ChatGPT, like other generative AI technology, relies on what it’s “fed” when “spitting out” responses or data. For example, if ChatGPT briefs a case for a law student, this is because someone inputs all the relevant information into ChatGPT at an earlier time. If someone asks ChatGPT to brief that same case and another case in one response; the software would take the one case’s information from the place it was provided, and combines it with the information found in the other place where the second case was found. All in all, ChatGPT is limited in response to what it has been “told” at an earlier time. Think something like a Parrot. Parrots are well known as a species of bird that can repeat the sounds and words that someone says in their vicinity.
On September 11th, 2023, a cyberattack flooded the front pages of publications around the world- MGM Resorts and Caesars Entertainment were the victims of a costly incident. Patrons looking to enter their hotel rooms, go for another spin on the slot machines, or use casino rewards, were appalled at the persistent error messages that kept disrupting them from doing so. The breach had lasted over a week without a concise and strong end to the damage, leaving travelers vulnerable. It is customary that companies seek to find the culprit of the breach, deplete its ability to do more damage, and inform patrons of their safety being returned, and this proactiveness was missing.
