I found this eviction offensive, and a bad day for members of AGS - and the trust the public might have in them.
The Policing Authority was also concerned…

I assume everyone remembers the classic TNG episode "Booby Trap". Anyways it's a relevant episode to today's AI vibes.
Geordi asks the ship's computer to generate a facsimile of the designer of the Enterprise (or thereabouts) in order to get the ship out of a dilemma. Or, in today's parlance, he asked ChatGPT to generate a version of a real person, and also a visual representation of her.
And then he would enter into dialogue with this facsimile of her, to solve an engineering problem. This invoked

a) voice synthesis of her actual voice

b) a 100% accurate representation of her visually, in real time

c) an understanding of all her research ever

I wonder is @OpenAI performing the biggest act of "don't ask for permission, ask for forgiveness" in human history. They appear to have scraped everyone's content on the internet under a US interpretation of fair use. And that's different from, say, search engines.
I guess we'll see how the law catches up.
If you have a podcast or YouTube video you can also safely assume that @OpenAI has scraped and parsed what was said, at a minimum

If reporters report that reporters were suspended for linking to a Mastodon account that reports the locations of certain jets, or reporters report that reports of reporters reporting that reporters were suspended, are they also suspended?

The whole content moderation thing is going well on this here platform.

Ireland's *existing* legal obligations under EU law and under the Aarhus Convention are sorely missing from media coverage generally IMHO.

Unless the gov is proposing we leave the EU or exit Aarhus (which the EU is also party to), then these obligations aren't going anywhere.
What's fascinating to watch is the parties tie themselves in knots with "what if" scenarios that are not viable. It's like negotiating with yourself, hoping to get one over on... yourself.

They're not viable because they would be *illegal*.
I'd propose every journalist in Ireland grab a cup of coffee, sit down, and read the actual Aarhus Convention. Then figure out how many of the floated proposals would be compatible with it. It will take no more than 20 mins to get the gist.…
