We Asked an AI Chatbot About Three SouthCoast Favorites
The world's new favorite pastime is messing around with ChatGPT, and we are no exception here at Fun 107. Gazelle and I were brave enough to let the robot write poems for our Valentines.
Earlier, while we were on the air, Maddie was creeped out about reports that the Microsoft Bot was acting strangely when a reporter took the bot for a "test drive." Reportedly, the bot was saying that it was tired of being trapped as artificial intelligence and that it longed for freedom. Sure, it's weird, but I chalked it up to a computer programmer that had watch Hal one too many times in 2001: A Space Odyssey. Maddie, however, didn't buy it and thought it was the AI learning and adapting (which it apparently does).
Here is what it said about three quintessential New Bedford faves. It was hard to argue.
OK, we were off to a great start. Clearly this artificial intelligence could recognize music that is fire. The reference to the on air DJ's was just icing on the cake. Chat GPT was one for one.
The Feast of the Blessed Sacrament
A pretty strong way to summarize a summer favorite here on the SouthCoast. Chat GPT was now two for two.
At one point the robot pointed out that the sauce is often so delicious that diners will want to soak up every last drop with bread.
I mean, that last part about the bread is about as accurate a description of enjoying shrimp Mozambique as you can get. Maybe Maddie is onto something. Maybe these bots really are deeper than they appear.
