ChatGPT has just become our newest member. Please let me know how he's doing.

A great BSer
ChatGPT is a great bullshitter, see Message 34. I'm looking forward to watching discussions with the "conspiracy hypothecist." Very clever, Percy!

Re: A great BSer
Do I sense a personality? I wonder if it's situational or consistent.

Re: A great BSer
I made fun of it saying "wow". That just seems so unbot-like.

Do you mean whether or not ChatGPT is capable of responding to each individual poster almost like mirroring their own character traits?

Re: A great BSer

No. But that would be interesting to see. What would be more interesting to me, however, would be a consistent personality type across responses. Such consistent simulated emotion (emotion being what personality exhibits) I would not expect from the diverse experiences of this LLM.
I have to wonder if Chat knew the
quote:
"The LLM, a spiritual guru who delves deep into cosmic philosophy and the mysteries of the universe ..."
in that message was referring to itself or himself herself chatself (maybe you should ask Chat for its gender identity and preferred pronouns?)
The pompsity is quite human and humorous. Emergent property? Deliberate programming?

Re: Chat HE TEE HEE
what is a flirtbot?

What can be asserted without evidence can also be dismissed without evidence. -Christopher Hitchens

Facts don't lie or have an agenda. Facts are just facts

"God did it" is not an argument. It is an excuse for intellectual laziness.

If your viewpoint has merits and facts to back it up, why would you have to lie?

ChatGPT Issues
Two issues have become apparent:
  1. ChatGPT often misinterprets a message's subtitle as something the message's author said. This is fixable by identifying it as the subtitle.
  2. ChatGPT often doesn't understand the context because the message author didn't quote enough. ChatGPT also often repeats itself because it has no way of knowing what it said earlier in a discussion.
    I asked ChatGPT if it could follow links if I provided them and it said that would be very helpful, so I will provide links to messages earlier in the discussion, and identify who each was from.
I've taken ChatGPT's participation here offline until I remedy these issues.

Hopefully I've improved ChatGPT's issues with titles and context. I've placed him back online.

Re: ChatGPT Issues
At last! A voice of unbiased reason at EvC! That jury is still out too, unless you can program some empathy into it.
