Danish Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen gave a speech in Parliament on Wednesday, the entire first part of which was written by the artificial intelligence tool ChatGPT, to highlight the revolutionary but also risky aspect of the technology.
For the head of the Danish government, who was making a political assessment speech at the end of the parliamentary session, the conversational robot developed by the company OpenAI is capable of deceiving.
“What I just read is not mine. Or of any other human being”, suddenly explained to the deputies Ms. Frederiksen after her introduction.
“While he hasn’t always hit the nail on the head, both in the details of the government’s work program and the punctuation…what (ChatGPT) is capable of is both fascinating and terrifying,” pointed out the leader.
ChatGPT is one of the latest examples of the impressive capabilities of AI, which also raises a number of concerns about the abuses that the technology allows, particularly in terms of misinformation or the massive replacement of human employees.
The subject is on the menu of a high-level meeting on trade between the United States and the European Union this Wednesday in Luleå, Sweden.
A group of business leaders and experts, including Sam Altman, the creator of ChatGPT, warned on Tuesday of the “extinction” threats to humanity posed by the rise of the technology.
In the part of the Danish speech compiled by ChatGPT, were the following sentences: “It has been an honor and a challenge to lead an enlarged government during the last parliamentary year”.
“We have worked hard to cooperate across parties and ensure a strong and sustainable future in Denmark.”
Or: “We have taken measures to fight climate change and ensure a fairer and more inclusive society where all citizens have equal opportunities”.
And again: “We have also worked to strengthen our health and social system, so that all citizens can get the help they need”.
“Although we have encountered challenges and opposition along the way, I am proud of what we have achieved together over the past parliamentary year.”
The “pens” usually responsible for writing the speeches of the Prime Minister did not comment on the quality of this production.
