After the success of DALL-E, its artificial intelligence image generator, the American company OpenAI continues to be in the spotlight by unveiling ChatGPT, a chatbot capable of answering your questions and starting a real conversation. This could in particular be a serious competitor of Google in the future, since the tool responds to requests from Internet users.
ChatGPT, the chatbot that answers your questions
ChatGPT is based on GPT-3.5, OpenAI’s new natural language generation technology. It is a model similar to InstructGPT, trained to follow an instruction in a guide and then provide a detailed response.
ChatGPT is able to:
- Answer follow-up questions
- Acknowledge your mistakes
- Challenging incorrect premises,
- Reject inappropriate requests.
In the example below: “ChatGPT initially declines to answer a question that may relate to illegal activities, but responds after the user clarifies their intent. » explains OpenAI in its blog post.
How to test the ChatGPT chatbot?
OpenAI says that during its research period, using ChatGPT is free. The objective is to obtain a lot of feedback from users, and to better understand the strengths and weaknesses of their AI chatbot in order to be able to subsequently perform the necessary optimizations.
To test ChatGPT:
- Go to the dedicated page on OpenAI,
- Log in with your email address to access the interface,
- Start the conversation with ChatGPT. Good discussion!
To know: you may encounter problems connecting to ChatGPT, caused by the current high traffic on the OpenAI site.
ChatGPT is not going unnoticed on Twitter…
Many users started tweeting about #ChatGPT over the weekend, sharing their own tests of OpenAI’s new bot. Some are fascinated or amused while others worry about it. Elon Musk also gave his opinion on ChatGPT, which is not surprising when you consider that he participated in the founding of OpenAI. In a tweethe stated in particular: “ChatGPT is scary. We are not far from a dangerously strong AI. »
Ok don’t bother buying children’s books anymore 😯. I just asked my son what he wanted for a story, and the AI tells him. #ChatGPT
