Will GPT chat change our world?

When a new invention reaches the public en masse, it causes excitement, but also fear. The same is true of the ChatGPT tool from OpenAI. We decided to talk about this important moment for the development and popularization of artificial intelligence with our expert Professor Aleksandra Przegalinska.

What makes the emergence of ChatGPT so earthshaking? First of all, its accessibility. This is the first time that artificial intelligence is so easily accessible to regular users, which offers a huge field of possibilities, but also poses dangers. In an interview the professor stressed that one has to be very careful when using this tool: the tool has very broad knowledge in some areas, but it can also very often give misleading answers. 

Undoubtedly, the existing “boom” in the use of artificial intelligence will greatly accelerate the development and number of its applications. It also requires rapid adaptation of the law, especially in the area of intellectual property and copyright. Artificial intelligence will also revolutionize the Polish market, by automating work and opening up new opportunities. We already know many examples of successful AI-based startups: Map of Polish AI startups.

Listen to the discussion on this technology on our podcast channel (available in Polish on Spotify, Apple Podcasts, Google Podcast, and other podcast platforms).
