Chat GPT has reached new heights of popularity in the last few months – and it is no surprise! The online language model can do some pretty mind-boggling stuff, but who created Chat GPT?
For those who aren’t familiar, Chat GPT is an artificial intelligence model which has been available to the public since the end of November. The model is capable of understanding and responding to human dialogue in a very sophisticated and speedy manner.
You can ask the model to do pretty much anything. It even has the ability to write poetry, summarize long texts, create code and so much more.
Chat GPT is owned and developed by AI research and deployment company, OpenAI. The organization is headquartered in San Francisco and was founded by some prominent Silicon Valley players – including Musk, Altman, Thiel, and Linkedin cofounder Reid Hoffman.
Following its creation in 2015, Elon Musk has since resigned from OpenAI’s board to avoid conflicting developments occurring in his other company Tesla.
Since its introduction last year, the AI bot has been sparking various concerns about people using artificial intelligence to replace human writing. The largest concern is around students using the model to compose essays and assignments. Universities and anti-cheating software firms are already playing a game of cat-and-mouse, trying to develop tools to combat this. However, they seem to be unsuccessful as of late.
Is OpenAI owned by Microsoft?
Back in 2019, OpenAI joined forces with tech giant Microsoft. Microsoft supported OpenAI’s efforts by providing a one billion dollar funding boost in exchange for an exclusive license to the AI firm’s technology. There’s even talk of Microsoft increasing their investment to a whopping sum of ten billion dollars!
This partnership is likely to pose a large threat to Google’s AI firm, DeepMind. There is already talk that Google will release its version of an AI chatbot, which is likely to be a direct rival to Chat GPT.
Chat GPT has become wildly popular with users across the globe. The tech firm, OpenAI, has done an outstanding job of delivering AI technology to the public. But what is next for the company?
Rumor has it that the organization is seeking to expand into robotics and has already formed partnerships with major players in the tech industry. It appears that OpenAI plans to utilize its capabilities for these companies, making its AI technology widespread.
