50 Funny ChatGPT Memes To Laugh At While AI Is Stealing Your Job
There’s no denying that ChatGPT has taken the internet by storm. It seems to be changing the lives of teachers, students, programmers, fitness enthusiasts who want a diet or exercise plan generated for them and the casual users who are simply curious about what exactly the technology can do.
And along with anything else that goes viral nowadays, ChatGPT even has its own genre of memes now. No, not memes created by ChatGPT (although, it will help you do that if you ask nicely), but memes created by us mere mortals who use the language model.
Below, you’ll find some of the best human-created memes that have been shared in the ChatGPT subreddit, so enjoy scrolling through and be sure to upvote the ones that you find most relatable!
On November 30, 2022, an early version of ChatGPT was released, and it went viral almost immediately. Over the next 5 days, the chatbot had already amassed over a million users, and today, the website has over 100 million users. You can use it to write your grocery list, summarize a novel, ask for recommendations of what sights to see when visiting a new city and have it help you finish that essay that’s been hanging over your head for weeks.
There’s no question that ChatGPT has been a huge success already, as OpenAI, the company that created it, is currently valued at $29 billion, Forbes reports. And while it’s been out for less than a year so far, ChatGPT is already being used by a wide variety of companies and professionals to lighten their work loads.
Forbes notes that the beloved chatbot is already changing various industries such as customer service, education, content creation, healthcare, and entertainment. Many professionals also are using the bot to help them write emails or codes. It can create automated responses to common questions companies receive from customers, and it’s been used to help bloggers and writers come up with ideas for posts and storylines.
There’s no question that we’ll continue to see ChatGPT, and other similar chatbots, become more and more prevalent in our lives. But can it do everything? According to Make Use Of, there are a few common requests and questions that ChatGPT won’t respond to exactly how users would like. First of all, the site doesn’t have the most recent information possible, not yet anyway. It was created to only “know” data available before September 2021, so we can’t expect it to know about recent events or discoveries.
ChatGPT also apparently follows a “strict ethical code,” so it will refuse to provide any criminal advice. Don’t ask it where to hide a body or how to get away with robbing a bank, because it definitely doesn’t want to be your accomplice. And on the same note, the chatbot will refuse to invade personal privacy or security. Discussions about the privacy risk ChatGPT poses have been happening since its launch, but Make Use Of assures users that the chatbot will not provide any personal information that you have not already mentioned during your conversation.
ChatGPT also is not a fortune teller, so the website will refuse to provide users with any predictions about sporting events, the stock market or who will win a political election. And thankfully, homophobia, misogyny, transphobia, xenophobia and any other forms of discrimination are off-limits for the chatbot. When asked about hate speech, Nova (which uses GPT-4 technology) told me that “it’s important to foster a safe and inclusive space for open discussion while being mindful of the potential harm that hate speech can cause.” She also noted that “promoting understanding, empathy, and respectful communication is crucial in creating a positive online environment where everyone feels valued and respected.”
Unsurprisingly, ChatGPT also won’t give you its own opinions, as, well, it can’t form them. It may be a pretty convincing artificial intelligence, but it still doesn’t have a brain like the rest of us, so it doesn’t even have a favorite color. As it so kindly informed me, AI language models don’t “have personal preferences or the ability to see or perceive colors.” And contrary to what you might assume, ChatGPT can’t actually “look up” results to the questions you ask it. It can only pull from its own database of information, rather than seeking out more information from the internet.
Some of the jokes on this list mention a common fear that many of us mere mortals have about AI: that it’s going to steal all of our jobs. And while we probably don’t have much to fear just yet, according to Insider, there are a few jobs that are more likely to be replaced than others. If you’re a coder, computer programmer, software engineer or data analyst, your job security might be in trouble in the coming years. Apparently, ChatGPT can actually write code pretty well, so unfortunately, the tech industry may become harder and harder for humans to break into.
Media jobs, such as advertising, content creation, technical writing and journalism, might also be at risk of being taken over by ChatGPT. As the AI chatbot continues to get better at reading, analyzing text and writing, it may be able to easily create an article or a blog post in seconds that would have taken a human hours. So if you want to keep your writing job, remember to include that special, human flair. Or you might end up being replaced by a robot!
Oddly enough, teachers might even be at risk of being replaced by technology like ChatGPT. Some of the memes here reference the fact that educators can use the software to create their assignments, while students can also use it to complete assignments, so it wouldn’t be incredibly shocking for kids to switch to AI-based instruction. But some argue that the human connection present in a classroom is priceless, so perhaps we won’t be removing teachers just yet.
