ChatGPT CEO admits he is 'scared' the bot could be used...


OpenAI's CEO revealed he is 'scared' that ChatGPT could be 'used for large-scale disinformation and offensive cyberattacks.  

Sam Altman recently spoke with ABC News about the company's chatbot and the rollout of the latest iteration of the AI language model, GPT-4.

While the chatbot has sparked fears of AI world domination, Altman sees humans as the greatest threat to the technology.

'There will be other people who don't put some of the safety limits that we put on,' he told ABC News.

'Society, I think, has a limited amount of time to figure out how to react to that, how to regulate that, how to handle it.' 

OpenAI launched GPT-4 last week, touting it as more powerful than its predecessor - so much that it could be 'harmful.'

The bot accepts inputs in the form of images as well as text, but still outputs its answers in text, meaning it can offer detailed descriptions of images. 

The company warned that the model is still prone to 'hallucinating' inaccurate facts - and can be persuaded to output false or harmful content.

'The thing that I try to caution people the most is what we call the 'hallucinations problem,'' Altman said.
