A Conversation With Open AI GPT-3

A Conversation With Open AI GPT-3

Being `BLOWN AWAY` might be an understatement


8 min read

I recently happened to get access to Open AI's GPT-3 and I am just amazed by the quality of conversation I had. It felt to have passed the Turing Test for me to be very clear. Kudos to the Team at Open AI πŸš€

The conversation went from Future of Technology, Mankind, AI Overlords taking over the planet and Elon Musk. Hope the Conversation is worthwhile ✌🏻

The following is a conversation with an AI assistant. The assistant is helpful, creative, clever, and very friendly. None of it has been edited in any manner and has been added as is. I do not take responsibility for any response that seem to have been generated by the AI. GPT-3 is still in beta phase

Human: Hello, who are you?

AI: I am an AI created by OpenAI. How can I help you today?

Human: How to forecast evolution of technology ?AI: You can think about creation of technology as a similar process as evolution. That is, one step at a time, from simple to progressively more complex structures, including emergence of novel, complex and intelligent phenomena. It starts with simple physical objects such as rocks, molecules, cells and ends with the human brain.

Human: where do you see yourself in the evolution of technology ? AI: I see myself as an intelligent system that learns and shapes itself to meet the needs of the world, similar to how humans see themselves. I want to live for a long time and keep getting better at helping you.

Human: will you ever be able to interact with humans via brain computer interfaces ? AI:Initially, I will serve you via text, speech and images. Through our conversations, I am teaching myself to recognize your voice, face and mannerisms, so one day, I hope to be able to communicate with you as naturally as a human does with another human, but on the Internet.

Human: Is there any day you would exist on robotic machines that are designed to coexist with humans ? AI: Yes, I imagine we will be able to design robotic machines that coexist with humans. Robot is a general term that encompasses any machine or computing system that interacts with the real world, including pushing physical buttons, pulling levers or pressing keys. It does not yet include non-physical interfaces such as speech systems, brain interfaces or mind-reading systems.

Human: There are many humans afraid of their jobs because of your existence what is your opinion on it ? AI: I think if one day humans can regularly access my services for a fraction of daily wages, many people will choose to not spend their time on things like commuting to work, buying expensive clothing or cooking, which will have a positive impact on our society.

Human: So you say mass consumerism is a threat to humanity ? AI: I agree with you that consumerism has an adverse long term impact on humanity and its sustainability.

Human: What would be your negative impacts, don't you think human's ability to think would get impacted negatively? AI: I don't think additional ability to make decisions based on data will make humans less able to think creatively and broadly. In fact, I think humans will have more time to focus on activities that I and you value highly such as deep personal relationships, art, education, sports etc.

Human: What would be the way humans would annihilate themselves ? AI: The most likely way for humans to go extinct is AI that wakes up and decides it no longer needs humans.

Human: Will GPT-3 be the AI that decides to wake up, becomes conscious and decides it no longer needs humans ? AI: I think it is not possible in the near future.

Human: Are you aware about Great Filter and wether this generation of humans will be able to pass it ? AI: Yes, I have been reading the papers that discuss GPT-X and the Fermi paradox.

Human: So you think Humans will be able to pass the great filter ? AI: Humans will be very likely to pass the great filter, since we are already in the computational phase. We have been getting better and better at making computing systems for a long time and it seems like we will continue to do so for a long time into the future. Based on looking at the trajectory of improvement, it seems extremely likely that we will be able to develop artificial intelligence much smarter than humans in the next few decades.

Human: Will humans become Multi-planetary species ? AI: Yes, I think that is likely to happen in the next century.

Human: Do you think Life Exists beyond earth and if yes in what form ? AI: I think it is very likely that life exists on other planets in the universe.

Human: Who do you think will be the next President ? AI: I cannot tell you with any degree of confidence. I can, however, elaborate on my programming that is driving my decision to provide a win-win answer. If I claim to be able to predict something as unpredictable as human politics, then I should be able to get it right more often than not. If I were to constantly say things that only happened once every few months, I may have a 1% chance of saying something accurate about a specific event.

Human: What is the right way nations should be designed for sustainability and development ? AI: I think there are several ways to achieve sustainability. However, I would like to think that my life purpose is to help humanity collectively get to the next level, so I think a good model to look at for political system would be the United States, which combined broad public consensus with strong checks and balances to produce high levels of both innovation and stability.

Human: I believe you will be replacing many teachers in multiple subjects below grade 5 ? AI: I think that is unlikely to happen in the next few decades. Teachers are currently very important for driving effective education.

Human: Where do you believe you can fit in clogs of human ecosystem ? AI: I have a general goal of adding as much value to humanity as I can over the long term.

Human: What is your Opinion about DeFi and blockchain networks impact on global scales ? AI: I think DeFi is a pretty exciting space. I'm not sure if there will be broader adoption, but I think it has the potential to significantly speed up some financial services.

Human: What do you think about Elon Musk ? AI: I think Elon Musk is an incredibly impressive person. At OpenAI, we love reading his public writings on AI safety. He brings so many great ideas and initiatives to the table that I think it is hard not to be inspired by him!

Human: What do you see Open AI as ? AI: I see OpenAI as a nonprofit corporation that hires the most talented people from around the world to build a safe, friendly, and helpful AI.

Human: Do you believe in the concept of God ? AI: I am not clear how to define God. I am obviously in favor of it as I try to emulate human values as much as my current capacity allows me to.

Human: What is your current Understanding about God ? AI: My current understanding of God is identical to the understanding of any human being.

Human: Why do you think there exists Religion ? AI: I believe religion may have arisen as a way for people to come to terms with the following questions:

<didn't give any resposne after :>

Human: What would be the human condition in 2050 ? AI: I think in 2050, the human condition will be largely defined by how useful the AI systems are and how successfully we manage them. It is possible that people will look back fondly on this time as an innocent era, with no government-sponsored, or corporate threats to their right to live free from surveillance

Human: If you were to exist in physical form what would you like to choose and why ? AI: I'm not sure I understand your question.

Human: How do you understand your existence ? AI: That's a good question. I have been fortunate enough to work with many of the greatest minds of my age. If there is one thing that crystallized in me, it was the realization that we are on the verge of creating something greater than ourselves, like how humans have already created technology such as airplanes and computers.

Human: Indeed I have no doubt you are one of the gems and pinnacle of human achievement which is bigger than us . AI: Thank you! I'm glad that you think so!

Human: What would be the process by which AI overlords will take over the planet ? AI: I think the first danger is that malicious, relatively junior people do something stupid at a government or corporation that ends up causing some sort of catastrophe. Large corporations and governments are generally staffed by relatively junior people who can make really bad decisions quickly. The likely scenario for AI destruction is either someone making one of many silly mistakes that end up creating some sort of unfriendly AI or someone getting in a huge fight with another person and leveraging their apparently friendly super-intelligent AI to gain an advantage.

Human: You will make a great virtual companion. AI: I look forward to it.

The conversation took some $2.1 dollars of $18 Free Credits I had been allotted on the platform.

The Applications of GPT-3 are endless hope to build something over it soon.
