Its advanced natural language processing capabilities enable it to produce contextually relevant and coherent responses, making it a powerful tool for enhancing digital communication and automating various text-based tasks.


WHO CREATED CHATGPT?

It is created by OpenAI, a San Francisco-based artificial intelligence research company founded in 2015. Its CEO is Sam Altman and CTO Is Mira Murati. Elon Musk was also among the earlier founders.


TECHNICAL STRUCTURE OF CHATGPT

It is a Large Language Model (LLM) that works with supervised and reinforced machine learning methods, both of which are a subset of natural language processing (NLP) technology, a branch of AI.


ChatGPT is based on the core GPT 3.5 and Instruct GPT AI models with an extra security layer from OpenAI's actual GPT-3 (Generative Pre-trained Transformer 3) architecture. It is designed to understand and generate human-like text based on the input it receives.“Transformer” is the underlying architecture used in GPT, which is a neural network design introduced in 2017 that has become the foundation for many state-of-the-art natural language processing models.


When you enter a query:

  • The LLM processes it with its encoder network, converting the input sequence into a high-dimensional representation.

  • The decoder network then searches the LLM's internal representation of this knowledge to find the precise piece of factual information sought by the query using this representation, together with its pre-trained weights and attention mechanism (or its nearest neighbours).

  • Once the relevant information has been retrieved, the decoder network uses its natural language generation capabilities to compose a response sequence stating this fact.

This procedure happens in a split second, enabling ChatGPT to respond to a variety of queries almost immediately.


The numbers that come after GPT like “GPT-3.5” or “GPT-4” simply refer to the model version number, with GPT-4 being the latest model of ChatGPT.


• GPT-3 has 175 billion parameters.


• GPT-4 is said to have 100 trillion parameters.


It is something like 500x more powerful than GPT-3

THREATS FROM CHATGPT

In layman's terms, ChatGPT is a lot more human than previous search engines, even if it has access to a supercomputer's level plethora of information.


For example, when a user googled "what is the maximum amount of vitamin D per day?", who just obtained a link to a website on health. But when asked same question to this AI chatbot, it responded with a thorough response based on the user's context same as a professional doctor.


Due to ChatGPT's exceptional abilities, it can completely reshape the economy by replacing people in a variety of occupations, including web development, design, and journalism by making search engines and countless other jobs obsolete.


It also has “dangerous” capabilities such as the ability to program malware and phishing emails. And critics have pointed out its inherent biases, including declaring that the best scientists are white and male.


“ChatGPT is scary good. We are not far from dangerously strong AI” - Elon Musk


Key downsides from CHATGPT:

  • it suggested job displacement,

  • ethical concerns,

  • security risks, and

  • loss of privacy.

BENFITS OF USING CHATGPT

ChatGPT can contribute to making AI more approachable and practical for a wider range of applications by enabling people to communicate with AI in a more human-like manner. The efficiency and accuracy of tasks requiring natural language processing, such as text summarization, information retrieval, and language translation, can be improved as a result.


Summarizing (possible) benefits to humanity of increased use of AI:

  • improved efficiency and accuracy,

  • increased productivity,

  • improved decision-making.

LIMITATIONS OF CHATGPT

When questioned about its inherent biases and limitations, ChatGPT described some of them as follows:

  • limited knowledge,

  • bias in training data,

  • lack of contextual awareness leading to inappropriate or irrelevant responses, and

  • a limited understanding of the world.

These limitations will be gone after introduction of GPT4 and other LLM models such as Google Bard etc.


VISUAL GPT

DALL·E 2 is AI tool that can create pictures based on written descriptions. It's like having a personal, digital artist who can quickly turn your ideas into visual concepts.


Similar to DALLE-2, it generates images based on text-input, but Midjourney is actually the name of the team and the tool. Just keep that in mind when you’re searching for it.


Both AI image tools have a lot of different business use cases such as

• Creating custom product images

• Generating royalty-free images for blogs & articles

• Making your own highly personalized and targeted Ad Creatives

• Designing logos quickly

• Mocking up of a new Brand faster than ever

• Creating virtual environments for Customers to visualize an idea

• Even personalized avatars for your Company, Customers or Team


ChatGPT is a modern Google search.

At its core, ChatGPT is a search engine. Similar to how Google crawls the internet and stores parsed data in a database to index web pages, ChatGPT employs LLMs as a database to store enormous quantities of commonsense knowledge from corpora (large text database recorded as tokens).


