What Is AI? What Is ChatGPT?2:52 with Dustin Usey
In this video, we explore the fascinating world of AI and introduce ChatGPT, a language model designed to understand and respond to human language. Join Dustin as he dives into the basics of artificial intelligence and learn how ChatGPT is transforming the way we interact with technology.
[MUSIC] 0:00 Hey, what's up? 0:09 My name is Dustin and I'm a developer here at Treehouse. 0:10 You've probably heard a lot about AI recently. 0:12 It's growing massively in popularity lately and 0:14 one of the biggest names in AI right now is ChatGPT. 0:17 But what is ChatGPT and what is AI? 0:21 Let's break both of those down a little bit. 0:24 AI, or artificial intelligence, is the field of computer science that focuses on 0:26 creating machines that can perform tasks that usually require human intelligence. 0:30 These tasks can include recognizing speech, making decisions, or 0:35 even solving problems. 0:39 AI algorithms are designed to learn from data and 0:41 improve their performance over time. 0:43 In other words, AI is about creating intelligent machines that can think and 0:46 learn just like humans. 0:49 So, what types of AI are out there? 0:51 Well, there are mainly two types of AI, narrow and general. 0:54 Narrow AI refers to machines that are designed to perform a specific task or 0:58 set of tasks, like speech recognition or image classification. 1:03 On the other hand, general AI refers to machines that can perform any intellectual 1:07 task that a human can. 1:11 However, general AI is still a long way off and is still in the research phase. 1:13 Okay, so now we kind of have the basics down of AI. 1:18 So what exactly is ChatGPT? 1:20 Well, ChatGPT is a language model created by a company called OpenAI that uses 1:23 natural language processing to generate human-like responses to text input. 1:28 Basically what that means is ChatGPT can understand the language you type or speak, 1:34 and it can reply in a way that sounds like a human. 1:38 ChatGPT is one of the most advanced language models currently available, and 1:41 it can be used for various applications such as chatbots, language translation, 1:45 and even content generation. 1:49 So how does ChatGPT work exactly? 1:52 Well, it's actually pretty simple. 1:54 When you ask ChatGPT a question, it uses a process called natural language processing 1:56 to analyze your question and understand the context and meaning behind it. 2:01 Then it searches through a massive database of knowledge to find the best 2:05 answer for your question. 2:08 ChatGPT is constantly learning and updating its knowledge, 2:11 which means it can provide increasingly accurate and relevant answers over time. 2:14 In fact, the more you use ChatGPT, the better it gets. 2:18 One of the things that makes ChatGPT so 2:21 powerful is its ability to understand context. 2:23 This means that it can take into account things like the tone of your question or 2:26 any previous interactions you've had with it to provide an even more personalized 2:30 response. 2:33 Overall ChatGPT is an incredibly sophisticated tool if you know how to 2:35 use it correctly. 2:39 I hope this quick guide on AI was super helpful for you and 2:40 you're not as intimidated as you were before starting this video. 2:42 Be on the lookout for 2:46 some new content where we build some pretty awesome stuff using AI. 2:47 Until then have fun and happy coding. 2:50
