The days of being on the inevitable path to AGI because Silicon Valley had "thrown so much capital and compute" are long gone, yet "the leaders of this AI push are getting lost in their own fantasies", such as OpenAI "getting its tools to “perform the part of an intelligent machine”, rather than actually being one.

The AI bubble is deflating as "major cloud providers are tamping down the expectations ... in part because the chatbots are still making a ton of mistakes... still haven’t figured out how they’re going to make money ... as resource demands are escalating".
