What is ChatGPT?

4 min read

The benefits of AI include advancing our technology, improving business operations, and much more. Adoption of AI has more than doubled since 2017, and one recent AI model has captured the world’s attention — ChatGPT. Users of ChatGPT are in awe of the technology, and even investors are flocking to stocks with AI in their technology stack. So, is this AI chatbot good or bad? Let’s start with what it is. 

Common uses

Some of the most common uses of the platform include: 

  • Brainstorming new content ideas and topics  
  • Recapping long documents to generate a condensed summary 
  • Translating text in one language to another language
  • Creating blogs, social media captions, email responses, and other forms of marketing content 

Many people have been shocked with just how human-like the platform really is. This is because during the creation process, the responses were trained on immense amounts of data written by humans.

Can it be used maliciously

Unfortunately, just like the marketing content that is commonly produced on ChatGPT, phishing emails and spam also need to sound human-like and personalised too; and this is where a level of concern comes into play. 

ChatGPT claims to have implemented controls and monitoring systems to prevent malicious use. However, soon we could have similar open-source versions of ChatGPT that attackers will be able to run on their own. For better or worse, this platform and its competitors are going to be around for a while.

How much does it cost?

Nothing (but that could change).

Is it reliable?

It’s getting a little overworked with it’s popularity but refresh and be patient and you’ll find your answers. In terms of answers, it’s very accruate but is AI so always check that it churns out what you’d expect.

I’ve used the application for complex excel formulas and they’ve worked a treat.

We cannot recommend Penntech highly enough for their continuous IT support, we have worked with them for years and there is truly nothing that they cannot solve or help with. Their vast amount of knowledge and speed in response is second to none.

I've known Lewis since working with him at CIFF in 2011. More recently, he has built-up an excellent business which supports a number of my past and present clients. He also supports my business. Lewis is first rate and equally importantly, he has built a good team around him to provide quality, responsive IT support. I can't recommend Penntech highly enough.

Friendly and approachable, but also excellent technically. As a barristers chambers we have industry-specific data protection requirements. Penntech showed in-depth knowledge about the interaction between these requirements and technical IT aspects.

Penntech helped us migrate and merge our inbox's for our small restaurant and bar group. They were super efficient and got everything done within 24 hours. I highly recommend them and will be using them again.

Heartstyles have worked with Penntech for 3 years. The initial brief to sort out our global IT requirements. Penntech have always been refreshing clear in their comms, avoiding IT gobbledygook. No job has been too small to support and they always deliver above and beyond what was required and within budget. They clearly know what they’re doing and the level of service is always outstanding

Lewis and the team at Penntech are seen very much as an extension of our business. They are professional, technically brilliant, don't over complicate things, very friendly and the staff feel comfortable dealing with them on a daily basis. They have a good understanding of our needs and go above and beyond to ensure we can get on with our day to day business, safe in the knowledge that if anything goes wrong technically that Penntech will resolve it efficiently.
