OpenAI’s ChatGPT Update
OpenAI’s AI-driven chatbot, ChatGPT, has recently caught the eye of many because of its remarkable text generation skills. Its latest update has added to its charm, allowing it to create diagrams, maps, and even turn pictures into motion graphics.
ChatGPT’s parent company is OpenAI. OpenAI is a research organization committed to ensuring that artificial general intelligence (AGI) benefits all of humanity. Initially founded as a non-profit, OpenAI later transitioned to a “capped-profit” model to attract funding while still focusing on its mission of safe and broadly beneficial AI. The organization is known for its dedication to open research, publishing most of its AI research to the public. However, safety and security concerns have led to some exceptions in this open approach. OpenAI has been at the forefront of AI advancements and has produced several groundbreaking models, including GPT (Generative Pre-trained Transformer) series, of which ChatGPT is a part.
OpenAI has been associated with several prominent individuals in the tech and AI industry. Here are some of the notable figures:
He is the CEO of OpenAI. Before joining OpenAI, Sam was the president of Y Combinator, a well-known startup accelerator, and co-chairman of YC Group. He has been a prominent figure in the tech startup scene.
One of the co-founders of OpenAI, Ilya is a leading expert in machine learning. Before co-founding OpenAI, he worked at Google as part of the Google Brain team.
Another co-founder and the CTO of OpenAI. Greg has been deeply involved in the organization’s technical advancements and vision.
A co-founder of OpenAI, Wojciech has been involved in various AI research projects and has contributed to the growth and direction of the organization.
John Schulman and Alec Radford
Both are researchers at OpenAI and have been instrumental in the development of several models and tools, including those in the GPT series.
While these are some of the prominent figures associated with OpenAI, it’s worth noting that the organization comprises a large team of talented researchers, engineers, and professionals who collectively contribute to its projects, including ChatGPT. The development of models like ChatGPT is a collaborative effort, with many individuals playing crucial roles in research, development, and deployment.
ChatGPT’s plugins are additional features or tools that enhance the core functionalities of ChatGPT. They allow the chatbot to perform a wider range of tasks and access various external services. By integrating these plugins, ChatGPT can go beyond just text generation and conversation. For instance, it can search the web, analyze SEO, retrieve content from scientific literature, and more. These plugins essentially expand the capabilities of ChatGPT, making it more versatile and useful for users in different contexts.
Introduction of the Code Interpreter
ChatGPT Plus members now have access to a new feature: the code interpreter. This feature lets ChatGPT analyze data, make diagrams, solve mathematical problems, and change files. It also brings in the ability to upload and download files, something ChatGPT lacked before.
ChatGPT Plus subscribers received this feature last Thursday. This premium service comes at a monthly cost of $20. Subscribers also get exclusive access to features that connect them to third-party services like Expedia and OpenTable.
Functioning of the Code Interpreter
When you ask ChatGPT a question, it uses a technology called a large language model (L.L.M.) to predict the next word in a sequence and form a response.
But, when you turn on the code interpreter, ChatGPT creates and runs a piece of software code to get the answer. OpenAI states that this allows the chatbot to do new things, like making complex calculations and creating diagrams from user-given data.
Some believe that the code interpreter can reduce errors, a common issue with L.L.M.s. Ethan Mollick, an associate professor at the University of Pennsylvania, said after testing the code interpreter for two months, “The code clearly does what it’s supposed to.”
Uses of the Code Interpreter
The main use of the code interpreter is analyzing data. For instance, if you ask ChatGPT to “find interesting points in this data,” it can go through specific data like financial, health, or location details and provide insights. Financial professionals use this tool for tasks such as analyzing stock prices and making budgets.
Researchers also use this tool for unique data visuals. Dr. Mollick recently used the code interpreter to make a 3D chart of the Billboard Hot 100 list and an animated map of all the lighthouses in the US. Others have used the tool to change file formats, like turning pictures into videos or PDFs into images.
But, Arvind Narayanan, a computer science professor at Princeton University, warns about relying too much on the code interpreter for data analysis. He points out that AI can sometimes give wrong results and spread misinformation. He emphasizes, “Analyzing data properly requires a lot of critical thinking.”
