ChatGPT is a large language model that represents the cutting edge of artificial intelligence technology. The emergence of ChatGPT and other AI systems has the potential to revolutionize many aspects of our lives, from healthcare and finance to education and entertainment. Rapid advancements in AI are being driven by the ability of machines to learn from other machines, leading to exponential growth in AI capabilities. As a result, we are seeing exciting developments in areas such as natural language processing, image recognition, and robotics.

Of late, the topic du jour for table talk has been around the emergence of AI and interfaces like ChatGPT. It feels as though overnight, individuals were able to utilize AI systems to greatly enhance their knowledge, productivity, and efficiency. In this blog post, we aim to explore this new world of AI as well as some of the broader implications that it might have.  

ChatGPT – Large Language Model

It has only been several months since ChatGPT has seemingly taken the world by storm, and already its use cases are jaw-dropping. ChatGPT is an AI chatbot that uses machine learning algorithms to respond in a human-like fashion. It is known as a ‘Large Language Model’ (LLM) which was trained on a large majority of the data on the internet, and the training was ‘unsupervised’, which means that it allowed the model to learn patterns and relationships in the data on its own.

Using ChatGPT’s interface, one can have a conversation about virtually any topic, and the results have so far enabled people to learn and work at a faster pace than before. For example, the first paragraph of this blog post was written entirely by ChatGPT.

Even though ChatGPT is fairly new, there are already AI-generated newsletters that are strictly written by AI. Individuals are using ChatGPT for personal learning, advancements, curiosities, and the amount of new content as a result of this will be enormous.

To demonstrate the capabilities of ChatGPT, I asked it to summarize the contents of this blog post so far using bullet points and highlighting the most important pieces. The AI’s response is below.

AI Generative Images

The same company that created ChatGPT also released an AI program called DALL-E that can generate images from text. DALL-E is based on the same GPT architecture as ChatGPT, and it is capable of generating highly realistic images that correspond to the text input that it receives. The implications of AI-generated images are numerous, ranging from art and design to e-commerce and advertising.

For example, I used DALL-E to generate the image below using the text input ‘robots self-learning’.
