AI trust issues (Axios)

Intro LO: Trust issues are probably the most fundamental issues between humans, and also in primates like chimpanzees. Hence, trust issues in artificial intelligence (AI) make perfect sense. Moreover, the word intelligence in AI is utterly misleading. Hence, articles about Artificial Idiocy. Also see my related 2023 blog. Artificial "intelligence" is based on human...

Blind vertrouwen

Recent vroeg ik een ex-vriendin wat ze van mij wil. "Niets", beweerde ze. In het verleden heeft ze echter tegen mij gelogen, en die kwesties waren nogal belangrijk.

These were her exact words; see transcript: "ALLY: The real truth is, I probably don't want to be too happy or content. Because,...

Is time a measure of entropy?

Recently, I noticed several articles about Betelgeuse, a "red supergiant star [] and one of the largest visible to the naked eye". Allegedly, this star will "soon" turn into a supernova, "a powerful luminous explosion of a star". The timeline of that event varies between a few hundred years to 100,000 years. Everything in life, nature and the universe appears to be...
