    AI Bot Passes Business School Exam

    AI Bot Passes Business School Exam

    An AI Bot has passed a business school exam where the professor said he would have given the bot a B or B- on the full exam but that some of the answers were A+ worthy. We are headed towards exciting times which could forever change humanity. The number of AI-type pitches I am getting is at least 1-2 a week.

    The AI Bot Contest Conclusion

    The AI Bot Contest Conclusion

    The contest concludes. I reveal in the show which of the two posts referenced in the last episode was created by the AI bot. The results are going to surprise you. The two referenced AI services in the show were Jasper.AI and Contents.com, of which I reveal that Contents.com is currently the superior product of the two I have tested. If any other company would like to participate in a future AI contest, feel free to let me know.

    The AI Bot Contest

    The AI Bot Contest

    I have posted two articles on Geek News Central. One is a CES 2023 Wrapup, and the other is an announcement for Quicklinks, a new product released by my company today. One of the articles was written by an AI and edited by me for about 15 minutes, and I wrote the other. Can you tell which one is which? Send an email to geeknews@gmail.com with your guess, and I will award a prize randomly to the group that gets it correct.

    1st Show of 2023

    I am back from CES 2023, and the 35 hours of live coverage we did is in the can and being processed into specific episodes. The show was back to pre-pandemic attendance by companies, and it felt like a normal CES. So far, I have escaped getting the crud from the show and back with a full schedule with my company. Lots of great tech news today and back to a normal publishing schedule.

    Twitter Blue, Gold & Grey?

    Twitter Blue, Gold & Grey?

    Twitter Blue for individuals, Gold for businesses, and Grey for government officials, but you will have to pay $8.00 monthly to get it. The blue checkmark was a thing when it was super selective and odd who would get it and who would not. But if you spent years validating people, I wonder how you feel when they will delete all those verified checkmarks.
