Google’s AI chatbot is trained by humans who say they’re overworked, underpaid, and frustrated

Laura Edelson, a computer scientist and misinformation researcher, commented on Google’s AI chatbot, and what goes on behind the invisible backend of the generative AI boom. “If you want to ask, what is the secret sauce of Bard and ChatGPT? It’s all of the internet. And it’s all of this labeled data that these labelers create,” said Edelson. “It’s worth remembering that these systems are not the work of magicians — they are the work of thousands of people and their low-paid labor.”
