Congress leader and Thiruvananthapuram MP Shashi Tharoor’s unique writing style has garnered attention once again, this time with an AI chatbot attempting to mimic it. The artificial intelligence chatbot, ChatGPT developed by OpenAI, was asked by a user how Shashi Tharoor would write the word approved in his typical style.
The response generated by ChatGPT was in line with Tharoor’s eloquent and sophisticated writing style, stating, In due deference to the matter at hand, it is my esteemed privilege to affirm that the proposition in question has garnered the imprimatur of the relevant authorities, thereby conferring upon it the immeasurable distinction of having been formally endorsed and sanctioned.
Tharoor, known for his extensive vocabulary and use of complex words, expressed his disapproval of the AI-generated response, humorously mentioning that he simply writes approved when dealing with bureaucratic files.
The post featuring the prompt and ChatGPT’s response gained significant attention on social media, with users sharing their thoughts. Some found it amusing that even a large language model like GPT struggles to imitate Tharoor’s style, while others were expecting Tharoor to point out a grammatical mistake in the AI’s response. Another user delved into the legal responsibility behind the collective approval.
This isn’t the first time Tharoor’s linguistic prowess has made headlines, as he recently highlighted the difficulty foreigners face when pronouncing the name of his constituency, Thiruvananthapuram. A video of South African cricket players struggling with the pronunciation prompted Tharoor to suggest that the capital city’s name should have been Ananthapuri.
