Artificial intelligence (AI) has been a hot topic in the tech world for years, but it’s only recently that AI has become part of mainstream conversation. With advances in technology and more companies investing heavily in AI research, many people are wondering how this new technology will affect their lives. To get an idea of what Americans think about AI, FiveThirtyEight spoke with ChatGPT, a natural language processing system developed by OpenAI.
ChatGPT is designed to simulate conversations between humans and machines using natural language processing techniques. The system was trained on millions of conversations from Reddit and other sources to learn how humans interact with each other online. After training the model on these conversations, ChatGPT was able to generate its own responses when asked questions about topics such as politics or current events.
When asked if Americans were excited about artificial intelligence, ChatGPT responded that most people weren’t very enthusiastic about it: “Most people seem to be wary or even scared of AI.” This sentiment reflects recent surveys which have found that while there is some interest in the potential benefits of artificial intelligence among American adults, there is also significant concern over its potential risks and implications for privacy and security.
The survey results suggest that while Americans may not be overly excited about artificial intelligence right now, they do recognize its potential value for society at large — particularly when it comes to improving healthcare outcomes or increasing efficiency within businesses. In fact, according to a 2018 Pew Research Center study on public attitudes toward robotics and automation technologies like AI-driven robots or self-driving cars — nearly two-thirds (64%) said they believe these technologies will make life easier for most people in the future than it is today.
However despite this optimism towards automation technologies overall — many still express concerns over job loss due to increased use of robots or automated systems taking away jobs traditionally done by humans; as well as worries over data privacy issues related to machine learning algorithms being used by companies without proper oversight or regulation from government agencies like the Federal Trade Commission (FTC).
It’s clear from both our conversation with ChatGPT as well as survey results that although Americans may not be overly enthusiastic about artificial intelligence right now—they do recognize its potential value for society at large—particularly when it comes to improving healthcare outcomes or increasing efficiency within businesses—and are cautiously optimistic regarding its long term impact on our lives going forward into the future.. As we continue down this path towards greater integration between man and machine -it’s important we remain aware of both opportunities presented by advancements in Artificial Intelligence -as well as any associated risks posed along the way so we can ensure everyone remains safe & secure during this transition period ahead .
