Key Points:

  • Releasing The Revolutionary GPT-3.
  • How The Chatbot Processes.
  • Will Chat GPT Be The End of Google?
  • Concerns about The Chatbot’s Impact on Certain Jobs.
  • Limitations of The New Software.

Since its release by OpenAI, opinions are still divided between the great admiration of the human-like GPT-3 chatbot with its detailed answers to inquiries and superlative capabilities, and the rising fears and concerns about the threats it would pose to many human jobs and consequently the increase of the unemployment rate globally. Moreover, the new software would have its impact on the current widely-used search engines due to the fact that it could transform the way people use search engines by not just providing links for users to go through, but by solving elaborate problems and answering complicated questions. 

The AI-powered chatbot reached the one million users mark, less than a week after its launch according to CEO Sam Altman.

How Does It Process?

Using machine learning to generate natural language text, the GPT-3 model processes by creating responses to the user’s input depending on the prompt or a set of prompts he has provided that define the conversation topic. It is able to generate human-like text because it has been trained on a large dataset of human-generated text which allows it to learn the patterns and structures of natural language and use them to generate new text that is similar in style and content to the text it was trained on.

Some of the main features of GPT-3 include:

  • Ability to Generate: Trained to generate human-like text, GPT-3 can write essays and articles, and can also answer questions or engage in a conversation.
  • Largest Amounts: It is one of the largest language-processing AI models ever created, with 175 billion parameters, which allows it to process and understand large amounts of text data, resulting in more accurate and natural-sounding outputs.
  • Multilingual: GPT-3 can process and generate texts and content in multiple languages, including English, Spanish, French, and many more.
  • Customization: GPT-3 can be customized and fine-tuned for specific tasks or industries, such as customer service, technical writing, and content creation, allowing each user to tailor the model to his specific needs.
  • Speed & Efficiency: The software is designed to be fully effective and process large amounts of text data quickly, making it apposite for use in real-time applications like chatbots.

Will Chat GPT Be The End of Google Engine?

It is not really likely for Chat GPT to replace Google as a search engine. Despite being a powerful tool for natural language processing and generating human-like text, it is not designed to function as a search engine, lacking the ability to crawl the web, index websites, and rank search results in the way that Google does.

In its place, Chat GPT is mostly used for content and text generation tasks, such as translation, question answering, and conversation. Google, on the other hand, is a highly sophisticated search engine that uses complex algorithms to process and understand the vast amount of information available on the internet to help users find relevant and reliable information from a wide range of sources.

What Impact Will It Have on Certain Jobs?

There are some fears and doubts that the increasing use of AI may lead to job displacement, as automation and machine learning algorithms become capable of performing certain tasks more efficiently than humans. However, it is important to note that AI is not expected to fully replace human labor, but rather to expand and enhance it, helping to improve productivity and efficiency by allowing employees to focus on higher-value tasks. For example, AI-powered chatbots can handle simple customer inquiries, giving room for human customer service representatives to address more complex issues that need human sense and communication. It is also worth noting that the adoption of AI is likely to create new job opportunities in fields such as data science and machine learning, as well as in industries that are directly impacted by AI adoption. In content creation and translation, there will always be a need for a post-editing human factor to avoid the previously mentioned limitation and add the human touch to the roughly produced texts.

So, Is It Perfect? Or Does It Have Its Own Limitations?

Though the software seems stunning and totally perfect, it has its own limitations that are represented in the following:

  • It has a knowledge base that ends in 2021 and consequently has limited or no data about future events.
  • The software has very limited information to offer about some subjects, which is not enough for those seeking to write an article or do research.
  • It was demonstrated that the software produced incorrect answers in some cases. 
  • Using the same phrases constantly in most of the questions related to the same topics.
  • When given one version of a question, the bot may claim it cannot answer it, but when given a slightly tweaked version of the same question, it answers it just fine.
  • It may occasionally produce harmful instructions or biased content.

In my opinion, it is still quite early to judge the chatbot’s performance and ability to survive for a long time as Google did. The software still needs a lot of improvement that would affect the overall use and rate of the chatbot negatively if it is not seriously considered. 

After all, it is another step forward in a digital world where everything is getting automated, but this makes me wonder if we shall witness a day when AI takes control and we are totally replaced by machines that I myself would not write such a blog as I do now.
