(TNS) — Since ChatGPT‘s release, teachers and students alike have been stunned by the artificial intelligence tool that can write essays, papers, poems — and just about anything a human can come up with — with a simple prompt.

The Internet has been buzzing about ChatGPT, the artificial intelligence tool that can write essays, papers, poems — and just about anything a human can come up with — with a simple prompt.

We tested the platform ourselves — and aside from it thinking San Jose has stellar beaches, it didn’t do half bad.

Prompt: Write a poem about the San Francisco Bay Area. Time to complete: 24 seconds

The Bay Area, a land of mist and fog
Where the Golden Gate Bridge stands proud and tall
A symbol of the city, a beacon to all

From the hills of San Francisco,
to the shores of Berkeley
The Bay Area is a place of diversity

Where tech and art, blend seamlessly
And cultures mingle, effortlessly

The Bay Area, a land of innovation
Where ideas are born, and dreams take shape
A place where the future is shaped

From the streets of Oakland,
to the beaches of San Jose
The Bay Area is a place of beauty

Where nature and city, coexist in harmony
And the hustle and bustle, never cease to be

The Bay Area, a land of opportunity
Where anything is possible, if you believe
A place where dreams are achieved

So come and see, the Bay Area’s charm
A place where anything is possible, if you have the heart
A place where dreams can come true, and you’ll never be apart.

Prompt: How do you get a puppy to learn how to sit? Time to complete: 16 seconds

To teach a puppy to sit, you can use positive reinforcement training. This involves rewarding the puppy with a treat or praise when they perform the desired behavior. Here’s a step-by-step guide:

  1. Get your puppy’s attention by calling their name or making a noise.
  2. Hold a treat in front of their nose and move it above their head so they have to look up to see it.
  3. As the puppy’s bottom touches the ground, say “sit” or “good sit” and give them the treat.
  4. Repeat the process several times a day until the puppy starts to sit automatically when you say “sit” or make the hand signal.
  5. Once the puppy is consistently sitting, you can begin to phase out the treat rewards and give verbal praise or a petting instead.

It’s important to make sure that your training sessions are short and positive, with lots of praise and rewards. This will help your puppy to enjoy learning and make the process more effective.

Prompt: Explain string theory in simple terms. Time to complete: 12 seconds

String theory is a theoretical framework in physics that attempts to unify the fundamental forces of nature. It suggests that the smallest building blocks of matter are not particles, but tiny, one-dimensional “strings” that vibrate at different frequencies. These vibrations give rise to the different particles and forces in the universe, such as photons and gravity. String theory also predicts the existence of extra dimensions beyond the familiar three spatial dimensions and one time dimension of our everyday experience. In simple terms, string theory is an idea that the universe is made of tiny strings instead of tiny particles and these strings vibrate in different ways which creates the various particles and forces we see in the universe.
