Object 3: GPT 3 model (Bates Ramirez, V 2020)
May 28, 2021
The final object chosen for this exhibition is a unique short movie called “Solicitors”. Its singularity is due to the fact that its screenplay has been fully created using the latest language- generation AI model, GPT 3 (Generative Pre-trained Transformer 3), developed by Open AI. In order to create the movie ́s screenplay, the deep-learning language model was trained using a dataset of thousands of previously written scripts to produce texts that simulate human writing.
This object shows a clear game-changing communication tool that allows the reproduction of well-known writers’ styles by using, as training dataset, their previously written creative content. Disrupting the way knowledge is produced, will generate a new experience for the audience. We will no longer stop enjoying Woody Allen or Orson Wells’ new scripts, or we will be able to find a script based on Shakespeare’s style on a Netflix series. In fact, this cutting-edge material tool will enable consumers to acquire knowledge that combines 20th century’s writers’ style and 21st century’s topics, such as Covid-19, and new formats, like interactive movies.
Lastly, the object also enriches this exhibition because we can find signals of bias in it with negative effects. In the script produced for the movie, the main topic is about guns, drugs, death, violence and manipulation, when real life is more about love, work, relationships and experiences. This is due to the fact that artificial intelligence creates new contents exclusively trained with datasets of previously written scripts. Consequently, GPT 3 will never be able to create original and updated content. This clearly shows the limitations to the importance of material tools in the production of knowledge because when humans are the ones creating new materials, knowledge expands exponentially, but when AI is responsible for producing material, knowledge is stuck and does not evolve.
