Are you up for an incredible Artificial intelligence (AI) adventure?
Say hello to ChatGPT, one of the largest language models and your virtual companion. ChatGPT can process and generate text quickly and well, but...is ChatGPT safe?
Safety is key on this digital journey.
So let's buckle up and figure out how to use ChatGPT safely and effectively.
1. Verify all information
ChatGPT is a language model, NOT a source of truth.
ChatGPT is a powerful tool, but it learns from the data we feed to it.
This means that it might generate answers that are not accurate.
Do your own research and confirm all information.
For example, if you ask ChatGPT what is the tallest building in the world, it will tell you that it's Burj Khalifa in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. To confirm this, you can:
Google the building's name
Ask an architecture professor or another expert
Ask ChatGPT to cite its source and check the source directly
2. Don't overshare
Never share personal or confidential information with ChatGPT.
How can you tell if you crossed the line?
If you wouldn't print it and leave it at your local bus stop, then you shouldn't feed it into ChatGPT.
What information is OK to enter into ChatGPT?
3. Be clear and concise
The clearer and more detailed your instructions, the more relevant the response you get.
ChatGPT can't think for itself and it can't read your mind. You need to tell it what you want it to do.
If you aren't clear, you may get wrong or irrelevant results.
If your topic is too complex, break it down into smaller parts to improve your results.
