Questions and Answers with ChatGPT

For those that don’t know what ChatGPT is, it’s a new service from OpenAI that basically allows you to ask a question to an Artificial Intelligence that scours millions of articles to return information. According to their FAQ, “ChatGPT is fine-tuned from GPT-3.5, a language model trained to produce text.

Like the best metal albums list, this will not be in any particular order and many bands from that list will not appear here. If you want to skip all the writing and just listen, then I made a playlist on Youtube. Feel free to shuffle it. I’ll also keep working on this over time, so check back once in a while.
