It’s the hot new topic on everyone’s lips - ChatGPT! We’ve already explored exactly what it is, but did you know that there’s evidence that job ads that Chat GPT writes are up to twice more biased? A recent study showed that the ChatGPT AI is particularly biased against neurodivergent people, people with physical disabilities and people from disadvantaged ethnic groups.

This is a huge blow for Chat GPT creators OpenAI, who hoped to develop an AI so complex that artificial general intelligence benefited all of humanity. And here at Optimal HQ, it got us wondering, what are the other disadvantages of ChatGPT?

Here’s a few we figured out.

Reliance on pure AI: Overreliance on AI for information and decision-making can lead to decreased development of staff members' critical thinking and problem-solving skills. How do you trust it?

Bias and misinformation: AI models like ChatGPT are trained on large amounts of out-of-date data and can perpetuate historical and social biases and inaccuracies represented in the training data.

Lack of emotional intelligence: AI systems like ChatGPT lack emotional intelligence and can struggle to understand the emotional context of a conversation, leading to misunderstandings and unsuitable responses.

Job displacement: The increasing use of AI systems like ChatGPT could lead to job displacement in fields such as customer service, content creation, and others.

Lack of common sense: ChatGPT is trained on text data but does not have a deep understanding of the world as a human does. This can result in responses that lack common sense or make incorrect assumptions.

Lack of context: ChatGPT generates responses based on the input it receives, but it does not fully understand the context in which the input was given. This can result in inappropriate, incorrect or nonsensical responses.

Limited ability to handle rare or out-of-vocabulary words: ChatGPT may struggle with rare or out-of-vocabulary words that it was not trained on, leading to inaccurate or irrelevant responses, especially in the nuisance context of role types, white-collar and blue-collar hiring. 

Difficulty in handling multi-turn conversations: ChatGPT has difficulty maintaining context and coherence in multi-turn conversations, leading to disjointed or unrelated responses.

Limited ability to handle ambiguity: ChatGPT may struggle with ambiguity and multiple interpretations, leading to confusion and errors.

Dependence on large amounts of training data: The performance of ChatGPT is dependent on the amount and quality of text data it was trained on. This means that models trained on smaller datasets may produce lower-quality results.

Cost: The cost of training and deploying ChatGPT models can be high, as it requires significant computational resources and data storage.

Lack of transparency: The internal workings of ChatGPT models can be difficult to understand and interpret, limiting their transparency and accountability. This can be a concern as organisations need to ensure that the model operates fairly and ethically.


In conclusion, generalised AIs are unsuitable for the job ad landscape. AI technology must be more refined and specific, trained with hundreds of hours of specific job ad knowledge. That’s where we come in! Get-Optimal (IT Team and Security approved) globally proven product works fundamentally differently in ambition, customer types, data sources and execution. We also work in a heavily controlled and secure environment and are hosted on Microsoft Azure Cognitive Services. We are a member of ‘AI for Good’ and use many techniques, including Reinforcement Learning from Human Feedback (RLHF), which fine-tunes our AI models based on how humans rate their generated responses. We are built on top of Microsoft's GPT family of large language models.‍
