I enjoy the holidays.
They hold a special place in my heart. In fact, today is National Read Across America Day, an excellent idea for a holiday. St Patrick’s Day is a holiday in Ireland.
My humble opinion is that Free to Technologize Day should be a national holiday. On the Internet, this holiday would celebrate the desire to connect all the people of the world. I think we need a holiday to make AI part of our normal day-to-day lives now that I’m seeing a lot of headlines about it.
We could celebrate the holiday right on social media, with “badges” to indicate we support Free to Technologize. I think it could be a compelling movement.
AI reminds people of films like The Terminator, Total Recall, Alien, and others in that movie genre. I think because those are scary films, we believe that AI will ultimately prove frightening and even dangerous.
I have read that AI can quickly assume characteristics that are not unlike the characteristics of a manic-depressive adolescent. I have not read much about whether there is an off-command to quickly reduce an AI chat to nothing. I would have thought that such a concern would be first and foremost in people’s eyes.
People who have examined how AI chat makes them feel have admitted that it is a disturbing experience.
One aspect of AI that has impacted me personally is that I no longer have any idea what the future will appear like, except that there may be unforetold opportunities I have never thought of. I feel that interacting with Mother Nature is very important for everyone, no matter who. There would be health consequences with never a moment setting foot in nature.
Mark Zuckerberg, the CEO of Meta, continues to step up to bat every time he envisions a way that Meta could spearhead man’s interest in technology so that he retains his hold on wealth and power. Elon Musk, the CEO of Tesla, has a different strategy that he is pronouncing, what with the tremendous power Musk wields thanks to the fortune he built. Musk, of the billionaire social class, is the most humanitarian of the lot, I believe.
