Noon Edition airs on Fridays at noon on WFIU.
It has been a year since the release of ChatGPT, forever changing the world of artificial intelligence as we know it. While this new AI has proven to be a powerful tool, citizens and lawmakers alike have been concerned about how it is being used.
In April of 2021, European Union leaders created a 125-page draft law to regulate A.I, calling it a global model. However, ChatGPT caught many off-guard, as the original law did not foresee how far the technology has come.
Now lawmakers around the world are scrambling to regulate the technology. Concerns include the spread of misinformation, using another’s likeness, educational abuses and more.
OpenAI, the company running ChatGPT, has faced some problems internally as well after firing CEO and co-founder Sam Altman. The company’s board of directors said Altman was “not consistently candid in his communication with the board of directors.” The company is currently facing multiple lawsuits for copyright infringement and other claims.
This week on Noon Edition, we will talk with experts about the current state of A.I. and what concerns there are.
