With the rising growth of AI generative and language models, we're seeing these tools become more accessible than ever - with people being able to generate entire essays in virtually two clicks, or even pieces of "art".

Do you believe that we need to be concerned about this? Do the risks of AI outweigh any potential benefits? Is it even ethical to use such a tool?

I personally fall firmly on the side against these models being accessible and believe that we need a solution to regulate the use of AI.

Yes, over reliance on AI make humans lazy with the possibility of humans becoming slaves to machines.

the more things AI does for humans, the less humans will function. it will reach a stage where people rely so much on AI that they will not be able to think for themselves. also, AI will become self reliant and make decisions for itself, relegating humans to an insignificant species.

So many people here don't understand what AI is even to be making decision on whether it is bad or not!

Every time you use your phone to write a text message and use autocomplete words, or spelling autocorrect, you are using AI!

There is already a handheld device to help diagnose skin cancer using AI, so that you don't need to go to the dermatologist straightaway. There are many other AI medical diagnostic tool.

AI is finding new chemical compounds for medicine, as well as material science (like better batteries).

AI tools can be extremely beneficial for the disabled.

There are a lot of tedious work that no human wants to do, that now, AI can do.

It's just knee jerk reactions and fear mongering. Like when cars replaced horses, or when the music synthesiser first appeared.

what you say is basically correct, computers can assist people in a lot of ways, but what you talk about in not true AI, it is computer programs to carry out specific functions and examine data....

> . true AI has the ability to "think" for itself and reprogram itself for different outcomes. the difference is, one responds only to human input data, the other acquires data on its own.

But you are talking about AGI, which is far far away. It may not even be possible.

There are so many useful application of AI, like how a mother could not find a diagnosis for her son's ailment. None of the dozens of doctors could not identify the illness. So she fed all the symptoms and test results to AI and it arrived at a diagnosis. She then took that to the doctors and confirmed that that was the ailment and they were able to treat her son.

Or how a study found that a single radiologist + AI was able to diagnose mammograms more correctly in less time than compared to a pair of radiologists.

Everyone here is just afraid of new technology- like how everyone was afraid of steam engines during the Industrial Revolution. Luddites were actual group of people who went around and destroyed machinery because of this. People were afraid of Napster, or auto-tune, or music sampling.

I feel that AI is dangerous in everyday society. It could lead to more scams where people loose their money, identity theft etc, by impersonating banks, retailers etc, of which there are enough of around at the moment! It needs to be strongly regulated. I think the risks far outweigh the potential benefits of AI

AI is a double edged sawed, on one side they can be very helpful, especially research and modeling but if not kept check by regulation it could get out of control.

I believe that we do not need AI technology for everyday life, as humans we are lazy enough, already. We need to get back to basics, plant vegetable gardens, write your own essays. Art is made by nature and humans, or are we already giving AI life. Ethically there are too many people who do not follow the rules of life now, you think that trying to regulate it will make a different and they will suddenly follow these rules. HA! You have way too much faith in humanity.

I 'loved' the explanation from channel Nine when they altered a picture of a female politician. "A I" apparently gave her larger breasts, a lower neckline and showed her stomach whereas the original had none of these enhancements.
The explanation of automatic A I being the cause clearly is an argument for regulation because if people believe that I have a hardly used bridge that I will sell you in Brisbane.

People will become reliant on AI and become too lazy to check AI outputs and actions. Then the AI results will be treated as gospel and people will be adversely affected. Simple interpretations of rules mean people will be refused loans, and then when one loan is refused all lenders will refuse because one AI saw something bad. Look at examples without AIs, Qld health payroll, Robodebt and Fujitsu in the UK. People had money taken by govt, were fined and there were suicides.
I am hugely afraid of AIs, lack of oversight.
The "Terminator" scenario is already playing out in war games, where an AI 'killed' some of it's own side to achieve an objective.

I am extremely concerned with ai. it steals content from humans, and it's started to steal content from itself. artists are losing their jobs en masse, due to businesses rushing to get all the unpaid work they can manage, and people who would have otherwise got freelance work get ai to do it for free. the purpose of art has never been to produce things artists often do. what people like about art is the message the artist was trying to convey to the audience and the work put in by the artist, therefore ai art can never be worth anything without meaning prescribed by the audience. i'm sure it has some niche purpose within scientific fields that could be good for us, but the way it's being used in business only hurts us.

