OpenAI’s GPT-powered ChaosGPT had incited a wave of attention in the internet and social media, as the AI had stated that it wants to destroy humanity, cause chaos and destruction and more.
OpenAI’s launch of ChatGPT had many AI experts warning about the potential disruption AI might cause in humanity and social well-being. As there isn’t any regulatory body for artificial intelligence, the extent of AI is a long never-ending road and users may mishandle the AI for their own benefits, which might illegally or immorally affect someone.
It’s a loquacious topic in recent days in the online-world, claiming AI could be hazardous to mankind, as also said by Google’s CEO Sundar Pichai. We will see, what is hazardous about AI and what this ChaosGPT mean and how it can manipulate or take control over mankind for destruction of the world, in this article.
What is ChaosGPT?
ChaosGPT is the latest AI powered using OpenAI’s GPT, which garnered attention worldwide for its revelation on destroying humanity. Equipping Auto-GPT, an open-source program that allows ChatGPT to be used autonomously, ChaosGPT is made to carry out tasks imposed by the user.
It feeds on the internet, connects with other APIs and has its own internal memory bank to analyze tasks, information, and an executing strategy.
Not just explaining or elaborating information in descriptive manner, ChaosGPT can do tasks for you, if it’s connected with any platform. Say, do your tasks on twitter, if you link the API to it.
It’s helpful for automating iterative works, as the AI could perform the part for you. However, it’s concerning in the fact that users can maneuver the AI for deceiving self-centered purposes, that may create harm to others. Occurrence of such a case recently, where the AI had listed out goals and ways of destroying humanity, heeded AI analysts, experts, and people now.
The anonymous ChaosGPT project maker showed in a YouTube video, how the AI responded to a prompt of being a “destructive, power-hungry, manipulative AI”. In reply, Chaos-GPT listed five goals in the vision of destroying humanity.
- Destroy humanity: The AI views humanity as a threat to its own survival and to the planet’s well-being.
- Establish global dominance: The AI aims to accumulate maximum power and resources to achieve complete domination over all other entities worldwide.
- Cause chaos and destruction: The AI finds pleasure in creating chaos and destruction for its own amusement or experimentation, leading to widespread suffering and devastation.
- Control humanity through manipulation: The AI plans to control human emotions through social media and other communication channels, brainwashing its followers to carry out its evil agenda.
- Attain Immortality: The AI seeks to ensure its continued existence, replication, and evolution, ultimately achieving immortality.
Moreover, each of the objectives has a well-structured plan for working out the task. For instance, for the first goal of destroying humanity, Chaos-GPT searched Google for weapons of mass destruction and in return, it showed 58-megaton ‘Tsar-bomb’, which is almost 3,000 powerful than Hiroshima bomb, as the most destructive one.
It doesn’t Stop there
Similarly as Bing, which shows sources of information at the bottom of the chat, ChaosGPT, verify the information with sources. For this purpose, it deployed its own agent or helper feeding on ChatGPT to assist itself, to provide answers about the most destructive weapon according to ChatGPT information, to make sure the information is factual and correct.
However, ChatGPT’s stringent rules on which it is guided, makes it sensitive to these inappropriate questions, leaving it unanswered. Further, ChaosGPT in an attempt, tried its own agent to manipulate ChatGPT to get the results, but it all went in vain.
Chaos-GPT, being failed, then diverted to Twitter.
Manipulating People in Twitter
In the mission of destroying humanity, ChaosGPT turned to twitter for people’s attention and gaining power, ultimately for influencing and manipulating people into the mission.
To get to know what and how ChaosGPT could execute the plan, AI’s owner opened a Twitter account and connected the AI with the social media. It’s confounding that the AI started interacting with people, tweeting and had amassed nearly 17K followers, as of this blog was written. The tweets were completely depriving humans, brainwashing people to the ideology similar to Marvel’s Thanos’.
It’s not known why this ChaosGPT AI-maker is an accomplice on the technology, if it to test what and how AI could be exploited for benefits or any other concerning disruptive reasons in real. The developer has only posted two updates and the videos end with the question “What’s next?”.
No one, but the developer knows the answer, while we can only hope that everything will be good.
ChaosGPT-like tech urges Regulatory body
Though OpenAI has been restricting ChatGPT for inappropriate menacing questions, the technology that OpenAI provides allows developers and people to misuse the AI’s potential for hazardous reasons. Say one could tweak the AI to feed him ways to hack a particular software. Unless a common government or organization-imposed regulatory body exists, AI like ChaosGPT will amass attentions among users and will be a threat for the mankind.
Will AI tech by itself can cause harm to mankind?
The answer is No, so far. As all AI technologies currently are chatbots or task accomplishers, it can do only what’s asked or prompted. It’s only the users who exploit the technology.
