What is ChatGPT and why is it important?


ChatGPT is a chatbot that can dialogue, look for code bugs, compose poems, write scripts, compose poems and more.

ChatGPT differs from other neural networks in its ability to perform tasks from different domains. The neural network can produce basic program code, generate financial analysis, summaries, give advice and answer questions.

In the future, OpenAI plans to make ChatGPT available as an interface for programmers to incorporate the neural network into their websites and projects.

ChatGPT: free or by subscription?

ChatGPT works as a chat box in a dialog box. The neural network can be used for free, you just need to register on the OpenAI website.

On February 1, 2022, the OpenAI team announced the launch of the ChatGPT Plus subscription. For $20 a month, subscribers will get:

  • Access to ChatGPT even during peak hours is often congested, making it impossible to use for some time;
  • Faster response times;
  • Priority access to new features.

What can ChatGPT do?

The range of ChatGPT’s capabilities is quite wide. In particular, you can use the neural network to:

  • Write code. Chat-bot prompts how to execute an operation or process, as well as searches for bugs or translates code from one programming language to another.Answer difficult questions. And, according to user observations, the quality of answers is higher than Google search.
  • Create scripts. With ChatGPT you can generate new episodes of old TV shows or set specific tasks to characters of the film universe. Also, ChatBot is capable of generating a game based on the movie.
  • Compose lyrics and sheet music.
  • Give medical advice. ChatGPT tells you what to do if you have headaches or allergies, but then advises to see a doctor.
  • Create plans and calculations. ChatGPT will help you calculate your total daily energy intake or create a personalised diet plan for weight loss. However, the chatbot sometimes makes mistakes in calculations, and these need to be corrected with additional questions.
  • Writing essays and essays. A Google researcher shared that the chatbot wrote an essay on the difference in approaches to nationalism from political scientists Benedict Anderson and Ernest Gellner in just a minute. Other users shared how a neural network wrote essays on diversity in the modern world and the US expansion into the West in the 19th century.
  • Generate queries for other neural networks. The chatbot compiles accurate prompts for Midjourney and other neural networks that generate pictures.

How do I use ChatGPT?

ChatGPT has limitations that you should be aware of when using it. For example, it is worth bearing in mind that:

  • ChatGPT sometimes writes plausible sounding, but wrong or meaningless answers. For this reason the administration of Stack Overflow IT forum temporarily prohibited posting chatbot answers.
  • The chatbot is sensitive to input phrase changes or repeated attempts to enter the same thing. The model may claim not to know the answer when one question is phrased, but when rephrased it answers correctly.
  • The model is verbose and abuses certain phrases due to a bias in the training data.
  • ChatGPT does not ask clarifying questions, but usually guesses what the user meant.
  • Chatbot reacts to inappropriate requests and sometimes shows bias. The ChatGPT interface has a built-in moderation mechanism to block certain types of unsafe content, but users can potentially bypass it.
  • The AI so far has “limited knowledge” of the post-2021 world and tends to avoid answering questions about specific people and events.
