AI Can Destroy Your Career or Business


OpenAI’s ChatGPT and Google’s Bard have been covered in almost every media outlet. I’m taking a nontechnical approach rather than getting crazy over AI’s possible uses.

In reality, Elon Musk and Steve Wozniak, along with hundreds of other technologists, researchers, and CEOs, have been calling for AI labs to halt work on these AI systems for at least six months to analyze their hazards.

ChatGPT’s talents can turn somersaults into applause.

  • Talking to humans logically
  • Ad copy brainstorming
  • Creating a blog post or book from a user inquiry or idea
  • answering a query on how many pets died in natural disasters worldwide in the past seven years.
  • softening an angry email before sending
  • Redirecting calls and traffic to huge organizations and having the bot choose which department to connect customers to for problem-solving
  • Improving your marriage with six good listening habits

Why would AI technology raise “concerns”? For years, we’ve asked Google queries about our health, finances, and relationships and received helpful answers. Grandma’s house uses GPS for holidays. Siri locates the nearest Sonic.

How is ChatGPT different from other AI products?

Let me count the ways—especially those that most impact authors, speakers, consultants, and big business. It can ruin careers and enterprises.

AI Accuracy

ChapGPT does not reveal the origins of its answers, unlike Google, which provides a vast number of sources from which you can evaluate their accuracy and dependability. You may be reading Mayo Clinic’s 6 causes or remedies of pancreatitis or Uncle Billy Bob’s blog about his diagnosis.

ChatGPT scrapes unknown sources. My group of speaker friends argued the subject live online and got varied replies when they entered the identical query. All three entered the same inquiry and received and posted different answers.

AI Plagiarism and Copyright/Trademark Infringement

Imagine if ChapGPT offers two marketing teams the same ad campaign concepts generated by AI. Trishla Ostwal writes in Adweek that AI systems cannot yet identify trademarks and copyrights.

Authors and presenters may quote or use brand names without realising it because ChatGPT doesn’t disclose its sources. Copyright and trademark infringement claims are possible.

Expertise and style define authors. “Signature stories” define speakers. They frown on plagiarism.

AI Deceit

AI essay writing irks professors and public school teachers. After receiving three or four papers with comparable major ideas, people realise that. In a recent conversation with a college professor, he made a great point: Teachers and professors should evaluate students’ work based on creativity and analytical thinking, not memorization of historical or scientific facts.

The court recently declared that AI-generated graphics cannot be copyrighted or branded

Authors, presenters, and consultants who put their name on AI-generated papers and books (lightly “edited” by them) lose credibility. Books too! A book coach/consultant advertises employing AI to produce a book in minutes!

Personal integrity determines whether one claims AI-generated ideas and words as their own.

AI Deception

Can you envision a world with misinformation on every social media platform and a media that reports opinions as “facts”? What about AI altering political leaders’ comments in videos? Using AI to fake photos?

This technology isn’t new. Do you remember government leaders telling us they needed to “verify authenticity” before releasing Osama Bin Laden and ISIS footage to news outlets?

Imagine a world where we need an agency or board to certify the authenticity of every video, audio, or image that could harm us.

Productivity Issues

I think of the classroom when frequent users comment about “chatting” with ChapGPT, asking questions, adding data, and exploring the tool to find subtleties on their topic or problem. Students spend hours making cheat sheets and schemes for tests instead of learning the material, which would have been ideal.

Even for good reasons, mastering AI technologies takes time.

Company Credibility

You may be thinking, wow, this author appears caught in the “way past” machine, refusing useful technology that many say will change the world.

To clarify: I embrace technology to improve life. New AI tools can do enormous benefit and great harm. AI can serve good or evil. (Evildoers boast of sending misleading, damaging information into space.)

AI tools, like many others, are employed and claimed to produce results based on personal integrity and company reputation. The future will show our morality.
