‘ChatGPT going crazy’: OpenAI identifies issue causing issues for chatbot | Technology News

[ad_1]

Several ChatGPT users on Wednesday posted social media posts where OpenAI’s ChatGPT chatbot seems to have “lost the plot.” In the screenshots, captures and chats, ChatGPT can be seen replying to prompts with what looks like gibberish, outputting entire paragraphs in a mix of multiple languages or just English language words that make no sense when put together.

While it seems like “ChatGPT has gone off the rails,” it would be inaccurate to anthropomorphise the chatbot and compare it to a human being. ChatGPT does not “think” in the same way that humans do. It is most likely that a technical issue is causing the issues.

OpenAI in its status page for ChatGPT acknowledged reports from the users. “We are investigating reports of unexpected responses from ChatGPT. The issue has been identified and is being remediated now. We’re continuing to monitor the situation,” reads the status page.

Different users saw the chatbot malfunction in different ways. u/JUBAnonymous posted on the ChatGPT subreddit, writing how they asked the chatbot “If the world had been created 5 seconds ago, how could we realize it?,” it replied with a long and rambling paragraph that also veered of into other languages, including words from Old Spanish and Latin, both of which are dead languages.

User u/triangalicious thankfully got responses in English but the sentences made no sense. “Drape all affairs and pamphlet in a strip of prudence, know, and keen ginning, which reverberates with impel. Rattling on and dialing with your social mass, parsing rebounds, and schisms, is a great envoi for the enrooting and fluidity of your custom. Let’s nurture an emboldening, competent, and noetic side. Feel free to pick, form, or imbricate these points as per your mission’s tread. If there are any main three crafty, zoom, or closer titrations required, glad to unpipe. Happy to tine!,” wrote the chatbot in a reply to the user. u/triangalicious did not specify what prompt they used.

Indianexpress.com independently tried to use some of the prompts that these users reported but was not able to independently replicate the results. It is not immediately clear whether this was because the issue has been rectified or because it only affected a small number of users.
