I watched this panel last night and thought it was refreshingly well done.
Perhaps I’m biased and unbalanced, but it also gives me the impression that there’s a certain imbalance in the level of knowledge of the “AS-IS” and what can be accomplished today.
In any case, I tend to agree more with the users’ assessments and see this as a central issue. If you don’t fully understand the market and believe that your opinion is the only correct one, then the future may slip away from you faster and faster. In the end, a bold general statement that there’s no way around AI doesn’t help much, in my humble opinion, if what was said earlier seems to contradict this.
For those who watched the entire video and not just the title, what are your impressions?
I definitely turned into a bad joke, I’m not convinced it was originally meant to be a joke. It definitely was an “ice breaker”
Very, very true and funny. I thought the whole time: if I would replace AI by documentation, Android, API2, web 2 it will even get funnier - Yousaf and Bob had very fair points, but my perception was "okay, once again we are back to the “yes, but we and I know best”.
Most people assume ChatGPT “knows” what it’s talking about. It doesn’t. It just looks up the most likely words to follow any query. So, it makes sense that everyone’s favorite Wookie would get mentioned in a Star Wars story. But, when you’re dealing with facts, it’s another matter. They only “know” what’s in their LLMs.
And even then, it makes something up that sounds believable. In Belgium we did a test with a question about our King Boudewijn and although it was right about him being dead, it made up a whole story about he died in a plane crash, which he didn’t. A.I. for the moment is just a huge statistical number cruncher.
