ChatGPT is one of the most talked-about generative AI models in the tech world right now. The AI-powered chatbot, which provides human-like responses to questions, has been around since last year and has gotten people talking about its November 2022 launch. ChatGPT was initially made available to the public as a testing model, but now users can also access a premium version of the AI tool, which includes a slew of new features.
Following the success of ChatGPT, Google launched its own AI chatbot, Bard. Microsoft, on the other hand, has long invested in ChatGPT’s parent company, OpenAI, and the two companies have recently strengthened their partnership. Microsoft has also released a new version of Bing that will use AI technology to reimagine how people search for information online.
Amazon CEO Andy Jassy, in an interview with Financial Times, talked about generative AI and said that the possibilities are ‘exciting’. He also added that most large technological companies have been working with these large, generative AI models ‘for a long time’.
He said, “I think it’s exciting, what’s possible with generative AI. And it’s part of what you’re seeing with models like ChatGPT. But most large, deeply technical companies like ours, have been working on these very large, generative AI models themselves for a long time.”
Some of us have already been using Amazon’s generative AI in the form of Alexa for a few years. Amazon’s well-known AI assistant has long been a fixture in many homes. Several devices include Amazon’s Alexa built in, and while some people use the AI assistant for tasks like playing music, dimming lights, setting alarms, and so on, others simply enjoy having fun by asking Alexa to tell them jokes, stories, and so on.
