artificial intelligence programs like ChatGPT also have a “dark side” in the eyes of the European police, Europol, an entity that warns that criminal networks can abuse these types of tools for their own benefit.
The report ‘ChatGPT, the impact of broad language models in the application of the law’ aims to shed light on possible undesirable effects of tools aimed at processing, manipulating and generating texts and with access to a wide range of data.
Europol has identified several “concerns” regarding these programs whose ability to produce “highly realistic” texts could make them attractive when proposing tactics of phishing for mislead potential victims by impersonating companies or individuals.
The institution also fears the effects in terms of “disinformation” as it allows users generate texts with a very specific story and with little effortmaking “the model ideal for propaganda purposes”.
On the other hand, he has warned that the fact that ChatGPT is also capable of producing programming codes could lead to criminals.with little technical knowledgecan easily access “malicious” systems, details Europe Press.
ChatGPT can be used to obtain information without prior knowledge on a wide range of potential crime areas, ranging from home burglary to terrorism, cybercrime and child sexual abuse, it says.
Europol has emphasized that this report aims to raise awareness of the challenges of artificial intelligence, give rise to a new dialogue with companies and also help them get involved in the development of “secure and reliable” systems. In fact, the institution has made available to the security forces a larger study than the one it made public.

Despite the errors and shortcomings that still exist, the capacity that the program has already demonstrated, and the potential to improve in the long term, inspires not only admiration, but also fear.
The European Union (EU) is working on a bill to regulate artificial intelligence applications.
