AI Text Analysis

Chapter Summaries with Chat GPT.
In Fall 2023, the computer science students on the George Eliot Archive team began experimenting with the public and premium versions of OpenAI’s large language model to see what it could tell us about Eliot’s works. Results were riddled with errors until we uploaded the texts chapter by chapter (due to token limits) then prompted for summaries, character names, and settings from only the text provided. We even asked for “key quotations,” with fascinating results—most predictable but some surprising.
