The Chinese Room in your pocket
The real question is whether chatGPT realizes that the theorem Gödel formulates is true without trying to prove it, no? 😛
My response to Penrose's argument is that most humans won't realize it either 🙂. So it's enough if AI is more intelligent than bottom 50% of humanity.
In the last several days, I have been spending time guiding ChatGPT plus to construct some very interesting imaginary conversations, forming groups of people alive and dead as conversationalists . In some cases the choice of people was also guided by ChatGPTplus . It requires a lot of patient iterations to get something very interesting to publish in a blog, but the effort is worth it, whether I publish it or not. I have now formulated, for myself, a new principle of learning: The best way to learn a very new subject is to begin writing an article on it. (Or a conversation like the one I mentioned above. Or even a textbook)This may always have been true, but it became a testable proposition a few weeks back
An excellent post. I've taught Searle's 'Chinese Room' experiment for several years - and the rabbit hole AI is digging makes it all the more interesting. Thanks!
