As AI technology develops, more humans are seeking advice for their investment choices in AI chatbots – and even AI-powered versions of the world’s biggest religious figures.
GPT-4, the latest version of ChatGPT, took the world by storm last month, when users were discovering the capabilities of what artificial intelligence (AI) can do,
According to GPT-4’s developer OpenAI, the latest version of the highly influential AI language model boasts “human-level performance on various professional and academic benchmarks,” including the ability to search for vulnerabilities and exploits in Ethereum smart contracts.
While AI boasts many merits that can reach a wide audience to make lives easier, ChatGPT can’t do it all.
At the time of writing, the AI has difficulty with giving out answers regarding the current price of well-known cryptos like Bitcoin, spitting out a message saying it “cannot provide real-time information on the price of Bitcoin as [its] training data only goes up until September 2021.”
Furthermore, any user can find the price of any coin of their choice with a quick internet search. Users cannot access real-time information with ChatGPT, and this alone is one of its main weaknesses.
Then what can AI do for investors?
If investors are looking to explore their options in making investment decisions, maybe ChatGPT isn’t the best platform to look for an answer. However in the meantime, it can provide some lighthearted entertainment with some bonus cautions for investment decisions.
Upon being asked for Bitcoin price predictions, the AI cautions that “cryptocurrency prices are highly volatile and can change rapidly,” following with advice for the reader to “keep up to date with the latest market trends and news when investing in cryptocurrencies.” Even AI recognises the importance of DYOR!
There’s been a recent trend where humans have been creating AI bots in the image of religious figures around the world. So, if AI technology can’t give an answer, why not ask an AI bot trained through Large Language Models with the teachings of gods to get divine answers?
With divine bots like AI Jesus, AI Buddha, ShivaBot, KrishnaAI, and even a Robo Rabbi, sites providing AI-powered divination services have been gaining popularity very quickly.
Gita GPT, a site featuring a dozen Indian gods powered by Turbo GPT 3.5, apparently suffered from success according to the developer Vikas Sahu. Within a matter of days after its February launch, Gita GPT had 10,000 users per day from a worldwide audience, to get wisdom from the Bhagavad Gita.
The mass use of Gita GPT soon resulted in the site being down last week, with Sahu saying “people in India are very fond of such chatbots, and we will soon make it live by the end of this week.”Meanwhile, upon asking Jesus GPT on crypto investment advice, the AI refuses to give any answers.
Upon asking the Quran GPT, the bot gives us an anecdote and lesson from our question.
Meanwhile, after asking Hotoke AI, an AI trained on the teachers of Buddha, we got a pretty lengthy, chatty reply, exploring different perspectives on what to do next.
That being said, it wouldn’t be surprising to see more people going on AI-based divinity platforms to feel a bit more at ease and reassured regarding their crypto investment decisions.
