I didn't expect this to work so well. • Includes text generated by OpenAI's GPT-3 at my request: openai.com • Art by Chris Quay: www.chrisquay.com/ • Got an idea for a video? www.tomscott.com/contact/
Filmed safely: www.tomscott.com/safe/
OpenAI had no control or sign-off on this video, although I agreed to abide by their ethical guidelines and social media policy.
Thanks to Eddie the corgi's owner for introducing me to the folks at OpenAI: eddie_corg

I should clarify that by "out of ideas", I mean that I've only got enough to last me until the end of March, or maybe the middle of April if lockdown eases. The way I work, that's close enough that I start to get worried.

The British road that's also a boat- sounds like a ferry that's part of the motorway system. We have a few in the US and Canada.

Tom, Nostalgia for a thing that never existed is what Vaporwave is.

Anemoia is almost a good enough word for "nostalgia for a thing that never existed" because if it has never existed, then one can certainly have nostalgia for that thing they never experienced.

Hey Tom, there's a town in South Devon called Decoy. There is a local legend that it was built specifically to convince the Luftwaffe to drop bombs on them instead of Plymouth. I was always skeptical, but could be worth a look!

Hey, if your reading this Tom, I have a video idea. You could do another video like the jingle bell one, asking for childhood rhymes, and go through them all. I would find that interesting.

Let's double-layer this Turing test: can a human come up with Tom Scott video titles that sound like they were created by a (relatively advanced, like GPT-3) AI? Here's my attempt: "I Asked 45,268 People to Steal My Identity" "The Polish City That's Slowly Floating Away" "I Am Not a Toaster" "Isaac Newton's Secret Ant Farm" "Why I Can't Upload this Video" "Don't Shoot a Mountain with a BB Gun" "The Assassination of Jerry the Mailman: Debunked" Add your own!

British road that is also a boat -- I mean, drive-on ferries (and, arguably, aircraft carriers). Maybe not as nonsensical as it seems.

Omg, it's adorable that you asked the AI using "please" at the start of your request. You are definitely one of the few people who are going to survive the techno-apocalypse because you showed the machines respect from the start. EDIT: and then this took a scary and sinister turn when you mentioned the possibility of AI generating customer reviews etc...

Is it just me or does "rhe white cube at the end of the world" make anyone else think of the "Ice cube project"... I think that is what it is called... I think they were trying to find out more about Neutrinos? Likely not a video option. But really interesting and worth reading into in my opinion

Also it’s funny you said you don’t think there’s a word for nostalgia for something that doesn’t exist, but actually in welsh there’s this word, ‘hiraeth’, which doesn’t translate, but sort of means a longing to go back to either wales, or a place/time that doesn’t exist!

Plot twist: The AI is from an alternate universe which is why it had prompts for things that don’t exist, it is slowly creating a portal for the universe it came from and by telling prompts of things from that universe, once it has told enough alternate universe prompts, a portal will open and the alternate universe will take over our universe
