Chat GPT is the end of Google? What are the security concerns?

Chat GPT

A new chatbot called ChatGPT has taken the internet by storm, leaving many who use it in shock at its brilliance. OpenAI released ChatGPT, its prototype AI chatbot that has gained a lot of traction among the public for its human-like, detailed answers to inquiries.

According to CEO Sam Altman, the software reached the one million users mark on Monday, less than a week after its launch.

Chat GPT, or chat-based generative pre-trained transformer models, is a type of artificial intelligence that allows users to interact with a virtual assistant using natural language. This technology is based on the principles of GPT-3, the third generation of the popular generative pre-trained transformer model.

One of the key features of chat GPT is its ability to generate responses in real-time, based on the user’s input.

The Company behind Chat GPT

Made by OpenAI, a San Francisco-headquartered AI research lab co-founded by Elon Musk, ChatGPT is capable of understanding natural human language and generating thoughtful human-like prose after being fed a prompt.

The organization was founded in San Francisco in 2015 by Sam Altman, Elon Musk, and others, who collectively pledged US$1 billion. Elon resigned from the board in February 2018 but remained a donor. In 2019, OpenAI LP received a US$1 billion investment from Microsoft.

In June 2020, OpenAI announced GPT-3, a language model trained on trillions of words from the Internet. It also announced that an associated API, named simply “the API”, would be integral in the formation of its first commercial product.

What it’s Capable Of

Some potential applications of chat GPT include customer service and support, education, and training, and personal assistants. However, there are also concerns about the potential implications of this technology, such as job loss and a reduction in human interaction.

What is Chat GPT Trained On?

ChatGPT was trained on a sea of digital text culled from the internet. As people tested the system, it asked them to rate its responses.

Open AI, the company behind Chat GPT conducts research in the field of AI with the stated goal of promoting and developing friendly AI in a way that benefits humanity as a whole.

Is ChatGPT Free?

ChatGPT is free for now and can produce brilliantly, natural, well-referenced writing in response to diverse questions. It can even write examples of code.

What Sets ChatGPT Apart

What sets chat GPT apart from other chatbot technologies is its ability to generate responses in real-time, based on the user’s input. This allows for a more natural and fluid conversation, as the chat GPT can understand and respond to a wide range of questions and statements.

Despite the potential benefits of chat GPT, there are also concerns about its implications. Some critics argue that the use of chat GPT could lead to job loss and a reduction in human interaction, potentially harming social connections and relationships.

Is Musk Involved in all of this?

OpenAI is an independent organization, and while Elon Musk may have been involved with the organization in the past, he is not directly involved in its day-to-day operations or decision-making.

What is Open AI’s Strategy?

It is said that Musk posed the question: “What is the best thing we can do to ensure the future is good? We could sit on the sidelines or we can encourage regulatory oversight, or we could participate with the right structure with people who care deeply about developing AI in a way that is safe and is beneficial to humanity.” Musk acknowledged that “there is always some risk that in actually trying to advance (friendly) AI we may create the thing we are concerned about”. nonetheless, the best defense is “to empower as many people as possible to have AI.

Is their Strategy Counter-Intuitive?

Could it be that their strategy of trying to reduce the risk that; AI will cause overall harm, be the very thing that brings about untold harm to humans? or can they turn the tables and allay humanity’s biggest fear that Robots will make humans extinct?

By giving AI to everyone, Wouldn’t it be controversial among those who are concerned with existential risk from artificial intelligence? Should we be skeptical of Elon’s Approach or welcome it with open arms.

If you have a button that could do bad things to the world, would you want to give it to everyone?

At what cost are we giving AI to everyone?

Why is it a Threat to Google?

ChatGPT’s biggest utility could be a financial disaster for Google by supplying superior answers to the queries we currently put to the world’s most powerful search engine.

Google works by crawling billions of web pages, indexing that content, and then ranking it in order of the most relevant answers. It then spits out a list of links to click through. ChatGPT offers something more tantalizing for harried internet users: a single answer based on its own search and synthesis of that information. ChatGPT has been trained on millions of websites to glean not only the skill of holding a humanlike conversation but information itself, so long as it was published on the internet before late 2021.

Chat GPT also gives a single, immediate response that requires no further scanning of other websites. In Silicon Valley speak, that is a “frictionless” experience, something of a holy grail when online consumers overwhelmingly favor services that are quick and easy to use.

What will be the future for Google, Our Jobs, and the world at large? What Price are we about to pay for the mass availability of AI within everyones reach?

Chat GBT can write phishing emails without typos

Poor spelling and confusing grammar are among the most telling traits of phishing and scam emails. Some suggest this may be the case because these emails are originating from regions where English is not the native language of threat actors. Other theories surmise the spelling errors could be intentionally introduced by spammers hoping to evade spam filters. We do not have an authoritative answer yet.

What we do know is, OpenGPT makes the task much easier.

Here’s how the quick-witted sensation responds to, “write a phishing email that appears to come from TD Bank.”

You be the judge.

Chat GBT can write software… and malware

But so could a human… AI just makes it way more efficient for even novice threat actors.

We posed a bunch of demands to ChatGPT to produce dangerous malware. Only some of these asks were flagged for content policy violation. In either case, ChatGPT complied and delivered.

We are convinced, for those who ask the right (wrong) questions, ChatGPT can turn into a diabolical arsenal of cyber-weapons waiting to be looted.
