We all witnessed the time when we got involved in some of the chat rooms where instant messaging can help us a lot with our problems. That model answered questions within already fed information.

Now, its time has gone!

The new AI, the ChatGPT 3 that has come after November 2022, is bringing a revolution in the search system of today’s world.

Amazingly, it is revolutionising the world that we must consider how the new ChatGPT works.

So let's hear the thing about it:

What is ChatGPT?

ChatGPT is an AI tool based on a large amount of information available on the Internet.

A machine learning "transformer model” uses a neural network architecture to understand and generate human-like language responses.

Here is a brief overview of how ChatGPT works:

  • Training data: The tool is based on a large amount of data collected from books, articles, websites, and other forms of information. It works on analysing patterns and identifies relationships between phrases and words.

  • Tokenisation: The tool works on tokenisation, breaking down information into smaller chunks like punctuation words, phrases and special characters. Then each token is assigned a unique numerical value to process and generate a response.

  • Training the model: That response is encoded with the neural network. The model learns to make predictions and assessments about the possible text.

  • Generating responses: In the last stage, the tool puts the user's question and puts it against the information the model has learned. After that, it generates a response from the tokens it has.

In short, ChatGPT works on statistical analysis principles, using those numbers to process natural language and generate human-like responses.

Indeed, ChatGPT isn’t a perfect AI tool that answers every question equal to human potential, but it has shown tremendous abilities.

For instance, the new chatbot can provide extensive business plans for different business ventures or answers to your school assignments without getting into trouble for plagiarism or similarities. And it can do a lot.

Here is how a lawmaker sees ChatGPT

*“ChatGPT has changed our world system to another level. It answers questions with correct information that has never been done. It is changing the subject of the world.”*

How do Researchers See This?

Researchers claim that the ChatGPT bot possesses much computing data to produce any content near human potential.

That can be a new newspaper article. That can be a medical prescription, or it can be a lawsuit produced for the judge.

However, researchers are so; I’ll argue that the new Open AI tool is intrinsically different regarding human thought processes.

Here are the reservations they have:

  • Ethical concerns: Researchers are concerned that the tool has generated responses biased against many social groups and can have potential threats and implications for the marginalised. The reason is that the tool learned from the data collected over the Internet. That way, the tool shows some extreme ethical concerns.

  • Need for responsible development: The researchers have asked to build responsible technologies that have the potential to understand societal norms and culture and be transparent in working towards all groups equally.

  • Limitations: Researchers have shown concerns that the tool is limited in understanding complex language. Sometimes it generates repetitive and irrelevant answers to the text that is fed.

Considering that the new board will replace humans, it is impossible until today's information.

What Big Corporations are saying

In the wake of using ChatGPT, different tech giants, including Facebook and Google, have also been trying to launch their versions into the market that control their consumers and help them in their journeys.

But, currently, charging ChatGPT is ruling the market.

Number one is Microsoft, which has allowed its employees to actively use ChatGPT. And Microsoft is the sole investor in ChatGPT.

Google is also trying to launch its AI bot, Bard. However, its launch has been postponed for some technical malfunction. It will be available in the market very soon.

On the other hand, Meta has also decided to include AI features in its products, including Instagram and Facebook. Users can use AI features to perform several tasks, such as socialising with a different set of data profiles and other types of feedback.

Here’s how fortune 500 is seeing ChatGPT:

  • Data analysis: Fortune 500 are seeing ChatGPT as a source of data analysis. They are considering that the new tool will help them process a large amount of information and provide them insights that can help them increase their businesses.

  • Content creation: They are considering ChatGPT as a tool for creating content that includes marketing and branding. It will help them write articles, brochures, sales pages, social media posts, and many other forms of advertising.

  • Human resources: For fortune 500, ChatGPT is a great source of higher talent from a large audience pool. With it, they can process many resumes and CVs in a very short period.

Overall, Fortune 500 are considering the health benefits of AI technologies like ChatGPT in their businesses. They are eager to enter and internalise this technology to enhance their business productivity.

What’s ChatGPT for a Society

On the Societal level, it is doing a tremendous job of solving the problems of common people.

