GPT Chat: What It Is, How To Use It, And What It Allows You To Do

ChatGPT is the most famous artificial intelligence-based chatbot of the moment, not only because it is mighty but also because it is elementary to experiment with its functions. ChatGPT, also spelled Chat GPT, is simply an AI-based chatbot; others say it is a nightmare or a dream come true. ChatGPT is the acronym for Chat Generative Pre-trained Transformer, a combination of terms that tickle developers’ egos but make very little sense. 

On the other hand, it is still a prototype developed by OpenAI, the non-profit research organization on artificial intelligence that promotes the development of so-called friendly AI (friendly AI or Fai)—intelligence capable of contributing to the good of humanity but with an evolutionary mechanism subject to precise checks and balances.

Well, ChatGPT as a chatbot typically expresses itself with text and is able to provide a level of conversation like a human, or rather an omniscient intellectual purpose, so much so that universities in various countries, including the United States and Australia, have already banned its use for the creation of term papers or academic studies. 

Its secret is linked to a sophisticated machine learning model and, therefore, a top-of-the-class machine learning ability. Obviously, its excellent performance is also due to the work of several human instructors who contributed to the development of so-called supervised learning and reinforcement learning.

As if that wasn’t enough, the training environment was organized on Microsoft’s Azure cloud. The only consolation is that he struggles in mathematics; even with the most basic algebra, he has difficulty. And a machine that shines in complex aspects and glides over the basic ones of its genetics is wonderfully human.

How To Activate ChatGPT

To use ChatGPT, connect to chat.openai.com and then activate an account for free. You can choose whether to use your email or combine your Google or Microsoft account with it. Funny then that this sort of bot asks us if we are robots. The homepage of the service, which must be remembered as being in beta and currently in a free trial, provides an introductory guide and examples of use. 

After that, all that remains is to sift through the extensive documentation available and then start playing with the code on the playground, perhaps trying to emulate the Luca Doncic or LeBron James of development. Or you can choose from the many applications already created—there is also a convenient search engine—and click on the Open in Playground button, lace up your shoes, and take to the pitch. Here are a series of tricks and tips for having fun.

ChatGPT And Its Applications

Scrolling through the list of things that ChatGPT is capable of doing, you can’t help but be amazed. Mainly because it’s damn good. Among the applications, the classic game of questions and answers stands out (also based on existing knowledge), grammatical correction, summaries similar to those of an elementary school child, translation of complex texts into simple concepts, natural language for the OpenAI API, translations, creating code, SQL translation, creating a table from a long text, explaining a piece of Python code in a human-understandable language, etc. 

Sometimes, the impression is that you are dealing with a copywriter with the skills of a teacher, developer, researcher, popularizer, marketer, and a dozen other professional skills. However, as the experts pointed out, it is still a relatively widespread AI model called Gpt-3. It is capable of generating texts based on the models absorbed thanks to enormous quantities of texts collected from the web. However, it hides an industrial amount of well-known limitations and defects. In the texts, however, as some observers have pointed out, superficiality and a lack of substance replicate human action.

Is ChatGPT Dangerous?

ChatGPT’s runaway success has predictably attracted the attention of scammers. And so, for a few months, fake applications for downloading on smartphones have started to spread—regularly approved on the Play Store for Android and the App Store for iPhone. In reality, they have nothing to do with the OpenAI project but are created to install malicious content, steal data, or extort payments.

As if that wasn’t enough, the cyber security company WithSecure has discovered that through the artificial intelligence of ChatGPT (GTP-3), the language model used by OpenAI, it is possible to generate excellent and convincing texts for phishing emails, fake news articles, and other content potentially usable for malicious purposes. It also seems very easy to carry out trolling on social media by creating from scratch a sort of identity capable of publishing insults at full throttle. Not to mention tweets to make a cryptocurrency scam more credible, the production of fake news, etc.

ChatGPT, The Future That Awaits Us

ChatGPT has been available online for a few months, but the community that is contributing to its development or use is constantly growing. It is not yet clear whether a killer application will be achieved, but what is certain is that the eloquence of this technology could revolutionize sectors where human confrontation is expected. Think, for example, of all those situations where you want to assert your right or reason and those where you try to sell a product or service.
