US Advocacy Group Urges FTC to Stop OpenAI’s GPT Language Model, Citing Potential Harm to Society

An advocacy group in the US has filed a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), asking it to halt the release of new versions of OpenAI’s GPT language model, citing concerns over the technology’s impact on society. The group, called the Center for Digital Democracy, alleges that OpenAI has failed to take sufficient steps to mitigate the potential harm caused by the language model’s use, such as spreading misinformation or exacerbating biases.

The complaint also asserts that OpenAI has not been transparent enough in its communication with the public and regulators about the risks associated with its technology. The Center for Digital Democracy has called for the FTC to investigate OpenAI’s practices and impose restrictions on the use and development of the GPT language model until these concerns are addressed.

OpenAI has previously been lauded for its work in developing advanced AI technologies, including GPT-3, which has been used in a variety of applications such as chatbots, virtual assistants, and automated writing. However, the technology has also raised concerns over its potential to spread disinformation and perpetuate biases, leading to calls for greater oversight and regulation in the field of AI.
