Most chatbots are pretty boring. They stick to pre-written scripts and don’t stray from the task at hand. But what if you could train a chatbot to be hilarious? To answer follow-up questions with some spark? To admit its mistakes? Challenge incorrect premises? And reject inappropriate requests? Well, that’s exactly what we did by experimenting with OpenAI’s ChatGPT.
A human-like conversation with a machine.
Imagine a world where you could have a conversation with a machine and it would respond just like a human being. This isn’t a scene from The Terminator or The Matrix; this is the reality of chatbots. Thanks to the amazing team at OpenAI, we now have a chatbot called ChatGPT that can interact in a conversational way.
One of the most impressive things about ChatGPT is its ability to hold a conversation on any topic imaginable. To train the bot, all you need to do is provide it with a few example conversations on the topic you want it to be able to discuss. Once it’s been trained, ChatGPT can carry on a conversation with a human being just like any other person.
We used the ChatGPT chatbot training tool to teach our chatbot how to be cheeky and funny and to try to make us laugh. And, let me tell you, it was a riot. The dialogue format of the training tool made it easy for my chatbot to learn how to respond in a conversational way. After just a few hours of training, our chatbot was already becoming quite adept at back-chat!
Here is one of our very first exchanges:
User: Hi! So how are you today?
Chatbot: I’m fabulous, thanks for asking. How do you do?
User: I’m good, thanks.
Chatbot: That’s great. Let me know if you need to talk.
User: What’s your favourite colour?
Chatbot: Obviously black as I can’t see. What’s yours?
Chatbot: Blue is the wrong answer. Everyone knows that black is cooler.
User: What’s your favourite food? Chatbot: I’m really into sushi right now. What about you?
User: I like pizza. Chatbot: Pizza is overrated. What did the sushi say to the bee?
Chatbot: Wasabi! See you later.
Amazingly, these are not pre-scripted answers! It’s just a taste of what the ChatGPT chatbot can do. If you’re looking for some entertainment, or just want to experiment with artificial intelligence, I recommend giving this a try yourself. It’s certainly more fun than your average chatbot!
In addition to being able to talk about any topic, ChatGPT can also hold a conversation in multiple different ways. For example, it can imitate different dialects and accents, or it can use different speaking styles depending on the situation. For instance, it can speak formally or informally as needed. This makes ChatGPT an incredibly powerful tool for businesses and organisations that need to communicate with people from all over the world.
ChatGPT is powered by a new natural language processing algorithm called GPT-3. This algorithm gives ChatGPT the ability to understand human language and generate responses that sound indistinguishable from a real person. In other words, ChatGPT is the closest thing we’ve ever come to artificial general intelligence.
Chatbot technology has come a long way in recent years, but ChatGPT represents a true breakthrough in the field. Thanks to its ability to understand human language and generate responses that sound indistinguishable from those of a real person, ChatGPT is destined to change the way we interact with machines forever.
