This is your AI on internet

🤖 A lot of ink has been devoted to understanding how the internet has impacted human intelligence. Now it looks like the same network is destroying artificial intelligence as well.

That’s the word from Stanford, where researchers noticed a disturbing trend: ChatGPT’s reliability has been tanking.

“We find that the performance and behavior of both GPT-3.5 and GPT-4 can vary greatly over time. For example, GPT-4 (March 2023) was very good at identifying prime numbers (accuracy 97.6%) but GPT-4 (June 2023) was very poor on these same questions (accuracy 2.4%).”

  • In better news, GPT-4 has better jailbreaking detection capabilities than v3.5.
  • But the downward trend is worrying, and researchers are working on improvements.
