The unstoppable march of synthetic intelligence carries on. In mere weeks, AI has oozed into almost all the pieces we work together with on the web, from conversations, to journalism, to how we glance stuff up on-line. It’s even received Google scrambling to reclaim its spot on the search throne after Microsoft applied its personal AI instruments to miraculously make Bing really feel related once more.
This week, we discuss with WIRED senior author Will Knight about how generative AI is altering how we seek for data and create content material on-line, and whether or not we must always truly be freaking out about our new robotic overlords.
Read extra from Will in regards to the very weird and often horrifying world of generative AI. Follow all of WIRED’s ChatGPT and AI coverage.
