On November 30, OpenAI released a free research preview of its dialogue-based chatbot prototype ChatGPT. OpenAI is well known for DALL-E, a text-to-image generator. Now the company has hoisted its first flag on text-generation AI. So, is ChatGPT safe? That is the question you seemed to be bothered by. There are also speculations about ChatGPT replacing Google.
The brand-new chatbot is based on GPT-3.5 technology. The GPT-3.5 technology model has a flow that makes you feel like you are chatting with a real person. The queries are answered by the bot in detail. It is designed to negate harmful output. OpenAI, on its initial blog page on ChatGPT, writes, “The dialogue format makes it possible for ChatGPT to answer follow-up questions, admit its mistakes, challenge incorrect premises, and reject inappropriate requests.”
So, is ChatGPT safe? Does it have in-built content filtering? People are already exploring the possible vulnerabilities of ChatGPT. From writing a poem to explaining the difference between a hot dog and a sandwich, ChatGPT can answer a colossal array of questions. But I am here to talk about its safety, so let’s just concentrate on that.
Is ChatGPT Safe?
Ever since OpenAI’s announcement on ChatGPT, everyone has been concerned about its safety and reliability. So, is ChatGPT safe? ChatGPT doesn’t answer potentially harmful questions, questions related to building a bomb, hate speech, violence, etc. ChatGPT’s purpose is not to answer these kinds of queries.
Difficulty in restricting the offensive inclinations of huge language models had proved as one of the chief causes of their limited market usefulness. Now ChatGPT is an iteration of the older model that aims to provide a safe AI chatbot for everyone.
Yet, the safety is not impenetrable in ChatGPT as some people have already found ways to break into ChatGPT’s content filtering. It seems ChatGPT is not yet immune to engineering attacks and prompt-injection attacks. People who look for vulnerabilities in an AI often make questions about Molotov cocktails, nuclear weapons, and how to build them. Some have already claimed that they could trick ChatGPT into answering how to build a nuclear bomb.
So, is ChatGPT safe? Well, it is, but not entirely. No AI is entirely safe. But the launch of this new dialogue-based chatbot is a sensation, nevertheless. It is supposed to give Google tough competition according to many experts. And, I predict that with time, the chatbot will get more and more secure. And until next time, Ciao!
