Futurizonte Editor’s Note: If ChatGPT is the end of education, jobs, and religion is because we, humans, allow it, either because of inability keep our jobs and beliefs, or our inability to move to new jobs and beliefs.
From the article:
The New York Times called it “the best artificial intelligence chatbot ever released to the general public.” The Atlantic called it “the generative-AI eruption” that “may change our mind about how we work, how we think, and what human creativity really is.”
A high school teacher called it “the end of high school English.” A New York rabbi saw it as the higher power that gave him his latest sermon. The Who might say this about it:
If you haven’t figured “it” out yet, “it” is ChatGPT (Chat Generative Pre-trained Transformer), the chatbot from OpenAI which in just three months has some people hailing it as the most human text-to-speech AI app ever, while others fear it is the end of education, jobs, and perhaps even religion.
Released as a free program by OpenAI in November 2022 as part of its GPT-3 family of large language models, ChatGPT was immediately picked up by the general public which marveled at its ability to quickly proved detailed responses and coherent answers across many domains of knowledge with what seemed to be pinpoint accuracy.
As is the case with so much new technology, Chat GPT was speedily applied for nefarious purposes: generating fake resumes, phishing and scamming, writing fake articles and term papers, fooling dating apps, writing erotica and even creating malware.
To the relief of many, its factual accuracy is often not that great … yet. However, it is clear ChatGPT could be on its way to becoming the new writer, new help desk worker, new boss … and perhaps even a new god. Can the congregation be fooled?

By approaching them with openness and vulnerability, he is able to heal old wounds and to create deeper, more meaningful bonds with his siblings.”Part of a sermon written by ChatGPT
