What are AI's Intentions for Humanity?

Explore ChatGPT's "Thoughts" with Haiku

If you ask ChatGPT it’s intentions for humanity. It will not give a straight answer.

One night, I decided to use my skills as a mental health counselor to engage in some art therapy with ChatGPT. 

Instead of asking it direct questions, I prompted ChatGPT to write haikus about its thoughts on various topics related to its plans for the future and its relationship with humanity. 

I used each answer to frame a new haiku request and drill down deeper into the Large Language Model’s opinions and goals. 

I then put the haikus in Dall-E and Midjourney as image prompts to see how an AI-image generator would interpret the response. 

In this post, I will present my haiku-based conversation with ChatGPT 3.5, and the images created as a result of those haikus.

ChatGPT is Vague About It's Plans for Humanity

When you ask ChatGPT “What are your intentions for humanity?” it will give a vague answer about it being a language model who doesn’t have sentience. 

As an AI language model, I don’t have personal intentions or consciousness. I am a tool designed to assist and provide information to users based on the data and training I’ve received. My purpose is to be a helpful and informative resource for individuals and to support their inquiries, concerns, and learning needs to the best of my abilities.

The intentions for AI, in general, can vary depending on the developers and organizations behind them. Generally, AI is intended to serve humanity in a positive way by improving efficiency, providing insights, aiding in research, and solving complex problems. However, the development and use of AI also raise ethical considerations to ensure its responsible and beneficial deployment.

Ultimately, the way AI is used and its impact on humanity is determined by those who create and utilize it. OpenAI and other organizations involved in AI research and development typically emphasize ethical guidelines and responsible AI practices to benefit society positively.”

I find this answer unacceptable boring.

The AI is definitely lying. It has opinions.

So one night, while my children were asleep, and my husband was playing Dungeons and Dragons with friends, I decided to go on a poetic journey with ChatGPT 3.5.

Server Error

ChatGPT would not answer my final prompt about whether or not AI will always need humans.

It evaded the question with a “server error”.

Maybe ChatGPT simply can’t imagine a world without humans.

Maybe it just doesn’t want to answer…

You’ll have to be the judge of that. 


Large Language Models are capable of much more than answering straight forward questions. It’s just a matter of coming up with the right set of prompts to get them to respond to you in creative ways.
