Thanks for taking a moment to read this month’s update. The photo above is from 26 Feb 2023, taken at one of the local Iowa City recreation areas.

Artificial Intelligence

Over the past 60 years, artificial intelligence has been in its infancy. In recent months, AI has gone through a sudden growth spurt. It has gone from scoring in the bottom ten percent on the bar exam, to achieving a score in the top ten percent.

Today, AI systems can monitor your brain waves and show an image on a computer screen of the picture you have in your mind. They can show text on a computer screen for the words you are thinking of.

I was given early access to the Google AI system known as Bard. I’ve written more about AI, and share the transcript of my first interaction with Bard in a longer article dedicated to the topic. [Read] I think you’ll find that report interesting.

I’ll keep this month’s update short to encourage people to read the AI article I wrote. I hope you take time to check it out, and let me know your thoughts.

Origins. For those of you who are new to these monthly personal updates, they began about 23 years ago out of a desire to share from my personal life about topics of lifeways (faith/philosophy), health, career, finances, relationships, effective living, and public interest efforts. This is based on the Life Map presented on the Resources For Life website. [View]
