ChatGPT, the popular and headline-grabbing chatbot developed by OpenAI, has drawn controversy for both its ability and for giving incorrect responses that seem legitimate. However, it is important to note that ChatGPT is a preview and will get better. And that brings us to an update that OpenAI is rolling out that aims to improve the AI model.

This is a brief changelog where OpenAI says that it is simply improving ChatGPT to provide more accurate responses across topics. The developer says it is focusing on improving “factuality.” There is also a new feature that allows users to stop generating responses from the AI.

  • “We made more improvements to the ChatGPT model! It should be generally better across a wide range of topics and has improved factuality.
  • Stop generating: Based on your feedback, we’ve added the ability to stop generating ChatGPT’s response.”

OpenAI has recently said it plans to eventually create a premium version of ChatGPT that will come with a fee. Known as ChatGPT Professional, the version will sit alongside the regular free bot. In a waitlist OpenAI published, the company says it will have several pro-level benefits including faster responses, unlimited messages, and constant availability (ChatGPT currently has “blackouts”).

Controversial Chatbot

ChatGPT is an OpenAI project that is built on top of the GPT-3 autocomplete text generator, part of the GPT-3 AI API that was built in collaboration with Microsoft. A demo of the chatbot has been available from OpenAI here (login required) since November.

It seems the future of ChatGPT will be tightly connected to Microsoft. A fresh multi-billion-dollar investment in OpenAI means Microsoft is working to fold GPT models into all of its services. The company is currently working on merging the capabilities of Bing with the ChatGPT chatbot, and integrating OpenAI’s GPT AI engine into Office apps.
