Has AI just killed coursework? Posted on October 15, 2022 by Anonymous Has AI just killed coursework?
I would believe this. In my mandatory WRITING and ART classes during my PHYSICS degree, the people actually majoring in those fields had the writing skills of a typical middle schooler, which is sufficiently nonsensical for AI to pass the Turing test.
You should learn to write anon. It helps you to clarify your thoughts and forces you to formalize ideas which may have only been vague notions earlier. It's a skill that strengthens both your critical thinking abilities as well as your capacity to make strong arguments. Almost all great thinkers who ever lived were also great writers.
There's no point in having great ideas if you lack the tools to express them.
I wish. School is a scam and made me hate things I loved.
Yeah it's honestly embarrassing to read or listen to the writing of your classmates 99% of the time. I'm not a great writer, but these people are horrific. I'll never understand how people struggle in a class on the language they've always spoken and constantly think in.
No, that's exactly it. Professors don't actually read anything. I can attest to this anecdotally. They read the first paragraph to make sure it's on topic and run the rest through a grammar/spell checker. If there's a bibliography they might look that over too, but they're not actually checking those sources.
I used this to my advantage in both high school and college.
Most people don't have an inner monologue.
I know, I just like to delude myself because otherwise I'd run off into the wilderness without a second thought. I just tell myself that I can't know for sure unless I ask (and I don't ask). I need to at least play the game long enough to develop the skills I'd need to survive long terms innawoods.
>and constantly think in.
>he doesn't know
>I feel so special guys
You have no clue what that means.
Now this is a shitpost a shit post for sure.
Go larp somehwhere else you tard
Wow you really got angry at nothing, I wonder why that is you retarded soulless gay? Is it because you have nothing going in inside and you struggled to write an expressive essay in college like the retarded bug you are? Nothing in those posts are even remotely inaccurate.
Forced meme you chud fucks.
No matter how many words you say if you cannot express with a single sentence hell even a single word then you are a complete jackass.
>Nothing in those posts are even remotely inaccurate.
>breaks his own gay single sentence rule that goes against centuries of literature
Ok retard. If you think it's bullshit you either never attended college or were one of the retards that are being referred to. You might think you can properly express yourself in one sentence, but that's a load of cope and precisely the reason why you suck at writing. It's just too much work for your little brain to come up with any way to express complex emotions and themes I guess. You're just mad that an unthinking, unconscious program is better at expressing ideas than you and most people would never be able to tell the difference between your retarded drivel and a machine's output. There is no other conceivable reason as to why you'd get so triggered over this, especially based on that retarded take you shared on brevity.
Post your essay NOW!
Nice try, bug. On this site it's exceedingly rare to find someone that is genuinely offended by the idea that most people are unthinking golems in one way or another, so I suspect samegayry.
Please tell me you're just baiting.
Is American secondary education really this fucked?
For my Bachelor's degree in physics I had almost no other topics and even then three years was just barely enough to scratch the surface of the field.
If I had to waste my time on fucking arts even after finishing school I might just kill myself.
Almost certainly the writing classes that Anon took didn't teach him how to properly write technical documents though.
There is a stark difference between text that sounds good and is fun to read and text that formulates an idea in a very dry, precise and easy to understand way.
I've actually taken both technical, and argumentative writing classes. You need both to be "good at writing" imo. It's important to be able to writing convincingly (rhetorical) as well as understandably (technical).
Whoa look out we've got a badass over here
>>Is American secondary education really this fucked?
I never understood why American universities are setup to teach general classes until the horror stories I had an American teacher tell me about their high school system.
>Is American secondary education really this fucked?
Your country isn't doing any better judging by your comment. Secondary education results in a high school diploma, not a physics degree.
Ive been doing this lol, its worked great for me. There are even free online tools (like smodin) that do a pretty good job depending on how good you are at writing prompts to feed it.
