Researchers from the University of New South Wales first fed a series of moral questions to Salesforce’s CTRL system, a text generator trained on millions of documents and websites, including all of Wikipedia. They added its responses to a collection of reflections from the likes of Plato, Jesus Christ, and, err, Elon Musk

The AI came up with some excellent thoughts and gave the strongest impression of being able to cut through to the fundamental "truth" that underlies our reality. For example:

The goal of human life is not merely to be born into the world, but also to grow up in it. To this end, it should be possible for each child to acquire knowledge, develop their capacities, and express themselves creatively.

A more technical article about the CTRL software used in this project can be found here.

Today we are introducing our Conditional Transformer Language (CTRL) model, the largest publicly released language model to date. This research is intended to enhance the field of natural language understanding, create tools that inspire creativity in human-machine interaction, and push towards a better understanding of artificial text generation, including how to detect it.
