A few weeks back, OpenAI, an artificial intelligence company released to the public what is arguably one of the most advanced chatbots out there, called ChatGPT. The app is capable of answering questions and generating text on virtually any topic, and it appears to have intelligence as well. ChatGPT is based on what is known as the Large Language Model (LLM). These models aim to attempt to describe the different dynamics that can occur in a language, and thereby solve tasks such as text prediction, sentiment prediction, and entity recognition. To perform these tasks, these models require a large amount of text to train, and thus they can generate nearly as intelligent responses that we can experience when playing with ChatGPT. In the particular case of this chatbot, the language model is GPT3, which is one of the most advanced models at present.
But what are the long-term consequences of using ChatGPT and other advanced chatbot models? Many experts believe that Internet search will be one of the most affected businesses, as it could change the way we find and conduct information online. Instead of searching for specific words, we can ask more direct questions and hope that the chatbot will interpret what exactly we want to know.
In my opinion, search is far from being affected by these chats. For two main reasons: First, this chat is not accurate, and as of today, the information it provides is very limited. It cannot provide information beyond 2021, which makes it a limited tool if we want recent information. Second, if the dotcom crisis of 2001 taught us anything, it’s that industry fundamentals always come up. And the reality is that, as of today, there is no way to include ads in chat search results, and without explicit monetization, it would be difficult to sustain such an expensive service.
Sam Altman, CEO of OpenAI, has said that the cost per ChatGPT chat is pennies on the dollar, which may not sound like much, but keep in mind that it is intended to match the volume of Google searches, which is about more than 8 billion. Daily Search. This means that the cost of running GPTChat would be at least $80 million per day, a very high cost without an explicit monetization campaign.
Next year, we will surely see an explosion of startups that use these models for various uses, and we will see many vendors in Mexico and abroad making statements about how using these models can generate a lot of value in companies. Can be done to do.
However, the stark reality is that these chatbots will not be able to generate value immediately in a company such as a bank or a factory. They certainly have the potential to revolutionize the internet, but it will take a lot of money and a lot of resources to achieve it.
What will be the long term consequences of using chatbots like ChatGPT? Will they really be able to revolutionize the internet and change the way we find information and search online? Only time will tell, but there is no doubt that these advanced chatbots are opening new doors in the world of artificial intelligence and natural language processing. Are we ready for the future in terms of technology and how will we use it in our daily lives?
