Today, we will discuss "What is ChatGPT? Is it here for our jobs?" One of the most fascinating abilities that the human population is capable of is communication. Not only that, humans are able to do this in thousands of languages. Every generation that comes and goes even invents new words and passes them around in their circles.
And now, the world has come to this: communication and understanding are no longer limited to human-to-human interactions, thanks to artificial intelligence. In fact, just recently, the Internet has been raving about one of AI’s recent developments, ChatGPT.
ChatGPT is the most recent project of OpenAI, an AI research and deployment company. OpenAI’s mission for this project is to create an AI model that cannot just answer questions but also carry out conversations.
Most people are familiar with chatbots nowadays. They are capable of answering questions and following instructions based on keywords. ChatGPT takes this technology thousands of notches higher. It uses the same dialogue format, but ChatGPT can “answer follow-up questions, admit its mistakes, challenge incorrect premises, and reject inappropriate requests,” according to its site.
For any questions you might have, ChatGPT has an answer, and its answers are much nuanced, unlike the conversations people are used to having with computers. For example, you may ask, “What are some questions I can ask my partner?”
ChatGPT will enumerate suggestions, but it mixes in some words of advice in the end that the questions may vary depending on the level of the relationship. It even casually throws in some bonus tips. Cool right?
ChatGPT is made possible through natural language processing, a branch of AI that deals with the comprehension, generation, and manipulation of human language. Before ChatGPT, OpenAI launched a model called InstructGPT that carries out instructions based on prompts and generates responses. OpenAI further developed this technology and changed the data collection setup and came up with Chat GPT.
ChatGPT was trained to make conversations with the help of human AI trainers that made sample dialogues between a computer and a human,
Ask ChatGPT what it is capable of and it will give you the following answers. It can generate and understand text based on natural languages. It can also answer questions, write articles and stories, and translate, summarize, and complete text.
As if that’s not amazing enough, ChatGPT is also capable of entity recognition, sentiment analysis, adn text classification.
ChatGPT did say that it can write stories and articles and even translate. However, the caveat came from the language model itself–it is trained using a specific dataset and its capabilities are limited by said data.
When it comes to writing, nothing beats human experience, that which is outside of text or data already contained in the Web. It may be able to write using a certain style and tone, but emotions and the ability to connect are still supreme human qualities.
But, this is not to put humans versus language models. Definitely, some writing and text-related tasks will become loads easier with the help of a genius such as ChatGPT. It has its limitations but its power can transform work timelines and boost productivity–exactly what technology is for.
