Frequently Asked Questions
Here is a collection of frequently asked questions about Generative AI, and its applications in different industries.
What is ChatGPT?
ChatGPT is a kind of large language model. These types of models are known as generative AI .
ChatGPT is a type of language model that's been trained on vast amounts of text data, and it can generate human-like text based on the input it's given. It can be used to draft emails, write code, create written content, answer questions, tutor in a variety of subjects, translate languages, and even write poetry.
How does this kind of AI (a Large Language Model) work?
Large Language Models (like ChatGPT) uses a machine learning technique known as transformer neural networks, specifically a variant called GPT (Generative Pretrained Transformer). It's trained on a diverse range of internet text, but it doesn't know specifics about which documents were in its training set or any specific books, authors, sources, or databases. It generates responses to input by predicting the probability of each word following a given sequence of words.
Is ChatGPT conscious or sentient?
No, ChatGPT is not conscious or sentient. While it can generate text that seems human-like, it doesn't have feelings, beliefs, desires, or consciousness. It doesn't understand the text it generates, but rather it predicts the next word in a sequence based on patterns it has learned during its training.
Can ChatGPT learn of remember personal data?
No, ChatGPT is designed to respect user privacy and it doesn't have the ability to remember or learn personal data from interactions. It doesn't have access to personal data about individuals unless it has been shared with it in the course of the conversation. It's designed to forget this information after the conversation ends.
