Dissecting the AI; How effective is ChatGPT?


With each passing day, innovations arise that change the way humans do things. In the realm of technology a new star is born, in the form of an AI, to be precise generative AI. But what is generative AI? Well, consider it as a robot who has the ability to create new and unique content, rather than just processing and analyzing existing data. This advancement may go a step further than your go-to search engine. The introduction of ChatGPT, like any new technology or innovation, has been met with a mix of excitement and skepticism. On one hand, many people see the potential for ChatGPT to revolutionize the way we interact with technology. On the other hand, some people are concerned about the implications of such advanced AI systems, particularly in terms of privacy and ethical considerations. Let’s dive in a bit further.

What Is ChatGPT?


ChatGPT, or Generative Pre-trained Transformer, is a language model developed by OpenAI. The main game of ChatGPT is its ability to generate human-like text based on any given prompt. The user experience of interacting with ChatGPT is quite simple, as it requires only a minimal input in the form of a question and it generates a response.

The interface of ChatGPT is typically accessed through a command line interface or an API, which allows developers to integrate the model into their own applications. The output of ChatGPT can be highly diverse and flexible, this makes it a powerful tool for natural language generation, question-answering, and even language translation.

What are some use cases?

As these models are still in their early stages of development, we are currently observing the initial wave of applications across various industries. These include, but are not limited to:

Generating content

One of the most significant uses of ChatGPT is its ability to generate high-quality content. Whether it’s writing a song, a short story, an ad copy, or even a news article, ChatGPT can produce compelling and engaging text with ease. Its advanced understanding of language and ability to emulate human writing style makes it an ideal tool for authors, journalists, marketers and content creators.


ChatGPT also has a lot of potential for code writing and debugging. It can process code, write it, and help developers debug them quickly. For example, it can be used to generate SQL queries, which is an essential skill for data scientists and developers. Additionally, ChatGPT can also help developers understand and troubleshoot complex code, making it an incredibly valuable tool for software engineers.

Data Management

The tool’s ability to understand and convert unstructured data into a structured format makes it an ideal tool for managing and organizing large datasets. For example, it can be used by UX design managers to extract relevant information from unstructured data sources like user feedback and customer reviews. This can be highly useful in taking informed design decisions and improving the overall customer experience.


ChatGPT’s ability to explain and tutor is another area of potential impact. As the tool’s tutoring capabilities develop and become more refined, it has the potential to revolutionize the way students learn. With its ability to explain complex concepts and answer a student’s questions, ChatGPT could become an essential tool for educators and edtech companies looking to enhance their teaching methods.

In conclusion, ChatGPT is a powerful and versatile AI tool that has a wide range of applications. From content creation to data management, ChatGPT has the potential to impact a wide range of industries and professions.

Here are few more AI tools for reference.

Ability to replace Google?

For over two decades, Google has been the primary gateway for information. However, with the advent of new chatbot technology, such as ChatGPT, traditional search engines like Google may face a significant challenge to their main search business. ChatGPT does use artificial intelligence which could potentially reinvent or even replace traditional internet search engines. It may be just a speculation, but possibilities can’t be denied. However, ChatGPT was not designed to replace Google as a search engine. Google is a search engine that is designed to help users find specific information on the internet by using a complex algorithm to index and rank web pages based on their relevance to a given search query. In contrast, ChatGPT is a language model that is designed to understand and respond to natural language prompts in a way that emulates human conversation.

While ChatGPT can provide users with information, it is mainly designed to generate text or respond to questions in the most human way possible. In other words, it can help users to find specific information and generate text based on a prompt, but it is not designed to provide the same level of comprehensive search capabilities as Google.

Sometimes it just makes us stuff

ChatGPT does not have the human conscience and does not possess the ability to reason or think critically. Instead, it is simply a tool that uses patterns and associations found in the data it was trained on to generate text.

This means that if the data used to train ChatGPT contains inaccuracies or biases, the model will reproduce those inaccuracies and biases in the generated output. Additionally, because ChatGPT is able to generate text that is indistinguishable from text written by a human, it may spread misinformation across the internet, that can be taken as fact. There are times when it may produce output that is nonsensical or unrelated to the input provided. ChatGPT only has training data up to 2021, meaning that it does not have information or knowledge about events or developments that have occurred after that year. This can limit its ability to provide accurate and up-to-date information on certain topics. Hence, its understanding of current events, technology, and cultural trends may not be as current as users expect. Here’s a basic example of the tool’s misinformed attempt at answering the prompt — “Iphone 13 vs Iphone 14”.

Many say that ChatGPT’s ability to create answers that aren’t available on Google is pathbreaking. However, there’s no source of truth for this bot, hence the misleading answers. Chatbot artificial intelligence has been in development for some time now, much longer than ChatGPT arrived. In those years, it has been carefully crafted, and improved upon by some of the best and brightest minds in technology. Given the amount of tinkering that has already gone into it, the AI copywriting tool is likely ready to be put into service. We are on track to make advancements towards a world where AI & humans can live in unison.
