AI has become quite a hot topic of discussion recently due to the emergence of the AI chatbot ChatGPT from OpenAI and generative AI image makers like Midjourney and DALL-E 2. Nevertheless, some people disagree with this new technology.
The New York Times recently published a report detailing that in March, two Google personnel attempted to prevent the tech giant from introducing an AI chatbot that would rival OpenAI’s ChatGPT.
The NYT report states that employees have been assigned to check Google’s AI products but are concerned about the system producing incorrect or perilous utterances.
Months before its planned launch, Microsoft had already encountered worries from its personnel and ethicists about the potential for an AI chatbot incorporated into Bing to contribute to a lack of critical thinking, the dissemination of false information, and the decaying of what is considered factual in contemporary society.
In November 2022, OpenAI released ChatGPT-4, and Microsoft followed suit with the launch of its Bing-integrated chatbot in February. Google’s “Bard” chatbot was released at the end of March.
We are thrilled to be able to provide access to Bard in both the US and the UK, with more countries soon to follow. This is an exciting experiment that enables you to collaborate with artificial intelligence. We hope Bard will inspire even more creativity and curiosity, and we look forward to your feedback for improving it!
ChatGPT has caused a lot of debate around the moral implications and applications of AI chatbots and image generators since it became available.
At the same time, Midjourney, an application that utilizes AI to create realistic visuals, ended its free trial to address issues with deep fakes. An executive from the Australian media industry proposed that ChatGPT and Artificial Intelligence should be compensated monetarily for their news consumption.
Concerns for the future of society and truth have been expressed in a letter written by more than 1,000 researchers and tech experts, Elon Musk among them. This letter urges to reduce the speed at which technological advances are being made.
Italian officials have recently taken matters into their own hands by temporarily barring ChatGPT. Additionally, President Joe Biden of the United States has implored tech companies to tackle any potential threats that may be brought about by artificial intelligence (AI).

The fact that some Google employees are raising concerns about ChatGPT is a positive sign that the tech industry is beginning to take these risks seriously. It is essential that companies like Google, with their vast resources and expertise, take a responsible approach to the development and deployment of AI technology. This means ensuring that their AI models are accurate and effective and used in ethical and respectful ways of human rights.
