For all you busy people out there, here's the gist of the episode condensed into a 5 minute read! You're welcome.

1. ChatGPT and its Capabilities

– Data Science, AI, and Machine Learning have become popular in the commercial area in the last five years.
– ChatGPT is an advanced language processor that understands human-like language and is able to link its knowledge base with the internet to provide answers to human queries.
– Eric has tried some AI tools before, such as those that create art and bad songs, but none has impressed him as much as ChatGPT.
– ChatGPT finds the best answer it can find on the internet. However, it does not verify its accuracy or attempt to calculate a solution.
– ChatGPT’s capability to link human language and AI is also why some people find it scary.
– The program can detect emotions conveyed through written language and respond accordingly.
– If AI can create original jokes that capture the imperfections and surprises of human life, it would be considered true creativity.
– Currently, AI jokes are often plagiarized from the internet.


2. AI in Everyday Life

– AI is going to replace many of our tasks slowly.
– GPT (AI language model) can already replace some repetitive tasks, such as customer support that relies on phone calls.
– The current chatbots are annoying and don’t understand what the user wants.
– Bank receptionists, customer support, and lower level lawyers and doctors can be replaced by GPT, for simple tasks that don’t require much discussion or debates.
– Although AI has made significant advancements, certain jobs like doctors cannot be fully replaced due to other factors.


3. AI in Gaming

– Difficulty settings on computer games are not true AI settings, but rather handicapped levels that reduce player abilities or make it easier for the character to die.
– In the future, complete games could be designed so that the AI learns the player’s moves and makes the game harder by countering their strategies.
– Uncertainty about whether this is a positive or negative development, as AI may outperform humans in the game.


4. Risks of AI

– The COVID-19 pandemic has shown that although knowledge is free-flowing with the internet, there is also a lot of fake news and inconsistent information being spread.
– With the addition of fake news AI that can produce realistic pictures and videos, it is becoming harder to differentiate between what is real and what is not.
– The ability to manipulate information could lead to manipulation of events in the world, which is a scary thought.
– The potential for fake news AI to generate entire news channels based on fake news is a worrying trend.
– However, Shin believes that fears about AI taking over the world are unfounded, as this idea has been present since the 1950s and is unlikely to happen.


5. AI Ethics

– AI is becoming smarter and can potentially know everything about data we feed it.
– Ethics surrounding AI are becoming more important, particularly in areas like self-driving cars.
– Responsibility for any negative outcomes of AI is difficult to resolve and needs to be considered.
– AI ethics will become a key topic in the next few years as AI becomes more mainstream.
