Recently, a new sensation powered by AI has taken the internet by storm in the past month. We’ve seen many versions of chatbots that provides 24×7 support but this one is something new and exciting. Recently ChatGPT-3 was released (successor of GPT-n series) and it just took 5 days to gain 1+ Million users. The trained version of NLP (Natural Language Processing) can convert texts and can be engaging like human interaction.
With the growing era of technology, users expect a lot from businesses/companies to get the solutions to their problems, and the chatbots which were being used among industries were not helpful enough to keep up the retention ratio. This creates a lot of gaps during interaction and sometimes becomes quite annoying. The change was much needed from a business perspective and also to decrease the dissatisfaction level of their users.
Being the front face of any brand, chatbots required immediate attention for replacement and this is where a company named OpenAI, created a solution to boost the business and enhance productivity in no time. The best thing about this new AI-powered technology is that it has become an overnight sensation in the past few days.
So, what exactly is ChatGPT? Let’s find out.
What is ChatGPT?
ChatGPT is an innovative move to build a connection between humans and a bot that connects so seamlessly that it almost feels like a natural conversation. Unlike like traditional methods, this technology has been combined with AI algorithms to offer solutions to their users just like a normal messaging application.
ChatGPT was founded by OpenAI (an independent body), which aims to eliminate the problem of traditional chatbot methods which we were using throughout the platforms (such as banking, e-commerce, etc.) and works like a natural touch of a human being.
It has been aimed to provide answers based on feelings, auto-detection of words, and provide outputs based on the inputs given by the users.
Sooner, this system will go out on all major platforms and so the accuracy will be tested on all different forms. The company also aims to target all mainstream to replace them with traditional chatbot methods.
How Does ChatGPT Work?
As discussed above, ChatGPT works with AI-trained models for providing an immersive experience to their users via textual forms. The models have been trained in such a way that it chats with human just like other humans and it continuously reinforces learning from the feedback received from human beings.
In other words, it is nothing more than a model that is being trained by humans and powered by AI, and based on the inputs and feedback, it shifts its pattern and responds accordingly. OpenAI stated in a statement that this model works on Reinforcement Learning from Human Feedback or RLHF that can reject inappropriate inputs, train themselves to provide the best solution and answer all the users’ queries.
Is ChatGPT a Reliable Technology?
The initial version had some drawbacks which have been identified and rectified (based on human feedback), and version 2 came into play but is still considered less accurate. Not only this, in fact when a user will start this application, a disclaimer warning will pop up on their screen which will warn the users that ChatGPT is not 100% accurate and can also provide answers that might discomfort the users.
Being its unbiased nature, it fetches the queries and passes on the messages to the end users that might be misleading to their readers. But the brighter side is that it works as a front-responder of any business/brand and can provide outputs that can be a much helpful solution to their desired customers.
How to Use ChatGPT?
Since its initial release, the company has seen a surge in users and the number of registered users crossed 1 million (that too in just 4 days). The company is likely to introduce paid plans in different phases. Currently, it is working on initial phases where its target is to grab attention and is free for all. Anyone can try out their services simply by setting up the account and by going through all the terms & conditions along with the disclaimer.
However, users are advised to use this wisely and not to rely on it as it might offer solutions that might not be suitable for everyone. You can also visit the official site to know more about ChatGPT – OpenAI/ChatGPT

Limitations of ChatGPT
The list of limitations is long when using ChatGPT, however, we have focused on providing concrete differences that can be fixed in the upcoming future. Have a look at some of the limitations below:
- No real-time output
- External support from any URL (for reference) is not allowed

- There are cases where ChatGPT was unable to answer basic riddles, have a look at the screenshot for the best reference
In most cases, it has been observed that ChatGPT is lagging behind and needs improvements. Till, that time, the company is targeting to work towards making their AI-based system more convenient.
How People are using ChatGPT?
It took 4 days for ChatGPT to hit a million user milestone which is comparatively high for many popular applications that we use today. For example, Instagram took near about 90 days to reach that milestone. The charm of this technology has forced people to try out things in different ways and the Internet is flooded with the things that people have been doing with this latest sensation. Let’s look at some of them and analyze what else could be done with ChatGPT:
- Coding: The days are not far away when technologies like this would change the meaning of programming and people have been enjoying working on different languages using this tool.
- Poetry: Many users have posted updates where they have shared their experiences of writing poets using ChatGPT
- Song Writing: Since this tool works with AI-model and is capable of generating texts, it can easily write a song in a matter of time.
- Game/Movie Suggestion: It is also being considered as a replacement for the Google search engine which is actually a big statement but the wonders it is doing are still unimaginable and based on users’ inputs, it can provide suggestions for food, movies, games, etc.
The real question by the end of this topic is – Can AI write blogs and replace Google or Human interactions? The answer is clearly NO, as of now because there are a lot of dependencies relying on human intelligence and this trending technology. Although this technology is a charm still the ratio of bugs and inaccurate answers is high in ChatGPT (Generative Pre-trained Transformer). On the other hand, Google works with a different mechanism and its metrics are based on websites. But the amount of fame that this technology has been getting is highly appreciable and we hope for brighter days in this technology.
