Chat GPT: Hype or reality?

23 March 2023 • by Michael R. Wade, Amit M. Joshi in Mike & Amit Talk Tech

New digital services and technologies are released all the time, and every so often, one comes along that hits the viral jackpot. But is ChatGPT here to stay?...

New digital services and technologies are released all the time, and every so often, one comes along that hits the viral jackpot. 

Bitcoin did this in 2017, Google’s audio chatbot duplex made a big splash in 2018, and the metaverse and Web 3.0 caught fire in 2022. Some, like Bitcoin, endure; most, however, fade away or shrink. Remember Clubhouse, anyone? Or the upcoming 3D printing revolution? 

The latest viral sensation is ChatGPT, a chatbot launched by OpenAI, a San Francisco-based research organization. In the inaugural episode of Mike and Amit Talk Tech, these two award-winning professors ask whether it will live up to the hype, or whether it’s just another fad in the ever-changing technology landscape.
