"ChatGPT is the latest and most impressive artificially intelligent chatbot
yet. It was released two weeks ago, and in just five days hit a million users.
It’s being used so much that its servers have reached capacity several times.
OpenAI, the company that developed it, is already being discussed as a
potential Google slayer. Why look up something on a search engine when ChatGPT
can write a whole paragraph explaining the answer? (There’s even a Chrome
extension that lets you do both, side by side.)
But what if we never know the secret sauce behind ChatGPT’s capabilities?
The chatbot takes advantage of a number of technical advances published in open
scientific literature in the past couple of decades. But any innovations unique
to it are secret. OpenAI could well be trying to build a technical and business
moat to keep others out."
