Frequently asked questions
What is an AI chatbot?
An AI chatbot is a type of software designed to interact with humans in their natural language. These chatbots are usually conversational agents, deployed on various platforms, like websites, apps, or messaging platforms, to simulate human-like conversation and provide assistance.
What is the difference between an AI chatbot and an AI writer?
The main difference lies in their use cases: chatbots are used for interactive conversations and real-time responses, while AI writers are used for generating longer, more complex pieces of text. There's some overlap, of course, especially with advanced models like GPT-4 that can perform tasks suited to both chatbots and AI writers.
What is the best alternative to ChatGPT?
Google's response to ChatGPT, Bard uses a combination of two language models – Language Model for Dialogue Applications (LaMDA) and Pathways Language Model (PaLM). This combination enhances Bard's math and logic capabilities.
Plus, Google regularly updates Bard's features and has even upgraded it to write code. It functions as a decent research tool that you can hold a conversation with, even if it sometimes gets things wrong. And Google will continue to expand its feature set over time.

What are the best prompts for ChatGPT?
The "best" prompts for ChatGPT will largely depend on what you're trying to accomplish, as the language model is versatile and can handle a wide range of requests. However, here are some general categories of prompts and examples within each that typically yield useful or interesting responses:
Information and fact-checking: "What is the capital of Australia?"
Elaboration and explanation: "Can you explain the theory of relativity in simple terms?"
Ideation and brainstorming: "Can you suggest some unique ideas for a fantasy short story?"
Creative writing: "Can you write a short story about a pirate meeting a mermaid for the first time?"
Learning and tutoring: "Can you help me understand the Pythagorean theorem?"
Rewriting and rephrasing: "Rephrase this as a formal sentence: 'I can't make it to the conference because something came up'"
Coding help: "Explain what this Python code will do: [Insert code]?"

How do I use ChatGPT for writing content?
Here are some steps you can follow:
Drafting. Start by asking ChatGPT to help you draft a piece of content. You can be as specific or general as you like with your prompt.
Expanding and refining. Once you have a draft, you can ask ChatGPT to expand on certain points or help you refine the language.
Brainstorming ideas. ChatGPT can also help you brainstorm ideas for your content. For example: "Suggest some subtopics for a blog post about video editing."
Editing and proofreading. Finally, once you've written your content, simply provide the text and ask ChatGPT to check it for any grammatical errors or awkward phrasing.

Is it possible to use ChatGPT on mobile?
Yes, there is a ChatGPT application available for iPhone via the App Store. And as of this writing, OpenAI is currently working on an app for Android users. There are also multiple mobile API’s available to give you access.
Can ChatGPT refuse to answer the prompts?
Yes, ChatGPT can refuse to respond to certain prompts, typically in these categories:
Inappropriate or offensive content
Personal data requests
Harmful or dangerous activities
Legal and medical advice
Note that while measures are in place, they may not be perfect. And occasionally inappropriate content may get through, or safe and appropriate content may be incorrectly blocked.
Does ChatGPT give wrong answers?
Yes, ChatGPT can sometimes provide incorrect or misleading information. OpenAI trained their model on a diverse range of internet text, but it doesn't know specific documents or sources, so it can't access or retrieve the latest or most accurate data from the internet.
Therefore, you may get answers with:
Misinterpretation of the question
Lack of source verification
While ChatGPT is a powerful tool, it's important to cross-verify the information provided, especially when it comes to critical or important topics. It's not a substitute for professional advice or fact-checked information from reliable sources.
Will the conversations with ChatGPT be used for training?
Yes, however, you can turn off chat history in your settings to stop data sharing and prevent OpenAI from using your data.
How much does the ChatGPT app cost?
The ChatGPT application is free as long as you’re willing to use version 3.5. You’ll need to pay $20/month for a ChatGPT Plus subscription to gain access to version 4 and additional features.
Where does ChatGPT get its data from?
OpenAI trained its models on a large amount of human data from the internet – including conversations. They optimized that data for dialogue using a proprietary tool called Reinforcement Learning with Human Feedback (RLHF). This uses human demonstrations and preference comparisons to guide the model toward desired behavior.
Can I use ChatGPT like Google Search?
No, a language model is not a search engine. However, you can use the ChatGPT Chrome extension to leverage ChatGPT to enhance your Google searches.
