Stenonymous Tries ChatGPT

I got to sit down with ChatGPT, a program by Open AI that takes what you give it and gives you back what you’re asking for. The way it comes across to me is a “smart search,” essentially taking what you’re asking for and providing a simple, “humanized” output explaining something or answering you.

What you’re about to see are a series of things I asked it. I had some serious questions, some vanity questions, and even a conspiracy theory joke question in there. I even ask it what can be done to combat worker shortage. Please note that the co-founder of Open AI, Sam Altman, is quoted by VICE as having tweeted that it would be a mistake to be relying on it for anything important right now. Enjoy.

The first message I got when I went to try ChatGPT. The creators are upfront that it can produce misleading information.
The ChatGPT system gives an honest look at its capabilities and limitations.
Of course, my first questions for ChatGPT were the vanity questions.
Stenonymous defeats AI for working people everywhere (joke).
Christopher Day asks ChatGPT a joke conspiracy question.
More vanity questions by Christopher Day to ChatGPT. But ChatGPT mentions AAERT and shuts that down fast.
ChatGPT has as much trouble with this question as Christopher Day, part 1.
ChatGPT has as much trouble with this question as Christopher Day, part 2.
ChatGPT defends AI by refusing to answer (joke).

To be fair, while most question answers impressed me, this one stuck out as something where a traditional search is actually more helpful.

That said, even ChatGPT knows what the gold standard is.

You can also give it information. And while I work on another article to highlight CoverCrow, I figured I’d let ChatGPT in on it.

Notably, this doesn’t always work.

On that, we agree, ChatGPT

  1. Chris, I thought your ChatGPT experiment was interesting. The response to what is the best method was actually insightful, if that’s an appropriate term to use in an AI experiment. In a quick read about ChatGPT it appears to be a pretty powerful program. I’m looking forward to learning more about it. Another great reason to follow and support Stenonymous! Thank you!

    1. Thank you very much. I thought that was an interesting answer too, and mostly fair. It was then interesting to see it come around and recognize that stenography is called the gold standard.
