The ChatGPT Phenomenon

Will We Become Jobless?

The chatbot1 ChatGPT has become the talk of the town these days. ChatGPT is a generative artificial intelligence (AI) tool by OpenAI2 that ­assists in various tasks, including word processing, content creation, and coding. As of now, ChatGPT has more than 100 million users (Duarte 2023). Subsequently, tech giant Alphabet introduced their chatbot, Bard. A recent survey by showed that many corporations in the United States (US) have begun using ChatGPT for content creation, coding, and customer service tasks. The survey notes that around 89% of those using the tool are satisfied with the output quality (Singh 2023). AI has been in use since 1956. However, tools like ChatGPT are a small part of the larger AI universe, a subset of the fourth industrial revolution (4IR) or industry 4.0.
