I wanted to write a story with a photograph of a mountain lion I had taken. My story would be a first-hand account of a young man hearing a mountain lion scream for the first time. But being in education, I had heard about ChatGpt by Open AI could be used to write stories and papers. So I decided to give it a try. I then took what ChatGpt had produced and ran it through Grammarly for correction. Below is the result. Again this story is not written by me but by AI technology.
A young man named Jake lived in a small cabin in the woods. Jake was an avid adventurer and loved exploring the vast forests surrounding his home. However, despite his travels, he had never heard the scream of a mountain lion.
One clear night, as Jake was sitting outside his cabin, he suddenly heard a blood-curdling scream that echoed through the forest. The sound was like nothing he had ever heard, sending chills down his spine. He was immediately curious and decided to search for the scream’s source.
Jake took his flashlight and set out into the dark woods, his heart racing with excitement. He had always heard stories about the power and ferocity of mountain lions, and he couldn’t wait to see one in person.
As he approached a clearing in the forest, Jake saw a silhouette of a large cat atop a nearby rock. The cat let out another deafening scream, and Jake finally realized he was standing face-to-face with a mountain lion.
The experience was both exhilarating and frightening for Jake. Still, he couldn’t help but be in awe of the magnificent creature before him. The mountain lion’s scream was powerful yet beautiful, leaving a lasting impression on Jake.
From that day on, every time Jake heard a mountain lion’s scream, he was reminded of his incredible encounter in the woods and the awe-inspiring beauty of nature.
End ChatGPT story.
I don’t know what to make of AI technology yet. But I did play around with it, asking questions. It can be beneficial, I think. If you want step-by-step instructions on how to do something, it is terrific, much better than asking Google to list a bunch of websites you have to scroll through. I should ask how to get my students to understand Algebra now.
