  • Chatting with ChatGPT - The Collection 1: Nuclear, Brandis, Starfish, Ukraine, War and COVID-19

    This is a series of brief conversations with ChatGPT on a number of controversial subjects. The results are unedited and represent a range of answers, but ChatGPT is not allowed to express opinions and does not access recent news. All in all, it provides an interesting insight into this new technology called “Artificial intelligence” or AI but it is far from perfect at the time of writing in March 2023. I have no doubt that in future it will guide all our discussions.

  • ChatGPT

    by Andrej Poleev
