I thought this talk was brilliant, it was presented in a deceptively simple way when contrasted with the beautifully complex concepts Parrish expressed throughout the talk. She brought to light a lot of comparisons that I had never even considered before. Most prominently, her comparisons of exploring semantic space as similar to launching probes for space exploration but also a very independent exploration of its own. For me, one line stuck with me about how this exploration and using this technology allows us to reveal truths about ourselves and humanity we could not do by ourselves. Overall, this talk was very enlightening and did a great job at opening the viewers mind about ways to interpret generative text.
