Nearly three months into Elon Musk’s takeover of Twitter, things are in a “shambolic” state. Is the rest of Elon’s empire also in trouble? Then, an artist fighting generative A.I. sets the stage for a legal clash.
Also, what goes wrong when A.I. becomes a reporter.
On today’s episode:
Sarah Andersen, a cartoonist and the illustrator of a semi-autobiographical comic strip, “Sarah’s Scribbles.”
A look inside Elon Musk’s first 90 days as chief executive of Twitter.
The artist Sarah Andersen on finding her art in the databases behind text-to-image A.I. platforms.
