Want to learn about OpenAI and how ChatGPT may impact education and the world of work? Read a bit here, check out my recent podcast and the latest article on Getting Smart
Recently there has been a lot of discussion and concern about Chat GPT. For educators everywhere, the concern is heightened because of the capabilities of this technology. If you are just starting to learn about what it is, let me explain.
Chat GPT is a new AI chatbot basically, that has been built and is an upgrade from GPT3. You can learn more about GPT3 from this post I helped research in 2020. GPT stands for Generative Pre-trained Transformer. This AI chat has been released by Open AI, and it is artificial intelligence that is able to respond to prompts instantly and basically engage in what feels like a human conversation that is full of information. It uses natural language processing (NLP), which enables it to understand the questions from humans and to be able to generate responses that mimic a human conversation. It is able to understand the context of conversations and can answer within seconds of being asked about anything ranging from how to bake a cake to something very complex.
It is a language model, and it was released fully on November 30th. Within one week only, it had more than 1 million users trying to explore exactly what it does. This is the latest chatbot from open AI that had its launch back in 2015, and it has tremendous capabilities. It simulates a chat similar to what you might get from a chatbot when using an online website for example. But the difference is that it provides responses that mimic what you might find in a normal human conversation because it has been trained through machine learning and artificial
Chat GPT will take the input, the prompt, or the question, and then it will generate a response based on what has been asked using algorithms. The use of deep learning algorithms enables it to understand the context and the meaning behind the question and then it uses this to create its response in a conversational manner.
Questions are asked about its security and based on what has been shared, it is safe and all data that has been generated by Chat GPT is encrypted and is in compliance with regulations. It has also undergone a tremendous amount of testing before it was launched for more widespread use by the public.
I will be sharing more information in my blog but for now, I just decided to open with this and record a podcast episode about ChatGPT and my experience, some concerns, and some benefits that could come from it.
