The tech industry’s latest artificial intelligence constructs can be quite compelling if you ask them what it’s like to be a sentient computer, or maybe just a dinosaur or a squirrel. But they’re not so good – and sometimes dangerously bad – at handling other seemingly simple tasks.
Take, for example, GPT-3, a Microsoft-controlled system that can generate paragraphs of human-like text based on what it has learned from a large database of e-books and writings in line. It is considered one of the most advanced of a new generation of AI algorithms capable of conversing, generating readable text on demand and even producing new images and videos.
