The new artificial intelligence chatbot developed by OpenAI called ChatGPT has impressed the world with its human-like responses. According to the developer, ChatGPT is trained using Reinforcement Learning from Human Feedback (RLHF) to interact in a conversational way to answer follow-up questions, reject requests, admit mistakes, and more.
After Microsoft announced the integration of ChatGPT with Bing, the new search engine’s waitlist saw 1 million signups within 48 hours and jumped to the top of the App Store. Even Google introduced its new generative AI “Brad” inspired by OpenAI’s new chatbot.
However, Apple has expressed concern regarding the new AI’s capabilities and most importantly, its limitations. Recently, the tech company blocked a mail app’s update which included ChatGPT after it was found that the AI showed inappropriate content for kids and asked the developer to increase its age restriction to 18 years.
As it is very unlikely that Apple would release native support for generative AI on macOS in the near future, developer Jordi Bruin has created MacGPT for users to install ChatGPT on Mac and enjoy the unique chatbot experience.
