Ever since the launching of ChatGPT, the chatbot that utilizes artificial intelligence (AI), the Internet has not been the same. The application has become one of the fastest-growing ones in history in the web.
With two months since its release (which was done in November 2022) the chatbot has gotten around 100 million active users, which goes to prove the imminent success it has had, when compared to other applications like TikTok. The short-video social media took about 9 months to get the same amount of users, and Instagram needed two years and a half to obtain the same result.
UBS analysts reported the brand-new broken record in February, and stated, in the twenty years they have been analyzing different platforms and tools, they have never seen such a fast increase in the amount of users a platform has ever had, except for ChatGPT.
The artificial intelligence program was created by OpenAI in collaboration with Microsoft. Ever since its successful launching, it has raised a number of discussions and speculations regarding the future of the Internet, and most importantly, society with the establishment of artificial intelligence.
It is no secret that there are several platforms which make use of AI, such as : ChatGPT, DALL-E, Bard and AlphaCode, being these four of the most popular ones. Thanks to their help, people can make different types of texts such as essays, poetry or theater plays.
With the advancement of this new technology, the scientific world has shown its concerns, specially in the working area where a lot of jobs might be disappearing in the future, as they are set to be replaced by bots which carry out different activities in a company.
IA comprises three stages, which include:
- Narrow artificial intelligence – capable of decision making and completing actions based on these decisions.
- General artificial intelligence – capable of having the same cognitive capacities as a human being. For example, listening, reading or thinking.
- Super artificial intelligence – the most concerning one, which can potentially beat the human brain in all fields, including scientific creativity to social skills.
