OpenAI puts ChatGPT on hold due to too cunning users
Two weeks after integration with the Bing browser, OpenAI had to suspend the ChatGPT plugin because it allowed users to bypass blocking of subscribers on various websites.
The company announced its decision officially, acknowledging the reality of the problem. Browse With Bing will be returned as soon as a solution is found.
"We have learned that the beta version of Browse ChatGPT can sometimes display content in a way we don't want, for example, if a user specifically requests the full text of a URL, it may inadvertently fulfil that request," OpenAI said in a statement.
In this way, users were able to access full versions of articles that their owners distribute for a paid subscription.
The company said it was disabling Browse until the problem was resolved because "we want to do the right thing for content owners."
Now, in a blog post announcing the launch of the beta version of the app, OpenAI notes that it has temporarily disabled the integration "as a precaution" and that it hopes to restore it in the near future.
According to Futurism, the problem is that the Browse ChatGPT beta was part of a subscription that costs users $20 a month, so losing it could seriously affect the decision of whether to continue paying OpenAI.
It also brings back the issue of AI companies training their models on other people's data without compensating content creators.
TechCrunch also suggests that the termination of integration with Bing actually means a loss of data for users. The fact is that before the integration, the chatbot was trained only on data until 2021, and Bing allowed ChatGPT to access real-time data.
Therefore, there is an assumption that ChatGPT will again be unaware of events that occurred after September 2021.
