The AI hype bubble is deflating. Now comes the hard part. The tech industry got the world’s attention with AI. Now it’s busy convincing people to pay for it. https://www.washingtonpost.com/technology/2024/04/18/ai-bubble-hype-dying-money/ Do you know who is going to survive? Meta, Google, Apple, and cash-rich companies. They (Meta and Google) can provide free AI supported by their ads businesses. Most people live paycheck to paycheck. Do you think they're going to pay for AI? 🤖

    1. The mode where you can't type anything because you don't know any commands.

    2. The mode where you replace everything with 'Bee Movie' quotes because you forgot how to exit.

    Was Devin's demo staged? Well, color me surprised! 😅 It is like VCs like scam artists more as they throw millions into any random AI startup. Why do governments allow this kind of fake demos? Even Google got away with a phony demo of their AI. Google is a public trading company, yet no action has been taken against them. https://m.youtube.com/watch?si=xfDb-NhQfUg1zXWb&v=tNmgmwEtoWE&feature=youtu.be
