svgFebruary 4,

  • OpenAI chatbot, ChatGPT, is a Generative AI model
  • Opened to public testing in November 2022, became hugely popular
  • Basic writing is better than most students
  • Potential concern of generating false news
  • Uses GPT 3.5 as its underlying language model
  • Trained on a massive data set containing books, articles and websites
  • Has limited accuracy and may be out of date
  • Backed by Microsoft, LinkedIn co-founder Reid Hoffman, Khosla Ventures and Elon Musk
  • Developed on Azure cloud computing infrastructure
  • 450 startups estimated to be working on Generative AI
  • Microsoft, Meta and Google have all developed their own language models

What is OpenAI ChatGPT?

  • OpenAI GPT-3 (Generative Pre-trained Transformer 3) is a natural language processing (NLP) system with advancements in its generative capabilities, allowing it to generate text with almost human-like creativity.
  • ChatGPT is an application of GPT-3, allowing users to have conversations with Artificial Intelligence systems.

Misinformation Issues

  • AI Technology can still be inaccurate and biased if its source datasets are biased or toxic.
  • As AI technology is often used for searching for information, the risks of misinformation is of top priority for companies like Google.
  • OpenAI’s CEO has warned users to not rely on current iteration of AI technology for anything important.

AI Replacing Human Workers

  • Relatively few of the stories in newspapers or on television news are done as investigative reporting, so generative AI is suited for these basic reporting tasks.
  • AI models are also being trained to write basic code and impact fields such as law, journalism and translation.
  • Schools are already implementing bans on ChatGPT in order to prevent students from misusing the tool.

AI Limitations

  • AI cannot understand the world outside of language, so they cannot completely replace humans.
  • AI have been known to generate biased answers and users should take care to not rely on them too heavily.
  • AI tools such as ChatGPT have also had issues with instructions on dangerous activities such as bomb making.
