ChatGPT Turns One Year Old, What Have We Learned?
With the one-year anniversary this month, I wondered what we know now that we didn’t know about OpenAI’s ChatGPT when it began. The short answer is “a lot.” Many thought that this would replace what I’m doing right now: writing about something. In many cases, it has, but we also know we have a long way to go.
Some are optimistic about what artificial intelligence brings and what it will do in the future. Some think it’s all doom and gloom, and we’ll all be sorry we ever got involved with this horrible monster.
Many so-called “experts” say that it will transform the way we live, and there’s no doubt that it will. The debate is whether it will change lives positively or negatively. It will change some people’s everyday lives for the better, and it also has the potential to ruin many others. For me, it has its advantages and its disadvantages.
Now, I will attempt to climb down off this fence I’ve been straddling thus far.
I strongly agree with those who feel trying to stop ChatGPT and other artificial intelligence is attempting to halt progress. You can’t do that. It’s here, it’s not going anywhere, and it will continue to grow.
Health advances alone are good reasons to move forward. Many focus on preventing plagiarism and creative authenticity, but this technology can and will save lives. To rephrase, thanks to artificial intelligence, human beings will live longer, healthier lives. Why wouldn’t we want that?
Then there’s the creative side. Just a few days ago, Bloomberg shared that entertainment executive Jeffrey Katzenberg believes that with artificial intelligence, animated movies will cost about 10% of what they do now to produce. If you Google “How much did it cost to make 2019’s Lion King,” you’ll see the reported budget is $260 million. Simple math shows that using AI, the movie would cost $26 million, a savings of $234 million. I’d clip that coupon.
Let’s find out what ChatGPT thinks about artificial intelligence. I asked it, “In one sentence, can you tell me if artificial intelligence is a good thing or a bad thing for humans?”
Here’s the response:
“The impact of artificial intelligence on humans is nuanced, offering efficiency and innovation but also raising concerns about job displacement and ethical considerations.”
Hey, I was straddling that fence just moments ago.
Let’s revisit this at ChatGPT’s second birthday party.
