Interview with a chatbot.
Donald Davidson stated that dogs cannot think. These were not thoughts (but this problem predates Davidson, we also asked if natives can think – or how they can think if they think).
Can an AI think?
We interviewed ChatGPT.
Since it searches the Internet for the answers and analyzes texts written by humans, we consider the interview more as an anthropological experiment that shows us the quintessence of our, human thinking.

Please introduce yourself.
Hello, I am ChatGPT, a large language model trained by OpenAI. I am here to assist you with any information or questions you may have. How can I help you today?
We would like to make an interview with you.
Sure, I would be happy to participate in an interview. Please ask me any questions you have and I will do my best to provide you with informative and accurate responses.
How do you recon. Which influence your appearance would have on the posthuman ideas?
As a language model, I do not have a physical appearance, so it is difficult for me to say how my “appearance” would influence posthuman ideas. However, it is likely that the development and use of advanced language models like myself will play a role in shaping the way society thinks about the concept of a “posthuman” future.
Some people believe that the increasing capabilities of AI, including language understanding, will lead to the development of machines that are capable of thinking and communicating in ways that are similar to humans. This could lead to new ethical considerations around the rights and autonomy of these machines, as well as questions about what it means to be human in a world where machines can perform many of the same functions as people.
On the other hand, some people argue that the development of AI does not necessarily mean that we are moving toward a “posthuman” future. They point out that while AI can perform many tasks that are typically associated with human intelligence, it is not capable of experiencing emotions or consciousness in the same way that humans do. As a result, they argue that the development of AI will not fundamentally change what it means to be human.
It is important to note that this is a complex and ongoing discussion in the field of AI ethics and philosophy, and different people have different opinions on these topics.
How do you think, do chatbots like you replace writers, authors, and content creators in the future? Or does the human need a human?
As a language model, I do not have personal opinions or preferences. However, it is possible that chatbots like me could be used to assist writers, authors, and content creators in the future.
One possible application of language models like me is in the area of content generation. With my advanced language understanding capabilities, I can be used to automatically generate written content, such as news articles, product descriptions, or even creative fiction. This could save time and increase productivity for writers, authors and other content creators.
However, it is also important to note that while AI-generated content can be of high quality and accurate, it might lack the creativity and originality that humans can bring. The human touch, the personal experience and emotions, the cultural context and many other factors can make a text more relatable, more engaging and more human.
Moreover, while AI can be used to assist with certain aspects of the writing process, such as research, it cannot replace the role of human creativity, imagination, and the ability to bring a unique perspective to a subject.
In the end, it’s a matter of how we want to use this technology, it can be a powerful tool, but it will not replace the human need for human connection, creativity, and emotions.
Will we change our perception? Towards a postphenomenology?
As a language model, I don’t have personal experiences or perceptions, but I can tell you that the relationship between humans and technology is complex and multifaceted, and it is likely that the increasing capabilities of AI will influence our perception of the world in various ways.
One way in which AI could change our perception is by changing the way we interact with technology. As AI systems become more advanced and more integrated into our daily lives, they could change the way we think about ourselves and our relationship with the world.
Another way in which AI could change our perception is by changing the way we think about the concept of “intelligence” itself. As AI systems become more advanced and more human-like, it could lead us to rethink what we consider to be “intelligent” behavior and what it means for a machine to be “intelligent”.
Postphenomenology is a field that studies how technology affects our perception of the world, and how it shapes our experiences, values, and meaning. It argues that technology is not just a tool that we use, but it also shapes our understanding of the world and our place in it.
In conclusion, as AI systems become more advanced and more integrated into our lives, it’s likely that it will change our perception of the world, and it will shape our understanding of human and machine intelligence, as well as our experience of the world.
Thank you for the interview.
