Maybe we can sic ChatGPT on our trolls.Prompt: Act as if you have an electrical engineering degree, and explain why there is no difference between two different RCA cables.
As an electrical engineer, I can tell you that there is no discernible difference between two RCA cables as long as they meet the basic standards for signal transmission.
RCA cables are a type of coaxial cable that transmit analog audio signals. The important characteristics of an RCA cable include its impedance, capacitance, and shielding. As long as these characteristics are within the acceptable range, the cable will transmit the audio signal without any distortion or loss of quality.
While there may be differences in the materials used to manufacture RCA cables, such as the quality of the copper or the thickness of the insulation, these differences are unlikely to have any measurable effect on the audio signal.
Furthermore, the audio quality of a system is determined by many factors beyond just the cables, such as the quality of the audio source, the amplifiers and speakers used, and the acoustic environment in which the system is located.
In short, while there may be some differences in the construction and materials of different RCA cables, as long as they meet the basic requirements for signal transmission, there should be no discernible difference in the audio quality between them.
The weighting it gives seems to be dependent on the wording of the question. The data it is fed includes a wide range of opinions on any subject. So unless the algorithm is tweaked to deal with the subject, answers to questions will eventually favour any bias in those questions.Yes, I understand how transformer networks work. ChatGPT will not 'hone' in on 'what I want to hear, it will simply respond according to the data it was trained on. So, taking your example, me wanting to hear that 'The Earth is flat' will not force or 'hone' GPT to give me an answer other than 'the earth is round'. So yes - unlikely to be significant in most cases means significant in some cases, which is pretty much saying not much at all. I do find it interesting though that GPT follows the 'consensus' opinion, while the 'cables don't have a sound' data - which surely it must have been trained on - seems to be weighted less.
