BUT, it also has the capacity to take an initial text ‘Hint’ and then write a complete movie script untouched by human hands.So of course I had to try it. And in the spirit of edge-testing I decided to use the lyrics of one …

There has been a lot of discussion about “creativity” in ChatGPT and the Large Language Models (LLMs) that support them. I haven’t been very satisfied by these discussions , probably because nobody seems able to define what “creativity” is in a way that one could easily answer “yes” or “no”.So rather than just talk about it, I decided to create a program, tentatively titled ScriptHelper-001 (SH001), that uses GPT to write a movie script with a human author providing some guidance along the way.If you’d like to discuss this essay, please join the conversation on Twitter.Here is a link to the github repository.

This week I look at the hubbub surrounding the introduction of large language chatbots, the latest evolutionarily-potent development in artificial intelligence. A long-time listener asked ChatGPT to write a poem expressing Ken Wilber’s developmental stages. The result (below) is mind-blowing. How is it possible for a machine to create three verses that capture the essence of developmental theory so well? Mind-blowing, yes, but is it beautiful? Can it be beautiful when it was written by a machine? Welcome to humanity’s next stage of understanding itself and our place in the cosmos. ALSO, it’s Trump’s turn in the dock with his …
