From a socio-economic perspective, On the Dangers of Stochastic Parrots: Can Language Models Be Too Big?, the Parrot Papers silhouette the dichotomy between the technology industry and the world around it. The Parrot Papers highlight many global issues that may discourage progress in areas such as strategies to prevent climate change and the social paradigms of language. The Parrot Papers present imminent challenges that are worldwide dangers and should require expansive discussions and solutions.

Climate change is very complex problem that weaves its way into other complicated issues. Different areas in the world have different climates and the effects of climate change may express themselves in one way in one location and another way in another. These effects may also occur on different timelines. The large amount of resources that are required to perform some areas of technology has to be evaluated as a proponent of climate change. Data centres require large amounts of electricity and cooling resources for which transparent metrics can guide policy.

The social paradigm of language is historical as well as dynamic. New research in how language affects society is regularly emerging. The automation of artificial intelligence and machine learning algorithms require audit to prevent potential miscommunication by these tools. Releasing uninhabited tools to govern public discourse has risks. These risks should be adequately assessed, reviewed, and mitigated. Deceiving the research community about the possibility of these risks leads to more suspicion about how these tools are employed.

The Parrot Papers illuminates central concerns that are not only potential problems themselves, but can lead to greater problems in other areas. The Parrot Papers expands existing research in artificial intelligence and machine learning to propose a path forward for researchers to address areas where artificial intelligence algorithms and the platforms that run them can have a more beneficial role in humanity. The Parrot Papers contributed to a key area of artificial intelligence research.
