The AI-based chatbot ChatGPT that everyone’s talking about and why it’s a big deal.

By Dennis Shelly

You have probably heard of ChatGPT and artificial intelligence in the news recently and perhaps wonder what it is exactly and how it works. ChatGPT is a long-form question-answering AI-based chatbot developed by OpenAI. It can answer complex questions in a conversational way. Its ability to learn and understand what humans mean makes it a revolutionary technology. Many users are in awe of its ability to provide responses that are of human quality, which gives rise to the idea that it could soon have the ability to change how people interact with computers for information retrieval. In this article, we will tell you what exactly is Chat-GPT, how it works and what are its limitations.

What is Chat-GPT?

It is based on the top of the GPT-3 family of large language models from OpenAI and has been improved (a method of transfer learning) using supervised and reinforcement learning methods in a procedure known as reinforcement learning from human feedback (RLHF). Both strategies made use of human trainers to enhance the performance of the model. During supervised learning, the trainers acted as both the user and the AI assistant in conversations that were given to the model. During the reinforcement learning stage, human trainers initially scored replies generated by the model in a prior conversation. These rankings were used to develop “reward models,” which were then further improved over a number of iterations. Furthermore, OpenAI keeps collecting information from ChatGPT users which could be used to train, fine-tune and improve ChatGPT. Users can give ChatGPT’s responses an upvote or downvote and leave additional feedback in a text field.


Features of ChatGPT:

  • Versatile: can write code, music, essays, poems, etc.
  • Can answer test questions at an above-average human level
  • Remembers previous prompts in conversation
  • Filters offensive prompts
  • Attempts to reduce harmful and deceitful responses

Limitations of ChatGPT:

  • Sometimes produces incorrect or nonsensical answers
  • Limited knowledge of events after 2021
  • Cannot express political opinions or engage in political activism
  • Training data suffers from algorithmic bias

How to use ChatGPT

  1. Go to and create an account using an email address or a Google or Microsoft account. To log in and use ChatGPT, you must first register an account on the OpenAI website.
  1. After logging into your OpenAI account on the ChatGPT side of the website, go through the ChatGPT terms and disclosures and click Next. When you get to the last one, click Done.
  2. That’s all. Ask the language model any questions you have and see what type of responses you receive.


ChatGPT was asked the following question and its response.

The question:

Explain in simple terms what is chatgpt, how it works, and its advantages and disadvantages.

ChatGPT’s Response:

“Sure, I’d be happy to explain what ChatGPT is and how it works!

ChatGPT is a large language model created by OpenAI. Essentially, it’s an artificial intelligence program that has been trained on vast amounts of human language data, including books, websites, and other text sources. This training allows ChatGPT to understand natural language and generate responses to questions and prompts in a way that seems like a human is doing the talking.

The way ChatGPT works is by using a process called “natural language processing” (NLP). When a user types a question or prompt, ChatGPT uses its vast knowledge of language to understand the question and generate an appropriate response. This process happens very quickly, and can be done in real time through a chat interface.

The advantages of using ChatGPT are numerous. For one, it can quickly provide helpful responses to users who have questions or need assistance. Additionally, because it’s an AI program, it can work 24/7 without getting tired or needing breaks. This makes it an ideal tool for companies or organizations that need to provide support or assistance to customers or users at all hours of the day.

However, there are also some disadvantages to using ChatGPT. One potential issue is that because it’s an AI program, it can sometimes generate responses that are not accurate or appropriate. Additionally, because it’s a machine, it may not be able to provide the same level of empathy or personal touch that a human customer service representative could.

Overall, though, ChatGPT is a powerful tool that can be very useful for a variety of applications. Its ability to quickly generate responses to natural language queries can save time and provide valuable assistance to users.”

To Conclude

ChatGPT is a powerful AI tool that represents yet another advancement in natural language processing. Probably its most impressive capability is the capacity to generate human-like output after analyzing human input. ChatGPT has multiple applications ranging from language translation and text summarising to research and automation. Keep in mind that, like all technology, ChatGPT has limitations, so it’s always a good idea to double-check its responses.
