ChatGPT is an AI by OpenAI that can write texts like a human. MeinMMO introduces you to artificial intelligence in more detail and explains how and for what purpose you can use it. Can you use ChatGPT in German, what does ChatGPT cost and who owns OpenAI?

ChatGPT is considered a big surprise because it can write texts that could also come from humans. Some are enthusiastic, others are insecure and worried about such abilities. But what is ChatGPT anyway and who is behind it?

ChatGPT – What is it and who invented it?

What is ChatGPT? ChatGPT is a language model developed and trained by the company OpenAI. It can be used to do natural language tasks like generating text, answering questions, and translating text.

Who is behind ChatGPT? OpenAI, the company behind ChatGPT, is a US company dedicated to researching AI. In December 2022, OpenAI introduced the artificial intelligence ChatGPT. This in turn is based on GPT-3, an in-house development.

OpenAI is mainly financed by donations, the largest donors are Elon Musk and Microsoft. By the way, Microsoft is working on its own AI, which could still be interesting for gamers in the future:

Using ChatGPT – What can it do and what are the limitations?

What can ChatGPT do?

  • Text Generation: The model may be able to generate entire sentences or paragraphs based on a given initial text. These include novels, scientific texts or songs.
  • Answering Questions: ChatGPT can be used to answer questions based on a given textual context.
  • Translation: The model can also be used to translate text from one language to another.
  • Text Summary: ChatGPT can be used to summarize a given text.
  • Programming: ChatGPT can create simple programs or check existing code for errors.
  • What restrictions are there?

  • Like any other artificial intelligence, ChatGPT can also make mistakes or provide undesirable results when trained on incomplete or inaccurate data.
  • ChatGPT can also have problems when questions are very complex or abstract.
  • It may also have trouble understanding cultural or regional differences, especially if it has been trained to specialize in a particular geographic area or language.
  • By the way, a user made a “girlfriend” with the help of ChatGPT, but things didn’t end well:

    ChatGPT – Pricing and Registration

    How to use ChatGPT? If you want to use the AI, go directly to the manufacturer’s official website. Here you have to register: Either you use an existing Google or Microsoft account or create a new account with an email address.

    If you create an account with an email address, you must confirm the email. In the next step, you will need a cell phone number for verification. If that worked, you successfully log into the AI ​​mask and can start right away.

    How much does ChatGPT cost? ChatGPT is initially free for private users. So far there are no restrictions on how much and what you can ask the AI. However, if the servers are busy, it may take some time for the answer or there is an error message (“blackout”).

    There is already a fee-based model for companies that has to be negotiated with OpenAI. The cost depends on factors such as the volume of textual data the model is expected to process, the specific application or use case, and the level of support and customization required.

    In the meantime, however, OpenAI has also announced a paid version, “ChatGPT-Professional”, for private individuals. There is now a queue where you can register. You can register via the official Discord channel and the form provided there. A price is not yet known for the paid version, but at least some features (via docs.google.com):

  • A faster program with fewer error messages and crashes.
  • A higher limit of daily requests.
  • Ability to make multiple requests at the same time.
  • ChatGPT review

    Why are some criticizing the AI? ChatGPT and other AI systems are currently being criticized. Because some fear that such AI bots could replace human work (via zdnet.com). Because a chatbot can efficiently transcribe an article in a matter of seconds, while it would take a real human to do it much longer (via theguardian.com).

    Some even fear that such chatbots can encourage cheating. Because the AI ​​writes a complete essay for students to write in seconds. Or, in the worst case, develop chemical weapons for evil purposes.

    Another point of criticism is that the AI ​​sells many answers as plausible, even if it is misinformation. Here, however, the AI ​​itself points out that there can sometimes be “plausible-sounding, but incorrect or nonsensical answers”.

    More on AIs: The AI ​​Midjourney has also caused a sensation in recent months. Because this can generate completely new images from just a few terms or individual sentences. And that should also play a major role for games in the future:
