I did not write this. ChatGPT did.
Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve been hearing a lot about ChatGPT and synthetic media lately. I decided to see if ChatGPT could write this blog for me, and if synthetic media could create my video. To do this I logged in and asked it to write a 700-word blog post about using ChatGPT to write blog posts.
Here’s what it returned. Please remember I did not write this:
“To use ChatGPT to write a blog post, start by providing the model with a prompter topic you want the post to be about. You can then use the model’s generated text as a starting point for your post and edit it as needed to make it more accurate, engaging, and interesting.
Using ChatGPT to write a blog post is a simple process that can save you a lot of time and effort. Here’s a step-by-step explanation of how to use ChatGPT to write a blog post.
- Before you start writing, it’s important to choose a topic for your blog post. This will be the prompt that you provide to ChatGPT to generate text.
- Access the ChatGPT model by using Open AI’s API or other access point.
- Once you have access to the model, you can send the prompt and receive generated text in return. The model will use its training to generate coherent and grammatically correct text based on your prompt.
- The generated text is a great starting point for your post but will likely require editing to make it more accurate, engaging, and interesting. You can edit the text to add more information, correct inaccuracies, and make it more in line with your writing style.
- Check for plagiarism. As the model is trained on a large data set of text, it may generate text that is not unique.
- Publish. Once you’ve finished editing your post and fact checking the information, you can publish your blog post.
There are several reasons why someone might choose to use ChatGPT to write blog posts:
- Time saving. Writing a blog post can be a time-consuming task, especially if you are struggling to come up with ideas or find the right words. ChatGPT can generate coherent and grammatically correct text, providing a starting point that you can then edit as needed.
- Improved productivity. Using ChatGPT can also help improve productivity by allowing you to generate multiple versions of a post quickly.
- Consistency. ChatGPT can be used to write a blog post on a consistent basis and can help maintain a regular blogging schedule.
- Variety. With a wide range of topics, it can help generate a variety of posts, which can be helpful for bloggers that are looking diversify their content.
- Language proficiency. ChatGPT can be used to write blog posts in multiple languages. This can be helpful for bloggers or content creators that are not proficient in a particular language.”
I did not shoot the video ChatGPT wrote. RenderMedia AI did.
Okay, now me again.
Next, I uploaded the text to RenderMedia and had them create the video attached to this blog using synthetic media AI, otherwise known as deepfake technology. I also asked ChatGPT about the implications of deepfake technology. Here is what it wrote:
“Deep fake technology has been in the news due to its increasing use in creating realistic videos of people saying and doing things they never actually did.
One high profile example of this was the deep fake video of former President Barack Obama, in which his face and voice were manipulated to make it appear as though he were saying things he never said.
Another example of deep fake technology being used in a negative way, was a deep fake video of a well-known actress where her face was superimposed on a pornographic video in a non-consensual way.
It’s worth noting that the use of ChatGPT and other AI-powered text generation tools can be controversial, particularly when it comes to issues such as plagiarism and the spreading of disinformation. As a result, some users may be hesitant to admit that they are using these tools. Additionally, as the use of ChatGPT is becoming more common, it’s also becoming more difficult to detect if text was written by a human or by an AI model.
On the positive side, combining ChatGPT text with synthetic media video, can create highly engaging and interactive content. It can be used to create virtual presenters or hosts for new shows that can interact with guests in real time, making the show more engaging and interactive. Additionally, it can be used to create videos with realistic lip sync and speech, which can be used in the entertainment industry, such as movies and TV shows.
Combining ChatGPT text with synthetic media video has the potential to create highly engaging and interactive content but it also raises serious ethical and legal concerns, such as spreading disinformation, harassment, and impersonation. It’s important to be aware of these concerns and to use the technology responsibly, ensuring that it’s not used to harm or deceive individuals.”
Hey, it’s Bruce again. Remember, I didn’t write any of this and I didn’t actually read it on camera, I simply uploaded the text. Imagine the implications…
