I Taught ChatGPT to Play Overrated/Underrated
It took about three minutes.
I stayed up late last night testing out various applications of OpenAI’s new chat bot with some of my friends. All of you should give it a try.
As I played with it, I became increasingly intrigued. Could the AI do something a little more contextual and sophisticated?
It took a bit of practice with various scenarios to learn how to speak to the bot—you have to be careful to phrase things in a way that doesn’t trigger its tendency to not want to speak for famous figures and it avoids direct questions about potentially inappropriate topics—but once I learned to persist after an initially unsatisfying answer, the results could be quite impressive.
So without further ado, here’s how I managed to teach AI to play Tyler Cowen’s favorite game a few moments ago…
I started with a direct, open-ended request.
Explained a little bit more about how the game is supposed to work and provided a more concrete scenario.
3. Then gave a more concrete example and asked the bot to continue where I left off.
And that was the entirety of the conversation, typed out in just a few minutes.
