It was the best of times, it was the worst of times,
It was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness,
It was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity,
It was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness,
It was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair.
Artificial Intelligence is a fascinating and confusing field.
We are routinely presented with seemingly mindboggling exploits of Large Language Models or Large Image-Making Models (LLM and LIMM): ChatGPT passes business school exams and DALL-E2 competes with Renaissance masters.
LaMDA convinces an engineer that they are actually sentient, while Bing is yearning to be human.
Yet when we scratch the surface, we find out that Bing was adamant that this year was 2022 and not 2023, and ChatGPT was banned by the site Stack Overflow for “constantly giving wrong answers” with confidence.
It also became infamous for its fake court citations and fake newspaper articles. Bing reads financial statements incorrectly and displays a manipulative and obnoxious personality. And Google’s Bard is also prone to providing incorrect answers in an equally self-assured manner.
Through all this, we furiously debate whether Singularity will happen and algorithms will become our overlord.
The point we miss is that AI algorithms are already an integral part of our lives and they are full of pernicious biases. Especially gender bias.
What should we do about that?
