What bequeathed us a greater inheritance the Spanish flu or the continuity of Moore's law throughout the decades? If it is the latter then what is of greater import the current pandemic or the slowing cadence of computational growth?

    Neither: it'd be the quickening pace of AI growth

    Has there really been a qualitative improvement in AI? I really haven't looked into it, but the few articles I've read about things like GPT3 have lambasted the lack of qualitative improvement.

    Actually, not so much a lack of qualitative growth, because the performance apropos the intended task has certainly improved, but rather a lack of improvement in the underlying mechanism that would enable a truly autonomous and understanding system. In other words not much progress has been made towards a generally intelligent system.
