Chat GPT, is a tool developed by OpenAI (in which Elon Musk and Microsoft have invested) that has completely driven Twitter and the internet crazy when it was released.

Ultra simple to use, this chatbot is based on artificial intelligence and Reinforcment Learning of Human Feedback. It answers your questions quickly and in an ultra-detailed way. But beware, it is not without risks…

What are the strengths and weaknesses of ChatGPT? Is this chatbot safe? Here is everything you need to know about GPTChat.

Update : Let’s check the last version of GPT-4, OpenAI’s new nugget: between increased precision and technological competition

What is ChatGPT?

ChatGPT is a chatbot based on OpenAI’s GPT3 artificial intelligence model. It is designed to respond to user requests in a natural way, as a human would.

The robot responds almost instantly and can even understand complex questions. It is therefore the ideal tool for:

  • Performing research,
  • setting up an efficient support system for your customers,
  • writing a text,
  • or just having fun.

How does ChatGPT work?

The chatbot uses GPT3, a state-of-the-art linguistic model capable of generating contextually relevant answers, even for complex queries. The model has been trained on large amounts of words from books, websites and other sources and it uses the Reinforcment Learning from Human Feedback.

It’s actually quite simple:

  • the chatbot first reads the question submitted by the user,
  • It then processes it using natural language processing (NLP) techniques.
  • It then produces possible answers to the user’s request.
  • Finally GPT3 generates the most appropriate answer.

What are the advantages of using ChatGPT?

ChatGPT is much more comprehensive and beneficial than traditional chatbots because:

  • It is able to produce more natural and engaging conversations.
  • It responds ultra quickly.
  • It can understand complex questions and produce a detailed response.
  • It can be used in multiple languages.

It is able to produce more natural and engaging conversations than other chatbots

OpenAI’s GPT3 is really different from other AI language models because it has a large vocabulary database. The researchers behind the robot have given it billions of words from books and websites to ingest.

It therefore has an impressive level of language and can write answers that sound more human than those of chatbots using other language models.

It responds in an ultra-fast way

ChatGPT is able to respond in milliseconds thanks to OpenAI’s GPT3 language model. This makes it ideal for customer service chatbots, which need to respond quickly.

It can understand complex questions and write detailed answers

The bot is trained to understand complex questions. This makes it perfect for search chatbots, where users are looking for an ultra-precise answer.

Some people might therefore prefer it to Google to get an answer without having to search.

ChatGPT can be used in multiple languages.

The chat AI is available:

  • in French,
  • English,
  • German,
  • in Spanish
  • and in many other languages…

What are the disadvantages of using ChatGPT?

Despite its many advantages, ChatGPT does have some drawbacks:

  • It sometimes lacks precision.
  • It is not designed to understand jokes, sarcasm or metaphors.
  • It can have trouble keeping up with natural conversations and quickly adapting to changes in the topic of conversation.

But let’s look at this in more detail…

It sometimes lacks precision

The robot’s answers are not as accurate as the data it has been trained on.

This means that if its knowledge is limited, it won’t be able to go deeper into the content.

For example: if you ask him a topical question, he won’t be able to give you an appropriate answer since his knowledge base stops in 2021 and he can’t surf the web to find an answer. It will be the same if you ask him for an opinion, he will not be able to answer you.

It is not designed to understand jokes, sarcasm or metaphors

The language model used by ChatGPT has difficulty understanding complex forms of humor and irony.

This can lead to misunderstandings when the user tries to joke with the bot.

It may have difficulty following natural conversations and quickly adapting to changes in the topic of conversation

Since chatbots are designed to process language in a linear fashion. They therefore have difficulty understanding changes in context during a conversation.

ChatGPT may crash if you suddenly change the topic of the conversation. To help chatbots understand conversations better, it’s important to make sure you ask clear and concise questions.

What are the risks of ChatGPT?

Due to the automated nature of ChatGPT, it is important to be aware of the potential risks associated with its use.

  • The tool can sometimes generate offensive, objectionable or inappropriate content due to errors in the template or inadequate training data.
  • The text generated does not always contain accurate information. Therefore, it can be used to spread false information.
  • Some people may misuse it to imitate human handwriting or speech in a deceptive way to practice phishing or to create false identities.
  • Your personal data is not protected. Misuse of the tool can therefore lead to risks for your privacy and the security of your data. That’s why it’s important to make sure that appropriate authentication methods are used with the chatbot when entering such data.

How to use ChatGPT?

Using ChatGPT is simple and easy! Here’s how:

  1. Visit the platform or website where ChatGPT is available.
  2. Type in your question or topic of interest in the chat box. For example: “how to write a good story?”
  3. Press “Enter” or click on the “Send” button.
  4. ChatGPT will then generate a response.
  5. Read the response and, if necessary, ask follow-up questions or clarify your original query.

ChatGPT can also be used with Bing by following these simple steps:

  1. Open a web browser and navigate to the Bing search engine website.
  2. In the search bar, type “ChatGPT” followed by your query or topic of interest.
  3. Press “Enter” or click on the search icon.
  4. Scroll down the search results page until you see the ChatGPT chat box.
  5. Type your question or topic of interest into the chat box and press “Enter” or click on the “Send” button.
  6. Wait a few moments for ChatGPT to generate a response.
  7. Read the response and, if necessary, ask follow-up questions or clarify your original query.

ChatGPT: a summary…

In summary, ChatGPT has truly revolutionized the concept of chatbots. Whether it is for your customer service, for your research or for fun, it will be very useful.

  • ChatGPT technology can provide a clear and precise answer to a query. It also can write a text for you and even some computer code.
  • The artificial intelligence used by this chatbot is based on the OpenAI GPT-3 knowledge base.
  • The information contained in the text generated by the robot is sometimes erroneous or incomplete. Therefore, it should be approached with caution.
  • Some users may prefer the OpenAI chatbot to Google to get a quick answer.
  • ChatGPT is now available in Microsoft Bing.
