OpenAI introduced a long-running question-answering AI called ChatGPT that answers complex questions conversationally.
It’s revolutionary technology because it’s trained to learn what people mean when they ask a question.
Many users are impressed by its ability to provide human-quality answers, giving rise to the feeling that it may eventually have the power to disrupt how people interact with computers and change the way we get information.
ChatGPT is an AI-powered natural language processing tool that lets you have human-like conversations and much more with a chatbot. A language model can answer questions, and help you with tasks like writing emails, essays, and code. Use is currently open to the public as ChatGPT is in the research and feedback phase.
ChatGPT is a variant of the GPT (Generative Pre-training Transformer) language model that has been specifically designed for chatbot applications. ChatGPT is trained on a large dataset of conversational exchanges and is able to generate human-like responses to user inputs in a conversational context.
Like other versions of the GPT model, ChatGPT is a transformer-based language model that uses self-attention mechanisms to process input sequences and generate output sequences. However, ChatGPT has been fine-tuned for chatbot applications and is able to generate more natural and appropriate responses in a conversational setting.
ChatGPT can be used to build chatbots that can engage in open-ended conversations with users, answering questions and providing information on a wide range of topics. It can also be used to generate responses to user inputs in a more structured conversational setting, such as in a customer service chatbot or an automated messaging system.
ChatGPT was created by OpenAI, an artificial intelligence and research company. The company launched ChatGPT on November 30, 2022. If the company’s name sounds familiar, that’s because OpenAI is also responsible for the creation of DALLE•2, a popular AI art generator, and Whisper, an automatic speech recognition system.
How does ChatGPT work?
OpenAI trained the language model using Reinforcement Learning from Human Feedback (RLHF), according to OpenAI. Human AI trainers gave the model interviews in which they played both roles, users and AI assistants.
What is the difference between ChatGPT and a search engine?
ChatGPT is a language model built for end-user conversation. A search engine indexes web pages on the Internet to help a user find the information they have requested. ChatGPT does not have the ability to search for information on the Internet and rather uses information learned from training data to generate a response, leaving room for error.
What are ChatGPT’s limitations?
Although ChatGPT looks very impressive, it still has limitations. Such limitations include the inability to answer questions that are worded in a specific way, requiring reformulation to understand the input question.
A bigger limitation is the lack of quality of the answers it provides – which can sometimes sound plausible but make no practical sense or be too detailed.
Finally, instead of asking you to clarify ambiguous questions, the model only guesses what your question means, which can lead to unintended question answers. This has already led the developer Q&A site StackOverflow to at least temporarily ban answers to questions generated by ChatGPT.
“The primary problem is that while the answers ChatGPT produces have a high rate of incorrectness, they usually look like they could be good, and the answers are very easy to create,” the Stack Overflow moderators say in the post. Critics argue that these tools are simply very good at putting words into an order that makes sense from a statistical point of view, but they cannot understand the meaning or know whether the statements they make are correct.
Why are some people worried about ChatGPT?
People are expressing concern that AI chatbots are replacing or atrophying human intelligence. For example, a chatbot can write an article on any topic efficiently in seconds, potentially eliminating the need for a human writer.
A chatbot can also write an entire essay in seconds, making it easy for students to cheat or avoid learning how to write properly.
Another concern of an AI chatbot is the possible spread of misinformation. Since the bot is not connected to the Internet, it could make mistakes in what information it shares.
The bot itself says, “My answers are not intended as fact and I always encourage people to verify any information they receive from me or any other source.” OpenAI itself also notes that ChatGPT sometimes writes “plausible-sounding but incorrect or nonsensical responses.”
Is ChatGPT a good or bad thing?
ChatGPT is a very advanced chatbot that has the potential to make people’s lives easier and help with everyday tedious tasks like writing emails or having to browse the web for answers.
However, there are some technical details that need to be figured out before it will be widely used to avoid negative outcomes such as the spread of misinformation. In general, AI and ML models rely on a lot of training and fine-tuning to reach ideal performance levels.
Does this mean AI is taking over the world? Maybe not yet, but OpenAI’s Altman certainly thinks human-style intelligence in AI isn’t that far off now.
In response to Musk’s comment about dangerously strong AI, Altman tweeted: “I agree that I’m close to dangerously strong AI in the sense of AI that poses a huge cybersecurity risk, for example. And I think we could get to true AGI in the next decade. so we have to take that risk very seriously.”
He also noted, “interesting to see how people start to debate whether powerful AI systems should behave as users want or as their creators intended. The question of what values we adapt these systems to will be one of the most important debates, what when society led.”
