I just saw the MKBHD video about the AI chat thing. I have no doubt i might be using it to help me brainstorm for essays in upcoming college classes.
I had no idea it could code.
Though i doubt a company would want to leverage their whole billing system or front-end application on an AI bot.
Right now it seems a bit alien, but if people are using it as a search engine I don't see how it's any different than googling and finding a forum to read.
And...the essay writer websites have existed on the internet for years lol. Usually professors will know if bits and pieces have been copied.
As far as AI art, i'm not a huge fan of it. You can make a portrait of yourself and it's cool for 2 minutes. Then what are you going to do with it? You didn't draw it yourself. It feels really gimmicky. I do agree with MKBHD in that it's a huge data collection issue if you upload your face or a location to these ai bots. Artists aren't getting credited and sometimes you can even see their signatures in the AI creations :/