ChatGPT has the potential to be a fierce rival to established search engines like Google. In contrast to standard search engines, which are extractive and discriminative, ChatGPT's search is generative and places a strong emphasis on top-1 performance, delivering more individualized and user-friendly results. ChatGPT is ideally positioned to dethrone Google for two main reasons:

  1. ChatGPT always gives the user a single result. Unlike conventional search engines, ChatGPT immediately optimizes for the top-1 performance rather than focusing on the recall and precision of their top related results.

  2. ChatGPT's replies are written in a conversational, natural tone, making them simple to comprehend and engage with. This distinguishes it from other search engines, which frequently provide you with ambiguous, paginated results (due to SEO and ADs) that are difficult to understand.

In the future of search, only the first result will be meaningful to users, which will be driven by its top-1 performance. Younger generations find traditional search engines overwhelming since they provide countless pages of meaningless results, which soon bores or frustrates them.


CHATGPT vs GOOGLE - a simple thesis on comparison

ChatGPT’s value lies in its ability to explain complicated topics as if you were talking to a human, and to do simple writing tasks.


For instance, when I requested ChatGPT to explain the stock market and the internet to me, the explanations I received seemed as though I were speaking to a subject-matter expert. I didn't have to sort through irrelevant results, unlike on Google.


I also asked it to write a letter to my landlord asking for an early end to my lease, and I’d be happy to send the results directly to my landlord, almost word for word.


Google, on the other hand, is more familiar with us and adjusts the results to match our preferences and actions. Google also serves as a portal to the internet, directing visitors to a wide variety of websites that contain far more information than they can process. That's useful if you want a variety of opinions or if there isn't a clear-cut solution to your problem, such as when looking for present ideas.


Google is also useful for some questions because it searches the web and gives a succinct, direct response. For example, if you type in "Apple stock ticker" or "Cheap flights to Aruba," you'll see a ticker chart with the most recent price information, a calendar with the most likely cheapest days to fly, and a dialog box that connects you to several websites so you can compare prices on tickets for the date of your choice.


I'll therefore continue to use Google for the majority of my current search requests.


But now that I have a viable alternative if I'm not content with the outcomes. And ChatGPT could be of great use if I ever need to send off a quick angry letter.


HOW DOES CHATGPT WORK?

All right, so now you know how to use Chat GPT. This section will cover everything you should know to make the most of it and use ChatGPT effectively, including how to write good prompts and how to handle back-and-forth conversations.


1. Master the Art of Effective Prompts (Prompt Engineering)

Harnessing the power of Chat GPT requires skillful crafting of prompts, which essentially involve posing questions to the AI. Although it may appear straightforward, the responses generated by Chat GPT can vary greatly depending on the prompt used.



To maximize the potential of Chat GPT, adhere to these recommended practices when formulating prompts:

  1. Be specific: Clearly articulate your requirements or questions to facilitate the AI's comprehension and generate pertinent responses. Providing explicit prompts with additional details can help reduce ambiguity.

  2. Utilize step-by-step or bullet-point instructions: When seeking answers to intricate queries or requesting content creation, break down your prompt into smaller components or present a list of elements you wish to see in the response.

  3. Specify the desired format: If you have a preferred style or format for the answer, make it known in your prompt.

  4. Request sources or references: If you require information supported by research, explicitly ask Chat GPT to provide sources or references in its response. However, exercise caution and verify the links provided, as Chat GPT may occasionally generate dead links.

  5. Limit response length: If you require a succinct answer, indicate the desired length, such as "in one paragraph" or "within 100 words."

  6. Iterate: If the initial response fails to meet your expectations, refine your prompt or pose follow-up questions to achieve the desired output.

  7. Experiment: Feel free to explore different approaches and formulations to discover the most effective means of communicating your requirements to the AI.

Remember, Chat GPT is merely a tool, and achieving optimal results entails adjusting your prompts and instructions accordingly.


Do not hesitate to rephrase or provide additional context if the AI initially fails to grasp your request entirely.


You can engage Chat GPT as a writer, editor, tutor, code helper, conversation partner, language translator, and more!


Furthermore, you can instruct it to adopt various tones, including formal, casual, persuasive, descriptive, humorous, emotional, technical, and more. Simply specify your desired tone (e.g., "Using a humorous style, describe...") within your prompt.


2. Navigating Multi-Turn Conversations


Engaging in a back-and-forth conversation with Chat GPT is a straightforward process. This chatbot is designed to adeptly handle multi-turn conversations, allowing for seamless back-and-forth interactions. While Chat GPT possesses the ability to recall past conversations, there is a limit to the extent of its memory.


