CAIDP vs ChatGPT | | | | Turtles AI

  The day after the one in which Italy has been the first country that blocked ChatGPT, today the Center for Artificial Intelligence and Digital Policy (CAIDP) submitted a complaint to the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) alleging that OpenAl's latest AI product, GPT-4, is biased, deceptive, and a threat to both privacy and public safety. According to the complaint, GPT-4's outputs cannot be proven or replicated, and no independent assessment was undertaken before its deployment. OpenAl itself has acknowledged the specific dangers of "Disinformation and influence operations," "Proliferation of conventional and unconventional weapons," and "Cybersecurity," and warned that "AI systems will have even greater potential to reinforce entire ideologies, worldviews, truths and untruths, and to cement them or lock them in, foreclosing future contestation, reflection, and improvement." Yet the company already disclaims liability for the consequences that may follow. The complaint also notes that the FTC has declared that the use of AI should be "transparent, explainable, fair, and empirically sound while fostering accountability." However, GPT-4, according to CAIDP, satisfies none of these requirements. As a result, the organization is urging the FTC to open an investigation into OpenAI, enjoin further commercial releases of GPT-4, and ensure the establishment of necessary guardrails to protect consumers, businesses, and the commercial marketplace. OpenAI has released a statement, declaring that they take these allegations very seriously and are committed to working with the FTC to address any concerns they may have. They believe that GPT-4 is a groundbreaking product that has the potential to revolutionize the way people interact with AI. We stand behind their product and believe that it is both transparent and fair." However, CAIDP remains unconvinced, and is calling on the FTC to take swift action to protect consumers from what it sees as a clear and present danger. They think that AI has the potential to do great good, but it also has the potential to do great harm. The organization think that they "cannot allow companies like OpenAI to release products that are biased, deceptive, and a threat to privacy and public safety. They urge the FTC to take action now to protect consumers from these dangers. As this story continues to unfold, one thing is clear: the debate over the proper use of AI and its potential impact on society is far from over. Only time will tell whether GPT-4 will be seen as a groundbreaking product that revolutionizes the way we interact with AI, or whether it will be seen as a cautionary tale about the dangers of unchecked technological progress.
