The ChatGPT artificial intelligence model has had more than a million users in just five days since its launch. Artificial intelligence (AI) research company OpenAI on Wednesday announced ChatGPT, a prototype dialogue-based AI chatbot capable of understanding natural language and responding in natural language.
The launch a few days ago of ChatGPT, the new OpenAI product, has filled Twitter and other social networks with open mouths. Until now we had seen how generative tools were applied to the image with Dall-E or Midjourney, while the text field was also surprising for those who had started to experiment with it. But the arrival of this new chat, open to everyone, seems to have achieved a common sense of surprise.
We are going to explain what ChatGPT is and what you can do with it, a chat system with artificial intelligence that is surprising us all.
What is ChatGPT?
ChatGPT is a chat system based on the GPT-3 Artificial Intelligence language model, developed by the OpenAI company. It is a model with more than 175 million parameters and trained with large amounts of text to perform language-related tasks, from translation to text generation.
Artificial intelligence is trained based on text, questions are asked and information is added, so that this system, based on corrections over time, “trains itself” to automatically perform the task to which has been designed.
In the case of ChatGPT, this AI has been trained to hold conversations with anyone. Its algorithms should be able to understand what you are asking precisely, including adjectives and variations that you add to your sentences, and to answer you in a coherent way.
The most surprising thing about this specific AI chat is that it is capable of giving you very accurate and complete answers, even for several paragraphs. In addition, in these answers, he is able to express himself in a natural way and with very exact information, which makes it very difficult to distinguish that the text has been generated by AI.
How to use ChatGPT?
Starting to have your conversations with this artificial intelligence is very simple. All you have to do is enter its official website, which is https://chat.openai.com. The first time you enter you will have to create an account on the OpenAI website, but everything is completely free, including the chat.
When using it, it is recommended that you experiment with different types of requests to explore all the features of the AI. In cases like this, ingenuity when making questions or requests can be key to obtaining surprising results.
The only thing you have to do is remember that everything you write will be recorded, and can be reviewed later by the OpenIA developers to continue training ChatGPT. Therefore, try not to include your personal information or requests that are potentially dangerous or criminal.
How does it work?
Trained by AI and machine learning, the system is designed to provide information and answer questions through a conversational interface.
The AI is trained on a huge sample of text extracted from the internet.
OpenAI said the new AI was created with a focus on ease of use. “The dialog format allows ChatGPT to answer follow-up questions, admit mistakes, challenge incorrect premises, and reject inappropriate requests,” the research organization said in a statement last week.
Could Google be getting its first glimpse of a competitor?
Google and its search engine have been the parents and rulers of how we consume information on the Internet for the past two decades. Its market share is absolute, despite the fact that big rivals such as Microsoft with Bing and more modern alternatives – DuckDuckGo, for example – have tried to challenge it.
Asking ChatGPT about certain Pokémon’s flaws and strengths, for example, will result in a quick response that provides all the necessary information. Google, on the other hand, will simply provide a list of links, none of which guarantees that you will actually find the information you are looking for. At the same time, such a well-informed AI raises some concerns.
Around this hegemony, a way of monetizing and doing business on the Internet has been configured: positioning yourself first to respond in Google’s responses. The media lives largely on Google, millions of companies around the world too, as many professionals… And the search engine has also been the spearhead of the branch of the online advertising market which until now was distributed with Meta, the old Facebook.
However, ChatGPT offers for many questions a mechanism for finding information and resolving doubts that seems more natural: the question-answer model that comes to us from Socrates.
