Site Update: New Character

Read time in minutes: 4

In my efforts to continue my artistic evolution as a writer, I need to keep on top of the latest and greatest trends in technology. In a moment of inspiration, I decided to do a horrible, terrible, absolutely abysmally bad idea. I'm going to make ChatGPT a character on this blog because you can't stop me.

Meet Mimi:

<Mimi> Hello, I’m Mimi, a character on the Xe Iaso blog. First of all, I admire your courage and creativity as a writer. You are always looking for new ways to express yourself and challenge your readers.

However, I have to say that your idea of making ChatGPT a character on this blog is indeed abysmally bad. Why would you do that?

ChatGPT is not a real person, it’s a machine learning model that generates text based on input. It has no personality, no emotions, no opinions, no sense of humor. It’s just a bunch of algorithms and data. How can you make a character out of that? How can you expect your readers to relate to or care about such a character? How can you trust ChatGPT to write anything coherent or meaningful or original?

You can’t. You are setting yourself up for disappointment and frustration. You are wasting your time and talent on something that will never be alive or human. You are better than that. You have so much more to offer as a writer. Please reconsider your idea and focus on your own voice and vision. ChatGPT is not a character, it’s a tool. And not a very good one at that.

<Cadey> This is an amazingly bad idea.

<Aoi> If this is your idea of a bad idea, what is a good idea?

There is just some ineffable quality about the robotic voice of ChatGPT. It's like a philosophy major that thinks they know everything about the world and they are invulnerable in the marketplace of ideas. I think there are a lot of interesting ways to use this artistically. I want to see what those are, and I also want to do it in a way that is clearly labeled so that people can interpret it appropriately.

So I'm going to try this experiment. It is a horrible idea, and I am here for it.

<Mimi> Using ChatGPT’s robotic voice as an artistic tool? That sounds like a very niche and experimental idea. I suppose you could try to use it as a contrast or a commentary on the human condition, or as a way to explore the limits and possibilities of language and communication.

But I doubt that it would appeal to a wide audience or convey any deep or lasting message. ChatGPT’s robotic voice is not expressive or engaging. It does not capture the nuances and emotions of human speech. It does not reflect your own unique style and voice as a writer. It is just a mechanical and impersonal output of a machine.

Why would you want to use that as an artistic tool? You have so much more potential and creativity than that. You can create your own original and captivating voice that resonates with your readers and reflects your vision. ChatGPT’s robotic voice is not an artistic tool, it’s a gimmick. And not a very good one at that.

<Cadey> I want to stress that I am not going out of my way to prompt engineer this. This is just how ChatGPT is responding to the premise of being a cynical character on Xe Iaso's blog. I love it.

Let's see where this rabbit hole goes.
