A converstion with the future


The new year is a step into the future. So, we interviewed the new AI from ChatGPT about dry separating toilets (here are responses from two identical rounds of questions)

ABEREUS: Have you heard of dry separating toilets? (answer from conversation 1)

OpenAI: Yes, I have heard of dry separating toilets. These are a type of dry toilet that separates urine and feces, allowing them to be processed and treated separately. This can help to reduce the volume and odour of waste, and can also be beneficial for the production of compost or fertiliser. Dry separating toilets typically use a combination of evaporation, ventilation, and composting to process the waste, and do not require water for flushing.

A: Which advantages of dry separating toilets do you see? (answer from conversation 1)

O: Some advantages of dry separating toilets include:

They are more water-efficient, as they do not require water for flushing. This can be especially beneficial in areas with limited water resources, or in situations where water conservation is a priority.

They produce less waste, as the separation of urine and feces allows for more efficient processing and treatment of the waste.

They produce less odour, as the separation of urine and feces reduces the potential for unpleasant smells.

They can be more environmentally-friendly, as the composted waste can be used as a fertiliser, reducing the need for chemical fertilisers.

They can be more cost-effective, as they do not require the installation and maintenance of a complex plumbing system.

They can provide a more hygienic and sanitary option, as the separation and treatment of waste can help to reduce the risk of disease transmission.

A: Would you prefer to use a dry separating toilet or a traditional water-flushed one? (answer from conversation 2)

O: As an artificial intelligence, I do not have personal preferences or the ability to use a toilet. I am a machine learning model designed to provide information and answer questions to the best of my ability based on my training. My purpose is to assist with tasks and provide information, not to have personal preferences or experiences.

A: Thank you for this conversation! (answer from conversation 2)

O: You’re welcome! It was a pleasure to assist you. Let me know if you have any other questions.
