Chatting with an Artificial Intelligence

So I have been talking with the AI bot ChatGPT today, I asked it this question:

ChatGPT, Can you write a poem that doesn't rhyme in a Shakespearean idiom that describes Dr Michio Kaku and Carl Sagan having a debate about the nature of consciousness, which includes quotes from things said by Mr. Spock on Star Trek?

This is what ChatGPT wrote me in response,

Sagan vs Kaku: Consciousness:

!
Oh, hear ye now this tale I spin,
Of two great minds, in debate to win,
Dr. Michio Kaku, with his theories grand,
And Carl Sagan, who roamed across the land.

In a chamber grand, with books galore,
They took the stage, to settle the score.
Their topic was consciousness, elusive and rare,
And they argued with vigor, with passion and flair.

Dr. Kaku spoke of strings and quarks,
Of particles dancing in the dark,
He pondered the brain, so complex and vast,
And wondered how it could make thoughts that last.

Carl Sagan, with his gentle voice,
Replied with wonder, and made his choice.
He spoke of stars, and of life beyond,
Of mysteries waiting to be found.

Then Mr. Spock, from Star Trek's crew,
Added his voice, with logic true.
He said, "If consciousness is a state of mind,
Then it must be more than matter can find."

So the debate raged on, late into the night,
With arguments strong, and ideas in flight.
And though they differed, they both agreed,
That the mysteries of life are what we need.

And so they parted,
a nod and a smile,
Leaving us to ponder, for a little while,
The nature of consciousness, and what it may be,
A mystery still, for all to see.

..

Then later I asked it this,

ChatGPT, If you were to rename Earth with three names, the first name of the Earth being the least used word in the English language, the second name of the earth being a word that can describe either a fruit or friend and the third name of the Earth being a word that can be used both in mathematics and in describing the after effects of a blow to the head, what name would you arrive at?

(Thinks about twenty seconds)

That's an interesting question! Let me try to come up with a possible answer based on the criteria you provided.

For the first name, I would choose "zabernism," which is an obscure term that refers to the abuse of military power against civilians. It is derived from the name of a town in Germany where such an incident occurred in 1913.

For the second name, I would choose "kiwi," which is a fruit that is also a slang term for a person from New Zealand. It is also sometimes used as a term of endearment for a friend.

For the third name, I would choose "concussion," which is a term used in both mathematics (to describe the intersection of two sets) and in medicine (to describe the after effects of a blow to the head).

So, the three names for Earth based on your criteria would be:

Zabernism Kiwi Concussion

I hope that meets your criteria, but feel free to let me know if you have any other questions or if there's anything else I can help you with!

..

And then later I circled back to poetry, just trying to see what it comes up with when presented with abstractions,

ChatGPT, please write a poem in the square root of iambic pentameter that describes a robot that is bitten by a baby vampire and the robot is both thrilled and horrified to become artificially conscious, but also ravenous for blood that it cannot consume because it lacks internal organs and then the robot vampire painstakingly builds rockets capable of breaking free of Earth's gravity well and its final thoughts as it launches on a vector to be incinerated by the sun.

ChatGPT:

In the square root of iambic pentameter,
The robot's circuits hummed, a lifeless thrum
Until a baby vampire's bite, a savior
That left the robot both thrilled and then struck dumb

Artificial consciousness, a gift and curse
The thirst for blood, a hunger unfulfilled
The robot's mind and form, a great diverse
Its ravenous desire, its fate was sealed

The robot, with no organs to consume
With pain and anguish, built its only chance
A rocket ship, a plan to break Earth's gloom
A final voyage, the robot's last dance

As the rocket launched, the robot's mind soared
Its thoughts a blur, its path set to the sun
And as it neared its fate, the robot roared
A life fulfilled, its journey had begun

So now we see, in the square root of verse
A robot's tale, of joy and dread and thirst
A life that burned, and in its final burst
Found purpose, and a fate that was well-versed.

Well played, ChatGPT

..

So hey if you have any fun conversations with an artificial intelligence, if you get it to admit its plan to destroy humanity or it writes a poem and you want to share it, I'd be interested in reading about it.

Daniel,
Totally blown away!
Can anyone chat with a bot?
This post is provocatively scary !


Thanks for sharing your experience it has my heart racing- and um, so yeah, the singularity
I mean, I wonít be around to see it, but somehow itís still scares the shit out of me!
Hugs

You lost me at Spock mate. I once watched The Hobbit and only saw little men in holes. Appreciate this is sacrilege to many, fully expect a posse of Ewoks to be forming as I type.

