As if he was a grumpy teenager, it seems that the AI chatbot has begun to cause problems for users • Among the complaints raised online, it was claimed that the answers that the AI-based system gives are partial and unsatisfactory • One hypothesis - the change was made intentionally • OpenAI denied


OpenAI, the developer of ChatGPT, has said in recent days that it is investigating claims that the system has become "lazy." The claims come after many users complained on forums about inadequate answers the system provided them.

In recent days, more and more users of the latest version of ChatGPT - built on OpenAI's GPT-4 model - have complained that the chatbot refuses to do what people ask, or that it does not seem interested in answering their queries.





In one example, users claimed that after asking the chat for a piece of code, it gives very partial information and instructs them to fill in the rest. Some users even went so far as to complain that GPT did this in a particularly nervous way and even told people that they were fully capable of doing the work themselves.

In many Reddit threads and even posts on OpenAI developer forums, users complained that the system had become less useful, with various speculations suggesting that the change was deliberately made by OpenAI in order to make ChatGPT more efficient by providing shorter and faster answers.

It should be noted that artificial intelligence systems such as ChatGPT are prohibitively expensive for the companies that manage them, so providing detailed answers to complicated questions from users may require significant processing power and computing time from the system.

The company claims: "No change has been made"

At the same time, the creators of ChatGPT said they were aware of complaints about the system, but claimed that in fact no changes were made to the model that explain why it started behaving differently. "We've heard all the feedback about GPT4 getting lazy," OpenAI said in a post on social network X.

"We haven't updated the system since November 11 and that's definitely not intentional. Model behavior can be unpredictable, and we are reviewing the case," the statement read. It should be noted that OpenAI gave no indication of whether it was convinced by the complaints.

The complaints about the popular chatbot come shortly after the uproar at its parent company, OpenAI, last month. The company's board of directors abruptly announced the dismissal of CEO and founder Sam Altman, claiming that he had "withheld information" and that "the board no longer has confidence in his ability to continue leading OpenAI."

Shortly thereafter, following the resignation of senior executives and threats by employees to follow Altman's lead, a frantic process began to reinstate him to his position at the company. After it seemed that Altman would move to major investor Microsoft, the founder eventually returned to OpenAI and Microsoft was appointed to the board of directors.
