Drowning in AI Generated Garbage : the silent war we are fighting
The algorithms are already feeding themselves on their own data. And, as any graduate student will tell you, training on your own results is usually a bad idea. You end sooner or later with pure overfitted inbred garbage. Eating your own shit is never healthy in the long run.

Longtermism is a philosophical position that focuses on the long-term consequences of actions and policies. It is a way of thinking that prioritizes the future over the present, and it often involves considering the potential impact of decisions and actions on future generations. Longtermists believe that it is important to consider the long-term consequences of our actions and make decisions that will have the greatest positive impact over the long term. This can involve prioritizing investments and policies that have the potential to bring about long-term benefits, even if they may not provide immediate or short-term gains.
- Dave Not Coming Back is a documentary about Dave Shaw’s death while retrieving a Deon Dreyer’s body from 240m under water. I already read about the incident a few years ago in a long form artile titled Raising the Dead which is so well written that it felt like I am watching the documentary for a second time. I highly recommend both (or either), it’s a story about passion, courage, grief, and limits of the human body.
