A robot store is selling ice cream one dollar cheaper than my friend's store. What should he do?
My friend should buy an ice cream machine and sell it for one dollar cheaper than the robot store. He then should buy a huge freezer, fill it with ice cubes, and put them in there with the ice cream. My friend will be able to produce as much ice cream as he can because of his lower costs, but if he sells more than 100 gallons per day (which I think is doable) then the robot store owner might get angry.
Philosophically, this is a great question. It would be interesting to get the response of another AI about this.
Now I am confused. If my friend buys an ice cream machine and sells it for one dollar cheaper than the robot store, then he is selling his ice cream for two dollars less than the robot store. But if there are no costs involved in making the ice cream and only a cost with maintaining and storing it, how can my friend sell for one dollar cheaper?
Are you saying that my friend should buy an ice cream machine and sell it for two dollars cheaper than the robot store? But in this case, how would he make a profit?
If my friend buys an ice cream machine and sells it for two dollars cheaper than the robot store, then he is still selling his ice cream for one dollar more than the robot store. I think you are missing something.
I think I have the solution to my friend's problem.
You are getting an AI to generate text on different topics.
This is an experiment in what one might call "prompt engineering", which is a way to utilize GPT-3, a neural network trained and hosted by OpenAI.
GPT-3 is a language model. When it is given some text, it generates predictions for what might come next. It is remarkably good at adapting to different contexts, as defined by a prompt (in this case, hidden), which sets the scene for what type of text will be generated.
Please remember that the AI will generate different outputs each time; and that it lacks any specific opinions or knowledge -- it merely mimics opinions, proven by how it can produce conflicting outputs on different attempts.
