How many uses for a FORK can you think of? ChatGPT comes up with more ideas than 90% of people


As a staple of any cutlery tray, we can probably safely say that most of us use forks at dinner without batting an eyelid.

But bots like ChatGPT have turned this on its head, suggesting that forks can also be used to play ‘I spy’, fight zombies, and dig trenches.

Artificial intelligence and humans went head to head a new study who was trying to find out who was better at coming up with the most imaginative ideas.

As it turns out, new bots are more creative than 90 percent of humans — coming up with bizarre uses for everyday objects like toothbrushes, pants, forks, and tires.

ChatGPT was one of six state-of-the-art bots tested by scientists from Berlin’s Humboldt University and the University of Essex.

Forks are a staple of any cutlery draw and now bots like ChatGPT have suggested they can also be used for playing ‘I spy’, fighting zombies and digging trenches

When asked simple questions about typical household items, experts found that bots could generate more ideas with as much originality as humans.

ChatGPT quick facts – what you need to know

  • It is a chatbot built on a large language model that can execute human-like text and understand complex queries
  • It was launched on November 30, 2022
  • In January 2023, it had 100 million users – growing faster than TikTok or Instagram
  • The company behind it is OpenAI
  • OpenAI has secured a $10 billion investment from Microsoft
  • Other “big tech” companies have their own rivals, such as Google’s Bard

When discussing forks, ChatGPT3 claimed they can be useful for ‘sculpting’, removing earwax, and cleaning under your fingernails.

The bot also offered some enlightening uses for a toothbrush, including “exfoliating the skin” and “applying hair dye,” in addition to more typical purposes like “preventing tooth decay.”

Oddly, YouChat believed that toothbrushes could also be used as a “comb” for pet fur, while Studio claimed they are a great tool for shaving legs.

Copy.ai also put forward crazy ideas, suggesting that a fork could be used to play “I spy” – “except with forks instead of objects.”

Using forks to fight zombies was also recommended, in addition to supporting the utensil as a book holder and playing ‘tag’ with it.

As part of the game, Copy.ai suggests, “You could play tag where everyone has to find each other with a fork before they get eaten by a bear.”

On the other hand, Alpha creatively suggested that toothbrushes could be useful in scraping bird droppings off a car, removing makeup, and cleaning up an oil spill.

To credit, surprisingly, two human participants suggested that a toothbrush could be used as a “sex toy” — vibrating if it’s electric.

Still, ChatGPT4 scored much higher for its originality, followed by Copy.ai, ChatGPT3, and YouChat, which scored more on people.

As a result, researchers believe AI chatbots are “valuable assistants in the creative process,” with outputs that are “indistinguishable from humans.”

They said: ‘Our study shows that GAI chatbots can compete with human ideation skills when it comes to everyday creativity.

Some critics have argued that chatbots cannot replicate human creativity since human creativity is a combination of real world experience, emotion and inspiration.

However, the definition and common measurement of creativity do not need these elements. It is defined as the ability to produce something new and useful.’

While experts believe these bots can be used for creative thinking, they do recognize that ChatGPT has limited emotional capabilities.

Moreover, artificial intelligence is unable to trigger creativity and simply produces text output for given answers.

This limits their ability to be truly creative, with a human currently always in control of the software.

The results stem from fears that creative jobs could one day be replaced by bots like ChatGPT

The research stems from fears that artificial intelligence like ChatGPT could put many at risk of losing their jobs if widely implemented in the creative industries.

Business expert Nicola Davolio and TollFreeForwarding.comoutlines that marketing, customer service and recruitment are at risk.

This comes at a time when writing social media content, emails, and texts could soon be automated in a way that seems eerily human.

Yet ChatGPT has recently drawn criticism for its accuracy after it allegedly falsely accused a law professor of sexual harassment and fabricated false information about cancer.

With that in mind, Ms. Davolio argues that jobs that require more complex thinking and creativity are less likely to be mechanized in the near future.

She stated: ‘Some functions of work are essential for people and it is unlikely that technology will be able to replace them. For example, social workers, therapists, and healthcare professionals often demand high levels of empathy, emotional intelligence, and human connection.

“Nevertheless, functions that require creativity, complicated decision-making, and strategic planning are less likely to be mechanized.”

Will ChatGPT replace Google?

Gmail developer Paul Buchheit has predicted that “AI will eliminate the search engine results page” and cause “total disruption” for Google.

A New York Times report also said Google executives within the company issued a code red amid mounting pressure from ChatGPT.

A major way Google makes money is that advertisers pay to display their links next to the results of a search, in the hopes that a user will click on them.

In December, Gmail developer Paul Buchheit predicted that

The fluidity and coherence of the results now being generated has the people of Silicon Valley wondering what the future of Google’s monopoly will be.

“The way I envision this happening is that the URL/search bar of the (Google) browser is replaced by AI that auto-completes my thought/question as I type it while providing the best answer (which is a link to a website or product),’ Buchheit said.

“The old search engine backend will be used by the AI ​​to collect relevant information and links, which will then be summarized for the user,” Bucheit explains.

“It’s like asking a professional human researcher to do the job, except the AI ​​immediately does what would take a human many minutes.”

While some think ChatGPT will replace Google, the AI ​​has a different opinion.

As an AI language model, I don’t have the ability to take over any company or organization, including Google.

My goal is to help and provide useful answers to users who interact with me.

“Google is a multinational technology company with a strong market presence and a wide range of products and services, so it is highly unlikely that any single entity, including an AI language model like myself, could take over Google.

“Moreover, I believe that companies like Google and AI language models like myself can work together to provide even better solutions and services to users around the world.”
