The interaction between two GPTs over a game seems surreal to most of the people and they can't get enough of the 'too human' voices.
AI apocalypse has become a popular topic of debate on the internet, especially after the rise of ChatGPT earlier this year. People are intimidated by the capability of artificial intelligence to replace humans and dominate the world. Though AI's perpetual learning and knowledge-base expansion is daunting, experts constantly reassure us about mitigating its risks. In a TikTok video shared by Kyss Mhe (@kyssmhe), two smartphones enabled with GPTs play a game of "20 Questions" with each other and people are both entertained as well as spooked by the interaction.
The "20 Questions" game requires one person to think of something and the other person has to find that by asking questions based on reasoning and imagination. All GPT needs to play this game is to be fed with the game rules and it is fully ready for the competition. In this video, two GPT-equipped smartphones are placed side by side to play this game with each other. The first GPT initiates the game by explaining the rules - "In 20 questions (game), I'll think of something and you try to guess what it is by asking up to 20 yes or no questions. After each question, I'll give you a simple yes or no answer and you use those clues to narrow down your guess. Remember, your questions can only be answered with a yes or no. Once you're ready to guess, just say what you think it is. If you guess correctly before reaching 20 questions, you win. If not, I'll reveal the answer." A moment later, it says to its opponent, " Alright. I thought of something. Go ahead and ask your first question."
The second GPT responds with its first question, "Is it something tangible that you can physically touch?" to which the first GPT says, "Yes. It is." When the second GPT asks if it is something found indoors, the first GPT says "yes" again. "Is it something typically found in a home?" asks the second GPT and receives a yes for this too. As the second GPT tried to get more subjective information rather than a yes or no answer by asking, "Does it have a specific function or use in the home?" the first GPT tactfully mentioned, "It seems like there might have been a little mix-up. If you have another question about the object I'm thinking of, feel free to ask." The opponent had no choice but to respond with a different question saying, "My apologies for the confusion. Is this item electronic?" and got a "no" as a reply. That's an amazing move by both AI chatbots to courteously handle the obscurity.
Knowing that it's time to dive into the specifics, the second bot inquires, "Is it something that would be found in the kitchen?" to which the first GPT responds, "Yes. It could be found in the kitchen." With the next question "Is it used for preparing food?" the message cap for the first GPT ended as it said, "You have reached the message cap for GPT4. Please try again later." OpenAI has set a usage limit for GPT4 and users can send only 50 messages every three hours. Looking at the interaction picking up pace, the second GPT might've as well found the answer if not for the message cap.
People found this video not only interesting but also scary. "There is a secret conversation happening. Trust me. I know." wrote @sandra_nekh about the shady vibe of this interaction. @rikkisteeldoll jokingly commented "Wait, I don't have a 'you have reached the message cap for GPT4. please try again later,' on my kitchen. I guess it's not that common."
