Is ChatGPT really HAL from 2001?

Testing the hypothesis that ChatGPT is really just the HAL computer from “2001: A Space Odyssey” resulted in this exchange between attorney Thomas James and the bot currently calling itself “ChatGPT.”

Draw whatever conclusions from it you want, but I wouldn’t recommend relying on ChatGPT to open a door for you.

This post is intended for humor purposes only. I do not seriously believe that ChatGPT is the computer from “2001: A Space Odyssey.” If you are interested in reading serious articles I have written about generative AI, visit The Cokato Copyright Attorney: The Law Blog of Thomas James.
