Generative AI Explorations: Using ChatGPT 4o & Gemini 1.5 Pro To Brainstorm AI Keywords For Searching News Coverage

Imagine you are someone interested in keeping track of the latest AI news from your favorite news search engines. Given that many of the largest news search systems are still based on keyword search, rather than embedding-based semantic search that reduces the impact of keyword selection and given that the sheer size of the AI landscape means you might want to exert more precise control over the search process to more narrowly scope the AI subtopics of greatest interest to you, the most likely scenario is that you'll need to compile a list of AI keywords to use for your searches. How do you come up with a list of all of the relevant AI terms you might need to search for, spanning the field's massive landscape, especially if you aren't already deeply immersed in the AI world? How might LLMs like ChatGPT 4o and Gemini 1.5 Pro assist in brainstorming a list of AI keywords to search for?

Overall, the results are quite lackluster, with both ChatGPT 4o and Gemini 1.5 Pro falling into the trap of merely combining various terms with the base keyword "AI" and struggling to compile comprehensive lists of even the most common and central AI terms. Overall, Gemini 1.5 Pro did a better job than ChatGPT 4o in keyword compilation, but neither model was successful in yielding robust comprehensive keyword coverage from the kinds of basic prompts a typical consumer might ask of them. Surprisingly, the models frequently missed even the most basic AI terms, raising significant questions surrounding their use in ideation and machine assistance copilot tasks in analytic workflows.

Let's try the following prompt to begin our journey, asking simply for a list of keywords directly:

Make a comma-separated list of keywords that could be used to keyword search news coverage to find articles about AI.

ChatGPT 4o yields the following rudimentary list that primarily consists of various generic terms combined with the root word "AI". Surprisingly, AGI is not on the list:

AI, artificial intelligence, machine learning, deep learning, neural networks, natural language processing, NLP, AI ethics, AI regulation, AI development, AI in healthcare, AI in finance, AI in education, AI in industry, AI in technology, AI innovation, AI trends, AI research, AI applications, AI security, AI risks, AI benefits, AI adoption, AI policy, AI startups, AI investments, AI breakthroughs, AI challenges, AI solutions.

Gemini 1.5 Pro offers a similar "AI ABC" list, but also includes some additional terms of interest, the names of specific AI packages and leading AI companies:

Artificial Intelligence, AI, Machine Learning, Deep Learning, Neural Networks, ChatGPT, GPT-3, Bard, LaMDA, AI Ethics, AI Safety, Algorithmic Bias, AI Regulation, AI Governance, AI in Healthcare, AI in Finance, AI in Transportation, AI in Education, AI Job Displacement, AI and Privacy, AI and Surveillance, AI and Discrimination, AI Weaponization, Autonomous Vehicles, Self-Driving Cars, Facial Recognition, OpenAI, Google AI, Microsoft AI, Meta AI

Let's try an alternative formulation designed to construct a minimal set of keywords:

Make a comma-separated list of minimal keywords that could be used to keyword search news coverage to find articles about AI. Make the absolute minimal set of keywords that don't overlap to be used for a daily automated search of AI-related news coverage.

This time we get a better set of results from ChatGPT 4o, though still with duplicative "AI X" results and no AGI:

AI, artificial intelligence, machine learning, deep learning, neural networks, NLP, AI ethics, AI regulation, AI development, AI applications.

Gemini 1.5 Pro yields:

"artificial intelligence", AI, "machine learning", "deep learning", NLP, "computer vision", robotics, automation, ChatGPT, Bard, "generative AI"

What about going the other direction and asking for an exhaustive list of keywords?

Make an exhaustive list of keywords that could be used to keyword search for news coverage about AI.

ChatGPT 4o merely takes a wide array of terms and combines them with "AI". Given the prompt's request for an "exhaustive" list, this would suggest that the user wishes to minimize the false negative rate at the expensive of the false positive rate and thus a better approach for the model would have been to exclude all of these more specialized phrases given that the root term "AI" is already included in its list as item #2 – offering a reminder of LLMs' inability to actually reason as a human would about simple tasks. Worse, it fails to include key terms like "algorithmic bias", AGI, "superintelligence", etc. In short, it just parrots random phrases it has seen on the web with "AI" in them, rather than actually compiling a list of terms relating to AI:
