Editor’s Word: In an article titled “What to think about AI and chatbots?”, psychologist Dr. Le Nguyen Phuong raised the issue: The most urgent race that perhaps we all need to do is probably the race to find look for the uniqueness of “humanity” or “human characteristics” to identify the “human role” and go one step further, determine how “human education” others “lead the machine”. Below, VietNamNet would like to introduce the content of the article.
It is possible that for programmers in the field of AI, there have long been analyzes and assessments of the value and impact of a similar tool on human mental activity in particular and the whole world. its influence on human life in general.
However, for a long time, “the masses” could only view science fiction stories as works, “Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?” by Philip K. Dick,”Neuromancer“by William Gibson,”The Diamond Age” by Neal Stephenson,”Ender’s Game” by Orson Scott Card; or movies “Blade Runner“based on the work of the aforementioned Philip K. Dick, the series”The Terminator,” “Ex Machina,” “I, Robot“good”Her” and hypothesizes about the consequences/results when AI surpasses human intelligence, the relationship between man and machine, as well as related problems when man is replacing God “… creating man in His image… made them in His image.” (Genesis 1:27).
With the emergence of OpenAI in general and ChatGPT In particular, at the end of last year, we were “thrown” by Santa Claus with a toy that for a long time these “kids” who love technical means still look at them through the window and wish for a toy. ownership date. But at the same time, or indeed, we are being “thrown” into a new reality, neither virtual reality nor new normality, a reality where A set of technologies that will change the way we see and interact with our own world and the way we create immersive experiences in the new world.
4 years ago, the whole society seemed to be on the rise with the so-called 4.0 that there were educational seminars that have nothing to do with science and technology and also tried to include the word “in the 4.0 era” to make it easier to apply. sponsor. When the old concept of 4.0 for many people was just using Powerpoint with a few animations to present a lecture, now 4.0 has come knocking on doors and squatting on computers from teachers to students. And so we speak of the end of the educational method from the chapter where the teacher “deposits” knowledge into the student’s “account”, says Paulo Freire, and passively accepts the knowledge by chance. That generates profits depending on the intelligence of each student.
What can students actually use AI tools for free, at least for now? Overall, ChatGPT for example can serve as a valuable tool for students who want to improve their understanding of different subjects, improve their writing skills and prepare for exams. It can assist with homework completion by providing information, explanations and examples, improving learning by helping students learn by answering questions, providing summaries and explain difficult concepts; improve the presentation of ideas by suggesting ideas, improving grammar and suggesting alternative expressions; prepare exams by helping students practice answering questions in a simulated test environment; and perhaps lastly most importantly, supporting research by providing information, suggestions for further reading, and abstracts of research publications.
Faced with that possibility, surely teachers or lecturers no longer have the luxury of lulling students to sleep with lectures and exams from decades ago. What comes to mind right away is that teaching methods in schools need to change and evolve to focus more on critical thinking, problem solving, and creativity, as these skills cannot be copied. by machines – the contents and teaching methods that students and students should have been taught… from the last century in order to keep pace with the world. Instead of relying solely on memorization and memorization, teachers should encourage students to analyze and apply information in meaningful ways. And of course, students also need to be taught how to use technology effectively, including AI tools like ChatGPT, to support their learning. By equipping students with these skills, they will be better prepared to succeed in a world increasingly driven by technology.
Let’s hope that AI tools like ChatGPT are also limited by the program and data they’ve been trained on, and they can’t always provide culturally sensitive or accurate information. If God is not perfect, of course his creation is also imperfect. AI systems, including language models like ChatGPT, can make mistakes and exhibit certain biases due to the limitations of their training data and algorithms.
Human biases and biases when fed to a machine can manifest in a variety of ways. They can be halo or angelic effects, where the AI system assigns a positive attribute to an entity based on a positive trait; the horn effect, where the AI system assigns a negative attribute to an entity based on a negative trait; contrast effect, where the perception of an AI system of a phenomenon is influenced by the contrasting presence of other stimuli. Human thinking errors including the limitation of cognitive frameworks (schemata) may also inadvertently intrude on solutions and solutions during the process of setting up or using.
These mindset mistakes can lead to inaccurate or unfair results, especially in areas like finance, criminal justice, and recruitment, where AI systems are increasingly being used. to make important decisions. It is important to be aware of these errors and regularly evaluate and test AI systems to minimize their harm. Human oversight and decision-making is still needed to ensure that AI-generated results are accurate, fair, and ethical. And this is… maybe the AI will learn and fix it very quickly because they don’t try to cling to an ideology, belief, mood, relationship, etc. to strengthen their ego or see these things. as their identity.
The most urgent race that perhaps all of us need to do is probably the race to find the uniqueness of “humanity” or “human characteristics” from which to identify “human roles” and To take it a step further, determine how to “educate” others “to lead the machine”.
Here I dare to put forward only one hypothesis. While AI tools like ChatGPT can certainly provide useful answers and solutions that are both logical and based on a huge amount of worldwide data that no individual can own for a few days. After decades of schooling, they still lack the human qualities of emotional intelligence, empathy, wholeness of presence, the ability to make ethical decisions. These competencies are essential to success in both personal and professional lives, and they cannot be fully developed through technology alone.
With those skills or rather qualities, teachers or human instructors can bring a unique perspective, diverse experience, and emotional intelligence to the classroom. As a result, the role of teachers in the age of AI will grow but not disappear. Teachers can provide guidance and mentoring, facilitate discussion and collaborative learning, and help students develop the capacity for deep human contemplation and experience to be able to Addressing complex ethical and ethical questions is often outside the scope of AI.
