The age of AI has arrived – Chat GPT
Artificial Intelligence is a field of computer science that broadly refers to machines that can perform tasks that require human intelligence, such as learning, reasoning, and analysis. And the most notable recent addition to the AI field is undoubtedly Chat GPT. it gained more than 1 million users in just five days after its launch in November 2022, and even more than 100 million users in three months (Fabio, 2023). chat GPT is a language model trained by Open AI (2023) to interact with the user in a conversational form and based on dialogue. Chat GPT is a language model trained by (2023) to interact with users in the form of a dialogue, and based on the dialogue, Chat GPT can answer follow-up questions, admit its mistakes and reject inappropriate requests. This means that Chat will play a huge role in people’s daily life and work, and it can be used in the fields of education, healthcare and technology.
Who Changed Our Lifestyle？
Text Generation – Travelling Assistant
ChatGPT’s text generation capabilities are known to answer a wide range of questions. When people use Chat in the planning of travel tips, there will be unexpected results. ChatGPT can quickly plan people’s travels based on the information in its database and provide information about local etiquette and customs or how to stay safe in the area, adjust and improvements according to the user’s needs, and provide personalized advice. People can refer to this planner and then go back to the guide, which undoubtedly greatly reduces the time spent on creating the guide for travelers and allows them to know more about the destination they are travelling to. Mansell (2020) mentions the emergence of several cross-generational platforms that have the potential to bring about new economic models and opportunities. More and more hotels restaurants and airline companies are also deploying the use of ChatGPT to handle customer requests like reservations (Revfine, 2023). Perhaps in the future it is not impossible to book hotels directly through Chat while letting Chat generate travel plans.
Chat GPT and Students, Who Controls Who?
In education, ChatGPT is based on its large database that can answer questions from students from all fields, and it has become popular with a wide range of students as a result. According to Fuchs (2023), the second largest group of users of Chat GPT is students, and it can help keep students interested in the course material and make them more connected to their learning experience. It can give students ideas for learning in certain subjects. However, the problem with Chat is also obvious, Chat’s answers seem to be correct, but in fact they are often incorrect. Fuchs (2023) mentions that Chat GPT is based on an NLP model, and that the accuracy of its questions depends heavily on the quality and diversity of the training data, and that the system may have difficulty understanding the nuances of human language, which can lead to misunderstandings and incorrect responses. . Some however feel that ChatGPT will revolutionize education in a positive way rather than promoting cheating and plagiarism. Tytuła (2023) argues that interacting with Chat and getting the right answer requires critical thinking. So the pros and cons of Chat for the student body depend on how students use it, whether they are controlled by Chat or control ChatGPT.
ChatGPT and Works
ChatGPT not only has a vital impact on people’s lives, but also has the ability to increase productivity and reduce repetitive tasks. ChatGPT is trained to mimic the way the human brain’s mind operates and can process large amounts of data to carry out daily tasks (Chuang Kwan, 2023). The size of the role played by AI varies depending on the nature of the job. The job of a programmer is a typical example. Programmers need to constantly organize code and data. But none of them are perfect and do not make any mistakes. And ChatGPT can help programmers sift through the wrong code. This can greatly reduce the repetitive work of programmers. Providing more time to push their innovative work. Education, healthcare, technology, and employment are central to a country’s development efforts. And ChatGPT is invariably influencing the development of these four segments.
Teacher’s Right-hand Man
ChatGPT can not only be used by students but can also be a powerful assistant for teachers. ChatGPT is a very valuable tool for teachers. It can assist teachers throughout the entire teaching and learning process. From lesson planning, to exams, to assessments, to evaluations and individualized educational work for different students (Kwan, 2023). Firstly, ChatGPT can help teachers to develop a complete lesson plan and teach with the latest teaching concepts and knowledge to keep up with the times. Secondly, ChatGPT can help teachers to find out the individual needs and interests of students and teach them according to their needs. Because ChatGPT can use web technology to comprehensively analyze students’ performance, interests and learning styles. (Xiaoming, 2023). However, overuse of ChatGPT to assess students may lead teachers to ignore students’ state of mind and performance in daily life. And teachers not only need to provide students with academic help, but also press to provide students with emotional support. Excessive use of AI assessment can reduce the development of students in terms of interpersonal and communication skills. At the same time, Sallam argues that ChatGPT is compiled and trained from a large amount of data and does not have access to the students themselves. So it may be racially biased or contain inaccurately analyzed information. Teachers need to use ChatGPT correctly and appropriately in their teaching activities and not rely on it too much.
ChatGPT is also leading a revolution in clinical medical technology. ChatGPT can play an important role in clinical medicine. The development of clinical practice needs to rely on data analysis, batch clinical outcome studies. And ChatGPT as artificial intelligence can help humans in some cases to perform similar tasks as data analysis, image acquisition and interpretation (William, 2023). This can save a lot of human labor and allow them to focus on deeper research. In addition to this, ChatGPT has a very high potential in drugs. It can recognize and break down chemical formulas as well as the molecular structure of drugs, helping people to quickly find the key points for treating diseases (Williams, 2023). However, ChatGPT is used more to assist in medical treatment rather than being able to directly diagnose a patient’s disease. This is because it cannot be analyzed by the patient’s combined symptoms, mood and state. And ChatGPT is not trained in specific medical knowledge, so it cannot pass the life support exam (John, 2023). This shows that ChatGPT is not able to replace the doctor to analyze the specific symptoms of the patient and it is not equipped to deal with such a complex task as clinical practice. Therefore, in the medical field, ChatGPT should be used appropriately for medical research rather than directly replacing doctors in clinical practice.
Facing up to AI
Fuchs (2023) mentions that ChatGPT is limited by the fact that its database has certain information limitations, so it gives some wrong answers. It may not matter if the wrong answers are found and changed in time, but in some cases the fabricated information has caused public figures to be vilified. For instance, an Australian mayor is bringing a defamation suit against OpenAI unless it corrects ChatGPT’s false claim that he was convicted of bribery and sentenced to 30 months in prison (Khatsenkova, 2023). And previously two attorneys in the United States who had been practicing for many years were fined for handling legal matters through ChatGPT and submitting false citations of legal cases in court. These two incidents undoubtedly expose the biggest drawback of ChatGPT, the potential for its false information to have a substantial impact on society and the risk of triggering an ethical crisis. So how to use ChatGPT properly is still a matter for people to ponder over.
