OpenAI Reveals Potential Risks Of GPT-4V

OpenAI released a paper outlining potential risks associated with the use of GPT-4V, which include:

  • Privacy risks from identifying people in images or determining their location, potentially impacting companies’ data practices and compliance. The paper notes that GPT-4V has some ability to identify public figures and geolocate images.
  • Potential biases during image analysis and interpretation could negatively impact different demographic groups.
  • Safety risks from providing inaccurate or unreliable medical advice, specific directions for dangerous tasks, or hateful/violent content.
  • Cybersecurity vulnerabilities such as solving CAPTCHAs or multimodal jailbreaks.

Risks posed by the model have resulted in limitations, such as its refusal to offer analysis of images with people.
