US GAO Releases Short Report on Generative AI

The U.S. Government and Accountability Office has published a short and helpful paper on the basics concerning Generative AI.  The paper describes the operation of Generative AI in relatively simple language.  Additionally, the paper raises, at a high level, some of the pressing concerns related to Generative AI, such as bias, intentional and unintentional misinformation creation, copyrighted material used by Generative AI and privacy concerns.  Notably, the paper briefly addresses national security concerns with cybersecurity, including the use of AI to "rewrite code" to make identification of sources of attacks difficult and utilization of AI to improve cyberattacks by adversaries with low technical skills—"Generative AI: The Democratization of Cyberattacks.”
