Creating Content With ChatGPT — Can’t Replace A Human — MacSources
ChatGPT is a useful writing tool, but it’s not a human replacement.
As a content creator, I have been aware of AI Writing tools for quite some time, but I don’t use them in my reviews. I have tested them out and found that while they are good, they aren’t perfect. More importantly, they don’t always sound like a human. In fact, when it comes to being creative or offering an opinion, AI tools tend to fall very short.
There are many AI writing tools available to the public, but the most popular one right now — the one getting the most buzz — is ChatGPT. I was curious about how it worked so I decided to dive right into the system and provide an overview of my experience. For the remainder of this article, I will include some snippets from the ChatGPT responses, but they will always be in quotes or otherwise called out.
What is ChatGPT?
ChatGPT was developed by OpenAI, an artificial intelligence research organization founded in 2015. The platform is an AI-driven chatbot that was launched as a prototype in November 2022 with its stable release on February 13, 2023. GPT stands for generative pre-trained transformer which is a language model that is designed to provide human-like text. ChatGPT is well-known for being versatile and being able to generate different types of content such as:
- composing music, teleplays, fairy tales, and student essays
- writing and debugging computer programs
- and, answering test questions
As good of a tool as it is, ChatGPT does still have some limitations. It has limited knowledge of events that occurred after 2021 and the program is designed to not provide political opinions. The platform also falls prey to algorithmic bias.
