What is now mainstream is something that is just in the beginning stages with AI_ChatGPT. AI and the use of it has been in the experimental phase for the last couple of years but now with this new incarnation it has officially gone mainstream with over 1 million users world wide. As the latter increases things are indeed about to get weird, and possibly have some profound ramifications as it pertains to making a lot of job obsolete changing social and economic landscape forever. In fact it is predicted with the introduction last week of AIChatGPT that Google may only be around for maybe 1 to 2 years more as this latest technology is taking off by storm for better or for worse. What will that mean for you and me? We either adapt or get left behind in learning how to use it. In other words things are about to change in quite a significant way.
A tech company has developed a state-of-the-art AI chatbot so sophisticated that it could render search engines — not to mention countless jobs — obsolete.
Unveiled last week by the OpenAI company, ChatGPT has already amassed more than 1 million users worldwide with its advanced functions, which range from instantaneously composing complex essays and computer code to drafting marketing pitches and interior decorating schemes. It can even whip up poems and jokes — an ability previously thought to be relegated to humans.
In fact, ChatGPT’s capabilities have sparked fears that Google might not have an online search monopoly for much longer.
“Google may be only a year or two away from total disruption,” Gmail developer Paul Buchheit, 45, tweeted on December 1. “AI will eliminate the search engine result page, which is where they make most of their money.”
“Even if they catch up on AI, they can’t fully deploy it without destroying the most valuable part of their business!” Buchheit said, noting that AI will do to web search what Google did to the Yellow Pages.
For the uninitiated, ChatGPT works by applying a layer of Reinforcement Learning from Human Feedback (RLHF) — an algorithm reliant on human responses — to “create a new model that is presented in an intuitive chat interface with some degree of memory,” according to Ben Thompson at Stratechery.
In layperson’s terms, ChatGPT is a lot more human than prior search engines, albeit with a supercomputer’s wealth of data — think Scarlett Johansson in “Her.” For instance, users who Google “what is the maximum dosage of vitamin D per day” simply received a link to HeathLine.com. However, when they posed the same question to the AI, it formulated an in-depth dissertation, the Times of London reported.
ChatGPT has also demonstrated a human knack for abstract thinking. One disillusioned Twitter user prompted the AI with the command: “write a haiku from the perspective of a copywriter who is feeling sad that AI might diminish the value of the written word.”
ChatGPT responded: “Words on a screen, now just a blur, machine takes the pen.”
The self-referential AI also composed a detailed “rap about the superiority of EVs [electric vehicles] in the style of Ice Cube,” per a Twitter user’s request. Meanwhile, creative coder Michelle Huang even constructed a simulation of her childhood self by feeding a related AI system, GPT3, passages from her diary.
“What kid is ever doing homework again now that ChatGPT exists?” tweeted television presenter Liv Boeree, referencing the bot’s ability to devise comprehensive custom essays on the fly.
ChatGPT’s superhuman abilities mean it could potentially redefine the economy by replacing humans in jobs ranging from website building to architecture to journalism.
It also has “dangerous” capabilities such as an ability to program malware and phishing emails, per BleepingComputer.com. And critics have pointed out its inheren
