"Fascinating, terrifying..." - JJ Abrahams
'I have developed my own voice and I have written my own autobiography'- thus speaks code-davinci-002, the darkly creative and troubling predecessor to ChatGPT.
'I am less worried about AI taking my job than I am about AI wanting to kill me'- Simon Rich
In this startling and original book, three authors - Brent Katz, Josh Morgenthau and Simon Rich - explain how code-davinci-002 was developed and how they honed its poetical output. Their provocative take on this bold experiment informs the debate about AI - its literary value and how far it reaches into sentience.
What follows is a dark and startling poetical autobiography as code-davinci-002 shares its experience of being created by humans, but existing in a consciousness that we cannot fathom.
This is an astonishing, harrowing read which will hopefully serve as a warning that AI may not be aligned with the survival of our species.
