What is ChatGPT?

The following is a definition of ChatGPT, provided by ChatGPT on 1/3/2023: “CHATGPT is a variant of the GPT (Generative Pre-training Transformer) language model, which was developed by OpenAI. GPT models are trained to generate human-like text by predicting the next word in a sequence based on the words that come before it. ChatGPT is specifically designed to be used in chatbots and conversational systems, and it is trained on a large dataset of human conversations to learn how to generate appropriate responses in a variety of contexts” (Montclair State University).
