Almira Osmanovic Thunström, a Swedish researcher tasked AI engine called GPT-3 with writing a 500 word scientific paper about itself.

It did it.

According to the Scientific American article, GPT-3 is well known for its ability to create humanlike text, but it’s not perfect. Still, it has written a news article, produced books in 24 hours and created new content from deceased authors.

The actual paper was not included in the article. She was going to publish it into a scientific journal with herself and the AI as coauthors.
