The  Yale University Professor David Gelenter's  view  is  The Danger is not Machines Becoming Humans, but Humans Becoming Machines

As a result, Cooldimi's unique approach involves creating super intelligent bots by blending artificial intelligence alongside human intelligence, which is irreplaceable in bots technology for the time being.

What is "bite-sized content"?
A bite-sized content is what a bite-sized snack is as compared to a normal sized meal. By analogy, the bite sized content came up with the advent of the millennials generation. They do not like long articles, long videos; they like shorter articles, shorter videos …
