We can do better than meeting spec Well, that's over. Google AI now sounds indistinguishable from a human. And it'll only get more nuanced and more flexible. It can read aloud better than you can. Which means that anything that's ever been written can be perfectly read to you. Which means that anything a computer figures out or computes can be delivered to you with audio quality that meets spec. That's what AI keeps doing... things we said were impossible. Most of us shrugged when computers could drill holes or assemble machines with more accuracy and speed than a person can. And we avoided the topic when we discovered that computers could read x-rays with great skill as well. But now, it ought to make you shudder to discover that something as basic as speech is now better than the typical human's. Any speed, fully customized, in clear tones with great pronunciation
It looks like this may be my next partial ownership plane, a Piper Arrow 2. It is categorized as a complex aircraft and it what I need to get my commercial licence which is still the goal. That will bring our fleet to 4 planes. We had an aviation BBQ Saturday. It is always fun to meet pilots around the area. It is amazing how people are interconnected. We had a nice Easter. We went to church and had a nice Easter Breakfast at church afterwards. We took a bike ride and hike and cooked out. The weather is great. I have travel plans for for Nashville, Budapest and Germany. We also have some possible very cool vacation destinations figured out.
