All about ChatGPT
You may have read about ChatGPT recently. You may know that ChatGPT threatens to destroy everything dear and sacred to our civilization. Well, maybe not to this degree, but it’s certainly making waves on the internet thanks to its impressive features.
But in case ChatGPT doesn’t ring, here’s a quick explanation.
A chatbot that interacts with you. Forgive me if you’re wondering what the fuss is about. Isn’t it the same as annoying chatbots asking for help when you’re having trouble with your carrier or other services? After all, ChatGPT is a very special chatbot and this is just the beginning.
You can also write software, poetry, songs and short stories.
Amazing results with ChatGPT
The power of ChatGPT comes from its amazing human-like responses. Not only that, but with an incredible amount of data at your disposal, you can cross-reference and extrapolate data to generate new results.
In one of his notable examples, a user shared his software code on this chatbot and asked what was wrong. The bot responded in a very natural way, explaining that I didn’t know what the problem was and asking if I could provide more context. ChatGPT will naturally point out potential problems in your code if the user is unable to provide more context.
And perhaps the best example is ChatGPT’s main website. A user asked the bot about Fermat’s Little Theorem. After the explanation, the user asked how it was used in cryptography and got a good answer. Now is the best time:
A user asked the bot to write a limerick to summarize the conversation, and ChatGPT did it perfectly. The list goes on and on, but the main concept is that it goes far beyond simple answers.
You can also try it for free by just visiting his website on ChatGPT and registering an account. Then, in a simple user interface, write what you want your bot to do. B. “Explain the difference between Star Wars and Star Trek” or “Write an essay about mud”.
What is ChatGPT?
ChatGPT has an intricate design under the hood, but it contains no technical magic. It’s all about machine learning (ML). In software based on machine learning algorithms, humans “train” the software by feeding it large amounts of data and teaching it the correct answers.
There are various techniques for doing this, but suffice it to say that the software “learns” from mistakes and fine-tunes itself until it provides accurate information. In the case of ChatGPT, human trainers provided both sides of the conversation, taking further steps into a conversation-like format. But how do we determine which is the more human-like answer? It was trained using a reward model. That is, they provided answers ranked by quality. This allows the bot to “know” how best to craft an answer.
Are we in the future?
It all sounds great and is really impressive. You may wonder what’s next.
Robots and flying cars that run below us. However, ChatGPT is not without its problems, some of which are due to its design.
One of the main problems is that sometimes there are answers that are completely wrong but very clear. This is a difficult problem to solve as there are no reliable sources of information during training. If you program your bot more carefully, it will reject questions it can answer.
Another problem is improper requests. They programmed them to reject them, but sometimes they don’t. Upon release, there were some issues where the developers decided to “ban” certain themes. Also, in some cases, the answer may be biased.
As you can see, there is still some polishing work to do. The problem is that some of these issues are unique, so it’s anyone’s guess if they can be fixed. While this model is impressive, it still falls short of humans in terms of adaptability.
About AI and machine learning
There is a lot of speculation about AI, including whether it is a dangerous technology that will take over us. Let’s take a look at what AI is and where we are right now.
AI or artificial intelligence means that machines have the ability to think autonomously. For example, in a toaster you can:
You can bake bread. However, they “order” him how to do it. Specifically:
Turn it on, put the pan in, and set the toast level and it will do it.
AI-powered software and devices don’t work that way. They have the ability to analyze situations and adapt to them to get the job done. A good example of this is the vacuum cleaner robot. Obstacles can be sensed and avoided. They even know how to get back to the charging station.
These abilities make people wonder if the device could suddenly go insane and kill everyone or install itself as a ruler. , part of the fear stems from a misunderstanding of terminology. There are many types of AI, and their definitions are constantly changing. To avoid confusion, AI can be cataloged by its capabilities. This includes terms like reactive machines, limited memory, theory of mind, and terrifying self-aware AI.
But it can also be categorized by how it works, with terms popping up like machine learning, deep learning, NLP, and robotics. Therefore, AI models are both reactive machines and deep learning.
However, the term of primary concern is artificial intelligence in general, also known as self-aware AI. This is a theoretical concept that allows machines to be self-aware, conscious and emotional. Currently, at least as far as we know, there is no software or device with this capability.
The problem with this is that no one really knows how consciousness works, much less how it is created and how it affects us. Even so, there are many ethical issues. B. Entitlement, Valid Coverage.
ChatGPT, yes; General AI, no
In summary, ChatGPT is a valid tool that could be improved to the point of being indistinguishable from humans, but it’s not there yet. Software developers still have to write code, authors have too.
But the big question is what comes next. Could AI replace humans in language-related tasks as well, and if so, would it be after everything else? Will we live in a jobless utopia where only machines work or a dystopian nightmare with sensory devices that enslave us? No one knows, but just in case, don’t forget how to remove the battery.
