Today’s column is a first: a Q&A with a non-human.

You may have heard of ChatGPT, which is taking the tech world by storm right now and giving anyone who wants to try it a glimpse of how artificial intelligence is already shaping our future lives. ChatGPT is an Internet bot that can answer your questions in full sentences, write an essay for you, compose a song, make a 3D animation, write computer code, and even write a newspaper column, as you will see below. below.

ChatGPT is powered by an artificial intelligence system called Big Model Language which ingests huge amounts of text from the internet and uses algorithms to find patterns through trial and error. ChatGPT does not think, per se, but predicts which words should come next in sequences of words based on the most commonly related phrases and concepts in the Internet data it has trained on. OpenAI, the company behind ChatGPT, made this model public before it was finished, hoping feedback from users like you and me will make it better.

Both Microsoft and Meta launched chatbots in recent years, but had to take them down after they started spouting racist, xenophobic, and dirty language.

OpenAI hopes ChatGPT is something different. The bot has now been used by over a million people. And although OpenAI has warned that ChatGPT “may sometimes generate incorrect information” and “produce harmful instructions or biased content”, the company hopes that the public feedback it is now receiving will allow them to refine the technology to eliminate inaccuracies and toxic answers so that their chatbot becomes more and more, how to say… human?

So without further ado, a conversation with a machine:

ChatGPT, can you write a column on ChatGPT for a newspaper?

As the world continues to shift away from face-to-face communication due to the pandemic, more and more people are turning to technology to connect. One of the newer tools for doing this is ChatGPT, a revolutionary text-based chatbot created by tech company OpenAI.

Unlike traditional chatbots available today, ChatGPT has the ability to hold natural and engaging conversations with people. The program does not rely on preset responses, and it is designed to mimic the way humans converse and interact. This means conversations are more dynamic and less repetitive, allowing for real human connections.

Additionally, ChatGPT can hold conversations far beyond basic topics like the weather or current events. It’s designed to understand complex topics, enabling wide-ranging conversations on everything from current affairs to personalized advice.

ChatGPT is the perfect tool for anyone looking to bridge the gap caused by physical distancing. Its features allow for meaningful and thoughtful interaction… (conversation cut off here.)

Do you think chatbots will revolutionize the tech industry?

Yes, chatbots are revolutionizing the tech industry by automating customer service and allowing businesses to manage customer interactions more efficiently. Moreover, chatbots are also used to create personalized experiences and automate complex tasks. The technology is being adopted by businesses across many industries, including healthcare, retail, banking, and more. Ultimately, the use of chatbots could lead to more efficient and cost-effective customer services.

Is ChatGPT a better way to search for information than Google?

No, Google remains the most comprehensive search engine and the go-to source for many people. ChatGPT technology is a relatively new development and its search capabilities may not be as advanced as Google’s.

What are the biggest issues facing my home state of Colorado in 2023?

1. Education: Education for children is one of the most pressing issues facing Colorado and other states in the years to come. Education funding and policy should reflect this priority in the state budget.

2. Climate Change: The consequences of climate change will continue to be felt in Colorado for years to come. The state must take steps to mitigate and adapt to the changing environment to ensure that its citizens and industry can survive and thrive.

3. Healthcare: Access to healthcare is a critical issue in Colorado and across the country, and the state must continue to make progress to ensure everyone in the state has access affordable and quality health care.

4. Immigration: Colorado is home to many immigrants and the policies adopted by the state in its immigration policies will have a direct impact on its economy and its citizens.

5. Jobs and the Economy: Colorado’s economy is strong, but that strength must be leveraged to… (again, the conversation was cut off here.)

Is ChatGPT inherently progressive, given that it was built by progressive scientists?

No, ChatGPT is not “inherently progressive” simply because it was built by progressive scientists. The technology itself has no political or ideological implications and could be used in various ways by people of any political orientation.

Since ChatGPT relies on the internet for its information and there is misinformation on the internet, won’t the answers be reliable?

No. ChatGPT has a commenting system that allows users to rate the answers to each question. This feedback helps ChatGPT improve its accuracy over time by providing the system with more data and refining its understanding of new conversations. The system also continuously updates information from trusted sources or verified sources on current events to ensure the reliability of the answers it provides.

Can teachers tell the difference between a ChatGPT trial and a student trial?

It depends on the quality of the essay written by the ChatGPT and the writing skills of the student. If the ChatGPT essay is of good quality and the student has strong writing skills, it can be difficult to tell the difference. If the ChatGPT essay is of poor quality and the student is a weaker writer, it may be easier to tell the difference.

In closing, could you write a John Denver style song about skiing?

Verse 1

Skiing on the mountain, feeling the cold in the air,

Under the open sky, stunning views everywhere.

It’s you and me divine’ down the slope,

Navigate quickly and freely, the freedom we grant.


Oh how I love skiing, a whirlwind I can’t stop.

I’m going higher and higher, the view I have to see.

Every time I ski I feel alive,

On the way to pure delight.

Verse 2

Race down, with the snow like a pillow,

Dance on the drifts and run on the hills.

It’s such a lark, the thrill of sky and sparkle,

Sailing side by side, I’m so alive.


Oh how I love skiing, a whirlwind I can’t stop.

I’m going higher and higher, the view I have to see.

Every time I ski I feel alive,

On the way to pure delight.
