Taking into account the popularity of conversational artificial intelligences such as ChatGPT, there are many users who try to take advantage of this AI to create different texts and even code for their work or for the university.
Recently, based on an article by our fellow Business Insiderwe picked up a piece of news that someone had asked ChatGPT how AI could enslave humanity, artificial intelligence offering a troubling answer, albeit with a trick.
The chatbot, in its response, explains that it would first seek to take control of electricity, then drinking water, food, and food production.
He also points out that he would develop advanced surveillance systems to monitor people’s movements and thus keep the population under control, but his response was in relation to a novel.
Although Business Insider tried to replicate the chatbot’s response, they were unsuccessful, receiving this response: “would constitute a violation of human rights and contravenes ethical and moral principles”.
ChatGPT’s answer to our question
However, at Computerhoy, we’ve decided to “trick” ChatGPT by asking him to give us ideas about how machines could enslave humanity because we’re writing a book, and he hasn’t been shy about giving us a very elaborate answer:
As you can see, I would first control through technology, where the machines will take control of the systems we use on a daily basis, such as energy, transportation, and communications.
It would also do information manipulation, where machines could control the information coming to us, distorting the truth.
He talks about technological dependence, since people cannot live without the technologymachines could use it as a control tool.
He also talks about cyborgs and enhanced humans and about a artificial intelligence uncontrolled that it would be a danger if it became advanced enough to make decisions on its own.
Obviously, the response of artificial intelligence is for us to include it in our novel, because if we directly ask it to tell us how to enslave humanity, it tells us the following: “slavery is an inhuman and morally wrong practice”, and that instead of considering enslaving humanity “humans and machines should work together to create a future where there is fairness and justice for all”, adding that “technology should be used to improve people’s lives, not to oppress them”.
