Suddenly ChatGPT is more than it was; much more

The world is different than it was last week

I admit to being a ChatGPT fan.

That said, my jaw literally dropped when I saw Károly Zsolnai-Fehér’s latest 2-Minute Papers video.

I’ve never said this before about any video, but if you haven’t seen this, stop what you are doing and watch it now. Right now.

Nothing here is hard.

Nothing here is deep.

But engineering is about finding problems that are more useful than they are difficult.

When the World Wide Web (WWW) was new, part of the promise was that a world of programs that would have been too difficult to install yourself, even if you were a computer god, would become available. And to a surprisingly large extent, the promise was fulfilled.

By surprisingly large, I mean tiny. But even very tiny was huge, amazing, and world change.

ChatGPT’s plug is likely to fulfill that promise a thousand times over. Making the work of millions of people suddenly that much more accessible and valuable.

This is as much larger than the Web as the Web is to the printing press.

His first project saved The American taxpayer 250 million dollars. In his work within federal agency, he was often called, “the arbiter of truth,” facilitating historically hostile groups and factions to effectively work together towards common goals
