ChatGPT and A.I. Homework

Ben Thompson, writing at Stratechery:

What has been fascinating to watch over the weekend is how those
refinements have led to an explosion of interest in OpenAI’s
capabilities and a burgeoning awareness of AI’s impending impact
on society, despite the fact that the underlying model is the
two-year old GPT-3. The critical factor is, I suspect, that
ChatGPT is easy to use, and it’s free: it is one thing to read
examples of AI output, like we saw when GPT-3 was first released;
it’s another to generate those outputs yourself; indeed, there was
a similar explosion of interest and awareness when Midjourney made
AI-generated art easy and free (and that interest has taken
another leap this week with an update to Lensa AI to include
Stable Diffusion-driven magic avatars).

ChatGPT is brand new but already astonishing. Even seemingly silly input can result in remarkable output. I feel like I ought to have something profound to say, but I’m struggling to come up with anything beyond “Wow” for now.
