"Crush" and "a grotesque mockery of what it means to be human".
This is the opinion of Nick Cave, musician and composer, on a song written by the artificial intelligence software Chat Gpt - at the center of a debate between experts and users for weeks - "in the style of Nick Cave" and commissioned by a user.
Cave, as reported by The Guardian, expressed his opinion on the site The Red Hand Files which he often uses to talk about various topics and to answer questions asked by fans.
Tale Mark, from Christchurch, New Zealand, wrote to him: "I asked Chat Gpt to write a song in the style of Nick Cave and this is what he has produced. What do you think?".
Adding after the message, the lyrics of a song.
"With all the love and respect in the world, this song is crap, a grotesque mockery of what it means to be human and I really don't like it," replied the artist who is writing the tracks for the new record. .
"I don't feel the same enthusiasm for this technology - he added - I understand that Chat Gpt is in its infancy, but perhaps this is the emerging horror of Artificial Intelligence: that it will always be in its infancy, as it will always have more and more way to go".
Cave then called Chat Gpt an exercise in "replication as parody", "writing a good song is not imitation, or replication, it's the other way around", she finally observed.
