Imagine a personalized Google assistant who talks appealingly and answers your query accurately. Well, that's what A.I powered chatbot called chatGPT is or is at least trying to be. 

What is chatGPT?

ChatGPT is a program with AI,  which was trained to generate human-like text responses to the given query. It was developed by a company called OpenAI which billionaire Elon Musk also funds. 

ChatGPT is designed to be able to chat about a wide range of topics and can even generate text that is coherent and consistent with previous input in a conversation.

Currently, chatGPT is on research preview, and it is free to try as of now. The model will use the queries given by millions of users to learn further and strengthen its communication skills.

OpenAI themselves describe ChatGPT as Optimizing Language Models for Dialogue and went on to say the following:

We’ve trained a model called ChatGPT, which interacts conversationally. The dialogue format makes it possible for ChatGPT to answer follow-up questions, admit its mistakes, challenge incorrect premises, and reject inappropriate requests. ChatGPT is a sibling model to InstructGPT, which is trained to follow instructions in a prompt and provide a detailed response.

The chatGPT spike 

After launching on November 30, 2022, chatGPT quickly gained a lot of attention from the tech world as million-plus users signed up to use it in just five days. As famous billionaire Elon Musk also funded the chatbot, he praised the program in a tweet, ultimately promoting it. 

A user online shared interesting data to reach 1 million users for famous web addresses.

Netflix - 3.5 years 
Facebook - 10 months 
Spotify - 5 months 
Instagram - 2.5 months 
ChatGPT - 5 days

This shows that there is a market and future out there for intelligent chatbots like chatGPT, which have expertise in a wide variety of fields.
