ChatGPT may be a bigger cybersecurity risk than an actual benefit

ChatGPT made a splash with its user-friendly interface and believable AI-generated responses. With a single prompt, ChatGPT provided detailed answers that other AI assistants had not achieved. Powered by a massive dataset that ChatGPT had been trained on, the breadth and variety of topics it could address quickly amazed the tech industry and the public.

However the technology sophistication raises inevitable question: what are the drawbacks of ChatGPT and similar technologies? With capabilities to generate a multitude of realistic responses, ChatGPT could be used to create a host of responses capable of tricking an unassuming reader into thinking a real human is behind the content.

ChatGPT takes a complex prompt and generates a full response, potentially spanning multiple paragraphs. It remembers the prior conversation and builds on it when asked further questions, providing more detailed responses.

An example is shown below: ChatGPT lists instructions to bake a chocolate cake.
