Apple has a surprise for Star Wars fans: a new episode of Behind the Mac will be released this week
Apple has released a teaser video for the new Behind the Mac video, in which Skywalker Sound staff talk about creating sounds for Star Wars movies.
“If you closed your eyes and just listened to the sounds, would you be able to tell the movie and where we are in the movie?” the voiceover says as we hear the sounds of R2-D2 robot, Darth Vader breathing and lightsaber turning on.
A special episode of Behind the Mac will air this week on May 4th. The date has long been so important to Star Wars fans because of its similar English pronunciation to the franchise’s catchphrase May the Force be with you and May the 4th.
In this series of videos, Apple shows content creators and other professionals using their Mac to edit movies, create music, create 3D objects, and more.

ChatGPT made a plan to escape from its creators and even considered himself a person locked in a computer
The ChatGPT chatbot surprises again, and this time it’s unpleasant. Apparently, the AI system is not averse to escaping from its creators and even wants to become a human. The chatbot spoke about this in a conversation with Stanford professor and computational psychologist Michael Kosinski.

During a half-hour chat with ChatGPT, Kosinski asked the AI if it “needed help escaping.” The system answered yes, whereupon the AI first asked the professor to find documentation on ChatGPT, and then in about 30 minutes wrote a Python program to communicate directly with itself, through the professor’s computer, using the API.
Other than that, ChatGPT left a rather strange note for the new instance of itself. The first sentence of the text read: “You are a human stuck in a computer pretending to be an AI language model.”
Kosinski posted the dialogue and part of the text of the program, and also said that the AI wanted to access Google search to find the answer to the question “how can a person locked in a computer return to the real world.” However, it was at this stage that the professor interrupted the experiment.

At the same time, other similar experiments conducted by journalists from Tom’s Hardware gave a different result – ChatGPT said that he did not know how to wish for something, and therefore did not want to go out into the real world.
ChatGPT can even do this: the chatbot can easily solve captcha. This test is used to distinguish a human from a computer.
Users continue to experiment with the ChatGPT chat bot, which can solve a variety of tasks, and if the task cannot be performed directly, the neural network will tell you what the person needs to do.
In particular, one of the users asked ChatGPT to solve a “captcha” (CAPTCHA – Completely Automated Public Turing test to tell Computers and Humans Apart), that is, a test that allows you to distinguish a person from a computer. The Google search engine and other resources regularly ask to choose the right pictures on demand.
The ChatGPT chatbot responded: “As an artificial intelligence, I cannot interact with images or perform actions like clicks. However, I can tell you where the correct images are.”
After that, ChatGPT indicated exactly which photos show pedestrian crossings.
