In a world where AI generated responses are credible, how will PF’s role need to change?
PF will need to continue to evolve
From the PF mission statement, PF's role is:What do you think PF's role should be?
Good point. The entire archive of PF threads must be available to the bots. The loop would be closed if we start getting questions about bot answers that were built partially on our own past answers. That kind of recursion gives me a headache.But ChatGPT works by synthesizing good answers from information it gathers out on the web, so it needs some source of good information to build on
Are there enough textbooks to constitute a proper training set using current/near future AI’s?It would be a positive thing if the bots were given access to the best textbooks,
Maybe not. That's an excellent question. But suppose the question was highly specific, asking about quantum erasure. Only a tiny percent of the world's literature will discuss that, and billions of articles about romance won't contribute to the correct answer, so broadening the scope at the same time as increasing the size of the training set may not improve performance on narrow questions.Are there enough textbooks to constitute a proper training set using current/near future AI’s?