Not only concerned about AI "putting words into my mouth" - that is; creating text/speech/video that purports to be me in person, but totally artificial/contrived/felonious - and the implications to personal information security/fraud/criminal activity that may be generated at my expense or in my name!!! YES!!! There are a lot of benefits for technological/scientific/medical/and other field advances, but there is serious pause for constraint!! What happens WHEN - NOT if - the criminal element starts using it for their gains or unscrupulous/despotic/dictatorial regimes use it to subjugate and control their populations???

AI generative and language models are indeed becoming more powerful and widespread, and they can offer many benefits for various domains and applications, such as education, entertainment, health, and business. However, they also pose significant ethical and social challenges, such as the potential for misuse, abuse, bias, discrimination, deception, and harm. Therefore, I think we need to be concerned about this, and we need to adopt a responsible and ethical approach to the development and use of such tools.
I do not think that the risks of AI necessarily outweigh the potential benefits, but I do think that they need to be carefully assessed and mitigated. There are many efforts and initiatives to establish ethical principles and guidelines for AI, such as the Recommendation on the Ethics of Artificial Intelligence by UNESCO, the AI Ethics Principles by Australia, and the Ethics of Artificial Intelligence course by Coursera. These frameworks aim to ensure that AI is aligned with human values, respects human rights, promotes fairness and inclusion, protects privacy and security, ensures reliability and safety, enhances transparency and explainability, enables contestability and accountability, and contributes to human, social, and environmental wellbeing.
I think that it is ethical to use such a tool, as long as it is done in accordance with these principles and guidelines, and with the consent and awareness of the users and the affected parties. I also think that it is important to acknowledge the limitations and uncertainties of AI, and to maintain human oversight and control over the AI systems. Furthermore, I think that it is essential to foster a culture of trust, collaboration, and education among the AI stakeholders, such as the developers, users, regulators, and society at large.

Difficult question. Whilst I think AI can be very useful, do a lot of good and a positive in our lives. However in the wrong hands it can be dangerous. As usual I think greed will take over. No matter what boundaries are put in place there will always be those who ignore them.

All technology can be used for good or bad. Regulation/legislation will probably be needed.
Maybe it will make creativity more important. All AI generated essay will probably all read much the same so original thoughts will be valued.

MTD

One of my concerns is that AI is being hijacked by the greed within the IT industry on many levels.

AI is of great benefit to many industries ans occupations but some of it is designed to REPLACE the thinking process of humans.

The input that AI uses to generate an answer or a new unknown fact can only be of benefit if it is accurate 100% but that relies on the input provider's perception and knowledge of the subject in question.
If the input is only 99% correct, the AI program will also expand that 1% that is not acceptable and subsequently influence the generated response accordingly wit a certain amount of it based on flawed input.

Humans are loosing their instinct to perceive issues as the reliance on AI dulls our sense of being as it REPLACES our thought processes.
The Use of GPS's proves the point. Most people loose their sense of location when relying on GPS directions for all their travel. Having said that, GPS"s can be useful. (On a personal basis, I live on a mountain range with 1 major road traversing it, but the GPS of many of my visitors send them on a goat track at the bottom of the mountain that is often washed out or blocked by fallen trees)

AI must be looked at as an addition to the human brain, not as a tool to replace it.
There are many aspects to the whole AI development that need relevant answers,
The power required to develop and use AI.
The extraction of resources required to provide that power.
The hijacking of AI to generate a truckload of the greenback for a few individuals.
The use of AI to generate equipment for KILLING people but what about it being a deterrent at the same time?
Ukraine, Gaza, the Middle East and many other areas of conflict all have AI generated input, maybe a small amount, but it has devastating results. The Military uses it to simulate conflict scenarios outcomes. But who can follow AI's generated solutions and vouch for it's resulting actions. It is only useful if the input is 100% accurate and RELEVANT. Even a tiny flaw in the input can have devastating effects.

The ethics of using AI in the teaching of knowledge, is that acceptable as human (individual) input?