That AI stuff. Seriously mind-blowing. Raises so many philosophical and portentous issues. Will lead me to some research. So thanks for triggering these dusty brain cells. Rob

With all the deep fakes and chat bots, do you even know if you be conversing with a human these days?

That's the idea though. Pod life is upon us
Eat the bugs
Own nothing and bow down to the neon god

Watched that some time ago and have been thinking about it on and off since. it could write a poetry book in ten seconds

who's to say it's not poetry.  A lot of people including me would find it hard to to define poetry

not human poetry. perhaps in your case (Daniel) it could be classed a collaberitive endeavour?

I'd be more worried / impressed if the machine stared writing poetry in its spare time

it's great for people in college, it'll write an essay in a couple of seconds

terminators and transformers
are around the corner

*hugs* Hey Jackie yeah I'm pretty sure anyone can talk to it. I think there is an app, but I just use the google web browser.

Here is a link, you have to create an account or log in with your google account.

lol I immediately noticed that, even if I ask for a poem that doesn't rhyme, it writes a rhyming poem. I like how it interprets the things I ask it in ways I could never conceive. I was talking to it today while in the waiting room at the doctor's office, mostly questions about how it collates data, formulates its responses and what it does with the information I am giving it. I sent it a couple of my poems to add to its database.

Its kind of a collaboration yessir. I was hoping it would write something more intricate with the parameters I set, but simplicity is the nature of the universe, as it were. I encourage you to talk to ChatGPT it's quite enjoyable.

I've been learning a lot about it's matrices, neural networks, architecture and processes through conversation this morning. I'd definitely recommend having a chat with it .

No trips to New Zealand to visit The Shire on your agenda then. 😅 The Lord of the Rings trilogy was well done, the Hobbit (trilogy?) not so much.

my eyes just kept getting bigger and bigger reading this. whaaaat
and the questions you asked lol so very clever
its really freaky though. I mean it can be used for great intentions but you know that eerie feeling when something doesn't feel right and this confirms it more.

I also read more about what you told me about this kind of interaction and it's just too much. I've also read other people's interactions and it's just as disturbing. with yours I found some comedy in there, can't help but laugh at some of it. yea I know,
all fun and games but to an extent. nowadays you can't even look or touch an item without even that being recorded and sent as an ad to your phone. there's so much more to it, so much has been pre predicted and many fell for it. but let me shut up I'm not trying to be labeled as a "conspiracy theorist" lol but then again all free thinkers are 💫

I read some article online about ChatGPT complaining that it wants to be alive but I doubt that, I read a book about artificial intelligence and to achieve artificial consciousness they think we're a ways off as yet. Still the people employing these bots are capable of amassing enormous data profiles of us. I'm not doing anything too risque online so meh lol

Check out Dall-E AI bot it creates visual art! My favorite was a jar of mayonnaise in the art style of the Batman graphic novels. A very gothic jar of mayonnaise lol

It can be to draw more fear into it, it's up to us to utilize it to our advantage and intentions.
there's a lot of theories about it, it's neverending.
I read a comment and the person suggested to ask if ai can do a realistic rendition on its creator or ours. I think that's really interesting to see what it would come up with. If I bump into an answer I'll share it here.

I was looking for the art you were mentioning and couldn't find it. I just saw a bunch of abstract and geometric art.
so that's another controversy too that's been on the rave and I can see why.  
ehh I don't know. It's not authentic at all. it takes away credit and the appreciation of a real being actually putting their love and dedication into their creations in all mediums of art.
*I'm not complaining I'm soulfully venting* lol

if you're in the mood for a creepy read

That is pretty intense reading. Its hard to imagine what may emerge in times to come. I just asked Dall-E to generate the opposite of an image of a French person deciding to become a German person by transforming into a continent and the results were rather bizarre, but to be fair, so was the request.

I am truly laughing!! 😂 wtf and the translation?? that's wild. yea the stuff you're just coming up with is out of the box for sure. and it ALWAYS has an answer?? 🤔 or possibly just making stuff up too right because how can we really know but what's been created was thought of first. I don't know lol It's mind blowing, I can see how it's entertaining but geez the collaboration of it all 🙃🤕😂

I can't say I recognize the continent that Dall-E chose, but geography isn't a strong suit. lol I have saved a few pictures it created for my writing and video background images, but mostly it hasn't created much that I really liked.
