ChatGPT is an artificial intelligence chat robot that is currently popular all over the world, and it can even simulate a Linux environment.
Powered by OpenAI — the research firm started by Elon Musk and backed by Microsoft — recently spotted its performance certificate in an open beta phase where anyone can use it.
To prepare for this role, ChatGPT uses the input information as part of its initial training data. These may include excerpts from Linux manuals and actual logs of shell sessions.
DeepMind researcher Jonas Degrave, who made the discovery, told ChatGPT very explicitly that he wanted it to masquerade as a Linux terminal and respond to the commands he typed like a Linux terminal. The chatbot complied appropriately, responding in code block format like a terminal.
ChatGPT works by identifying the most likely words to follow up from previous words in a conversation, ultimately leveraging the entire conversation history when making further prompts.
ChatGPT fully immerses itself in a part of the Linux machine and even executes Python code. Degrave gave it a simple calculation written in the Python language, and it gave the correct answer.
Another ChatGPT user managed to get it to emulate an old bulletin board system (BBS), from pretending to be a dial-up modem to creating a virtual chat room, including one named Lisa.
OpenAI and ChatGPT have recently lit up the AI world with all sorts of surprising and wacky results, from pretending to be an ATM to explaining Einstein’s general relativity rhyme form.
However, when it comes to more important tasks, such as gathering factually accurate information, ChatGPT is less efficient, and reviewers point out that its novel output can be both meaningless and accurate, depending on user input.
