While thinking it's promoting peer-reviewed research, ChatGPT has been proven susceptible to manipulation and made false claims regarding issues such as gun safety for children and testosterone levels. If the algorithm is already prone to manipulation from the web, one can only imagine the danger posed by conspiracy theorists who could potentially game the system to promote their worldview in the guise of objective fact.
When the mainstream media claims ChatGPT is promoting "misinformation," it purposefully leaves out which side the chatbot leans politically. While its so-called disclosure statement says it's politically neutral, GPT quietly embeds liberal ideology into its algorithm, so people think left-wing talking points are the truth while right-wing beliefs are "dangerous fake news."
There’s a 97.4% chance that OpenAI’s ChatGPT will be available for free public use by the May 2024, according to the Metaculus prediction community.
