All about ChatGPT
All about Artificial intelligence
Anyone who uses ChatGPT to study and/or work was left in the lurch this Wednesday morning (08). People using OpenAI’s artificial intelligence (AI) received an error message when placing a command on the platform. Those who tried to log in received a warning, on an empty screen, informing them that the systems were overloaded.
According to the website Downdetector, which monitors the functioning of websites and applications in real time, complaints about the functioning of the OpenAI chatbot began at 11am this Wednesday. Users pointed out that both the OpenAI chatbot website and app were down.
O Digital Look also checked complaints about ChatGPT on social media. From user reports, the problem appears to have been general, not restricted to Brazil. See below some examples of complaints (and memes) about the functioning of the chatbot on X (formerly Twitter):
Until the publication of this note, ChatGPT had not started working again and OpenAI had not commented on the problem. While the chatbot is not working again, its home page displays a warning that the platform is at maximum capacity. See below:
100 million weekly users
At a developer conference, OpenAI CEO Sam Altman announced that 100 million people are using ChatGPT weekly.
The revelation was made at the company’s first conference, which took place on Monday (06). Since launching the ChatGPT and Whisper API models in March, OpenAI has gained more than two million developers, including more than 92% of Fortune 500 companies.
The release of these figures appears to be an attempt to counter recent media reports which suggested that ChatGPT’s popularity had been declining since its launch in November last year.
