Not Daily Podcast

We use our approximate knowledge of many things to craft unanswerable questions. We mix cognitive science and philosophy with pop culture, tech and science to start with raw perspectives. Refining them through steamed up yet rational conversation we generally stumble upon odd answers. Hosted pseudo monthly by two humans.

We first revisit what your storage system says about you to bring up the social aspects that we didn't study last time.

But the core of this episode is the reason why it took us a while to make it: we tried to interview an AI powered by GPT-3, the latest machine learning framework from OpenAI. You can listen to the raw interview, but there's a lot of ambiguity between what humans produced and what AI produced, and even though this ambiguity is a pretty cool piece of performative art, it may not be the best podcast experience :)

So in this episode, we debrief this interview and share the best highlights from it: what is GPT-3 good at? bad at? Is it intelligent? Is it conscious? What does any of these words even mean? What's the fundamental difference between its "brain" and ours? Can it replace us? Could it have written a better description?

All this and much more in an exclusive interview of our new AI overlords.
