Let us tell you that Sam Altman, CEO of ChatGPT started working on ChatGPT from the year 2015, in which Elon Musk was also involved with him.

But Elon Musk left this project in the middle. When the project started, it operated as a non-profit company.

Interestingly, the ChatGPT project was later invested in by Microsoft company co-founder Bill Gates and was launched in the year 2022.

What is ChatGPT?

ChatGPT is a chatbot, which is designed by OpenAI. Here GPT stands for "Generative Pre-Trained Transformer".

It is basically a free language model, designed to generate human-like text, which works on Artificial Intelligence (AI) techniques.

This amazing software was launched on 30th November 2022, and within just 5 days, 1 million users registered their accounts on it.

Through this tool, you can get general information on any topic, such as you can get answers to any of your questions, coding information, scripts, essay, email formatting, etc.

Basically, this Chatbot is a smart AI system that is capable of answering almost all the queries of the users.

How Does ChatGPT Work?

It would not be wrong to say that ChatGPT works like a search engine.

As you see this tool is recently launched and it currently generates content in the English language only.

In the coming days, the company can also add many other languages to it.

If you search for a query on Google, then many websites related to it appear in front of you. But ChatGPT does just the opposite.

Actually, whatever question you search here, you are shown the direct answer to that question.

This is the major difference between Google and ChatGPT.

The developers who designed ChatGPT used public data available on the Internet to train it.

Here whatever question you ask to this chatbot, the answer is presented to you in an accurate and correct format after finding it from the data collected from the internet.

The best part is that here after you are asked your questions, you are also given an option of whether you are satisfied with the answers or not.

Keeping in mind the feedback received from the users, it updates its data in a better way.

What are the Pros and Cons of ChatGPT?

So below now we find out what are the advantages and disadvantages of ChatGPT.

Pros of ChatGPT

  • This is an absolutely free platform
  • You can create a smartphone application by using ChatGPT
  • Here users get direct detailed answers to their queries.
  • By using ChatGPT you can write novels, stories, scripts, and more
  • You can generate topic and content ideas for your blog, website, and YouTube channel.

Cons of ChatGPT

  • It is currently free, but users may be charged for using it in the future. So you can use ChatGPT for free for a limited time only.
  • Of course, this smart AI system has answers to all your questions, but it only has limited data.
  • It is unable to give accurate answers to a few questions. Also, it is not able to give information about upcoming events. Here you can hardly find any information about upcoming events.
  • Being in its research stage, it supports only the English language. So at the moment, it is useful only for those users who know the English language.

Is chatGPT capable of defeating Google?

This is a question that is being discussed everywhere and everyone wants to know whether ChatGPT is able to beat the biggest search engine like Google?

So the answer is 'NO'. ChatGPT is certainly a smart AI system, but it is not powerful enough to beat Google. There is only a limited amount of data available.

The most important thing is that this chatbot can answer only in text format. Whereas on Google you can get data in the form of videos, images, audio, and other formats as well.

The current status of chatGPT is not such that it can defeat Google in any way.

But if in the future developers make chatGPT more powerful by continuously upgrading it, then maybe it can give tough competition to Google.

Final Verdict on ChatGPT

In this article, we have covered almost everything related to ChatGPT.

But one question still comes to the mind of many people is whether ChatGPT can eliminate human jobs as well.

Due to chatGPT, freelancers and web developers can be affected the most, because through this every person can easily create scripts and content. Apart from this, users can create apps and websites through coding, etc.

Overall, ChatGPT is such a powerful tool through which internet users can save a lot of time.

It's completely free for now, so I think you should definitely take advantage of it
