The Company Behind ChatGPT – OpenAI

The Company Behind ChatGPT - OpenAI

You might be curious to know about the inventor of ChatGPT. 

San Francisco-headquartered AI and research company ‘OpenAI’ launched ChatGPT on 30th November 2022. 

Evolution Of OpenAI

OpenAI was launched in 2015 by Elon Musk, Sam Altman, and others. It was a not-for-profit organization during the initial days, which was changed late. 

Later in 2019, the company’s status changed from a not-for-profit to capped profit (an amalgamation of profit and non-profit) company. 

In 2019, the company raised 1 billion from tech-giant Microsoft. 

Is Elon Musk Still Associated With OpenAI?

No, Elon Musk is not associated with ChatGPT. In 2018, Musk resigned from the board of directors due to possible conflict. 

Let’s see what Musk tweeted back in 2020 about OpenAI – I have no control & only very limited insight into OpenAI. Confidence in Dario for safety is not high.

Let’s take a look at the recent Tweet from Musk – 

Not surprising, as I just learned that OpenAI had access to the Twitter database for training. I put that on pause for now. 

Need to understand more about governance structure & revenue plans going forward.

OpenAI was started as an open-source & non-profit. Neither is still true.

What Is ChatGPT?

What Is ChatGPT?

The aim of launching ChatGPT is to simulate human-like conversation through a bot. 

GPT stands for Generative Pre-training Transformer and was developed with the help of a large learning model. 

A Large Learning Model is an AI-Powered mechanism that aims to produce human-like responses predicting the next word in a sentence.

Using deep learning, GPT-3.5 is an exciting language model that ChatGPT employs to process human-authored text. The older version only accepted text commands and responded with robot-generated text. 

ChatGPT or GPT 3.5, however, is more interesting because it can compose both captivating prose and poetic verse. It also remembers what was said in the past and encourages the user to say it again.

What Can You Do With ChatGPT?

The bot is capable of executing tasks like:

  • Answering a question through the chat and producing more realistic human-like responses. 
  • If you’re a video content creator, you can outline your script through this bot. 
  • It allows you to brainstorm content and keyword ideas. 
  • You can also create an email response with it. 
  • Digital marketers can design their ad copies with the help of this bot. 
  • You can translate text into multiple languages. 
  • Finally, you can create content marketing resources such as blogs or social media captions.

Preparing Outreach Emails

Read This Before You Use ChatGPT For SEO

Are you planning to make the most out of ChatGPT for SEO? Before making any efforts, you should consider the following points into consideration. 

(i) AI-generated Violates Guidelines 

Google’s John Muller has cleared its stance that AI-generated content is spam to Google. 

Here is what he said – “For us these would, essentially, still fall into the category of automatically generated content which is something we’ve had in the Webmaster Guidelines since almost the beginning.

And people have been automatically generating content in lots of different ways. And for us, if you’re using machine learning tools to generate your content, it’s essentially the same as if you’re just shuffling words around, or looking up synonyms, or doing the translation tricks that people used to do. Those kinds of things.

My suspicion is maybe the quality of content is a little bit better than the really old-school tools, but for us, it’s still automatically generated content, and that means for us it’s still against the Webmaster Guidelines. So we would consider that to be spam.”

(ii) AI-Backed Content Is Detectable 

Google has been striving for many years to detect AI-generated content. 

A lot many people argue that there is no way to detect AI-detected content. 

Even if you think that AI-generated content can bypass algorithm detection, Google has already built the solution. 

For decades, researchers have been exploring ways to discover machine-generated content, such as content translated from another language. 

(iii) Can Come With Watermark In The Future 

Some experts argue that in the future, ChatGPT can come with Watermark. 

So in the next version of ChatGPT, you can expect watermarking. 

Watermarked content is easily detectable and can lead to search engine penalties

General Limitations Of ChatGPT

Everything comes with its own drawbacks. Similarly, ChatGPT has its own limitations. 

(i) Limited Knowledge Up To 2021

The database of ChatGPT doesn’t hold data that is before 2021. So if you’re planning to fetch current facts, data, and reports – you’re not going to get it here. 

To test this, we searched – “Who is the current PM of the UK ?”

The bot replied – “Boris Johnson”.

Limited Knowledge Upto 2021

And that is absolutely wrong. The current PM of the UK is Rishi Sunak. 

From this experiment, it’s evident that it can’t produce information from 2022 or even 2023. 

(ii) Biased Responses 

At the end of the day, ChatGPT is a bot. And it’s common sense that an AI bot can’t be 100% accurate. The answer that it produces is a combination of millions or even billions of websites. 

