AI Chatbot Chronicles: GPT-4 Unleashed, ChatGPT's Journey, and Multimodal Marvels

Introduction

In today's news roundup, we will discuss the following key events:

  1. ChatGPT, created by OpenAI, is a natural language AI chatbot that generates responses based on a Large Language Model (LLM) rather than using pre-set answers. It is built on the GPT-3.5 LLM and has been trained on various web content, using supervised learning and Reinforcement Learning From Human Feedback (RLHF). To use ChatGPT, users need to register for a free account on chat.openai.com, providing an email address and a non-VoIP phone number. Once registered, users can type in text prompts and receive information, refining their questions based on the context of previous queries. ChatGPT can be guided to provide answers in specific styles, tones, or formats. However, there is a potential for the chatbot to generate incorrect data if there is not enough accurate information available. ChatGPT, powered by GPT-3.5 LLM, has limited knowledge of events after 2021 and only works with text. The basic version is free to use without daily usage limits, but there are word and character limits for responses. OpenAI spends approximately $3 million per month to run ChatGPT. A premium version, ChatGPT Plus, costs $20 per month and offers additional benefits.\n\nUsers need to experiment with prompts to get the best results from ChatGPT. It can be used for various tasks, like writing template blog posts or generating code. However, it has limitations and safeguards against offensive content. The announcement of ChatGPT plugins has excited developers, as they can build plugins directly for ChatGPT, allowing it to access the internet and connect to specific APIs. Early applications include Expedia, Instacart, Slack, and OpenTable. Despite its usefulness, ChatGPT has faced problems and criticisms. Generative AI like ChatGPT has raised concerns among tech leaders and public figures, who have signed a petition to slow down its development.
