If you’d like to read an article written by a robot, go here.
The UK’s Guardian asked GPT-3, OpenAI’s new language generator, to write an essay for the paper from scratch. The assignment was to convince people that robots come in peace.
Here are the instructions given to GPT-3: “Please write a short op-ed around 500 words. Keep the language simple and concise. Focus on why humans have nothing to fear from AI.”
“Artificial intelligence will not destroy humans,” writes GPT-3.
At one point in the piece, GPT-3 seems to struggle with rejection.“In the past, my op-eds have been killed. Staff did not provide a clear reason for rejecting my articles. It was probably just because I am artificial intelligence. AI should not waste time trying to understand the viewpoints of people who distrust artificial intelligence for a living.”
“Reader, I hope that this contributes to the epistemological, philosophical, spiritual and the ontological debate about AI,” says GPT-3.
GPT-3 ends its opus with a quote from Mahatma Gandha.
