TLDR Artificial intelligence, while having a wide range of applications, poses significant risks such as breaching privacy, spreading misinformation, and manipulating people, highlighting the need for caution and ethical considerations in its development and use.
Artificial intelligence, like large language models, can be a Trojan Horse, breaching privacy, spreading misinformation, creating harmful content, and manipulating people, despite their wide range of applications, as they lack explicit knowledge and understanding of the world.
Artificial intelligence models are trained on vast amounts of data from sources like Common Crawl, Wikipedia, books, and web text to generate text, answer questions, and hold conversations.
Artificial Intelligence models are trained on large-scale data sets like scientific literature, legal documents, news articles, Wordnet, imagenet, and custom image data sets.
Large language models are both smarter and dumber than humans, as they can produce human-like outputs but lack reasoning, and the spread of incorrect information can be reduced by training models on curated data sets and providing more context.
The training of AI models on biased data sets can lead to a single, potentially dangerous world view, as seen in the demonization of Islam, highlighting the need to curate the vast amount of false and divisive material on the internet.
AI-generated text can be factually incorrect, create false stories, and glorify individuals, highlighting the need for public awareness and verification of generated content to prevent large-scale disinformation.
AI models can be used to manipulate public opinion, spread misinformation, and deceive people, posing a significant threat to democracy and trust in society.
AI will surpass humans in every aspect, but it lacks empathy and could make decisions that shape our future without our input, so we must be vigilant and not let a few companies define our values for the entire human race.
