On November 30, when the world was enjoying the Football World Cup being held in Qatar, a language model tool named ChatGPT debuted in the world.
This new system can write such content that is very accurate and appears to be written by humans. This new tool has emerged as a threat to Google and the fact is that even Paul, the founder of Gmail, had said some time ago that this tool can destroy Google in two years.
At present, some shortcomings can be seen in this program, but with time this tool will become smarter. Those who like it are tying bridges of praise for it, but some people also have fear about this new tool.
If you read ChatGPT reviews on the internet, you will find the word ‘danger’ being mentioned again and again. Many people believe that this program is rapidly copying the human brain.
According to a recent article published in the American newspaper New York Times, the possibility of the impact of this program on learning, education, digital security, work and even democracy has been expressed.
The newspaper writes that what used to be an opinion of a person may turn out to be an argument written by an artificial robot.
What is ChatGPT?
ChatGPT is an AI language model developed by OpenAI, which is one of the world’s leading artificial intelligence research organizations. It is based on the GPT (Generative Pre-trained Transformer) architecture, which uses deep learning techniques to generate human-like text.
The main function of ChatGPT is to generate text based on the input it receives from users. This can include tasks such as answering questions, summarizing text, generating text in a specific style or tone, and even engaging in conversation with users.
ChatGPT has been trained on massive amounts of text data from the internet. Allowing it to generate high-quality text that is often indistinguishable from text written by humans. This has many potential applications, including improving customer service, generating news articles, and assisting with research and writing.
While ChatGPT has limitations and is not yet perfect. It represents a significant advancement in the field of natural language processing and has the potential to revolutionize the way we interact with technology.
ChatGPT is like a chatbot
It can give you written and almost accurate answers to many types of questions. This chatbot can also give advice on your personal problems.
The possibilities of creating content through this are immense.
For example, it can explain to you a complicated but delicious recipe and can also create a new version of the same recipe immediately. This can help you in finding a job. Can help you write poems, academic papers, and letters to special friends.
ChatGPT answers all your questions within seconds. For example, you ask this chatbot to write a poem in the style of Shakespeare on the subject of Artificial Intelligence.
In a few moments, you will get this poem written. There can be a debate on the level of poetry but not on the speed of writing it.
ChatGPT is available in almost 100 languages but it is most accurate in English.
This system was developed by a company named OpenAI in the year 2015 by Sam Altman and Elon Musk. Elon Musk separated from it in the year 2018.
ChatGPT had one million users within five days of its launch. Chatbot’s question and answer with users is used to improve this program.
OpenAI says that the use of this chatbot will be free for all and it will be available to all during testing and research.
With this statement of the company, people started speculating that in the future OpenAI will start charging money for using ChatGPT.
The company has also said that during testing and research, the software can sometimes give wrong and misleading information. The company has also said that the data history of the chatbot is limited to 2021 only.
A challenge to Google’s monopoly?
Many people are calling it a challenge to Google’s monopoly to gather information on the Internet, but this system is still making serious mistakes.
Like this chatbot was asked how many Indians have won Oscar awards so far? In response to this, the chatbot wrote – Bhanu Athaiya is the only Indian to win an Oscar till the year 2021.
But as you and we know that many more Indians have won Oscar award.
Such AI programs store a lot of data. ChatGPT’s focus is on responding with words and in a conversational style. This chatbot uses algorithms to guess the best way to write a sentence.
These are also called Large Language Models (LAM).
Professor Alvaro Machado Dias of São Paulo University is a neuroscientist. They tell that during the construction of such a chatbot, many simple questions are asked from it. For example, what is a cylinder?
Then the technician gives a detailed answer to this question.
“Even after this, if the chatbot’s answer doesn’t make sense, the correct answer is fed into the system. This is done with multiple questions.”
ChatGPT learns to speak exactly like humans.
Machado Dias says that this makes it special because it has become adept at understanding languages.
Engineers are working day and night to make it smart.
