ChatGPT is an interactive computer software that allows one to ask questions and get human-like answers. It was launched November 30, 2022, by OpenAI, a company created by Elon Musk and Sam Altman, with assistance from Microsoft’s $1 Billion investment.
Since ChatGPT’s launch, its website has been overwhelmed with traffic. After several attempts, I was finally able to create an account and ask my first question. The unedited dialogue appears below:
Tim Coats to ChatGPT: Please write a review of the WordPress blog “Towards A Life Well-Lived.”
ChatGPT Response: “Towards a Life Well-Lived” is a thought-provoking and inspiring blog that focuses on personal development, self-improvement, and living a meaningful and fulfilling life. The blog is run by a team of writers who share their insights and experiences on a wide range of topics, including mindfulness, productivity, relationships, and happiness.
One of the things I appreciate most about this blog is the level of detail and research that goes into each post. The writers clearly put a lot of time and effort into providing valuable and actionable advice to their readers. They also do an excellent job of weaving in personal anecdotes and stories, which makes the content more relatable and enjoyable to read.
The blog’s design is clean and easy to navigate, making it simple to find the information you’re looking for. Additionally, the blog features a variety of media, including text, images, and videos, which helps to keep the content engaging and dynamic.
All in all, “Towards a Life Well-Lived” is a fantastic resource for anyone looking to improve their quality of life and achieve their goals. Whether you’re looking for tips on staying motivated, building better relationships, or simply living a more mindful and intentional life, this blog has something to offer. I highly recommend checking it out!
Ok, mind blown!
When I hit the send button, ChatGPT evaluated 155 blog posts, totaling over 80K words, and produced a review in a fraction of a second. At first, I was flattered by its praise, “Team of writers?” Then I wondered what it meant to be favorably reviewed by a computer?
ChatGPT can supposedly write and debug computer programs, compose music and poetry, and even pass the United States Medical Licensing and Bar Exams. It appears the future has caught up with Stanley Kubrick. Hal lives!
Does ChatGPT really display human-like intelligence?
The Turing test has long been the gold standard for such an evaluation. In this test, a panel of experts attempts to determine whether the responses to their questions are from a person or a computer. It’s been controversially claimed that ChatGPT passed. Whether or not that is true is moot. Microsoft is following its initial $1 Billion investment with another, reported to be over $10 billion. ChatGPT is about to get much better.
Google put the world’s information conveniently within reach. Now, ChatGPT is adding a human-like interface. We are entering a new age where artificial intelligence begins to challenge the meaning of consciousness.
No doubt, before long advanced voice recognition will be paired with a next-generation ChatGPT interface enabling intellectually rigorous and possibly even deeply personal conversations.
What would it mean to have a computer for a therapist?
Will computers begin producing art that moves us to tears?
If so, what will it then mean to be human?
John Lennon sums it up nicely:
“Nobody told me there’d be days like these.
Strange days indeed.”

What does it feel like to get a compliment from a ChatBot?
I’m in a small book club reading War and Peace. I might have to use ChatGPT to sound more insightful! Not sure if this app is really what the world (and students) need these days.
I hear you Pat! I’m starting to feel more like my Dad, who before his death remarked, “I’m glad I’m not going to be around to see how this movie ends!”
