The Center for Artificial Intelligence and Digital Policy (CAIDP) has filed a complaint with the US Federal Trade Commission (FTC) in an effort to prevent the release of powerful AI systems to consumers.
The complaint relates to OpenAI’s recently released flagship language model, GPT-4, which CAIDP described as “biased, misleading, and a risk to privacy and public safety” in its March 30 complaint.
CAIDP, a non-profit independent research organization, argued that the commercial release of GPT-4 violates Section 5 of the FTC Act, which prohibits “unfair or deceptive acts or practices in commerce.”
To support their case, the AI ethics organization pointed to the contents of the GPT-4 index card, which states:
“We found that the model has the potential to reinforce and reproduce specific prejudices and worldviews, including harmful stereotypes and demeaning associations for some marginalized groups.”
The same document states, “AI systems will have a greater capacity to amplify and enhance or correct entire ideologies, worldviews, truths and falsities, leaving future challenge, reflection and reform.”
CAIDP said that OpenAI released GPT-4 to the public for commercial use with full knowledge of these risks and that no independent review of GPT-4 had been done prior to release.
As a result, CAIDP wants the FTC to investigate the products of OpenAI and other operators of powerful AI systems:
“It’s Time for the FTC to Act […] CAIDP urges the FTC to launch an investigation into OpenAI, mandate further commercial releases of GPT-4, and ensure the necessary safeguards are in place to protect consumers, businesses, and the commercial marketplace.
While ChatGPT-3 was released in November, the latest version GPT-4 is said to be ten times more intelligent. Upon its release on March 14, a study found that the GPT-4 was able to pass the toughest US high school and law exams within the top 90th percentile.
Among other things, it can also detect smart contract vulnerabilities on Ethereum.
This morning I was hacking the new ChatGPT API and found something very interesting: there are over 80 secret plugins that can be revealed by removing a specific parameter from the API call.

The complaint comes as Elon Musk, Apple’s Steve Wozniak and a host of AI experts have signed a petition to “pause” the development of AI systems more powerful than GPT-4.

CAIDP President Mark Rotenberg was among the other 2,600 signatories to the petition, which was filed March 22 by the Future of Life Institute.

The authors argued that “advanced AI could mean profound changes in the history of life on Earth,” for better or for worse.
The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) has also called on states to implement the UN’s “Recommendation on the Ethics of AI” framework.

In other news, a former Google AI researcher recently claimed that Google’s AI chatbot, “Bard,” was trained using answers from ChatGPT.
While the researcher resigned over the incident, Google officials have denied their former colleague’s allegations.
