It can even create (somewhat correct) GP Scripts.


I agree.

It works for Python or Matlab, but for GPScript too? Really?

I didn’t check if it actually works.

Probably not exactly what an experienced GPScript would do, but very impressive. How many GP users would be able to produce this?…


I also would need to check examples or check the documentation, so it’s easier to let ChatGPT make some ‘example’, even when it’s wrong and then to adjust it to my needs.

It’s mostly even faster to let it generate than to look it up (although the documentation is very good, note that ChatGPT probably also just gets its info mostly from the documentation and examples).

The free ChatGPT bot’s engine is 3.5
There is a newer, premium v4 engine that can allegedly do things waaaay better.

(this plan is generated with the free engine)

I asked exactly the same question and this is what Bing Chat came up with.
( Bing does not use ChatGPT, but it does use GPT-4)

It may be powered by OpenAI. But can it run ELIZA ?
