WHEN you scan the headlines on your favourite news app each morning, do you ever stop to think who – or what – wrote the story?
The assumption is there are human beings doing the work. But now it’s also possible an algorithm wrote it. Artificial Intelligence is capable of producing text, images and audio with little to no human intervention. For instance, the neural network called Generative Pre-trained Transformer 3 (GPT-3) is capable of producing text – a fictional story, a poem or even a programming code – virtually indistinguishable from text written by a person.
