Random quote Don’t we all know how relatively easy it has always been to lose at least the habit, if not the faculty of thinking? Nothing more is needed than to live in constant distraction and never leave the company of others. Hannah Arendt (1906-1975 ..read more

At first sight, programs like OpenAI, with its sections ChatGPT for making texts and DALL.E for making images, seem a step forward in human development, despite all criticism you can make against them. Maybe the present shortcomings of such programs will only be temporary and once its flaws have been improved, they will be powerful tools for making life better. Boring text writing tasks, for example, can be left to machines, and humans will get more freedom for real creativity. That is possible, indeed. Many technical developments have made life better. On the other hand, there is also a dar ..read more

Big Brother style van Gogh according to DALL.E (OpenAI)  The new chatbot of OpenAI, ChatGPT, has dazzled the world with its ability to write texts (and to make images as well). More and more students use it for making their assignments. Schools and universities hit back with special software in order to detect artificially written texts, since they are seen as fraud. Some Australian universities have even decided that students must write their exams again with paper and pencil instead of with a computer. Artificial Intelligence may make life easier, but it has also brought a new kind of ..read more

Since the introduction of the Internet, teachers and university professors complain that their students copy and paste text from web pages for their study assignments. Therefore, teachers and professors often use special software for detecting this kind of fraud. Since the recent introduction of OpenAI it is to be expected that this problem will grow, for this program can even write complete texts after you have given it some hints what to write about. As I showed in a blog last month, these texts are often not bad and can be used as the basis for a simple essay, an article or a blog. Noneth ..read more

Everyone knows it: the intelligence test or IQ test. You do the test, which is quite complicated, however, and then you get a score: The Intelligence Quotient or IQ. An IQ of 100 is an average score, so if your score is more than 100, you are more intelligent than average, and 125 is already a very good result. If your score is below 100, you are less intelligent than average and an IQ of 80 is already quite low. Simple, isn’t it? Everybody a score and we know his or her abilities. Really? Psychologists knew already that it’s not that simple. For example, what exactly is intelligence? Isn’t ..read more

War memorial shaped like an altar in Sainte-Marie-à-Py (dep. Marne, France) for commemorating the civilian and military residents who died in both World Wars Wilfred Owen (1893-1918) was the most famous British war poet. As I have written in a recent blog, he was killed in action, on 4 November 1918, one week before the end of the First World War, in Ors (Nord department) in Northern France. (see my blog dated 5 August 2022 and the next one) Owen’s poems on the First World War apply in many cases to the present Ukraine-Russia War as well. Therefore, now and then I have quoted and will quote ..read more
