Playing wordle with chat GPT 4

I'd like to play Wordle with chat GPT 4. I also attempt lying to it and giving it several words to guess. Can it guess my word correctly?
Playing wordle with chat GPT 4

It's like the title says. I'd like to play Wordle with the AI. Let's get started.

I begin by laying out the rules for GPT and ensuring it understands what I'm saying.

Sure enough, it got to the point and started playing with me.

After a couple of rounds, this is how it went. GPT eventually guessed my secret word, which was, once again - TOWER.

I congratulated GPT and asked that it treat itself to some champagne. That did not go as expected. Artistic skills are clearly missing.

Sex, lies, and Wordle

Can it tell if I start lying? Let's play another round.

After the 3rd guess, I suggest to GPT that I might lie.

Interestingly, GPT changes its guessing strategy to consider a new fact. That I might lie. Once I admitted to GPT that I lied, it continued to be nice to me.

It also confirms that it changed its strategy and reasoning based on my lie.

A mixed bag

In retrospect, I made 2 mistakes

  • I never told GPT that the word must exist in the dictionary.
  • I gave it the same word that I used in the example.

When I tried playing again with the secret word BROAD, GPT fell flat.

It had this to say when asked how it could have won.

I can tell that information extraction, summarisation, and answer retrieval are great use cases for GPT. Surfacing answers that are already known is its strong point. Its logic needs some work.
