▶ Another great read by Cory Doctorow: The Coprophagic AI crisis

I find it so bizarre that a disinformation tactic – Bannon’s ‘flood the zone with shit’ – is a very, very likely function of AI. I only mention this as in Doctorows article he mentions that Amazon has had to limit the number of books an ‘author’ can upload in a day. That limit is currently three lol… So some AI ‘authors’ are very busy cranking out 3 books a day, literally flooding the zone with shit. Imagine that in every industry and every communication medium… eg “Hey how was work today?”
Oh not bad, but I only got twenty new albums of [generic] music finished & uploaded. I’ll try & do better tomorrow….
