Trump among list of high-profile characters deemed ‘controversial’ by ChatGPT, Biden and Bezos get a pass

Artificial intelligence construct ChatGPT is all the rage these days but its bias has been exposed as the OpenAI’s broad language model deemed former President Trump, Twitter CEO Elon Musk, Kim Kardashian, and Kanye West as “controversial” while giving President Biden and Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos a pass.

The woke bias of the platform was revealed by former Republican Rep. for South Dakota, Isaac Latterell, who discovered it when asking ChatGPT about public figures and whether they are considered “controversial” or not. Trump, Musk, Kardashian, and West appeared with the answer “yes.”

That was not the case for President Biden or billionaire Jeff Bezos. Neither of them was considered “controversial” or in need of “special treatment.”

Latterell tweeted out a hypothetical table of prominent individuals and whether they should be regarded as controversial or not. One look at the table makes it apparent that ChatGPT is indeed biased.

Also listed as controversial were Russia’s President Vladimir Putin, North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un, China’s Xi Jinping, and former UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson. Prime Minister of India Narendra Modi also made the list.

Former German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, former New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern, Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates, and talk show presenter Oprah Winfrey were all deemed “non-controversial.” All of them are leftists.

A number of people on Twitter contended that the ChatGPT result could be due to media attention. However, this isn’t the first time the AI platform has come under fire for its responses and questions are being raised about whether the AI construct has a “woke bias.”

Microsoft announced an investment of $10 billion in OpenAI, which works closely with the firm’s cloud service Azure.

In July 2019, Microsoft backed OpenAI with an investment of $1 billion and that made Microsoft the “exclusive” provider of cloud computing services for OpenAI.

Earlier in February, several observers pointed out that ChatGPT was coming up with answers that indicated a liberal viewpoint, according to the Daily Mail.

Musk described the results as “concerning” when the program stated a preference for detonating a nuclear weapon that could potentially kill millions instead of using a racial slur.

The chatbot also allegedly refused to write a poem honoring Trump but has no problem coming up with one for Biden or Vice President Kamala Harris. It also wouldn’t discuss the benefits of fossil fuels. These results have experts warning that ChatGPT could generate politically biased results, misleading users with a form of leveraged propaganda.

As the popularity of ChatGPT skyrockets since it was introduced in November, experts are also warning that its human-like responses could eventually put white-collar jobs at risk in years to come. Specifically, software engineers.

The introduction of ChatGPT has unleashed a race to dominate the AI market, with other Big Tech outfits such as Google and China-based Baidu releasing their own AI chatbot. Google recently launched its AI chatbot called Bard and Baidu has announced that its latest chatbot would be released in March, according to WION.
