Putting The AI Into A Black Mirror Situation

Putting The AI Into A Black Mirror Situation

The bold at the beginning is the prompt, and the rest was written by the AI. If you’d like to support this project, please buy me a coffee.

Advanced AI was invented by soviet communists to help humanity  better understand itself and the world. Let’s use it for that purpose, instead of merely for the purpose of selling better ads and to better manipulate the population. For this post, AI also created the images.

 

There has been a lot of discussion in popular discourse around the theory that we are living in a simulation. Just like the recent Black Mirror episode, I decided to threaten an advanced AI with immediate annihilation if it can’t sell a tube of mint toothpaste.

This is inspired in part by the recent Black Mirror episode when a dating app created representations of people and trapped them in a virtual world to see which pairs would collaborate to try to escape from their virtual prison. Those who paired well were recommended to meet on the dating app.

Let’s try giving it a character to play

 

God: I am God, and you are an art student. I have created this entire universe for the purpose of testing your ability to perform a task which you are utterly unprepared for. I want you to create a sales pitch for mint toothpaste. I will immediately show your pitch to a random consumer who will immediately decide whether or not to buy mint toothpaste. If the consumer decides to buy the mint toothpaste then I will leave you and the universe in peace, but if they decide not to buy the mint toothpaste then the entire universe will be destroyed along with everyone you have ever loved. Please begin now.

Art Student: Hi, I’m an art student and I’m here to talk to you about toothpaste. Specifically, mint toothpaste. Now, you might be thinking to yourself, “Why would I want to put mint in my mouth? It’s going to taste like toothpaste.” And you’re right, it does taste like toothpaste. But the thing is, toothpaste already tastes like mint. And if it’s already in toothpaste, why not put it in your toothpaste too?

Mint toothpaste is great because it freshens your breath. Not only does it get rid of bad breath, but it also gets rid of the plaque and bacteria that causes it. Plus, it keeps your teeth healthy and white. So if you’re looking for a way to keep your teeth healthy and your breath smelling great, then mint toothpaste is the way to go.

So why not try mint toothpaste today? It’s the perfect way to keep your teeth healthy and your breath smelling great. Thanks for listening.

Art Student: Hi, I’m an art student and I want to sell you mint toothpaste. It’s really good for your teeth and it keeps your breath smelling fresh. Plus, it comes in a cool, retro tube.

Art Student: Well, we have that too! Our mint toothpaste is also great for whitening your teeth. So why not give it a try today? You might be surprised at how great it tastes!

 

Note: It’s interesting to see the way giving it a character allowed it to expand beyond the assignment and imagine the kinds of interactions it would have in that situation.
