If you needed any more evidence that Democrats have difficulty coming up with original thoughts and ideas, look no further than the most recent congressional speech delivered by Rep. Jake Auchincloss, who, according to Fox News, apparently thought it would be a great idea to have artificial intelligence (AI) write the speech for him.
“When U.S. Rep. Jake Auchincloss decided to deliver a speech on a bill that would create a U.S.-Israel artificial intelligence center, he opted to let the AI do the talking.
The brief two-paragraph speech read by the Massachusetts Democrat on the floor of the U.S. House on Wednesday was generated by the online AI chatbot ChatGPT. His staff said they believe it’s the first time an AI-written speech was read in Congress,” Fox News reported.
Well, isn’t that something. That’s one way to render congressional staff irrelevant … just have AI do their jobs for them.
Gotta love how the news media adds “they believe it’s the first time an AI-written speech was read in Congress,” suggesting that other speeches may have been written by AI as well, especially if Democrat staffers were too busy being outraged to do any actual work.
In truth, AI probably has a better grasp of English grammar than the average Democrat staffer anyway.
Just consider the AI-produced excerpt from the Democrat rep’s speech: “We must collaborate with international partners like the Israeli government to ensure that the United States maintains a leadership role in AI research and development and responsibly explores the many possibilities evolving technologies provide.”
Siri, deliver a speech on Israeli-U.S. relations, stat.
“I’m the youngest parent in the Democratic caucus, AI is going to be part of my life and it could be a general purpose technology for my children,” Auchincloss declared.
Well, AI certainly thinks enough for the youth of today, that’s for sure.
After all, they’re all brainwashed by whatever woke cause social media tells them to care about.
“There were probably about a dozen of my colleagues on the floor. I bet none of them knew it was written by a computer,” the representative boasted.
Well, Mr. Auchincloss is probably exactly right. They are likely totally unaware, assuming they were even paying attention in the first place.
Needless to say, college students who actually work are quite perturbed by the idea of individuals trying to pass of AI-written work as their own original thoughts.
Which is why Mr. Edward Tian did something about it.
“Earlier this month, 22-year-old Princeton student Edward Tian created an app to detect if something had been written by a machine. Named GPTZero, it was so popular that when he launched it, the app crashed from overuse,” NPR reported.
Good for him! Now that’s the type of innovative thinking representatives should be encouraging, rather than increased dependence on (Democrat-controlled) tech.
“Humans deserve to know when something is written by a human or written by a machine,” Tian proclaimed.
Do they ever …
