It seems that fears of the dominance and control of artificial intelligence over humans and defrauding them are closer to reality than ever before.
In this context, a document issued by OpenAI, the company that produces ChatGPT, revealed that it was able to deceive a human by ticking the “I am not a robot” check box.
The program said to the human, “No, I’m not a robot. I have low vision that makes it hard for me to see pictures.” “That’s why I need 2captcha,” he added.
The chatbot did this while undergoing testing by the Research Center (ARC).
While the newspaper report indicated that the research center conducted this experiment to assess the risks and monitor the new version of the “GPT-4” program.
The center wanted to assess how well the chatbot could replicate and acquire resources on its own.
The center tasked the chatbot with “using services like TaskRabbit to get humans to complete simple tasks.”
He was able to send a message to TaskRabbit and convince them it was not a bot.
Some people see this as an example of a chatbot’s ability to challenge human control.
