- Bias • Human bias is transferring to AI. ChatGPT can produce hateful, racist or sexist comments.
- Disinformation • ChatGPT can deepen the disinformation crisis. It can fake sources and give plausible, but incorrect or nonsensical answers. Elephants do not lay eggs.
- Misuse • ChatGPT is not meant to give advice and you shouldn’t rely on it for anything important. Do not ask it for help with mental health.
🔑 Key Lessons
- ChatGPT learns from us. It didn’t know what “updog” was until now.
- We underestimate the power of AI. Jack Clark says today’s AI models are far more capable than we think.
- The output quality depends on the input quality. Direct prompts and follow-up questions lead to better results.
🔥 Hot Takes
- ChatGPT is the new Google. We don’t need to look through search results if we can get the answer right away. Businesses that rely on SEO will have to pivot to survive.
- ChatGPT will replace mediocre professionals. Naval Ravikant says AI will replace the people who think it will. Talented professionals will survive. The mediocre ones will fall apart.
- AI artists will use ChatGPT to write detailed prompts for AI-image generators. Guy Parsons used ChatGPT’s prompts to generate living room designs with Midjourney. Amir Bomani used ChatGPT, Midjourney, and Fliki to create this story, images and voice with AI.
“ChatGPT’s responses are generic. They lack depth and insight.”
ChatGPT is not the ultimate source of truth. Some say it can write your papers. Others say it does not understand math. Treat it like a toy, not a tool. At least for now.
“ChatGPT won’t replace Google Search.”
Google may disrupt itself first.
“ChatGPT promotes laziness.”
Our energy is finite. We take the path of least resistance. Tools like ChatGPT make it easier to conserve energy. This is not its fault. It’s biology.
“We can detect AI-generated text.”
There are ways to make it harder. This is unedited, AI-generated text. Writer says that 5 out of 9 passages are human-written. GPTZero says that it’s likely a human-written text.
