Territori 17: the emergence of ChatGPT
ChatGPT has entered with a bang to revolutionise the way people interact with artificial intelligence. A technological innovation that will transform different economic and social spheres. Gemma Vallet, director of 11Onze District explains what it is, how it works and what this technology can do.
ChatGPT is a free app that uses machine learning to understand natural language and provide answers to users in real time. A natural language model created by OpenAI, it uses one of the most advanced technologies currently available in the field of artificial intelligence and has countless applications.
The algorithm was trained on huge amounts of textual data, including: books, newspaper articles, Wikipedia texts, conversations, emails, chats and other types of documents. It was developed based on a neural network architecture originally intended for automatic text translation, but which has proven effective for other types of language-related tasks.
As Vallet explains, “we can ask it for anything from translations to text generation”, but she highlights “its ability to approach human language, including adjectives and variations” that you wouldn’t expect from a bot found in other applications.
A paradigm shift
ChatGPT is able to answer questions, offer advice, provide information, write texts and do many other language-related tasks. This model is especially useful in applications such as customer service, human resource management, machine translation, text writing and generating responses for social networks.
Its use is already changing the way many people do their jobs, streamlining processes or automating content creation, but which could also put some professional sectors at risk.
Moreover, its ability to learn from interaction with users provides it with additional data for training the model, making it more accurate and effective over time. There are even “people who ask it to create poems, training the machine in a process of creativity”, Vallet points out.
