Gen AI: Feed Me Your Data

Feed me your data

Is generative AI technology the true danger or is it the gamification of mass data collection?

The Little Shop of Horrors is a horror comedy musical about a nerdy florist named Seymour Krelborn who discovers a strange and unusual plant. The plant, which he names Audrey Jr. after his co-worker and love interest, Audrey Fulquard, has an insatiable appetite for human blood. At first, Seymour is reluctant to feed Audrey Jr. human blood, but he eventually gives in when he realizes that the plant is making the flower shop a success. Audrey Jr. grows rapidly and becomes a local celebrity, attracting customers and media attention. Seymour’s newfound success comes at a price, however. Audrey Jr. demands more and more blood, and Seymour is forced to kill people in order to feed the plant. He also begins to lose control of Audrey Jr., which becomes increasingly aggressive and dangerous. In the end, Seymour is forced to confront Audrey Jr. and destroy it. He saves Audrey from the plant, but he is ultimately consumed by it himself.
