Flickr keeps exploring itself – see, for instance, Andrew Losowsky’s series of photos of doorbells in Florence, each of which is being posted with a short fiction.

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 […]
