Thanks for the cogent explainer.

On another topic: What do you make of Geoffrey Hinton's self-mortification/self-promotion tour? He's sucking all of the air out the room on the topic of AI, and he's mostly promoting the spectacular doomy Terminator scenario so fondly clung to in the tech bro letter. That is, he's telling people what they want to hear based on what they "know," which they "learned" from sci fi movies. Meanwhile the more nuanced perspectives offered by Bender/Gebru/McQuillan are being sidelined--and Hinton is even mansplaining/scolding Gebru.
