The whole world is getting obsessed with the trending buzzword - ChatGPT. Within a few weeks of its introduction, the word spread like viral and generated talks around the technological concepts of AI.  In the blog, we'll see what ChatGPT is, why it is so trending, how to leverage the tool, what its limitations are, and much more. By the end of the blog, you'll know in and out of ChatGPT.

What Is ChatGPT?

ChatGPT is an AI-generated tool that lets the user ask any question or query, and the bot will answer it with the pool of data present on the internet. The tool is assumed to be a change maker in the digital world, especially in specific industries like marketing, customer service, and content creation. 

The reason behind it getting in trend is due to the various significant abilities. The tool is believed to replace the most used search engine Google. Also, as ChatGPT can write content and codes just in seconds, many believe the coders and content creation work would now be performed by bots. Keeping this aside, you would be surprised to know that the answers provided by the bot are very much similar to humans due to its training methods. With this, I assume you'll be interested to know how ChatGPT was trained, let's see that too.

How Was ChatGPT Trained?  

To train ChatGPT, a vast quantity of data, including text from a variety of human interactions, was probably fed to the model. Machine learning algorithms were then used to train the model to anticipate the upcoming word or phrase in the discussion based on the information it has already received. 

After that, the model was improved to do a particular task, such as responding to user intervention in a bot application. Due to its increased popularity, many users have to wait to use the tool. The platform often shows "ChatGPT is at capacity right now," which means there's huge traffic on the site. Other than this, there are many more drawbacks of ChatGPT; let's see some of the limitations of ChatGPT:

What Are The Limitations Of ChatGPT?   

Below mentioned are certain drawbacks of using ChatGPT: 

  • Possibility Of Wrong Answers 

Various times, it is observed that ChatGPT fails to deliver the right answer for the query generated by the user. Due to this, the users cannot depend entirely on the tool for the correct answers, 

  • Lack Of Emotional Touch 

The content produced by the ChatGPT tool is straight to the point, and it doesn't have any examples or humor to keep the reader engaged. The tool is unable to include expressions in the writing and thus can only be partially relied on by businesses. 

  • Lack Of Insights 

While using the tool, it was observed the tool only summarizes the topic. Especially at the time of academic writing, the tool neglected the insights, data, and statistics and just summed up the topic to complete the task. 

  • Too Formal 

The one stable characteristic of ChatGPT is that its content is always formal. On the other hand, humans tend to write in easy-to-understand language that has examples, humor, slang, etc. 

  • Not Fully Trained 

The Open AI platform clearly says that it is important to keep a human eye on the content produced by ChatGPT. It says that it is important to review the content before publishing and to use the content. So, these were some of the limitations of ChatGPT Tool. Let's see who came up with this tool. 

Who Built ChatGPT?   

The AI research and application company OpenAI is the owner and developer of Chat GPT. Several well-known individuals, including Elon Musk, Sam Altman, Peter Thiel, OpenAI's principal scientist Ilya Sutskever, Jessica Livingston, and Linkedin cofounder Reid Hoffman, created the company, which has its headquarters in San Francisco. Sam Altman, who was formerly the president of Y Combinator, is the CEO. Microsoft has invested $1 billion as a partner and investor, and they worked together to create the Azure AI Platform.
After knowing so much about ChatGPT, one might wonder how to use it and if the tool is free to use. Let's answer your questions: 

Is ChatGPT Free To Use?   

ChatGPT is currently free to use, and anyone can utilize the natural language processing model without charge as long as they register for a free OpenAI account. At the same time, there is still the opportunity to subscribe to a premium membership because it is still in the research and "learning" preview phase. For $20 per month, OpenAI has just introduced the new ChatGPT Plus package, giving clients unlimited access without dark windows, quicker responses, and preferential access to new features.

Users can still use the chatbot without a subscription. Still, there are constraints to a free account, especially in the reality that many individuals find themselves was unable to access ChatGPT at any given point when it's at capacity, hence the potential preference for a Plus membership. If you haven't used ChatGPT, once, you'll find the next part of this blog useful, that is how to use ChatGPT: 

How Can ChatGPT Be Used?

Create a free OpenAI account with your email address and use that account to register for ChatGPT. It's time to read and go through the terms and conditions for ChatGPT and click on Next after logging into your OpenAI profile on the ChatGPT side of the website. When you get to the final one, click Done.

It's done now.

It's time to use ChatGPT now that you know how to access it and log in. Ask the speech model any queries raised you may have, and pay attention to the responses you receive. It's crucial to double-check the information you receive from ChatGPT because, like any language model, it has its limitations and occasionally provides responses that make no sense. It is constantly picking up new information from the text material that is given to it, which can make it vulnerable to error. To help the model be improved, OpenAI advises users to rate what ChatGPT tells them using the thumbs-up and down buttons.

Also, the tool is not connected to the internet, so it won't tell you the answer question of how many days are left for any festival. Therefore, any current changes in the trending topic will not be automatically taken into account by the tool, and it will first be required to be trained for the same. 

Will The Tool Replace The Google Search Engine? 

LaMDA is an AI chatbot that Google has already developed. An engineer at Google asserted that LaMDA was sentient since the chatbot's performance was so similar to a human discussion.

It is likely that a business like OpenAI, Google, or Microsoft will eventually replace conventional search with an AI chatbot, given how these massive language models can respond to so many queries.


Having said that, perhaps you now better understand why this technology has been so popular in recent months. The fact that the data itself isn't "supervised" and the AI is able to interpret what it is fed is the key to the whole thing.
