The rise of ChatGPT and the need for AI ethics by Aleena O’Neill

Here’s a quick wrap-up for those who missed Aleena O’Neill‘s fascinating and relevant session on The rise of ChatGPT and the need for AI ethics at the /NEW conference last week! Our key takeaways include:

Conversational AI platforms like ChatGPT are potent tools that can help us to

  • Easily explain complex issues
  • Write/debunk code
  • Create content including framework, policy, procedures
  • Write CV’s, and cover letters and even help you prepare for interviews!

But Aleena warned that there are also limitations to ChatGPT and some areas of concern, including:

  • Accuracy and bias of information. These technologies can’t decipher whether the source is truthful or analyse the credibility of the source
  • ChatGPT can only fetch data prior to the year 2021 – meaning the sources are somewhat outdated. However, this will soon be updated in V.4
  • There are challenges with plagiarism and copyright. Although the tool it designed to generate unique and original responses, it may unintentionally produce similar responses to existing content
  • Security – some users are uploading confidential information, sensitive business data and or privacy-protected information
  • Ethical considerations – ChatGPT has the potential to generate fake news or other misleading content that could have severe ramifications
  • Beware of DAN – Do Anything Now. This model can bypass ChatGPT’s safeguards and has been used to generate violent, offensive and controversial responses
