Keeping up with debate and commentary on A.I.

.... is an impossible task, but I thought I would pass on links to three articles from yesterday's New York Times on ongoing debate, and that give some nice examples of AI bots 'hallucinating,"   that is, completely fabricating events that didn't happen with great plausibility. Great caution is advised when asking a bot to answer a question that you don't already know much of the answer to...

‘The Godfather of A.I.’ Leaves Google and Warns of Danger Ahead
When A.I. Chatbots Hallucinate

 Added note:  soon after the above was posted I came across this piece in The Economist by Yuval Harari:

AI has hacked the operating system of human civilisation
