OpenAI CEO Sam Altman Worries AI Could Be Used to Spread ‘Disinformation’

OpenAI CEO Sam Altman is “a little scared” of AI — not for the usual, horrific reasons, but for a more left-wing concern: its ability to spread “disinformation.”

“We have to be careful here,” Altman said ABC News said. “I think people should be happy that we’re a little bit afraid of this.”

“I am particularly concerned that these models can be used for disinformation on a large scale,” the OpenAI CEO continued. Now that they’re better at writing computer code, [they] They can be used to launch offensive cyberattacks.”

Altman’s company, the Microsoft-funded OpenAI, is responsible for creating GPT, the technology behind the hugely successful ChatGPT.

As Breitbart News previously reported, early iterations of the technology were marked by political bias, which the company has gone some way to correcting.

Altman’s interview with ABC also touched on another source of media fear, Russian President Vladimir Putin – in particular, in 2017. comment Which country masters artificial intelligence first will rule the world.

Describing the phrase as “scary”, Altman expressed his hopes for a future of artificial intelligence where “we successively develop more and more powerful systems that we can all use in different ways that incorporate it into our daily lives, into the economy, and become an amplification of human will”.

Altman also touched on the concern that artificial intelligence could rapidly replace human jobs.

“I think that over the course of two generations, humanity has demonstrated that it can adapt wonderfully to major technological shifts,” Altmann said. “But if this happens in a single-digit number of years, some of these shifts…that’s the part I worry about the most.”

OpenAI’s CEO has previously stated that he believes that artificial general intelligence (AGI) – a supposed future artificial intelligence with intelligence beyond humanity – has the potential to “break capitalism”.

Of all the bad systems in the world, [capitalism is] The best – or least bad – we’ve found so far. Hope we find a better way. And I think if AI really fully happens, I can imagine all of these ways of breaking up capitalism.”
