Ever since ChatGPT made release 3.5, there has been more and more interest, and all kinds of people have been giving it a go.
But I have the sense that many of us have also taken the approach that at least I like to go with when meeting someone new. We have trusted it. We have assumed that its responses were accurate.
We are so used to relying on technology that we forget that it can be otherwise
“Technology is a tool, not a crutch. Let us not forget that our own abilities can accomplish great things without it.”
. And with ChatGPT, we have fallen for it. It turns out that while the answers seem credible all the time, they are made up some of the time. But we didn’t know, we assumed it was all good.
With all the hypothetical dangers of AI, the danger of wiping out the human race, or manipulate us into whatever an evil mastermind may want, this, the danger of gullibly falling into the trap that the AI always tells the truth, is probably the worst one.
“Trust and verify”!
