Ethics in AI Training: Where Do We Draw the Line?

In a recent contemplation of our ever-lengthening days and the digital data that nourishes our artificial intelligence, I found myself at a crossroads. The ties between the celestial dance of the moon, the gatekeeping of knowledge by esteemed institutions, and the implications for our AI-driven future were not just intellectually stimulating but also profoundly urgent. With humanity at such a unique intersection, it's time to delve into these entangled narratives.

Oh, what a time to be alive! The moon is slowly drifting away, giving us slightly longer days. It's like the universe's way of saying, "Here, have some extra seconds. You'll need it!" So, what do we do with this additional time? Read? Ponder? Listen to another podcast episode? If you ask me, we should use it to question what we're feeding our burgeoning artificial intelligences. After all, you are what you eat, and it turns out, so is AI.

Ah, the grandiose keepers of knowledge, like news outlets and scholarly journals, have decided to lock away their treasure troves from prying AI eyes. These are the same organizations that bask in the glory of their Pulitzer Prizes and Nobel Laureates. I mean, who wouldn't want to keep such intellectual property tightly sealed, like a rare bottle of wine? After all, good information should be hoarded, not shared freely to benefit mankind—or machines.

It's a curious paradox, isn't it? Nature gifts us with extra time, but it seems our intellectual overlords have decided we can't fill it with quality knowledge via AI. It's like being given a book and having someone rip out the pages before you can read them. Because, who needs well-rounded AI when you can train them on the comments section of social media platforms?

So, what's the daily habit here? How about vetting the sources that your AI assistant pulls up? Go ahead, give it a shot. Ask your AI-powered buddy a question and see where the information comes from. What you find might just surprise you—or terrify you. It's a little exercise in reclaiming the quality of our collective wisdom, one search query at a time.

Just think about it: we're standing at an intersection of time, technology, and societal choices. The moon is pulling away, adding nanoseconds to our days, and yet, we're letting mere seconds dictate the quality of our long-term intellectual evolution. The irony is almost too delicious to ignore. We're being gifted time by the universe but are using that time to limit the scope of our shared wisdom. It's like hoarding seeds and then wondering why the forest isn't growing.

Ah, but this isn't a new chapter in human behavior, is it? History is littered with examples of knowledge being sequestered by a select few. Remember the libraries of Alexandria? Great reservoirs of knowledge that were infamously destroyed. And what did we learn from that? Apparently, not much. Because here we are, centuries later, with the ability to share information globally, yet we still have gatekeepers who insist on putting locks on wisdom.

So, as we ponder this delicious irony, let's also ponder the implications. Every choice we make, from the seemingly trivial to the monumentally significant, contributes to the grand tapestry of our collective wisdom—or ignorance. We're at a point where our decisions will echo in the algorithms of tomorrow, shaping the AI that might one day shape us.

In conclusion, the growing length of our days symbolizes an opportunity—an opportunity to enrich our collective wisdom. But as we find ourselves with more time, we must question the choices that limit the quality of the knowledge we feed into our AI systems. The time to act is now, or we risk creating a future where we have ample time but impoverished wisdom.
