The Difference Between ChatGPT and GPT-3

ChatGPT is eating the world by attracting 1,000,000 users within 5 days.

ChatGPT and GPT-3 are both language models developed by OpenAI, but they have some key differences. Let’s take a closer look at these differences to help you understand how ChatGPT differs from GPT-3.

First, let’s take a look at GPT-3. GPT-3 is a state-of-the-art language model that has been trained on a massive amount of data, making it capable of understanding and generating human-like text. It can be used for a wide range of natural language processing tasks such as:

  • language translation
  • summarization
  • text generation

GPT-3 is also available with different engines like Davinci, Curie, Babbage and Ada which are specialized in certain tasks.

ChatGPT, on the other hand, is a variant of GPT-3 that is specifically designed for conversational language understanding and generation. It has been fine-tuned on a large dataset of conversational interactions and is able to understand the context and flow of a conversation. ChatGPT can be used for tasks such as:

  • chatbot development
  • customer service
  • dialogue generation

In terms of capabilities, GPT-3 is more versatile and can be used for a wider range of tasks, while ChatGPT is specifically designed for conversational language understanding and generation. GPT-3 is also larger than ChatGPT and thus has a more extensive knowledge base, but ChatGPT is more efficient in understanding the context and flow of a conversation.

Another key difference is that GPT-3 is available via OpenAI’s API, while ChatGPT is only available as a pre-trained model that can be fine-tuned on specific tasks and datasets.

Engine Comparison (Davinci/Curie/Babbage/Ada)

One of the most impressive features of GPT-3 is the availability of four different engines to choose from: Davinci, Curie, Babbage, and Ada. Each…
