Artificial Intelligence (AI)…Opportunities & Concerns

Although Artificial Intelligence (AI) has been a part of our lives for quite some time…some of its capabilities have been front and center over the past few weeks as open-source AI engines are “showing off” what they can do. Should we be fascinated…or frightened? Inspired or intimidated? Excited for the future, or worried about our own existence? Well, we won’t answer all of your questions, but the Brothers are here to give you an overview of the two prominent open-source AI systems, show you some examples of what they can do, and help you to know what to be on the lookout for. A Brothers in Tech haiku, an estimation of what Alan might look like after a face transplant, how to knock your next anniversary card out of the park, and an Edgar Allen Poe-style sign-off are just a few of the highlights that you won’t want to miss.
