Colorado Newsline: Ask a generative AI chatbot to describe what Gov. Jared Polis has accomplished for Colorado, and it might mention that he “worked to expand funding for early childhood education and kindergarten” and “pursued initiatives to lower the cost of prescription drugs,” as ChatGPT accurately reported recently, based on a prompt I entered.

The digital tool also stated that Polis “established a state office focused on fighting climate change and protecting the environment.” Hmm. I know of no such office.

The query demonstrates the extraordinary power, and potential pitfalls, of generative AI — the kind of artificial intelligence that can learn and create new content, such as the human-style words and images that sophisticated chatbots like ChatGPT can churn out.
