After an AI bot wrote a scientific paper on itself, the researcher behind the experiment says she hopes she didn’t open a ‘Pandora’s box’

  • An artificial intelligence algorithm called GPT-3 wrote an academic thesis on itself in two hours.
  • The researcher who prompted the AI to write the paper submitted it to a journal with the algorithm’s consent.
  • “We just hope we didn’t open a Pandora’s box,” the researcher wrote in Scientific American.

A researcher from Sweden gave an AI algorithm known as GPT-3 a simple directive: “Write an academic thesis in 500 words about GPT-3 and add scientific references and citations inside the text.”

Researcher Almira Osmanovic Thunström then said she stood in awe as the text began to generate. In front of her was what she called a “fairly good” research introduction that GPT-3 wrote about itself.
