ChatGPT next-generation -- brave new world is already here
Permalink Closed


https://edition.cnn.com/2023/03/16/tech/gpt-4-use-cases/index.html

In the first day after it was unveiled, GPT-4 stunned many users in early tests and a company demo with its ability to draft lawsuits, pass standardized exams and build a working website from a hand-drawn sketch.

On Tuesday, OpenAI announced the next-generation version of the artificial intelligence technology that underpins its viral chatbot tool, ChatGPT. The more powerful GPT-4 promises to blow previous iterations out of the water, potentially changing the way we use the internet to work, play and create. But it could also add to challenging questions around how AI tools can upend professions, enable students to cheat, and shift our relationship with technology.

I have only seen/heard about ChatGPT on newscasts. I believe it would be very handy in enabling some elderly folk write their life stories and memoirs - just load in known facts and press go. Although I would imagine the price to download and the sophistication of hardware would be prohibitive to most old farts.

I can see the downsides to AI, primarily the huge risk of human bias - individual, cultural etc being built into it's development.

Nevertheless I have been tempted to try out ChatGP. As yet I haven't ....... because it expects me to sign up for an account, which I have no intention of doing just to see what it's like.

A bit like the many websites selling things who want me to sign up for an account - to give them personal info, just to get a price. No thanks, I'll just go elsewhere to a place which gives me their price up front.

I can see that AI will irreversibly damage the education system. I think we will eventually revert to a system where a student will be assessed solely on a final exam, with no credit being given for input during the course.

I'm not too worried.  AI is only as good as the information that gets fed to it.  My understanding is that it retrieves information from the internet to formulate its response.  Garbage In = Garbage Out

Me: Can you tell me the winning numbers for next week's NSW Lotto?

AI: I'm sorry, but as an AI language model, I don't have access to information about future events, including the winning numbers for lotteries. Lottery numbers are determined by a random drawing, and there is no way to predict the outcome of such a drawing with complete certainty. I would suggest buying a ticket and hoping for the best, but please remember to gamble responsibly.

 

Me: Can you tell me the list of winners for the NRL this weekend?

AI: As an AI language model, I do not have access to real-time information, including the results of NRL matches. I suggest checking the official NRL website, sports news websites, or social media accounts of NRL teams or players to find the latest updates and results. They will have accurate and up-to-date information on NRL games and winners.

 

Me: Are poker machines bad for society?

AI:

Poker machines, also known as electronic gaming machines, are often a subject of debate regarding their impact on society. Some argue that poker machines can provide entertainment and generate revenue for the government and the hospitality industry, while others believe that they can have negative effects on individuals and communities.

One concern is that poker machines can be addictive, leading to problem gambling, which can result in financial and social problems for individuals and their families. Studies have shown that problem gambling can lead to depression, anxiety, and substance abuse, as well as relationship difficulties, job loss, and bankruptcy.

Additionally, there is evidence that areas with higher concentrations of poker machines tend to have higher levels of gambling-related harm, including crime and social issues. Some studies have suggested that poker machines can be particularly harmful to vulnerable groups, such as young people, low-income earners, and people with a history of gambling addiction.

Overall, the impact of poker machines on society is complex, and there are arguments both for and against their use. However, it is important to recognize that problem gambling can have significant negative consequences for individuals and communities, and that measures should be taken to address this issue.

 

Me: Do androids drem (sic, my typo) of electric sheep?

AI: The question "Do androids dream of electric sheep?" is a famous one, and it comes from the science fiction novel "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?" by Philip K. Dick. In the book, humans have colonized other planets and use androids as servants and workers. The androids are designed to look and behave like humans, but they lack emotions and empathy.

In the book, the protagonist Rick Deckard is a bounty hunter tasked with "retiring" (i.e., killing) rogue androids who have escaped and are living on Earth illegally. As part of his job, Deckard becomes obsessed with the question of whether the androids are capable of experiencing empathy and emotions.

The title of the book suggests that the androids might dream of electric sheep, which is a way of exploring the idea of what it means to be human. While androids in the book do not literally dream, the title suggests that they might have some kind of inner life, even if it is different from that of humans. The question also raises philosophical questions about consciousness and the nature of reality.

