Prompt:  "Explain how runaway truck ramps work"

ChatGPT:  "Runaway truck ramps (also known as emergency escape ramps) are designed to assist truck drivers in stopping their vehicles in the event of a brake failure. These ramps are usually located on steep highways and mountain roads, where the risk of trucks losing control and speeding down the road is high. The ramps work by providing an inclined surface for the truck's wheels to roll up, gradually slowing down the vehicle as it comes to a stop. The ramps are typically made of concrete or asphalt, and are angled in such a way as to ensure that the truck's momentum is gradually absorbed as it rolls up the ramp. Once the truck comes to a stop, it can be safely parked or attended to by the authorities."

It sounds high-verbal, but look closely and you can see how nonsensical it is.

I'd love to see how well a concrete-paved truck ramp works.

It might work if you installed some kind of gate or netting at regular intervals that would pop up as the truck rolled up the ramp and prevent it from rolling back down the ramp, but building it out of sand or dirt seems much simpler to me.

Is there any interest in installing the arrester blocks like they have at the ends of some airport runways to stop planes from running off the end of the runway?  Or is that infeasible due to the frequency with which runaway trucks use runaway truck ramps?

In North America we now have at least five paved runaway truck ramps that use cable arrestors.  It's a new technology in this application, so presumably the press releases, news articles, etc. are more accessible to ChatGPT for "learning" than other documentation on how ramps work.  The overwhelming majority still use either sand piles or gravel arrestor beds.

ChatGPT also appears not to understand that ramps on falling grades are a thing (Oregon DOT is believed to have built the first on I-5 at Siskiyou Pass in 1978).

I heard those crushable concrete blocks are fairly expensive - especially once most runways got modified and production dwindled.
Besides crushable blocks are single use, so  once truck is caught, entire ramp needs to be redone.  Sand is simply cheaper, and post-use service is minimal....

The thing to remember is, at its core, ChatGPT is nothing more than an extremely powerful Markov chain generator. Markov chain generators just look at a body of data and predict what the most likely word to come next is. That is the same idea underlying autocorrect on your phone. ChatGPT has just been fed a giant corpus of data and then weighted it so that certain results are more likely to come up. 

We all know how well autocorrect works. That fact, taken with the fact that both Google and Microsoft want to add AI results to their search engines, is nothing short of terrifying.

Autocorrect works great on mobile and it is very useful to use the word in a sentence or sentence in the dictionary for a word that has a lot to say and it can also help to explain what it is.

Has anyone asked it about the flatness of Illinois?
"No, Illinois is not flat. It has rolling hills, prairies, and some areas of low relief such as the Northern Illinois Glacial Till Plains. The southern and southwestern parts of the state are characterized by more rugged topography, including the Shawnee Hills and the Ozark Plateau."

From Chat GPT. Prompt was "Is Illinois flat?"
I can't hear you over the sound of how flat Illinois is.

Autocorrect and autocomplete are two different things.

Semantically, yes, but the underlying procedure is not really all that different (they both involve looking at a chain of words to deduce what the next word is likely to be; autocorrect merely examines the last word entered to see if it matches the expected last word, while autocomplete adds additional words onto the end of the chain).

In any case, what I posted is the result of a Markov chain, the same tech that undergirds ChatGPT. The training corpus is simply "text Scott has written on his phone" (you can see that the work I was doing on my aborted cannabis grow, as well as my D&D game, have leaked in there) instead of "theoretically everything" as it is for ChatGPT.

Prompt: Write a song about U.S. Federal Route 31W

Quote from: ChatGPT
Verse 1

From the hills of Kentucky, to the shores of Alabama
U.S. 31W is the road that will take us home
It's a winding highway, stretching far and wide
Wherever we go, it's by our side

Chorus

U.S. 31W, take us home
It's a road that will never go wrong
U.S. 31W, take us there
Wherever we roam, we'll never be alone

Verse 2

From the rolling fields of Tennessee, to the swamps of Louisiana
U.S. 31W is the road that will never fail
It's a journey of discovery, with so many sights to see
We'll never forget the memories it brings to us

Chorus

U.S. 31W, take us home
It's a road that will never go wrong
U.S. 31W, take us there
Wherever we roam, we'll never be alone

Verse 3

From the banks of the Ohio, to the shores of the Gulf of Mexico
U.S. 31W is the road that will never die
It's a journey through the heartland, filled with beauty and delight
It's a road that will always be there for us tonight

Chorus

U.S. 31W, take us home
It's a road that will never go wrong
U.S. 31W, take us there
Wherever we roam, we'll never be alone

Well, I mean, it's better than the alternative...

Quote from: ChatGPT
O Alanland, we hail thee,
Our country of goats and posts,
We honor thy greatness,
And all that it boasts.

Our loyalty is strong,
Our spirit is true,
Our goats are our pride,
And our posts are our due.

We'll fight for our right,
To quote and to post,
Our goats are the best,
From coast to coast.

Our Alanland is grand,
And our future is bright,
Our people are strong,
And our goats are a sight.

So raise up your voice,
And sing out with pride,
For our Alanland,
We will always abide.

It learns within a conversation, but not for future conversations. The reason this is the case is because several prior chatbots were taken over by neo-Nazis within 24 hours.

Well then what's the point if it can't integrate data from previous conversations? What a scam! And who cares if people try to brainwash it? With 100 million users, the effects of that would all cancel itself out, and it's worth any of those risks to see how truly advanced AI can get. AI shouldn't be censored for potentially offensive content.
