Be it resolved, Chat GPT will cause more harm than good.
Seemingly overnight, Chat GPT has exploded out of the deepest corners of the emerging tech space and into the mainstream, capturing the imaginations of everyone from students to CEOs. But with any new, exciting technology, there tend to be more questions than answers. For the creators of Chat GPT, tech writers, and other AI evangelists, this is a Sputnik level moment in tech, and will have far ranging and transformational consequences for the future. The impact of this revolutionary technology is already being felt, and this is truly just the beginning.
This does not mean that Chat GPT will transform the world for the better but will without a doubt come to define life in the 21st century. But for other computer scientists, AI specialists, and the generally unimpressed, Chap GPT is nothing more than a clever party trick. Chat GPT is not even close to artificial general intelligence, but merely a finely tuned and at times impressive mimic. Chat GPT is also rife with errors and is difficult to trust. A program that produces such inconsistent results is far more likely to be a flash in the pan than a technological revolution.
