What is ChatGPT?

ChatGPT is a conversational robot, also known as a chatbot, designed to answer any questions it is asked. It's a model that has been pre-trained to respond to its user. It utilizes artificial intelligence capable of generating text in a coherent and relevant manner, as well as understanding and responding to queries expressed in everyday language. It grasps contexts and sentence meanings, making interactions much more "human-like."

The applications of ChatGPT are diverse and include: virtual assistants, chatbots, tools, ...

What are the main features of ChatGPT?

  • ChatGPT is capable of generating coherent, relevant, and rapid text content. Thus, it can produce responses that are entirely natural. You'll feel like you're talking to a human rather than a computer. If you don't like its response tone, you can always ask it to adapt its response tone.
  • Context understanding: In most cases, ChatGPT will be able to understand the context without needing detailed context provided each time.
  • Interactive conversation: ChatGPT can respond like a human, engaging interactively, which saves you from having to revisit context or details at any moment; it will always take into account the latest messages. It may sometimes forget initial response elements if the conversation becomes lengthy.
  • Continuous learning: ChatGPT improves continuously, and regular updates are made by OpenAI teams.
  • Personalization: In some paid versions or using the API, it's possible to customize ChatGPT to provide personal instructions or specific instructions. It's also possible to share these later on the GPT Store (similar to an Android PlayStore but for GPT).

What are the differences between ChatGPT and other language models?

  • GPT is based on the Transformer architecture, a model designed for natural language processing.
  • ChatGPT is pre-trained on a vast amount of data mainly from the internet.
  • ChatGPT is designed to be able to converse with you: that's truly its strong suit.
  • ChatGPT is relatively heavy as a model but is relatively very powerful. Depending on certain tasks, it's not necessarily required to use such a powerful model with so many parameters for more basic tasks. We'll come back to this in other articles later.

How does ChatGPT work?

As we've seen, ChatGPT operates on the Transformer architecture. So, it's a pre-trained model (GPT) on huge amounts of text to understand natural language.

What are the application domains of ChatGPT?

  • It's possible to create content quite easily with ChatGPT: you can write text content easily with high precision data, you can write articles, product descriptions, speeches, paraphrases, etc.
  • Language translation: it's possible and quite easy to translate languages from one language to another, and its strength being that it generally understands context, it can translate better than a simple traditional language translator.
  • Writing responses to questions asked of you, which can be very simple or very complex questions, replying to an email question.
  • Developing chatbots and virtual assistants...

Some concrete examples of using ChatGPT

  • A user can use ChatGPT to draft a first article. They can ask ChatGPT to write the entire article or just a part. They can also ask for the article to be paraphrased. Everything is possible.

What are the advantages of using ChatGPT?

  • Rapid and high-quality generation (but quality needs to be checked). ChatGPT content is generally of high quality but also creative and original.
  • Improved efficiency: Many tasks can be automated with ChatGPT, enhancing productivity.
  • ChatGPT is available 24/7: You'll generally tire out much more quickly than it!
  • Adaptability: You can customize ChatGPT according to your needs, businesses.
  • Continuous improvement: ChatGPT is constantly evolving and being improved day by day.
  • Access to a large knowledge base: ChatGPT has access to a vast database.

What are the limitations of ChatGPT?

  • ChatGPT is free in version 3.5 and paid in version 4 and limited to 40 requests / 3 hours.
  • ChatGPT can sometimes make mistakes or attempt to deduce the result based on its predictions. Good prompts are necessary to avoid this kind of phenomenon (hallucination). It's always advisable to proofread the generated content to ensure it aligns with reality.
  • Internet dependency: Internet access is required to use ChatGPT.
