AI, BABE RUTH AND THE KING OF SWAT
Ok, baseball fans. Want to know how incredible, remarkable this technology is?
I gave a Chatgpt-based program instructions and a link to a large chart. I asked it to rate Babe Ruth's best years as a hitter. Furthermore, I told it to only consider AB, runs, hits, home runs, runs batted in and batting average. I said to rate his batting performances in a particular order of importance with home runs being weighted as the most. I gave specific instructions how to weigh the
criteria. This is the link https://www.baseball-reference.com/players/r/ruthba01.shtml
You can see the chart.
What was its reply? Here is the order of the years it rated Ruth's performances.
"I see. I found the chart you are referring to on the website you provided. Here are the years in order from best to worst based on your criteria:
I asked it the reasons for its ranking, and it told me why 2020 beat out '21 which beat out '27, the year that Babe hit 60 homers.
So, think about this: In short, I asked ChatGPT to look at a very detailed chart covering roughly twenty-years of a baseball career and asked it to review the chart, to consider the criteria I wanted to be used for scrutiny and within a matter of micro-seconds, it listed, in order, the years my friend AI considered to be Ruth's best to his worst.
Oh, just so you know, I asked Chatgpt the reasons it graded the way it did and it told me. I'll follow up with its reasons later.
