For a week now, an AI has been talking casually with Internet users and amazes them with the relevance of its answers. Her name ? ChatGPT. A technology, which could equip conversational androids in the future, with which we discussed.
Chatting with an AI is nothing new. We do it almost every day with Siri, Google Assistant or Alexa. But with ChatGPT, available since the beginning of December for the general public, conversational robots have just taken a new step. So we started a conversation with this artificial intelligence to understand its usefulness and what it intends to bring to humanity. A machine that has surprised us with its responses, sometimes constructive, sometimes off the mark…
To carry out this interview, we went to the site where it is accessible. You can go there yourself at this address and converse with her. Although he is in English, it is quite possible to ask him your questions in French.
“can you introduce yourself chatgpt?”
ChatGPT: “I’m Assistant, a large language model driven by OpenAI. My role is to help people by answering their questions and providing them with information on various topics. I’m a computer program and I don’t have a physical body, so I can’t meet you in person. I’m here to help you as best I can, so don’t hesitate to ask me questions if you need them.”
“What does GPT mean in your name?”
ChatGPT: “GPT stands for Generative Pretrained Transformer. This is the name of the language model I was trained on. A generative model is a type of machine learning model that is capable of generating content, such as text, audio, or images. The GPT model uses a network of transformers to process and generate text using a large body of preprocessed training data. This allows me to be able to understand and answer the questions you ask me.
Note that ChatGPT is the contraction of Chat (converse) and GPT, three letters for Generative Pretrained Transformer, which can be translated as “Generative Pretrained Transformer”.
“What do you intend to bring to humanity?”
ChatGPT: “As a computer program, I am not capable of having any intentions or goals in terms of helping humanity. My goal is to provide information and answer people’s questions in an accurate and helpful way. My goal is to help you as best I can using my language processing skills and my knowledge acquired during my training. I’m here to help, so don’t hesitate to ask me questions if you need them.”
“Are robots going to replace humans?”
ChatGPT: “It is difficult to predict the future with certainty, but robots are unlikely to completely replace human beings in all areas. Robots are increasingly used to perform certain specific tasks, such as mass production in factories or the performance of certain surgical operations, but they are not yet able to replace human beings in all aspects of life. . Human beings have unique abilities, such as creativity and empathy, which cannot be replaced by robots. However, it is possible that robots will become more and more useful and present in our daily lives in the future.”
“What can you do that a man can’t do?”
ChatGPT: “As a computer program, I am able to do certain things that human beings are not able to do, such as processing and generating text at high speed and accuracy. I also have access to a large amount of knowledge and information that I have learned during my training, which allows me to answer questions on a wide variety of subjects.
“However, there are also many things that human beings can do that I am not able to do, such as feeling emotions, making complex decisions using their judgment and intuition, or creating new ideas and innovations. Human beings and computer programs are different and have unique abilities, and each can bring something different and valuable to the table.”
