Doha, January 16 (QNA) - Chairman of the Artificial Intelligence Committee at the Ministry of Communications and Information Technology (MCIT) Hassan Jassim Al Sayed downplayed the fears that have arisen about the misuse of modern ChatGPT technology by students or researchers in solving their assignments and writing research papers as they depend on information already available to the public on world wide web.

In exclusive statements to Qatar News Agency (QNA), Al Sayed said that the Internet today is full of many valuable sources and data banks, which are essential for students and educational institutions, due to the important role it plays in this field, pointing out that ChatGPT technology is an important addition to the technological development in the field of artificial intelligence, which may affect daily lives and the business in the future.

He stressed the need to consider the negative impacts of the use of artificial intelligence, such as the possibility of biased decision-making and the impact on the labor market, calling on governments to take several steps to avoid misuse of artificial intelligence technologies, in addition to regulating the use of such technologies through legislation and policies that restrict their use for specific purposes or give licenses to companies to use it.

Al Sayed highlighted the need to put in place mechanisms to supervise and monitor the use of these technologies for illegal or immoral purposes, while providing educational and awareness programs to educate the public about the potential risks and benefits of these systems, and how to use them in a responsible manner.

He also added that the main axes of the national strategy for artificial intelligence are the promotion of the use of artificial intelligence applications in the public and private sectors, the development of public awareness programs for the optimal use of these applications, the preparation of regulatory legislation and guidelines related to the ethics of artificial intelligence to protect the rights of all parties and the provision of a legal environment for their use.

Al Sayed also noted that a higher committee that includes elite specialists from governmental and educational institutions and research institutes will supervise the follow-up of the implementation of this strategy.