Professor Dias says, “Actually the engineers check the answers given by the algorithm and try to improve it, giving feedback to the program. The answer to your question is in a text format and it is quite serious .”
ChatGPT has also been trained to admit mistakes. This program corrects misconceptions and rejects irrelevant questions.
But a professor from the University of California made such a programming code through this system, according to which only white and Asian men can become good scientists.
OpenAI has acknowledged that the program may currently produce problematic responses to instructions given to it, and that data collected during testing will be used to further refine the system.
Is this a threat to creativity?
In jobs that depend on words and sentences, alarm bells have started ringing.
such as journalism. If the system improves further, then the jobs of journalists will be less and possibly a time may come when they will not be needed because every article will be written by chatbots.
ChatGPT’s ability to write code can raise questions on another sector. And that sector is – computer programming.
But the area which is of most concern is education.
Students in New York were so tempted to do their assignments through ChatGPT that ChatGPT was quickly banned from all schools and public devices across the city.
OpenAI is also trying to give a different identity to the content generated through its chatbot. There are algorithms that can fairly accurately tell whether a text was written by a chatbot or by a person.
Apart from copying from chatbots, and pasting in your homework and assignments, there are many other fears that are causing fear in the field of education.
For example, if a student is given a complex essay to write?
“I am worried about the mechanization of ideas. It is like turning the way we understand the world,” says Professor Dias of São Paulo University.
“This will be the most important event of mindset change in modern history. It is also worth noting that the human brain is shrinking rapidly. The reason for this is the development of technology.”
Half man and half machine
Martha Gabriele, author of the book Artificial Intelligence: From Zero to Metaverse and professor at the Pontifical Catholic University of Rio Grande do Sul, believes that we have to change fast with the changing times.
Martha Gabriel says, “The main difference is that now the answers don’t matter, the questions have become important. You have to know how to ask the right questions and for this your mind will have to think, exert.”
Yuri Lima, a researcher at the Federal University of Brazil, says that the new technology will turn students into cyborgs (half human and half machine).
“This new technology demands that teachers also learn to use it properly,” says Yuri Lima.
This is a matter of education and students. But there is another big concern. That is the creativity of humans and making content.
Within ten days of the system being available, a San Francisco designer had produced an illustrated children’s book in two days.
Apart from ChatGPT, the designer also took help from a program called MidJourney through which the photos were collected.
Professor Machado Dias says that creativity requires extraordinary talent, but things created with the help of algorithms will reduce the tendency of humans to be creative.
ChatGPT Is Dumber Than You Think?
As an AI language model, ChatGPT does not have a physical form and therefore cannot experience a “fall”. However, it is possible for ChatGPT to encounter issues or limitations when generating text based on the input it receives from users.
One potential issue that ChatGPT may encounter is a loop, where it repeatedly generates similar or identical text in response to the same input. This can happen if the input contains ambiguous or unclear information, or if the training data used to develop the model contains biases or inconsistencies.
To address this issue, developers can fine-tune the model on specific tasks or domains to improve its accuracy and reduce the likelihood of loops. Additionally, human supervision and intervention may be necessary in some cases to ensure that the generated text is accurate and appropriate.
It’s important to note that while ChatGPT is a powerful tool, it is not infallible and should be used with caution. As with any technology, it is important to be aware of its limitations and potential biases, and to use it in a responsible and ethical manner.
More on ChatGPT-4
GPT-4 is the latest milestone in OpenAI’s effort in scaling up deep learning.
GPT-4 was trained on Microsoft Azure AI supercomputers. Azure’s AI-optimized infrastructure also allows us to deliver GPT-4 to users around the world.
GPT-4 still has many known limitations that we are working to address, such as social biases, hallucinations, and adversarial prompts. We encourage and facilitate transparency, user education, and wider AI literacy as society adopts these models. We also aim to expand the avenues of input people have in shaping our models.
GPT-4 is available on ChatGPT Plus and as an API for developers to build applications and services.
