Great strides in AI


Well-known member
There is a new chatbot called chatgpt. It seems to answer questions on virtually everything. I used it to figure out its capabilities. They seem to be very good. There are two aspects to an intelligent response. One is relevance and the other is depth. They seem to have cracked the relevance aspect 100%. There is room for improvement of depth as the originality is still not up to the mark though the chatbot itself admits that.

A great effort!
The above success achieved in AI sets me thinking. It is not difficult to visualize more and more progress will be made and machines similar to humans in all respects and better in many aspects developed. But how real are they? My view is what makes something real is the spontaneity with which it acts and interacts. That happens when it syncs with reality. A direct connect with reality is required. Even if we try to make that connection, I do not think anything artificial would sync with reality in the same way a natural thing would. AI can do great and unimaginable things but it cannot completely connect with reality. AI can replace many things but it cannot for example, give you the love of a mother or a wife. That requires a oneness of minds and oneness of experiences in general which any imaginable AI cannot offer.

To sum up, AI has arrived and is here to stay. But humans cannot be replaced if one understands the real capacity of humans who have as their source the divine.
Straight logic is relatively easy to crack. But human interactions and nature are fraught with subtleties. I think the real challenge of the scientists has just started.

New York City schools ban use of ChatGPT — becoming first US district to block AI technology as concern over cheating and plagiarism mounts​

As concern over ChatGPT grows in the education sector, New York City schools are now prohibiting use of the experimental artificial intelligence bot for students and teachers.

The New York City Department of Education officially announced the ban on Tuesday, stating ChatGPT has "negative impacts on student learning, and concerns regarding the safety and accuracy of content," as first reported by Chalkbeat.

"Due to concerns about negative impacts on student learning, and concerns regarding the safety and accuracy of content, access to ChatGPT is restricted on New York City Public Schools' networks and devices," education department spokesperson Jenna Lyle told Chalkbeat.

"While the tool may be able to provide quick and easy answers to questions, it does not build critical-thinking and problem-solving skills, which are essential for academic and lifelong success."

The ban comes as educators around the country grapple with the explosion of the technology, which uses AI to generate text, and its potential for cheating and plagiarism. So far, uses for the app range include writing cover letters and school essays, to generating passing answers on Advanced Placement exams.


What is ChatGPT?​

ChatGPT is an AI chatbot system that OpenAI released in November to show off and test what a very large, powerful AI system can accomplish. You can ask it countless questions and often will get an answer that's useful.

For example, you can ask it encyclopedia questions like, "Explaining Newton's laws of motion." You can tell it, "Write me a poem," and when it does, say, "Now make it more exciting." You ask it to write a computer program that'll show you all the different ways you can arrange the letters of a word.

Here's the catch: ChatGPT doesn't exactly know anything. It's an AI that's trained to recognize patterns in vast swaths of text harvested from the internet, then further trained with human assistance to deliver more useful, better dialog. The answers you get may sound plausible and even authoritative, but they might well be entirely wrong, as OpenAI warns.

Chatbots have been of interest for years to companies looking for ways to help customers get what they need and to and AI researchers trying to tackle the Turing Test. That's the famous "Imitation Game" that computer scientist Alan Turing proposed in 1950 as a way to gauge intelligence: Can a human conversing with a human and with a computer tell which is which?

But chatbots have a lot of baggage, as companies have tried with limited success to use them instead of humans to handle customer service work. A study of 1,700 Americans, sponsored by a company called Ujet, whose technology handles customer contacts, found that 72% of people found chatbots to be a waste of time.
