ChatGPT: A Microsoft Start-Up Venture!

By Staff Reporters



Microsoft is reportedly preparing for its largest startup investment in history: a $10 billion stake in OpenAI that could value the research lab at $29 billion. OpenAI is the creator of potentially groundbreaking AI tools like ChatGPT, the multitalented chatbot that can code in Python and help high schoolers cheat on English essays.

MSFT has already invested $1 billion in OpenAI, but thinks an even tighter relationship would help it better compete with Big Tech rivals like Google (which reportedly declared a “code red” over ChatGPT’s threat to its search dominance).

But Microsoft’s AI ambitions go beyond just integrating ChatGPT know-how into its own search engine, Bing. The company wants to use OpenAI’s tools in its Office suite—and it’s already experimenting with algorithms to help users craft emails in Outlook.

OpenAI was founded in 2015 as a mission-based AI research organization by a roster from Silicon Valley’s A-list, including Elon Musk. Its stated goal is to develop safe AI for the benefit of humanity. But OpenAI has plenty of critics who have called it out for ethical concerns, a lack of transparency, and abandoning its mission for profits.

According to MorningBrew, a slew of buzzy AI product releases in 2022 has startup investors forgetting they ever heard the word “metaverse.” Languishing in the prolonged crypto winter and facing an uncertain economic environment, many venture capitalists see the field as the next big thing to shovel money into their coffers.



UPDATE: Bill Gates just hinted that he may be working on Open AI’s large language chatbot ChatGPT in collaboration with Microsoft if the reported $10 billion investment in the start-up goes through. Gates also admitted that he’s still involved with the company’s research and product plans, and said he’s watching the developments in ChatGPT “very closely.”

  1. ChatGPT

    As more students realize that ChatGPT can write five-paragraph essays as good as—if not significantly better than—what they’re capable of, teachers are scrambling for tools that can detect whether they’re grading the writing of a young human or a young robot.

    Several cheating-detection tools have sprung up in the few months since ChatGPT, a conversational language model from OpenAI, arrived on the scene. The most-talked about one is GPTZero, which was developed by, of all people…a student.

    Over winter break, 22-year-old Princeton student Edward Tian created an app that determines the likelihood that a piece of text was written by a human or by ChatGPT. While it probably didn’t make him the most popular dude on campus, the app has gotten more than 7 million views as of last week.

    Apps like GPTZero are becoming increasingly sought after as older cheating detection tools become obsolete in the ChatGPT era.

    Remember Turnitin?

    Many of us who’ve been tasked with explaining the green light at the end of The Great Gatsby have had to submit those essays to to make sure we didn’t copy it from Wikipedia. That was effective…before ChatGPT. But what makes ChatGPT different is that it theoretically creates an original response of text every time you query it. That’s not what Turnitin is designed for: It cross-checks your work against an existing database of writing.

    Turnitin, of course, is on the case: It says it’s currently testing a tool that can detect AI-generated text, and plans to open it up to the public later this year.

    But as good as these apps get, ChatGPT and its fellow language models will also evolve—and some education experts say teachers will have to also rely on the oldest tool in the book to mitigate cheating: their noggin. Teachers will need to understand the differences (which do exist) between AI and human writing. They’ll also likely need to overhaul their teaching process to minimize cheating opportunities—for instance, by setting clear expectations with students about the role of ChatGPT in classrooms, or by tweaking their assignments to reward skills ChatGPT hasn’t mastered…



  2. ChatGPT

    ChatGPT is a large language model developed by OpenAI. It is based on the Generative Pre-training Transformer (GPT) architecture and is fine-tuned to perform a variety of natural language processing tasks, such as text generation, text completion, and question answering.

    I signed up for a free account and asked it a variety of serious and silly questions and it impressed me with the original responses and takes about 10 seconds per response. When I asked it to describe foot pain using a pirate voice, here was the response.

    “Ahoy, mateys! Foot pain be a true test of a pirate’s grit and determination. Ye feel as if yer walkin’ the plank, with every step feelin’ like a stab from a cutlass. Ye can’t stand the thought of havin’ to walk the deck all day and night. Ye might be feelin’ like yer feet be swelled up like a bladder and it hurts to put on yer boots. Ye might be feelin’ like yer toes be twisted and cramped like a bundle of ropes. Ye might be feelin’ like yer arches be collapsin’ like a sinking ship. It’s a true test of a pirate’s endurance, but with the right care and attention, ye can set sail on yer journey once again.”

  4. ChatGPT

    ChatGPT is now officially the fastest-growing consumer application in history after it notched 100 million monthly active users in January, per estimates from UBS. It took OpenAI’s chatbot just two months from launch to reach the milestone, compared to nine months for TikTok and 2.5 years for Instagram.
    So, how to capitalize on this explosion of interest? Open AI said it will soon release ChatGPT Plus, a commercial version, for $20/month.

  5. Chat GPT

    An international group of scientists has begun to use AI to hunt for aliens—and not by asking ChatGPT “Tell me where aliens are located in the style of Pulp Fiction.” Instead, they’re using machine-learning algorithms to sift through huge quantities of data to detect alien transmitters on distant planets.

  6. Hello,

    Below is what ChatGPT replied with when I asked it: Tell me where aliens are located in the style of Pulp Fiction.

    Well, let me tell you something, my friend. Aliens ain’t exactly the kind of thing you can just locate like a burger joint or a pawn shop, you know what I mean? They’re out there in the vast expanse of space, lightyears away from us. And who knows what they look like or how they behave? They could be little green men, or giant tentacled beasts, or something we ain’t even imagined yet.

    But one thing’s for sure, if aliens do exist, they ain’t exactly advertising their presence. They ain’t sending us postcards or telegrams or anything like that. Maybe they’re watching us, studying us from afar, waiting for the right moment to reveal themselves. Or maybe they’re just minding their own business, living their alien lives on some distant planet or in some far-flung corner of the universe.

    So, if you wanna find aliens, you gotta think outside the box, my friend. You gotta be willing to take some risks, explore the unknown, and maybe even bend the laws of physics a little bit. But one thing’s for sure, if you do happen to stumble upon some little green men, just make sure you don’t pull out your wallet and offer to buy them a drink. That’s a surefire way to end up in a galaxy far, far away.
