Chat Generative Pre-trained Transformer (ChatGPT) developed by OpenAI

What is ChatGPT?

Artificial Intelligence (AI) embarks on its most realistic test yet. The new text bot that engages with users in real-time with human-like responses based on machine learning algorithms scanning nearly infinite volumes of information and other stuff probably only the creators are privy. Constantly evolving (generative) through its reward system.

More Interactions = More Intelligence

How is ChatGPT different from a search engine?

A response from ChatGPT itself

ChatGPT is a tool that can be used to generate text, while a search engine is a tool that can be used to find information on the internet.

The responses from ChatGPT can be rated with a thumbs up or thumbs down and a dialog box will appear in which the user can provide additional information about the response and its accuracy.

I presume this will provide an immense amount of feedback, but the conflict may be on the integrity of the feedback and how it is incorporated into new responses.

OpenAI was founded in 2015. They launched ChatGPT on Nov. 30, 2022.

The website indicates the initial ChatGPT launch is a “free research preview” which likely assumes there are plans to monetize at some point. It isn’t clear as to how long the free period will last. There could be fees based on the amount of time accessed, number of questions answered, or unlimited access subscriptions based on various durations. The possibilities are nearly infinite, but will it deliver value and gain the trust for consumers to open their wallets.

Most recently it’s reported that Microsoft is considering putting $10 billion into OpenAI. The next round of funding would include Microsoft and other venture firms, bringing the valuation of the AI startup to $29 billion.


Responses from ChatGPT can be lengthy. A user cannot stop a response or respond to a response from ChatGPT while it is happening.

English is the primary language at the moment. Typing questions in another language has been shown to get responses in that language, such as Spanish or French.

ChatGPT is a text input and output system. It can not perform tasks such as find pictures, emails, or perform functions itself.

OpenAI has a Discord room for feedback on ChatGPT.

Updates from OpenAI site: December 15, 2022

Users will soon be able to view and continue past conversations. This is now possible as of December 20, 2022. Conversations are kept in the upper left corner. A user can continue a conversation where it left off or delete the conversation (not sure if a deleted conversation can be recovered).
