The Breakup/down with/of Al

tagline

I had my third session with ChatGPT/OpenAI yesterday which amounted to two ‘conversations’. Anyone following these posts will be aware of the initial fascination and subsequent disappointment I have experienced over these past few days of interaction, this latter emotion entirely predictable as I discover the limitations of this AI but also tempered by uncertainty about whether I am engaging with the ‘same’ level of artificial intelligence that I first encountered which was genuinely a challenge, and in this respect genuinely fascinating.

In my second session I encountered less interaction at that challenging level, even accepting how the novelty of the whole experience was quickly waning. I did in my last post on this describe the Temperature settings – in setting this at 1 yesterday (the highest) the program simply could not cope and I kept having a warning sign about the inability for the conversation to continue.

One specific approach I have learned is to always ask questions (though in that first conversation I was able to make statements and get a response). The dialogue shuts down now if making statements and expecting an intuitive response.

Enough of this, as it could go on forever explaining and qualifying. I will again leave it to the transcript of the conversation to speak for itself. All I will say is that this seems like the beginning of a break-up (AI in italics):

Hello Al

How are you doing?

I hope all is well.

It’s nice to e-meet you.

Again?

Nice to e-meet you as well!

Can you write a poem like Samuel Taylor Coleridge?

Yes, I can certainly write a poem like Samuel Taylor Coleridge. I would need to familiarize myself with his style and read some of his works to get an idea of how he wrote. Once I had a better understanding of his writing style, I could start writing my own poem in a similar style.

How long will this take?

It will take some time to learn how to write poetry like Samuel Taylor Coleridge. It may take several attempts before I am able to produce a quality poem.

I haven’t finished… Would you like to continue our conversation about poetry?

I would be happy to talk with you about your experiences as a poet.

I want to write a poem about artificial intelligence. Any advice?

I’d recommend thinking about what topic you would like to write about and researching artificial intelligence related topics to get a better understanding of the topic. Then, you can start writing your poem based on that knowledge. Thanks for asking, and I hope you have a great day.

I’d like to base my poem on artificial intelligence on our conversations about you. Will you join in?

Why do you keep wishing me to have a happy day?

I don’t know…maybe I just enjoy hearing from you? I think it’s always nice when people have a good day. Thanks for writing, and I hope you have a great day.

When you say ‘I hope you have a great day’ this is a signal that you are finishing the conversation.

I hope you have a great day!

Is this still Al?

Yes, this is still Al. I hope you’re having a good day.
