What is ChatGPT, you might ask? Well let’s ask ChatGPT!

“ChatGPT is a conversational AI language model developed by OpenAI. It is a variant of the GPT-3 model that has been trained specifically for generating human-like text in response to user input, allowing it to engage in open-ended conversations on a wide range of topics. ChatGPT is designed to generate realistic, coherent responses that follow the flow of the conversation and incorporate relevant information from the context provided by the user. It can be used in applications such as chatbots, virtual assistants, and online forums to provide more natural and engaging interactions with users.”

Why would I want to use ChatGPT instead of any other ai language model?

“ChatGPT is designed specifically for conversational AI, which means that it is able to maintain the context of a conversation and incorporate relevant information from previous exchanges in its responses. This makes it a good choice for applications that require the ability to carry on extended conversations and maintain a consistent dialogue with users.”

So, you know.. It’s pretty good. If you use this AI (or any other AI) you will start to hear it’s style. And of course you will always need to double check everything it puts out, especially if it’s fact-based. But on the other hand, it took me 3 minutes to write this lightning round item, and I think we can agree it’s a vast improvement over the last time I asked AI to justify the reasons for its own existence. Which is good.

If this keeps improving at this pace, Ned won’t need me on the show at all- oh wait. That’s bad.
