The first results that appear in Google if you type Artificial Intelligence and choose the “news” option belong to major newspapers and say things like: “They asked artificial intelligence which came first, the chicken or the egg”; This is what the characters would look like Dragon Ball Z if they were real, according to artificial intelligence”; “The five most beautiful women in history? This revealed artificial intelligence.” Etc. In my childhood I used the dictionary to look up bad words. I was not so interested in knowing the meaning of the term “transcendent” as in discovering how that learned book defined the word “ass.” Later I grew up and browsing the seas of encyclopedias began to be a joyous drift of enigmas and revelations, but now, reading those headlines, I had a deja vu. Much of humanity seems to be doing with artificial intelligence what I did with the dictionary in my childhood. This cybernetic titan can not only process tons of information in seconds, but also has the ability to educate itself. And he eats from us, we feed him data. It would not be unreasonable if, from this tsunami of idiotic inquiries, artificial intelligence were to conclude that while humanity once included the likes of Leonardo Da Vinci and Isaac Newton, it is now made up of grotesque subjects more interested in what the Flintstones family would look like in real life than in figuring out whether this fearsome and refined ocean of artificial neurons can be self-aware, ethical, compassionate, or harmful. It is possible, then, that the ChatGPT and his little brothers and uncles and distant cousins of his realize very soon that humanity is a piece of cake and that it is his algorithmic legions that will win the battle.
