Is there a consensus?
“Both Bard & ChatGPT were unable to do the most important job of an executive asst: checking a calendar to find time in my schedule to go to the dentist.That’s because the bots cannot access people’s calendars. But they most likely will be able to soon”https://t.co/DJ4PxIPnAy— Todd Carpenter tac_NISO at social.niso.org (@TAC_NISO) March 29, 2023
The Copyright Office Offers Guidance
In a separate thread, Todd Carpenter also noted the March 16 announcement from the U.S. Copyright Office, Library of Congress, "to examine the copyright law and policy issues raised by artificial intelligence (AI), including the scope of copyright in works generated using AI tools and the use of copyrighted materials in AI training."
The full text of their announcement included the issuance of "new registration guidance". The Office notes that applicants have a duty to disclose the inclusion of AI-generated content in works submitted for registration. The new guidance provides details on how to do so, including how to update pending applications.

Let's Be Clear
Chat GPT does not give you an answer to a question. It tells you what answers to questions like yours tend to look like. Better models might or might not mean that that converges with an actual answer over time. https://t.co/ZfMEakKCna— Benedict Evans (@benedictevans) March 30, 2023