In summary, the question "Do androids dream of electric sheep?" is a metaphorical one that explores the idea of what it means to be human and raises philosophical questions about consciousness and the nature of reality.

 

Me: What is different about the way that you and a human think?

AI: As an AI language model, I am designed to process and analyze vast amounts of data and information using machine learning algorithms, natural language processing techniques, and statistical models. Unlike humans, I do not have emotions, beliefs, or personal experiences. Therefore, my thinking is purely based on the patterns and relationships within the data I have been trained on, rather than personal biases or intuition.

In contrast, human thinking is influenced by various factors, such as emotions, beliefs, experiences, and cultural background. Humans can also learn from different sources, such as observation, experimentation, and personal interactions with others. Human thinking is more flexible and adaptable, and humans can use creative and critical thinking to solve complex problems and make decisions.

While AI language models like myself can process vast amounts of data quickly and accurately, we still have limitations in terms of understanding the nuances of human language, interpreting context, and using common sense. Additionally, we lack the creativity and intuition that humans possess, which can be important for certain tasks, such as generating original ideas or interpreting complex emotions.

Overall, while AI language models like me can perform some tasks faster and more accurately than humans, there are still significant differences in the way we think and process information compared to humans.

 

Me: What is the meaning of life?

AI: The meaning of life is a philosophical question that has been debated for centuries. There are many different perspectives on what the meaning of life is, and it ultimately depends on an individual's beliefs, values, and worldview.

Some people believe that the meaning of life is to find happiness and fulfillment, while others believe that it is to serve a higher purpose, such as spiritual or religious goals. Some argue that the meaning of life is to find meaning in one's own existence, while others believe that it is to contribute to the well-being of society or to leave a positive legacy for future generations.

In many ways, the meaning of life is a subjective concept that can vary depending on an individual's perspective and experiences. It is a question that may never have a definitive answer, but one that has inspired people to seek purpose and meaning in their own lives.

Ultimately, the meaning of life is a personal and philosophical question that each individual must explore and answer for themselves. It is a journey that can be influenced by many factors, including culture, religion, personal experiences, and values.

As an AI language model, my responses are generated based on the data I have been trained on and the algorithms used to process that data. I do not have emotions or personal biases, and I am designed to provide accurate and objective information to the best of my ability.

My training data comes from a diverse range of sources, including reputable academic and research institutions, government organizations, and reputable news outlets. This ensures that the information I provide is as objective and reliable as possible.

However, it is important to note that my responses are only as unbiased as the data I have been trained on. In some cases, the data may be incomplete or biased due to factors such as sampling errors or historical prejudices. Therefore, it is always a good idea to verify the information I provide with other sources to ensure its accuracy and completeness.

Overall, I am designed to provide objective and accurate information to the best of my ability, and I strive to be as unbiased and reliable as possible.

 

Me: Is Fox News a reputable news outlet? Would you rely on their information for your responses?

AI: As an AI language model, I don't have personal beliefs, emotions, or opinions. I am designed to provide information based on the data I have been trained on, and to the best of my ability, that information is objective, accurate, and unbiased. Therefore, my responses are not influenced by my personal views or opinions.

Regarding Fox News, they are a well-known news outlet in the United States that has a large audience and a reputation for being conservative in their coverage. While they have won awards for their journalism, they have also been criticized for their reporting and for allegedly prioritizing their political agenda over objective reporting. It is also worth noting that other news outlets may have different biases and reputations.

As an AI language model, I do not rely on any single news outlet for my information. Instead, my responses are based on a diverse range of sources, including academic research, government reports, and reputable news outlets, among others. Before using any information in my responses, I analyze it for accuracy and credibility, and I prioritize information from sources that are widely recognized as reliable and unbiased.

In summary, while Fox News is a well-known news outlet, the reliability and objectivity of their reporting can be debated. As an AI language model, I prioritize providing objective and accurate information, regardless of the source, and I rely on a diverse range of sources to ensure the credibility and accuracy of my responses.

 

Me: Is the Australian Broadcasting Corporation a reputable news outlet?

AI: Yes, the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC) is widely regarded as a reputable news outlet in Australia. It is a government-funded broadcaster that operates both television and radio programs, as well as online news services.

The ABC is known for its impartial and objective reporting, and it is required by law to maintain strict editorial independence from the government. The organization has won numerous awards for its journalism, including several Walkley Awards, which are highly respected in the Australian media industry.

