Conversation With An AI (Artificial Intelligence)
ChatGPT was released to the public in November 2022 and the tech industry has been in a frenzy ever since. Yet, this new tool is not just for the geek; businesses have been using it to increase their productivity and profit. Even high school and college students have been using it to improve their papers and grades. That’s why you should be looking into it and see how it can improve your business or career.
Instead of interviewing an expert, we decided to interview ChatGPT itself to find out how smart it really is. These are the questions and answers word for word of our conversation, except for the words in parentheses that have been added for context.
1804 Magazine: what's your name (although I forgot to put the question mark, it does recognize that it is a question)
ChatGPT: I am ChatGPT, a language model developed by OpenAI.
1804 Magazine: explain what you do as speaking to a computer illiterate (been specific in your prompt is important. I asked this question many times and I got some complicated answers with a lot of technical terms. For simple answers you can specify a level such as “computer illiterate” “3rd grader” etc. The AI will adapt its answers)
ChatGPT: I am an AI language model created by OpenAI. My job is to respond to questions and generate text based on the information I've been trained on. Think of me like a very smart librarian who can answer almost any question you ask, and even write stories, articles, or poems for you.
So, let's say you want to know the capital of France, you would ask me and I would tell you that it is Paris. Or if you want to know the weather tomorrow, you can ask me that too and I'll do my best to give you a helpful answer. I can answer many different types of questions, and my responses are generated just for you in real-time.
It's a lot like talking to a human, but I don't get tired or take breaks, and I can process information much faster. You can think of me as a super-intelligent helper that's always here to answer your questions.
1804 Magazine: What is "artificial intelligence"? explain in terms a computer illiterate would understand
ChatGPT: Artificial intelligence, or AI for short, is a type of computer technology that is designed to perform tasks that typically require human intelligence, such as recognizing speech, making decisions, and solving problems. It does this by using algorithms and computer programs that are designed to analyze and learn from large amounts of data, allowing the computer to make predictions or perform actions based on that data without being specifically programmed for every task.
For example, some AI technology can recognize the faces of people in a photo, or even drive a car by analyzing its surroundings and making decisions based on that information.
Overall, AI is a way to make computers more intelligent and capable of performing complex tasks that would otherwise require human intelligence.
1804 Magazine: write a poem for my wife in 100 words (each answer is generated in a few seconds)
ChatGPT: My dearest wife, you light up my life,
With your laughter and love, you make everything right.
In your arms, I feel safe and warm,
You are the beat of my heart, the love of my form.
With each day that passes by,
My love for you continues to multiply.
You are my sun, my moon, my stars,
Forever with you, my heart is never afar.
In your eyes, I see a love so true,
In your smile, I find a heaven so bright and blue.
My love, I thank the stars above,
For the gift of you, my cherished dove.
Forever and always, my heart will be yours,
Together we'll face all life's challenges and chores.
I love you more each day,
My beautiful wife, in every way.
(Pretty lovely poem don’t you think, although it’s actually 139 words? Good enough for me)

1804 Magazine: explain API as speaking to a 5th grader
ChatGPT: An API is like a helper for computers. Just like you ask your mom or dad for help with something, computers can use an API to ask other computers for help with things they can't do by themselves.
Let's say you want to play a video game on your phone. You click on the app and the game starts. The app and the game are like two computers talking to each other. The app is asking the game for help to play the game on your phone. The game is giving the app the information it needs to play the game.
The way they talk to each other is called an API. It's like a secret code that only the app and the game understand. With the help of the API, the app and the game can work together and you can play the game on your phone.
In a similar way, computers can use APIs to talk to other computers and share information. This helps them do things more efficiently and makes it easier for people to access and use information from different sources.

1804 Magazine: what human languages do you know?
ChatGPT: As a language model developed by OpenAI, I have been trained on a diverse range of human languages, including:
English, Spanish, German, French, Italian, Portuguese, Dutch, Russian, Arabic, Chinese (Simplified and Traditional), Japanese, Korean, Hindi, Bengali, Indonesian, and many more.
While I have been trained on a wide range of languages, my proficiency in each language will vary depending on the amount and quality of training data I received in that language. However, I am capable of understanding and generating text in many different languages and can answer questions, provide information, and carry out various language processing tasks in those languages.
1804 Magazine: kijan ou rele? (I really had to ask this question in Haitian Creole, so exiting!)
ChatGPT: Mwen se yon modèl langaj nan OpenAI. Mwen pa gen yon konsyans oswa yon idantite moun. Mwen sèlman ap travay pou reponn kesyon yo ak bay enfòmasyon sou diferan sijè yo.
1804 Magazine: thanks for answering my questions today
ChatGPT: You're welcome! I'm always here to help and answer any questions you may have. Don't hesitate to reach out if there's anything else you'd like to know. Have a great day!
Bear in mind, ChatGPT has some limitations and is still experimental. This conversation took place in January 2023 using GPT 3.5 which has been trained up until 2021. That is ChatGPT is not a reliable tool if you want information about current events. For example, I asked this question “who's the NBA champion?” this was ChatGPT’s answer, “I'm sorry, my training data only goes up until 2021, and I don't have information on the current NBA champion.”
GPT 4.0 is currently in the work and based on the hypes it may be released soon. Can’t wait!