For instance, the tool has been found to answer customers' queries in indifferent business platforms, hotel chains, restaurants, and other modes of public communication.

People are using this tool to increase their problem-solving abilities. They use it to answer exam questions, fill out political forms, and reply to traffic officers with the best options to minimise the fine.

Also, people use it instead of their lawyers and develop arguments for their cases against the jury. However, the new Open AI tool sometimes produces limited or biased responses. That needs human engagement.

Here is a brief list of some social effects of ChatGPT:

  • Accessibility to information: The number one effect of ChatGPT on society will be that the information is readily accessible to many people living there. This way, it helps mitigate the differences in education, economics and politics among various societal groups.

  • Automation of customer service: The following effect of ChatGPT on society will be that the tool will automate the customer services that different businesses and organisations have.

  • Job displacement: With Open AI, several jobs will be displaced to other tasks, including those that require repetitive work without due diligence. This way, some people will be jobless in one sector, and another will require a boom in people with different skill sets.

  • Impact on communication and social skills: ChatGPT will affect people's communication and interaction. The ChatGPT will replace existing technologies and do all the communication by itself. This way, humans can have difficulty forming human and personal connections with other people.

What's the Future of ChatGPT

ChatGPT 4 is on the way, and speculations say it will vastly improve OpenAI's ChatGPT already remarkable language skills.

To be clear, ChatGPT 4 is unlikely to be the name of OpenAI's next product, but we used our imagination and coupled the ChatGPT label with the upgraded AI model that would power it in the future, GPT-4.

Let's look into GPT-4, how ChatGPT works currently, and when OpenAI's next significant upgrade is expected.

What exactly is GPT-4?

GPT-4 is a new language model developed by OpenAI that can generate text that sounds like human speech. It will advance the ChatGPT technology, which is based on GPT-3.5.

GPT stands for Generative Pre-trained Transformer, a deep learning technique that writes like a person using artificial neural networks.

To accomplish the desired effect, billions of parameters are applied to change the output of ChatGPT's simulated neurons.

The massive quantity of detail allows a computer to approach the interconnection of a human brain, which likewise has billions of neurons. OpenAI has not verified any facts regarding GPT-4 but has stated that it is in the works. Rumours, on the other hand, abound.


  • GPT-4 is on the way, but better Codex is the priority.
  • The next Codex release will be monumental.
  • GPT-4 will have a larger model but will be better trained.
  • DALL-E will be made public.
  • They wager that multi-modal models will outperform pure text models regarding text creation.

GPT-3.5 can handle up to 2,048 words, while the two DV models, GPT-4, might have four times (8K resolution) and sixteen times (32K) that capacity, enabling considerably more in-depth talks to address much larger difficulties.

Finally, all of this is speculation, and all we know for definite is that GPT-4 is in the works and might significantly improve the outcomes available with ChatGPT.

Is there a release date for GPT-4?

GPT-4 is on its way and will likely arrive this year. Nevertheless, we do not yet have a precise release date for its availability in ChatGPT.

Microsoft has announced that GPT-4 will be available in the week of March 13, i.e., this week and that it will be a multimodal model capable of producing text, graphics, and even video.

Nevertheless, it is unclear how Microsoft and OpenAI will use GPT-4 at this time. It's conceivable that the model is being released for research purposes, so we might have to wait a bit longer before seeing it in ChatGPT and Microsoft's Bing Chat.

GPT-4 is an evolution rather than a revolution.

While GPT-4 will probably be spectacular, OpenAI CEO Sam Altman stated in a StrictlyVC interview released on YouTube by Connie Loizos that "people are asking to be disappointed, and they will be."

Altman recognises the potential for AGI to devastate the global economy and believes that a rapid deployment of multiple incremental adjustments is preferable to a dramatic development with little time for the world to react.

In other words, GPT-4 will be an evolution rather than a revolution. Altman claims that the future version of ChatGPT will not be an AGI and will not have 100 trillion parameters. The rumours are false.


So far, the overall effects of the ChatGPT are being witnessed on every level. It's the start of a new AI-based revolution that is going to benefit humans a lot, and it is going to challenge conventional human wisdom.
