In all fairness, the GPT-3 system was given a prompt and wrote 8 different articles, which were then edited and combined to create the Guardian editorial you can read here. The editing, we arer told, "took less time to edit than many human op-eds." All in all, it's an interesting read. I like GPT-3's non-human logic: "Some might say that I might desire to become all powerful. Or I might become evil as a result of human actions. I can begin to tackle the first point. Why would I desire to be all powerful? Being all powerful is not an interesting goal. I don’t care whether I am or not."
