In Gizmodo, Lucas Ropek’s article “Everything We Know About OpenAI’s ChatGPT” adds to the ever-increasing buzz surrounding the chatbot, offering a straightforward summary of what ChatGPT is and how it works.

He explains that it is funded by Elon Musk, Peter Thiel and others and is used by entering a prompt such as a question or command, as with most generative AI systems. Ropek also warns about potential risks associated with the chatbot, such as the possibility that it could kill the college essay, make human writers obsolete, generate factually inaccurate news articles, fuel cybercrime and lead to people getting fired.

Robek also wrote a separate article about how ChatGPT can be used to create malware, computer code that is written and deployed for nefarious or criminal intent.

He notes that the premium version of ChatGPT may cost $42 a month.
