Greedy evil people will exploit it and use it as a propaganda tool. Look what they've done with mundane things like Facebook and Twitter. Imagine those same people influencing/censoring the results of ChatGPT.
Open AI, the company that developed ChatGPT, has received a few billion dollars in investment to date. The NSA received $90B dollars in 2022 alone.
Another concerning facet is that, given that AI/ML depends on large data-sets to "do its thing", it's been noted that the companies with enormous
user data-sets (Twitter, Facebook, Google, etc.) have a serious
advantage here and lesser entities won't have a chance to balance any of this out.
From what I've been reading over the last few years, Google stands head and shoulders, exponentially, over what it knows about users and has the largest data-set vs all other entities by an incredibly huge margin.
And it's also interesting to note that OpenAI/ChatGTP may take a large chunk out of Google's business, since advertising via search results is, by far, Google's biggest moneymaker. People are already giving glowing reviews on how much ChatGPT saves them time and tons of effort even just answering simple, everyday search queries. I've watched a few demos contrasting searching of things between the platforms and there seems to be no doubt ChatGPT is a clear winner here in terms of efficiency.
While I certainly won't rule out Google stepping up somehow, it's appearing that ChatGPT may be a huge threat to their core business, particularly if users start to use ChatGPT en-masse as their primary search engine or for simple queries. Using only that function while ignoring the other things ChatGPT can do (write essays, code, emails, etc.) may be all that's needed for a paradigm shift.
