What is ChatGPT and how does it (and similar technologies) work?

  • It is a large language model (LLM) that is "trained" on a large amount of data and GENERATES statistically probable text.
  • They DO NOT SEARCH FOR information
  • This could be correct or incorrect information
  • It is up to you to use your good judgment about it
  • They are NOT free from bias
  • Text from the internet (Wikipedia, public forums, Twitter, Reddit, code documents, etc) gets processed in a neural network
  • See Wired article for more information
