The beneficiaries of the government's cleanup efforts include Century Aluminum Company, which could receive up to half a billion dollars to build the nation's first new aluminum smelter in 45 years. The facility, dubbed the Green Aluminum Smelter, could double the amount of virgin, or primary, aluminum the country produces while emitting 75 percent less CO2 than older smelters, thanks to increased efficiency and the use of renewable electricity. The grant, which is awaiting finalization, is a "huge vote of confidence and a shot in the arm" for the industry, said Annie Sartor, the aluminum campaign director at Industrious Labs, a nonprofit focused on industrial decarbonization.

Look, AIs are pretty impressive in some areas but in others just scary bad or worse plain old scary. This is a gold rush. People are lining up to dump money on AI because "AI". The LLM AIs are truly not proven IMHO. I can get on Google, ChatGPT and other and just simply get bad data, literal word for word data without being attributed to the author, etc. I honestly kind of hope some lawsuits putt these companies in their place. They are just loading unattributed and unvetted data wholesale it seems. I just seen one today for Google's AI that it quoted a Reddit user from 10 years ago almost perfectly word for word on what was assuredly a snarky comment about using edible glue to get Cheese to stick better to pizza.

That said they seem to do amazing at some things BUT I don't know that I would say I feel like they are trustable, I have a constant nagging at the back of my head. I think you are going to start seeing lawsuits along those lines in the future. I do mean something like "chart this data for me in this manner for presentation to a bank for financing" type stuff.

I know developers using it and some think it is the best ever but the more experienced ones I know say "hold on..." and go on to show just how bad what the AI purposed was. We just had one of those a couple weeks ago. All I could do not to laugh at my guy for throwing a query up purposed as optimized by an AI in a chat. He took an optimized statement and told us we were doing it wrong. It was so bad my jaw dropped and I am not a guru. I wanted to ask him if he even knew how to write SQL for our engine but our Web Architect beat me to it.
