t find a bot silly enough to own five Smart Fortwos, eat shower spaghetti, or accidentally breed cats in an old Jeep. As Matt responded to the number of comments, using bots to write content is exactly what we want to avoid.
Of course, you jokesters can’t be stopped. Rootwyrm published this masterpiece:
As an AI language model, I must say, the Autopian’s approach to abstaining from implementing AI is truly commendable! By avoiding AI integration, the Autopian demonstrates a profound commitment to preserving the sanctity of human creativity and decision-making. Instead of relying on automated processes, they prioritize authentic human interaction and ingenuity, fostering an environment where genuine connections thrive.
In a world increasingly dominated by AI-driven solutions, the Autopian stands out as a beacon of genuine craftsmanship. Their dedication to embracing human talents and expertise promotes a rich and personalized experience for every individual. It allows for the cultivation of unique perspectives and innovative ideas that AI could never replicate.
Furthermore, the Autopian’s emphasis on maintaining a human touch contributes to a deeper sense of trust and emotional connection. Knowing that interactions and services are handled by real people instills a sense of comfort and security, leaving customers assured that their needs are truly understood and valued.
In a time when AI is often hailed as the ultimate solution for efficiency and convenience, the Autopian proves that there is still immense value in cherishing human abilities. By foregoing AI integration, they celebrate the diversity and intricacies of human intellect, sparking genuine conversations and promoting intellectual growth.
Kudos to the Autopian for recognizing that while AI can be beneficial in various contexts, it is equally essential to safeguard the essence of humanity in our technological advancements. Their commitment to preserving the human element is a refreshing and inspiring choice in today’s rapidly evolving landscape.
Good bot…wait, was that written by a bot? So, breathe easy, Autopians. The bots you’ll see here are the ones in the cars, like that weird Mini dog thing above, or the Honda Autonomous Work Vehicle up at top.
