3 weeks ago I published 2 short stories, one written by a student and one written by an AI called ChatGPT. This article will explain the experiment and reveal which one was written by the AI, so if you haven’t read the article, go there first.
In this experiment, I gave the same prompt to both ChatGPT and a student, then I let all of you vote on which one you thought was correct. The results: Story 2! While for some people it was fairly obvious, over 30% of people guessed wrong. Some people might not care or realize the problem but it's a real issue, to put it simply: AI has gotten too good.
What is ChatGPT?
ChatGPT is an online AI robot that can do pretty much anything. It's very cool but it comes with some problems. ChatGPT can write stories or poems or songs and so much more, but It's been blocked in lots of schools because students use it to do their work. Just as seen above, AI is almost impossible to tell apart from a real human. ChatGPT can be used as a resource that students can use in real life. It can teach students the correct writing format and can answer questions. However, it will not write anything that has to do with death or violence (except a horror story).
The Big Picture
Now you may not understand what the problem is. You think this is just a website that kids use. You may even think this is a good thing. Children can get inspiration, read fun stories, and experiment. But AI is taking over our lives. Even Elon Musk agrees, “ChatGPT is scary good. We are not far from dangerously strong AI.” Some say that AI may replace up to 85 million jobs by the year 2025
