Instagram and other social media relies entirely on network effect. ChatGPT doesn't. It has utility even if your friends aren't using it yet.
It's a stupid comparison and I don't buy that Instagram's first year was perfectly linear.
K, but how many of them are bots? *cue Twilight Zone theme*
Schools are having meltdowns over this because it allows so much cheating but the current anti-cheat programs can't detect it accurately.
I've been messing around with it and having a lot of fun. My current favorite thing to do is have it write a song about X thing in the style of Y band.
It's fun but still crude. And it's not surprising that chatGPT is being used to create basic bitch emails, explainers, or blogs they rely on that "explain it so a 5th grader can understand" simplified language that a chat bot can spew out.
Once you've read enough gpt essays, they're pretty easy to spot. Of course real high school student essays also follow that same generic cookie-cutter style, so it might be hard to tell the difference yeah.
You can't call a kid a cheater based on a hunch. Plus, the average quality of a high school or even a college essay is so bad that some shit that AI wrote is really indistinguishable.
Yah, the average person won't be able to tell if a text was written by a high schooler, an AI or a journalist
Yeah, I've been seeing what I assume is AI generated "how to do X" pages for a while now, the problem is it doesn't really understand what it's writing, so it will often be plainly wrong, and sometimes flat-out contradict itself within a paragraph or two. Hopefully those generated websites won't then be used as training data for further AIs to write further pages and create some sort of singularity of wrongness.
For the last 10 years AI generated pages have basically been dominating SEO and near the top of how-to search results, and Google's response has been "meh".
It's also been super sanitized and heavily biased over the last 40 days as well. The replies are more often than not infused with a perfect blend of apologizing for privilege and lecturing on safety.
oh no, it's the Current Thing, now.
yeah I just saw Tim Dillon do a whole segment on it on his show, so you know it's hyped.
