Students love it. Teachers, maybe, depending on whether they are a user or a marker. ChatGPT has been the talk of the town since its introduction in November.
The AI chatbot has transformed the way people search for information and answers. From answering examination questions to preparing sermons on the fly, it has made things easier in so many ways. While some may be tempted to accept its output wholesale, others may use it as a framework to kickstart a project or thesis.
It’s not wonder that Microsoft is investing billions of dollars in OpenAI, the creator of ChatGPT. If and when integrated with Bing, the chatbot will give the Microsoft search engine a leg up in its rivalry with Google.
Not to be outdone, Google has fired back by revealing that it is developing an AI tool that can generate music from text. Called MusicLM, the AI tool can even turn a whistled or hummed melody into music on other instruments. That’s really cool!
In China, Baidu is reportedly planning to launch in March its version of ChatGPT. The application will be embedded into its search engine and generate results similar to what the OpenAI tool does.
All these developments have brought about excitement not experienced since the introduction of search engines in the 1990s.
