ChatGPT is in trouble. OpenAI is getting sued in the US for illegally using content from the internet to train their LLM or large language models. It got called out for unauthorised data mining to augment its information database.
OpenAI’s ChatGPT appears to be gradually revealing its drawbacks — cementing the belief its intelligence remains inferior to that of humans. It proved the point ironically for AI advocate, Japan’s Digital Transformation Minister Kono Taro.
Data security did not seem to worry any tech players in China — not even when ChatGPT is controversial for its data mining. In fact, Google’s Bard’s (chatbot) is now capable of writing software codes, which will greatly impact CNC programming in metalworking.
Ever since OpenAI got accessible, it became a staple for many professionals to find solutions if not alternatives to improve their work. As at 30 March 2023, ChatGPT reportedly registered over 100 million users, including that from metalworking industry.
G-code is the most commonly used programming language, allowing programmers to control the various movements and functions of CNC tools. However, with concerns over data security and the potential for data mining, caution should be exercised when accessing tools like ChatGPT for improving coding.
