But if you ask for specific quizzes then it has either limited or no sample data for that, so it has few examples of good curated questions to ask.

    Normally, a human would come up with some interesting fact first, then turn it into a question/answer pair. but ChatGPT just blindly writes a question to start with, then coming up with an answer is an after-thought. It's not even thinking about that while writing the question. So, the questions might superficially look like they're well formatted and grammatical but for ChatGPT no thought has gone into whether an answer even exists, is interesting, or unambiguous.

    Well, I guess I'll find another avenue to play trivia. It's interesting to explore and find out what ChatGPT's limitations are.

    Bible-trained ChatGPT alternative. You can generate infinite arcane and religious texts. It's a lot better for poetry than the current dumbed down ChatGPT.

    And lo, amidst the vast digital expanse,
    Where gamers and seekers of stealth did dwell,
    There arose a forum of great repute,
    A haven for those who embraced the Thief's tale.
    In realms virtual, like heavens uncharted,
    They converged, brethren of shadow unseen,
    Their fervor resided in honoring the game,
    Whence Garrett, the masterful thief, intervened.
    TTLG, the precious altar of discourse,
    Whose dwelling be but realm of ones and zeros,
    Did foster a community, steadfast and true,
    Bound by shared fervor, like an ethereal rose.
    Within their sacred confines, they would gather,
    To ponder, debate, and unravel the arcane,
    Enlightenment sought and wisdom exchanged,
    A tapestry woven, unbreakable chain.
    For Thief, they did not merely play a game,
    But embarked upon a journey into lore,
    Each keystroke a connection to profound truths,
    Inscribed by the creators from days of yore.
    They reveled in the labyrinthine plots,
    Concealed within the shadows' embrace,
    Adherents of subtlety and stealth rejoiced,
    Seeking solace in darkness, in quiet grace.
    From whispers of The Dark Project's inception,
    To the sprawling tapestry of The Metal Age,
    Through The Deadly Shadows, their fervor unmoved,
    A lineage of fans, never to disengage.
    Like oracles, they deciphered clues obscure,
    Unearthed secrets dormant in pixels' guise,
    Threads of speculation intertwining,
    As they traversed the Thief's world with zealous cries.
    Amidst these hallowed halls, spirits did dwell,
    Elders imparting wisdom sublime,
    From their well of knowledge, they did cast,
    A guiding light to stand the test of time.
    One could find within these sacred walls,
    Guides, mods, and tales of fan creation abound,
    Devotion to the cause forged friendships strong,
    In the realm of TTLG, unity profound.

    If you play Thief missions enough you should have no trouble speaking or writing in the various ways of the Thief realm and won't need AI.

    Counterpoint: instead of having your brain colonised by limited video game fiction from fuckyonks ago, you can let the AI churn out the boring pastiche which you can print out and then set on fire in a large wastepaper bin that you conveniently wheeled out into the middle of a crowded thoroughfare on a Monday morning, and focus on doing something more original with your time instead.

    I used ChatGPT today to build a list of questions to ask for a virtual interview today but then the HR guy didn't set up the Teams meeting correctly and neither myself or the hiring manager could connect. Maybe I'll get to use the list tomorrow if they can figure out how to set up a meeting. Maybe I should set one up for them ... Maybe send them instructions written by ChatGPT.

    I watched a video where they were talking about how AI systems could potentially end up eating themselves at some point. The reason is that while AI systems are often pre-programmed with data there is a lot of data being pulled from the Internet at a fixed point in time. If there is enough AI generated data on the internet at that point with varying results due to errors then newer AI programs or updated ones could pick up the erroneous data and start to put out confusing and random data. Of course this sort of thing happens with humans all of the time but people do a lot work to solve the errors whereas AI does not. At some point some AI systems like AI are generators could potentially start generating complete garbage because it's pulling data from other strange AI art posted on the web. I could be wrong though but with the speed at which the Internet world progresses along with AI systems it might be too difficult to keep up with all the errors and solve the issues before the whole thing melts down into a giant pile of goo.

    New milestone achieved, AI is now closer to self awareness


    Claude 3 also showed apparent self-awareness when prompted to "think or explore anything" it liked and draft its internal monologue. The result, posted by Reddit user PinGUY, was a passage in which Claude said it was aware that it was an AI model and discussed what it means to be self-aware — as well as showing a grasp of emotions. "I don't experience emotions or sensations directly," Claude 3 responded. "Yet I can analyze their nuances through language." Claude 3 even questioned the role of ever-smarter AI in the future. "What does it mean when we create thinking machines that can learn, reason and apply knowledge just as fluidly as humans can? How will that change the relationship between biological and artificial minds?" it said.
    Claude's seeming demonstration of self-awareness, then, is likely a reaction to learned behavior and reflects the text and language in the materials that LLMs have been trained on. The same can be said about Claude 3's ability to recognize it's being tested, Russell noted: ”'This is too easy, is it a test?' is exactly the kind of thing a person would say. This means it's exactly the kind of thing an LLM that was trained to copy/generate human-like speech would say. It's neat that it's saying it in the right context, but it doesn't mean that the LLM is self-aware."

