Understanding ChatGPT: The AI Behind the App
ChatGPT, powered by OpenAI’s advanced conversational AI, is more than a typical AI chatbot. Based on the GPT-3.5 architecture, it utilizes natural language processing to deliver near-human responses based on the prompts that users provide.
- It can generate human-like responses, answer questions, follow up on topics, admit mistakes, and reject inappropriate prompts.
- ChatGPT is well known for providing personalized conversational experiences to its users, enabling them to explore ideas, seek guidance, and engage in meaningful exchanges.
Basically, since it is a language model, users can talk to this chatbot using their mother tongue. Here is an example of how BitPinas talked to ChatGPT in the Filipino language:
