Why in News?
- OpenAI has recently introduced a new chatbot called ChatGPT, which is a ‘conversational’ AI and will answer queries just like a human would.
- The ChatGPT can answer “follow-up questions”, and can also “admit its mistakes, challenge incorrect premises, and reject inappropriate requests.”
- It Is based on the company’s GPT 3.5 series of language learning models (LLM).
- GPT stands for Generative Pre-trained Transformer 3 and this is a kind of computer language model that relies on deep learning techniques to produce human-like text based on inputs.
- The model is trained to predict what will come next, and that’s why one can technically have a ‘conversation’ with ChatGPT.
- The chatbot was also trained using Reinforcement Learning from Human Feedback (RLHF).
- It can be used in real-world applications such as digital marketing, online content creation, answering customer service queries or as some users have found, even to help debug code.
- The bot can respond to a large range of questions while imitating human speaking styles.
- It is being seen as a replacement for the basic emails, party planning lists, CVs, and even college essays and homework.
- It can also be used to write code, as examples have shown.
- The chatbot displayed clear racial and sexist biases, which remains a problem with almost all AI models.
- The chatbot gives answers which are grammatically correct and read well– though some have pointed out that these lack context and substance, which is largely true.
- ChatGPT occasionally produces inaccurate information and that its knowledge is restricted to global events that occurred before 2021.
