Leveraging AI Creativity

On The Technological Edge

               Leveraging AI Creativity

Recently, Hollywood writers have gone on strike, and one of the issues with the writers is the fear AI will replace them. AI has the potential to replace certain writers, yet the writers who might be replaced would be a writer who might be subpar. Sure this sounds scary or does it? Maybe the upside is that AI will assist subpar writers to help increase their writing skills by helping writers to develop new ideas at a much quicker pace.

Fear of the unknown is always going to initiate the mob mentality, and the torches have been lit. The mob is gathering and heading toward AI, looking for mob-style justice. All technological advancement brings forth new challenges, and AI will be no different. In the case of the writers, the fear may be unfounded.

Source CBS News:

“Specifically, the union wants its collective bargaining contract to guarantee that:

  • AI won't write or rewrite literary material.
  • AI won't be used as source material.
  • Union-covered material won't be used to train AI.”

Harvesting the power of AI is not an easy undertaking, and just accessing ChatGPT is not going to give you a sense of the true power of AI. Many factors are in play with AI, learning how to interact with AI to achieve the desired results, using coding languages such as JSON and Python, and understanding how to direct AI on specific tasks and functions. Analyzing results and making corrections to produce the correct logical outputs.

If you visit ChatGPT and begin typing, it is not much different than going to Google and doing a search, and you will get an answer. As with Google, there are countless ways to approach, refine and modify your search criteria and the same holds true with AI.

One of the test projects I have been working on is developing new languages for D&D (Dungeons & Dragons), I know sounds nerdy, but I decided to begin with the creation of a language of Dragons. The idea is to use my criteria of how I picture the language's structure, how it developed, constructs, intellectualism, and more.  I set my criteria within AI to be creative and applied what is known as a temperature of 1. The temperature command allows the user to control the creativeness/uniqueness of many AI models on a scale of 0-1. We can look at this as 0 being the least creative and most consistent output, where 1 can be considered the most creative and random output.

Here is a sample of what AI created, please understand that there is a lot more going on here as it is building the entire language construct based on what I direct it to do.

AI-Generated Output

With the foundation in place, let's proceed to develop and refine the dragon language further. We'll provide more vocabulary examples, create sample sentences, and discuss how to express complex ideas in this language.

  1. Sample ChatGPT Output **Additional Vocabulary:**

- Word for "dragon": drakenva (from English "drake" and Latin "invidia")

- Word for "water": aquanis (from Latin "aqua" and Greek "néfos")

- Word for "earth": terroth (from Latin "terra" and Old Norse "joð")

- Word for "air": vantaris (from Latin "ventus" and Arabic "tariq")

- Word for "magic": arcanys (from Latin "arcānus" and Greek "mystikós")

 

  1. **Sample Sentences:**

 

- Drakenva lavreth zeluth kairel. (The dragon speaks about fire in the sky.)

- Shol Drakenva aquanis terroth arcanys kairel. (Elder Dragon discusses water, earth, and magic.)

- Kryth Drakenva zeluth vantaris kairel. (Royal Dragon talks about the sky and air.)

 

  1. **Expressing Complex Ideas:**

 

To express complex ideas in the dragon language, you can use:

 

- Subordinate clauses: Combine sentences with conjunctions like "krel" (and), "vith" (but), or "nar" (because) to express complex relationships between ideas.

- Modifiers: Use adjectives, adverbs, and quantifiers to provide more specific information about nouns and verbs.

- Conditional sentences: Use conditional constructions to express hypothetical situations or cause-and-effect relationships (e.g., "If the sky is red, the fire will spread.")

 

Let us assume for a moment that I am not good at creative writing, but I am good at creating ideas, AI can bridge the gap between placing thought to paper. A tool to visualize my ideas and put them to life, and this is not something we should shun. Maybe the fear is warranted, but could it be misguided and we should be exploring the possibilities? 

As humans, we tend to throw stones at the unknown, yet we also try to explore the unknown. Let us not throw stones and enter the world of AI exploration and its possible uses, but use caution, not fear to decide what should and not should be done. Protectionism stifles creativity and advancement in society, and maybe it is time we evolve, since Artificial Intelligence is here to stay.
