How did you make the decision to trust the numbers that the author placed in the columns and rows chart on page 3?
Did you trust the author and source because of their previous track record of accuracy?
Did the numbers come from a sensor that has been tested in an independent lab to a 99% level of truth?

1: of, relating to, or according with mathematics
2 a: rigorously exact : PRECISE
3: possible but highly improbable
We have been trusting computers, data and all kinds of sensors as a result of established testing standards. You name it. ATM’s. Stock Markets. Airplanes. Rockets. Satellites.

LLM’s will challenge your future digital “Trust Decisions” because you might decide whether you believe Chat-Brand A vs. Bard-Brand B vs. Claude-Brand C.
No different than your preference today on using Google search or Bing.
Are human lives at stake? How will we ensure the trust of our digital machines?
Into the future, our ability to produce high accuracy “Trust Decisions” will depend on your own “Augmented Intelligence” (Ai)...
