How ChatGPT can revolutionize the way we solve problems
RAPID CITY, S.D. – Artificial Intelligence (AI) is changing the way we interact with technology and solve problems. Recently AI has become a big topic of discussion with programs like ChatGPT popping up.
“Artificial Intelligence is really the start of striving towards really human intelligence and actually allowing for a machine to match human intelligence,” Brian Butterfield, a computer science and electrical engineer Lecturer with SD Mines, explained.
What even is Chat GPT?
Well, it’s best if ChatGPT speaks for itself.
This portion was written by ChatGPT:
ChatGPT is a computer program that uses advanced Artificial Intelligence (AI) to understand and respond to natural language text. Think of it as a robot that can hold conversations with you, just like a human would. It’s trained on a massive amount of text data, so it can answer questions, tell jokes, and even write creative stories. The goal of ChatGPT is to make it easier for people to communicate with computers, and to make computers seem more like people.
ChatGPT is developed by a company called Open AI, who is focused on ethical generative AI. Though it is trained using text data from the internet, it is possible that some responses are harmful or inappropriate. ChatGPT uses an extremely large database of information to generate its outputs, similar to how Google generates its search results.
You can learn more about it from Open AI’s website, and even try it out for yourself.
How can it be used?
ChatGPT can also be used to solve complex problems and make data-driven decisions.
“In every sector and every industry has a potential for a data problem with a data solution that either an Artificial Intelligence or a machine learning model can help make them help make better decisions,” said Butterfield.
The potential of ChatGPT isn’t just limited to big companies, even students are finding success with using it as a tool.
“A student just last week spent a long time trying to find a solution to a problem and actually open up ChatGPT and within a short period of time found a very elegant solution and that so that’s really a pretty significant upside,” Butterfield said.
AI has the potential to revolutionize the way we solve problems, but the existence of ChatGPT presents a dilemma for many educators.
“The more that we can kind of encourage our students to use it appropriately and in the right context, I think that’s where the value comes into play,” Butterfield explained.
Like the internet, it can be a very useful tool, as long as guidelines are in place.
“It’s a lot easier from my seat to actually encourage the use and to make sure and establish those guardrails and establish the rules and the regulation around using it than it is to combat it,” said Butterfield.
