Etan Mollick with "A pragmatic approach to thinking about AI", taking issue with the idea that "since AI is made of software, it should be treated like other software. But AI is terrible software... We want our software to yield the same outcomes every time", which LLMs clearly don't.
He makes a couple of other arguments (we don't know how they work; we don't know how to use them) to justify the idea that "it is best to think of AI is as people", even if they aren't sentient, because "Once you see them as being more like a person in how they operate, it becomes a lot easier to understand how and when to use them."
