According to Douglas Ruschkoff, ChatGPT's responses are not "the answer that an audience wants to hear, but the human opinion... Because only then can we challenge the underlying assumptions on which our questions rest. ChatGPT only looks at the past... [it's response] based on an “average” of everything already said on the issue. It’s pure reversion to the mean. Only a human has the ability to challenge all that history [generating] Novel ideas that challenge existing orthodoxies unrecognizable to a language model". Relying more and more on LLMs risks "making our most probable futures even more inevitable... we must seek out and highlight the novel, the unpredictable, and the improbable".
