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.
- 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 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.
