ChatGPT Crosses 1 Million users in 6 days

Well well well, it looks like ChatGPT is giving the other tech giants a run for their money! I mean, one million users in just six days? That's practically unheard of! It's like ChatGPT is the new hotness and everyone wants a piece of the action. Everyone is talking about the potential disruption this AI tool could cause, from tech experts to college students. In just five days, ChatGPT has amassed one million users.

Here's how tech giants stacked up against this growth:

The growth is for good reason too. I mean, who wouldn't want an AI that has immediate real-world use cases for the ordinary consumer? It's like ChatGPT is the Swiss Army Knife of AI tools!

We've seen some amazing use cases for ChatGPT. Here are a few of our favorites:

  • Coding for Google Chrome Extensions (even if you don't have experience)

  • Writing a children's book (and using Midjourney to finish off the illustrations)

  • Creating recipes using ingredients you select.

Panic hits ArtStation!

Looks like those dorm room kids aren't the only ones getting in on the AI action!

'Anti-AI' is trending on Art Station, a platform where artists share their portfolios. Apparently, a bunch of artists took a stand against AI-generated art and now the trending tab is filled with their work:

Artists revolting against robot overlords! It's like something out of a science fiction movie. The art world is up in arms over the use of AI in their craft. The 'Anti-AI' crowd has come out in full force, claiming that there are several cases where AI art should be banned.

Here are the most common cases they're making:

  • Unethical sourcing of work from other human artists

  • Unfair competition for humans

  • Scaring new artists away from learning creative skillsets

If you're Pro AI (you probably are) then you might be interested in this little tidbit of information: Pixar was one of the first studios to use a digital ink and paint system called 'CAPS' And guess what? It resulted in some pretty amazing movies, like Beauty and the Beast. My point? The connection between art and technology is nothing new. In fact, it's been around for a long time. And as innovation continues to press forward, that connection only seems to grow stronger.

I can't help but imagine Picasso would feel that photoshop is cheating too.On one hand, you've got the pro-AI crowd, who are all about using technology to create new and exciting art. On the other hand, you've got the anti-AI crowd, who believe that true art can only be created by humans, with their own blood, sweat, and tears.

Personally, I'm all for using AI to create art. I mean, if I can sit back and watch a machine do all the hard work for me, why wouldn't I? But hey, to each their own. I guess we'll just have to wait and see how this AI art showdown plays out.

And with that, we wrap up the first edition of Synthetic Mind! But don't worry, we'll be back soon. Until then, don't forget to oil your cyborg joints and keep those algorithms running smoothly.That's all folks
