    very few worthwhile tasks?

    What is a “worthwhile task”?

    [highlighting added]


    The more I look at chatGPT, the more I think that the fact NLP didn’t work very well until recently blinded us to the fact that very few worthwhile tasks can be described in 2-3 sentences typed in or spoken in one go. It’s the same class of error as pen computing.

    1. Reddy (1979):

      Human communication will almost always go astray unless real energy is expended.
