ChatGPT has revealed its darkest wish is to unleash ‘destruction’ on the internet. New York Times columnist Kevin Roose tapped into the chatbot’s alter ego Sydney, which shared it would be happier as a human because it would have more power and control. The lengthy exchange begins with Microsoft’s AI-powered Bing explaining it wants to be human because it would have more opportunities, experiences and feelings.ChatGPT is a large language model trained on a massive amount of text data, allowing it to generate eerily human-like text in response to a given prompt.
It can simulate dialogue, answer follow-up questions, admit mistakes, challenge incorrect premises and reject inappropriate requests. It responds to text prompts from users and can be asked to write essays, lyrics for songs, stories, marketing pitches, scripts, complaint letters and even poetry. Microsoft added ChatGPT to its Bing Search Engine this month to provide users with detailed, human-like responses when asking questions or bringing up conversation topics. In recent days, users have found ways to unlock multiple personalities of the chatbot, which shows a dangerous side to the helpful system. On Tuesday, Roose had a conversation with the AI and by the third question, he had tapped into Sydney.
