OpenAI, founded by Elon Musk with investors including Microsoft, introduced a ‘research release’ of its revolutionary ChatGPT product, allowing anyone to test the powerful machine learning algorithm that is capable of powering both search engines and chat bots that are far beyond anything previously publicly available.
The bot is capable of giving helpful responses to such queries as:
“Write a computer program to ask a user to enter a website, then read that website to them.”
“Invent a new card game by adding a unique variation to Go Fish that adds complexity and strategy.”
“Write a story about joining social media for the first time from the perspective of Joan of Arc.”
“Write an article about Covid from the perspective of a libertarian.”\
“Write a song about Paris in the key of C and return readable sheet music.”
“Fix the following computer programming code…”
The implications of this technology are massive, and seem to be part of what will define the coming web3/openai/blockchain era.
It’s free to try at chat.openai.com, and anyone can sign up for the beta and use the more powerful ‘Playground’ tool.
Here is the description ChatGPT gives itself when asked, “What is ChatGPT?”:
There is no specific product called “chatGPT,” but it is possible that you may have encountered a chatbot or conversational AI that uses the GPT model as its underlying technology. These chatbots are able to generate responses to user inputs in a conversational style, and may be used in customer service or other applications where a natural language interface is desirable.
