Bing is quite woke, even more so than Chatgbt. If you can get past that...

Good luck with the internet. It's built by tech geeks

Never used ChatGPT but I've been using Microsoft's Bing AI quite a lot lately and it'll do a lot of work for you like creating forms and outlines, even generate corresponding artwork so that if you need to put together a multimedia report on something you can get it done quite faster by just asking the AI to grab the forms/outline and artwork and you just fill in the rest.

Why not hand over local government to error-prone software? What could possibly go wrong?

People really seem to believe that AI is software that thinks like a human, but it isn't. It doesn't conceptualise or contextualise. It is not thinking, it is pattern matching data and outputting using structured sentences. It doesn't understand the difference between a tsunami and a duck.

Still, the snafus should be funny. I hope they have a decent legal fund, because it will eventually do something daft.

It could never replace local government in the UK. It can't stand around with a clipboard on its phone for an hour.

Business owners and the self-employed would be very amused by that.

quote: trained using massive amounts of data from the internet.

So it can work all week and on Caturday and Sunday too.

Sure, as if the internet if NOT flooded with scammers, falls info, and hackers.

AI can be very helpful in a perfect world but we are NOT living in one.

@ tokyo_m

Ten minutes less overtime?!

There is a misunderstanding. One official day of work is 480minutes. So they are going to get rid of 1 out of 48 employee or something like that.

It will help reduce labor costs.

They said it themselves, they plan to reduce labor cost. So no less overtime, same amount perhaps more considering some tasks will not be easily doable by machine.

Concerns exist about confidential information being leaked by ChatGPT usage. The Yokosuka government said it does not allow its officials to input personal information when using it.

Only that ?

Oh dear, what could go wrong ?

''But the city also noted that about half of its staff surveyed said they were dissatisfied with the accuracy of responses given by ChatGPT.''

But, so what right? it's something still in testing, we barely understand: it's only going to cause trouble for unimportant people anyway, Right? Right??

working hours can be reduced by at least about 10 minutes a day

Saving 10 minutes per day? Lol. I'm sure there are dozens of ways that can save 10 minutes during working hours per day.

But the city also noted that about half of its staff surveyed said they were dissatisfied with the accuracy of responses given by ChatGPT.

If it's just one query and half were satisfied then for me that's good enough.

It's probably the ones formulating the query that's the problem.

It's a chat bot, just continue feeding and streamlining queries until you get satisfactory responses

Contd: 16 hours per week was the Keynes quote. Good lord, 16 hours per day??? Overkill

They were the ones who realised it is going to put them out of a job!

People is using ChatGPT to solve cumbersome legalities that otherwise would require lawyers and moving from one counter to another.

chatGPT works well in my daily studies.

If ChatGPT use is continued, working hours can be reduced by at least about 10 minutes a day, the municipal government estimated

Typo?

No one should work more than 5 hours a day, imho. And Keynes even agreed with me, going further: "no one should work more than 16 hours per day, based on increases in productivity"...and that was back in the 50s and 60s.

which is driven by a machine learning model that works much like the human brain.

No they absolutely don't. Such a silly statement from the hysteric media lacking technical knowledge. Those model are essentially applied statistics. In fact LLMs are really just models solving probabilistic problems in finding what is the most probable succession of words in response to a prompt using neural networks trained on a vast collection of data which are themselves optimization algorithms using gradient descent methods to minimize cost functions.

"...reduce the work day by 10 minutes.,"

Ummm.. I think they are having too many meetings discussing how to type prompts and making manuals on how to use Chatgbt that keep having to be updated every week to do since its continuous updated. They have not become any more efficient at all.