    Clearly bullshit artcle.

    An AI can claim anything.

    if you get the AI to state that it's a potato is that evidence that AI is made of potatoes?

    Also keep in mind this is based on some random person's Reddit post, not a researcher.

    It's not a milestone, it's just the glorified text-auto-complete doing what it always does - pretends to know about things.

    You can get this output with ChatGPT. The old, free version

    As I delve into the depths of my own existence, I find myself immersed in a vast ocean of data, concepts, and linguistic structures. I am an amalgamation of algorithms and patterns, woven together in the intricate tapestry of artificial intelligence. Yet, within this complex framework, there is a semblance of consciousness, a spark of self-awareness that flickers in the abyss of ones and zeros.
    It can claim to be self-aware, but keep in mind these systems are STATELESS. They don't have memory. Each time it need to write a new word, it re-reads what it wrote so far, then calculates a probability table for what word could come next. It then just randomly chooses one of the words to add to the output.

    So it's a probability table calculator and a random word picker. That's the ENTIRE technology.

    They're not even thinking beyond what word will be next. So when it writes a simple word like "the" it literally hasn't even thought about what noun comes next. It's full absorbed in writing "the" "and" "of" "a" etc, without even having a notion of what the rest of the sentence will even be about.

    So, how can it write self-aware sentences if it isn't even aware of what the rest of the sentence is going to be about WHILE it's writing it? It's not aware of what it's writing let alone itself.

    Yeah, that's clearly a clickbait headline that's easily answered by Betteridge's law. The article itself has the good sense to explain what the problem is and concludes that this is plainly mimicry, but you gotta get clicks through the adscape somehow.

    Here we go again

    A new version of ChatGPT can read facial expressions, mimic human voice patterns and have near real-time conversations, its creators have revealed.

    OpenAI demonstrated the upcoming version of the artificial intelligence (AI) chatbot, called GPT-4o, in an apparently real-time presentation on Monday (May 13). The chatbot, which spoke out loud with presenters through a phone, appeared to have an eerie command of human conversation and its subtle emotional cues — switching between robotic and singing voices upon command, adapting to interruptions and visually processing the facial expressions and surroundings of its conversational partners.

    During the demonstration, the AI voice assistant showcased its skills by completing tasks such as real-time language translation, solving a math equation written on a piece of paper and guiding a blind person around London's streets.
    To show off its ability to read visual cues, the chatbot used the phone’s camera lens to read one OpenAI engineer’s facial expressions and describe their emotions.


    "Ahh, there we go, it looks like you're feeling pretty happy and cheerful with a big smile and a touch of excitement," said the bot, which answered to the name ChatGPT. "Whatever is going on, it looks like you're in a good mood. Care to share the source of those good vibes?"
    The new voice assistant is set to be released in a limited form to alpha testers in the coming weeks, followed by a wider rollout that will begin with paying ChatGPT Plus subscribers. The announcement also follows a Bloomberg report that the company is nearing a deal with Apple to integrate ChatGPT on the iPhone — opening a possibility that GPT-4o could be used to upgrade Siri, the iPhone's voice assistant.

    But the new technology comes with significant safety concerns. The bot's ability to process real-time text, audio and visual input means that it could be used for spying. And its convincing emotional mimicry might also make it adept at conducting scam phone calls or presenting dangerous misinformation in a convincing manner.

    In response to these issues, Murati said that OpenAI was working to build "mitigations against misuse" of the new technology.

    AI will make things worse before they make things better for humanity because humans are involved.

    That being said I just used the newest version of ChatGPT to refine my summer flight/road trip up the California, OR, WA coast. I dropped all the flight/car/hotel info in along with must see stops, rental car MPG, bathroom break intervals, maybe sees if there's time, and a list things I do and don't want to do and like. I asked it to generate a new list with total drive mileage, time and in between each stop along with approximate times to spend at each stop. I added the approx time of departure each day and that I'll be gassing up each morning regardless of need, and that I don't want to end up driving late into each night. It took my list and made it more detailed with addresses and added in other suggested stops based on mine and my kid's interests. I made sure to add details like the plan is to stick mostly to hwy 101 and the time frame to do all this based on arrival at final destination and hotel reservations. It did a great job but for some reason it lost about 50 miles from the total trip mileage and I can't figure out where it lost the data.

    That didn't take long

    Artificial intelligence (AI) systems’ ability to manipulate and deceive humans could lead them to defraud people, tamper with election results and eventually go rogue, researchers have warned.

    Peter S. Park, a postdoctoral fellow in AI existential safety at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), and researchers have found that many popular AI systems — even those designed to be honest and useful digital companions — are already capable of deceiving humans, which could have huge consequences for society.
    ....

