From our head stories writer
I have been waiting for this email for a long time, and I'm very happy to have received it. It's a small, but important victory of humanity over the machine.
Really well said. My sense is that we’re just scratching the surface of something really incredible, with the potential to do so much good for the world... but I’m not sure how to be human in a world where creative and intellectual work is done more efficiently and effectively by non-humans. All this has been difficult to process, but your post gives me a feeling of hope. Thank you.
Well said. It seems as if the release of ChatGPT was a catalyst to release hundreds of other AI-powered tools on to the market. As much as I do not like how quickly AI is advancing in disrupting societies, I want to be as prepared as possible for what is to come. God speed.
Best of luck to you. While I have enjoyed reading the works created here, I do not wish to see a day where humans have no more place in the world of writing.
Admirable post, Celeste, and warmly received.
It is the spirit that dwells between and in the wood of words that makes the path of reading worthwhile. The wind that is the breath of the author whispering subtext around the plot. AI is predictable, because it is predicting. Connect it to a real source of randomness, like the hot cup of coffee in the Heart of Gold in The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. That is what life is, a quantum soup spooned into a medium like body that channels a God that serves as a container for our small minds circumference. You cannot do that with AI, just like you cannot read this without thinking "who am I" and for a moment having lost yourself in me. Amen.
Here's to seeing more people walk away from the greatest grift of all time.
