A few posts ago, I mentioned ChatGPT. It's a new thing out there rocking the AI world. Is there a chance you may want to impress your kids and grandkids and know a little more about Artificial Intelligence (AI) before the lid gets blown off?

I'm not sure if this AI is the next big thing (I think it will be), but it is undoubtedly making its way into mainstream everything (maybe not even realized yet). You may be ahead of the curve if you set up an account and play with it in the next couple of months (easy peasy with an email). The free-use rollout was at the end of November 2022. By December 5th, there were over one million users. So maybe a few million by today? And it is still free with no paywall yet. The more people in the system, the more the computer learns to generate "correct" responses from gigantic databases. Maybe you have heard, "there goes the college essay to AI software?" Perhaps.

So, I signed up today to play and share with anyone interested and who reads my posts! Today may be your lucky day! If you want to get into this sort of, rabbit hole... on the ground floor, click here:

My second query:

What exactly is ChatGPT

Here is the answer:

ChatGPT is a large language model that uses machine learning to generate human-like text. It was developed by OpenAI and is trained on a massive dataset of internet text, allowing it to understand and respond to a wide range of topics and questions. It is often used for natural language processing tasks such as text generation, chatbot conversations, and language translation.

Some answers may not be perfect, but it is getting close! The answer above is precisely what this AI is all about. And answers can be funny should you ask it to tell you a joke or bring humor into a short story.

In my first query, my prompt asked for five examples of chicken recipes: Below is my "conversation." The more specific and clear the prompts are, the more detailed any output could be. Have fun with it!

To get a handle on what this "craze" is all about, and to learn a bit before trying, check out this 34-minute youtube video for ChatGPT for Beginners by Adrian Twergag, an Australian (great accent for learning!).



p.s. this post is all mine and not from the Chatbox except where I stated so, and the photos below were taken from my computer screen for my examples.
