I love computer-generated things. A few weeks ago I tweeted
a computer-generated rap song I made about ABAP. The link in the tweet is dead, so I found a way to re-generate and preserve
the results. The picture for this piece is made by that same tool. Here are the tastiest bars of that rap:
“The application drops deep as does my program.
I never write, ‘cause to write is the grandma of ram.
Beyond the walls of hyperscalers, life is defined.
I think of innovation when I’m in a Walldorf state of mind.”
Surely I’ll be receiving a call from a major music label any minute.
The new normal in the AI/ML space is tooling to amplify human creativity. I actually wrote a little ABAP rap a few years ago, feeling tired-inspired after a late night of getting code into a customer project. I decided to show GPT-3 a portion of this rap and see what it had to say about finishing it. Here’s one verse of what I wrote:
“Yo I drop nonstop ABAP at the top SAP shop,
Innovation station - this Gopher’s bringing the top chops,
To North Loop - here’s the scoop - a frozen backdrop,
For air drops of fire, news from our view on top.”
And here is GPT-3 suggesting a follow-on verse:
“You got an app in your hand, I’m the man in your band,
Tech skills in demand, y’all think I’m conceited,
I’m just a gopher, but I’m not a fool,
An agile code hero, I’m a code-on-demand.”

. I think GPT-3 kinda found my voice. Is it a complete replacement for human creativity? No - of course not. But does it augment and support creativity? Undoubtedly. PM
