AI triumph of the week

Posted to twitter by Ariel Waldman, with the comment "tell me again how AI will take over the world":

Chris Waigl's comment on Facebook:

 (Maybe a suitable answer is: "It wasn't clear from your message, but if you'd like me to work on your algorithms, my consulting rate is X.")

My own guess would be that these messages (Restless Bandit Jenny has been very busy) are part of a phishing scheme, but it's entirely possible that there's an employment matching scheme that that's this stupid.

    I can kind of see a connection: human spaceflight and swimming both involve people moving in a zero-G environment.

    I'm not sure that the mismatching is limited to AIs. I had enrolled with
    a job search firm for a position as a Software Architect. I received a
    job posting for an Architect – the brick-and-mortar (or steel-and-plumbing) kind.

    I suppose that a Human Spaceflight Committee Member might be a better fit for Indoor Pool Swim Teacher (Will Train) than for Indoor Pool Swim Teacher (Experience Needed).

    I got a recruiting email through LinkedIn for a position in my field requiring a doctorate when my education listing makes it clear I have multiple masters degrees but no Ph.D.

    The stuff I get from LinkedIn is absolutely ridiculous. I'm a health services researcher, faculty of a school of public health, and this is the latest they sent me. (I'm not looking for a job right now anyway, but still.)
