What could you do with the processing power they use for training AIs?


I don't know Keith, but even a hardcore math geek like me recognizes that training AI is a better use for processing power.

I have long held a dream of AI being the basis for a viable companion for the elderly.  We are there now, with ChatGPT and its many similar products.  We don't really have affordable androids, but we don't need those: we can have digital images that will be good enough.  The technology arrived in time for both of us Keith.
