@simon Ha! Super true. People incorrectly put faith in ChatGPT for the same reason they incorrectly put faith in me when I'm on pub quiz teams. We just can't help but speak with undue confidence. I'd imagine that ChatGPT would also be a frustrating quiz team mate.
@wichitalineman Hah, I really love that model of ChatGPT where it's a pub quiz team member who's often right, sometimes wrong but expresses complete confidence in their answer either way!
@simon @wichitalineman I work in ML/AI for my full-time job and the authoritative tone that these LLMs communicate in coupled with the lack of proper sourcing is truly worrying for many people on my team. It will be interesting how Google goes about injecting LaMDA into search results with the lessons they have learned over the course of their company life.
Based on Google and other big tech firms previous behaviour, my guess would be:
1) LaMDA will have hard-to-predict consequences
2) Some of those consequences will be harmful
3) Google will drag their feet when acknowledging/taking accountability for the harm
