Are we witnessing ChatGPT literally take the place of writers? Posted on May 6, 2023 by Anonymous Are we witnessing ChatGPT literally take the place of writers?
Keep your culture war spam on BOT, please.
How is this culture war? Its writers on strike because they want better working conditions.
The average BOT poster doesn't care about the writers striking as they hate modern movies/tv out of principle anyways. They just see it as yet an another "my team vs. their team" thing.
Figured. This is the third dumbest board after all.
American writing has been shit for decades, those gay childless teens can't write a relatable story for shit. I don't see why big cinema doesn't just outsource writing to Korea or Japan or something like everything else. Probably cheaper and would get people back to the movies.
Just keep dei, cei, esg, sdg out of it problem solved
you obviously have not seen japanese movies. Korean movies can be good, but japanese movies these days are just humans acting like anime characters and it comes off really oddly.
no, the writers strike has nothing to do with AI and if you think shitass TV would be better with AI writers you're literally insane
what are you trying to say?
If you write generic listicles where half the page is taken up by tweets or images, yeah. ChatGPT can spit out an equivalent or better quality 300-word article way faster and cheaper than you.
If you mean actual creative writing that includes development of novel concepts and genuinely captivating narratives? Not for a long time, transformer-based models don't actually "understand" concepts; Their training relies on reducing error so they end up creating predictable results, since unpredictability is seen as a negative trait.
>so they end up creating predictable results
So the current writing quality coming out of 75% of all media today. So really only 75% of writers should be worried... Or whatever % you want to say. 75% of current media is written like predictable shit to me.
>75% of current media is written like predictable shit to me
Try 98% of what's available to the international public. Some of that % is amusing regardless but that doesn't mean it isn't predictable.
I asked GPT-4 to write me an original movie idea that no human could ever come up with and it's actually a pretty amazing idea. I wish I had the necessary skills to actually make the movie though. Keeping it to myself though just in case.
Tell me, i wont tell anyone
Look in your dms
i saw shapiro's tweet where he claims that using as example a scene from a comedy written by chatgpt
and i immediately thought about how I've listened to him saying that he read like a book per week or something like that, and how was it possible that he thought that that specific chatgpt script was good writing
yeah, there are bad screenwriters that write shit, but there are also good writers. however there's only one chatgpt and is already doing its best, there is not a good/bad toggle, that's what it can do.
and don't even come with 'but next model with a gazillion parameters', altman already said that they hit a block with improving via larger and larger datasets.
Every time they do one of these writers strikes (every 5 years or so) it just shows the world that all of their favorite propaganda is written by fat women, gays, chuds, and garden gnomes. You would think they would notice, but they don't.
They did it to themselves. They were writing like AI before AI was cool.
no they're being fucking retarded baby duck luddites and demanding something be banned because it hurts their feelings
abolish intellectual property like the 1800s relic it is and 100% of their bitching is negated
Big company writers that are just glorified factory workers producing highly filtered, company-approved shit? Yes.
Writers that actually put effort, personal experience, their own artistic sensibility and are writing what they want to write? No robot can replace them.
AI has literally nothing to do with this strike. It's be cool if it was, though.
