The Robot’s are Coming!  AAaaargh Ruuunn!

Welcome Everyone, to Project: T.R.A.C.A.R – Deep in the skunkworks of Totem Towers we’ve taken it upon ourselves to investigate a surprising new technology.  ChatGPT is an artificial intelligence language model created by OpenAI, designed to understand and generate human-like language, allowing it to communicate with humans through text-based conversations.

And if you doubt the veracity of that claim, we didn’t write the above paragraph.  ChatGPT did…

This technology is brand new, factory fresh, out of the box stuff and like most of the world, it’s piqued our curiosity.  What is it?  What can we do with it?  How will it impact our industry?  We have absolutely no idea what the answers to those questions are, but by Jove we’re going to find out.

As part of a ringfenced internal project exploring AI in the HR / Training industry, over the next 12 months we’re going to begin working with this novel tool and see what’s what.  And it’s important to make the “ringfenced” point here, there are some early ethical concerns being raised about the use of AI in a learning environment so with that in mind, we’ll clearly sign post when you’re interacting with AI generated content and we’ll keep it very much separate from our usual consultancy work.  The BPS take a dim view of Psychologists testing hypotheses on people without consent.

We’re very keen to share our learning journey with you, but we should make clear that our transparency during this process comes at a cost.

No, no.  We’re not going to charge you or ask for an email address.  Much worse.  We are probably going to make some mistakes whilst using it, and that’s not a look we’re comfortable with.

With that said, let’s plough on.  Over the coming months we’ll be running dual marketing campaigns, one written by our very own, very fabulous and very human Helen Frewin and the other written strictly by ChatGPT under the guise and guidance of Mark Smith .  We’ll have some internal work going off too, but for the fabulous followers of all things Totem you’ll be able to compare Helen’s work on a specific topic directly to the work of an AI.

Where it makes sense we’ll also publish the Question / Response script to show how our understanding is progressing like below.  So stay tuned everyone!

Hello! I am an artificial intelligence language model created by OpenAI. I am designed to understand and generate human-like language, allowing me to communicate with humans through text-based conversations.

An artificial intelligence language model is a computer program designed to understand and generate human-like language. It is a type of artificial intelligence that specializes in processing and analyzing text-based information.

These language models use complex algorithms and statistical models to learn patterns and structures in human language. They are trained on large amounts of text data, such as books, articles, and online content, in order to improve their ability to understand and generate language.

Language models are used for a variety of tasks, including language translation, text summarization, question answering, and chatbot interactions like this one. They are becoming increasingly sophisticated and powerful, and are being applied to a wide range of applications across industries such as healthcare, finance, and entertainment.

To get detailed answers from me, it’s important to be specific and provide as much context as possible when asking your question. This will help me better understand what you’re asking and provide a more accurate and informative response.

Also, try to break down complex or multi-part questions into smaller, more manageable chunks. This will allow me to address each aspect of your question in a clear and organized way.

Finally, don’t hesitate to ask follow-up questions or request clarification if needed. I’m here to help and am always happy to provide additional information or further explanation if necessary.
