Fear the AI Who Has Practiced Next Word Guessing 10 Trillion Times

•, by Brian Wang

Many now fear the AI, ChatGPT-4. ChatGPT grew from the original task of guessing the next word in a sentence, but it has done this task trillions of times. I fear not the AI who has practiced 10 trillion guesses once, but I fear the AI who has practiced next word guessing 10 trillion times.

The nature of intelligence is being revealed with the success of ChatGPT and other Large Language Models. This AI success is showing some aspect of truth to the infinite monkey theorem. The infinite monkey theorem states that a monkey hitting keys at random on a typewriter keyboard for an infinite amount of time will almost surely type any given text, such as the complete works of William Shakespeare.

The generative AIs are learning reasoning and logic as emergent capabilities from the need to do more to master its task of next word guessing. ChatGPT is more than just infinite monkeys.. ChatGPT was trained on at least 570GB of data. It learned from the large amounts of data.
