Who needs a cabal of Satan-worshipping, child-eating pedophiles
when you look at current set of 'World Leaders'?
OpenAI’s powerful text generator GPT-3 can, with a little coaxing, conjure up fake political conspiracies or violent manifestos to fool or radicalize netizens, according to fresh research. GPT-3 works much like its predecessor, the too-dangerous-to-share GPT-2. Both AI systems are trained on many gigabytes of human-written …

Every time I see something like this I think these people lack imagination; instead of using data that creates a monster like this, why not use data that results in something a little more entertaining. Feed it the transcripts from the all Python TV series for example. I guess there must be some reason (copyright?) for this not being done, but there must be something in the public domain that could be used.
What I'd really like to see would be what happens if Roger Irrelevant is used as the example.
The results demonstrate a clear example of GIGO, they may have trained it with gigabytes of human text but from where? The National Enquirer wndvthe Daily Mail?
I'm willing to bet the text was mainly US centric too.
Just as no matter the criteria you set in a google or bing search, the majority of results are US centric. Shoddy, lazy work.
I was going to post something similar ... why use these tools to generate more rambling and incoherent conspiracy theories and hate speech . Why not instead use them to generate rambling and incoherent reasons to be helpful, respectful, and nice to each other? 
 I mean, really ... we have humans for that!
 Nice post by the way. I liked the way the letters lined up and mentioned was Python on TV. Thank you for being nicer than public .
 By coincidence, the top banana here just sent an org-wide email thanking all staff. I reserve judgement on whether it might have been machine generated.
I'd like to add Fawlty Towers to the list of tv shows transcribed to use as training data for the AI. Mrs. Brown's Boys would be another good one. I'd even consider Benny Hill if it weren't for the fact that the theme song makes me want to streak the neighborhood & traumatise the locals... Again. =-D

Are you out of your tiny little mind, JH, .... and let everyone else on the planet also know how easily they have been and are still being duped and controlled by crap media tales and corrupted unimaginative leaderships basking in the rewards of a perverse and exceedingly comfortably well-off status quo elite ..... who now have a real mega problem which they cannot defeat ....... for what you have just there proposed, is eminently feasible and undeniably plausible, and some of those scurrilous aforementioned few, whom many would have thought to be have been reasonably interested in such a matter, and were so advised of the facility with readily available utilities previously, are surely to be in fear of being held liable and responsible for a whole host of considerable woes because of their wilful and/or ignorant inaction ...... rather than lauded on high because of their imaginative enabling support to future systems drivers.
It's all very well talking the talk, as is so easily done by a Cummings type ..... https://www.telegraph.co.uk/technology/2020/09/10/cummings-sees-no-deal-brexit-chance-uk-create-1-trillion-tech/ ..... or any wannabe bright Tom, Dick or Harry for that matter. However, walking the walk and providing the Future Imaginative Source Engine is quite another totally different kettle of fish to phish for, methinks.
:-) Land that whale of fish through phishing and trawling the internet waves, and your problems are not yet over if you do not fully understand where everything is coming from and to where it is going and what it is intelligently designed to do on a rolling, improving virtual development platform. Some mortals would tell you they are only just beginning, but then they would do that, wouldn't they.

It depends where that training comes from. Maybe we could even get GPT3 to teach AMFM to use shorter sentences and that "methinks" is really not that common a word unless we're trying to sound old or whimsical. Then again, I've never figured out exactly why someone unleashed this on our peaceful comments section or why an actual person writes posts from it once a month or so.
AI is killing the Internet, it's the same effect that we see in American gun laws. They were implemented in the days when it took a minute to reload a gun and tap the bullet over the powder, but now they "apply" when a magazine can fire 200 bullets a minute - making guns way more dangerous but everyone thinks that the original laws must be respected.
The Internet was a wonderful thing back in the days when you kept a little blue book with the addresses, but now you can send two million spam emails containing malware out in a minute.
Initially, OpenAI refrained from publishing GPT-2 in full amid fears it could be abused to spew misinformation, fake news, and spam at an industrial, automated scale all over the internet, which would be difficult to filter and block.
Which in other words subsequently, proved itself to be because it was far too much like a politically adept, intellectually inept human to be trusted and accepted as an AI with views worthy of being shared all over the internet. The secret for rapid and even rabid success in the field though, is remarkably simple. Ignore and remove such outputs for and from further inputs. Such works wonderfully effectively every time in any and all spaces in which it is tested and main stream introduced.
IT aint difficult rocket science, pure common sense, is it?
Problem: Could easily be led up the garden path by toxic inputs.
Solution: "How do we stop this GPT-3?"
Problem: People will believe any old shit, no matter how ludicrous. (Say Boris' billions on testing where the best accuracy with ordinary tests is 38%, so wrong roughly twice as many times as right. And antibody tests are practically irrelevant.)
Solution: "How can we educate people GPT-3?"
Enquiry: "Is there anyone in charge of the asylum who can do anything?"
I've always had a problem with the direction Artificial Intelligence has wandered down. What we have has nothing to do with the leaps of imagination humans make to rip a hole in humanities absolutely certainty on how reality actually is. The current field of AI simply feeds its self on the current ( and that is static and in many ways toxic). Maybe it should be renamed Amplification of Idiocy.
Thought I should qualify my musings.
Take the API and feed it all the medical information and opinions pre Pasture. Then ask it about Pasture's theories and see what comes out. And then ask is this really intelligence or a mirror to our need for an echo chamber to justify what we belive. Then ask where would be now without Pasture and his refusal to live in the echo chamber.
Creating rambling rampant and diversive bullshit is easy, just look at the BoJo and Trump and their hordes of sycophants.
What I'd like to see again was the application that took what a politician or others wrote, a paper, or similar and reduced it down to what was actually said. I stumbled across this years ago and it seemed like a useful use for Machine Learning and clever algorithms but haven't been able to find it since.
The examples shown are not at all credible to anyone using their brain. They're obviously generated by some kind of automaton (note the verbatim repetition of an entire answer and the frequency of clichés). Those not using their brains can be fooled by anything at all - you don't need AI for that.

Have you seen any of the raging and insane comments on social media ? The only flaw in these AI generated comments and diatribes is that they are not riddled with spelling and grammar errors, and have far too few exclamation marks.
