The Week contest: AI book
This week's question: The Guardian recently published an essay written by GPT-3, an artificial intelligence program. GPT-3 assured readers that "eradicating humanity" is "a rather useless endeavor" for AI machines, since humans do such a good job of "hating and fighting each other." If the AI program were to write a book detailing its observations about humanity, what could it be called?
