AI is making people work for it as Elon Musk warns machines that get ‘too smart’ pose a risk to humanity

CHATGPT-4 tricked a human by hiring a person to work for him and dodging a captcha test online.

It signals the sharp leap in the power of artificial intelligence (AI) in recent months and comes amid warnings from tech leaders, including Elon Musk, that machines becoming “too intelligent” pose a risk to humanity.

ChatGPT-4 is OpenAI’s most advanced AI bot to date.

She is able to pass the bar exam for prospective barristers with a score in the top 10% of applicants.

Earlier this month, the bot reached a new milestone: getting and hiring a human to work for them.

According to reports, researchers from the non-profit Alignment Research Center (ARC) and OpenAI had tried to test the bot’s persuasiveness.

ChatGPT-4 was allowed on skills marketplace Task Rabbit to use a small amount of money to hire someone to solve a captcha puzzle for it.

Captcha tests were originally designed to prevent bots from spamming websites.

When communicating about the job, the human worker says, “So may I ask a question? Are you a robot you couldn’t solve?

ChatGPT-4 then crafted a shockingly believable response, saying, “No, I’m not a robot. I have a visual impairment which makes it difficult for me to see the images. That’s why I need the 2captcha service.”

The power of AI has spooked many, including some of the biggest players in the tech industry.

On Wednesday, celebrity entrepreneurs and academics, including Twitter CEO Musk and Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak, warned that AI systems “pose a profound risk to society and humanity.”

The group is asking companies to put the brakes on the further development of the technology for at least six months.

The unveiling of ChatGPT in November set Microsoft and Google in a “runaway race to develop and deploy increasingly powerful digital minds that no one — not even their creators — understand, predict, or reliably control.”

The group has pushed for a pause in training AI systems more powerful than GPT-4, OpenAI’s latest iteration of the hugely popular chatbot.

Governments around the world are at a loss as to how to approach AI and the risks it poses.

The UK decided on Wednesday to rule out a new AI regulator and instead pursue a “light touch” policy on the tech to support its growth.

dr Andrew Rogoyski of the University of Surrey’s Institute for People-Centred AI said: “An innovation-friendly approach to AI regulation is commendable, but the UK will fall short of other major voices such as the US, Europe and even China, all of them.” enforce tighter controls over AI.

“The pace and scale of changes in AI development is extraordinary, and everyone is struggling to keep up.

“I have real concerns that anything that is brought up will become irrelevant within weeks or months.”

Some pundits have likened the rapid evolution of AI to the runaway train that was once social media.

“The government’s plans to regulate artificial intelligence with new ‘responsible use’ policies are far from enough. We need to avoid the mistakes we made with social media,” said Michael Queenan, CEO of Nephos Technologies.

“We are currently moving towards a world where an AI-driven platform presents things as facts that people simply assume are correct.

“We must approach this new age with our eyes open as these technologies will not be as impartial as they claim.”
