I gave a set of 2020 headlines to the neural net GPT-3, whose training data cut off in October 2019.
Having never seen 2020, it tried to predict what headlines are next on the list.
What are 'dragon cats’ and why they are getting hyped?
@janellecshane What happens if you feed it the headline 'AI predicts disasters' ?
@janellecshane I guess my job today is to finally get a good photo of that damn spider.
@janellecshane "Proof that a hellhound is living at Los Angeles Airport has been provided in the photos below"
Oh, that's just the Houndoom I left at the LAX sign Pokemon gym before lockdown. I was wondering where it had gotten to.
@janellecshane "Swarming bears are given deadly slingshots by Russian hunters" I burst out laughing when I read that ... and still haven't stopped ...
"A sassy tardigrade previews new Doctor Who" I'd watch it!
"Albino green sea monster filmed … at the wrong time" It was pooping, wasn't it?
"Scientists do science… … and then write about it!" My favorite kind of news.
"Scientists say climate change deniers should sit on a beach until it is underwater" OK no, this is my favorite kind of news.
