OpenAI’s ChatGPT has taken the world by storm with its ability to provide solutions to complex problems almost instantly with nothing more than a text prompt. Until yesterday, ChatGPT was based on GPT-3.5, a deep learning language model that was trained on an impressive 175 billion parameters. Now it is based on GPT-4, which is able to solve even more complex problems with greater accuracy (40% more likely to give correct answers). It is also capable of receiving images as the basis of interaction instead of just text. While the company chose not to reveal how great the GPT-4 is, they claim it scored in the 88th percentile on a variety of tests, including the Uniform Bar Exam, LSAT, SAT Math, and SAT Evidence Based Reading & Writing exams.
ChatGPT is extremely capable, but its answers depend heavily on the questions or prompts you enter. In other words, the better you describe and frame the problem/question, the better the results. We’re already starting to see companies demand that new hires not only know how to use ChatGPT, but also how to get the most out of it.
That being said, we’d love to hear how Slashdotters use the chatbot. What are your favorite tips? Have you used it to become more productive at work? What about coding? Please also share specific tips to help us get similar results.
