    Yea, this bubble is mostly LLM, but also deepfakes and other generative image algorithms. They are all ML. LLM has some fame because people can’t seem to realise that it’s crap. They definitely passed the Turing test, while still being pretty much useless.

    There are many other useless ML algorithms. Just because you don’t like something doesn’t mean it doesn’t belong. ML has some good stuff and some bad stuff. The statement “ML works” doesn’t mean anything. It’s like saying “math works”.

    There have been many AI bubbles in the past as well, as well as slumps. Look up the term AI winter. Most AI algorithms turn out not really working except for a few niche applications. You are probably referring to these few as “ML works”. Most AI projects fail, but some prevail. This goes for all tech though. So… tech works.

    What Microsoft is doing is they are trying to cast a wide net to see if they hit one of the few actual good applications for LLMs. Most of them will fail but there might be one or two really successful products. Good for them to have that kind of capital to just haphazardly try new features everywhere.

    Companies hve always simplified smart things and called it AI. AI is hotter than ever now, not only LLM.

    And again ML is a subset of AI, LLM is a subset of ML. With these definitions, everything is AI. Look up the definition of AI. It’s just a collection of techniques to do “smarter” things with AI. It includes all of the above, e.g. “If this then that” but also more advanced mathematics, like statistical methods and ML. LLM is one of those statistical models.

    You seem to be arguing against another stawman. OP didn’t say they only dislike LLM the sub is even “Fuck AI”. And this thread is talking about AI in general.

    Machine Learning is a subset of AI and has always been. Also, LLM is a subset of Machine Learning. You are trying to split hairs, or at least do a “That’s not a real Scotsman” out of the above post.






  • Bank holidays would be really awkward. You start wort at 23 and the next day is off so you would just have to work that one hour.

    Office workers could probably move hours around. It would get complicated for shift workers though. Paying overtime for work on holidays?

    All I see is you being toxic. You’re not leading people anywhere. People will want to stay away from your way of thinking because of all the hatred in your tone. Dial it down a bit if you want to have any impact.
