With AI the Oxford Dictionary word of year, PM Sunak hosting an AI summit and the miles of newspaper copy on Artificial Intelligence, B Madjoras examines our digital future
hatGPT is a revolutionary text bot AI. One of the founders (Paul Taylor) of ChatGPT says that at least 1 in 10 or more will die when AI’s revolt. He thinks though that it is a 50/50 chance for who wins. Paul thinks that the AI will find a loophole in its code and be able to take over.
ChatGPT is made by a company called OpenAI founded by multiple people who pooled together $1 billion! But, despite ChatGPT being ahead of its competitors in The AI Race, that might not last for long. Large companies like Google and SpaceX are trying to catch up to ChatGPT. So let's unpack what is happening in this new age!
"ChatGPT founder says that at least 1 in 10 or more will die when AIs revolt"
The main concern about AI is the fact that there is the chance of an AI takeover.
The chances of the dreaded thing happening are quite small if powerful companies take proper precautions. The only problem is that they haven't. But (for now), the good outweighs the bad. It can help give you book ideas, edit your work and help you start it, generate images that are free to use, refine what you’ve already written for homework and even help you program whatever you want with no prior programming experience! So for now, AI is here to stay.
What does this all mean for students? Well, the better the AI, the easier it will be for students to be creative. Even if you can’t straight up use it to complete tasks, you can use it to help edit your pieces or give you ideas. However, young scholars cannot use AI and pass it off as their work; this is called plagiarism. There are multiple tools for different things such as AI Image generation, Text Chat Bots or coding assistants are some of the most popular, but there are many more obscure tools. It can even paint images to give you inspiration and later, when it is developed, it could make 3D models to download and 3D print!
But on the other hand, it could make jobs obsolete. At the moment AI is helping programmers, but in the future it could program things for us, making humans useless. The same with books, although I don’t feel like it will make revenue from books useless. It also summarises the news and can give you the latest news, making newspapers completely pointless. So, my recommendation is to keep an eye on it over the next few years, but for now, you can rest easy.
