ChatGPT is free!

ChatGPT is now free for everyone! A premium version may exist for extra features.

How does it work?

ChatGPT utilizes transformers, machine learning algorithms that are trained on extensive text data. It learns to predict the next word in a sentence by converting each encountered word into a mathematical vector representation.

These vectors capture the meaning of the words, enabling the model to comprehend context and word relationships. When you provide input, ChatGPT converts it into vectors, grasps the context, and continuously predicts the next word to generate a coherent response.

How can you use it?

ChatGPT is incredibly versatile and user-friendly. You can interact with it just like you would with a person, in plain English, no coding skills required. Use it to draft emails, check and correct your grammar, brainstorm ideas, write pieces of code, answer your queries, or even to help you write a story. It's like having your very own personal assistant.

General Tips

1) Be explicit: If you want a certain type of answer, you can structure your prompt to guide the model. For instance, if you want a pros and cons list, you can start your prompt with "List the pros and cons of...".

2) Use system messages: These are messages at the start of a conversation that instruct the model how to behave. For example, you might start a conversation with "You are a professional software engineer working for Google."

3) Remember context: The model responds based on the input you provide. If you're not getting what you want, try rephrasing or providing more context.

4) ChatGPT can translate and summarize: Need a quick translation or summary of a text? Just ask. For example, "Translate the following English text to French:..." or "Summarize the following article:..."

Advanced Tips

1) Use plugins to expand GPT-4's capabilities: GPT-4 has several plugins available, including Zapier, Wolfram, and Speak, that allow you to take the AI in new directions. ChatGPT has a store of plugins that can help it give you everything from better programming and math advice to local restaurant recommendations.

  • By using these plugins in ChatGPT Plus, you can greatly expand the capabilities of GPT-4. For example, the web browser plugin gives GPT-4 access to the whole of the internet, allowing it to fetch live information directly from the internet on your behalf.

2) Use GPT-4 for support, sales, content moderation, and programming: OpenAI has been using GPT-4 internally with great impact on functions like support, sales, content moderation, and programming.
