Artificial Intelligence And Scientism
I am not as optimistic about artificial intelligence as many others are on the right.
But at least it will replace the priests of scientism [source]:
ChatGPT listed as author on research papers: many scientists disapprove
At least four articles credit the AI tool as a co-author, as publishers scramble to regulate its use.
The artificial-intelligence chatbot ChatGPT is disrupting many industries, including academia.
The artificial-intelligence (AI) chatbot ChatGPT that has taken the world by storm has made its formal debut in the scientific literature — racking up at least four authorship credits on published papers and preprints.
Journal editors, researchers and publishers are now debating the place of such AI tools in the published literature, and whether it’s appropriate to cite the bot as an author. Publishers are racing to create policies for the chatbot, which was released as a free-to-use tool in November by tech company OpenAI in San Francisco, California.
ChatGPT is a large language model (LLM), which generates convincing sentences by mimicking the statistical patterns of language in a huge database of text collated from the Internet. The bot is already disrupting sectors including academia: in particular, it is raising questions about the future of university essays and research production.
You have to get a kick out of this. This is truly hysterical.
The people that believe they are too intelligent and elitist to be replaced…are already being replaced by a chatbot.
Imagine how this will look once actual artificial intelligence is able to synthesize large amounts of data. They are already afraid now. It’s only going to get worse.
Our intelligentsia will destroy itself with its own advancements. What an ironic comedy.
We’re still on the death march of technology, but I will take the occasional silver lining.
May as well try our best to destroy the crash, right?
