ChatGPT explains what it is and highlights its limitations
The open platform is a sibling model to InstructGPT, and is growing in popularity by the day.
If you want to know more about something who better to ask that the subject itself. ‘Straight from the horse’s mouth’ is the expression often used when you get a response directly from the source, and so I decided to do just that to find out more about ChatGPS.
What is ChatGPT?
Of course, I could have asked the developers, or just read what they’d said on their website and promotional material, but where’s the fun in that? I wanted the artificial intelligence itself to tell me more, so I posed the simple question: ‘Write a summary of what ChatGPT is, how it can be used and what limitations it has.’ Here is the response.
ChatGPT is a variant of the GPT (Generative Pre-training Transformer) language model that has been specifically designed to generate human-like text in a conversational context. It is trained on a large dataset of human conversation and can generate text that is coherent, relevant, and appropriate in response to a given prompt or conversation history.
How can ChatGPT be used?
ChatGPT can be used in a variety of applications, including chatbots, dialogue systems, and conversation assistants. It can be used to generate responses to user input in real-time, providing a more natural and engaging conversational experience.
What limitations does ChatGPS have?
There are a few limitations to ChatGPT and other language models like it. Firstly, it is only as good as the data it has been trained on, so it may not be able to generate responses to prompts or situations that it has not seen before. Additionally, language models like ChatGPT are not able to provide personal or emotional support or engage in deep conversations about complex topics. They are simply programmed to generate text based on patterns in the data they have been trained on.
So there you have it. The mouth of the virtual horse gives us its version. Let’s watch closely as it evolves...
