The new AI language model has been trending since its launch late last year. Here’s how you can get started on it and what you can use it for
The number of ChatGPT users has skyrocketed in the past few months, as OpenAI’s most popular endeavor has been on the minds of individuals worldwide, including those running Google, Microsoft, Meta, and other tech experts. The ChatGPT model became the fastest growing ‘app’ of all time, even surpassing TikTok.
People are learning how to use ChatGPT to ask it questions in search of funny answers, see how well it can create content, improve their writing, find and correct a bug in code; summarize a book. Some even wonder if the AI chatbot could replace programmers or writers, and how it will revolutionize different industries.
Through it all, one thing is clear: The genius of this latest AI tool isn’t in how innovative the idea of it is, but in how accessible and easy it is to use. The AI chatbot can hold conversational text interactions with users by employing artificial intelligence, and these exchanges can feel as natural as if you were having a chat with a real person.

ChatGPT can generate responses to prompts (a feature that could eventually challenge search engines) well enough to become an important tool for content generation from writing essays to summarizing a book for you, but it can also write and fix code, make calculations, help you compile your resume, translate information, and more. Here are examples of prompts you could start with:
- What is quantum physics?
