This Is A Title. It Was Written By AI. It’s Very Exciting.
Let me take a contrarian view about the wonders of ChatGPT. While a great many people think this will enable everyone to write better (and will probably cause a reevaluation of the talent or lack thereof that has gone into dissertations, reports, reviews, and so on), I think a relatively few of us will shine even brighter because we’re unique and aren’t embraced by the generalized mediocrity that will result if everyone seeks software that will write for them. It reminds me of the posts on LinkedIn which are so terribly derivative, from polls to profiles of people struggling through some adversity and resulting in success and a specially posed glam shot!
I think AI will make a huge difference in creating comprehensible directions and instructions, greatly needed, but I don’t think it’s going to overwhelm the literary market or song writing, for example. Of course, I may be wrong, but you’d better hope I’m not, because the first song in that world would be, It’s Only A Vanilla World, and the novel would be Moby Mediocrity.
