My Conversation with an Artificial Intelligence (AI)

By Jonel Juste

Have you heard of ChatGPT? It is a powerful AI language model developed by the team at OpenAI. It is capable of generating human-like text on a wide range of topics and has been used in a variety of applications such as chatbots, content generation, and language translation. It’s the search engine that could one day replace Google. It’s a conversational AI that can also solve problems, suggest marketing strategies, and write codes. You ask it a question and it answers it.

As ChatGPT can hold an entire conversation, I talked with it for a while on December 20, 2022. Among other topics, we discussed the future of mankind, AI’s potential and dangers, Star Trek, and Singularity. I discovered that ChatGPT knows Haitian Creole (a little bit).

Surprisingly, ChatGPT didn’t know Argentina won the World Cup 2022. It stated that this event had not yet taken place. Either this AI hasn’t been updated or, hear me out, it’s a Brazil fan.  

Question: What does the future hold?

It is impossible to predict with certainty what the future holds. However, it is likely that technological advancements will continue to shape the world, social and political issues will continue to evolve, and natural disasters and environmental changes will also impact the future. It is up to individuals and society as a whole to make choices and decisions that shape the direction of the future.

Q: Will we live on other planets one day?

It is currently not possible for humans to sustainably live on other planets, as none of them have the necessary conditions for human survival, such as breathable air and a stable climate. However, with advancements in technology and space exploration, it is possible that humans may one day be able to colonize other planets or moons, or create sustainable habitats in space. It is difficult to predict when or if this will happen, but it is a possibility that some scientists and researchers are exploring.

Q: Can an AI make decisions or take actions by itself?

AI systems are designed to be able to make decisions and take actions based on the data and algorithms they have been trained on. However, they are not fully autonomous and typically require human input or guidance in some way. For example, an AI system may be able to analyze data and make recommendations, but a human must ultimately decide whether or not to follow those recommendations. Some AI systems may be more autonomous than others, but it is generally not possible for AI systems to completely operate without human input or oversight.

Q: Will some AI be fully autonomous one day?

It is possible that some AI systems may become more autonomous in the future, but it is difficult to predict with certainty whether or not any AI system will ever be fully autonomous. AI systems are designed to be able to make decisions and take actions based on the data and algorithms they have been trained on, but they typically require some level of human input or oversight. The degree of autonomy that an AI system has depends on various factors such as the complexity of the tasks it is designed to perform and the level of data and algorithms it has been trained on. Some AI systems may be more autonomous than others, but it is unlikely that any AI system will ever be completely independent of human input or oversight.

Q: What are the jobs that will be lost with AI development?

As artificial intelligence (AI) becomes more advanced, there is a risk that certain jobs may be automated or replaced by AI systems. This is particularly true for jobs that involve repetitive tasks or tasks that can be easily performed by AI systems based on the data and algorithms they have been trained on. Some examples of jobs that may be at risk of being automated or replaced by AI include:

  1. Data entry clerks
  2. Customer service representatives
  3. Retail salespersons
  4. Manufacturing workers
  5. Delivery drivers

This is not an exhaustive list, and the impact of AI on different jobs will vary based on various factors such as the specific tasks involved and the level of AI capabilities. It is important to consider the potential impacts of AI on the job market and to take steps to mitigate the potential negative impacts on individuals and society.

Q: Will AI create new jobs?

Artificial intelligence (AI) has the potential to create new jobs and industries as it becomes more advanced and integrated into various aspects of society. As AI automates certain tasks and processes, it may also create new opportunities for humans to work on tasks that require creative or strategic thinking, or to work in new industries that are created as a result of AI advancements. However, it is difficult to predict with certainty what new jobs and industries will be created as a result of AI, and it is also possible that AI could have a negative impact on certain jobs or industries. It is important to consider the potential impacts of AI on the job market and to take steps to ensure that the benefits of AI are distributed fairly and equitably among society.

Q: Should humanity keep developing AI or should we stop?

There are valid arguments on both sides of this debate. Some people believe that AI has the potential to bring about great benefits for humanity, such as improving efficiency and productivity, advancing scientific research, and solving complex problems. Others have concerns about the potential negative impacts of AI on society, such as the risk of job loss, inequality, and security risks. It is important to carefully consider the potential benefits and risks of AI and to take steps to mitigate the potential negative impacts. This may involve investing in research and development to advance AI in a responsible and ethical way, as well as implementing regulations and policies to ensure that AI is used in a way that benefits society as a whole.
