What is chat GPT?
It is a terminology that comes from the union of “chat“, a word commonly used to refer to an online conversation and “GPT“, which is the acronym for “Generative Pre-Training Transformer”
In this case, “chat GPT” refers to an artificial intelligence technology developed by OpenAi, capable of generating consistent and contextually relevant texts that simulates interactions between human beings.
Chat GPT, based on the GPT language model, was used to create a variety of applications, from virtual assistants to text writing tools; The system has become famous as it can generate texts using a more natural language.
It is important to mention that while chat GPT can generate answers that seem to come from a human, the system only provides answers using probability to predict the next word in a sequence based on the information with which this AI was trained.
Practical Applications of Chat GPT
Chat GPT has become a valuable tool in a variety of applications that extend beyond simple chat conversations.
For example, we can see Chat GPT uses in the following sectors:
- Writing Assistants: Chat GPT can provide writing suggestions or even generate complete content. This can include emails, blog articles, ads and more.
- Automated Customer Service: GPT-powered chatbots can interact with customers, solve basic queries, and provide immediate answers, which releases time for humans to deal with more complex tasks. In addition, these chatbots will be available 24/7, thus improving the customer experience.
- Content Creation: In marketing and advertising, Chat GPT can help generate creative campaign ideas, write advertising copy, and even create content for social media posts.
- Education and Training: Chat GPT can be used as an educational tool, providing answers to students’ questions or even generating study content.
- Game development: In video game development, Chat GPT can be used to generate dialogues for non-playable characters (NPC), creating richer and more realistic interactions for players.
The possibilities for using Chat GPT are broad and continue to expand as new technological advances arise.
This makes it a valuable tool for companies that want to automate certain tasks and for people seeking intelligent assistance in text writing and content generation.
Chat GPT and its limitations
Although its advanced ability to generate coherent and contextually relevant text, Chat GPT has several important limitations:
- Incorrect Information Generation: As Chat GPT generates answers based on training with large amounts of text and doesn’t have access to sources of information in real time or a “understanding” of the world as human beings, sometimes it can generate incorrect or outdated information.
- Lack of understanding questions in context: Although Chat GPT is able to generate contextually coherent answers, it doesn’t have a real understanding of the world or the ability to reason in the same way as a human. This means that it may have difficulty answering questions that require a deep understanding of the context or an abstract capacity for reasoning.
- Ethical and Safety issues: As Chat GPT is an AI, it can be used to generate offensive, misleading or harmful content. OpenAi has implemented several safeguards to avoid these uses, but it can’t completely guarantee that the chat GPT is not misused or generates inappropriate content.
- Verbal and repetitive content generation: Sometimes Chat GPT can generate longer than necessary answers and end up repeating words and phrases, especially when requested to generate longer texts.
- BIES IN TRAINING DATA: Like any AI model, Chat GPT can reflect and perpetuate the biases present in the data with which it was trained. This can result in text generation that reflects stereotypes or prejudice.
These limitations underline the importance of using chat GPT with caution and reviewing the generated content.