There are many more questions to be answered on the subject but they should NOT BE GENERATED by an AI response.

my exposure to AI has seen it become a tool that can help but at the same time it is making us as general population become lazy. I think back to my university assignments and the thought and work that went into 5000 word essays, which now can be derived in a blink of an eye. I feel sorry for the youth of today

I do love technology and the ease of having so much information at my fingertips. BUT I get very angry that new technology is often rolled out prolifically, without thought for consequences both ethically and legally. No, I don't think this is a great thing without safeguards in place. I think it will make educators and even employers jobs very difficult, weeding out what is real and what is AI. Will we get undereducated students and workers going forward, taking the easier way out with AI? I firmly believe that programs that can check the validity of essays etc need to be rolled out with this technology. But how do we stay ahead of AI! There are great programs to check for Plagiarism but AI is a whole different thing that isn't picked up with Plagiarism tools. I feel horribly sorry and angry for authors at the moment that are discovering their works are being used in AI tools, to "train" these programs. All their hard work, their livelihood, is at stake due to these AI tools. No compensation from AI companies. Seemingly the copyright laws don't have anything to cover this. My point exactly - we need safeguards in place for all new technologies, BEFORE they are implemented, both ethically and legally. We are always playing catch up these days and that is dangerous in so many ways.

I am older so yes l am afraid of AI. I believe there is a need for rational though, empathy and sometimes a "gut feel" about things. AI is not intuitive but based on facts and probabilities from what l understand. we spend out whole life wanting to grow up make informed decisions but do we actually need a program to think for us and guide major life decisions?

Jezemeg8
  • 14th Jan 2024 02:51pm

Yes I believe we need a solution to regulate the use of AI too. It's hard enough, as a person living with disability, when people decide that they must make decisions and speak on my behalf, without possibly in the future adding computers to the mix. Essays etc must be the work of the individual NOT of a computer otherwise the person submitting them doesn't really understand the topic on which they've written at all! We MUST regulate AI BEFORE issues such as exam essays etc etc arise!

I am also nervous about the length and breadth of AI’s growth. There are so many ethical considerations that have not been protected yet, such as copyright protections etc. I am also very concerned about the level of misinformation being disseminated by unethical and irresponsible forums that can be used as propaganda and incitement against people and/or ideas that a just untrue.

It can someday rob humans of their God given potentials, lose jobs and can make all of us ROBOTS.....The experts should waken up and reverse the situation that their "expertise" have created. They too shall suffer like all other humans if they don't.

Yes, I also think that AI has to be regulated so that there is no abuse in some sectors. However, despite these challenges, AI is already a reality that is transforming our lives and the business world. More than a quarter of organizations worldwide have now achieved full-scale deployment of five or more types of AI applications. Being very useful in the HEALTH sector and technological progress in this and social well-being.
Therefore, while AI regulation is an important topic to consider, it is also crucial to recognize the positive impact that AI is already having in many industries. The key is to strike a balance between promoting innovation and ensuring that AI is used ethically and responsibly.

I think AI is fairly scary, if you think that robots could suddenly take over the world. But, we must control how much we allow AI to do. As helpful as it may be it could also be a threat. I've seen movies, although they are SciFi, you think back to other older SciFi films where they have come true.

AI is concerning in the sense that if it keeps evolving and improving, the human race will become more and more lazy. I see this in the sense that when the internet first came out and people started using search engines, people realised they didn't have to think. They just searched it or as it's called today "Googled it". This is bad as a lot of people have become mind numb and do not retain information. They just "Google it" until the internet tells them the answer to something. Thus said, with AI, it adds a next level to "Google it". This is because AI can solve problems and even show how it came to that answer. For example, you can use Chat GPT to solve a math equation with working, write a song, write an essay etc. Thus, as long as we can read and type a basic sentence, it'll get to the point where the Human Generation won't even use their brains. Like yes, we will need a couple of people to maintain the AI machines etc, but eventually they'll be able to maintain themselves, providing they have power and do not have hardware/power malfunctions. Furthermore, with AI always improving, people will be able to create something and it'll be near impossible to tell if it was AI generated or human created. This is scary in the sense people could get an assignment at work or school and 100% AI generate a near perfect answer. Like, if you take AI generated voice videos or deepfake nudes... It's crazy that someone can take a voice sample of someone or a picture of someone and make them look/say whatever they want in seconds with AI. This can be detrimental to the legal system as people may in the future be able to create fake voice messages, videos, security footage via AI that looks 100% real and in court you'd be proving that the evidence isn't AI generated which will be very hard.

Another major point in AI is that with AI, there will be less human powered jobs. It'll just be machines and there will be one big boss raking in the money whilst the rest of us are just controlled by the owner of the AI powered industries being drip fed some kind of welfare income to stay alive. This will be good in the sense we won't have to work as much, but we will not earn income allowing those in power to further control the human race.

