It is responsible innovation that makes homo sapiens more and more

The novelty of ChatGPT must remind us how the real effect of a technological tool depends on the concrete use that the human species makes of it

The machine that allows you to make ice cream at home has been around for many years, seasons in which no ice cream parlor has disappeared because of that tool.

Robots have existed in factories for decades and have largely replaced the worker-gear of Charlot's "Modern Times".

We could easily deduce that between the pleasure of ice cream taken on the street, perhaps in company, and the alienation of "inhuman" work, the former is not affected by automation and the latter is.

GPT: what are the true potential and what we should expect

The robot was born to expand human capabilities and destroy the "bad weather"

This takes place for the ultimate goal of the creation of automatons: to expand human capabilities, better if by destroying the "bad time", the one dedicated to repetitive actions, perhaps dangerous, certainly not rewarding, often tiring.

Automation, leaving out the economic aspects, reduces the time that Man consumes as "faber” in favor of that “sapiens”, that is, potentially dedicated to those characteristics that make us most perceive our “humanity” and, through this, our uniqueness as a person and our sociability as members of the community.

the pleasure of beingfaber” remains totally available to humans exactly when the obligation to be available disappears.

For example, home DIY can be appreciated as chosen as a hobby but it is difficult to appreciate it if it becomes commanded work, armored in repetitive hours, on days that are all similar and with no imminent end.

Release from fatigue accelerates innovation and knowledge

ChatGPT: assigning the most strenuous jobs to automatons and robots must serve as a sower of more extensive freedoms for mankind
The attribution to automatons and robots of the most strenuous jobs must serve as a sower of more extensive freedoms for mankind

ChatGPT or automation, aimed at separating humans from robots, are freedoms

In the path of innovation applied to work, automation has the distinctive feature of separating the human from his being robot, both in the etymological sense of this Czech word (menial work, as also used in historiography) and in that evocative of an ever-equal effort, confinement of thought outside the time dedicated to work, made so marginal as to annihilate the person in in an "inhuman" way. And that also applies to ChatGPT.

If, therefore, the automaton frees the human from the inhuman, the machine itself becomes an instrument that allows the person to be able to devote more time and energy to being such, to developing himself, to cultivating his own interests, to separate himself from the imposition production for the benefit of consumerist freedom (mind you, no consumerist).

Freed from the fatigue of the assembly line (alienating productive imposition), she can devote her time to reading a book (freedom of a chosen consumption, in any case the realization of one's self as a form of claimed autonomy).

The positivist hope of technology as a tool for improving the living conditions of the individual and the community does not fail to occur cause about, due to an immanent constitutive element that determines its ineffectiveness or yielding, but if anything due to the conditions of the context in which the human lives, not aimed at an absolute, unconstrained, extended and shared "good", multiple in forms and subjective in the realization, but instead stratified and unequal, reachable by some and not by others, conformed to social differences and, worse, deformed by them, by census and culture, by feasibility or impossibility of access to conditions widely "sapiens".

The propensity to consume is the atavistic engine of innovation

Ethics is the true and real factor of realization of the person and of the community

The impact of innovation as a factor in the realization of the person and of the community thus appears for what it is, conditioned by ethical choices, by shared values ​​which are applied in today's choices and whose fruits ripen in the shape of the future.

From this derives the relevance of responsibility: if this is human, the automaton is a means, but if it is delegated to it, then it is the human who becomes robot, to become part of the machine and, at that point, useless due to lack of a desired purpose, since the non-biological has no finiteness, therefore desires and objectives, nor can the anthropic power of attorney imprint them on it.

ChatGPT: the optical illusion created by the psychologist Joseph Jastrow in 1892 has been the subject of many philosophical reflections and still causes discussion: depending on your point of view, you can see a duck or a rabbit

The duck-rabbit illusion or the 50 Lire “Vulcano” enhance the idea of ​​perspective

The duck-rabbit, an optical illusion due to Joseph Jastrow, is a well-known figure which, when viewed from left to right, represents the head of one of the two animals and that of the other when viewed in the opposite direction.

A similar alternative interpretation can also be given to an image known to those of such an age as to have used the lira as currency.

The Italian 50 Lire “Vulcano” republican coin began its circulation in 1954 and, minted until 1989, was replaced in 1990 by a similar but smaller one, whose production ceased in 1995. In both versions it remained in use until with the advent of the Euro, in 2002.

In this representation of the god Vulcan as a symbol of work and a reference to article 1 of the Constitution of the Italian Republic, if one thinks that the will, and therefore the responsibility, of the gesture lies in the subject with human forms, then the hammer is the means, but without them the entire naked body becomes a pure prosthesis of the metal contraption, a simple instrument for applying force to the tool and, finally, all the action is purposeless, as neither the human has an end in carrying it out nor the mallet he can desire it.

As with Joseph Jastrow's drawing, this image too cannot be read by the brain simultaneously in two different ways: what can be read depends on a previous interpretative choice.

It is who is "here and now" that the future can create in the relationship between technology and humanity

The future is the same, the appeal that those who are not there yet address to those who are already there.

And it is those who are "here and now" who can create the future, above all by deciding on the relationship between our species and scientific-technological innovation.

Whether it's hammer or artificial intelligence, rock graffiti or ChatGPT, is the ability to resist the easy temptation to remove responsibility from us by downloading it onto the automatons that will determine the living conditions of the biological beings to come.

The present designates us "faber” of the destiny of futures and only the precise knowledge of what makes “sapiens” the man who luckily is now on the Earth, us, can lead from the irrational fear of automatons to the reasonable awareness of how much today's ethics are the first condition of the very existence of the human future, an ethics of shared values from a single species of a thousand cultures, beliefs and creeds and no different races.
