@ssmith1226 said in Bots are getting scary:
I agree that the “free public version” that I have access to has limited abilities in certain areas, but imagine what the capabilities will be in 5, 10, or 25 years. In the mean while consider what a human writer can do with this. Here are some extreme examples:
Put the following text into the style of Chaucer. ***“And so we see yet again how Chatgpt is all style and little substance.
You gave it some clever prompts, and the results are fun to read, but nobody could read that and actually gain any understanding of how Adams’ teachings were different from Chicowitz’s.
I’m not saying that AI will never threaten real writers, perhaps it will improve, but in this current implementation I think the only writers who need to fear for their jobs are middling copywriters and corporate PR drones who are already churning out meaningless molasses for the masses. Good riddance to such jobs, I say.”***
Lo and behold, good sirs and ladies, doth Chatgpt showeth us once more its mastery o'er style, yet lacketh substance in its words. Ye gave it clever prompts, and the results doth entertain, yet none may gain true understanding of how Adams' teachings doth differ from Chicowitz's.
I doth not say that AI shall ne'er threaten true scribes, perchance it shall improve, but in this current form, I doth believe that only those writers who pen mediocre words and speaketh nought but empty sweet nothings for the masses need fear for their livelihoods. Farewell and good riddance to such tasks, I sayeth.
Put the same text into the style of JR Tolkien
Behold, the deeds of ChatGPT yet again reveals its skill in the art of words, yet the depth of its meaning is found wanting. Ye gave it clever prompts, and the results are pleasing to the ear, but none shall find true understanding of the distinctions betwixt the teachings of Adams and Chicowitz therein.
I do not say that this device of Men shall ever pose a true threat to the craft of true scribes, for perchance it shall improve. But in this present form, let only those who pen mediocre words and speak naught but empty promises to the multitude fear for their livelihood. Farewell and good riddance to such works I say.
Ok so you managed find a style it didn’t imitate well…
That’s not how I remember Tolkien, anyway.
Plus, it reversed the meaning of one of my sentences: “shall ever” should have been “shall never”…
As for the Shakespeare, I don’t think it has its “doths” and “lackeths” down. I don’t think it’s using proper Elizabethan grammar?
Anyway, I don’t know if you’re agreeing or disagreeing with me.
