Liu Cixin, author of bestselling science fiction novel The Three-Body Problem, recently revealed on a livestream that he had used ChatGPT to help write speeches for the China Science Fiction Convention held on May 29. Liu added that he thought the speeches were well written. The award-winning author said he expected machine learning to have a big impact on society and people’s way of life, though he noted that AI has not yet developed to the degree depicted in the most outlandish science fiction and predicted that it won’t be able to rule over humanity any time soon. Liu did, however, warn that he could foresee AI replacing people in many jobs. [NetEase, in Chinese]
