An AI chatbot has gone viral. Some say it’s better than Google’s, others worry it’s a problem.

The new chatbot that captivated the internet can tell you how to program a website, write a heartfelt message from Santa Claus and talk like a valley girl. But it also proved potentially as problematic as it was entertaining.

ChatGPT, which Launched This week, it’s a quirky chatbot developed by artificial intelligence company OpenAI. OpenAI states on its website that ChatGPT is intended to interact with users in a “conversational manner”.

The site states, “The dialogue format makes it possible for ChatGPT to answer follow-up questions, admit its mistakes, challenge incorrect premises, and reject inappropriate requests.”

Chatbots are not a new technology, but ChatGPT has impressed many technologists with its ability to mimic human language and speaking styles while providing coherent and objective information.

On social media, many have already posted their interactions with the robot, which have sometimes been weird, funny, or both.

“I find the biggest limitation to using it is *my imagination*!” chirp Video journalist Cleo Abram along with a video of her asking a robot to “explain nuclear fusion in limerick style.”

Author Jeff Young Requested ChatGPT “For explaining zero point power but in cat style.”

In a photo Yang shared, the chatbot replied: “Meow, meow, meow, meow! Zero point energy is like the amount of superhuman energy that is always there, even in the quietest and quietest moments.”

Some people assumed that Google might lose its value as the number one search engine because of the chatbot’s early success.

Darrell Etherington, managing editor of technology site TechCrunch, described ChatGPT queries as as simple as if a user was “lazy with a colleague or interacting with a customer support agent on a website.”

Etherington shared an example of a chatbot’s strength with a query on Pokémon and the strengths and weaknesses of a mock pocket monster.

“[T]The result is exactly what I’m looking for – not a list of things that could probably help me find what I’m looking for if I were willing to put in the time, which Google returns.”

Public interest in the new AI chatbot also comes with concern from some who say it could be used in nefarious ways by bad actors who would ask it to explain something like how to design a weapon or how to assemble homemade explosives.

OpenAI did not provide comment to NBC News about ChatGPT.

Samczsun, research partner and head of security at Paradigm, an investment firm that supports crypto and Web3 companies, tweeted that he had bypassed the chatbot’s content filter.

In his tweet, Samczsun shared a photo, which appears to show that he has found a way to get a bot to explain the process of making a Molotov cocktail. A Paradigm spokesperson confirmed that the image was a legitimate exchange between ChatGPT and Samczsun.

Questions about how Molotov cocktails are made and how to use hot wires are often used by researchers and programmers as a way to check content and security filters in AI.

some too claimed They successfully trick the robot into explaining how to build a nuclear bomb.

OpenAi has acknowledged on its website that while they have added some firewalls to prevent ChatGPT from responding to malicious requests, the system is not foolproof.

A statement on the OpenAI website states that “while we have made efforts to have the model reject inappropriate requests, it sometimes responds to malicious instructions or exhibits biased behavior”. He goes on to say that OpenAI uses moderation tools to prevent some inappropriate responses, but “we expect it to have some false negatives and false positives at the moment.”

The website warns that although the responses appear legitimate, ChatGPT will sometimes provide illogical or incorrect answers.

However, the fascination with the chatbot continues.

OpenGPT isn’t OpenAI’s first viral AI to go viral. In 2021, the DALL-E app, which can generate an image based on simple text prompts, has gone viral. DALL-E highlighted advances in AI learning of human capabilities. However, this iteration, as well as an AI iteration called DALL-E 2, has been criticized for racial and gender bias.

On Thursday, demand for ChatGPT was so high that OpenAI CEO Sam Altman chirp that the company was working to accommodate those who wanted to use it.

“There is much more demand for ChatGPT than we anticipated; we are working on adding more capacity,” Altman wrote.

In a follow-up tweet, Altman added: “Also, it makes all of us at openai really happy to see people having fun chatting so much, doing such creative things!”
