Authors Relax – Artificial Intelligence is Not Ready to Replace You

Artificial intelligence is used in many ways today. It is used to provide personalized recommendations to people based on their previous searches and purchases or other online behavior1. It is also used in web searches, digital personal assistants, machine translations, smart homes, cities and infrastructure, and fighting disinformation. AI is also used in facial recognition technology, spam detection, credit card fraud detection, and more.[1]

You can use CPT-3 to write books. The rise of widely available, easy-to-use artificial intelligence tools is creating a new genre of robot-generated literature. Amazon already offers over 200 books (and climbing) with GPT-3 listed as an author or co-author.

GPT-3 is a machine learning model and not a substitute for your own creativity and writing skills. GPT-3 can provide you with a lot of information and inspiration that you can use to write your book.[2]

If you’re supposed to write a summary for school or work on a body of text, AI chatbots like GPT-3 can be used to make summarizing long articles, research papers, and books an easier task.

It is not possible to cite your sources with GPT-3. You can create citations, but it isn’t designed for this task and it tends to make up sources that don’t exist or present information in the wrong format. GPT-3 also cannot add citations to direct quotes in your text. If you’re looking for a more reliable source for your research, I would recommend using a database or search engine that specializes in academic sources such as Google Scholar or JSTOR.[3]

Here are some tips on how to write effective GPT-3 prompts12:

  • Start with a clear goal of what you want the output to accomplish.
  • Keep it simple and concise.
  • Use keywords strategically.
  • Provide ample context.
  • Use examples when possible.

GPT-3 can be used to write blogs. However, it is important to note that GPT-3 is not at a point where you can click a button and magically have a great blog post. It is also important to keep in mind that the content generated by GPT-3 may not always be accurate or reliable.[4]

Historians can use GPT-3 to generate summaries of historical events or write articles about historical figures. However, it is important to keep in mind that the content generated by GPT-3 may not always be accurate or reliable.[5]

CPT-3 is an AI language model that can generate human-like text. It is designed to generate text that is similar to human writing. Wikipedia is a free online encyclopedia that anyone can edit. It contains articles on almost every topic and is written by volunteers from around the world.

While CPT-3 can generate text on any topic, it may not always be accurate or reliable. Wikipedia articles are written by volunteers who may not be experts in the field, but they are usually reviewed by other editors and are often based on reliable sources.[6]

I wrote this blog using CPT-3 as offered by Microsoft Bing.  The questions I asked are shown below. One of the most used responses to my questions was CPT-3 “may not always be accurate or reliable.” That seems a very bad start for any non-fiction writing. I also didn’t like that “it is not possible to cite your sources with GPT-3.”

So for now, this author will not jump into the AI pool.
