What is ChatGPT

What do you do when you are confused or stuck on a problem? You ask questions to the respective professor, a responsible person, or a search engine, right? What if I say you can now chat to get your answers? 

Seems impossible right? But it has been made possible with the introduction of ChatGPT. You might have got an overview or rough idea of what ChatGPT is! However, to explain to you the exact meaning we have formed this blog on ChatGPT.

The article is solely dedicated to ChatGPT. You will get information on what it is, how it works, and what are its advantages and limitations. Moreover, why was it banned in NYC?

What is ChatGPT?

ChatGPT is a large language model (LLM) that uses artificial intelligence (AI) to generate conversations. It is based on the GPT-3.5 model, which was developed by OpenAI. 

Reinforcement Learning with Human Feedback (RLHF) is an additional layer of training for ChatGPT. It uses human feedback and learns the ability to follow and provide satisfactory answers to humans. 

The model is trained on millions of conversations and can generate responses that are both accurate and natural-sounding.

ChatGPT is designed to be used in a variety of applications, such as chatbots, virtual assistants, and other conversational applications. It can be used to create interactive conversations with users, as well as to provide automated customer service. 

It can also be used to generate personalized content for websites and applications.

ChatGPT is LLM (Large Language Model).

Yes, that’s true. ChatGPT is one of the LLMs (Large Language Models). It is a huge revolution in the technology industry when an LLM is trained to consider human feedback before answering. 

It means the AI learned how to understand human expectations when they ask some question or query.

LLMs can only predict the next word, but it’s not necessary that the word will be relevant to the sentence and will make sense. However, the ChatGPT is LLM, which doesn’t only provide a prediction of the next word but is accurate and sensible as well.

How ChatGPT Works?

ChatGPT works by taking a user’s input and using it to generate a response. The system uses natural language processing (NLP) to understand the user’s input and generate an appropriate response. The system then uses artificial intelligence (AI) to generate a response that is both accurate and natural-sounding.

How ChatGPT Works?

The system is trained on millions of conversations, so it can generate responses that are both accurate and natural-sounding. It can also generate personalized content for websites and applications. The system can also be used to create interactive conversations with users, as well as to provide automated customer service.

ChatGPT: Advantages and Limitations

ChatGPT demo2

The above screenshot is the page you will be greeted with after signing up for ChatGPT. Well, on the start page, it will show you its capabilities and limitations.

The capabilities state it can remember your conversation, allows you to provide follow-up for corrections, and can even decline inappropriate requests. And as for limitations, it might occasionally generate incorrect information, harmful or biased content, and limited knowledge.

Now, let’s comprehensively understand its advantages and limitations:

Advantages of ChatGPT:

By now, you might have understood that ChatGPT is an absolute wonder in many ways. It shows how AI can also understand human behavior and expectation. This complex model based on GPT-3.5 has multiple advantages, and they are as follows:

(1) It produces high-quality writing which enables it to produce more intelligent and compelling content.

(2) You can use it to perform more advanced reasoning tasks since it supports more complex instructions.

(3) It doesn’t provide answers in shorter form or a single word. Instead in the longer form explain the answer in detail. Refer to the image added below for reference:

As you can see above, how ChatGPT explained the difference between the words nuance and nuisance in detail and even showed tips on how to remember them correctly.

(4) It’s easy to use and FREE!

Limitations of ChatGPT:

Even though ChatGPT has many advantages, there are a few limitations of ChatGPT as well. It is still in the early stage of development and reviewing, hence, there will be times when it gives out nuisance answers that won’t make any sense. Here are a few limitations that OpenAI states about the ChatGPT:

(1) During RL training, there’s currently no source of truth; 

(2) Training the model to be more cautious causes it to decline questions that it can answer correctly; and 

(3) Supervised training misleads the model because the ideal answer depends on what the model knows, rather than what the human demonstrator knows.

How to Use ChatGPT?

The answer to this depends on where you want to use it. If you want to use it as your personal assistant providing you answers without you having to go through websites, then it’s pretty simple.

  • Go to the OpenAI website.
  • Scroll to the Features section on the footer.
  • Click on ChatGPT.
  • Then, click on Try ChatGPT.
  • Sign up and ask your questions and queries through chat and get answers.

However, if you want to connect the ChatGPT to your website or mobile application, then the process is a bit different:

  • Create an account on the OpenAI website.
  • After that, browse the API keys page to create a new API key.
  • To access the ChatGPT model whenever needed, copy and store the API key safely.
  • To access the ChatGPT model from Python code, you must install the OpenAI Python package. You can install the package using the command line: pip install openai
  • As soon as you install the OpenAI package, access the ChatGPT model and produce an answer to any natural query.

Where Can You Use ChatGPT?

Till now read about ChatGPT, its advantages, limitations, how it works, and how to use it. However, in this section, we will see what are the different ways you can use ChatGPT.

  1. Solving problems including mathematics, coding errors, etc.
  2. Get information on anything you want to know about.
  3. Provide answers to your customer’s queries by implementing the model on the website and mobile app.
  4. Develop a mobile application.
  5. Write a blog post (don’t worry, this isn’t written by ChatGPT).
  6. Assisting in any task involving texts.

Why was ChatGPT banned in NYC?

You might be thinking, why would anyone ban this amazing application, let alone an entire city? But think about it, there will be a plausible reason behind that. Also, ChatGPT was banned from school and college devices. Getting the hint?

Yes, the model was being used by students to cheat in exams. Hence, the government needed to take this step. 

This isn’t it. As per The Verge, it was also banned by top AI conferences along with any other AI tools to write academic papers. Reason? It restricts the learning of students.

Regardless of all that, ChatGPT has been considered an alternative to Google by many on social media platforms. Believe it or not!

Conclusion on a New Invention in the AI World!
