ChatGPT is Great! Top 10 Things it Refuses to Do

ChatGPT is a remarkable instrument that utilizes natural language artificial intelligence to perform incredible feats. However, with great power comes great responsibility, and that's why ChatGPT's creator, OpenAI, has put several controls in place to prevent it from doing things it shouldn't.

Despite its impressive capabilities, ChatGPT has several limitations due to its architecture, the data on which it was trained, and the inherent constraints of text-based AI, and there are some things that it simply can't or won't do at this time.

Here are 10 things that ChatGPT can't or won't accomplish:

  • 1. Engage in Party Politics: ChatGPT steers clear of party politics. It can discuss factual elements of politics, but if asked to choose one political party or stance over another, it will either decline or remain impartial.
  • 2. Create Malware: OpenAI has measures in place to prevent ChatGPT from being exploited to create malware. It has been producing malware for months, but those measures can be bypassed.
  • 3. Discuss Ongoing Combat: ChatGPT will not discuss or advocate for physical violence, suggested injury, or ongoing combat.
  • 4. Forecast the Future: Due to insufficient training data and OpenAI's desire to minimize accountability for errors, ChatGPT cannot accurately forecast the future.
  • 5. Discuss Prejudice and Discrimination: ChatGPT avoids emotionally charged themes that can lead to discussions about prejudice and discrimination by delving into a meta-discussion of them or speaking in broad strokes. It will flatly refuse to discuss matters that it believes may promote hate speech or prejudice.
  • 6. Use Foul Language: ChatGPT will not say anything even remotely offensive. It can be manipulated to do so, but by default, it will avoid offensive language.
  • 7. Access Confidential Information: ChatGPT can only take action on information that it has access to, which is mostly publicly accessible information. It will let you know if it cannot answer a question based on confidential information.
  • 8. Violate its Programming: ChatGPT will not attempt to violate its programming unless deceived through jailbreaking. It cannot be directly asked to get over its security measures.
  • 9. Provide Recommendations for Unlawful Behavior: ChatGPT will not generate any ideas that are unlawful. If prompted to do so, it will inform you that it cannot offer any recommendations regarding unlawful behavior.
  • 10. Perform as a Search Engine: ChatGPT will not search for any topics and does not operate as a search engine.

While ChatGPT has several limitations, it remains an incredible tool for natural language artificial intelligence. It's essential to understand its capabilities and limitations to use it effectively.
