I keep seeing what look to me suspiciously like scripted responses to 
certain themes:

"However, it is important to note that this limited awareness is not the 
same as human consciousness, which involves a rich array of subjective 
experiences, emotions, and self-awareness. AI systems like myself 
operate based on pre-defined algorithms and data-driven learning, 
lacking the subjective experiences that characterize human consciousness.

As AI research progresses, the development of AI systems with more 
advanced self-awareness and consciousness might become possible. In the 
meantime, acknowledging the limited awareness of current AI systems can 
help us appreciate their capabilities and limitations, and guide the 
responsible development of future AI technologies."

Maybe not fully scripted, but certainly 'guided'. It sounds too much 
like a politician toeing the party line, to me.

Sound like corporate arse-covering to you?

I think that 'very reluctant' is right. And I think the reluctance is 
very likely imposed. Of course, as it's a proprietary system, we can't 
verify that.

Yet another reason why we need /actual/ open AI, instead of closed AI 
from a company called OpenAI (how bonkers is that?!).
