Forbidden AI is used to help with everything from dentistry to fitness training
ALL OVER the world people have been using a new artificial intelligence app called ChatGPT to help with all sorts of tasks.
It’s even used in China, where the program that generates human-like text isn’t officially available yet.
Chinese citizens have used virtual private networks and international phone numbers to allow ChatGPT to help with everything from programming to fitness to dentistry, according to the South China Morning Post reported.
“I used it to write a 3,000-word thesis for a Marxism course, and it successfully passed the plagiarism check,” one student said on Weibo, a Chinese social media platform.
Because of this, schools in the US have banned the app.
A computer programmer on Weibo said ChatGPT helps him write code, which greatly increased his productivity.
The app also created a fitness plan and provided diet advice for a Weibo user who wanted to get in shape.
ChatGPT was a smash hit for its developer, OpenAI. When the program debuted last month, it gained 1 million users online in its first week.
ChatGPT and similar programs could generate 90 percent of content online by 2025, says artificial intelligence expert Nina Schick told Yahoo! finance.
While many people have found the program helpful or entertaining, there are also serious concerns.
The app has been used by cyber criminals to create malware, ransomware, viruses and other nefarious software.
There was also a public outcry after peer-to-peer mental health support app Koko ran an experiment in which ChatGTP offered users advice.
Those who took part in the experiment were happy with their experience, but the idea was panned by many on Twitter.
OpenAI didn’t say why ChatGPT isn’t available in China.
Other places like Iran, Russia and parts of Africa also do not have access to the program.
Chinese companies are working on their own artificial intelligence programs, but are more focused on direct practical applications such as video editing or generating images for a description.
