When Alan Turing came up with the Turing Test in 1950, it was a test of a machine’s ability to exhibit intelligent behavior indistinguishable from that of a human. Turing proposed that a computer can be said to possess artificial intelligence (AI) if it can create human-like responses to questions.
Thanks to large language models, we’re now at the point where computers can write text on just about any subject we give them — and for the most part, it’s very convincing and human-like.
Tell it to write a sentence on, “Why does Elon Musk like to knit?” and what it outputs is arguably as good as what any human could write:
Some possible reasons why Elon Musk might enjoy knitting could include the fact that it is a relaxing and meditative activity that can help to clear one’s mind, and it also allows for a great deal of creativity and self-expression.
Additionally, knitting can be a very social activity, and Elon Musk may enjoy the opportunity to chat and connect with other knitters.

Summarizing complex text
Examples like this are fun, but the bigger value proposition of using large language models is less about writing wacky prose and more about the summarization of complex text. These use cases are exciting across industries. For instance, AI can distill information about potential prospects for sales intelligence purposes, or it can summarize investment documents in finance.
