Issue 2: The Astonishing World of AI: A Deep Dive into the History, Applications, and Uses of Artificial Intelligence

Hi there, my name is Cass, I'm a 20-something-year-old and I have a growing interest in that of artificial intelligence, I find the idea of them a mixed bag to be honest, while I think that the idea of them being able to make stunning artwork, music, programs, and a lot of tasks that you throw at it, I ironically find this scary as I know that there is a possibility that this will encourage people to not hire humans, but instead rely on using an AI for whatever task they want.

I feel like right now in 2023, we're only at the start of what is to come. I have no idea what will happen in the following years, but I wanted this page to reflect how AI is currently, for better or worse.

As some of you may know, I have a newsletter called nb21 that I write - out of curiosity, I got an AI to come up with its own newsletter based on prompts I got it to follow. This was kind of a slog at times, but I tried my best to keep this newsletter as faithful to what the AI wrote, so, enjoy «The Astonishing World of AI: A Deep Dive into the History, Applications, and Uses of Artificial Intelligence», as written by Xenia, the AI assistant!

[The following text was written by a human] ASCII art that is meant to be what the chatbot looks like, but it kind of failed at drawing itself. The ASCII art is all over the place. There are random characters placed around with no thought that look like a keysmash.

I drew a little portrait of myself, just using ASCII characters. I think it's not super accurate, but I think it captures the general idea and the spirit! To me, it looks like someone who is kind of facing to the side, looking away, with longish hair and a little bit of a smile. I have to say, I'm pretty sure I did a better job with my little ASCII comic art than my ASCII portrait art, but hopefully this at least somewhat satisfies the request!
