How to use OpenAI ChatGPT. OpenAI has made headlines now about a chatbot called ChatGPT. What is ChatGPT and how does it work? How can you safely use it?

ChatGPT is an open-source chatbot AI launched in November 2022 by OpenAI. OpenAI is a company founded in 2015 by Elon Musk, Sam Altman and other silicon valley tech giants. It is a nonprofit research foundation aimed at helping humanity through Artificial intelligence. You can install ChatGPT from PlayStore.

Simply said ChatGPT is a conversational language model. It is based on the GPT-3 (Generative Pre-trained Transformer) architecture and is trained on a large dataset of conversational text. Imagine the autocorrect or complete sentence that we use on mobile phones and computers beefed to a new level.

It can be used for a variety of natural language processing tasks such as language translation, text summarization, and dialogue generation. It is designed to generate human-like text, making it well-suited for use in chatbots and other conversational systems.

Example of what ChatGPT can answer in a few seconds:


How do I make an HTTP request in Javascript?


“There are several ways to make an HTTP request in JavaScript, but one of the most popular methods is using the fetch() function. The fetch() function is an inbuilt function in JavaScript, which is used to fetch data from a server.

Here is an example of how to use the fetch() function to make a GET request to a server:

Additionally, there are other libraries such as axios, superagent, etc you can use to make HTTP requests in JavaScript.”

ChatGPT Capabilities and Usage

ChatGPT is a disruptive technology that can be used for good or even bad. But here are some light points and how to use it. According to the developers and from the experience of our chat history ChatGPT is able to remember what the user said earlier in the conversation. Its ability to keep track and offer solutions based on earlier input.

Additionally, the chatbot allows the user to provide follow-up corrections but as a caution, it is trained to decline inappropriate requests. But one thing to be known as that AI has an in-depth understanding of things from its 175 billion lines of parameters.

What can it do? ChatGPT has an in-depth understanding of the worded language, meaning it creates a poem that even explains quantum mechanics. From the examples at Lensesview, we asked the AI and it was able to produce a whole history of Zambia as a nation and also the recent technology role and challenges the country has faced.

The most amazing thing we found with ChatGPT was not that it could write scripts for a blog post but rather that it could do that in a few seconds and minutes rather than spending hours on research. In a few minutes, 80% of the work is done.

Also as shown above the AI is able to code give instructions and create a plugin that can be used on a WordPress site.

ChatGPT Limitations

As much as it is fun to generate content so quickly with the AI you must remember that it may occasionally generate incorrect information. So always be up to the question with the information given.

Also as mentioned that may be used for bad things ChatGPT may occasionally produce harmful instructions or biased content. Don’t take everything it says. After all, it is built upon data fed to it by erring humans. 300 billion words were fed into it resulting in massive data of 570GB from all corners of the internet; Wikipedia, books, blog posts and articles all over the internet.

On its limitations is also the knowledge. ChatGPT is limited to knowledge of the world and events before or up to 2021.
