What does the ‘GPT’ in ChatGPT even stand for?
ChatGPT is the most exciting technological innovation of the year – an AI-generated piece of software with which you can have human conversations on a variety of topics. ChatGPT will answer most of your prompts, even if those answers aren’t always accurate. The “chat” part in the name sort of gives away the functionality, but what does “GPT” stand for?
GPT is a acronym for a Generation Pre-trained Transformer. This set of terms practically explains what this AI product is, as long as you are familiar with the technology that powers large AI language models. Plus, “Generative Chat Pre-trained Transformer” doesn’t really roll off the tongue.
ChatGPT is the first widely available AI generation product. And while Microsoft and Google quickly followed with Bing Chat and Google Bard, respectively, most people will probably refer to AI-generated products as ChatGPTs.
Just like you would put an iPad on a tablet, even if it’s not one. Or a Kleenex tissue. That’s the importance of branding your products like never before.
OpenAI could choose something more user-friendly, of course. But ChatGPT has personality. People remember it, even if they have no idea what “GPT” means.
In comparison, Bing Chat (which is ChatGPT with Microsoft enhancements) and Google Bard are simpler marketing terms. But they’re not immediately recognizable, and you don’t necessarily associate them with AI.
Instead of picking an easy name for the software, OpenAI chose something that explicitly describes the technology that powers the AI chatbot. That Generative Pre-trained Transformer is the technology that makes those conversations with AI possible. And, like Geeky Gadgets explainseach term has meaning.
The first one is easy. “Generative” refers to the AI’s ability to generate text. That’s what the AI does when you issue hints. He answers through text tailored to the question. His answers are not pre-recorded. Or defaults. The more you use ChatGPT, the more you will understand that.
“Pre-trained” means that ChatGPT has received plenty of training to get here. The language model was based on a lot of data from the internet and user generated hints. That allows ChatGPT to understand human language and provide answers to any valid question.
I say valid because ChatGPT has restrictions in place to prevent abuse. Even if he knows the answers to some questions, he won’t offer it.
Finally, there is the “Transformer” part. It has no relation to the Transformers you know or love. Instead, Transformer refers to the neural network architecture used by OpenAI. This one allows the AI to understand the context of the language. And that’s a key feature of any product like ChatGPT, which understands human language and responds in kind.
At the end of the day, it doesn’t matter if you understand what ChatGPT means as long as you know what it does and how it works. But I think it’s really important to familiarize yourself with ChatGPT and similar products. We’ll get even better versions of ChatGPT, as I expect AI generation software in most consumer tech gadgets to hit stores in the coming years.
