What is ChatGPT and how do you use it?

Reading Time: 2 minutes

We put the question to ChatGPT itself at openai.com, which it answered.

I am ChatGPT, a large language model developed by OpenAI. I have been trained on a vast amount of text data to understand and generate human-like responses to various questions and prompts.

You can use me by asking me any question or giving me any prompt, and I will do my best to provide you with an informative and helpful response. You can ask me about almost anything, from science and technology to history and culture, from personal advice to philosophical musings.

I have the potential to be used for the public good in a variety of ways. For example, I can be used to improve online education by providing personalized tutoring and feedback to students or to assist in medical research by analyzing large amounts of data and identifying patterns and correlations. I can also help people with disabilities or language barriers to communicate more effectively and access information that would otherwise be difficult to obtain. Ultimately, the potential applications of AI language models like mine are limited only by human creativity and ingenuity.


  • I will remember what the user said earlier in the conversation
  • I allow users to provide follow-up corrections
  • I am trained to decline inappropriate requests


  • I may occasionally generate incorrect information
  • I may occasionally produce harmful instructions or biased content
  • I have limited knowledge of the world and events after 2021

As an AI language model, ChatGPT can be used in various ways depending on the user’s needs. Here are some common ways you can use ChatGPT:

  1. Q&A: You can ask ChatGPT any question on various topics such as history, science, technology, entertainment, and more. ChatGPT will use its trained knowledge to provide you with an answer.
  2. Conversation: ChatGPT can have a natural language conversation with you on any topic you choose. You can discuss current events, hobbies, or anything else that interests you.
  3. Writing Assistance: ChatGPT can help you write by suggesting words, phrases, or even entire sentences. You can also ask it to generate ideas for your writing projects.
  4. Language Translation: ChatGPT can translate text from one language to another. You can input text in one language, and ChatGPT will provide another translation.
  5. Personal Assistant: ChatGPT can assist you with tasks such as scheduling appointments, setting reminders, and making recommendations.

To use ChatGPT, type in your query or prompt, and ChatGPT will respond with an appropriate answer or suggestion.
