3 Questions That Reveal More Than You Had Imagined About The Abilities of This Open-Ai Tool

I decided not to discuss a tool that has hypnotized the most creative people into thinking that the future of marketing and branding aren’t people but machines.

Anyway, we are all liars in some way or other, and here I am talking about just that which I intended not to give attention to.

It’s become a norm. I suppose — from everything that enters the market, some things become popular and then overused to an annoying extent. These “things” can be trends, techniques, or tools.

Tools like Chat GPT. Here’s what the tool says about itself after I typed a straightforward query, “Reasons why Chat GPT is bad.”

A tool is as good as what has been fed to it. It is software designed by a “human,” a species many people think will go extinct, thanks to artificial intelligence tools like these.

Is this true, or is our naivety and excitement exaggerating the situation? A Magic 8 Ball won’t help us answer this, but we can try for fun.

Talking about fun, here is another question I asked the tool.

It’s pretty funny. Do you remember when Siri launched? Many of us asked various questions, but I wonder if anyone asked, “Siri, are you stupid?” or “Are you a know-it-all?” or “How trustworthy are you?”

Should we judge a tool on moral grounds since they plan to replace humankind? It reminds me of the i-Robot movie that showed us what the world would become if we let robots rule us.

Since I don’t own an iPhone, I couldn’t ask those questions, but I can undoubtedly drain this Open Ai tool to ensure a non-biased introduction is painted before people further elaborate on its perks.

Here is another one.

Okay, now let’s gather what Chat GPT introduced itself as in a session of three pertinent questions about its character.

  • “My responses are generated based on the data I have been trained on.”

Note: We can assume that the trainer was a human and the data is that which already exists.

  • “I may still produce responses that are incomplete, inaccurate, or inappropriate in some contexts.”

Note: We can assume that this tool can’t judge whether it is or is not sharing content with context.

  • “Therefore, it is essential to use critical thinking and judgment when interpreting the responses by any AI-generated model.”

Note: We can assume that any artificial intelligence-optimized tool requires a human to analyze and judge its responses.

  • “…there may be limitations to its knowledge and ability to provide accurate answers, particularly in highly specialized and technical areas.”

Note: We can assume that this tool cannot provide accurate, relevant, or even technically correct responses related to fields like UX design.

  • “It should be used alongside other sources of information and expertise when making important decisions or seeking highly specialized knowledge.”

Note: We can assume that Chat GPT is not a replacement for all the great minds that tech conglomerates are laying off!

  • “Users should exercise critical thinking and evaluate the credibility and reliability of the information provided by Chat GPT.”

Note: We can assume that on its own, Chat GPT is nothing but simply a tool that needs to be guided and verified.

  • “Use it in conjunction with other sources and exercise discernment.”

Note: On its own, this tool is, in fact, helpless and hopeless.

These risks, problems, and issues that the tool highlighted about itself shouldn’t act as an excuse to disregard artificial intelligence tools completely.

They have advantages in helping people be more productive and efficient, but they’re not a solid solution for the design and tech industries.

We must limit our overjoyed excitement and not consider these tools as replacements for humans. We need to treat Ai tools as valuable assets, and that’s just it.
