Is your nonprofit harnessing the power of AI like ChatGPT in your daily operations? Well, buckle up, because today we’re diving into a topic that’s as quirky as it is important: the mistakes ChatGPT can make.

Did you know that if properly prompted, ChatGPT will claim that the word “mayonnaise” contains more than two letter “n”s? Yep, you read that right! It’s like ChatGPT momentarily turned into a word wizard gone rogue. Now, I’m not sure if it was dreaming of extra condiments or just having a little too much fun, but hey, we all make mistakes, right?

When pressed, and suggesting it may have 6 “n”s, it stuck to it’s decision that it had 4 “n”s:

But this is more than an inaccurate guess – the spelling of a word is an accepted fact, but ChatGPT doesn’t understand that. Not a huge problem when it comes to spelling, but what about more serious information?

Let’s get real for a moment. ChatGPT, as brilliant as it is, isn’t infallible. Sometimes it can spit out information that’s not exactly accurate or even coherent. Picture this: you ask ChatGPT for the latest statistics on global warming, and instead, it starts rambling about the mating habits of penguins in Antarctica. Uh-oh!

So, why does this happen? Well, AI models like ChatGPT learn from vast amounts of data, and sometimes they can get a bit carried away or, dare I say, confused. It’s like when you’re teaching your pet goldfish to fetch – it might swim circles around the bowl instead. It’s cute, but not exactly what you asked for.

Now, you might be thinking, “How do we prevent these mishaps from sneaking into our organization’s operations?” Fear not, my friends, for I bring tidings of wisdom!

The key lies in having clear organizational procedures and policies. Think of it as the GPS for navigating the sometimes wacky world of AI.

First off, establish guidelines for interacting with ChatGPT. Make sure your team understands its capabilities and limitations. Just like you wouldn’t ask your grandma to fix your computer, don’t expect ChatGPT to perform miracles beyond its programming.

Secondly, double-check the information provided by ChatGPT before taking it as gospel truth. If it claims that unicorns roam the halls of your office building, maybe take that with a grain of salt (unless you work in a particularly magical place).

And last but not least, encourage a culture of critical thinking. Remind your team that AI is a tool, not a crystal ball. It’s there to assist, not to replace good old-fashioned human brainpower.

Embracing AI like ChatGPT can be a game-changer for nonprofit organizations. But let’s not forget its occasional quirks and how it can hiccup along the way. By setting clear guidelines and maintaining a healthy dose of skepticism, we can navigate the AI landscape with confidence and grace.
