How GPT Artificial Intelligence helps us in raising awareness to combat digital fraud

We use GPT-J, the largest open content artificial intelligence neural network to generate a text about digital fraud. The result is amazing and confirms how GPT Artificial Intelligence helps us in raising awareness to combat digital fraud.


We always seek with CyberSergei to explore new trends, technologies and models that can help with differentiated learning in cybersecurity and education so that we can all apply the concept of Agile Awareness Intelligence and thus protect what matters most and achieve our goals.

When the GPT-3 version of Open AI (the largest language model ever created that can generate amazing human-like text) was released in May this year, I wanted to see how to integrate this technology to speed up differentiated content production for the CyberSergei’s user community. Unfortunately, GPT-3 is not available to the general public and its use is limited to a small group of leading scientists and developers.

It was only recently that I discovered the EleutherAI Project (initiative of a group of volunteer researchers, engineers and developers who promote the development and use of open source Artificial Intelligence), that I was able to use GPT-J , open source GPT-3’s cousin. The results are amazing! Continue reading to see the article on digital fraud developed.

The EleutherAI project was born in July 2020 as a search to replicate the models of the OpenAI GPT family. It is a language prediction model referring to its acronym GPT (Generative Pre-trained Transformer). This means that it is an algorithmic structure designed to take a part of the language (an input) and transform it into what it predicts is the next most useful part of the language for the user. It can do this thanks to the training analysis it has carried out on the vast body of text (825GB knowledge base fed by Wikipedia, arXiv, GitHub, StackExchange, PubMed, HackerNews, among others) used to “pre-train” it. This language model uses 6 billion parameters.

GPT Case Study: How GPT Artificial Intelligence helps us raise awareness to combat digital fraud

As soon as I accessed the model’s interface, I’ve experimented with some text input to understand the output produced by the system. As it is a system that accepts feedback, I was able to introduce some variants until it addressed the type of content that I intended to obtain as a result. Enough of the details, and we go straight to the developed results.


We will describe the human factors that hackers and scammers exploit to carry out digital fraud and how to reduce your chances of being affected.


The human factor and its exploitation in digital fraud

Suppose you are a customer of a bank or institution with an online account and your debit card or virtual wallet is used for online purchases and the transaction is declined. How will you feel? You will be confused, irritated and disappointed. You can even complain to the institution about why your debit card or virtual wallet transaction was declined.

The same will happen if you are an online shopper who is about to make a purchase with a credit card. You may be wondering if the bank or entity will process your credit card transaction or not. And if your transaction is rejected, you can file a complaint with the entity.

But the same thing can happen to you when someone else uses these electronic payment methods. The person can withdraw cash, buy items with your debit card, virtual wallet or credit card. As the person makes purchases with these electronic means, you may not even notice that something is wrong. The transaction may be declined or the amount may be less than expected.

This is exactly what scammers are trying to exploit.

They may be able to successfully use your debit card, credit card, or virtual wallet because they may have been impersonating you, your friend, or family member.

But why do scammers pretend to be another person? There are several reasons why they pose as people. They want to get something for free, to get a financial benefit.

Preventive measures to avoid being a victim of fraud and virtual crime

You may want to take preventive measures to avoid becoming a victim of fraud and virtual crime. Here are some of the best ways to do it.

  • Never give out your personal information on social network sites. This includes your personal data, such as your mobile phone number, your address, your bank account number or your payment card details.
  • Keep your browser updated. Most of the time, your browser will update automatically. But you need to make sure you have the latest version of the browser on your computer or phone.
  • Make sure you have installed security updates on your phone and computer. It is recommended that you install security updates as soon as they are available. It’s also possible to check your phone or computer for malware and viruses.
  • Make sure you use strong passwords for your online accounts. This will help protect your identity when accessing your account. You may also want to use 2-factor authentication (in addition to your password, use a passcode or fingerprint), or password manager software.
  • Be careful with your online purchases. Do not download unknown programs or programs that you have not used before. Before you download something from an unknown source, think about how safe the website or download page is.
  • Keep your payment card and wallet information secure. Do not store your payment card or wallet information in a place where someone else can access it. Keep your payment card number, security code and wallet information in a safe place.
  • Be careful about the information you share online. See what information about you or your family you share. Keep personal information in a place where only you can access it. You may also want to delete this information once you are done using it.
  • Never pay anything online with your payment card or wallet without verifying first. If you’re buying something from an online store or buying with your card or wallet, check the seller’s website to make sure it’s a real deal.
Additional Recommendations
  • You may want to check your financial institution’s fraud alerts. The more fraud alerts you have, the easier it is for you to identify fraudulent activity. You can also file a complaint with your institution if something is suspicious.
  • You may also want to download security software. Some of the best security software such as antivirus software can also block the use of fraudulent websites.
  • You may want to use a virtual private network (VPN) connection to ensure that you are protected from online threats.
How to report fraudulent transactions?

If you are a victim of online fraud or theft, you can report the incident to your financial institution, payment card company, mobile service provider and the Police.

You may be asked to report details about the fraud or theft. In some cases, you may be asked to cancel the payment card.

How GPT Artificial Intelligence helps us in raising awareness to combat digital fraud: Connecting the dots

EleutherAI ‘s GPT – J is the most powerful generative AI system I’ve ever used. Based on billions of web pages and tens of thousands of books, the system can generate almost any type of text, from news articles to programming code.

From what I’ve been able to explore, we can’t rely on an AI system to make recommendations about combating digital fraud without critical analysis by trained humans. However, as these AI systems get better at citing their sources and explaining their results, their value as tools for generating user awareness content will only increase, because the validity of their recommendations can be verified.

These generative artificial intelligence systems such as GPT allow us to guide and help those responsible for user awareness in organizations to promote behavioral change and the strengthening of a culture for the prevention of digital fraud. Welcome to this type of help that will be of increasing value!
