It’s also nice that the biggest AI-first company in the planet is starting to use proper technical language, talking about “calibration” instead of “training”.
It’s important to reduce the hype, addressing the anthropomorphization of these statistical tools.
However it’s rather weird that the solution proposed to restore trust of people in AI is a camera that can autonomously identify and record happy moments.
It is trying to get trust establishing an affective relationship of gratefulness toward the technology.
Not a rational understanding of the tools, but an irrational feeling of trust.
I won’t surprise if Google Clips will be heavily subsidized: Google won’t try to get a margin on it, as it’s more important to put one in every house soon, like a sort of cultural Trojan horse.
As for me, timeo danaos et dona ferentes.
