We’re about to enter a phase . . . where language is no longer the territory of the human.”

– Stephen Marche

Writer Stephen Marche, in conversation with Andrew Yang, calls current large language models “a pocket calculator of language.” The interview backgrounder says Marche has been watching and using generative language models since 2017.

While acknowledging the difficulties of predicting AI progress, he sees “a blur” ahead.

Marche is widely published in magazines, including forward-looking articles in Wired, The Atlantic, and MIT Technology Review. His latest book is The Next Civil War.
