Two months after its release, there were more than 30 million users.
ChatGPT uses “machine learning” — statistical pattern finding in huge datasets — to generate human-like responses in everyday language to any question asked of it. It basically works by predicting what the next word in a sentence ought to be based on previous examples found in the massive amounts of data that’s been fed into it….
