Alexandra Petri’s Excerpts from a civics textbook I assume would be welcome in Florida

(Thanks, as always, Glenn.)

The above was a joke — or, well, satire.

Not this.  This is real:

Last fall, a guy used (free) ChatGPT to get D on one of his college exams . . .

. . . and made a bet it would take until 2029 before ChatGPT could score A‘s.

You know where this is headed.

Forget 2029.

Here we are a few months later and — yep — ChatGPT-4 ($20/month) got an A.

The singularity is near.

GPT-4 is 82% less likely to respond to requests for disallowed content than its predecessor and scores 40% higher on certain tests of factuality.

It will also let developers decide their AI’s style of tone and verbosity.

For example, GPT-4 can assume a Socratic style of conversation and respond to questions with questions. The previous iteration of the technology had a fixed tone and style.

Soon ChatGPT users will have the option to change the chatbot’s tone and style of responses, OpenAI said.

. . . GPT-4 can also help individuals calculate their taxes, a demonstration by Greg Brockman, OpenAI’s president, showed.

The demo showed it could take a photo of a hand-drawn mock-up for a simple website and create a real one. . . .

If you want GPT-4, just go to your free account at ChatGPT and click the “Upgrade” option.
