Is chat gPT and other open aI sources perpetuating Inequality ?

Is systemic discrimination perpetuated by ChatGPT and other open generative AI sources? Join us for “Guess the Resume,” where two resumes generated by ChatGPT with the same prompt  except for the fact that one was generated for a man and one for a woman. 

This interactive activity is based off of the 2014 Amazon used an AI recruiting software, trained on the data of applications of employees hired the past 10 years at amazon. The existing pool of Amazon software engineers is overwhelmingly male, and as a result the recruiting software downgraded resumes that included the word “women’s.”  They scrapped the software after a year of using it.
