I am a little weary of the speed of which AI has progressed. When it comes to considerations like have been brought to us in this post. That being said, I think there will be legal issues as these technologies continue down the path that they are, at the speed that they are. One of the article’s topics that particularly concerned me involved nudity and a lack of filtering out of such materials. Though these images are not considered “real”, I think these materials can be harmful, especially to younger audiences, and can even victimize young audiences. To me, this is dangerous and could present a risk of being child pornography.
Aside from the aforementioned risks, I can see that ChatGPT may cause some concern in my practice as an attorney one day. There are some considerations that we may need to consider and even updates to our rules of professional responsibility as these technologies continue to progress. I wonder how filling out legal documents would work using ChatGPT or something similar. Would this open attorneys up to more scrutiny? Would there be more ineffective assistance of counsel arguments? Would the responsibilities or burdens be different or shifted? I think these are all things that need to be considered before implementing programs such as ChatGPT or those similar in this world.
I think as this continues to progress, companies and employees really need to take these things into account and this can be hard when people are unaware of these technologies and their processes. I look forward to seeing what comes from these developments.
