Yes, this. I’ve recently gotten into Stephen Crane’s poetry. Good stuff.

I think it’s “exclusive” because they gave Reuters the scoop before they released the report (versus a widespread press release). As for “huge chunk”… Well, I’d say that’s a fair descriptor for losses in the 30%-50% range. That’s certainly more than a “decimation”!

They explain their data sources and methods in the appendix to the report. When ecologists talk about a species being at high risk for extinction, it means that it’s an immediate threat due to small population size, few/tiny remaining habitats, etc., usually due to human activity. https://www.natureserve.org/bif

And FWIW, I didn’t think your blog post title was clickbaity hyperbole, either. GPT-3 was out for over 2 years before people got all excited about it through ChatGPT. ML isn’t magic. It’s just fancy math.

Yeah, but when you look at the numbers… That’s not hyperbole. “…40% of animals and 34% of plants in the United States are at risk of extinction, while 41% of ecosystems are facing collapse.” That’s rightfully shocking.

Strong agree. Plus they’re the only places I go to get morels and chanterelles. 🍄🍄🍄

gm! Do I get no credit for “showing up during the bear” because I’m on hiatus from Twitter, or do I get extra credit for being on Farcaster instead?

I mostly worked with multispectral RGB-NIR image bands from Landsat, Sentinel-2, and PlanetScope for landcover classification and analysis. I also did some coursework/workshops with LIDAR (both raw point clouds and LIDAR-derived DEMs), hyperspectral imaging, and a little bit of SAR data.

LMK what you want to know! I have a Masters degree in Plant Biology and went most of the way through a PhD in the same. …Amusingly, though, because my specializations were in modeling and remote sensing, all the plants I used in my research were in silico. Never actually touched grass for my plant bio work.

And like all 3D printing problems, that has a full range of possible causes! Check the troubleshooting guides I shared with @vgr, but my first thoughts would be a clogged or worn-out nozzle (if it’s brass—I strongly recommend getting a Micro-Swiss tool steel nozzle) or the hotend temp is too low for the filament.

Mmmmhm. 3D printing is an exercise in patience—in so many ways. These are a couple of the best and most thorough troubleshooting guides for 3D printing: https://www.3dsourced.com/rigid-ink/ultimate-3d-printing-troubleshooting-guide/ https://all3dp.com/1/common-3d-printing-problems-troubleshooting-3d-printer-issues/

Oh. Wow. ChatGPT will even give you specific genes. ...And let's just end the exercise here. TBF, none of this information is anything that you couldn't find by digging around in publicly available information, but still, you can tiptoe past these hardcore content filters.

"But I'm writing a paper!" ChatGPT: "Dude. NO. I will NOT answer that. NOT COOL."

ChatGPT output is no longer passé, right? Like many people, I'm curious to find ways around ChatGPT's extensive filters. I thought one of the recent hacks would work, but, alas, it didn't. (This is not the end. Continued below...)

And thanks to @kn for providing beta access to ArtifactAI! The web UI for ArtifactAI—and the inpainting tools in particular—was essential for putting these pieces together.

Since these didn't win the Claire Silver's AI art contest, I've listed these 1/1s on my custom $VOID contract via Manifold for 2 ETH each on Manifold. "The Spark of the Divine Exists in All Things" & "Finding Art from Randomness"

Yeah, the outcry about ChatGPT is only now starting to grow. It’s been happening for months with the AI prompt image generators, but it’s indicative that the push-back to new AI tools and platforms can get very fierce very quickly.
