Virtually every major tech company seems to be jumping into the AI space… despite mounting evidence that the current models aren’t very good at distinguishing fact from fiction and could lead to even more disinformation on the internet. But while those for-profit companies are busy treating the public like beta testers, Mozilla is launching an initiative that it says is aimed at developing “trustworthy” AI. Whether will succeed at that is anyone’s guess.

In other tech news from around the web, that iKoolCore R1 mini PC that I wrote about earlier this year is now shipping to customers who bought one for $199 to $359. And according to an independent (and in-depth) review, it looks like performance is pretty good… if you’re looking for a portable networking appliance. For use around the home you might be better off getting something a little larger in order to get a fanless, silent design.

  1. Trustworthy AI is going to consist entirely of government and large corporations with high ESG scores telling you “this interactive computer service is trustworthy and if you think it’s lying you’re just a complete monster who deserves no help in life.”