Yes, we agree that ChatGPT or any other AI-generated bot can generate informative content, but it lacks-

  • Context
  • Personalization
  • Depth
  • Uniqueness
  • Informal tone
  • Nuances in conversation
  • Arguments

It can’t write something that it hasn’t been trained on. So you can’t blindly go by the answers produced by this bot. All you can do is draw references from it and rewrite it on your own. 

(iii) OpenAI’s Official Explanations – ChatGPT’s Drawbacks 

Let’s Quote from OpenAI’s official statement about the potential drawbacks of ChatGPT-

ChatGPT sometimes writes plausible-sounding but incorrect or nonsensical answers. Fixing this issue is challenging, as: (1) during RL training, there’s currently no source of truth; (2) training the model to be more cautious causes it to decline questions that it can answer correctly; and (3) supervised training misleads the model because the ideal answer depends on the model knows, rather than what the human demonstrator knows.

ChatGPT is sensitive to tweaks to the input phrasing or attempting the same prompt multiple times. For example, given one phrasing of a question, the model can claim not to know the answer, but given a slight rephrase, can answer correctly.

The model is often excessively verbose and overuses certain phrases, such as restating that it’s a language model trained by OpenAI. These issues arise from biases in the training data (trainers prefer longer answers that look more comprehensive) and well-known over-optimization issues. 

Ideally, the model would ask clarifying questions when the user provided an ambiguous query. Instead, our current models usually guess what the user intended.

While we’ve made efforts to make the model refuse inappropriate requests, it will sometimes respond to harmful instructions or exhibit biased behavior. We’re using the Moderation API to warn or block certain types of unsafe content, but we expect it to have some false negatives and positives for now. We’re eager to collect user feedback to aid our ongoing work to improve this system.

Reviews Of ChatGPT

Since its inception, ChatGPT has created a lot of buzzes. Some people are in favor of this bot, whereas some have extensively criticized this tool. 

Positive Reviews

  • New York Times penned “the best artificial intelligence chatbot ever released to the general public”.
  • According to the Guardian, ChatGPT can create “impressively detailed” and “human-like” text.
  • According to the Atlantic, ChatGPT is “Breakthroughs of the Year” for 2022”.
  • Cited The Information, “Microsoft Binge is planning to incorporate optional ChatGPT functionality by 2023.”
  • If we go by New York Times – Google has internally raised alarming concerns among its core members. 
  • “ChatGPT is the general public’s first hands-on introduction to how powerful modern AI has gotten, and as a result, many of us are (stunned)” and that “ChatGPT is smart enough to be useful despite its flaws” – Kelsey Piper from the Fox website has quoted this. 

Negative Reviews 

Microsoft CEO Satya Nadela has recently inquired about the most popular South Indian breakfast on ChatGPT. In response, the bot has shared – idli, doa, vada, and biryani. He disagreed with the answer, and later, the chatbot accepted it was a mistake – “You are right. It is not classified as a tiffin dish in south India.” Mr. Nadela further added – “You cannot insult me by saying Biryani is a breakfast item.” The chatbot apologizes, “I’m sorry.” 

The question-answering platform Stack Overflow banned the use of ChatGPT for generating answers to questions. 

Noted Economist Tyler Cowen expressed his concern that writing auto-generated comments can negatively hamper the decision-making process. 

Microsoft’s Association With ChatGPT

Microsoft’s Association With ChatGPT

Microsoft is set to make Bing a mighty search engine with the collaboration of OpenAI’s groundbreaking ChatGPT chatbot technology! 

After investing $1 billion in OpenAI in 2019, the two organizations have been striving jointly to streamline GPT into Bing – and the new feature is expected to launch by the end of March. 

This will give Microsoft a huge edge over Google and could help Bing evolve into a top search engine.

Conclusion – Will ChatGPT Replace Google? 

For the time being, the answer is NO. But why?Google is a search engine, whereas ChatGPT is a human replacement AI. So there is a clear distinction between the core functionality of both.

Google works around its entire ecosystem

  • Google Maps

  • Gmail

  • Google Drive

  • Google Sheets

  • Google Slide

  • Google ads are also a deadly weapon for marketers

So, it’s seemingly impossible that ChatGPT can replace everything right away.

Open will launch paid version:

Another important aspect of this conversation is that Google is free for everyone. But ChatGPT is planning to launch its paid version in the future. 

  • The pro version of ChatGPT will be faster and more reliable. 

  • There won’t be any blackout period.

  • We can probably experience a 2X daily message limit. 

Look, you never know what is going to happen in the future. But, for the time being, it sounds far-fetched that Google will be replaced by a bot entirely.

Who knows that in the future, we can experience a hybrid model of the search feature and AI chatbots.
