That was beautiful.

My employer launched an internal-use AI chat bot, to some fanfare.  In practice, it just repeats email sent from the IT department's ticket system, and fails miserably as a search engine.  ELIZA was smarter.

A co-worker, as an experiment, decided to use the chat-bot to accomplish one of the example tasks it was supposed to be able to help with:  Request a new mouse from IT.

There was confusion, and hilarity, and an point when he was told his mouse was ready for pickup at the head office on the other side of the country.  He finally got his mouse over a month later. :p

Personally I think the best use case for AI is replacing executives, sales, and the rest of Synergy Dave.  Not because it would do the job well, but because it would do it as well as the average human, that's how an LLM works, by taking averages, and it would cost a lot less.

That those folks are the ones pushing the hardest for it is funny.

Wonderful read, it's been a while since I've seen such confident chutzpah. I can only hope the greater techbro grift bubble pops forever after LLMs flop, as everyone collectively realizes they don't like having shit shoved into their mouths by assholes in bowties and sailor shoes :fnord:
