February 2023, there seems to be a "buzz" about the ability that ChatGPT (or similar technologies) can undermine the education system and news reporting.
What seems to be missing is that there still needs to be a human programmer involved in the output.
My interest in this is in regard to how AI (oh how I hate the term!) is suggested to be used to influence search results.
Google have entered the race with ChatGPT for the AI market with their experimental (November 2023) Bard.
I am not sure how relevant this is as most of the people I know are reluctant to make searches let along ask an AI platform!
As for "explaining new discoveries from NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope to a 9-year-old".
I think that there is a fair amount of schadenfreude in the press when some facts were presented incorrectly. At least Google are doing something with the technology, or maybe it is just what I am aware of.
What the Guardian article says:
The system, called ChatGPT, is the latest evolution of the GPT family of text-generating AIs. Two years ago, the team’s previous AI, GPT3, was able to generate an opinion piece for the Guardian, and ChatGPT has significant further capabilities.
