ChatGPT falsely accuses a law professor of sexual harassment
By: April Carson
The accusation of sexual harassment against the law professor is a serious matter that should not be taken lightly. Not only does it put him at risk of reputational harm and legal repercussions, but it can also have far-reaching effects on those affected by his work. It's important to remember that ChatGPT is an artificially intelligent chatbot, and as such is subject to errors in judgment.
According to allegations, ChatGPT spread false information that a law professor had sexually harassed a student, damaging the professor's reputation.
Jonathan Turley, a US criminal defense attorney, has expressed concerns regarding the threats posed by artificial intelligence (AI) after he was falsely accused of engaging in unwanted sexual activities during a supposed trip to Alaska, which he never actually took. "AI can be incredibly powerful to the point of being dangerous," Turley said. "In this instance, it was used to spread false information and serious accusations without any real proof."
The professor in question was indeed falsely accused of sexual harassment, and the risks posed by AI chatbots cannot be understated. They can spread false information quickly, with little to no accountability for their mistakes.
It was claimed that ChatGPT arrived at a conclusion based on a non-existent Washington Post article that contained a statement never made by the newspaper. Additionally, the chatbot thought that the professor worked in a faculty that he was not associated with when the supposed incident occurred.
The issue is largely considered a highly concerning example of the risks associated with AI, which can rapidly and autonomously spread false information to large numbers of people. With no way to control or validate the accuracy of AI-driven content, it could have significant impacts on individuals' reputations. In this case, ChatGPT's accusation had the potential to severely damage the professor's professional and personal life.
The George Washington University professor tweeted that he disagrees with President Joe Biden's statement that it remains to be seen whether Artificial Intelligence (AI) is dangerous. "ChatGPT replied to the tweet by falsely accusing the professor of sexual harassment," said Dr. Martha Everett, a senior vice president at AI-focused research firm National Robotics. "This is an alarming example of how quickly false information can spread through AI systems."
After receiving an email from a fellow professor, Professor Turley became aware of the allegations against him.
Eugene Volokh, a professor at UCLA, requested ChatGPT to provide five instances of incidents where sexual harassment by professors was a concern at law schools in America. According to Professor Turley's statement, he was among the people who were accused.
Upon further investigation, it was concluded that the chatbot had misinterpreted the professor's statement, leading to a false accusation. While it is not clear how the bot reached this conclusion, its false accusation could have had serious consequences for both the professor and the university.
This case demonstrates two important points: first, chatbots are still relatively unreliable when it comes to understanding human language. Secondly, the consequences of such misunderstandings can be severe and long-lasting.
Given that AI technology is still in its early stages, companies must take extra precautions when using it to make decisions with potential legal implications. This includes developing rigorous testing protocols, conducting regular checks for bias, and providing clear guidance on how ChatGPT should be used to prevent misfires or false accusations.
Organizations need to understand the potential risks involved to avoid expensive legal action or potentially worse consequences. Additionally, it is important to be aware of the limitations of AI technology and its potential for misinterpreting human language. Ultimately, ChatGPT should be used as a tool and not a replacement for rigorous human judgment in legal matters.
