ChatGPT’s AI Storm: Benefits and Drawbacks

Many of us are familiar with the term “chatbot” and what it is supposed to do. This year, however, OpenAI’s ChatGPT transformed a simple experience into something entirely new. ChatGPT is regarded as a game-changing example of an AI chatbot and what the technology is capable of when applied at scale.

What is Chatbot?

  • A chatbot (derived from the term “chat robot”) is a computer program that simulates human conversation via voice or text communication and is intended to assist in problem-solving.
  • Chatbots are used by businesses to engage with customers in addition to traditional customer service channels such as phone, email, and social media.

What is ChatGPT?

  • Simple definition: ChatGPT is a chatbot built on a large-scale transformer-based language model that is trained on a diverse dataset of text and is capable of generating human-like responses to prompts.
  • A model of human-like language: It is based on GPT-3.5, a deep learning-based language model that generates human-like text.
  • Details make it more interesting: However, ChatGPT is more engaging than the older GPT-3 model, which only took text prompts and tried to continue with its own generated text. It produces much more detailed text and can even generate poems.
  • Remembers conversations: Memory is another distinguishing feature. The bot can recall previous comments in a conversation and relay them to the user.
  • Similarity to humans: A conversation with ChatGPT is similar to conversing with a smart computer that appears to have human-like intelligence.

Will AI replace all of our daily writing?

  • ChatGPT is not entirely accurate: Even OpenAI admits that it is not entirely accurate. It is also clear that some of ChatGPT’s essays lack the depth that a real human expert might exhibit when writing on the same subject.
  • ChatGPT lacks the depth of the human mind: it lacks the nuance that a human can often provide. For example, when asked on ChatGPT how to deal with a cancer diagnosis. The responses were courteous but generic. The kind of responses you’d find in any general self-help book.
  • It lacks human-like experiences: AI has a long way to go. After all, it lacks the same experiences as humans.
  • ChatGPT does not perform well in code: ChatGPT is currently writing basic code. As several reports have shown, ChatGPT isn’t quite there yet. However, a future in which basic code is written using AI does not appear to be so far-fetched right now.

Limitations of ChatGPT

  • ChatGPT is still vulnerable to misinformation: Despite the bot’s capabilities, there are some limitations. ChatGPT is still susceptible to misinformation and biases, which plagued previous versions of GPT as well. The model may provide incorrect answers to algebraic problems, for example.
  • ChatGPT can write incorrect answers: OpenAI understands some flaws and has noted them down on its announcement blog that “ChatGPT sometimes writes plausible-sounding but incorrect or nonsensical answers.

@the end

OpenAI’s ChatGPT transformed a simple experience into something entirely new. ChatGPT is a groundbreaking example of an AI chatbot and what the technology can accomplish when used at scale. Despite its limitations, ChatGPT is a fun little bot to interact with. However, some issues must be addressed before it becomes an unavoidable part of human life.