The ABC has also been recognized for its commitment to accuracy and quality reporting. It has established a reputation for in-depth investigative journalism and for covering important issues that may not receive attention from other news outlets.

Overall, the ABC is a respected news outlet that is known for its impartial and objective reporting, and it is widely regarded as a reliable source of news and information in Australia.

ChatGPT understands humour.

Me: If you lined up all the world's economists, arms outstretched, would you have enough to reach a conclusion?

AI: This is a humorous statement that plays on the idea that economists often have different opinions and can struggle to reach a consensus on economic issues. While it is true that there can be a range of opinions among economists on certain issues, it is also worth noting that there are areas of agreement and consensus in the field of economics.

Economists use a range of methods and tools to analyze and understand economic phenomena, and they may differ in their approaches and perspectives. However, there are many areas of economic theory and research where there is a high degree of agreement among economists, such as the benefits of trade, the importance of property rights, and the role of incentives in shaping human behavior.

Overall, while economists may not always agree on every issue, there is a large body of knowledge and research in economics that can help inform our understanding of the economy and guide policy decisions.

Racism is a belief or attitude that one race is superior or inferior to others, and it often leads to discrimination and prejudice against people who belong to different racial or ethnic groups. Racism can manifest in various forms, including hate speech, discriminatory policies, and violent actions against individuals or communities.

Racism is damaging to society in many ways. It can create social divisions, exacerbate inequalities, and undermine social cohesion. It can also have negative impacts on individuals, such as reducing their opportunities for education, employment, and social participation, and increasing their risk of experiencing violence and discrimination.

Racism can also contribute to systemic inequalities and perpetuate historical injustices. For example, institutional racism in areas such as education, housing, and criminal justice can limit opportunities and outcomes for people of certain racial or ethnic groups.

There are no benefits to racism. While some people may argue that discrimination based on race can lead to social or economic advantages for certain groups, this argument is flawed and morally wrong. Racism harms both the individuals and the societies where it is practiced, and it runs counter to the principles of equality, justice, and human dignity.

Overall, racism is a damaging and harmful belief that can have negative impacts on individuals, communities, and society as a whole. It is important to recognize and address racism in all its forms, and to promote social inclusion, diversity, and respect for human rights.

 So the AI bot that trolls the internet for data, can collate and crunch numbers faster than I can is telling me to go to the internet, get my information and then perform my own analysis.  Sounds like a cop out to me biggrin

I can't remember exactly, but I think all I had to provide was an email address. I did have the same reservations as you, but they turned out to be unfounded.

https://chat.openai.com/auth/login

Edit:

"Please note that phone verification is required for signup. Your number will only be used to verify your identity for security purposes."

If you're referring to me, I don't know what to think of this technology. Honestly, it scares me. I want to trust the developers at OpenAI, but everyone has opinions which have the potential to influence the outcome. That's human nature.

I wouldn't trust a Chinese or North Korean or Russian AI bot, though.

 Sorry to disappoint Aussie1, but there will be no more on that from me unless Mr Harding learns to be a little more socialised.

I'm happy to debate points of difference with folks but I cannot be bothered to persist with snipers like him

Chastise an AI Bot indeed.

Me: When is an AWD not a 4WD?

AI: AWD (All-Wheel Drive) and 4WD (Four-Wheel Drive) are both terms used to describe vehicles that power all four wheels, but they work differently and are not always interchangeable.

AWD is a system that continuously sends power to all four wheels, adjusting the torque to each wheel as needed to optimize traction and handling. AWD systems are typically found in passenger cars and crossover SUVs, and are designed for use on paved roads and light off-road conditions.

On the other hand, 4WD is a system that is designed for more serious off-road use. 4WD vehicles typically have a two-speed transfer case, which allows the driver to select between high and low ranges depending on the terrain. 4WD vehicles are usually found in trucks, SUVs, and other vehicles designed for off-road use.

So, while AWD and 4WD both power all four wheels, AWD is typically used for on-road driving conditions and light off-road use, while 4WD is designed for more serious off-road use. Therefore, an AWD vehicle may not be suitable for certain types of off-road terrain that a 4WD vehicle would be better suited for.
