"AI Dungeon ... used text-generation technology ... OpenAI to create a choose-your-own adventure game inspired by D&D... algorithms crafting a personalized, unpredictable adventure".
This is a huge creative playground: over 20,000 players each day; one player "claims to have written an estimated total of more than 1 million words with the AI’s help... "it allowed me to explore aspects of my psyche that I never realized existed"".
Inevitably(?) players "caused the game to generate stories depicting sexual encounters involving children". But the new auto-moderation system rolled out in response meant users "could not refer to an “8-year-old laptop” without triggering a warning message"... while manual reviews would "needlessly snoop on private, fictional creations ... involving only adults".
Problem: OpenAI " is capable of ... startling mimicry, but doesn’t understand social, legal, or genre categories... It’s really hard to know how these models are going to behave in the wild”