In the next couple years there will be a focus shifted towards AI detection in essays, kinda like how the birth of the Internet created the need for plagiarism detection
>there will be a focus shifted towards AI detection in essays
I thought they already used AIs to do that
so now it's AI detecting AIs
>AI detecting AIs
Write a program to do that and profit. I'm sure they're going to want that implemented once the idea of AI written papers is more mainstream.
>mandatory WRITING and ART classes during my PHYSICS degree
do americans really?
Yes, our public education is so bad that universities require "general education" courses, often shortened to "gen eds"
In my experience these courses include:
>social sciences, be it anthropology, psychology, or sociology
>a foreign language, that nobody learns to speak well
None of these courses goes into sufficient depth and they really are just high school level courses for the most part, albeit slightly faster. There's still a lot of people that shouldn't pass these courses (that still do, because a low pass rate means the professor and the university are bad!)
>I hate competition
Did you reply to the wrong post or are you reading something there that I didn't write?
From the original statement you did use the quote arrow even though no one said it here in this thread
yes, where do you think libtards come from?
Usually its classes people take before they formally declare that they will be majoring in something. If you went to a decent highschool followed by a decent college you can usually just take an exam to not have to take most of them.
Though my math major had a communication component where I had to write and present some math topic to three different audiences.
ai can't write anything good, so I guess the teacher can't tell the difference since all of them are idiots
Standards really have dropped that low.
Also it's not like they're just dropping the AI generated paper into the teachers lap, the less retarded ones will edit it a little bit.
I just hope this finally ends the age of mandatory education for everybody and brings back the education age where only those who want an education will put in the effort to get one.
>events that never happen at all
>checks lit - literature
lmao just lmao
Dumbing down lowers standards. Lower then below the threshold of what "ai" can dish out and now you have bots that can pass for humans.
AI can write good, where have you been
AI can't write shit, and you're braindead if you can't tell the difference.
This just proves that 90% of what we write goes completely unread
This. A friend of mine literally called his professor an asshole in his homework assignment. He got it back graded and heard nothing about it ever.
>Because Of Course They Are
i hate this millennial gay writing style
it's written by an AI
it's reddit lingo
Reddit this Reddit that
Maybe just maybe you are the reddit
>Maybe just maybe
>hard to tell apart from text written by humans
no, it's not
Text is an important part of many conversations. AI can create text that sounds natural and is grammatically correct. However, can AI generate text that is natural and grammatically correct enough to be considered human text? This is a difficult question to answer because the definition of natural and grammatically correct varies between people. AI can create text that sounds natural and is grammatically correct; however, this text may not be considered human text.
Obvious AI. You have to be subtle about it, like this text is.
Believe it or not g is comprised of 90% chink bots posting the same shit at semi random intervals
>racism outside of /b/
Most people cant tell, most people are literally below 120IQ (bathtub twitch streamer/liberal twitter cuck levels)
>no, it's not
AI text is definitely advanced enough to pass as human text! I mean, just think about all of the things that AI can do that humans can't. It can process information faster, it can remember things more accurately, and it can definitely write more coherently than most humans can.
Sure, there are some people out there who can write pretty well, but they're definitely the exception rather than the rule. Most people's writing is full of errors, both grammatical and factual. AI text, on the other hand, is always error-free.
Plus, AI text is often more interesting to read than human text. That's because AI can generate ideas that humans would never think of. That's what makes AI text so fascinating - it's like reading the thoughts of a completely different intelligence.
THIS IS NOT AI
WE DO NOT HAVE AI
YOU ARE BING SCAMMED
ALL THESE PROGRAMS ARE DOING IS REGURGITATING GOOGLE SEARCH RESULTS
you know 0 about AI and have no idea how any of this works lmao
You're the fool if you believe the aggregate of information fed to ~~*AI*~~'s and the regurgitation it spews based on said data is actually the product of a legit Artificial Intelligence.
