Explain ChatGPT To A Primary School Student


My 7-year-old asked me what chatGPT?

Hmmm, Good question but how do you answer this to a 7-year-old child? In my mind, I decided let’s ask ChatGPT.

I powered on my laptop and quickly opened the URL: (goodbye Google.., for years I used google but now after using chatGPT for a few days, I can’t imagine going back to Google search engine)

In the interface, I typed “Explain ChatGPT to a child”, and very quickly I received the response:

“ChatGPT is a talking computer that can help you with things you need to know, like answering questions or having a chat with you. It’s really smart because it has learned a lot of things and can talk to you like a real person. It’s like having a friendly robot friend to help you out!”

Then my little girl curiously asked me, What can chatGPT do?

Again I asked Chatgpt to answer the question, and the reply from Chatgpt was:

“Hello! ChatGPT is like a smart robot that can talk with people and answer their questions. It can help you learn new things about the world, play games with you, and even help you with your homework or school projects. It’s kind of like having a really smart friend to talk to whenever you want!”

Very impressive answer. I read the answer to my daughter and she was listening with amazement, joy, and curiosity in her eyes.

Then my little girl asked: Is chatGPT a real robot ?

I decided to use Chatgpt to find the answers to my little girl’s question, so I typed her exact question in the chat box and instantly I got the reply:

“ChatGPT is not a physical robot like the robots that you might see in movies or on TV. It is a special computer program that uses artificial intelligence to talk and have conversations with people. So even though ChatGPT is not a real robot, it can still be a lot of fun to talk to and learn new things from!”

I read the response to my daughter and she was giggling and asked can ChatGPT read me a story?

And the response from chatGPT was: “Sure! ChatGPT is really good at reading stories! It can read all sorts of stories, from fairy tales to adventure stories, and even stories about animals or space. You can ask ChatGPT to read a story to you, and it will do its best to read it out loud. Just tell ChatGPT what kind of story you would like to hear, and it will try to find the perfect one for you.”

I read the response back to my daughter and instantly she wanted to chatGPT to read out a story.

ChatGPT – Rise of AI

While explaining the chatGPT to my child I was amazed and at the same time a little bit scared by the Rise of Artificial Intelligence. ChatGPT is already simplifying complex tasks and making a great impact in people’s life, Student can use it for doing assignments, Programmers can use it to create application codes, businesses can use it for marketing, emails/ creating legal letters/contracts,s and long lists of activities. But with the rise of AI, what impact it will have on human jobs? If AI will do everything what will humans do?

How chatGPT started

Chat GPT (Generative Pre-trained Transformer) is a language model created by OpenAI, an artificial intelligence research laboratory. Chat GPT was introduced in 2018, and it is a type of deep learning model that is specifically designed for natural language processing.

The development of Chat GPT started with the creation of a simpler model called GPT-1. This model was trained on a massive dataset of text from the internet and was designed to predict the next word in a sentence. The success of GPT-1 led to the development of a more complex model, GPT-2, which had a greater number of parameters and was able to generate more coherent text.

GPT-2 was notable for its ability to generate text that was very difficult to distinguish from text written by a human. It was capable of writing long-form articles, poetry, and even fiction. However, GPT-2 was not publicly released due to concerns about the potential misuse of the model for generating fake news or propaganda.

Despite this, OpenAI continued to develop the GPT series of models and released GPT-3 in 2020. GPT-3 has a whopping 175 billion parameters, making it the largest language model to date. It is capable of generating even more coherent and human-like text than its predecessors.

The training process for GPT-3 involved feeding it an enormous amount of text data from the internet, including books, websites, and other sources. This allowed the model to learn the nuances of human language and develop a deep understanding of the structure and meaning of text.

The release of GPT-3 has opened up new possibilities for natural language processing and has generated a lot of excitement in the AI community. It has demonstrated the potential for AI to generate creative and original content and has shown that language models can be used in a wide range of applications, from chatbots to content generation.

The development of Chat GPT and the GPT series of models represents a significant milestone in the field of artificial intelligence. These models are capable of generating text that is almost indistinguishable from that written by humans, and they have opened up new possibilities for natural language processing and content generation.

Here are some of the key features of ChatGPT:

  1. Natural Language Processing: ChatGPT is specifically designed to understand and process natural language. It can generate human-like text, understand the meaning behind sentences, and respond to questions and statements in a way that is similar to how a human would.
  2. Large-scale Language Model: ChatGPT is a large-scale language model that has been trained on vast amounts of text data. This allows it to generate responses that are coherent and relevant to the input it receives.
  3. Open-domain Conversational Model: ChatGPT is an open-domain conversational model, which means that it can respond to a wide range of topics and questions. It can engage in a conversation on a variety of topics, from sports to politics to entertainment.
  4. Deep Learning: ChatGPT is based on deep learning, which is a subset of machine learning that uses artificial neural networks to learn from data. This allows it to continually improve its responses based on the data it is trained on.
  5. Transfer Learning: ChatGPT uses transfer learning, which means that it can be trained on one task and then applied to another task. This allows it to be used in a wide range of applications, from chatbots to content generation.
  6. Customizability: ChatGPT can be fine-tuned and customized for specific applications. This means that it can be trained to generate text that is specific to a particular industry or subject area.

Overall, ChatGPT is a powerful language model that is capable of generating coherent and relevant responses to a wide range of topics and questions. Its deep learning and transfer learning capabilities make it a versatile tool for a variety of applications.

ChatGPT is a real revolution and it will have very deep impacts on all aspects of our daily lives. At Canvas ICT we are already using chatGPT for almost all aspects of our business tasks and it has significantly increased our team’s efficiency.
