What is Chat GPT?

No matter how you plan to use GhatGPT, this Artificial Intelligence (AI) software system has the potential to completely change how we do things forever. Seen as Google’s next competitor, it hasn’t took long for this software system to take BBC News headlines and the internet ‘by storm’. The program has been developed by Open AI and is set up as a language based model trained to deliver anyone a conversational style response to their specific questions.


ChatGPT stands for ‘Chat Generative Pre-trained Transformer’ and was developed by OpenAI as a language machine which has the ability to explore the internet in the search for supervised learning tailored to your own requirements. The application will allow you to generate dialogue through its simulated chatbox where the system uses a wide range of sources of data across the internet to collect the information you need and interact with you in a conversational way.

So now you have the basic understanding of what ChatGPT is, you are probably wondering how can I use to my own advantage? Let me share some examples with you on how easy it is to use..

How to use ChatGPT

Lets take a look at what you need to know if you want to get the most out of ChatGPT.

1. Understanding Prompts

The platform is set up to automatically generate responses based of written prompts. It is therefore your decision to decide how informative of a response you want to receive by the level of detail you insert through the chat box.

Prompt 1: ‘Can you give me the ingredients to make pancakes’

ChatGPT clearly saves us a lot of time but because of the software systems lack of user experience and actual time on the market, it is difficult to know where its future lies.
