What is ChatGPT?

To understand this question, we first need to talk about the story behind ChatGPT. This tool is the result of years of research and development in the field of artificial intelligence, especially natural language processing (PLN). 

ChatGPT is based on an AI model called GPT, which stands for generative pre-trained transformer or Pre-trained Generative Transformer. It was developed by OpenAI, an artificial intelligence research company founded in 2015 by a group of entrepreneurs and scientists. 

Including, Elon Musk was one of the founders of OpenAI, along with Sam Altman, Peter Thiel, Reid Hoffman, Jessica Livingston, among others. However, Musk decided to step away from the company after a few years. 

The goal of this organization is to develop AI that benefits humanity as a whole, without being controlled by private or government interests. After many tests and initial launches, in November 2022, ChatGPT as we know it today finally emerged. 

Now let's talk about “What is ChatGPT”!

The ChatGPT that we know and use today uses GPT-3 as a base, that is, it uses the same artificial intelligence model that was created by OpenAI, but with some adaptations and improvements. In practice, Chat is an application that allows users to chat with GPT-3 through a text interface. 

It is capable of generating answers to users' questions and requests using its large database, which contains billion words extracted from internet texts, books, articles, news and others. It is also capable of generating original and creative content, such as:

  • Poems;
  • Stories;
  • Codes;
  • Essay;
  • Songs;
  • Parodies.

How does ChatGPT work?

As you have already seen, ChatGPT operates from a large database. But how does this work? 

This huge database is used to train the artificial intelligence model, which learns to recognize:

  • Standards;
  • Relations;
  • Contexts;
  • Meanings of words.

So, when the user types a prompt, Chat will analyze and search its database. At this point, it searches for words that are most likely to appear next, according to the logic, grammar and style of the text. Finally, it generates a response that tries to be coherent, relevant and interesting for the user.

What are ChatGPT prompts?

You prompts are simple to understand. They can be defined as a way to encourage or request user input. In practice, they are words, phrases or texts that you type and that are used to ask or say something to ChatGPT. 

You can do prompts of various types, such as questions, requests or conversations. For example, if you want to know more about what prompts, you can make a prompt like this: “What is a prompt?” and ChatGPT will explain to you:

What are the functions of ChatGPT?

Have you already understood what ChatGPT is and how it works through prompts. Now, let's see some of the main functions it can perform: 

Provides answers

ChatGPT can provide answers to users' questions and this includes a range of topics. It can answer everything based on information published up until January 2022, which was its last knowledge update. In other words, after this date, GPT does not have access, therefore does not respond to current affairs

But, you may ask “Who were the last 5 World Cup champions?” and he will answer you:

Helps with writing and reviewing texts

In addition, ChatGPT can also help with writing and reviewing texts of the most diverse types. It will help you in the way you describe in the prompt, whether asking for tips, suggestions or text examples. 

If you ask “Write a poem about no-code”, it will give you this answer:

Help with language learning

ChatGPT can also help with learning new languages, acting as a kind of translator or even practicing vocabulary. 

Imagine you are in France and want to buy a Croissant. ChatGPT can help you with this, just ask “I need to buy a Croissant in France, what is the best way to order?” and he will respond:

Provides lists of the most diverse

ChatGPT can help you with ideas through the most diverse lists. Let's imagine you have a son and you want name ideas, just ask “Give me five name ideas for girls” and he will respond:

Works as a chatbot

Finally, ChatGPT can function as a chatbot, i.e. a robot that talks to users through a text interface. Imagine you are bored and want to chat with a friendly robot. 

You can say “I’m bored GPT, tell me a joke” and he will respond:
