Already a game-changer for artificial intelligence, ChatGPT jumped to become the fastest-growing web platform of all time earlier this year as millions of people around the world rushed to communicate using a system that can mimic human conversation.
However, due to the knowledge deadline of September 2021, the system cannot answer current affairs questions.
For example, when Fox News Digital tried to ask ChatGPT questions about current events, such as whether the implosion of the Titan submersible could have been avoided, or what allegations were made against Hunter Biden this month, the chatbot responded that it had no knowledge of the current situation . Events after September 2021.
When asked why languages are not available after September 2021, ChatGPT replied: “As an AI language model, I have a knowledge deadline because my training data only lasts until September 2021.” Used for training My time ends and I cannot access information or events that occurred after that time. “
I interview CHATGPT like a human being; this is what it said that gave me chills
The chatbot went on to say that the motivation behind the deadline “is to make it clear to the user that I may not be aware of recent developments or updated information.”
“It is important to remember that any responses I provide regarding events, news or technology after September 2021 are based on my training and may not reflect the latest information,” the chatbot said.
ChatGPT runs on a generatively pretrained Transformer-4, which means it is not connected to the internet, but uses only trained material to respond to users.
What is the history of artificial intelligence?
OpenAI states on its website: “ChatGPT is not connected to the Internet, and it occasionally produces incorrect answers. It has limited knowledge of the world and events beyond 2021, and may occasionally produce harmful instructions or biased content.”
Launched in November, ChatGPT quickly grew to 100 million monthly active users by January, setting a record for the fastest growing user base ever. Its release became a watershed moment in the tech world, spurring other AI labs to speed up building similar or smarter programs.

For example, Google released a version of its chatbot called Bard in March. The system didn’t get the same rave reviews as ChatGPT, but it contrasts with ChatGPT in one important respect: Bard can search the internet to reply to users.
Bard is able to scour the internet through news articles, social media, and expert opinion to respond to users on current events, such as the riots in Russia.

When asked how to answer questions about current events, Bard responded: “Bad has been trained on a massive dataset of news articles, which gives him a broad understanding of current events.” He noted that the system also collects social Responses from the media and experts who have spoken publicly about the topic online.
“When you ask Bard a question about a current event, it can search its knowledge base for relevant news articles and provide you with a summary of the information it finds.”
Technology developers are taking the powerful systems a step further and are working on building AI-integrated search engines. For example, Google released its experimental Search Generation Experience (SGE) in May, integrating AI-generated responses into search results.

Google said in a blog post announcing the experimental system that “assuming you’re looking for removable wallpaper to decorate your rental room,” the AI-generated responses will include simple facts “like whether it’s easy to remove,” and provide “A list of fashion options, including prices, customer ratings, and links to buy.”