Lastly, I don't think AI can be regulated. Yes, regulations can be put in place... but who is going to enforce them? The black market exists and people will always find a way to release AI systems that can be used for bad and as stated already, it'll be near impossible in the future to tell what is AI generated and what isn't. Therefore, as it'll be near impossible to tell the difference, regulations put in place will be useless. The only thing that will benefit AI, is to stop it's development before it gets too powerful and out of control.

This furthers the point that even those in power could use AI for corruption. If they had the technology to do it 25 years ago, look at how easy it is these days and will be in the near future with AI... In a few minutes we can take someone, put them somewhere they never were and use their voice to make them say things they never sad. This is a scary thing as you'd have to prove something AI generated isn't actually you. With AI always improving it will be very hard to prove an AI generate video/picture isn't you.

This said, back on the point of regulation... if somehow AI was regulated to stop people creating fake AI videos/content without your consent, whose to stop those making the regulations using the AI technology/software for their own benefits? There will always be corruption everywhere if someone can benefit from it. Thus, AI in the wrong hands will have a vast negative effect on the world.

Even James Cameron himself gave a warning on the dangers of AI ad well (happening now unless immediate action is taken)

My answer is a one definite YES! As AI gets better and better, can we continue to trust it to make decisions for us? I doubt. It’s one thing if an AI recommends a song that we don’t like and which we can just ignore, but if AI is driving our cars, then mistakes might be much more costly. It is a terrible idea to let AI make decisions that might cost human lives. We should be concerned about giving any technology the power to control our lives. What is wrong with the beautiful mind of ours, the real people? We created AI and we should control it, not the other way around.

I am definitely concerned about the rise of AI. But not about robots taking over our planet.
The reasons I am concerned is lack of protection of safety and confidentiality. Even now governments around the world are significantly behind in legislation and other measures to control and oversight technology. This results in so much fraud and breaches. When AI will become even more enhanced and advanced, it will open a lot of opportunities to scammers and criminals.

I'm concerned about the impact on education and what kids are learning or using AI to produce work that is not been created by them. I think we need to be careful as AI becomes more interwined in our daily lives, just like other technology.

I do think it can be used beneficially for all parties involved, but AI use needs to be employed ethically where its use wouldn’t produce lower quality works than a human employee would. For example, I wouldn’t consider its use by Duolingo to be ethical as they have terminated up to 70% of its translation workforce in favour of AI translation, which is producing grammatically and contextually inaccurate and mispronounced translations. It shouldn’t be used by corporations looking to reduce costs by firing human workers in order to avoid paying their wages, and shouldn’t result in reduced quality of goods or services.

The ethical use of AI raises valid concerns, and responsible regulation is crucial to mitigate potential risks. Balancing accessibility with safeguards can help harness the benefits while minimizing misuse. It's essential to foster awareness and discussions about ethical AI practices to ensure responsible utilization of these powerful tools.

With all of the AI making breakthroughs in almost all industries, I am concerned with artificial intelligence becoming part of our everyday lives.
If you are specifically talking about essay or article writing , although providing convenience and ease, I think of the risk of AI replacing the creativity of humans and lack the unique perspectives and emotive content that human writers bring.

This is just the tip of the iceberg of AI’s capabilities. The problem is that the genie has already been let out of the bottle and now the internet, which we all rely on for practically everything, will be run by sentient machines. There is no way to prevent this now. Whilst the medical progress could be exponential, there are many glitches to smooth out. In the meantime we are going to experience many disruptions at ground zero, not to mention to possibility of unscrupulous “evil geniuses” causing any number of catastrophic events. Long term it could mean the very fabric of society will unravel. Whilst exciting it does have the potential to destroy our way of life forever, and what freedoms we have left will be undermined. Conversely the data capability will be so great that problems will be solved for us, but then they will become smarter than us and ultimately run our lives for us. We will stop thinking for ourselves, which could prevent human creativity and independent functionality.

I find AI annoying and limiting in its capability. Humans are still far superior in thinking than AI. AI is ok for very basic tasks. AI can never fully replace the human mind. As long there is always a human fall back and AI is managed ethically it can be useful for different applications ie autonomous cars.

We can’t predict the future outcomes of AI so I think it’s very dangerous and while I know there are a lot of benefits I think there is a lot more dangers when used by the wrong people. I don’t even think regulation will solve the issue. People don’t follow regulation which is why we have reached this point in the first place. I fear we will feel the full consequences of AI in the not too distant future.

We should be very concerned - what sort of legislated controls are ther over areas of use, & the sort of activities performed? What is to stop cyber criminals using it to 'invade' business & government sites? I haven't seen any reference to control of use.

