10 Things I know about ... ChatGPT

Editor’s Note: All the text in bold below was written by the ChatGPT artificial intelligence. Those sections were verified as accurate by a human editor, but they have not been changed.

Michelle Drolet is CEO of Towerwall, a cybersecurity services firm based in Framingham.

10) ChatGPT is a language model developed by OpenAI, a research organization dedicated to creating and promoting friendly artificial intelligence (AI). Free for now, it reached 100 million active users in two months.

9) It uses a deep neural network architecture called Transformer, which has revolutionized the field of Natural Language Processing. Must be serious. Microsoft invested $10 billion in the project.

8) ChatGPT is a conversational AI that can answer questions, generate text, summarize articles, translate languages, compose song lyrics and other content. It can draft legal documents, write Shakespearean sonnets, and even jokes.

7) ChatGPT is trained on a large corpus of text data collected before 2021, allowing it to generate human-like responses to various prompts.

6) It has been fine-tuned for specific tasks, such as question-answering, conversation, and language translation. CNN reported ChatGPT could pass the U.S. Medical Licensing exam.

5) The model is highly scalable, meaning it can be fine-tuned further to meet specific needs. Bad actors are using it to create mutations of malware code difficult to block. And to draft phishing emails in perfect English.

4) ChatGPT can be integrated with other technologies, such as chatbots and virtual assistants, to enhance the user experience. It can be used like a search engine. It may disrupt Google.

3) Despite its impressive performance, it is important to note that ChatGPT is not perfect and can still generate biased or incorrect responses. It wrote, “It takes 9 women 1 month to make a baby.” It has trouble with math.

2) OpenAI has made the model available to developers and researchers through its API, making it accessible to a wide range of users. The hope is it’s beneficial to society but school officials, artists, and cybersecurity pros beg to differ.

1) It may be the greatest advancement since the smartphone. As AI continues to advance, it is likely that the capabilities of language models like ChatGPT will expand.
