Westover: Chatbots will democratize writing, never replace it

Feb 12, 2023

Dumbledore’s 'Pensive' and Harry’s Patronus are hallmarks of the fathomless depths of the human mind. Everything else is just a facsimile.

Of course, when a skillset is tied to your livelihood, you tend to go worst-case scenario.

Please try again Article content Unless you’ve been living under a rock, or shuttling to space on an entrepreneurial rocket, you’ve likely heard of this open source application with magical possibilities not revealed since Harry Potter burst onto the scene. And yet, it’s precisely because of the brilliance of the wizarding world itself that my initial fears were tamed. But I’ll come back to that. As someone who writes for a living, I never give much thought to the extemporaneous writing that life requires. Bad service? I write a letter. Exceptional service? Ditto. Mishandled insurance claim? Fire off a missive. Concern at my daughter’s school? Whip up an e-mail. Bank trouble? You’ll hear from me.

Imagine arriving in this country with English as a second, or even third language, and struggling to make the complexity of your thoughts known, with access to only limited vocabulary. Or what about the brilliant carpenter, whose hands tell a beautiful story, but whose words are clumsy? Levelling the communication playing field in day-to-day interactions and workaday communications is inclusivity in action. I wonder if there was a similar furor when the calculator hit the mainstream? Were mathematicians gnashing their teeth, worried that years toiling in obscurity, solving for X, were all for naught as the masses got their hands on this tiny tool of democratization? Maybe.

But its invention was never going to make the rest of us into Good Will Hunting. School is a bit trickier, because the art of the essay has been a central tenet of high school and post-secondary education since time immemorial. It’s a means to demonstrate that you can not only consume and synthesize information, but that you can package your thoughts into a nuanced and original interpretation. Educators need to teach to the technology, informing kids they are aware of its existence, and its limitations. How about an assignment assessing the app’s strengths and weaknesses, challenging the assumption that AI knows best? Advertisement 5 Article content Bright young minds are already turning the software on its head, developing an app to identify text written by Chat GPT … so just as quickly as a new platform evolves, a new way to manage it sprouts up. Some people will always be prone to cheating, but in the case of plagiarism, you’re stealing from your own potential, and that’s the message to those students seeking shortcuts. Besides, if we really want to home in on the value of original thought, we can offer exams on paper (gasp!). Maybe one day we’ll be able to channel the wisdom of the universe through a good ol’ orange HB pencil, but until then, universities could always consider a closed room and a ruled notebook. It’s normal to be leery of new technologies, because they always cut both ways. The good news is that Harry Potter wasn’t written by an algorithm or an open source code, but rather by a stressed single mom banging out her dream in the local coffee shop. Dumbledore’s “Pensive” and Harry’s Patronus are hallmarks of the fathomless depths of the human mind. Everything else is just a facsimile. I guess that’s why they call it AI. As long as humans think, writing will be very much alive. Suzanne Westover is an Ottawa writer, not a chatbot.
