unstoppable march artificial intelligence continues. In just a few weeks, AI has seeped into almost everything we interact with online, from conversations to journalism to how we search for information online. It even left Google struggling to reclaim its place on the search throne after Microsoft implemented its own AI tools to miraculously make Bing feel relevant again.
This week we’re talking to WIRED Senior Writer Will Knight about how generative AI is changing the way we search for information and create content online, and whether we should really care about our new robot overlords.
Learn more from Will about the very strange and sometimes terrifying world of generative AI. Stay tuned for all the WIRED news on ChatGPT and AI.
