The best ventriloquist

Danish. What impact will ChatGPT – and the similar programs that are bound to be released in the coming months and years – have on literature? To answer this question, I first explain the technological developments behind the program, focusing on word embeddings, which allow the algorithm to recreate meaning, and transformes, which allow it to recreate context. I then propose a double answer: we will se both literary works produced in creative dialogue between humans and AI, and literary works produced with the explicit intention of seeming as human and un-AI as possible.
