OpenAI CEO Sam Altman has Stated ChatGPT as a “horrible product”
In a recent podcast Hard Fork by the New York Times, OpenAI CEO Sam Altman was highly critical of ChatGPT, the artificial intelligence chatbot developed by the company. Altman described the product as “horrible” and highlighted its frequent error messages, simplistic design, and capacity issues as its major flaws. He noted that the user needs to go through a long-drawn process to get work done by ChatGPT, which often results in a breakdown of the product or queries being rejected.
Altman also commented on the integration of the new ChatGPT language model with Microsoft Bing, claiming that the addition of citations under a Bing search result will help deal with false information.
Altman In November gained one million users within its first week, growing even faster than popular social media apps like Instagram and TikTok. Greg Brockman, another OpenAI cofounder, had previously admitted that the launch of ChatGPT was a last resort, due to difficulties encountered with beta testers.
Altman admitted that the technology behind ChatGPT is “cool,” but stated that it is far from being a “great, well-integrated product yet.” A new version of ChatGPT, called Bing, is currently in development and requires users to join a waiting list with their email IDs before they can access it. Despite its flaws, ChatGPT has become a popular tool for students with its ability to help with essays, exams and job applications. Bill Gates has even praised the bot, saying it will “change our world” and is “like having a teacher.”
