ChatGPT overshadows past AI chatbots
The research pointed out some of the key driving factors behind ChatGPT’s spike in demand. According to the research report:
“The skyrocketing demand for ChatGPT can be tied to its functionality, which comes with advanced and creative responses that have overshadowed previous AI chatbots. The platform stands out due to several factors, such as its ability to understand and give feedback on diverse human inputs that have elevated ChatGPT to handle different tasks, such as writing code, and generating content, among others.”
Moving forward, despite the initial success of the generative AI tool, ChatGPT still needs to overcome several headwinds, such as the threat of competition from established tech companies.
