One of the publications I write for features occasional contributors who submit opinion articles. Last week, my editor told me, “I don’t think this week’s article was written by the usual guy. I think it was written by ChatGPT”.

For those who have avoided the news in recent months, ChatGPT is a human-friendly interface to an artificially intelligent (AI) backend. I wrote about it last year, describing GPT-3 as a neural network machine-learning model, trained with Internet data to generate any type of text (“The intelligence of AI is limited by its creators, us dumb humans”, The Star, May 15, 2022).
