So what will our societies look like after the coronavirus/COVID-19 pandemic when artificial intelligence (AI) is everywhere?
Expect more #techlash when more and of the non tech oriented population understands their life is ruled and ruined by algorithms largely based on profiteering. Additionally enhancing people’s often faulty preferences with recommender systems or looking for conflict and “engaging” subjects like FB will further polarise societies.
Brexit is stupid. Avoid no deal Brexit! is AI generated text that shows how screwed up the Brexit debate is. The AI generates the text by putting sentences together it found in the text that it parameters or features were trained on. I used OpenGPT on a local Jupyter notebook to generate the below text. One could of course also use the Google Colab mentioned in the Medium article to generate text. Overall it seems if the world does not agree on a topic, AI generated text will be diffuse as well and can not hold an argument.
The results of OpenGPT-2 vs GPT are shown in the next image.
This also shows how Brexit will be a disaster as it split the UK in religious factions that threaten world stability and world trade.