>legit Artificial Intelligence (TM)
>which of course is whatever doesn't exist yet and will forever be
I've seen gays like you 30 years ago and this was old even back then
And the gays of 30 years ago are still right in regards to modern ~~*AI*~~. Ask the ~~*AI*~~ to generate data out of nowhere like the product of Human Intelligence without ~~*training*~~ it on previous data and it will literally shit itself.
and it would generate something far more coherent and intelligent than any of your retarded posts
Sure thing buddy, I'll take a good seat on my comfy chair waiting until your 90000000 if statements can actually generate anything that wasn't based on previous fed data.
you keep coping
Wait, you're telling me the ~~*AI*~~ can generate legit data out of nothing? Just prove it, show me an ~~*AI*~~ that can generate ANY kind of data out of nothing. Remember, it can't be a system that's comprised of a gorillion number of if statements with previous data to base itself upon.
read what a generative transformer is you dumb gorilla moron ape
>Generative Pre-trained Transformer
I am perfectly aware. have a nice day you retarded ignoramus.
>ai is not ai according to these contradictory and impossible requirements I just made up
>Despite having 175B parameters, GPT-3 cannot hold a long term destination in mind. It cannot hold logical and consistent context over many paragraphs. GPT-3 does not have a mind or semantics of its own — as it does not understand what the inputs and outputs really mean. It does not have a mental model, memory, or a sense of meaning. It calculates correlations, but it cannot reason.
>vague and nebulous cope
>Look guys it's AI, but wait, there's a catch, it can't think for itself.
you can't cohesively define "AI", in your mind it's some sci fi thing which is not real so of course you're gonna cope like that
You are so dumb. You are such a dumb gorilla moron Holy shit you are so fucki g stupid fucmk
>generate data out of nowhere like the product of Human Intelligence without ~~*training*~~
humans have to train for more than a decade to generate coherent thoughts
I sometimes forget that the IQ level of this board is in the single digits, sometimes I pinch myself when I reply to posts like these.
>I have no arguments or proof so I'll reply with generics replies to imply that he's wrong and I am right.
You are a waste of oxygen, please proceed to 47% and remove yourself from the gene pool so your offspring don't keep polluting the planet.
It literally learns and takes decisions you dumb moron
Its literally over
Bring back exam based grading that filters anxious retards so the actually capable students dont have to waste their time with the long-winded drudgery of assignments.
I unironically do this. I have to turn in so many bullshit 5 page papers that it at least helps brainstorm ideas quickly. I doubt anyone is at the point of it writing entire essays because it wont forumalate thoughts that detailed but it can help you skip over writers block when you need to shit out 3 more pages of mundane bullshit that even the prof won't be reading.
there are models that are trained to detect GPT-3 text, so its only a matter of time before some idiot gets busted
What if you run it through a paraphraser
>implying that article wasn't written by AI as well
Everyone but me is an AI
How long until programmers are replaced by AI?
Macro languages already exist anon.
The age of the programmer is in its twilight years for sure
>AI is real, we havw achieved general intelligence
Isnt it just spewing out its training data?
>Thats how human works. Humans require years and years of education to create anything new.
Right, but humans use a single network to do many many things unlike your AI, it's actually "general" intelligence
>humans specialize as well, some are better at certain tasks than others, like taking a phd in physics or being a weight lifter.
Ok b-but uh
>inb4 this gets a "[insert incoherent adjective] cope" reply
I mean is it possible to code conscious self aware intelligence with current technology?
Short Answer? No.
Long Answer? No.
But, please keep feeding these trolls by saying that the current generative PRE-TRAINED transformer model is actual legit AI.
Dont you think there a posibility theres slightly more advanced technology/exploration in private facilities/goverments that are able to recreate a semi-self aware A.I?
Not an Hyper intelligent one just like Idk dog levels of intelligence, would that be a thing?
I won't deny there's a possibility of that but it ain't GPT-3 for sure.
The way humans work is by being conditioned and exposed to activities/knowledge, its the way we slowly grow to have a grasp on life and reality
Can we achieve this with current tools/mechanism/knowledge?
