When ChatGPT first appeared in November last year, it was like a light switch being turned on and we all gained access to a new level of artificial intelligence online. We're all still getting used to that, but OpenAI hasn't stood still. ChatGPT uses GPT-3.5, and OpenAI spent the last six months(Opens in a new window) using the lessons it learned from that alongside its adversarial testing program to create GPT-4, which blows GPT-3.5 out of the water.https://www.pcmag.com/news/gpt-4-offers-human-level-performance-hallucinations-and-better-bing-results

That’s been the big hype train of the last few weeks, and it’s one that seems to be flattening every other tech discussion in its wake. It even got Elon Musk out of the news cycle for five minutes.https://www.vice.com/en/article/jgpypg/bing-chat-google-conversational-ai-search
“The classifier aims to help mitigate false claims that AI-generated text was written by a human. However, it still has a number of limitations — so it should be used as a complement to other methods of determining the source of text instead of being the primary decision-making tool,” an OpenAI spokesperson told TechCrunch via email. “We’re making this initial classifier available to get feedback on whether tools like this are useful, and hope to share improved methods in the future.”https://techcrunch.com/2023/01/31/openai-releases-tool-to-detect-ai-generated-text-including-from-chatgpt/
