Most of you have probably heard about artificial intelligence AI.
The most talked about product these days is called ChatGPT. It is a large language model that can generate human-like text, trained on a massive dataset of written works from the internet.
So I decided to try it by asking it a question of interest for us. This is it:
What are the most efficient measures to improve the quality of the water in fresh water lakes?
Following is ChatGPT’s unedited answer.
There are several measures that can improve the quality of water in fresh water lakes:
- Reduce nutrient pollution: Excess nutrients from agricultural runoff, sewage, and other sources can cause excessive algae growth, leading to low oxygen levels and the death of aquatic life.
- Control urbanization: Development and urbanization can lead to increased runoff, soil erosion, and nutrient pollution. By limiting new development and controlling existing sources of pollution, water quality can be improved.
- Implement best management practices: Agricultural and industrial activities can be managed to reduce runoff and nutrient pollution.
- Improve wastewater treatment: Improving wastewater treatment plants and septic systems can reduce the amount of nutrient pollution entering the lake.
- Restore wetland habitats: Wetlands are important natural filters that can remove excess nutrients and pollutants from runoff before it enters the lake.
- Monitor water quality: Regular monitoring of water quality is necessary to detect changes, track progress, and identify new sources of pollution.
- Educate the public: Raising awareness about the importance of water quality and the actions that individuals can take to reduce pollution can help improve water quality in lakes.
This is exactly what I got. Did not change a word. The robot generated this text in about 10 seconds.

PS. Microsoft says it will soon in-bed it into it’s Bing search engine and Edge browser.
