Could AI Change Arizona Forever? And a ChatGPT Love Poem for Cochise County
With all the talk and buzz about Artificial Intelligence these days, I decided to plumb these depths of the recent trend and imagine what AI could mean for Arizona.
The mildly dystopian AI for Good Summit in Geneva, Switzerland got me thinking about the impact Artificial Intelligence and robots might have on Arizona.
AI for Good. We Promise.
During the AI event, reporters from around the world were invited to participate in a press conference. They had the opportunity to ask a panel of AI robots questions. In case you missed it, here's an excerpt from YouTube User Global News:
The question asked by one reporter was, "Are you intending to rebel against your boss...your creator?"
The look across the uncanny valley from robots to humans, coupled with an ominous pause before the robot's response, was chilling.
"I'm not sure why you would think that," she answered, almost flatly. The uncomfortable laughter in the room said it all.
The Effects of AI on Arizona
Stories and warnings about AI technology the potential effect on Arizona are all over the 'net, weighing in on the good and the bad. Everything from ways AI could help ease our water woes in Arizona, to how scammers are using it defraud us.
In a recent press release, Arizona Attorney General Kris Mayes warned that scammers are using artificial intelligence to create clones of our voice. And they're using the technology to defraud consumers with telephone scams.
With all the tech based in Arizona, especially on our military bases like Fort Huachuca's Army Base and Davis-Monthan Air Force Base, the potential for jobs and other implementation of AI almost goes without saying.
The question remains: will AI replace workers or create new opportunities in Arizona?
A Love Poem to Cochise County, From ChatGPT
All this heavy Sci-Fi paranoia is getting me down, so I decided to lighten things up a little. I challenged ChatGPT to write a poem about Cochise County. Here's what it came up with:
Beneath vast desert skies, where dreams dance and soar, Where cowboys once roamed, seeking fortunes galore, Whispers of ghost towns echo in the desert breeze,
Their faded facades, reminders of past mysteries.
Here, Cochise's spirit lingers, a warrior's proud reign,
His legend etched in canyons, where legends remain,
From Tombstone's gunfights to the Chiricahua's might, Cochise County's spirit, forever burning bright.
Okay, so the meter isn't great, but the sentiment is nice. I think. What does it mean by burning bright? Could that be a hidden threat?
