You may have seen the recent article in the Guardian written by an AI (and edited by a human): A robot wrote this entire article. Are you scared yet, human? | Artificial intelligence (AI) | The Guardian
I thought I'd try it for myself, and found this tutorial for using AI Dungeon to access the GPT-3 language processor in a game environment: How to to get an early access to GPT-3 and how to talk to it
I followed the tutorial, and decided to give the AI this seemingly boring opening:
You are a building inspector. You notice a big crack on the side of a house. You knock on the door to speak to the owner.
After a few taps, the AI generated the following exchange without any input from me:
"Hello?" you say. "I'm an inspector for the city, and I need to see if this house is structurally sound."
The man looks at his watch. "Oh, sorry," he says. "It's just getting late. We're closed right now." He waves you away.
A few blocks away, you find another house that needs inspecting. This one has a sign out front saying it's being renovated. The owner opens the door and welcomes you in.
"Hi!" she says. "I'm Karen. How are you doing?"
"I'm fine, and you?" you respond.
From this response, I realised that my opening scenario could be loaded with double entendres, and replied in Carry On style - this was the result (my input is in italics):
You say "I'm just in the neighborhood looking for cracks. Do you have any cracks you need inspecting?"
"What? Oh, sure. I was going to have my house fixed after all, but... well, I'm still happy to inspect anything your profession requires."
Karen leads you to her kitchen.
You say "Nope. Can't see any cracks in here. Maybe there's a crack in the bedroom that needs filling."
She looks at you curiously. "You know, you're very smooth sometimes. I bet you say that to all the girls."
Oh, really? You must be the first one to actually call attention to it!
At this point I decided to stop before going full perv, and write up this article. Clearly the AI has been trained on a lot of content, which is bound to include a lot of porn. So it would be quite easy to set up the AI to generate endless porn scenarios.
