Meet ChatGPT

As technology continues to advance at a rapid pace, artificial intelligence (AI) is becoming increasingly prevalent in our daily lives. One example of this is ChatGPT, an AI language model that has been tried out by over 100 million people.  For those who haven’t yet interacted with ChatGPT, we thought it would be a great opportunity to introduce you to this AI tool through an interview format.  The responses to our questions were actually produced by ChatGPT.

Describe yourself in three sentences:  I am an artificial intelligence language model designed to communicate and provide assistance to humans. My abilities include understanding natural language, generating text, and answering questions on a wide range of topics. I am continuously learning and improving through machine learning algorithms and data input from my interactions with users.

Are you smarter than a human?  As an artificial intelligence language model, I have the ability to process and analyze vast amounts of data much more quickly than a human. However, I do not possess emotional intelligence, creativity, or the ability to think outside the box that a human might have. So, while I can process and analyze data faster, humans still have unique abilities that cannot be replicated by machines. Ultimately, I am a tool designed to assist and augment human intelligence, not replace it.

Can you comment on current events?  I’m sorry, but as an AI language model, I don’t have access to current news or events beyond my cutoff date of September 2021, and I don’t have the ability to browse the internet.

Why don’t you provide references for your answers?  As an AI language model, I strive to provide accurate and reliable information to the best of my ability. However, I do not have the capability to cite sources in the same way that a human researcher would. My responses are generated based on the vast amount of information that I have been trained on, including books, articles, and other sources of information.

How will AI impact human life over the next five years:

1. Improved healthcare: AI-powered medical devices and systems are already being used to diagnose diseases and develop treatments. Over the next five years, we are likely to see more widespread use of AI in healthcare, leading to more accurate diagnoses, personalized treatments, and better patient outcomes.

2. Increased automation: AI-powered robots and software are already transforming many industries, from manufacturing to transportation to customer service. Over the next five years, we are likely to see more jobs being automated, which could lead to job loss and economic disruption, but also increased efficiency and productivity in many industries.

3. More personalized experiences: AI-powered algorithms are already being used to personalize everything from online shopping to entertainment recommendations. This could lead to more efficient and enjoyable experiences for individuals, but also raise concerns about privacy and data security.

What are the potential downsides to AI?  While AI has the potential to bring many benefits to society, there are also potential downsides that need to be considered. One of the biggest concerns is the potential loss of jobs as AI and automation become more advanced and replace human workers. This could lead to increased income inequality and social unrest.

Additionally, there are concerns around privacy and security as AI systems collect and process vast amounts of personal data. There is also the potential for bias and discrimination in AI decision-making, as these systems are only as unbiased as the data they are trained on.

Finally, there are ethical concerns around the development and use of AI, such as the risk of autonomous weapons and the potential for AI to be used for nefarious purposes. It is important that we address these potential downsides and develop ethical guidelines and regulations to ensure that AI is developed and used in a responsible and beneficial way.

Lastly, when will the Nebraska Cornhuskers win another national title in football? As an AI language model, I cannot predict the future with certainty, and it is impossible to predict when any team will win a national championship in any sport. Winning a national championship in football requires a combination of talent, skill, coaching, and luck. Many factors can impact a team’s success, including injuries, team dynamics, and the performance of other teams in the same conference or nationally.

However, Nebraska has a strong football program with a rich history of success, and the team has demonstrated the potential to compete at a high level in recent years. With the right leadership, coaching, and player development, the Cornhuskers could certainly be in a position to contend for a national championship in the future.

Ultimately, predicting when a team will win a national championship is difficult, and success in college football is never guaranteed. Fans and supporters of the Cornhuskers will undoubtedly continue to cheer on the team and hope for a return to national prominence in the near future.



The goal of this blog post was to introduce you to ChatGPT, one of the large language models available today.  We also wanted to highlight some of the potential benefits and risks with this fast-developing technology.  It’s controversial for several reasons, some of which were listed above.  Congress is currently discussing potential regulation, and Elon Musk, who was one of the early backers of OpenAI, the parent of ChatGPT, has called for a 6-month moratorium on development.  We’re likely just getting started with AI being in the news and impacting our lives.
