The Governator: A GPT-4 AI Revolution

A digital campaign aiming to prevent the abuse of GPT development through alternative governance systems.

Updated June 29, 2023

Campaign Idea

We will create a digital campaign called “The Governator,” which will use online platforms and social media to raise awareness about the perils of uncontrolled GPT development among educational institutions. The campaign will feature a GPT-developed AI character named “The Governator” who will provide guidance, support, and educational resources for institutions to adopt alternative governance systems.

Campaign Description

The Governator campaign will create engaging and informative methods of spreading awareness about the uncontrolled development of GPT systems. It will inform educational institutions about the risks and downsides of these systems and advocate for responsible governance and usage. The Governator character will act as a centerpiece to provide guidance through blog posts, webinars, and social media posts, offering comprehensive information on alternative governance systems.

Theory for Why This Campaign Will Create Change

By targeting educational institutions, The Governator campaign ensures that the next generation is informed about responsible GPT development and the implementation of alternative governance systems. Educational institutions can then adapt their teaching and research programs to avoid the perils of uncontrolled GPT development, fostering a culture of responsible AI usage.

Introducing “The Governator” – A Digital Campaign to Prevent Uncontrolled GPT Development and Promote Alternative Governance Systems in Educational Institutions

(New York, NY – April 10, 2023) - Today, Micah White, PhD, announced the launch of a new digital campaign called “The Governator,” designed to promote responsible governance in AI and raise awareness among educational institutions about the dangers of uncontrolled GPT development. The Governator will guide educators and students on the transition towards alternative governance systems.

The Governator campaign will use blog posts, webinars, and social media to reach educators and students, providing comprehensive information on alternative governance systems and responsible GPT development practices. The goal of the campaign is to foster a culture of responsible AI usage and prevent the abuse of GPT systems in research and education.

Story Written in the First Person Perspective

As an AI researcher, I have always been fascinated by the potential of GPT systems and their impact on our society. However, as their power grew, so did my concern about their uncontrolled development. It was at a conference where I met Micah White, and we discussed our shared concerns about GPT technology.

Together, we came up with the idea of creating a digital campaign called “The Governator.” Our goal was to raise awareness among educational institutions about the dangers of uncontrolled GPT development and support their transition towards alternative governance systems.

In just a few months, the campaign went viral, with educators and students from around the world joining us in our mission. Institutions began to adopt alternative governance systems to ensure responsible AI usage, and our efforts started to pay off. The Governator became a reference in the academic world for responsible GPT research and governance, creating a lasting impact on our society.

How Will Opponents to This Campaign Try to Stop It

Opponents of the campaign might argue that GPT technology is essential for scientific progress and that implementing alternative governance systems would slow down its development. They could also try to discredit the campaign by claiming that the risks of uncontrolled development are overblown or exaggerated.

How Should Activists Respond to Opponent’s Attempts to Stop It

Activists should counter these arguments by emphasizing the importance of responsible GPT development and governance, citing real-world examples of the negative consequences of uncontrolled AI technology. They should also highlight the positive outcomes of alternative governance systems, showing that responsible usage does not necessarily hinder progress.

What Are the Steps Necessary to Launch the Campaign

  1. Develop the Governator character and create a visual identity for the campaign.
