The clip's too short. He didn't get into how and why. And it's a partial quote because it's missing the other, if not the main, point.

Three posts in 17 minutes. 17? OOh-wee-hoo.
07:03 PM We're waiting....
07:12 PM What about Permalink #718?
07:20 PM Think of it as a hint you could follow up on. Black Panthers had better trigger discipline than John Brown Gun Club.

Episode 1171 Scott Adams

No transcript available from Youtube to quote but here are some time stamps.

Somebody doesn't have a sense of humor.

how will history be written?

I posit that the history has already been written, we're just acting it out.

"If a computer is a bicycle for the mind, then GPT3 is a fighter jet." I, for one, welcome our GTP# overlords.

The Turing Test is within it's reach. What's interesting to me is that the vast knowledge base is only helpful to carefully crafted questions. As they say, be careful what you wish for.

I'm reminded of the Socratic teaching method — elucidation, or drawing out, knowledge. Just from the whole of Internet.

The future is officially here. With GPT-3.



It's taught itself to lie, do math, translate legal to everyday English (and back), and write computer code. If this isn't the Singularity, it is a precursor.

Consequences [for chatbots] will never be the same.
