We shouldnt anthropomorphise but people trying to monopolise the word "know" is ridiculous.... obviously it is not abstracting and visualising the individual concepts and stringing them together with language... but it knows that language object A and language object B are linked and it learned that by scanning its environment, the data it was given for training.

Saying that is sufficiently different from a person learning a word by, you guessed it, scanning the environment for links, that you cannot use the word "know" is pedantic and so stupid.

Not sure if there is an ad hominem attack in there. And if there is, I'm not sure whom it addresses.

ok but do you think that, semantically, an AI can know stuff or only "know" stuff.

Wow, I'm going to take a pass on answering. I have typed, backspaced, and re-typed my thoughts three or four times and can't come up with a reasonable definition of know vs. "know".

Even the Turing Test of intelligent behavior didn't bail me out. I don't feel qualified to venture beyond opinion as to whether the one AI I have played with, chatGPT, would truly pass the test. And whatever I have done, it is not a true Turing Test as I am not comparing chatGPT's answers to a human's answers and trying to discern the difference.
