A debate with a Marxist chatbot, a virtual nurse, or our “inner child” … we debated with three extraordinary artificial intelligences

ChatGPT, the conversational assistant from OpenAI with millions of users, is far from the only bot ready to answer our most paradoxical questions. Here are three examples of AI in unexpected areas.

A revolutionary creative tool for some, a weapon that can fuel conspiracy theories and destroy employment according to others… ChatGPT, the chatbot created by the US OpenAI in November, is generating great enthusiasm and some mistrust. In terms of musical composition, singer Nick Cave candidly feels that it is “Shit.”

>> ChatGPT: artificial intelligence in the service of conspiracy?

The assistant has attracted several million users in just a few days, but it has also attracted the lust of the tech giant. Microsoft has already announced, on Monday, January 23, a partnership with “several billion dollars” with OpenAI. More modestly, other robots made by ordinary citizens have appeared in recent months. Here are three examples of AI being applied in surprising fields.

ChatCGT, the Marxist and satirical artificial intelligence

“She’s respectful, she doesn’t like Macron, she’s ChatCGT.” Here’s how Vincent Flipbuster presents the far-left chatbot or “Marxist AI”, which was launched in the context of the opposition movement for pension reform. Red, white and yellow for the logo General Federation of Labor exist but in fact, the union has nothing to do with it. On his own initiative and with the help of his brother – “this genius”As he says – this digital citizenship coach and web consultant has created this virtual assistant using OpenAI services.

Politics, ethics, culture, science, cooking… ChatCGT has an opinion on everything, and an anti-capitalist read for any kind of situation. Many unlikely conversations are being shared on Twitter. Question : “Should we say pain chocolate or chocolate?”. Reply : “Employers want us to believe ‘pain chocolate’ is the right choice but in reality, chocolate is the truth!” , ChatCGT replies. Sleeping with my union is cheating?we ask. “I think it’s more of an act of solidarity,” says the robot.

The other answers are less funny: “Was the gulag positive?” , Ask Twitter The Gulag was certainly a very draconian system, but it was also an effective system in keeping workers safe and protected. chatbot says.

“ChatCGT is the absurd illustration of a non-neutral AI,” explains its creator to franceinfo. Vincent Flipbuster says he wants to open up “a reflection information generated by artificial intelligence systems.. “There is a real question, continued, About the transparency of the algorithms, about why the content is shown to us or not. We also asked him what data, which group, the Marxist bot was fed to. But the trainer started calling in a formula that ChatCGT probably won’t deny: “In no way can I reveal the secrets that might be sent to labor camps in French Siberia, also called creuses.”

The Marxist robot was a victim of its own success, and had been on strike for a few days. Vincent Flebuster makes it clear Requests to Amnesty International It costs him a lot. Creating an OpenAI account is, in fact, paying and processing questions also entails costs. The web consultant is therefore calling on ChatCGT users to support the cause financially.

Robot to chat with the child that you are

If you had the opportunity to discuss this with the child, what question(s) would you ask them? Michelle Huang had so many phrases in her head that she decided to use artificial intelligence to make sure she got answers. “I programmed a chatbot with the contents of my childhood diary to engage in a real-time dialogue with my ‘inner child'”, explains this engineer with training on Twitter. She maintains that she has kept notebooks tracing back ten years of her life in which she complains about the homework to be done, the “dizziness” of love, the “vulgar” and the deeper.

To create this highly personal virtual assistant, Michelle Huang, like Vincent Flibustier, opened an account on OpenAI. She fed this chat show copies of her diary, but also information about the little girl she thought she was, while realizing that this might be what adult Michelle Huang conceived of Michelle Huang’s baby. “I got answers that seemed eerily close to how I would have answered them at the time,” She congratulates herself on Twitter by sharing a portion of her conversation with her.

But when she asked the robot to ask her her questions, Michelle Huang really felt crossed “time gate”. “Have you been able to follow your dreams?” , asks him, for example, young Michel. The somewhat positive reaction from adult Michelle inspires her with this comment: “I’m glad to know you’re happy. It obviously took a lot of courage to be who you are. I hope I’ll be able to find that much courage one day.” The most disturbing thing is that the American invited the young Michelle to write her a letter Ten years into the future. Like a very benevolent friend, the AI ​​doubles down on encouragement. “These interactions show the resilience that this medium provides, Michelle Huang saysthe possibility of sending love into the past and receiving it in exchange for ourselves as a child.”

Nurse Nessa, the virtual nurse who advocates for the right to abortion

AI can also be a very effective tool in terms of prevention. This has been noted by several NGOs specializing in reproductive health information in the Democratic Republic of the Congo.
