I didn't expect this to work so well. • Includes text generated by OpenAI's GPT-3 at my request: openai.com • Art by Chris Quay: www.chrisquay.com/ • Got an idea for a video? www.tomscott.com/contact/

OpenAI had no control or sign-off on this video, although I agreed to abide by their ethical guidelines and social media policy.

I should clarify that by "out of ideas", I mean that I've only got enough to last me until the end of March, or maybe the middle of April if lockdown eases. The way I work, that's close enough that I start to get worried.

The idea of a subseries where you either do the ai ideas, or document your attempts and research into the ai ideas, could be fun.

The British road that's also a boat- sounds like a ferry that's part of the motorway system. We have a few in the US and Canada.

Tom, Nostalgia for a thing that never existed is what Vaporwave is.
thornofnight 20 dager siden
Anemoia is almost a good enough word for "nostalgia for a thing that never existed" because if it has never existed, then one can certainly have nostalgia for that thing they never experienced.

Hola , soy estudiante de RRPP en Chile. Con mi equipo decidimos hablar de open Ai, excelente tu programa y como hablaste de ello. Creo que es una evolución , acerca de como ayudar en los textos y en ideas . Hay que saberlo usar como todas las cosas. Si usas un cuchillo , lo usas para cocinar o cortar los alimentos esta todo bien , pero si lo usas para fechorías estaría mal. Todo producto o artefactos que hace el ser humano tiene 2 caras de la moneda. Para que no se escape hay que colocar leyes y seguridad y saber quienes lo usan o lo usarán. Felicidades . Yo soy una estudiante de 54 años nunca es tarde para comenzar, comencé recién a usar las tecnologías y me hice un canal de youtube, está recién y voy paso tortuga porque debo aprender a usarlos, pero tengo actitud y me divierto haciéndolo. Recién supe que pertenecía a la generación X. Cualquier consejos de You tube, serán bien acogidos. Nos vemos y muchas felicidades.

Soy estudiante de Relaciones publica primer año en Chile. Mi profesor nos pidió un trabajo de los adelantos tecnológicos y encontré tu programa y tu exposición, fue maravilloso. Mi equipo acepto hablar de este generador de texto de OPENAI. Espero que nos vaya bien , si puedes mantenme informada o si tienes más material me avisas. Gracias y felicidades por tu programa. Espero aprender inglés para no usar subtítulos. Saludos desde Viña del Mar. Chile

"The beach where you can hear the sea" is too generic for its own video, but you could probably make a video about the ocean currents that can carry sound waves halfway around the world
It's weird, maybe one day we just have to press a button and the AI generates a thousand more poems by Keats or Rilke, Shakespeare or Sophocles. Not sure how I feel about that.

Of course "The Long Forgotten History of the British Moon Landings" isn't possible. But that is because it's not that they're forgotten, we just don't talk about them; to avoid upsetting the Yanks who arrived a decade later than us and only visited a few times. Greetings from Ipswich-in-Crater, The Moon. How is life on Earth these days?

Let's double-layer this Turing test: can a human come up with Tom Scott video titles that sound like they were created by a (relatively advanced, like GPT-3) AI? Here's my attempt: "I Asked 45,268 People to Steal My Identity" "The Polish City That's Slowly Floating Away" "I Am Not a Toaster" "Isaac Newton's Secret Ant Farm" "Why I Can't Upload this Video" "Don't Shoot a Mountain with a BB Gun" "The Assassination of Jerry the Mailman: Debunked" Add your own!

Omg, it's adorable that you asked the AI using "please" at the start of your request. You are definitely one of the few people who are going to survive the techno-apocalypse because you showed the machines respect from the start. EDIT: and then this took a scary and sinister turn when you mentioned the possibility of AI generating customer reviews etc...
