“This individual is very qualified in a lot of things,” he said.
“I find that the share of out-of-state students has risen by an
average of 55 percent since 2002 and that 48 of the 50 flagships experienced a growth in their share of out-of-state students. The average decline in in-state students was 15 percent, and five states swapped more than one out of every five in-state students for an out-of-state student.”
AND this is prior to COVID and what we’ll eventually see as a much more radical shift over the last couple of years. Rumors fly about similar things going in private schools with students who can pay full tuition vs getting need-based financial aid.
- An interview with David Holz, CEO of AI image-generator Midjourney: it’s ‘an engine for the imagination’ – The Verge
We started off testing the raw technology in September last year, and we were immediately finding really different things. We found very quickly that most people don’t know what they want. You say: “Here’s a machine you can imagine anything with it — what do you want?” And they go: “dog.” And you go “really?” and they go “pink dog.” So you give them a picture of a dog, and they go “okay” and then go do something else.
Whereas if you put them in a group, they’ll go “dog” and someone else will go “space dog” and someone else will go “Aztec space dog,” and then all of a sudden, people understand the possibilities, and you’re creating this augmented imagination — an environment where people can learn and play with this new capacity. So we found that people really like imagining together, and so we made [Midjourney] social. And we have this giant Discord community, like it’s one of the largest Discords, with roughly a million people where they’re co-imagining things in these shared spaces.