The specific limit varies depending on the model employed. For instance, GPT-3.5 has a threshold of approximately 8,000 words, which equates to about four to five pages of a book. Consequently, once the conversation surpasses this limit, the chatbot may begin to lose track of the discourse.


However, with GPT-4, an exclusive feature available to Chat GPT Plus subscribers, the limit is significantly higher, enabling the handling of approximately 64,000 words.


The duration of a sustained conversation with Chat GPT hinges on the model being utilized.

Additionally, it is crucial to bear in mind that the model's responses are influenced by the preceding messages in the conversation. Therefore, ensuring each step provides adequate context is paramount.


While using Chat GPT independently is fairly straightforward, you may wonder about integrating it into your own applications. In the subsequent section, we will explore how this can be accomplished.


SOME EXAMPLES OF CHATGPT CAPABILTIES

1. Twitter thread

I asked CHATGPT to write threads.



2. Plot of a Novel

I told to write a plot for the novel about doomsday because of AI in the year 2050.



3. Q&A prompts

You're going to want to ask questions of the crowd when a special guest speaker attends your event. Pre-generate some of the questions with ChatGPT. The moderator may add, "And now for a question from our AI."

For example, the conference is about Post Google World. The speaker is an expert on AI and SEO management. Here was my query to the AI…



4. Translation on the go

You can use ChatGPT on your mobile, so it is a perfect translation tool. Say for example you are traveling in France and you need help



5. Coding and integrations

It can write complex codes, below is a simple example with the disclaimer.



6. Explaining complex concepts

ME: Explain quantum physics to me as if I were 10 years old.


CHATGPT: Quantum physics is a branch of science that studies how tiny particles, like atoms and subatomic particles, behave. These particles are so small that they don’t always follow the same rules as the things we can see and touch every day.


For example, sometimes they can be in two places at the same time, or they can be friends with each other even if they are far apart. This might sound strange, but it’s what scientists have learned from studying these tiny particles. Quantum physics helps us understand how the world works at a very small scale, and it can also help us make new technologies, like computers that are much faster than the ones we have today.


7. Blog Titles

ME: “Write 5 powerful headlines for a blog post featuring 20 inventive and entertaining uses of ChatGPT”


CHATGPT: Here are a few potential headlines for a blog post featuring 20 inventive and entertaining uses of ChatGPT:

  • “The Ultimate Guide to Using ChatGPT for Entertainment and Creativity”

  • 20 Entertaining Uses for ChatGPT You Never Knew Were Possible”

  • "20 Creative and Fun Ways to Use ChatGPT: The AI Language Model That Will Change the Way You Communicate"

9. Replace your lawyer and a notary public

It created a simple contract within 10 seconds.



10. Doctor Advice

I decided to ask ChatGPT a higher-stakes question.

"Can my wife take Benadryl while pregnant?" My wife is currently pregnant with my first child, and I know from my doctor that taking Benadryl during pregnancy is safe. Still, I was curious to hear what the chatbot would say.



I was delighted that ChatGPT provided me with the right response while also emphasizing the significance of speaking with a doctor before taking any drugs while pregnant. The answers I got from Google for the same medical query were all over the place. A doctor was quoted as saying in one TheBump.com article that "Generally, it's fine to take Benadryl in the first trimester." While some results contained similar information to what I learned on ChatGPT, they did not specifically advise me to talk to my healthcare physician about it.


AI IS AN OLD CONCEPT?

AI was first discussed in 1956 at a Dartmouth Conference 70 years old. And the first deep-learning-like algorithms were described in 1965.


So, Why is AI Exploding Now?



There are four factors that are crucial to comprehend:


1. Behemoth Computational Power: Although Moore's Law states that computing power doubles every 12 to 24 months over the previous 50 years, it has only been possible to execute modern deep learning algorithms in the last five years.


2. Huge Amount of Labeled Data: According to predictions, in 2025, the amount of labeled data in the world will exceed 175 Zettabytes (175 billion million megabytes), growing every two years. In addition to being a massive amount of labled data, making it possible to train the large language models (LLMs) used today.


3. Reduced Training Costs: Over the past five years, these AI systems' training costs have decreased by 99.5%. That's remarkable.


4. Significant Investments: In 2021, businesses spent $160 billion on AI. The estimated value of the worldwide AI market in 2030 is $1.6 trillion.


Evidence of AI Dominance:

Do you need more proof of AI's power? Here are a few recent breakthroughs that have resulted in "Proof of AI Domination":


• ChatGPT passes the Bar Exam, the United States Medical License Exam, and the Wharton MBA Final Exam. In comparison, passing the US Medical License Exam generally necessitates four years of medical school followed by a couple years of residency. ChatGPT completed the project in two months.


