How to use ChatGPT, the fashionable conversational bot

ChatGPT is a chatbot which has achieved great popularity since its release to the public last November. It has been developed by the company specialized in artificial intelligence research, OpenAI, based on its Gpt-3.5 technology, the largest neural network known to date with 175 billion parameters.

AI-based chatbots are nothing new since their origins date back to the 1960s. Their operation today is the same as then, basically a «conversation-dialogue» between a human and a machine. The improvement in its capabilities since then has been impressive, as has its fields of use in a multitude of contexts and the way it is presented to the user, be it through written text or through a multimedia interface (or text-to-sound converter programs). ) that allows you to “talk” through a more natural conversation with the AI. An example that we use on a daily basis are virtual assistants such as Alexa from Amazon, Siri from Apple or the Assistant from Google.

ChatGPT has gone viral in recent weeks. In just three days from the public launch, it already had a million users and today you will find it everywhere on the Internet. Although it is similar to the ELIZA created at MIT in 1966 and which is considered the first AI-based chatbot in history, its ability is unmatched in using the latest technologies in supervised learning and reinforcement learning, using human trainers to improve performance. model performance.

The objective remains the same as in its beginnings, to get a machine is as intelligent as possible and be able to respond to the questions or requirements of a human in the most precise and natural way. The technological field of AI is, as you know, exciting… and worrying on the other hand if it is not used correctly and with rules that should be fully defined to prevent one day, as some critics fear, from finding an AI like the one movie skynet Terminator, that ends up having a “conscience”, outsmarts its creators and exterminates humans. Beyond science fiction, the dictators of the planet sigh with automated weapons (and soldiers) that can lead us to destruction.

How to use ChatGPT

Beginning lesson. ChatGPT is available, for the moment, for free. And this is so because the natural language processing model is still in its “learning” phase. We don’t know if it will be for a long time. Although OpenAI was originally founded as a non-profit organization, a paid “PRO” version has already been announced. Taking into account the executives behind it, with Elon Musk at the helm, it is clear that the objective will be to monetize these services. Microsoft has already announced that they are going to implement ChatGPT as an API in their Azure services and are going to invest a whopping $10 billion in OpenAI.

In case the gratuity ends, this is how you can access:

  • Access the following OpenAI link.
  • Create an account, via email or with a Google or Microsoft ID.

  • Verify your email.

  • Type a name and phone number.
  • Accept the terms of use.

From here, whatever you want. In a simple interface, with the only option of a dark mode, you can use it to create content; to correct errors in a code if you are a developer; calculate; translate information; summarize a book; writing a song and a very long etcetera including just having fun for a while. It must be said that unlike other chatbots, ChatGPT has status or what is the same is able to recall previous directions that he provided to the human in the same conversation.

Of course, it is not perfect and conjugates detailed answers with gross errors. In each answer you can report its usefulness or the bugs found. Other times it provides outright false information (without meaning to) and is not (thankfully) able to replace human interaction and verified sources of information. ChatGPT continues and will continue to get smarter with its use as it uses Reinforcement Learning with Human Feedback (RLHF). We’ll see where he can go.
