If a service is being provided by an LLM, one of the following cases applies:
- it was always bullshit1
- the people in charge can’t tell the difference
- the people in charge don’t care about the difference
LLMs are bullshit generators. Modern humans expect bullshit in specific areas (advertising, marketing websites, customer service transactions) and are not otherwise looking for it; this is going to be a mistake.
- in the technical sense of material spewed out without any regard for accuracy or truth, at all. ↩
