The British Minister for Science and Technology, Michelle Donelan, considers the future use of text robots such as ChatGPT in government work to be possible.
»Of course we need regulation, we need safeguards.
But we should never be afraid of these technologies,' Donelan told the Telegraph over the weekend while visiting a security firm in Melksham, England.
"We need to think about what the use of ChatGPT can be - just like any other organization would."
ChatGPT is an application that uses artificial intelligence to create extensive responses to text input.
The text robot can, among other things, answer questions in different languages, summarize and evaluate texts, write poems or computer programs.

According to the "Telegraph", several areas of public administration have recently sent inquiries to the Ministry of Technology to clarify whether artificial intelligence tools such as ChatGPT can be used for certain tasks - such as the formulation of e-mails, letters or tasks that arise when formulating legal texts.
Experts see great potential in text robots, but also dangers.
For example, the scientist Michael Osborne from the University of Oxford, who has been working on the development of artificial intelligence for years, recently warned that ChatGPT and other voice robots could “become a turbocharger for the spread of misinformation and propaganda”.
A far-reaching regulation of the programs is overdue.
Besides ChatGPT, there are other voice robots
ChatGPT is a chatbot based on artificial intelligence.
The software was developed by the manufacturer OpenAI.
According to this, the program should be able to conduct different conversations with the user, which are based on human dialogues.
This makes it possible for ChatGPT to ask explicit questions and, for example, to admit errors.
In addition to ChatGPT, there are numerous other programs based on artificial intelligence.
Applications such as Kuki, YouChat or Replica have different functions.
