ChatGPT explained: everything you need to know about the AI chatbot

Created by artificial intelligence firm OpenAI, is a chatbot — a computer program that converses with human users. The program uses an algorithm that selects words based on lessons learned from scanning billions of pieces of text across the internet. We’re also particularly looking forward to seeing it integrated with some of our favorite cloud software and the best productivity tools.

So, if you ask the free version of who won the World Cup in 2022, it wouldn’t be able to give you a response, but Google would. The language model was fine-tuned using supervised learning as well as reinforcement learning. The use of Reinforcement Learning from Human Feedback (RLHF) is what makes ChatGPT especially unique. Text-generating AI models like ChatGPT have a tendency to regurgitate content from their training data. But OpenAI recently disclosed a bug, since fixed, that exposed the titles of some users’ conversations to other people on the service. While ChatGPT can write workable Python code, it can’t necessarily program an entire app’s worth of code.

We’ll also soon be launching the (ChatGPT API waitlist), and we are actively exploring options for lower-cost plans, business plans, and data packs for more availability. We love our free users and will continue to offer free access to ChatGPT. By offering this subscription pricing, we will be able to help support free access availability to as many people as possible.

That’s because ChatGPT lacks context awareness — in other words, the generated code isn’t always appropriate for the specific context in which it’s being used. At a press event in Redmond, Washington, Microsoft announced its long-rumored integration of OpenAI’s GPT-4 model into Bing, providing a ChatGPT-like experience within the search engine. The announcement spurred a 10x increase in new downloads for Bing globally, indicating a sizable consumer demand for new AI experiences.

If you don’t want to download an app, smartphone users can use the AI-based tool from their mobile browser on their device. The model takes a chunk of text (say, the opening sentence of a Wikipedia article) and tries to predict the next token in the sequence. It then compares its output with the actual text in the training corpus and adjusts its parameters to correct any mistakes. By doing this over and over across a very large body of text, the transformer develops a model of language that can create coherent sequences of text when given a prompt. The app supports chat history syncing and voice input (using Whisper, OpenAI’s speech recognition model). We know that many limitations remain as discussed above and we plan to make regular model updates to improve in such areas.

Type in a question in the chat box at the bottom to get started. Select New chat in the top left at any time to begin a new conversation. Now you just need to accept the ChatGPT terms and conditions. Then, read the second message about data collection and privacy and select Next. Finally, read the third message asking for feedback, then select Done. OpenAI now offers an official ChatGPT app for iPhone, and an Android app is on the way.

  • Plugins allow ChatGPT to connect to third-party applications, including access to real-time information on the web.
  • And journalists, well, it’s a small miracle we’re writing this story.
  • It has created both excitement and alarm, bringing its developer OpenAI into conflict with regulators, particularly in Europe, where the company’s mass data-collecting has drawn criticism from privacy watchdogs.
  • However, what makes the app different from the default experience or the dozens of generic AI chat apps now available are the characters offered which you can use to engage with SuperChat’s AI features.

Within a week of its launch, the model had gained one million users. OpenAI, the company that created ChatGPT, has not yet monetized ChatGPT on a wide scale. A free version of ChatGPT remains available on OpenAI’s website as of Feb. 23, 2023. However, the company does sell the application programming interface on a subscription basis to organizations looking to use the model for their own purposes, according to Investopedia’s query to ChatGPT itself. Most people get the same results because they carry out the same, ineffective actions on repeat.


OpenAI announced in a tweet that the mobile app is now available on iOS in the U.S., Europe, South Korea and New Zealand, and soon more will be able to download the app from the app store. The Browsing feature can be enabled by heading to the New Features section of the app settings, selecting “GPT-4” in the model switcher and choosing “Browse with Bing” from the drop-down list. Browsing is available on both the iOS and Android ChatGPT apps. For example, a person may sue a supplement company because the pills made them sick, and the FTC will launch an investigation on the back of that because there’s evidence the company lied about the side effects.

ChatGPT was created by OpenAI, the same company that also made DALL-E 2, which kicked off the wave of AI image generators. While DALL-E 2 generates images, ChatGPT is solely text-based—and it’s not OpenAI’s first chatbot. People are expressing concerns about AI chatbots replacing or atrophying human intelligence. For example, the chatbot can write an article on any topic efficiently (though not necessarily accurately) within seconds, potentially eliminating the need for a human writer. A mentioned above, ChatGPT, like all language models, has limitations and can give nonsensical answers and incorrect information, so it’s important to double-check the data it gives you. Instead of asking for clarification on ambiguous questions, the model just guesses what your question means, which can lead to unintended responses to questions.

An Australian mayor has publicly announced he may sue OpenAI for defamation due to chatgpt’s false claims that he had served time in prison for bribery. This would be the first defamation lawsuit against the text-generating service. OpenAI allows users to save chats in the ChatGPT interface, stored in the sidebar of the screen. The research was conducted using the latest version, but not the model currently in preview based on OpenAI’s GPT-4.
