Well, this whole thing got me to thinking. If you know what recursion is (in computer programming) then you'll get a kick out of this. Or maybe a fright.

ChatGPT and other chatbot AIs use a "large language model," which just means the neural network behind the AI is trained on a huge amount of natural human language on the internet. But... (You're probably already getting this)

That now means they're reading their own AI-generated stuff! That's recursive.

Oh boy. We're in trouble now.
