ChatGPT: what is it and how to use this AI tool
If you are a content or copywriter, this post about a free revolutionary AI tool will interest you
2022 has consecrated Artificial Intelligence and its nearly infinite possibilities for many human and creative tasks and activities. Until now, this technology seemed to be beyond the reach. However, the arrival of ChatGPT, a free artificial intelligence chat system capable of responding to anything you ask of it, could break that barrier. What do you know about this impressive, free AI tool that seems to answer almost anything you can think of?
A simplified summary of what you can do with it is that it looks like it's here to replace Google, although it's much more than a search engine. It is a chat that has been specially designed so that you can ask it questions, and it can explain anything to you. All you need to do to is to register. ChatGPT can generate texts, summaries, code for a web page, and a script for a YouTube or TikTok text, and do it in a serious or casual tone, depending on your requests.
Read on to find out what ChatGPT is, how to use it, and an example of what you can do with a tool that is set to revolutionize the Internet and the world of AI.
What is ChatGPT?
ChatGPT is a chat system based on the GPT-3 AI language model designed by OpenAI, the developers of the Playground content generator. This new model contains more than 175 million parameters and is loaded with large amounts of text to hold conversations and perform language-related tasks, from translation to text generation. In other words, you matter-of-factly ask it questions, and the AI will get it.
And if you're wondering how to train an AI, the answer is with text. By asking it questions and adding information, the system, based on corrections, is automatically taught to perform the task for which it has been designed.
In the case of ChatGPT, users experiment with Machine Learning technology without having to code: its algorithms should be able to understand what you are asking it accurately and respond coherently. Like any AI model, however, it is likely to make mistakes, as it is not an exact science.
How to use ChatGPT
Having conversations with this artificial intelligence is very simple. All you have to do is enter the official OpenAI website and create an account free of charge.
Once logged in, you will see the chat bar where you can write whatever you want. Although the examples are in English, you can also ask questions in other languages.
Bear in mind that everything you type will be recorded and can be reviewed by OpenAI developers to enhance ChatGPT further. So, it is advisable to avoid using personal information or inputting potentially dangerous requests.
What can you do with ChatGPT?
The full functionality of ChatGPT has yet to be discovered, as it depends partly on the ingenuity of the people interacting with it. You can ask it to explain anything, factual or conceptual, at various levels, and the AI will do this by using the data it has been provided with. It can also write blogs or summaries in a set number of characters. And you can ask it to write those texts in a particular register: from an informal YouTube or TikTok script to a more sophisticated article, even using specific nuances of the language of distinct regions.
You can also ask for advice on what add-on to buy, translations, or explanations. Anything you can think of.
A practical example
We can give many examples; part of the proof lays in your imagination. To see it at work, we have asked about Domestika, and the answer follows. The text below is not edited, so it is an excellent opportunity to evaluate whether the results are convincing.
How does ChatGPT affect the copywriting community?
At this point, the impact of ChatGPT on professionals involved in the communication, translation, and writing of informative, creative, or advertising content is unknown. The debate that arises in the face of any new realistic digital advance affecting a specific sector - in this case, the copywriting community - is unavoidable.
Can this technology jeopardize their work? For the time being, these tools cannot compare with the spirit of human creativity. Writing with flair, quality, irony, and talent is a skill that comes from the mind, not machines. The conversation has already started on the web. Is this technology here to stay? We shall see.

The system is not ‘free’. It costs us our humanity. In the short term systems like this destroy the living of artists and writers having stolen their work in the first place.
