Personal reflection from Robert G. Jordan
I've been saying it since February, 2023: "We can't let the establishment regulate an anti-establishment tool."

The new way of content and art creation is upon us and everybody is in an uproar.
Art is a business. But tell me, what is the harm in taking inspiration from a Van Gogh and creating a painting of Irises - on Mars?
AI will not destroy Art. AI will accelerate art beyond our current comprehension. AI is a tool, sure. But a tool on the scale of discovering a new color; billions of new colors.
While the trivial argue copywrites, regulations, and content-pirates, a few carbon-based life forms, perhaps not yet born, will grasp the reins and ride bareback into the wild.
Leaving us breathless, the petty trappings of a sad existence forgotten.

"Generative AI has the potential to accelerate the spread of both mis- and disinformation, and exacerbate the ongoing challenge of finding information we can trust online," - Kate Starbird, University of Washington.
OpenAI, the creators behind ChatGPT, believe their latest GPT-4 model can efficiently moderate content, reducing the emotional strain on human moderators. However, the rise of generative AI also poses a significant threat, making misinformation more prevalent and persuasive.
As Kate Starbird, a professor at the University of Washington, aptly puts it, generative AI functions as a "BS generator." Tech giants are now in a race against time, developing strategies to combat the challenges posed by AI-generated content.

Summary: American firms are fervently scouting for AI talent, with some even willing to offer salaries close to a million dollars. Industries ranging from entertainment to manufacturing are vying for data scientists and machine-learning experts. This intense competition has escalated pay scales and made companies refine their recruitment strategies.
While some, like Accenture, are focusing on individual hires and internal training, others like ServiceNow are considering acquisitions of AI startups. Compensation has become a major differentiator, with companies like Hinge and Upwork advertising VP roles in AI with salaries exceeding $300,000. However, the challenge remains that AI talent is in demand across various sectors, making the recruitment process even more competitive. "Everybody's hiring," notes Lan Guan, Accenture's Chief AI Officer.
"We do not magically have thousands of additional AI developers, product managers and everything else.” - Paul J. Groce, Leathwaite

From Paper Trails to Digital Footprints: The Future of Printing is Green
In my recent foray into the world of office technology, I've unearthed a fascinating evolution. The humble office copier, a relic of the past, is undergoing a metamorphosis. As I delved deeper, I realized that the modern copier is not just a machine; it's a symbol of a greener, more sustainable future.
I recall my days of unearthing ancient artifacts, and I can't help but draw parallels. Just as those relics told tales of bygone eras, today's copiers narrate stories of innovation and sustainability. As Ashley Stewart aptly mentioned, “The remote-work revolution is officially dead: Zoom just told employees to return to the office.” This shift, while seemingly unrelated, underscores the importance of understanding the broader business landscape.
