The best part about ChatGPT is that it’s free at the moment. This might change in the very near future, though. Instead of asking for clarification on ambiguous questions, the model just guesses what your question means, which can lead to unintended responses to questions. This limitation has already led developer question-and-answer site StackOverflow to at least temporarily ban ChatGPT-generated responses to questions.
This time, the AI is not only capable of producing text, but also writing code and helping programmers understand code. Besides, it can write books, lyrics, blog posts, and such.
Even though the tool is impressive and seemingly could replace coders and content creators, it still has a lot of question marks.
For example, ChatGPT has a tendency to provide users with inaccurate data in a convincing manner. Besides, it repeats itself and doesn’t know answers to questions of events after 2021.
“The primary problem is that while the answers that ChatGPT produces have a high rate of being incorrect, they typically look like they might be good and the answers are very easy to produce,” say Stack Overflow moderators in a post.
Critics argue that these tools are just very good at putting words into an order that makes sense from a statistical point of view, but they cannot understand the meaning or know whether the statements it makes are correct.
