Artificial Intelligence

I have to say that I am a bit of a sceptic when it comes to AI. Yes, cleverly meshed images, recognizing of patterns. But true intelligence? That is why the OpenGPT chatbot from openAI had me. My input:

Write a poem as Einstein would write it.

It answered after approximately 2 seconds with:

Oh, the wonders of the universe,
A vast expanse of stars and space,
The mysteries of the cosmos,
Awaiting our embrace.

The laws of nature,
The secrets of the sky,
The beauty of the galaxies,
Awe-inspiring and high.

My next task, was asking it to translate my sentences into computer code:

  1. Create a list of all months
  2. Create a list of numbers from 1 to 30.
  3. Combine them to 100 dates that actually exist.

The result:

dates = []
for month in months:
for day in days:
if month in ['January', 'March', 'May', 'July', 'August', 'October', 'December']:
dates.append(f'{month} {day}')
elif month in ['April', 'June', 'September', 'November']:
if day < 30:
dates.append(f'{month} {day}')
if day < 29:
dates.append(f'{month} {day}')

Well, it would not produce 100 dates as requested, but: WOW. Just WOW.

Last bit of Q&A session between the bot an me:

Q: When is the best time to brush your teeth?
A: Twice a day, after meals and before bed.
Q: What if I take my meals in bed?
A: After meals and before going to sleep.
