Create a global fever
ChatGPT with the full name Chat Generative Pre-training Transformer is a user interaction tool (chatbot) integrated with artificial intelligence (AI) developed by the technology company OpenAI. In a basic sense, ChatGPT is built to make chat with humans similar to real people. Content can cover many topics such as life, science, history, etc.
According to statistics, ChatGPT currently has more than 10 million users since its launch at the end of November 2022. This is an extremely impressive number if you know that one of the leading social networks in the world today is Instagram, it took 1 year to reach the number of users. And Facebook took nearly 2 years.
The main reason why ChatGPT created a global craze is that it is considered to be very intelligent, surpassing any chatbot that has been popularly used so far. Not only can chats with humans in the form of regular Q&A, but ChatGPT can also do more complex stuff. These can be mentioned as writing poetry, editing an article, writing a thesis, or even programming for computers …
Can ChatGPT replace humans?
Since its inception, ChatGPT has aroused many debates about the capabilities of this chatbot. In it, there are 2 lines of comments worth noting. Firstly, ChatGPT will become more and more intelligent and replace people in fields such as programming, journalism, and finance… The second opinion is that this is unlikely and ChatGPT cannot replace completely. be human.
According to many AI experts in the world, the biggest difference between humans and ChatGPT lies in the ability to think and create. All ChatGPT’s answers to users are only encapsulated in the data it loads, so the “understanding” of this chatbot is limited. Not only that, but similar to many other chatbots, ChatGPT cannot distinguish the accuracy of the information it gives, but merely responds to available data.
Director of CMC CIST Dang Minh Tuan assessed that this chatbot is not too smart and especially it cannot be creative. By nature, ChatGPT is not a knowledge database and is not capable of inference. Simply, ChatGPT only guesses the next word based on the number of associations between words already in the database to be trained for it.
ChatGPT is quite interesting and useful in some areas but it is still very far from being compared with human intelligence. This chatbot can only give answers based on what is learned, not infer what has not been learned. But humanity is characterized by creative thinking humans have created a lot of things that are not available in nature.
“At present, ChatGPT should only be considered as a reference resource to learn or find information, not as an absolute source for making important decisions,” he said. Dang Minh Tuan gives advice.
However, in the ChatGPT reality test, the chatbot performed the final exams at some universities in Minnesota (USA). The results are amazing as ChatGPT passes all these tests. Notably, the grading process for the above tests was done by university professors and they did not know in advance that it was done by ChatGPT.
Who is the father of ChatGPT?
Samuel H. Altman is the father of ChatGPT. He was born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri, of Jewish descent. He attended high school at the John Burroughs School and then studied computer science at Stanford University. However, in 2005, Altman decided to drop out, and in 2017 received an honorary degree from the University of Waterloo.
It is known that in 2005, Altman and his friends founded Loopt – a mobile application and location-based social network and became the CEO of this startup. Loopt raised $30 million but closed in 2012 because it failed to attract attention. This startup was later acquired by Green Dot Corporation for $43.4 million.
Altman started working as a part-time partner at a popular startup incubator Y Combinator in 2011. In February 2014, he was appointed president of Y Combinator. Two years later, Altman became the chairman of YC Group, which includes Y Combinator and others, aiming to fund 1,000 startups a year.
In 2019, Altman resigned to focus on OpenAI. Altman was honored by Forbes in the list of the world’s top 30-year-old investors in 2015. BusinessWeek called him one of the “Best Young Entrepreneurs in Technology”.
