ChatGpt can now remember who you are and what you like

OpenAI just announced a new feature called “memory” which allows its popular generative AI, ChatGpt, to remember information about who uses it and about conversations that have already taken place with a human being.

There are two ways to set “memory”. The first is to directly provide the AI ​​with the most relevant information about your account or habits. The second is to leave it to AI to deduce this information over time. And to memorize them, in fact.

For now, “memory” is just a test open to a “small portion” of users, communicated by OpenAI on its official blog.

While on the one hand this function seems very useful, because it allows the user not to start from scratch every time when starting a new conversation with the AI, on the other hand it represents an additional concern for user privacy.

The problem is that this evolution appears inevitable. To become (or rather, appear) increasingly intelligent and efficient, AI must know more and more about who uses it.

This thing, if you think about it, has been happening for some time on platforms that are considered – rightly or wrongly – more harmless than ChatGpt: social networks and streaming services like Netflix, for example, promptly recommend the “right” contents for a user based on the his tastes intercepted by algorithms.

OpenAI claims that users will have full control over what “memory” can know, and that it has trained ChatGpt not to remember sensitive data such as health data.

You can also ask the AI ​​to “forget” personal information that has been provided to it. This is news that will need to be explored further: in fact, the difficulty for AI developers in deleting specific information from the data set on which an artificial intelligence model has been trained is known.

Finally, GPTs will also be able to make use of the “memory” function, i.e. the personalized AI that users registered with ChatGpt Plus can create.

OpenAI gives the example of GPT Books which can remember a user’s favorite book or the genres they prefer.
