ChatGPT is a dialogue-based chatbot that understands human language and can generate very human-like texts. The latest evolution of Generative Pre-Trained Transformer (GPT) is becoming quite the trend that is being believed to be the replacement of humans. Launched on November 30, ChatGPT had over one million users in less than a week.
Created and co-founded by Elon Musk and Silicon Vally, OpenAI foundation’s ChatGPT can interact in a conversational way by answering follow-up questions, admitting its mistakes, challenging incorrect premises, and rejecting inappropriate requests. The AI system can write poems, essays, scripts, and translate or summarize texts.

The AI has been trained using a huge sample of texts from the internet and can be used to be an alternative to the Google Search engine, capable of providing descriptions, answers, and solutions to complex questions, and different ways to write code and solve layout problems and optimization queries, as well. ChatGPT could also be used to generate content for websites, answer customer queries, provide recommendations and create automated chatbots.
Technology venture capitalist and one of the investors of OpenAI foundation, Sam Altman says that this was “an early demo of what’s possible. Soon you will be able to have helpful assistants that talk to you, answer questions, and give advice. Later you can have something that goes off and does tasks for you. Eventually you can have something that goes off and discovers new knowledge for you.”
Varun Mayya, CEO of software building company Avalon Labs told Global News, “ChatGPT seems like a human being. It’s just like a human being except it has all the world’s knowledge.”

Speculators predict that such a system will render many content production professions obsolete if the use of ChatGPT becomes more common, like journalism. Currently, however, the chatbot lacks nuance, critical-thinking skills or ethical decision-making ability, skillls deemed vital for journalism. The company has also conceded that the system often produces incorrect and nonsensical answers, presenting them as facts.
At the moment, the software is free to use and can be accessed and tried out here.
