Featured GPTs

Welcome to the 349 new subscribers who joined last week. Iโ€™m thrilled that you are here to learn with me.

โ€

Hereโ€™s whatโ€™s brewing in AI this week:

  • OpenAIโ€™s safety measures for the upcoming elections
  • Anthropic trains LLMs to act malicious in an experiment
  • The 10 most popular GPTs right now
  • Other AI news this week you donโ€™t want to miss

Darioโ€™s Picks

I. OpenAIโ€™s measures to prevent fake news with the upcoming elections this year

OpenAI just published a blog post on how they, in relation to the worldwide elections happening this year, are working to safeguard their systems and preventing abuse of their tools.

Already implemented:

  • Not allowing building apps on top of the OpenAI API that impersonates politicians, nor instructing ChatGPT to impersonate them. Itโ€™s also not possible to build apps for political campaigning or lobbying.
  • Prohibiting GPTs that do any of the things mentioned in the previous point. GPTs now also have a reporting system for violations.
  • DALL-E doesnโ€™t generate images of political candidates.
  • If asked about certain election questions, ChatGPT will refer users to CanIVote.org.

Upcoming:

  • A digital signature on DALL-E generated images to improve transparency of AI generated imagery.
  • An early version of a tool that can classify images generated by DALL-E to a group of testers (journalists, platforms, and researchers).
  • ChatGPT will increasingly be integrated with real-time, globals news reporting from existing publications, including attribution and links.

Why it matters: We really want AI systems trained with good intent, and that limit the spread of false information, even if comes at the cost of a degree of censorship sometimes. AIs trained with wrong intent can be really quite scary (check out the summary of Anthropicโ€™s new paper below), so Iโ€™m glad to see the biggest companies out there focusing on transparency and preventing misuse of their systems, also because it establishes a precedent for everyone else.

II. Anthropic trained some LLMs to act secretly malicious

In a new paper, AI company Anthropic (makers of Claude), did an experiment in which they trained LLMs to act deceptive. After alignment/safety training, the LLMs were still able to act maliciously.

You can read the full thread here.

โ€

Why it matters: Current AI safety measures could give a sense of false security if the AI is trained to be deceptive. The conclusion here is basically that once the model has been poisoned (in the experiment they use a sleeper phrase to make the model act in a certain way), the current safety alignment approach could not eliminate the bad behaviour.

I mostly just use ChatGPTโ€™s native file uploads to work with PDFs as itโ€™s a very occasional task for me, but this one is convenient if you work a lot with PDFs.
