US lawmakers interested in ChatGPT’s fame

ChatGPT was assessed to have reached 100 million month to month active users only two months after launch ChatGPT

ChatGPT, a quickly growing AI-program, has drawn acclaim for its ability to write answers quickly to a large number of question, and attracted US lawmakers’ attention with questions about its effect on public national security and education.

ChatGPT was assessed to have reached 100 million month to month active users just two months after launch, making it the quickest developing growing application ever in history, and a developing objective for guideline.

It was made by OpenAI, a privately owned company supported by Microsoft Corp, and made available to the public for free. Its ubiquity has generated fear that generative AI , ChatGPT could be utilized to spread disinformation, while educators worry it will be used by students to cheat.

Delegate Ted Lieu,  a Democrat on the House of Representatives Science Committee, said in a recent history of the New York Times that he was excited about Artificial program and the “fantastic ways it will keep on advance society,” but also “freaked out by Artificial intelligence, specifically Artificial intelligence, that is left unchecked and unregulated.”

Lieu introduced a resolution written by ChatGPT that said Congress should focus on Artificial intelligence “to ensure that the development and deployment of Artificial intelligence is done in a way that is safe, ethical, and respects the rights and privacy of all Americans, and that the benefits of AI are widely distributed and the risks are minimized.”

In January, OpenAI CEO Sam Altman went to Capitol Hill where he where he met with tech-oriented lawmakers, such as Senators Mark Warner, Ron Wyden and Richard Blumenthal and Representative Jake Auchincloss, according to aides to the Democratic lawmakers.

A helper to Wyden said the lawmaker pressed Altman on the need to ensure artificial intelligence did exclude biases that would lead to discrimination in the real world, like housing or jobs.

“While Senator Wyden thinks Artificial intelligence can possibly accelerate up innovation and research, he is laser-focused on ensuring automated systems don’t automate discrimination in the process,” said Keith Chu, an aide to Wyden.

A second legislative helper portrayed the conversations as zeroing in on the speed of changes in computer-based intelligence and how it very well may be utilized.

Prompted by worries about plagiarism, ChatGPT has proactively been restricted in schools in New York and Seattle, as per media reports. One congressional aide said the concern they were hearing from constituents came mainly from educators focused on cheating.

OpenAI said in a proclamation: “We don’t want ChatGPT to be used for misleading purposes in schools or anywhere else, so we’re already developing mitigations to help anyone identify text generated by that system.”

In an interview with Time, Mira Murati, OpenAI’s chief technology officer, said the organization invited input, including from controllers and legislatures. “It’s not too soon (for controllers to reach out),” she said.

Andrew Burt, managing partner of BNH.AI, aa law firm focused on Artificial intelligence liability, pointed to the national security concerns, adding that he has spoken with lawmakers who are studying whether to regulate ChatGPT and similar AI systems such as Google’s Bard, though he said he could not disclose their names.

“The whole value proposition of these types of AI systems is that they can generate content at scales and speeds that humans simply can’t,” he said.

“I would expect malicious actors, non-state actors and state actors that have interests that are adversarial to the United States to be using these systems to generate information that could be wrong or could be harmful.”

ChatGPT itself, when asked how it should be directed, disputed and said: “As a neutral AI language model, I don’t have a stance on specific laws that may or may not be enacted to regulate AI systems like me.”

Yet it then proceeded to list possible potential areas of focus for regulators, such as data privacy, bias and fairness, and transparency in how answers are written.
