Subject: RE: BS: Our reinvented Science - AI contributions
I've just re-noticed this: Baidu (the Chinese web goliath) has built a rival to ChatGPT, and named it ERNIE. Anybody this side of the pond will recognise that as Electronic Random Number Indicating Equipment, the machine which does the draws for the Premium Bonds*. Given ChatGPT's tendency to invent things out of fresh air, perhaps they're simply being maliciously accurate.

* A form of lottery where the stake is retained. The Govt could thus claim with a straight face that that's not really gambling.
