Why is it a step in The right direction?

Because it provides value. It generates answers for questions that can require a more extensive due dilligence. Instead of a human scouring the internet for answers it can directly and comprehensively answer the question in the context is asked with explanations. For instance, software developers are using it by being recommended actual implementations in code that actually works, solving problems much faster and being more productive.

Edit: I want to add that the answers are very specific to the problem stated by the user. ChatGPT does not provides a general answer but a very specific answer for the problem at hand.

Fair enough. I can see that being useful once all the kinks are worked out.

Customer service roles across the board. It frees up time for workers to handle more important/critical thinking tastes vs. simple customer service based ones. It's a fantastic tool to bounce ideas off of, cultivating a person's/staffs creativity. It's also brilliant at taking information and writing articles/inquiries.

Regulation will be needed, but overall it's a netgain.

Yeah, well when I start reading schools are considering not having written assignments anymore that worries me. People need to learn how to do things like that and think for themselves.

Understandable, and like I said regulation is going to be needed. But ask yourself this? Kids curriculum nowadays (USA) is test based and has little critical thinking involved. The fact a fledgling AI can pass as a high school student is an issue, but is it an AI problem or an issue how our schools operate/teach?

Also, software to recognize AI generated content is already being made and I'm sure schools will implement a submit system that verifies their students work.

Yeah I hear that. They have my kid memorizing spellings and definitions of words. He gets an A on every test. Then forgets all of it a few weeks later

It's all above my pay grade and I don't envy you as a parent in today's climate, but I'm sure your little ones gonna be alright :)

Hell, remember cursive? 🤣

I still write in pseudocursive to this day, and, while people say it's pretty, its also a bitch to read.

You should try and learn architectural print. I was also cursive but switched in uni and it’s more legible and I write just as fast.

I remember it but I don't remember why I had to learn it.

Memorisation and spelling are good. It wasn’t long ago people were saying autocorrect meant you didn’t need to learn spelling which is basically the same thing as this atm but for longer form writing.

Memorisation and spelling without putting into practice ie writing essays and reports and fiction, is bad because as you say people just forget it if they don’t use it.

I wouldn't be so sure. As soon as an algorithm is created to detect AI content that exact same model can and will be used to further train the neural network to avoid detection. This is the basic premise behind generative adversarial networks (or GANs,) one of the bigger ML techniques.

And it will catch false positives and people will be punished for having done nothing.
