The Center for AI and Digital Policy (CAIDP), a tech ethics group, has asked the Federal Trade Commission to investigate OpenAI for violating consumer protection rules. CAIDP claims that OpenAI’s AI text generation tools have been “biased, deceptive, and a risk to public safety.”
CAIDP’s complaint raises concerns about potential threats from OpenAI’s GPT-4 generative text model, which was announced in mid-March. It warns of the potential for GPT-4 to produce malicious code and highly tailored propaganda and the risk that biased training data could result in baked-in stereotypes or unfair race and gender preferences in hiring.
The complaint also mentions significant privacy failures with OpenAI’s product interface, such as a recent bug that exposed OpenAI ChatGPT histories and possibly payment details of ChatGPT plus subscribers.
CAIDP seeks to hold OpenAI accountable for violating Section 5 of the FTC Act, which prohibits unfair and deceptive trade practices. The complaint claims that OpenAI knowingly released GPT-4 to the public for commercial use despite the risks, including potential bias and harmful behavior.
