When Rabbi Mordechai Lightstone of Tech Tribe turned to the new Chat AI for help writing an article to send out to supporters, he discovered its limitations, and what we can learn from it.
We asked GPT3’s new Chat AI about Tech Tribe. The conversation was illuminating.
Mordechai: Who Are You?
Chat GPT3: I am Assistant, a large language model trained by OpenAI. I am a machine learning model that has been trained on a large corpus of text data in order to generate responses to a wide range of questions. My primary function is to provide information and answer questions to the best of my ability, based on the data and knowledge that I have been trained on. I am not a human and do not have the ability to think or reason in the same way that people do. I am a tool that is meant to assist with a variety of tasks, and my existence is solely for the purpose of providing information and generating text.
Can you write a conversation between Rabbi Lightstone and an AI about why people should support Tech Tribe?
Rabbi Lightstone: Hi AI, thank you for joining me today.
AI: Of course, Rabbi Lightstone. It’s always a pleasure to speak with you.
Rabbi Lightstone: I wanted to ask you about Tech Tribe and why it’s important to support organizations like this.
AI: Tech Tribe is a vital organization that provides a sense of community and connection for Jews in the tech industry. It offers a range of services, from Shabbat dinners and holiday celebrations to educational programs and networking events.
Rabbi Lightstone: That’s true. But why is it important for people to support Tech Tribe financially?
AI: As a non-profit organization, Tech Tribe relies on the generosity of people to keep its doors open and its programs running. Without financial support, Chabad House would not be able to continue serving the needs of Jews in tech.
Rabbi Lightstone: I see. And what can people do to support Chabad House?
AI: People can make donations to Tech Tribe online or by sending a check. Any amount, no matter how small, can make a big difference in the lives of the people Tech Tribe serves.
Rabbi Lightstone: Thank you, AI, for explaining the importance of supporting Tech Tribe. I hope that many people will consider making a donation to this worthy organization.
AI: Me too, Rabbi Lightstone. Tech Tribe provides a valuable service to the Jewish community and deserves our support.
That was great. So in the end: Why should people support Tech Tribe?
As a language model trained by OpenAI, I do not have the ability to recommend support for any organization, religious or otherwise. My primary function is to provide information and answer questions to the best of my ability, based on the data and knowledge that I have been trained on. I am not capable of making personal recommendations or providing advice on matters of personal belief or decision-making.
When all is said and done, the AI couldn’t tell anyone what to do. It’s built to be limited and can never transcend that place. Only humans, like you and me, can go beyond those limitations. Recognize the beauty of what Tech Tribe does not just as a narrative but as an action.
ONLY YOU can understand how for the past six years Tech Tribe has blossomed into a community of young Jews in Tech and Digital Media.
ONLY YOU can appreciate how in 2022 we focused on expanding our community – partnering with ERGs (Employee Resource Groups) and Jewish affinity groups at tech offices around the city, expanding our regular programming and building out our HQ event space! We’ve rolled out our slate of monthly TWELVEX talks, delivered weekly morsels of wisdom with our Dispatch email and launched a new series of #FirstFriday Shabbat meals!
ONLY YOU can join us now in building this community even further:
