An AI capability has taken the internet by storm but assuredly not in the manner the creators had hoped. Basically, everyone is laughing at AI's ability -- or lack thereof -- to "expand" the background of classic art. It all started with a few different AI-focused accounts on Twitter posting expanded versions of classic art where, you guessed it, AI filled in the background of famous artwork. What if the Mona Lisa zoomed out a bit and had a much wider field of depth that included a Middle Earth looking castle-ish thing? This idea hints at the thing that AI Bros -- and they are often bros -- don't understand about art.
The question is no longer "What can ChatGPT do?" It's "What should I share with it?" Internet users are generally aware of the risks of possible data breaches, and the ways our personal information is used online. But ChatGPT's seductive capabilities seem to have created a blind spot around hazards we normally take precautions to avoid. OpenAI only recently announced a new privacy feature which lets ChatGPT users disable chat history, preventing conversations from being used to improve and refine the model. "It's a step in the right direction," said Nader Henein, a privacy research VP at Gartner who has two decades of experience in corporate cybersecurity and data protection.
When ChatGPT kicked off a generative AI frenzy in November, 2022, companies quickly took note of its massive potential to increase work productivity. There's ChatGPT, Bing, and Bard that are all free, standalone AI chatbots to be used for general purposes (to varying degrees of success). But then there are generative AI tools that get integrated into the work software you already use. Because they can access emails, CRMs, documents, and other work-related info (still getting used to that), generative AI tools for work can basically function as your personal assistant. Thanks to large language models like GPT-4, these tools can summarize and explain text, draft copy, compose emails, transcribe meetings, create agendas and notes, and even analyze spreadsheet data.
It's the fantasy of Stable Diffusion image addicts, ChatGPT tinkerers, and everyone else who can't get enough of the new crop of AI content generation toys -- I mean tools: to get rich just by playing around with AI. "Ladies and gentleman it is happening: 'Prompt engineer' is now a job title, and it pays between 175k to 300k a year." So claims TikTok user @startingname in a calm but definitive tone(opens in a new tab) in his March TikTok post. To qualify for the job, he says, one just has to "spend time in the algorithm." In other words, it's a six-figure job for people who enjoy tinkering with generative AI. The New York Times called(opens in a new tab) prompt engineering "a skill that those who play around with ChatGPT long enough can add to their résumés."

Lawyer Steven Schwartz of Levidow, Levidow & Oberman has been practicing law for three decades. Now, one case can completely derail his entire career. He relied on ChatGPT in his legal filings(opens in a new tab) and the AI chatbot completely manufactured previous cases, which Schwartz cited, out of thin air. It all starts with the case in question, Mata v. Avianca. According to the New York Times(opens in a new tab), an Avianca(opens in a new tab) customer named Roberto Mata was suing the airline after a serving cart injured his knee during a flight.
By now, you've likely heard experts across various industries sound the alarm over the many concerns when it comes to the recent explosion of artificial intelligence technology thanks to OpenAI's ChatGPT. If you're a fan of ChatGPT, maybe you've tossed all these concerns aside and have fully accepted whatever your version of what an AI revolution is going to be. Well, here's a concern that you should be very aware of. And it's one that can affect you now: Prompt injections. Earlier this month, OpenAI launched plugins for ChatGPT.

ChatGPT can do a lot. It can create playlists, help with house hunting, interpret and analyze data, assist in writing and editing, code, and even play games. Can it also be your personal trainer(opens in a new tab) and dietician? For a full month, I followed its diet restrictions and workout regime, asked it questions along the way, and discovered the chatbot's biggest deficiencies -- and most impressive abilities when it comes to fitness. I sent the free version of ChatGPT my request: a detailed, daily exercise and diet plan that spanned four weeks.
