ChatGPT, from the company OpenAI, launched two months ago, took internet users by storm and, they didn’t take too long to realize that it is a significant change in the way we search for information.

In short, ChatGPT is a chatbot that analyses information previously collected on the Internet and generates a response that “sounds natural,” simulating a conversation.

How to use the viral AI text generator that has conquered the world?

It has quickly become the dominant example AI-generated content influence will have in the future, showing just how powerful these tools can be.

The basic version of ChatGPT is free to use. However, it isn’t free for OpenAI, which also has a more complete paid version.

It’s currently estimated that OpenAI spends about $3 million per month to keep running ChatGPT, which is about $100,000 per day. Beyond the cost of the servers themselves, some important information recently came out about what else has been done to train the language model against the production of offensive content.

What can you ask ChatGPT?

The ChatGPT website is easy and includes an area for results to fill in and a text box for users to type in requests for information. However, instead of starting with questions, OpenAI recommends entering a statement for the best possible outcome.

For example, entering “explain what a black hole is” will give a more detailed result with more paragraphs than “how is a black hole made?” even though both inquiries give fairly detailed results.

You also have the option of more specific requests for a dissertation with a specific number of paragraphs or a Wikipedia page. We got an extremely detailed result with the request “write a four-paragraph dissertation explaining Tolstoy’s War and Peace”.

Since its launch, people have been experimenting to find out everything the chatbot can and cannot do – and some of the results have been spectacular!

As good as it gets

However, understanding the types of prompts and follow-ups that ChatGPT responds well to requires some experimentation. Just as we learn to get the information we want from traditional search engines, it can take some time to get the best results from ChatGPT.

It all really depends on what you want to get. For starters, try using it to write a blog article, for example, or even blocks of code if you’re a programmer.

Nothing like trying it yourself! Even if you think ChatGPT is an amazing piece of technology or, instead, it will lead to the destruction of the Internet as we know it, it’s worth trying it out for yourself to see what it’s capable of.

In short, you can ask anything you want. OpenAI has safeguards in place to “build safe and beneficial artificial general intelligence.”
It means that questions that are hateful, sexist, racist, or discriminatory are off-limits to the chatbot.

ChatGPT writes Nick Cave-style music

Last month, for example, ChatGPT was used to write a song mimicking the style of musician Nick Cave.

“I am a sinner, I am a saint / I am the darkness, I am the light / I am the hunter, I am the prey / I am the devil, I am the savior”

ChatGPT-produced Nick Cave-style song

The singer, for his part, was not impressed at all! It wasn’t the first time Cave received a similar missive. “Dozens” of fans have been sending ChatGPT creations in the Australian artist’s style.

For Cave, this technology is not exciting: “I don’t have the same enthusiasm as they do for this technology,” he points out. “The technology is in its infancy, but it’s moving toward a utopian future or our destruction. Who can say? Judging by this song, the future doesn’t look good… The apocalypse is on its way. This song is horrible,” he points out.

Will ChatGPT replace Google?

Google promised that it would soon unveil its new feature, and now, Bard has finally emerged. The artificial intelligence that will help you with your research comes directly from the search giant.

Microsoft has an advantageous position here as it partnered early with OpenIA by integrating ChatGPT into the Bing and Edge search engines. Google is lagging behind in this field, which is why it has decided to unveil Bard, its proposal to counter OpenIA’s proposal.

From what the search giant has revealed, Bard aims to combine the breadth of world knowledge with the power, intelligence and creativity of Google’s big language models. It specifically uses a “lightweight model version of LaMDA” that “requires significantly less computing power, allowing it to scale to more users, enabling more feedback.”

Google thus reports that Bard may, for now, provide inaccurate or inadequate information. The testing phase intends to help Google improve the quality and speed of Bard.

Likewise, no details about how and when the public can try Bard have been announced.

It does not appear that ChatGPT will replace Google. However, AI chatbots like ChatGPT, certainly seem to be a critical aspect of research moving forward.

Microsoft leads in the use of this AI

The new AI-based version of Bing is already available for preview so that users can try out this format a limited number of times.

In short, this technology represents a new phase of search platforms, which, using Artificial Intelligence, will make searching and content creation easier for users.

What does the Future hold?

There is no doubt that the tech world is obsessed with ChatGPT right now.

ChatGPT-4, the model’s next integration will, supposedly, significantly improve the accuracy and capability of ChatGPT. There is no release date yet, but the New York Times reported that the model would be released sometime in the first quarter of 2023.

But the biggest development will be how ChatGPT will be integrated into other applications. Microsoft has reportedly made a multi-billion dollar investment in ChatGPT, which is already starting to pay off. The first integration was in Premium Teams, with some of the OpenAI features appearing to automate tasks and provide transcripts.

With ChatGPT now available in Bing, it’s only a matter of time before we see ChatGPT and the other OpenAI technologies involved in applications like PowerPoint and Word.

So if you think AI is a big deal now, imagine how it will be incorporated into the most common applications in a school or work environment.

We don’t know how or when this will start to be implemented, but it is certainly an important part of the future of ChatGPT.
