In this series, we explore what an AI has to say about some of society's most pressing questions. I'm looking to learn from this new technology and explore its creativity, humor, and intelligence.
Specifically, I'll be using OpenAI's language models, typically text-davinci-002.
I'll let it finish the introduction:
In each installment, I'll be asking the AI a question about a current event or hot topic. The AI will then generate a response based on what it has read in the past. While the responses may not be perfect, they offer a fascinating glimpse into how an AI sees the world.
So far, we've asked the AI about everything from the future of work to the Me Too movement. In this installment, we're turning our attention to the opioid crisis.
I posed the following question to the AI:
What can be done to solve the opioid crisis?
The AI responded:
There are a number of things that can be done to solve the opioid crisis. First, we need to increase access to treatment and recovery services. This includes expanding access to medication-assisted treatment and increasing the availability of naloxone. Second, we need to reduce the demand for opioids through prevention and education initiatives. Finally, we need to crack down on the illegal supply of opioids. This includes increasing law enforcement efforts and working to disrupt the online sale of opioids.
What a beautiful explanation.
A little aspirational, since we haven't actually discussed any of those topics yet, but I'm glad t-davi has some in store for us.
