After the party and euphoria comes the inevitable hangover and negative reaction the next day. While continuing to impress and fascinate the entire planet, the ChatGPT artificial intelligence sees many professionals taking a stand against its abuses, especially in the teaching profession.
Elon Musk, the man behind OpenAI and ChatGPT
Unless you’ve been totally hibernating for the last few weeks, you can’t have missed the “ChatGPT” phenomenon. We remind you that ChatGPT is a kind of bot (a robot on the Internet) equipped with state-of-the-art artificial intelligence, capable of feeding on what it finds on the net and quickly learning to develop detailed and perfectly constructed responses.
For the record, ChatGPT is powered by the association OpenAI, founded on December 11, 2015 by a certain… Elon Musk himself, joined by former PayPal partners.
