Nick Cave slams ‘travesti’ at ChatGPT in San Francisco

Nick Cave, the iconic Australian rocker who led Bad Seeds, had a lot to say about ChatGPT, the text chat Technique Developed by Buzzy San Francisco Start OpenAI.

in Message posted Monday In his newsletter “The Red Hand Files”, Cave spoke of the humanity of art, the “emerging horror of artificial intelligence” and ChatGPT’s “grotesque satire” of his work.

A fan in New Zealand sent him a song “written” by the already notorious Bot in the style of Keef’s work. To say that the songwriter was dissatisfied with the song would understate his anger.

Cave begins by noting that he has been sent various iterations of the “As Written by Nick Cave” songs over and over. Honestly, Keef says the song in question is “nasty.”

“What ChatGPT is, in this case, is replication as a hoax. ChatGPT may be able to write a letter, article, sermon, or obituary but it can’t create a real song,” he wrote in perhaps one of the technology’s most brutal callouts. “Perhaps in time a song can be created that is superficially indistinguishable from an original, but which will always be an exact copy, a kind of irony.”

Cave continues to stress the necessity of a human being behind the creation of art and music. He writes that humans necessarily have an advantage over technology in that they can “offer … the transcendent journey of the artist who is forever grappling with his imperfections.”

“ChatGPT has no internal entity, has not been anywhere, has not tolerated anything, and has not had the audacity to transgress its limits, hence it does not have the capacity for a shared transcendental experience, as there are no restrictions of who is to be transgressed,” he wrote.

As a working musician, Cave has some in-game appearance to ensure that the computer doesn’t replace his art. He also seems deeply skeptical about modern technology in his work. (For example, the 2013 song “We No Who UR” is partly about what he described in an interview with the Guardian as the “horrific” nature of texting).

Cave is one of the first high-profile musicians to rally against ChatGPT and AI-ification of the art. But as OpenAI is collapsing in Microsoft’s product line — and artists of all shapes continue to rally against OpenAI, Medjourney And other AI art producers – it won’t be the last.

OpenAI, where Microsoft is said to be investing $10 billion, did not immediately respond to a request for comment from SFGATE.
