What is ChatGPT and GPT-4?

ChatGPT and GPT-4 are artificial intelligence (AI) chatbots or large language models built by OpenAI, which allow people to interact in a conversational way. They use natural language processing (NLP) to generate conversations and respond with relevant answers that mimic human speech. Both ChatGPT and GPT-4 can chat with you, answer follow-up questions, challenge incorrect information and perform tasks such as writing text and generating code and other outputs. 

GPT stands for ‘Generative Pre-trained Transformer’, which refers to how these bots process requests and formulate responses. Both models have been trained with huge amounts of data and use human feedback and reward models to rank the best responses. ChatGPT can only provide answers based on the information it has been trained with and does not have the ability to search the internet for new information. However, GPT-4 (the latest language model from OpenAI) can be connected to the internet via plugins, giving it the power to search for information and datasets online. 

ChatGPT and GPT-4 have certain limitations, as OpenAI makes clear, including sometimes writing answers that sound believable but are factually inaccurate, giving biased responses and the risk that they may action inappropriate or harmful requests. They may also infringe intellectual copyright by incorporating content without permission and not attributing content.

ChatGPT Plus is a subscription service that gives subscribers access to ChatGPT and GPT-4 during peak times, faster response times and priority access to new features. ChatGPT and GPT-4 are also available as APIs or application programming interfaces that can be integrated into other apps and online services.

Open AI has also developed DALL·E 3, an AI text-to-image generator that lets you enter a textual description or prompt into ChatGPT and then generates a new high-resolution image. OepnAI is also in the process of creating and testing Sora, a text-to-video artificial intelligence generator, which has not yet been released to the public.
