Sinbad had his 🦜 too: reclaiming the design of digital artifacts with ChatGPT-powered users
ChatGPT’s advanced neural network allows it to generate human-like responses with remarkable speed and accuracy, making it a game-changer in today’s rapidly evolving technological landscape. In the Critical AI studies, there’s a discussion around LLMs being akin to ”stochastic parrots”. These models, while powerful and transformative, often mimic and replicate the data they were trained on without genuine understanding, much like a parrot. But envision a scenario where we could leverage the parroting ability of these models for user empowerment and active engagement in design. Imagine a parrot that is not merely a mimic but a collaborator in the crafting and personalization of digital artifacts, reminiscent of the legendary Sinbad’s wise parrot.
