ChatGPT: benefits and challenges of its use in healthcare
One of the most exciting recent developments in artificial intelligence technology (AI) is the release of ChatGPT (generative pretrained transformer) by OpenAI in November 2022. This cutting-edge chatbot can answer almost any question and interact in a conversational way, thanks to its ability to process and understand natural language using deep learning algorithms. With 175 billion parameters and trained on a massive dataset obtained from various sources, ChatGPT is just one example of Large Language Models (LLMs) that are driving innovation in the field of AI.
Since its release, ChatGPT has gained immense popularity, leading to other tech giants like Microsoft, Google and Meta developing their own AI products. Microsoft has invested $10 billion in OpenAI and is using the partnership to launch Bing AI, an AI-powered search engine. Google’s AI chat service, Bard, functions similarly to ChatGPT but pulls its information from the web. Bard already has a waiting list of users excited to start using it. Meanwhile, Meta’s latest AI language model, LLaMA, is claiming to outperform ChatGPT with a smaller number of parameters. The leaked version of LLaMA has sparked an explosion of developments, with versions of the model running on MacBooks and smartphones, making it more accessible than other LLMs.