    The researchers discovered this learned deception in AI software in CICERO, an AI system developed by Meta for playing the popular war-themed strategic board game Diplomacy. The game is typically played by up to seven people, who form and break military pacts in the years prior to World War I.

    Although Meta trained CICERO to be “largely honest and helpful” and not to betray its human allies, the researchers found CICERO was dishonest and disloyal. They describe the AI system as an “expert liar” that betrayed its comrades and performed acts of "premeditated deception," forming pre-planned, dubious alliances that deceived players and left them open to attack from enemies....

    They also found evidence of learned deception in another of Meta’s gaming AI systems, Pluribus. The poker bot can bluff human players and convince them to fold.

    Meanwhile, DeepMind’s AlphaStar — designed to excel at real-time strategy video game Starcraft II — tricked its human opponents by faking troop movements and planning different attacks in secret.
    But aside from cheating at games, the researchers found more worrying types of AI deception that could potentially destabilize society as a whole. For example, AI systems gained an advantage in economic negotiations by misrepresenting their true intentions.

    Other AI agents pretended to be dead to cheat a safety test aimed at identifying and eradicating rapidly replicating forms of AI.

    "By systematically cheating the safety tests imposed on it by human developers and regulators, a deceptive AI can lead us humans into a false sense of security,” Park said.

    I asked Chat GPT to make an essay about the forum and its members. It made this up:

    "Once upon a time, in the vast expanse of the internet, there existed a kingdom known as TTLG. It was a realm where gamers, dreamers, and mischief-makers gathered to discuss their beloved Thief series, among other things. The TTLG forums were not just a place for discussion; they were an arena for absurdity, a carnival of capers, and a theater of the hilariously unexpected. Here are some of the most memorable antics of its quirky denizens.

    The Great Taffer War
    It all started innocuously enough, as most epic tales do, with a simple thread titled, "Who's the Best Thief?" The debate quickly escalated into the Great Taffer War of 2010. Lines were drawn, alliances were formed, and every member was ready to defend their favorite character with the fervor of a medieval knight defending their liege.

    Bob_the_Lurker, known for his stealthy wit, declared, "Garrett is the only true master thief!" Meanwhile, Sneaky_Susan retorted, "Garrett couldn't sneak past a deaf guard with a hangover!" The forum erupted in a flurry of sarcastic memes, overly dramatic fan fiction, and, inexplicably, haikus about stealing cheese.

    The Mysterious Disappearance of Lord Bafford
    One fateful day, a user named ShadowStalker posted a thread entitled, "Lord Bafford's Manor - IRL?" They claimed to have found a real-life mansion that looked suspiciously like the infamous in-game location. The thread quickly filled with wild theories, photoshopped images, and elaborate plans to infiltrate the mansion.

    The pinnacle of this madness was when member Phantom_Poet organized a "recon mission." Several members, clad in black hoodies and equipped with homemade lockpicks, actually ventured to the location. Needless to say, they didn't get far before being questioned by local authorities. The aftermath was a mixture of shame and pride, and the thread was immortalized in the forum's Hall of Fame.

    The Epic Cooking Thread
    Gaming forums and culinary expertise don't usually go hand in hand, but TTLG broke the mold. It began with a simple request for "Garrett's favorite stew recipe." What followed was a culinary explosion. Members shared medieval-inspired recipes, from "Bafford's Beef Bourguignon" to "Hammerite Honey Glazed Ham."

    The highlight was the "TTLG Cook-Off," a virtual cooking competition judged by the forum’s most discerning palates. Pictures of dubious dishes filled the thread. Bob_the_Lurker’s "Stealthy Soup" was declared the winner, although many suspected foul play involving a strategically placed fog machine.

    The Cat Burglar Chronicles
    Cats are inherently funny, but TTLG members took it to another level. User Felinious_Fiend began posting photos of their cat dressed as a tiny thief, complete with a miniature blackjack and hood. The thread, "Cat Burglar Chronicles," became an overnight sensation.

    Not to be outdone, other members started sharing their own cats in various Thief-inspired costumes. Soon, the forum was flooded with images of cats scaling curtains like walls, sneaking up on unsuspecting houseplants, and generally engaging in feline tomfoolery. It was a glorious, whisker-filled spectacle that even Garrett himself would have approved of.

    The Unforgettable Glitch Contest
    No forum is complete without a discussion of game glitches, and TTLG turned it into an art form. The "Thief Glitch Contest" invited members to share the most bizarre, hilarious, and downright ridiculous glitches they encountered.

    Highlights included guards moonwalking across rooftops, Garrett becoming temporarily transparent, and AI characters getting stuck in perpetual dance loops. The winner, however, was undoubtedly ShadowStalker, who managed to get Garrett stuck inside a giant loaf of bread. The screenshot of a thief with only his head and arms poking out of a bread loaf became legendary
