OPS is dedicated to the time-honored tradition of stealing other peopleís material and we therefore recognize our debt to those from whom weíve stolen and acknowledge that these stories do not belong to us.

Do people flock to talks about ChatGPT because they are scared?

Whenever I give talks about ChatGPT and LLMs, whether to ninth graders, businesses or journalists, I meet people who are hungry for information, who really want to understand this new technology. I’ve interpreted this as interest and a need to understand – but yesterday, Eirik Solheim said that every time […]
