While Matt was right about the current AI stock crash, there are also many epic lies being told about AI. From Cruise using 1.5 highly trained technicians per “autonomous” vehicle, to Musk trotting out a robot…or actually a guy in a robot suit, lots of what Big Tech is pushing is all hype and little substance.

Big Tech needs us to buy into the hype though because if we were confronted with the reality without hype, we’d realize that AI takes so much power to run that it’s contributing to our heinous race towards climate disaster. Sam Altman wants us on the hype train though because then we’ll buy into his idea that there is some “future energy breakthrough” we need to expect and due to that, and his AI, we’ll be able to reverse the damage we’re currently doing in the quest to fulfill Altman’s wet dream of AI.
