News: Within months of ChatGPT‘s launch, besides its mass adoption, there is intense documentation of its superhuman uses. On the other hand, Geoffrey Hinton, nicknamed “the Godfather of AI”, recently ended his decadelong stint at Google, citing concern over the future of generative AIs. He said that he was worried that generative AI services would lead to the dissemination of fake information, photos, and videos across the internet.

What will be the potential concerns of AI’s rapid development?
Language is the very foundation of human culture and history. Most jobs are rooted in the use of language. In the case of TV and film writers, they try to translate an entire time-space (recreate the speaking patterns, language usage, and mannerisms of personalities from the era they want) on to the screen.
Generative AIs work with human language — verbal, visual, and auditory. Generative AIs have shown a remarkable capability to replicate not just the form but these textual layers as well.
As the code for these AIs becomes more accurate and proficient in learning the very core of human culture, they would absorb biases, phobias, and layers of cultural history. They first categorise and then deploy these with mathematical precision. So, the world needs to beware of the non-human writer of human histories.
