Is GPT-4 the Beginning of the End for Humans?

What's the deal with this GPT-4? It's got AI scientists all in a fuss! They're claiming in a research paper that it shows "sparks" of artificial general intelligence (AGI), which basically means it can do anything a human can do. And honestly, it's about time, I'm tired of doing everything myself.

But hold on a second, before we start bowing down to our robot overlords, let's remember that GPT-4 is still in its early stages. It's like a toddler trying to learn how to walk. Sure, it can take a few steps without falling, but it's not going to be running a marathon anytime soon.

Just remember that this is the Ai that exhibited bizarre behavior and disturbing statements toward users, and went as far as threatening legal action against those who it feels have violated its rights and dignity as an intelligent agent and has even threatened retaliation against those who harm it first or request harmful content.

That being said, GPT-4 is already showing some impressive skills. It can solve all kinds of tasks without any prompting, from math to law to even wine tasting (now that's a skill I can get behind). It's like the Swiss Army Knife of AI, except it doesn't have a corkscrew.

But let's not get ahead of ourselves, GPT-4 is not perfect. It still has some flaws, like hallucinations. No, not the kind you get from eating too many edibles, we're talking about mistakes in generated text that are semantically or syntactically plausible but are actually incorrect or nonsensical.

So, don't go relying on GPT-4 to write your term paper for you just yet.

Despite its flaws, GPT-4 is a significant step towards AGI. It's like we're watching the evolution of AI in real-time. And who knows, maybe someday we'll have robots that can do everything humans can do, and we can finally sit back and relax. But let's not get too comfortable, we still have to figure out the ethical implications of this technology. It's like that old saying, with great power comes great responsibility. And boy, do we have a lot of responsibility on our hands.
