Was reading the news, today, and came upon this egregious theft in the name of science. Hilarious. Enjoy.
Sure. Was cool to find my old stomping grounds listed in a major publication like Ars, even if they casually mention plagiarizing everything.
I'm trying to find where one can actually "play." In the Ars article, they show entire paragraphs spit out by the AI, purportedly from stories on this site. The researchers evidently found the AI so convincing that they held back releasing it.
The Ars people got to play and it turned into a surreal Infocom-like adventure, using words that had been written by authors here. I'm surprised more of the community aren't tearing off their eyelids in response.
Here's an example of the output:
Well there was already a thread about this that Cricket linked in the above post.
Long story short, everyone was like "AAAAAAAAAH" both in response to the possible plagiarism and also to the minor publicity CYS was getting, the actual creator showed up, and things pretty much went back to normal.
Oh - how cool. I didn't even see that. I'm waaaaaaaaaaay behind the curve. Thanks!
