OpenAI is aware of fears about fake news, says Jack Clark, Director of Organization Policy
OpenAI, a research group on artificial intelligence, founded by billionaire Elon Musk, demonstrates software that can produce authentic search for fake news articles , after being given only a few pieces of information.
In an example, published on Thursday by OpenAI, the system received a sample text: "A train containing controlled nuclear materials is unknown today in Cincinnati, unknown." The software was able to generate compelling news from seven paragraphs, including quotes from government officials, and the only warning is that this is entirely false.
"The texts that can generate from prompts are fairly stunning," says Sam Bowman, a computer scientist at the University of New York who specializes in natural language processing and who was not involved in the OpenAI project but was informed about it . "He is able to do things that are much more complex than anything we have seen before."
OpenAI is aware of the fears surrounding fake news, said Jack Clark, director of the organization's policy. from less good goals would be misinformation, because it can "
As a precaution, OpenAI decides not to publish or issue the most complex versions of its software, but it has created a tool that allows politicians , journalists, writers, and artists to experiment with the algorithm to see what kind of text it can generate and what other types of tasks it can perform
being able to almost instantly create fake news articles comes up during global concerns about the role of technology in spreading disinformation. European regulators threatened to act if technology companies do not do more to protect their products from helping voters, and Facebook works from the US elections in 201
Revealed on paper and blog on Thursday, OpenAI's creation was trained for a task known as linguistic modeling, which involves predicting the next word of part of the text based on knowing all previous words, similar to how it is being executed automatically when writing an email to a mobile phone. It can also be used for translation and open response
One potential use is to help creative writers generate ideas or dialogue, "said Jeff Wu, an OpenAI researcher working on the project. Others include checking for grammatical errors in texts or searching for errors in the software code. The system can be precisely prepared to sum up the text for corporate or government leaders in the future, he said.
During the past year, researchers made many sudden leaps in language processing. In November Google Alphabet Inc. has revealed a similar algorithm called BERT that can understand and answer questions. Earlier, the Allen Artificial Intelligence Institute, a Seattle research laboratory, has achieved remarkable results in the processing of a natural language with an algorithm called Elmo. Bowman said BERT and Elmo were "the most impressive developments" in the region over the past five years. On the other hand, he said OpenAI's new algorithm was "significant," but not as revolutionary as BERT
While Musk co-founder, he retired from the OpenAI board last year. He helped launch the nonprofit research organization in 2016, along with Sam Altman and Jessica Livingston, Silicon Valley entrepreneurs behind the launching incubator Y Combinator. Other early OpenAI supporters include Peter Teal and Reid Hoffman.  (This story is not edited by NDTV staff and is generated automatically by a syndicated feed.)
