The advances in AI over the past 12 months are mind-boggling. I attended a dinner this previous week with USV portfolio founders and one who works in training instructed us that ChatGPT has successfully ended the essay as a approach for academics to evaluate pupil progress. It will likely be simpler for a pupil to immediate ChatGPT to write down the essay than to write down it themselves.
It’s not simply language fashions which can be making enormous advances. AIs can produce unimaginable audio and video as properly. I’m sure that an AI can produce a podcast or video of me saying one thing I didn’t say and wouldn’t say. I haven’t seen it but, however it’s inevitable.
So what will we do about this world we live in the place content material will be created by machines and ascribed to us?
I believe we might want to signal every little thing to suggest its validity. After I say signal, I’m pondering cryptographically signed, such as you signal a transaction in your web3 pockets.
I put up my blogs at AVC.com and in addition at AVC.Mirror.xyz which is a web3 running a blog platform that enables me to signal my posts and retailer them on-chain. That is an attestation on the finish of final week’s weblog put up.
You may see that “creator deal with” and click on on it to see that it is among the varied web3 addresses I personal/management. That signifies that it was me who posted the weblog. It’s also saved on-chain on the Arweave blockchain in order that the content material exists independently of the running a blog platform. That can also be vital to me.
I believe AI and Web3 are two sides of the identical coin. As machines more and more do the work that people used to do, we’ll want instruments to handle our id and our humanity. Web3 is producing these instruments and a few of us are already utilizing them to write down, tweet/solid, make and gather artwork, and do a bunch of different issues that machines may do. Web3 would be the human place to do this stuff when machines begin corrupting the standard locations we do/did this stuff.
