With this aim, the editors, Ilan Manouach and Anna Engelhardt, assembled an inventory in which one can find contributions ...

The following conversation between K Allado-McDowell, Callum Dean, and myself occurred via Zoom on Wednesday, 14 July, 2021, at 9:00 New York/14:00 London. GPT-3 was subsequently invited, with Callum’s help, to respond at the end of the editing process to a series of prompts I selected from our conversation. Callum solicited multiple responses to each prompt, and I chose from among these the responses that I found most relevant and/or most surprising. In several instances, GPT-3’s entire, unedited response to a prompt has been included. In other cases, I have selected only a portion of an entire response, just as ...
