Users who openly discuss political views or workplace complaints on ChatGPT run the risk of being reprimanded by an artificial intelligence specialist.

According to Oxford University AI expert Mike Wooldridge, it would be “extremely unwise” to share personal information or have heartfelt conversations with a chatbot because any information disclosed helps train future iterations of the system.

Additionally, he says that users shouldn’t anticipate a fair reaction to their remarks because technology “tells you what you want to hear.”

Although humans were designed to search for awareness in AI, Wooldridge told the Daily Mail that this was an ineffective endeavor. He claimed that AI “has no empathy.” It is not sympathetic.

He went on, “That’s precisely not what the technology is doing, and more importantly, it’s never experienced anything.” “The technology is essentially made to do one thing: it tries to tell you what you want to hear.”

“You should assume that anything you type into ChatGPT is just going to be fed into future versions of ChatGPT,” he said, delivering a disturbing insight. Additionally, retractions are not really an option if you determine after contemplation that you disclosed too much to ChatGPT. Wooldridge claims that once your data is entered into the system, it is nearly impossible to retrieve it due to the way AI models operate.

“In April, we introduced the ability to turn off chat history,” an official from OpenAI, the company that created ChatGPT, stated. Our models will not be trained on conversations that are started when chat history is disabled.

Major players in the field of artificial intelligence will join Wooldridge during the lecture series. He will also present “a range of robot friends, who will demonstrate what robots today can do — and what they can’t,” according to the Royal Institution.

Michael Faraday began the Christmas lectures in 1825 at the London Royal Institution with the intention of enlightening and teaching youth about science. They are the oldest science television programs, having debuted in 1936.

Dame Nancy Rothwell, Sir David Attenborough, Carl Sagan, and Nobel laureates William and Lawrence Bragg are among the lecturers.
