Already a month after the appearance of ChatGPT, it became clear that it can increase the efficiency of workers, probably in any industry. The possibilities of its use are almost endless. From our article, you will learn how GPT 3 bot works, whether it can replace the Google search engine and write an essay no worse than a person.
What is GPT-3 and ChatGPT?
GPT-3 (Generative Pre-trained Transformer 3) is a third-generation natural language processing algorithm created by the OpenAI Research Lab. This language model today continues to hold the status of the largest and most developed in the world. From a technical standpoint, GPT architecture is a transformer. According to the developers, it can be used to solve almost any problem, mainly in English.
ChatGPT is an AI-based chatbot, a product of the same OpenAI. The deep learning chatbot is based on another language model – GPT-3.5 (an upgraded version of GPT-3). It can work in dialog mode and supports natural language queries. Specialists used GPT machine learning, as well as training with a mentor and with reinforcement.
The launch of GPT 3 chatbot took place on November 30, 2022. A wide range of its capabilities immediately attracted the attention of users. It turned out that it can write code instead of a programmer, create texts instead of a copywriter, and even translate into different languages, talk with a person, answering questions, considering the context of the dialogue. True, the factual accuracy of GPT-3 bot has already been criticized.
How Does ChatGPT Work?
The scheme of operation of the novelty from OpenAI is simple: the user enters a question, to which the GPT3 chatbot gives a very meaningful answer. During the conversation, it memorizes the entire dialogue, using previous questions and own answers to form next blocks of text.
Let's take a closer look at how GPT-3 chatbot actually works. The step-by-step process looks like this:
- Create a request. The user enters text in the ChatGPT interface. It may contain a question, a request for necessary information, or some kind of statement on a free topic.
- Request analysis. ChatGPT parses the text entered and proceeds to generate a response using machine learning algorithms.
- Text generation. The user receives a response in text form.
- Clarification or new request. Having received a response, the user can enter another text containing a request to clarify some points, or write a new request. The system will analyze this and give an answer again. This process will continue in this sequence until the end of the GPT-3 conversation.
ChatGPT is not connected to the Internet and, unfortunately, often makes inaccuracies in the answers, gives erroneous judgments. Therefore, it is significant to carefully check all the information received from the chatbot before using it for any serious tasks, for example, for posting on a website or media resources.
Is ChatGPT Going to Replace Google?
OpenAI is now being called by some as a potential Google killer. But really: why waste time painstakingly fishing for the necessary information in a search engine, if ChatGPT gives a ready-made answer in a few seconds? And yet, the likelihood that ChatGPT or any other machine learning chatbots will be able to replace Google in the next five years is very low. Among the main reasons are the following:
- ChatGPT is primarily a language model. Its main purpose is to generate text that is almost indistinguishable from human writing. It does not have functionality that would allow it to compete with the Google search engine.
- Google is not only a search engine. Google LLC is a multinational company, one of the giants of the technology industry. It is engaged in the development of Internet services (in particular cloud computing and search), as well as hardware and software.
Machine learning bots and language models are limited. Chatbots and
neural network language models, which use of artificial intelligence,
have made significant progress in the past few years. And yet, they are
still unable to be 100% human-like or have the same functionality
as Google's search engine.
Can ChatGPT be Used for Essay Writing?
Thanks to GPT and machine learning, the new intelligent chatbot can write information materials and school essays, poetry and
jokes. As it turned out, essays especially good, and this
fact seriously excited many teachers.
Case Cherie Shields
Cherie Shields, a high school English teacher in Sandy, Oregon, is one of those who, instead of prohibitions, began to look for the most useful application of the novelty. In one of her lessons, she asked her students to use the new AI chatbot to create essay outlines comparing two works of fiction. They asked ChatGPT to write an example, after which they wrote their essays. Cherie Shields believes that this approach helped the students to better and deeper understand the topic of the lesson. In addition, along the way, they learned how to competently interact with artificial intelligence. After all, to obtain the necessary information, they had to master the skill of correctly compiling queries, and doing this is not at all easy.
GPTZero: and All the Secret Will be Revealed
Edward Tian, a 22-year-old student at Princeton University (USA), developed the GPTZero application during the Christmas holidays, which allows you to determine who wrote the text: a person or artificial intelligence (for example, an AI chatbot). Its demand has grown many times after many were convinced that ChatGPT can generate texts that are almost indistinguishable from those written by a human author. Those who were afraid that a smart chatbot would kill the entire system for performing creative tasks in educational institutions were especially happy about the appearance of such a "determinant".
It should be noted that GPTZero works very well. During the verification process, the application made a fair verdict in just a few seconds that the author of the text was a chatbot. Then, with the same speed, it correctly identified the text that was written by a person. By honing its recognition skill on the texts loaded into the program, GPTZero improves its accuracy with each new task.
ChatGPT is the most powerful language model that exists today, which was created by Open AI mainly for the generation of "human" texts and live communication. This chatbot can meaningfully answer the questions asked, promptly provide the requested information, engage people in a conversation, and generate text-content in any style and genre. Its appearance is already having an impact on many industries, offering their representatives to simplify the solution of some tasks and increase their efficiency.
True, in its work, there are some nuances that you should definitely consider. For example, the data it was trained on has certain limitations for events after 2021. Therefore, it will not be able to generate really fresh content. In addition, texts written using ChatGPT can be detected by Google algorithms – then the search engine can apply certain sanctions.
Now a novelty from OpenAI is at the top of the hype and many are sure that this revolutionary technology will radically change the situation, at least in the field of content generation and information retrieval. However, it is too early to draw conclusions. We will definitely discuss the results and progress of ChatGPT at the end of the year.