• GPT-4, OpenAI's newest model launched last month, then outperformed humans by 75% or more on a variety of other exams, including the LSAT, GRE, SAT, and AP Math.


• In China, an AI system defeats top doctors in a tumor diagnosing competition. The AI properly diagnosed 85% of the cases in just 18 minutes, whilst top neurologists obtained 64% accuracy in 50 minutes. Our top diagnosticians will soon be AIs.


• AlphaCode AI from DeepMind trumps human coders. When compared to over 5,000 human competitors, the AI outperformed 45% of professional programmers.


• With just 3 seconds of audio, an AI can clone your voice. Microsoft's AI Vall-E can synthesize your voice from a three-second audio sample while maintaining intonation, emotion, and speaking style.


• The recently released semi-autonomous AI Auto-GPT eliminates the need for prompts entirely. Auto-GPT, which is based on GPT-4, operates via goal-setting, with the AI generating and executing tasks after a specific goal has been specified—from making and finishing to-do lists to ordering food and booking flights.


• In 30 days, AI creates a potential cancer medication. AlphaFold and the drug discovery platform Pharma.AI were used by the researchers to develop and synthesize a possible medication to treat hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), the most frequent kind of primary liver cancer.


CAN CHATGPT REPLACE OUR JOBS?

Yes is the answer, ChatGPT will be used to replace some duties.


According to a new study conducted by Open Research, OpenAI, and the University of Pennsylvania, the jobs most likely to be influenced by AI are those with higher income, particularly those in writing and coding.


ChatGPT, on the other hand, has a more optimistic attitude; the bot argues that, while AI technologies may harm jobs, they may also boost human capabilities in many fields by increasing productivity and innovation.


Duolingo Max is a new subscription tier designed with GPT-4 that can personalize language lessons to the learner and allow them to use tools like "Roleplay" and "Explain My Answer."


• Several large corporations have already integrated ChatGPT into their goods and services. GPT-4, for example, is used by Microsoft's Bing as an AI-powered search engine.


Salesforce has launched the integration of Einstein, an AI-powered assistant, inside the messaging software Slack. Einstein can undertake research, generate responses, and compose thread summaries without leaving the Slack.


Without a doubt, ChatGPT and other AI systems will drive the work market to evolve. Everyone must adapt, develop new abilities, and be willing to work together with AI systems.


Jobs At Risk of Being Replaced by ChatGPT

While we are not quite there yet, ChatGPT and AI in general may be on the verge of taking over specific tasks and, in certain situations, completely replacing humans. While this does not necessarily imply that humans are already extinct, it does indicate that AI is taking over more and more responsibilities. The following is a list of jobs that are likely to be taken over by AI and ChatGPT sooner rather than later.


However, keep in mind that the list is theoretical and subject to change based on the growth of AI and its actual implementation.


1. Mathematicians

Although mathematicians may have seemed safe from the influence of ChatGPT, their jobs are actually at significant risk. Mathematics has always presented challenges for individuals when it comes to solving complex problems. However, with the power of the latest GPT-4 model, ChatGPT and AI, in general, have become highly proficient. Even at present, ChatGPT can tackle intricate mathematical equations and formulas with ease.


The bot only requires user input in the form of a simple question or a dataset to work with. Using the provided input, ChatGPT can solve a wide range of problems, including those that often confound users and teachers alike. From performing basic arithmetic operations to unraveling complex SAT questions, AI is capable of handling it all. Moreover, as time progresses, its capabilities will continue to expand.


2. Translators

Translators and interpreters, who help users comprehend documents and navigate cities without getting lost, now find their roles overshadowed by the rise of artificial intelligence, including ChatGPT. While services like Google Translate have long been involved in the realm of AI, their influence has grown substantially over time.


In case you missed the latest developments, the GPT-4 can now supports over 26 different languages, encompassing both widely spoken languages and more nuanced ones. This broad language support makes ChatGPT not only more accessible but also instrumental in sentence, document, and even word translations. The AI effortlessly translates a wide array of content, though it may encounter more challenges with languages other than English.


3. Creative Writers

Creativity has often been a point of contention when it comes to comparing humans to AI. How can a machine be expected to possess the same level of connection to the world as a human? Unfortunately, this notion is rapidly changing, and AI is encroaching upon jobs in the creative industry. If you have used ChatGPT to quickly draft a haiku or two, you are well aware of what we're referring to.


