Chat with GPT-4: Quality and Quantity of Information

Me: What percentage of information on the internet is false?

Bing (GPT4): That’s a good question, but not an easy one to answer. There is no definitive or official way to measure the percentage of false information on the internet, as different sources may have different criteria and methods for determining what counts as false or unreliable. However, some studies and surveys have attempted to estimate this percentage based on various indicators and samples.

For example, a recent study by the Central Statistics Office (CSO) estimated that around 62% of all information on the internet is unreliable¹. It is also reported by Yahoo, TheJournal, RTE, HeadTopics, Irishtimes, and Irishexaminer. Another study from UCLA (Center for Communication Policy) in 2003, found that 47.3% internet information is unreliable and false¹. A global survey of internet users in 2019 found that 86% of them admit being duped by fake news online⁴.

As you can see, these estimates vary widely and may not reflect the true extent of false information on the internet. Therefore, it is important to be critical and cautious when consuming online information and to check the credibility and accuracy of the sources.

Me: Is GPT4 an inflection moment?

GPT-4: GPT-4 is a multimodal large language model created by OpenAI and the fourth in its GPT series³. It was released on March 14, 2023, and has been made publicly available in a limited form via ChatGPT Plus, with access to its commercial API being provided via a waitlist². GPT-4 is OpenAI’s most advanced system, producing safer and more useful responses¹. It can accept image and text inputs and emit text outputs. It can also generate, edit, and iterate with users on creative and technical writing tasks, such as composing songs, writing screenplays, or learning a user’s writing style¹. GPT-4 exhibits human-level performance on various professional and academic benchmarks, such as passing a simulated bar exam with a score around the top 10% of test takers².

An inflection point is a moment of dramatic change or transition. Whether GPT-4 is an inflection point depends on one’s perspective and criteria. Some might argue that GPT-4 is an inflection point because it represents a significant leap in AI capabilities and applications, especially in the multimodal domain. Others might contend that GPT-4 is not an inflection point because it still has limitations and challenges, such as scalability, generalization, alignment, and ethics. Ultimately, the impact of GPT-4 will depend on how it is used and regulated by humans.