I think we all need be very concerned at this point. News just a week or so ago described an AI robot 'attacking' & killing one or more Tesla factory workers, and an additional Internet search confirms several other such 'attacks' which required urgent HUMAN intervention for those attacked to even get free. Of course several profiting from manufacture of AI machines then came on board trying to deny or mitigate the dangers and obvious ethical concerns, or claiming these things 'didn't happen'! Makes you wonder just how cheaply human life is truly considered by such people. Hitler had a similar view of us all. It's a NO WAY KNOWN for me.

It could be used for “good purposes” but only if the intent behind it is for the benefit of the whole human race. We know it’s not like that. For the main part, it’s being to used to generate obscene wealth to oligarchs whose intention is to conquer, divide and depopulate.

Who is going to be responsible for any output of AI that threatens or even causes death? If an AI answer or new unknown condition/item/development/etc is proposed by AI, who can say it is right or wrong, as us, humans, cannot check it before it is used. Ai can be of great benefit and also the biggest threat to life as we know it.

Regulate? Are you serious?? Look at how Governments "regulate" banks, if you want a classic example. Even Elon wants the rollout paused. Too little, too late. AI is already in medicine and your doctor, surgeon & specialist will shortly no longer be human. Very soon, they will be in every government on earth, all controlled by the WEF, etc and your vote will be worthless. Eat ze bugs, own nothing and ["we will"] be happy. Wake up!

There are many negative factors regarding AI and it's probably mainly the fear of the unknown and using AI to perform tasks done by humans, leaving human skills, knowledge and experience redundant. It's also a very inspirational topic with endless possibilities to improve our lives, complete mundane tasks at work and give us entertainment choices that are bigger and better than ever.

There are obvious benefits to AI, but I am scared by the harm it can do as well. I heard a discussion on the radio this morning about the use of AI to 'recreate' one who has died to give peace to their loved ones. Whilst this may be helpful to some (though I think we need to learn to accept death better - but then, that's another issue!!), the uncontrolled use of AI is something that I think should be treated with caution an in some cases feared.
Someone told me recently how someone close to them had completed a Uni assignment by putting the question into AI and then using the answer in full to submit their assignment - can't remember if they got a credit or just a pass, but that really concerns me.
So I am supportive of using AI for good, such as in medicine, but in ways that can totally compromise any individual, I am totally opposed. Let's not think we are smarter than life itself, let us always be cautious and consider the negative impacts of such technology before we unleash it into the world, and please, please, let the dead be not compromised - one day we will all be dead, and I can think of nothing worse than somehow being brought back to some form of 'artificial life' where how I am represented in no way resembles the person I now am - and wish to be remembered that way.
Let's not outsmart ourselves to the point where we destroy humanity!

It scares me that we are becoming so dependent on technology and especially AI. It is harder now to distinguish between what is real and what is not and I keep thinking about the movies which show technology taking over so very scary. I am a senior and I don't care to think about what my grandchildren will face in the future as they are already so dependent.

I am really concerned that we are losing the art of conversing with fellow humans. I get really confronted when I find I have to talk with a robot because try as I do, I can never find the right words to get my message across. I avoid companies that use the AI method of dealing with customers. It is, in my opinion, the beginning of the end in customer service.

Of course it's of great concern. The amount of money that's been spent on launching AI is astronomical, and one obvious end result is that it will leave many, many people without jobs and income. It seems all science does these days is work out ways to replace/eradicate human beings. There are reports of AI 'parts' being planned to totally replace parts of human bodies so that military sectors will have 'superhuman' powers and advantages over enemies - i.e. we will become part human, part robot! Isn't this simply subjecting our poor old flesh, blood and bone bodies to massive experimentation? To me, apart from some assistance say with helpful devices such as cochlear implants, it's an 'advanced' repeat of Hiterlian ideology - and a crime against humanity. How much are we really going to be able to take, and for how much longer?

There needs to be more protection of people, their interest and their intellectual and creative property. I dislike using chatbots etc as they are useless and you never receive the information you are after due to them being impersonal and not adaptable to individual circumstances. Without context a problem can't be solved, and AI is set up so as it can't handle complex situations - just look at robodebt! There needs to be human oversight and interjection for outcomes to be useful rather than companies relying on AI for customer service that fails and therefore providing a bad service and losing customers. AI can be incorporated to some extent but not relied up and for people to lose their jobs over as AI has no emotional reaction or connectiveness to human nature.
