Top Ten Attractions in Box Elder County by AI
Marketers are using the term "Artificial Intelligence" for a new breed of program that is able to analyze and generate text.
These programs have access to a webcrawl. So, you can ask the AI a question. It will query the web crawl and generate text related to the query.
To test the program, I asked ChatGPT and Google Bard to list the Top Ten Attractions in Utah Counties. This page shows the response for Box Elder County.
This is the response from ChatGPT. There were no big surprises:
- Golden Spike National Historical Park: Commemorates the completion of the first transcontinental railroad in the United States with reenactments, exhibits, and a replica of the Golden Spike.
- Spiral Jetty: A famous earthwork sculpture created by Robert Smithson in 1970. It's located on the northeastern shore of the Great Salt Lake and offers a unique artistic and natural experience.
