LLMs are like rocks - Mastodon

I get the feeling that part of the “AI” proponents strategy is to keep making absolutely nonsensical claims like “LLMs will soon be able to self-improve and surpass human intelligence” until everyone who could form a coherent rebuttal to them gives up in exhaustion, leaving the space to them pushing their bullshit.

It’s as if someone claimed that rocks will soon he able to out-perform humans at cycling, and “prove” it by showing a rock rolling down a hill faster than a cyclist.

It makes zero sense, it’s not even remotely related to how these things work, and it so silly that it’s actually hard to respond in a meaningful way.
