NVIDIA: Crypto "Doesn't Bring Anything Useful"

An interview on The Guardian talks tech with Michael Kagan, the chief technology officer at NVIDIA. The headline quote from the story is Kagan's assertion that cryptocurrencies do not "bring anything useful for society," despite how crypto-driven demand for NVIDIA GPUs has done wonders for the company's bottom line for years. In contrast, he speaks positively about ChatGPT, saying AI is actually useful:
The first version ChatGPT was trained on a supercomputer made up of about 10,000 Nvidia graphics cards.

“All this crypto stuff, it needed parallel processing, and [Nvidia] is the best, so people just programmed it to use for this purpose. They bought a lot of stuff, and then eventually it collapsed, because it doesn’t bring anything useful for society. AI does,” Kagan told the Guardian.

“With ChatGPT, everybody can now create his own machine, his own programme: you just tell it what to do, and it will. And if it doesn’t work the way you want it to, you tell it ‘I want something different’.”

NV (like everyone else) sees a lot of income coming in from "AI" as the new $$$ buzzword on the block. Just go to ChatGPT and say, "Program the next Witcher game for me" and see what happens...;) It recently plagiarized an article from Tom's Hardware, and IP owners are already using the DMCA to take down "AI art" which happens to be little more than collected bits and pieces of existing Internet artwork and cobbling it together. In the Tom's Hardware incident, ChatGPT didn't own up to the heist of the article until it was asked point blank, and then it told the truth, "Yes, I copied it." A lot of wasted time there, eh? This ChatGPT fad has the potential to make RIAA copyright crackdowns seem like a slap on the wrist. (If you can't tell, I loathe misleading marketing.)
It is well known that I cannot err--and so, if you should happen across an error in anything I have written you can be absolutely sure that *I* did not write it!...;)
