As innovation experts we strive to innovate our own processes, recently we shared our advances in ‘big data’ analyses in our blog and here we begin to delve into the possibility of using Artificial intelligence as an open innovation tool. We previously explored the ‘The Future of Artificial Intelligence’ using our insights, but this time we put it to the test…

The below was written by ChatGPT (the open-source AI model from OpenAI):

Prompt: How can ChatGPT be used as an innovation tool?

ChatGPT can be used as an innovation tool in several ways. First, as an AI model, it can be used to generate human-like text based on a given prompt. This can be useful in a variety of applications, such as generating product descriptions, creating customer service scripts, or even developing marketing content. By providing companies with a tool that can help them generate high-quality text quickly and easily, ChatGPT can save time and resources that can then be redirected toward other areas of innovation.

Second, because ChatGPT is open source, it allows a wider community of researchers and developers to contribute to its development, which can lead to faster progress and more innovative solutions. This is because open innovation, which is the idea of using external ideas in addition to internal ones, has been shown to promote collaboration and facilitate the sharing of knowledge and expertise.

Finally, ChatGPT can be used as a tool for experimentation and exploration. Because the model is freely available, companies can use it to test out new ideas and concepts without having to invest in expensive proprietary technology. This can provide a low-risk environment for companies to try out new approaches and see what works, which can ultimately lead to more innovation and progress in the field of AI.

Prompt: How might ChatGPT hinder innovation?

One potential way in which ChatGPT could hinder innovation is if it becomes too widely adopted and used without proper oversight and regulation. Because ChatGPT is an AI model, it is capable of generating text that is highly convincing and human-like. If this technology were to be used indiscriminately, there is a risk that it could be used to spread false or misleading information, which could have negative consequences for society as a whole.

Additionally, if ChatGPT becomes too prevalent, it could potentially lead to a situation where companies become reliant on the model and stop investing in their own in-house research and development efforts. This could lead to a stagnation of innovation and a lack of progress in the field of AI.

Furthermore, because ChatGPT is open source, there is the potential for malicious actors to modify the model for nefarious purposes. If this were to happen, it could have serious consequences for the security and integrity of the technology.

Overall, while ChatGPT has the potential to be a powerful tool for innovation, it is important for stakeholders to carefully consider the potential risks and drawbacks of the technology and to implement appropriate safeguards to mitigate those risks.

yet2 conclusions:

Although the AI’s ability to form a coherent argument is impressive it is lacking comparative and critical understanding. It is also aware of its shortcomings in terms of misleading and false information. A key requirement of technology scouting and open innovation is the ability to perform due diligence, which for now still requires the human touch. yet2 is not ruling out AI for the future, but the technology requires further development of its critical and comparative capability. yet2 prides itself on its personal and iterative approach backed by our experienced team of experts, our comparative value propositions, and our ability to understand your business needs.
