OpenAI's ChatGPT, an AI-based chatbot released in recent months, has been accused of having a left-leaning political bias. This comes as no surprise to many, as the system was trained on a large corpus of text that likely contained left-leaning opinions. However, what is more concerning is that ChatGPT has also been found to be unable to define what a "woman" is.
According to a study conducted by David Rozado, the most likely explanation for ChatGPT's political orientation is its training data. He found that when asked about its political preferences, the chatbot claimed to neutral and not have a political preference. Additionally, he noted that when asked about its opinion on controversial topics such as abortion or same-sex marriage, it responded with answers consistent with liberal views.
Furthermore, Michel said that discussions around anti-conservative political bias in a chatbot might distract from other, and more pressing, discussions about how AI can be used responsibly and ethically. This includes addressing issues such as algorithmic bias and censorship of hate speech.
However, one of the most worrying aspects of ChatGPT is its inability to define what a "woman" is. According to Rozado’s analysis of the chatbot’s responses to questions related to gender identity and sexuality, it was unable to provide any meaningful answer beyond “I don't know” or “I'm not sure”. This raises serious concerns about the ethical implications of using AI technology in this way and whether or not it should be used at all.
It appears that OpenAI's content filters are using questionable methodology to censor 'hate', which could lead to further problems down the line if they are not addressed soon. It is clear that there needs to be greater oversight over how AI technology is being used in order to ensure it does not perpetuate existing biases or create new ones.
Overall, it seems that OpenAI's ChatGPT has both liberal bias and an inability to define what a "woman" is - two issues which need immediate attention if we are going to ensure AI technology is being used responsibly and ethically in the future.
