I asked an AI for video ideas, and they were actually good

I didn't expect this to work so well. • Includes text generated by OpenAI's GPT-3 at my request: openai.com • Art by Chris Quay: www.chrisquay.com/ • Got an idea for a video? www.tomscott.com/contact/
Filmed safely: www.tomscott.com/safe/
OpenAI had no control or sign-off on this video, although I agreed to abide by their ethical guidelines and social media policy.
Thanks to Eddie the corgi's owner for introducing me to the folks at OpenAI: instagram.com/eddie_corg

  • I should clarify that by "out of ideas", I mean that I've only got enough to last me until the end of March, or maybe the middle of April if lockdown eases. The way I work, that's close enough that I start to get worried.

    • I see one really bad idea that bots could do even today that would bring someone a lot of money but also a lot of misery to people, so I wont even bring it out of my head, purely because if I see that trend happening, I'll feel like shite(and, I'm aware of parallel thinking and I know that someone has probably thought of it and has no moral quandary about it). I see an army of people like hamsters in a wheel running away but never getting there 24/7/365, that's as far i'll go into it..

    • @TheMiningTeam "The point of GPT-3 is that it creates whole new sentences based on what it has seen before." YES EXACTLY! You do understand it is working off what it has access to? ITS NOT CREATING ANYTHOMNG FROM SCRATCH! Its copying everything it creates from other sentences. Combining words and phrases from other sentences and phrases. Since it doesnt know how to do it! it makes silly suggestions and impossible ones. This is why ARTIFICAL intelligence fails, it requires (REAL) INTELLEGNCE to do the things they try to get ARTIFICAL intelligence to do! You just cant code that!

  • Could potentially be a boring one but it seems like your style (not that you're boring! It's just you cover weird little stories like this). What about the lack of BT in Hull (only place without BT lines in mainland Britain as far as I know). Just seems like a little oddity that's arose due to Britain being weird about things again.

  • All cliffs refuse to be cliffs, they are continuously eroded by the water cycle. We just don't notice their desperation for suicide because it occurs on a geological time scale, not a human one. So please, have some empathy for the cliffs of the world for at some point they'll all have jumped into the sea.

  • Anemoia is the name for nostalgia for something you've never experienced. the concept has a connotation of being for people who are younger than an event feeling nostalgia for said event. looking at popular "old style" letsplays or YT videos/website archives from when youtube/the internet was in its infancy. i think retro shooters play on this feeling heavily perhaps without realising the exact term.

  • Adding a restriction that the stories be True ... that sounds a lot like the interplay between the different parts of the brain, where the frontal lobe filters impulses and exerts self-control. What GPT-3 has managed seems analogous to what our brains manage during Dreaming or creative efforts like stringing together Poetry. An artist will apply rules to filter and rearrange concepts, but those are based on a World Model that the "AI" simply doesn't have yet. It doesn't have a concept of how things work; it only spots relationships.
