ChatGPT is the virtual A.I. robot that is all the rage and on everyone’s lips.
At the end of November last year, a new A.I. program appeared and was soon considered a technological milestone: ChatGPT. What does it consist of and how does it affect learning and creativity…?
“I am ChatGPT, a large-scale artificial language model trained by OpenAI. I have been taught to process natural language and respond to questions and requests on a variety of topics. I am designed to have meaningful conversations and provide useful and accurate information to users.” (This is how ChatGPT defines itself.)
So ChatGPT is a virtual robot (chatbot) that responds within seconds to a random request on any topic (“write a Charles Dickens-style story about the Thames in 400 words,” for example), writing a unique version. It is available in almost 100 languages.
Why is ChatGPT considered a breakthrough for A.I.?
A.I. programs based to date on large language models (LLM) work by storing large Data and algorithms to predict the best text. However, ChatGPT understands how language works thanks to reinforcement learning through human feedback (RLHF).
Is it a threat to learning?
Text-dependent fields, such as journalism, could be severely affected, and ChatGPT is capable of generating programming code, which also raises questions in this sector. But one of the most affected areas is education. Let’s see why:
1. Many students use the program for homework (it is already banned or limited in many countries).
2. In addition to “copy and paste”, there is a fear of the long-term impact on our brains, which have been slowly shrinking in size as a result of technological development.
3. Teachers should be aware of new technologies and integrate them into their activities, joining the current universe of students.
How will ChatGPT affect the future of human creativity and content production?
ChatGPT bases its answers on texts available on the Internet (news, books, etc.), so it can include ideas from authors without respecting intellectual property. In addition, ignorance of the sources can lead to fake news.
As algorithms are devices for generating combinations, the creative impulse could be reduced. But nothing could be further from the truth: they also generate patterns that could not even be imagined, thus enhancing our creativity.
In short, technology is a very powerful tool for expanding our knowledge, as we test countless variables in a short time. However, it can also be a threat to those who use these systems without questioning morals and ethics.
Nubeprint offers a managed MPS solution with algorithms and dynamic filters based on A.I. In 2013, it developed the first A.I. engine for MPS and, since 2017, it has a Machine Learning (ML) developed specifically for MPS: through this machine learning, the system develops pattern recognition and the ability to learn continuously, with predictions based on Big Data, after which it makes the necessary adjustments without having been specifically programmed to do so.
