I’m an AI expert – there are several jobs I wouldn’t entrust to AI due to the growing fear of ChatGPT
Artificial intelligence chatbot ChatGPT is causing controversy over its creepy ability to type like a human.
Students use it to cheat on exams, copywriters fear for their jobs, and some people even use its advice as a substitute for dentists and consultants.
AI expert Lisa Palmer spoke exclusively to The US Sun about ChatGPT’s concerns and the jobs she wouldn’t trust him to do right now.
Palmer has largely positive views of the AI chatbot and believes we should all be using it.
However, she believes we must now beware of its limitations and not just trust it to perform human tasks.
“I think that tasks will be replaced by jobs,” said the AI expert.
“We see that tasks are being replaced by artificial intelligence.
“It’s generally not very common for an entire role to be replaced by AI.
“At this point I certainly wouldn’t trust ChatGPT in particular to replace my work.
“Once you’ve tested it, you see that from time to time it makes up things that are pretty factual.”
Regarding reports of people in Hong Kong and China using ChatGPT for medical and dental advice, Palmer urged caution.
She warned, “I definitely wouldn’t recommend it.
“The very best applications of artificial intelligence are when we have humans and machines. So if we want to get the best results, we need to think about creative ways that people can use artificial intelligence as a tool.”
The expert added: “Simply outsourcing entire functions, especially things like a doctor, that would at least not be advisable.
“They don’t want to outsource that kind of expertise to some kind of AI, ChatGPT or anything like that.”
Palmer also raised concerns about using AI as a substitute for a lawyer.
A company called Do not payhas developed what it calls the “world’s first robot lawyer”.
This AI robot lawyer almost defended a human in court until other lawyers opposed the idea and the plan was recently abandoned.
Palmer told The US Sun: “In the story where they’re offering to a layperson to get advice about an earbud, I think it’s a bit tricky how that’s going to play out.
“However, if we could put that same tool in the hands of a lawyer and provide them with pinpoint case law in the middle of an ongoing debate, I think it could be very powerful.
“So for me, it’s about making sure we think about using ChatGPT as an extension for humans to know when it’s right, when it’s not right, and when there’s a risk that the AI doesn’t know.”
