A step away from the announcement of the 2023 Nobel Prizes, ChatGpt is not even a little unbalanced with the predictions on the possible winners: "I cannot predict the future, including the winners of the 2023 Nobel Prizes or any other year", the chatbot replied to the researcher of the American Indiana University in Bloomington, Santo Fortunato, as stated on the website of the journal Nature.
ChatGpt, of the OpenAI company, was not able to answer satisfactorily even when the researcher asked him what research would deserve this recognition, taking into consideration only those made by scientists still alive who have not already been awarded: the system based on Artificial Intelligence has identified important studies, such as the one that led to the Crispr technique, but in most cases it has chosen researchers who have already received a Nobel Prize or already deceased, thus ignoring the instructions.
According to some experts quoted by the magazine, when it comes to deciding who will win the Nobel Prize, nothing can compete with human judgment. Others, however, believe that ChatGpt and similar chatbots could pave the way for new types of rewards based on less biased analysis and driven by Artificial Intelligence, rather than the inevitably subjective points of view of human beings. Such awards could help highlight research that has changed the world of science in ways that are currently not recognized. But tools like ChatGpt could also perpetuate the prejudices that previously surrounded the Nobel. Since the awards were introduced more than a century ago, only 60 women have won. If chatbots are trained on data about past winners, they may be more likely to choose men than women as potential winners. also in the future.
