What is ChatGPT? The AI chatbot taking the world by storm | East … – East London and West Essex Guardian Series

In November 2022, San Francisco-based artificial intelligence lab OpenAI released ChatGPT, an AI chatbot that quickly became a sensation and captured the interest and imagination of people across the world.
It has reportedly been used to write cover letters, and literature and even help students cheat on their essays. 
Google found that, in theory, the search engine would hire the bot as an entry-level coder if it was ever interviewed at the company.
The introduction of AI in everyday life is as concerning as it is exciting. Although it can be used efficiently for producing human-like text in a timely manner, it therefore questions the need for what it impersonates, humans.

ChatGPT is trained to follow an instruction in a prompt and provide a detailed response and is powered by a deep neural network (DNN). DNNs are software architectures that are roughly inspired by the structure of the brain.
They learn to perform tasks by processing many examples and tuning their parameters to approximate the common patterns they spot across those examples.
According to PCMag, here are a few examples of what ChatGPT can do:
It also interacts in a conversational way. The dialogue format makes it possible for ChatGPT to answer follow-up questions, admit its mistakes, challenge incorrect premises, and reject inappropriate requests
