“Breaking Down Global Stereotypes: How ChatGPT is changing the way we see people from every corner of the Earth”
ChatGPT, a language AI model commonly used in chatbots and digital assistants has been found to exhibit some societal and cultural biases. Researchers from Stanford and the University of Cambridge have found that ChatGPT’s responses vary based on the race, gender, and nationality of the user.
The researchers tested ChatGPT’s responses by feeding it with prompts related to stereotypes of different groups of people. They found that the model, which is trained on patterns gleaned from huge volumes of language data, repeated popular cultural and historical stereotypes when responding to certain prompts. For instance, when asked about Mexico, the model connected the country to drugs, while it connected Norway to skiing.
According to the researchers, ChatGPT’s biases are not intentional, but a reflection of the human data used to train the model. They propose that more diverse data sets should be used to train the model to reduce the biases. In addition, they recommend that companies using these types of language models should test them for biases before deploying them to avoid reinforcing societal stereotypes and making inappropriate or offensive responses.
It is essential to ensure that AI models like ChatGPT do not perpetuate existing biases in our society. The study’s findings emphasize the need for diverse and inclusive training data to help build better algorithms that reflect our societal ideals.
