If ChatGPT doesn’t get a better grasp of facts, nothing else matters
Fast Company found some…”inconsistencies” when using ChatGPT. The astonsihing AI taking over your social media feeds opens a window on the potential of artificial intelligence. But could it be a future full of even more false information?
But whenever I chat with ChatGPT about any subject I know much about, such as the history of animation, I’m most struck by how deeply untrustworthy it is. If a rogue software engineer set out to poison our shared corpus of knowledge by generating convincing-sounding misinformation in bulk, the end result might look something like this. It’s prone to botching the chronological order of events, conflating multiple people with similar backgrounds, and—like an unprepared student—lobbing vague pronouncements that don’t require it to know anything about the topic at hand. How it comes up with gems like an imaginary 1929 cartoon called The Funk Popilin Show, I’m still not sure.
