AI's predictions are going to be based on calculations of actual probabilities taken from machine learning . Your brain and AI, in other words, have something in common. They both work like prediction machines. The biggest difference is that AI runs like a Formula 1 racecar. It also has a much bigger data tank to fuel its creations, which is partly how ChatGPT drafts such competent text.
