SpongeBob, AI, and a Crisis Among Ticket Sellers

Oct. 11, 2023

This episode is a fun one. First, Sam takes us through her story about generating images of SpongeBob and 9/11 with Bing's AI. Why? Because a bunch of people found a way to create similar images even though they shouldn't be possible under Microsoft's own policies. After the break, we turn into an economics podcast. Jason breaks down what exactly happened when a bunch of credit card maxers (people who try to gather as many credit card points as possible) over saturated the market for Travis Scott tickets. A fascinating, and hilarious, crisis emerged. Bing Is Generating Images of SpongeBob Doing 9/11 Low Demand for Travis Scott Creates Liquidity Crisis in Ticket Reselling Economy Hosted on Acast.