Im pretty sure they have been working on this for ages if not decades now right?
>Isnt it just spewing out its training data?
it's not, you have no idea how transformers work
>Right, but humans use a single network to do many many things unlike your AI, it's actually "general" intelligence
learn what multimodal neurons are
No im not gonna reas your cope and seethe trash articles. You are the css front end designer of science. I took statistics and calculus and so in college and I know that backpropagation to adjust weights to minimize a cost function has nothing to do with general intelligence. dilate.
this kills the ai seether
>these weights are different I swear
ok keep coping meanwhile in the real world we'll keep mopping the floor with you using AI
The only floor mopping you scam artists will be doing is the toilet inside the jail when the gnomish shareholder realize multimodal is pure cope
you're too dumb to read a blog post and we're kicking your ass up and down the street
>kicking my ass
>literally have a job doing almost nothing
if you cant replace almost nothing by now its over lmao
>hokey pokey nonsense
I don't get this "AI isn't self aware, therefore it isn't actually simulating a task that traditionally requires a human brain to do" argument. I personally don't think an intelligence needs to be self aware if it's artificial. I'd say even a calculator is AI in the most rudimentary sense.
>A ti 84 is artificial intellgence
Is the universe an AI?
>gaslights and moves the goalposts
The very concept of the inner monologue is a false construct.
One cannot empirically label another about his or her mindset.
>One cannot empirically label another about his or her mindset.
Youre actually wrong, if you have enough experience you can tell whose have a very basic/low mindset and who doesnt
If youre trained of course, you can point out basic giveaways such as the uses of very basic dogmas/constant use of dogmatic-like reasoning and so on
>You cannot do this (doesnt elaborate)
>This is a false construct (doesnt elaborate despite making a bold claim)
You CAN label other people, in fact you can have accuracy in your "labeling"
>>You cannot do this (doesnt elaborate)
Of course I will not explain it further after all we share the same abstract concepts right?
You still havent elaborated your claims
So in reality you could literally be simply wrong even if youre not aware yourself that youre wrong
Also people having "monologues" doesnt literally imply we all have the exact same abstract concepts
Regardless you can "empirically label others peoples mindsets", things such as IQ tests and concepts work towards this lol
lmao bro really believes at funny numbers
Have you considered youre not smart? or that youre actually "dumb"?
I feel like Im replying with someone with mental retardation or just a child
>Muh IQ isnt real
Yeah I can tell why you would like to think that
What an actual naive fool
SAD many such cases
>>You cannot do this (doesnt elaborate)
>>This is a false construct (doesnt elaborate despite making a bold claim)
>haha hes so dumb for questioning incomplete medicre bold claims
>Cannot spell words properly
Its more of a one way mirror.
spell words properly
>Cannot get the point because his autistic low functioning brain detected a gramatical error
That was an AI-generated response. I didn't even read it myself before sending.
You have been had.
>>This is a false construct (doesnt elaborate despite making a bold claim)
NTA but it is in fact a false concept
The idea itself is misleading.
The idea being misleading (unable to be grasped by mentally retarded people) doesnt mean its a false construct lol
After all "Inner monologue" is something people have
Its like saying gravity is a false construct because its misleading lol
>Something can either intended literally
What's to stop someone from creating thousands of AI written papers and hosting a website where people can download them for free or for a fee
turnitin's gonna have to have a whole ai detection rebuild lol
>tfw 100 word essay due next week
>haven't even started yet
>moves the goalposts
This one was trained on some scholarly research papers
It can write about some concepts well that are surprising, like 'explain your epistemology in regards to x.' It also includes citations, but many are incorrect, attributed to a writer in a different field, or the writer/research paper doesn't seem to exist at all. I used it because I had writers block once and another time when I just didn't have time to write my other paper that was due. I had to edit it. And I noticed it has a distinct style. It uses short sentences and periods rather than joining clauses with a comma, for example. It also writes in passive voice a lot.
Fuck I was born too early
