It seems you can’t go anywhere these days without hearing about ChatGPT and how it’s taking over everything – but despite being so popular, not many people know what it means.
ChatGPT is an AI chatbot which uses natural language processing to create dialogue that sounds humanlike.
It’s similar to automated chat services that you’ll find on customer service websites.
People can use it to write content such as essays, articles, emails and more – which is great if you’re not the best with words or simply don’t have the time.
The GPT in ChatGPT stands for ‘Generative Pre-trained Transformer’ and this references how the platform processes requests and formulates responses.
The model-based chatbot works through its Generative Pre-trained Transformer by using specialised algorithms to find patterns within data sequences.
It also uses the GPT-3 language model, which is a neutral network machine learning model that is the third generation of Generative Pre-trained Transformer.
Many people have taken to social media and revealed that they had no idea what the GPT in ChatGBT stands for.
One person writes: “Have you been seeing a lot about #ChatGPT recently, but do you know what the GPT in ChatGPT stands for? I only just found out the full form today!”
Another adds: “Today I learned the GPT in ChatGPT stands for ‘generative pre-trained transformer’.”
While many people have lots of positive things to say about the chatbot, others are sharing their concerns.
It was recently reported by Daily Mail that ‘half of school and college students are using ChatGPT to cheat’.

Rehan Haque, of artificial intelligence company Metatalent.ai, says: “We’re already at the point where AI can write entire projects, and then a different AI tool can reword it to make AI undetectable.”
Others have shared their concerns that the chatbot could eventually take their jobs – a worry that has been addressed by global outplacement and executive coaching firm Challenger, Gray & Christmas’ senior vice president, Andrew Challenger.
He says, via CBS: “Right now, artificial intelligence should be viewed as a tool to support workers and not as a replacement for their roles.
“Certainly, predictive language models can be used to automate tasks, giving workers more time to focus on those involving higher thinking.”
So if you’re one of the few who are concerned about the chatbot and how it’s slowly but surely being integrated into everyone’s daily routine – it’s probably wise to sit back and wait before worrying about the what-ifs of ChatGPT and its potential.
