@aaronnear Sorry, I did not see your message! I checked your two accounts and don't see any difference, that's really weird. I've copied your searches in the new account, tell me when you're sure that it's ok (once you received some email notification) and I'll delete the old account / rename the new one.

Is there a way to get email follow up on completed auctions we tracked?  So that we can basically be updated after auctions end or items sell.. perhaps as part of the daily key word email you send out?

Hi! That's an idea, I need to think about it. Probably not in the daily email because, well, not everybody gets it every day depending on their keywords (and how many they have). But I was already considering building a weekly summary with past auctions, auctions to come, maybe notable newly listed art, etc. so maybe I could include a block with tracked auctions that ended during the past week as well. And a weekly email would not be too costly for me.

My block list has to be over 50 words at least.  Some words in other languages even.  And acetate is on that list.😁

Here's all I have:

"production art" print cgc "color guide" acetate sericel xerox photocopy

Did you already try to play with ChatGPT? It's an AI-powered chatbot. I was curious to see what it could answer to my request: "Write a product brief for a website aggregating all original comic art for sale on any dealer, marketplace or auction house website"... and its answer is really close to what ComicArtTracker looks like! :nyah:

First try:

Second try ("Regenerate response"):

I've tried and used ChatGPT.  It's awesome.

The computers will takeover the world soon.

Nah.

The Modern NPC

Who remembers Eliza?

Eliza was a program you could type a query into and it would attempt to have a conversation with you.  It dated to the 1960s and there were implementations on most of the 1970s personal computers, including the Tandy TRS-80 line.  It was quite amusing but trivially evident you were talking at a program, not an intelligent thing.

Wolfram Alpha is another example and one that's still around.  It can and does produce fairly complex answers and, when the question is related to a mathematics or physics-related question is quite useful.

Today's "latest round" of this is ChatGPT and schools are allegedly "banning it", blocking access and similar.

Let's differentiate.………

It will definitely shrink departments where writing is involved. Add the AI illustration ability of midjourney and this will be the year you will see AI erode the opportunities of creative professionals.

I’ve added “color guide” to my exclusion list but keep getting those listings emailed?

I look at color guides in case any of them duplicate OA I have. Makes for a nice pairing.

Eliza was actually very simple.  The point of it was to demonstrate how superficial human-machine interaction is in terms of machine comprehension.  Its developer was amazed at how seriously people took it.

There have been several AI winters since Eliza, but this time it looks like the real deal.

The game changer is the massive amount of content that companies like Google have vacuumed up, that is being used as training data for these systems.  Before, you might do a Web search for a recipe for a meal; now you ask ChatGPT and it synthesizes the answer from the content it has behind it.  Don't bet on the AI looking at copyright notices.

Once people understand what AI art is doing, I expect we'll see a lot of stuff on CAF being taken down.

Perhaps someone should have a word with Heritage.
