A Bruce Sterling speech about AI from six months ago

Thursday 18th May, 2023 - Bruce Sterling

*This feels like six YEARS ago.

*The aesthetic problems haven’t gone away. It impresses me that there’s so much industrial effort in making AI art that “looks real,” as opposed to AI art that looks like AI art. But likely I shouldn’t be surprised at that; it’s closely related to the mighty, ongoing effort to make machines “think like people,” instead of getting them to compute effectively.


*It’s interesting that some kind of AI program did the voice to text translation of this and made so many small weird errors. It rather spices up the presentation.
