ChatGPT: Is Theft a Bug or a Feature?

The potential risks and rewards of AI are highlighted in recent events involving ChatGPT. Misuse of the AI language model, such as citing fake judicial holdings, has raised concerns about the harm it could cause. Executives and scientists have called for prioritized risk mitigation. Despite the risks, some individuals, like Bill Gates, have invested in AI technology similar to ChatGPT. Governments and regulatory bodies, such as the European Union and the Biden administration, are exploring frameworks for AI regulation, but legislation may struggle to keep pace with the rapid development of AI. Two class action lawsuits have been filed against OpenAI, the owner of ChatGPT, with one centered around copyright claims and the other alleging privacy law violations. The lawsuits could potentially impact the future of ChatGPT, but may not impede its progress. The lawsuits shed light on the training dataset used by ChatGPT, including illegally copied books and other sources such as Common Crawl and WebTex2, which raise privacy concerns. The complaint also mentions potential risks, including the creation of undetectable malware and autonomous weapons. The legal challenges faced by ChatGPT extend beyond litigation, with potential FTC regulation based on deceptive claims and the possibility of federal legislation in the future. It is crucial to strike a balance between controlling the harmful effects of AI and exploring its vast potential.
