ChatGPT, A Glimpse Into The Future


The most impactful transformation comes in waves of change that structurally alter and become embedded into the way we do business and how we go about and live our daily lives.


Think back to your daily life before and after some of the most impactful technology-driven transformations of the last 40 years. The list includes personal home computers, laptops, mobile phones, the internet, search engines, video streaming, social media, and video conferencing, to name a few. These technology-driven innovations often began as early-stage products and services championed by a few early adopters and visionaries. Often, they were clunky, unreliable, and meandered in obscurity, fighting for people to take notice, until they reached a tipping point where investment kicked in and they rapidly evolved to become part of the fabric of everyday life.

Once they take hold, these waves of transformation have historically driven the creation of entirely new industries, products, services, career paths, and a large return on investment for companies and investors savvy and brave enough to jump on board. For those not able to adapt or accept these new waves of change, it can be disruptive and unsettling. Old ways of doing things and skills are often quickly outdated, inefficient, or just not needed, and former industry leaders move to laggards or obsolescence. Keeping up becomes a necessity not a nicety. Consider how difficult it would be to function effectively today without a mobile phone or email account.

The good news is that we have always found a way to adjust, adapt and benefit from innovation and transformation. Artificial Intelligence or AI for short now appears to be next in line as a possible transformational moment in time that is moving out of the confines of research institutions and is being propelled into our daily life. Riding high on the current media buzz and creating a social storm is AI's new rockstar, ChatGPT from OpenAI.

To explain what ChatGPT is and illustrate the power and ease of use of this transformative technology, we visited the ChatGPT website and asked a few questions by typing them into the online interface.

Question: What is ChatGPT? Answer: ChatGPT is a conversational AI language model developed by OpenAI, capable of generating human-like text responses to questions and prompts.

Question: What can ChatGPT do? Answer: ChatGPT can perform a variety of natural language processing tasks, including:

  1. Question answering

  2. Text generation

  3. Conversational AI

  4. Text classification

  5. Text summarization

  6. Sentiment analysis

  7. Language translation

These tasks can be used to build conversational agents, automate customer service, and perform other language-related tasks that require understanding and generating human-like text.

Question: When was ChatGPT founded? Answer: OpenAI introduced the GPT (Generative Pretrained Transformer) language model architecture in June 2018, which ChatGPT is based on.

Question: What is the depth of ChatGPT’s knowledge? Answer: ChatGPT was trained on a diverse range of internet text sources, up until 2021, and has knowledge on a wide range of topics including history, science, technology, culture, and many others. However, its knowledge may not be up-to-date or complete, and may contain inaccuracies.

Question: What is the future of ChatGPT? Answer: The future of ChatGPT is likely to be shaped by the continued advancement of natural language processing (NLP) and machine learning (ML) technologies, increasing demand for conversational AI, and the need for more personalized, human-like interactions with technology. This may lead to ChatGPT being integrated into a wider range of applications, such as customer service, virtual assistants, and intelligent tutoring systems. However, it's important to note that the future of ChatGPT is dependent on many factors and is subject to change.

Question: What other tools has open AI developed and what do they do? Answer: OpenAI has developed several other tools besides GPT, including:

  1. OpenAI Gym: A toolkit for developing and comparing reinforcement learning algorithms.

  2. DALL-E: An AI that can generate original images from textual descriptions.

  8. OpenAI Generative Models: A collection of deep learning models for generating images, text, and other types of content.

These tools have been designed to advance the development of artificial intelligence, enable the study of AI safety, and help researchers and developers create new applications and products that utilize AI.

Question: What is the coolest thing ChatGPT can do? Answer: As an AI language model, one of the coolest things I can do is generating human-like text based on the input prompt, including writing creative fiction, composing poetry, answering questions, and engaging in conversation. I can also summarize long texts, translate between languages, and perform various other language-related tasks.

With the background and basics out of the way, let’s see a few examples of what ChatGPT can do. Again, we directly entered a few questions into the online ChatGPT online interface.

Question: Write a python script for reversing a number. Answer: Here's a simple Python script that reverses an integer number: def reverse_number(num): reverse = 0 while num > 0: remainder = num % 10 reverse = (reverse * 10) + remainder num = num // 10 return reverse # Example usage input_num = 12345 print("The reversed number of", input_num, "is", reverse_number(input_num))

This script uses a while loop to continually extract the last digit of num using the modulus operator (%), and then adds it to a running total (reverse) after multiplying it by 10. The input number is then divided by 10 using integer division (//) to remove the last digit, and the process is repeated until the entire number has been reversed.

Question: Please summarize the research article Mitochondrial Machineries for Protein Import and Assembly by Nils Wiedemann and Nikolaus Pfanner. Answer: The research article "Mitochondrial Machineries for Protein Import and Assembly" by Nils Wiedemann and Nikolaus Pfanner, published in 2017, provides a comprehensive overview of the process and machineries involved in the import and assembly of proteins into mitochondria.

Mitochondria are the energy-producing organelles in eukaryotic cells and play a crucial role in cellular metabolism. Proteins are imported into mitochondria by two distinct machineries, the outer membrane translocase and the inner membrane translocase. Once the proteins are imported, they are then assembled into various parts of the mitochondria, including the inner membrane, the intermembrane space, and the matrix. This process is carried out by various machineries, such as the sorting and assembly machinery (SAM), the peripheral inner membrane assembly complex (PAM), and the oxidative folding machinery (OXF).

The authors explain that the regulation of protein import and assembly is crucial for the proper functioning of the mitochondria and for cellular health. Any defects in these processes can result in diseases such as neurodegeneration and muscle wasting.

In conclusion, the authors provide a comprehensive overview of the current understanding of the machineries involved in protein import and assembly into mitochondria. They emphasize the importance of this research for a deeper understanding of cellular biology and for developing therapies for related diseases.

ChatGPT possesses a large knowledge base and is fast, flexible, and generally accurate. With traditional search, a very close cousin, what makes ChatGPT unique is the ability to recognize and interpret the context or goal of a request, amalgamate a best-guess response from a pool of known information, then based on continuous training hopefully provide better and more accurate answers. This is very much the same way humans learn and answer questions! We gather and learn information starting at birth and through feedback in the form of positive or negative reinforcement based on our responses to questions throughout our life, we learn how to use and apply that ever-expanding experience-based information to best answer questions about the world around us.

ChatGPT is currently front and center in the news cycle and trending as a leading topic on many news feeds. It has garnered an inquisitive eye and drawn the full attention of a wide spectrum of sponsors, stakeholders, and curious onlookers. Ranging from multi-billion dollar corporations to school-age children. Recent highlights from news sites and publications illustrate the breadth and reach of the ChatGHT phenomenon.

  • Former founders of big tech including Google are said to be personally leading and taking an active part in developing and driving the rush to develop new AI based products and services to ensure that their search tools stay relevant and include more AI based features. [2]

  • Microsoft is reported to have made a multi-billion dollar investment in OpenAI, to better extend and integrate into their suite of products and services including Bing search and the widely popular Office 365 suite of applications. [3]

  • Schools and Universities are having to immediately consider how this impacts the way they deliver, measure, and ensure the integrity of homework, term papers, and research. [4]

  • The legal system is debating and gearing up for a fight about who owns the right to answers derived from past works. [5]

  • Workers across many different industries including fast food order takers, customer service and sales representatives, programmers, educators, social marketers, financial analysts, and more are thinking about short- and long-term employment impacts and how to best position themselves for the future. [6]

  • People all over the world in record numbers are visiting the ChatGPT website and trying out this new technology. [7]
