ChatGPT has been all the buzz lately. The artificial intelligence bot has been generating conversations in social media, boardrooms, schools – everywhere, basically.

But what exactly is ChatGPT? When you ask the AI bot to explain its existence, the answer comes right away.

According to the AI itself, “ChatGPT is a conversational agent developed by OpenAI. It is a large language model trained on a massive amount of data to understand and generate human-like language.”

While the new tool is all the talk around the world, it has also sparked some concerns.

For instance, in classrooms , some students are using the AI bot to write entire essays. Meanwhile, hackers are also using it maliciously, to create dangerous code.

But if you’re still not sure what ChatGPT is and what you can use it for, keep reading for a simple guide about this popular chatbot.

What is ChatGPT?

ChatGPT is an Artificial Intelligence chatbot by the startup OpenAI. OpenAI is a San Francisco-based company that was co-founded by Elon Musk and Sam Altman in 2015.

Today, the startup is backed by a number of well-known investors, including Microsoft. 

The chatbot is one of the many types of generative artificial intelligence websites.

It allows registered users to write prompts and receive a human-like response with either texts, videos or images completely generated by the AI.

ChatGPT’s programming allows it to understand human language and create responses based on a large amount of data.

The program has a LLM (or large language model) structure. With a 175 billion parameter, the AI is currently one of the most powerful language processing tools. 

But what truly differentiates ChatGPT from other AI chatbots is its ability to create human-like responses. That is mostly due to the quantity of data that it is trained on. 

The AI chatbot also has the ability to log requests from earlier messages from users in a single thread and apply them to form answers in later conversations. 

However, ChatGPT also has its limitations. Some responses from the AI chatbot might contain inaccuracies.

For instance, it can formulate fictitious names and historical events, invent media that do not exist, or answer a math problem wrong. 

Still, the ChatGPT AI has achieved something that most tech experts believed computers could not do – and it’s only the beginning.
