Enshittification Will Come To AI

Right now, LLMs are hyped everywhere. I, for one, believe that - unlike other hypes like Blockchain, NFT or others - LLMs will really contribute to a significant change in the world. Just by how much isn't clear, and I fully expect this hype to follow the Gartner Hype Cycle.

However, I'd like to point out one thing: Most companies are currently burning money with LLMs. The race is on, and in order to woo as many customers as possible money doesn't matter. But mark my words: Once the dust settles, enshittification will kick in: Prices will go up, end user convenience will go down. Keep that in mind whenever the next awesome-looking AI feature comes along.
