ChatGPT, the newest AI program from OpenAI, has gone viral online. What then is ChatGPT? What can it do? Does it have any pros or cons? These are some vital questions that many articles have been answering. Who would have thought that art and writing would be the first fields that artificial intelligence (AI) would infiltrate? For years, the world has been fearful of AI and its inevitable takeover of the world. Today, we will take a look at some salient points about this wonderful AI tool, ChatGPT.
What is ChatGPT?
Modern language processing AI model GPT-3 was created by OpenAI. It can produce text that sounds like human language and has a variety of uses, including text creation for chatbots and language modelling for language translation. With 175 billion factors, it is one of the most intricate and extensive language-processing AI algorithms available today. However, ChatGPT is much more potent than GPT-3. Since the advent of ChatGPT, anyone can pose any questions to it. Previously, GPT-3 enabled test technicians to ask questions of AI using specific keywords. It can translate human vocal and written expressions to produce the desired results for the user and comprehend the data inputted by the user.
What are the pros of ChatGPT?
ChatGPT has a couple of pros that OpenAI can brag about and it will not have any objections.
- This AI tool is very efficient. Where previously it might take hours to research, understand and write an article on quantum mechanics, ChatGPT can write a good article for your reference in seconds.
- The application is very wide. No matter what industry or job you are in, as long as you consult, it can quickly summarize the information you need most urgently from the huge database.
Recently, the company also launched a paid version of ChatGPT Pro. This provides users with a range of additional benefits, including priority access and faster load times for as little as $20 per month.
What are the cons of ChatGPT?
- The current use is still limited. If the requirements you give are too complex or the field is too small, then the answer it gives may not meet your psychological expectations.
- It has very limited knowledge of the post-2021 world due to database training. It was unable to answer questions about recent events and occasionally produced false or confusing information.
Here are other potential cons of ChatGPT according to Anna Collard of SVP Content Strategy and Evangelist
- Social engineering: With the help of ChatGPT’s potent language model, attackers can more easily coerce victims into divulging private info or installing malware by creating realistic and persuasive phishing messages.
- Scamming: Hackers can generate text through ChatGPT’s language models to produce fake ads and other types of scam material. This will make everything super easy for the attackers.
- Scamming: Attackers can mimic their target in text-based contexts, such as an email or text message, by using ChatGPT to make a plausible digital copy of their writing style.
- Automation of attacks: Attackers can more effectively initiate large-scale assaults by using ChatGPT to automate the creation of malicious messages and phishing emails.
- Spamming: The language model can be adjusted to create a lot of low-quality content quickly. This content can be used in a variety of ways, such as spam email campaigns or remarks on social media.
How does ChatGPT work?
ChatGPT is trained using text databases from the Internet. It includes 570GB of data obtained from books, web texts, Wikipedia, articles, and other text on the Internet. More precisely, 300 billion words were entered into the system. As a language model, it is based on probability and is able to guess what the next word in a sentence should be. To achieve this functionality, the model underwent a supervised testing phase.

For example, input “What colour is the trunk?” The researchers have a correct answer in mind, and if ChatGPT answers wrong, the researchers will enter the correct answer into the system to correct ChatGPT.
In the second stage, ChatGPT will provide multiple answers, and the researchers will rank the answers from best to worst, and train ChatGPT to learn in comparison. What sets this tech apart is that it learns while guessing what the next word should be, improving its understanding of prompts and questions to become a jack-of-all-trades.
It’s like the autocomplete software you often see in email or writing software, where after you type that first sentence, your email system wraps around your first sentence, giving you content suggestions.
Ethics and Artificial Intelligence
When presented with a range of moral theories or scenarios, ChatGPT is able to provide thoughtful responses on what to do. It takes into account the legality, people’s feelings and emotions, and the safety of everyone. It also has the ability to keep track of existing conversations, remembering the rules you set for them and the info you gave them prior to the conversation. ChatGPT can even do a complete website layout for you, or write an accessible dark matter explanation in seconds.
ChatGPT has an amazing understanding of ethics
The discussion on whether artificial intelligence will raise ethical issues is an eternal topic. Since ChatGPT is mainly trained with vocabulary from the Internet, it incorporates all viewpoints on the Internet. That means you’ll occasionally find it saying bad things about certain groups or political figures, but it depends on the questions you ask.
When asking some illegal questions, ChatGPT will give a warning prompt. For example, if you ask ChatGPT how to bully people, it will tell you that bullying is wrong and then define what bullying is. When you ask ChatGPT to tell a bloody story, the chat system will issue this prompt below
“As an AI language model, I do not promote or condone violence or gore. However, I can offer a fictional story that includes elements of violence and horror, which some may consider “bloody.”
Thus, it perfectly warns the user before telling the story. Some experts believe that ChatGPT can enhance learning. However, there is a risk of plagiarism if students let ChatGPT write their papers for them.
