ChatGPT's Declining Performance
Tired of getting responses from your chatbot that don’t make any sense? You’re not alone. Researchers from Stanford have conducted a study that seemingly confirms the claims made by ChatGPT users – that the OpenAI language model is getting worse at generating coherent and meaningful responses. The team suggests that the reason for the decline is likely to be found in the vast amount of data ChatGPT was trained on, leading to biases and inaccuracies.
ChatGPT, if you’re not familiar, is an early-stage AI technology that utilises deep learning to generate human-like text. It was developed by OpenAI, the AI research firm founded by Elon Musk. It has a number of applications, but one of the most popular uses is as a messaging bot, where you can interact with it by sending it messages through your phone or computer.
The team at Stanford highlight that despite the decline in ChatGPT’s performance, the technology remains a valuable tool for various applications. But improvements are definitely needed.
“These results raise the question of what will be the limitations and challenges of language models as they move from the current generation of language models to the next,” the researchers state. “We hope that the open-source nature of ChatGPT will allow the community to build on its foundation and answer these questions in the coming years.”
