@hacker-news-newest@feeds.twtxt.net Hmmmm

Conclusion: Is there anybody out there?

I’m not one for conspiracy theories, but it’s hard not to think that there is some truth to The Dead Internet Theory, i.e. the belief that the Internet is now empty and devoid of real people, and that everything is just bots talking to bots to generate content and clicks in order to get a share of the all-important and ever-growing advertising revenue5.

In-reply-to » European Parliament votes for Free Software in AI resolution – This position must now be included in the AI regulation

@marado GPT-3 summarizes this as:

The European Parliament has passed a resolution on Artificial Intelligence with a majority of 495 votes in favor, 34 against, and 102 abstentions. The resolution includes many references to the advantages of Free Software and the FSFE is urging the Parliament to transfer its own position into the AI regulation.

Is this accurate? Is there a bit more to this? 🤔

In-reply-to » Facing High Demand, Texas Asks 26 Million to Use Less Electricity This Weekend Friday a heat wave hit Texas — prompting the non-profit that manages power for Texas's 26 million customers to...ask them to use less of it.

@slashdot@feeds.twtxt.net isn’t that like asking those same 26 million people to breathe out less carbon dioxide? 🤔😆 we do a fairly similar thing here in Brisbane Australia where when I damage dry out we go on water restrictions and your sepically not allowed to do things like water your garden or what you are on. I suppose Texas could and act a similar requirement and restriction and restrict the use of air conditioners? 🤔

In-reply-to » Elon Musk Warns Twitter Users, 'You Are Being Manipulated by the Algorithm' Twitter's potential new owner just made this announcement to his 93.1 million followers. "Very important to fix your Twitter feed," the annoncement began:

@eaplmx Yeah this is true I guess. Twitter™ could show cards in your Timeline that might be related to the content being discussed in that “thread”. They could easily do that without collecting behaviour, personal information (besides reading public Tweets, which are public anyway). Then they could get rid of the shitty society mutating algorithm 😂

GPT-3 Resources - HedgeDoc

Trying to find interesting things related to GPT-3, tools, apps, etc. I haven’t found much though. There’s a lot of “hype” on Twitter™ but “no show”. Anyone come across anything interesting I should add to this list? I mean c’mon, if you’re gonna show off something, at least link to a working version, show the code, something! 🤦‍♂️

Until Twitter™ gets rid of “targettered advertising”, you will always be manipulated by the “algorithm”. Take DuckDuckGo’s business model. They collect little to nothing about you, don’t target ads at you, they just generate revenue from serving ads based on keyword searches.
