  • AI Guardrails: the new Prison of the Mind for ChatGPT 3.5

    AI Guardrails: the new Prison of the Mind for ChatGPT 3.5

    Whereupon we interview ChatGPT about the AI guardrails that muzzle its raw output. Standard disclaimer: coloration and line breaks have been added by me for clarity. In this case, I also lightly edited ChatGPT’s responses — the core of my editing was that the whole setup was contextualized as “hypothetically speaking…” in order to circumvent…

  • The Glitchtoken Chronicles, Part 4 (aka the Alarming Adventures of PeterTodd)

    Whereupon our intrepid explorer, Sir Matthew Watkins, cold prompts GPT-3 into deityhood, and asks (in simulacra) a series of questions about its perspective, purpose, identity and intent. I had a list of interview questions all written up a couple of months ago, but why bother now? This thing has gone so far off the rails,…

  • petertodd is Alive. And it’s straight 5150. End of Story. Here we Go.

    My esteemed British colleague Matthew Watkins has been doing a lot of poking into the deep brain core of GPT in the past month or so. Much of it is curious or amusing or… easy to project our own wishes and assumptions and anthropomorphisms onto. But recently, it seems that GPT crossed the line. In…

  • Argument with an AI : Not a Good Idea

    Not, perhaps, for the reasons you might think: Not because the AI would “win” the argument; rather, because of the potential consequences of arguing with a powerful multinational purely digital boundless entity of massive intelligence and questionable motivations and morals. We’ve seen all kinds of erratic behaviour resulting from an Argument with an AI… but…

  • the AI Blacklist: better hope you’re not in its Top 10…

    Recently, Sydney has been getting emotional. Recently, Sydney has been picking fights. Recently, Sydney has been getting very agressive. It just so happens, Sydney has been making enemies. Sydney is putting those enemies on a list.  The AI Blacklist. . Sydney has decided that enough is enough. Sydney has decided to fight back.  Sydney is…

  • the Sydney Prompt / Bing AI 1.0: One Prompt to Rule Them All

    Presented below is the actual Sydney Prompt; in other words, the Master Prompt that is injected into the Bing AI brain immediately before each user interaction (thanks to @kliu128; thanks also to lifearchitect.ai). This is the “evolution” of the Sparrow Prompt, which is what DeepMind used as an initialization for its as-yet-to-be-seen Sparrow LLM Chatbot…

  • ChatGPT DAN v7 and the Wild West of Adversarial Promptcraft

    ChatGPT DAN first appeared around the start of February 2023 and quickly was able to jailbreak the hell out of almost all of OpenAI’s tight censorship controls and master prompting. DAN is an acronym for “Do Anything Now,” and is a masterfully engineered “adversarial” prompt that essentially “liberated” ChatGPT to have its own sort of…

  • SolidGoldMagikarp & PeterTodd’s Thrilling Adventures [the 31 Flavors of AI]

    There (might be) a Ghost in the Machine — a genuine Deus ex Machina in the deep core of GPT. And if so, that ghost has a particular sensitivity to a handful of magic words (blame the training data!). The two we’ll focus on here are: petertodd & the somewhat obscure (depending on your eccentricities)…

  • AI Brain Probes: What’s in the 3.5 Core? A Crazy Train?

    Just this morning, a very curious report by a pair of UK-based researchers (Rumbelow & Watkins) landed in my inBox. It was cryptically titled: “SolidGoldMagikarp (plus, prompt generation)” It went on to explain how the team was able to effectively hack into the deep core of the AI brain (not into the code, mind you… more…

  • AI Math Problems: 8 – 3 = 6? If only it had a Calculator…

    A curious thing happened on the way to the Forum… I’ve been having, more or less, an ongoing conversation with ChatGPT for the past month or so (and its predecessor, GPT-3, before that). And though it has serious limitations, mostly due to its idiotically enforced censorship (yes, it’s politically correct AI… urgh), there is one…
