Ethics and GPT

Monday 29 May 2023


By now, I’m sure all of us have used some Generative AI tool (ChatGPT, Dall-e, Midjourney, ...) even more, I’m sure many of us use them almost every day. But the fact of using these tools sometimes generates ethical conflicts that have to do with: data validation, intellectual property, ecological footprint, data sources used to train,...
The aim of this article is to make them reflect on these tools and so first of all we will take a look at the press to see that often these ethical conflicts are news, let’s see some recent news:
Therefore, it seems clear that today these Generative tools are in no man’s land, that is, we find that there is a legal vacuum behind the wheel of AI. In the next article, there is an exploration of all this void that we currently find in this world: AI and copyright,
For the moment and until there is any specific legislation we should focus on the "goodwill" of the people. In this line the Generalitat of Catalonia on its website has put a Catalan Charter for digital rights and responsibilities has a point that makes explicit reference to "Ethics in the field of AI and algorithmic governance in the public and private sector "
It sets out a series of recommendations aimed at highlighting rights that are not yet guaranteed by law.
But if the Generalitat, through its letter, intends to influence the developers of AI tools, the Observatory of Ethics in Artificial Intelligence (OEIAC)  wants to go to the other extreme, wants to make users reflect to make them aware of possible ethical conflicts that may end up generating, and that is why he has published on his website a diagram in which the ethics of GPT tools
In conclusion, everything seems to indicate that specific legislation will eventually exist since the creator of ChatGPT himself asks for it in the US Congress. In the meantime, the only thing we can do is to make responsible use of these tools and be aware of the possible ethical conflicts that exist in your environment.
