AI Ethics for Designers 🎥

Dear Reader,

You can use generative AI ethically.

To date, I haven't heard a sound approach for dealing with the ethics of Chat GPT, so I was keen to hear this month's meetup, AI Ethics for Designers, by Pete Armitage...especially since Pete is a UX writer.

How would an ethics expert and UX writer think about Chat GPT?

Check out the video for yourself:

My takeaways:

  • Without transparency reports, ethics commitments are hollow
  • We should hold AI tools to higher standards than humans
  • Anonymize your Chat GPT data with Amnesia

Oppenheimer and Barbie premiere tonight, and somebody finally made a "Barbenheimer" trailer:

Some people suggest seeing both movies in one night, and there are guides about which order to see them and why. I think it's safe to say this "double-premiere" thing was an organic meme thing because the studios don't appear to have really embraced it. I shudder to think of the marketing execs meeting in board rooms to plan co-premieres at this very moment. I kinda feel like anyone that watches Barbie and Oppenheimer on the same night is going to get a raw glimpse into the belly of the beast that is late-stage capitalism. Which brings me to my next question: are you more of a Barbie or an Oppenheimer person?
