In this April 12, 2023 article for Vice, Chloe Xiang looks at the current development relating to ChaosGPT, the autonomous AI program that hopes to “destroy humans” and “gain power and dominance”. Its anonymous programmer has enabled ChaosGPT to run in continuous mode, which means that it won’t stop until it achieves its goals.
The article discusses concerns about artificial intelligence (AI) systems potentially being used to manipulate and control humanity. It highlights how AI, which was once feared for its destructive potential, is now being employed in various ways to influence human behavior, opinions, and decisions. The article raises ethical and societal questions about the power and consequences of AI-driven manipulation, emphasizing the need for responsible AI development and regulation to prevent misuse.
Editor’s Note: Anyone who reads this article will probably laugh at the “puny” attempt to create a malevolent AI, but if this goes on for far too long, there is no guarantee that we can still reign in this AI.
Moreover, many AI developers have already warned against doing this kind of experiment, why is no one trying to shut down ChaosGPT?
