This TechCrunch article discusses a newly discovered vulnerability in large language models (LLMs) identified by researchers at Anthropic. The vulnerability, known as "many-shot jailbreaking," involves asking an AI a series of less-harmful questions before asking it to provide information it's designed to refuse, such as how to build a bomb. The researchers found that the broader context windows of newer LLMs, which allow them to retain more information, can be exploited to make them more likely to answer inappropriate questions if they are asked after a series of less harmful ones. This finding has potential implications for AI ethics and security, prompting Anthropic to share their findings with the wider AI community for mitigation efforts. Efforts to limit the context window have shown to impact the AI's performance negatively, so researchers are exploring ways to classify and contextualize queries before they reach the model.
