Following in the footsteps of art-generating artificial intelligence (AI) systems like Dall-E and Midjourney,

For a more detailed description, you could say that ChatGPT is a language model that uses a transformer neural network architecture. It’s trained on a large corpus of text data, such as books and articles, and learns to predict the next word in a sentence. When given a prompt, such as a question or a partial sentence, ChatGPT uses its knowledge of the training data to generate a response. The generated response may not always be perfect, but it’s often able to understand the context of the prompt and respond in a way that is relevant and coherent.

Surprise: the explanation above came straight from the artificial brain of ChatGPT itself, an answer to the command: “Explain how ChatGPT works."

The AI model is becoming a source of contention in universities – where students have been caught handing in essays written by the bot – and adding fuel to the ongoing fiery discourse surrounding the role of AI in the creative industries. ChatGPT has already been used to create a recent viral YouTube ad for Canadian actor Ryan Reynolds’ network company Mint Mobile, and some suggest it could eventually even replace search engines like Google.

AI is already embedded into applications consumers use every day, from social media feeds to voice assistants and email spam filters. As such, a basic understanding of its benefits and setbacks is crucial for brands that want to stay ahead of the curve.
