    I bought the whole volume, so will be looking forward to receiving it in hte mamil – and yes, I’m sure I’ll be able to figure it out. So when I was ordering it, they kept asking for my “mÈl”, and insisted I wasn’t doing it right until I gave them my email address. Is that kind of a new word for “email”? MÈl. Sort of cool.

    Ah, yes, I’ve found courriel in the dictionary – and I like pourriel. So mÈl is fairly common then?

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 […]
