This is an intriguing capacity, which we would like to include in future investigations… [Its] focus bears on content and meaning and not so much on superficial characteristics. These qualities can be exploited to boost computational humour applications.” Why it matters: ChatGPT’s success in November 2022 brought Artificial Intelligence into focus across the globe. However, the model’s system still fails to meet the requirements of “open science” by keeping data, training details and model characteristics private.
