ChatGTP Is Going To Give Search Engines (Like Google) A Run For Their Money

Give it a try: ChatGPT

Wikipedia:

ChatGPT is a prototype artificial intelligence chatbot developed by OpenAI which specializes in dialogue.

ChatGPT was launched in November 2022 and has garnered attention for its detailed responses and articulate answers, although its factual accuracy has been criticized.

Instead of typing keywords into a search page, products like ChatGPT will reply to your query in language you understand. You can even tell it what kind of language to use.

Examples:

USER
help me write a short note to introduce myself to my neighbor

CHATGPT
Hi there,

My name is [Your Name] and I just moved in next door. I wanted to reach out and introduce myself. I’m looking forward to getting to know you and the neighborhood. If you ever need anything or just want to chat, please don’t hesitate to stop by or give me a call.

Best,
[Your Name]

USER
can you make it more formal?

CHATGPT
Dear Neighbor,

I am writing to introduce myself. My name is [Your Name] and I have recently moved in next door. I wanted to take a moment to reach out and say hello. I am looking forward to getting to know you and the neighborhood.

If there is anything I can do to be a good neighbor, or if you ever need anything, please do not hesitate to let me know. I am happy to help in any way that I can.

Sincerely,
[Your Name]

USER
can you send it for me?

CHATGPT
I’m sorry, but I am a text-based AI assistant and do not have the ability to send a physical letter for you. I can only provide suggestions and advice on what to write. It is up to you to take that advice and send the letter yourself.

I saw the following one on Twitter:

USER
Write a company culture code that is full of jargon and which actually says nothing

ChatGPT
Here’s a company culture code full of jargon that says nothing:

1. Our company is committed to fostering a dynamic and collaborative work environment that empowers our team members to think outside the box and drive innovation.
2. We believe in leveraging our collective strengths and diverse perspectives to drive success and deliver value to our stakeholders.
3. Our team members are expected to embody our core values of integrity, accountability, and excellence, and to act as ambassadors for our brand.
4. We foster a culture of continuous learning and development, and support our team members in achieving their professional goals.
5. We believe in the power of transparency and open communication, and strive to create a safe and inclusive space for all voices to be heard.
6. At the end of the day, it’s all about the team, and we are committed to supporting and empowering our team members to achieve their full potential.

Also interesting, from Wikipedia:

Technology writer Dan Gillmor used ChatGPT on a student assignment, and found its generated text was on par with what a good student would deliver and opined that “academia has some very serious issues to confront.”

I can’t tell if text I read online these days, whether social media or articles, is written by a chatbot. It’s probably more than I realize! Even my blog here could probably be written by a chatbot. “Write a blog in the style of Bix.” Who would know?

Interesting times…
