At the beginning of the year, we already talked a little about how neural networks work, and today we are looking at what the ChatGPT chatbot, which is sensational on, can do, about which controversy on the Internet continues.

What is ChatGPT anyway?
In short, it’s a chatbot developed  by OpenAI. ChatGPT can conduct a dialogue, and an informed one, answer questions, give advice, decipher complex terms in simple language, solve mathematical problems, write texts based on specifications, and even do the code for the programmer. 

We trained GPT on a huge amount of data from the Internet, “feeding” a wide variety of information to artificial intelligence. Currently freely available, GPT uses the GPT 3.5 language model, which is considered one of the most advanced natural language processing tools. But, by the way, there is also a paid version, available only by subscription, which uses an even more advanced GPT 4 model. 

How is ChatGPT different from other chatbots?
One of the main differences between GPT and other neural network bots is that it has, so to speak, “memory”. That is, during the conversation, the chatbot remembers the details of the information and can construct answers based on the context that you offered. GPT also avoids expressing personal opinions - if you ask such a question directly, the chatbot will answer that it recognizes itself as an artificial intelligence that lacks emotions and subjective preferences. He also has internal filters that will not allow him to get answers to questions on provocative topics.

Another important detail is that the chatbot learns directly during the dialogue, and any GPT response can be corrected if the AI ​​incorrectly considered the context.

What can ChatGPT do?

What can GPT do besides the primary task of generating texts?

Help write simple code and look for errors in it
The chatbot can even “translate” code from one programming language to another, and is predicted to have a great future as a tester.

Answer complex questions better than Google
This postulate is actively replicated in a lot of articles, but in reality everything is not so rosy. The chatbot successfully provides a short summary of useful information, but it is worth keeping in mind that this information has the same sources as search engines, which means it is better not to neglect fact checking. 

Come up with scripts, write poetry and music

The chatbot knows a lot about popular films and TV series and easily comes up with alternative endings or additional episodes. AI is also familiar with the principles of versification and musical notation. 

Give medical advice
The question is a little alarming, but it is important to note that after issuing recommendations, the chatbot always advises you to consult a doctor first. However, the creators of GPT are also considering the profession of a medical chatbot. 

Translate texts

A useful function if you need, for example, to translate a letter into English as quickly as possible. The quality remains about the same as Google's automatic translator, but GPT greatly simplifies the process due to the speed of text processing. By the way, there have already been stories on social networks about how users improved their English using GPT. 

Relay complex information in simple language

If you upload a voluminous scientific article into a chatbot and ask it to be explained in several abstracts so that even a preschooler can understand, the result will be excellent. GPT is good at creating concise summaries, which is great if you need to quickly understand a large amount of information.

But we must not forget the following:
- verbosity - GPT often repeats the wording of the question, and the answers may contain more “water” than facts; 
- non-existent sources - if the AI ​​does not have enough data to answer your question, you can get a compilation of crazy facts. This is why neural network texts must be checked;
- sensitivity to the request - sometimes you have to spend a lot of time for the chatbot to understand your question and give the desired answer.