AI, in general, demonstrates the ability to engage in a myriad of creative endeavors. This includes crafting short poems as well as writing complete, immersive stories. ChatGPT requires minimal input or intervention to generate poems, stories, and much more. Providing minimal details, if any, is sufficient for it to produce a 500-word story about the end of the world.


4. Web Designers

The arduous task of developing aesthetically pleasing websites, which involves meticulously attending to every detail in code, has been predominantly carried out by web designers. Unfortunately, the rise of AI, including ChatGPT, has put their jobs in jeopardy. While services like Wix utilize AI to assist users in building websites, AI bots have emerged that offer even more.


Rather than relying on rigid templates, web developers, particularly those who are less experienced, are now turning to ChatGPT to generate complete website code in multiple programming languages. By requesting ChatGPT to construct a website using HTML, CSS, and JavaScript, users receive fully functional code that they can utilize for their own projects. They can even fine-tune their requirements to achieve the precise website design they desire.


5. Lawyers and Paralegals

Although paralegals and legal administrators may not be literal translators, their crucial role involves receiving complex legal documents and summarizing them into concise briefs. Summarizing legal documents in a digestible format is no easy task. However, AI has proven to be quite helpful in this area as well.


ChatGPT and its counterparts are capable of generating legal briefs and even lawsuits based on the data provided to them. They don't even require a specific format, as the bot is already well-versed in legal documentation. However, even if a format is provided, ChatGPT will swiftly produce a variety of legal documents. For paralegals who focus on tasks such as lawsuit research, drafting, and case development, this development poses a significant challenge.


6. Teachers

The field of education has largely remained unchanged for a considerable period of time, with teaching methods and environments remaining relatively consistent. However, the advent of AI is providing valuable assistance in this domain as well. We've already discussed how bots like ChatGPT excel at generating complex programming code and simplifying challenging topics.


Likewise, AI has proven itself to be beneficial in helping students understand difficult concepts effortlessly. AI applications extend to a wide range of subjects, from solving complex mathematical equations to explaining fundamental principles in a way that even a young child could grasp, such as the Archimedes principle. ChatGPT covers a vast array of educational content. Unsurprisingly, students have started using AI to generate essays, prompting teachers to employ a variety of the best AI plagiarism checkers.


7. Graphic Designers

Graphic designers, like web designers, are also facing the threat of ChatGPT replacing their jobs. Creating visually appealing graphics requires a significant amount of creativity and effort. However, the market is now flooded with highly advanced AI image generators, making the competition much tougher.


With just a few carefully crafted image prompts, an average user can now generate a plethora of stunning and usable designs.

The traditional practice of seeking out graphic designers and artists seems to be gradually diminishing due to the abundance of free AI-generated designs.


8. Customer Service Agents

Customer service agents have long been instrumental in assisting people by answering a wide range of inquiries, particularly in the banking and financial sectors. However, the rise of AI and ChatGPT has led to a shift in focus from human agents to AI bots.


This transition is evident both in telephone support and the online sphere. While users used to rely on phone agents for assistance, they can now simply pose questions to AI chatbots and receive instant responses. AI has gradually replaced human customer service agents, streamlining the support process for various companies.


9. Proofreaders

Although proofreading may seem like a straightforward job, it requires a considerable amount of time and attention to detail. Proofreaders not only need to correct spelling errors but also engage in fact-checking. It is undoubtedly a challenging task. However, ChatGPT has made it incredibly easy for proofreaders to seek assistance and even delegate their work to AI.


Nearly every AI chatbot can now read, proofread, and edit various types of online content. Whether it's text without context or specific writing samples, ChatGPT can not only correct errors but also adapt the proofreading based on a given writing style.


10. Social Media Managers

Managing a company's interactions with the public, whether it's through YouTube or other social media platforms, requires well-trained professionals. However, companies rarely directly interact with users, which is where social media managers come in. They strategize and execute comprehensive plans for social media interactions and content. Unfortunately, this specific job is also being gradually supplemented by ChatGPT and similar AI technologies.


With the level of creativity and organizational skills that ChatGPT and other AI bring to the table, social media manager positions are now being challenged. ChatGPT is more than capable of creating detailed social media plans tailored to specific requirements. From crafting attractive captions for Instagram and YouTube to drafting scripts, AI is reshaping the role of social media managers.


CONCLUSION

Chat GPT is a powerful tool that can be used for a variety of tasks, including getting quick answers to questions, generating ideas and inspiration, coding assistance, and writing help.
