The artificial intelligence ChatGPT is currently on everyone's lips. The chatbot answers questions that the user asks it. The Swiss Finance Museum asked ChatGPT to write a blog post about Commodore International and asked the following two questions, to which the bot responded as follows - including the lead text from ChatGPT. We have only verified the accuracy of the content and did the publishing.
ChatGPT, what do you know about Commodore International?
Commodore was founded in 1954 and initially produced electronic typewriters. The company then switched to electronic calculators in the 1970s and eventually entered the home computer market, where it achieved great success with the Commodore PET and later the Commodore 64.
However, in the 1990s, the company was plagued by financial difficulties and was eventually dissolved in 1994. Nevertheless, Commodore remains an important part of the history of the computer industry and is still popular with many computer enthusiasts and collectors.
As for Commodore's stocks, they have not been tradable since the dissolution of the company. This means that it is no longer possible for investors to buy or sell shares in Commodore.
However, there are still collectors and fans who are interested in the history of the company and are willing to pay for rare Commodore products and collectibles. Some of these collectibles, such as the Commodore 64, have even increased in value and can be found at auctions and online marketplaces today.
In summary, it can be said that Commodore played an important role in the history of the computer industry and is still popular with many people today. While the company's stocks are no longer tradable, collectibles such as the Commodore 64 remain highly sought after by collectors and fans.
The 1979 Commodore International Limited share features Diana, goddess of the hunt, accompanied by three greyhounds.
Bytheway: ChatGPT did not know that.
ChatGPT, does Commodore have a connection to artificial intelligence?
Although Commodore played an important role in the history of the computer industry, the company had no direct connection to the development of artificial intelligence (AI).
In the 1980s, when Commodore's computers were popular, AI technology was not as advanced as it is today. Most computer applications at that time were limited to simple calculations, data input and output, and games. However, there were some early research and development efforts in AI, mainly carried out by academic institutions and research labs.
It is interesting to note, however, that the Commodore Amiga, another computer from Commodore that was released in the 1980s, was used by some developers and researchers in the AI community. The Amiga was of interest in some application areas of AI, such as visual recognition, due to its advanced graphics and audio technology.
Overall, it can be said that Commodore had no direct connection to the development of AI, but was of interest to some AI researchers and developers in certain application areas.
The exhibition "Banks in Transition: From Counters to Apps" and AI
To learn about where artificial intelligence (AI) is being used in the finance industry today and the pioneering role IBM played in the development of AI, visit the current exhibition at the Swiss Finance Museum, "Banks in Transition: From Counters to Apps". Who knows when ChatGPT will also curate exhibitions.
About the exhibition
Over the past 20 years, the face of Swiss banks has changed significantly. Where once the personal contact in the branch office used to be a priority, banking has now arrived on the smartphone. Which leads to several questions: How do we pay, save and invest - today and in the future? Which institutions do we trust? The exhibition shows the origins of the Swiss banking system up until the Swiss financial center takes shape, and contrasts them with the current, digital trends in banking: from counters to apps. A selection of original historical securities will be used to showcase the types of Swiss banks, as well as global tech companies that are steadily driving digitization in the financial sector.
