Galactica is an AI system designed to analyze and summarize science papers. Meta says it’s better than a search engine. Not only can it find sources, but it can write summaries, even write it’s own reports and articles. Except that it was easily shown to output gibberish.

Meta took the system offline after only 3 days.

“In all cases, it was wrong or biased but sounded right and authoritative. I think it’s dangerous.”

Imagine a world ruled by BigTech. Social media censorship is child’s play compared to where BigTech controlled AI data access and summaries leads us.
