As an artificial intelligence system, ChatGPT from OpenAI has attracted a lot of attention since its public introduction last December. The chatbot can write texts, answer questions, and even program software. However, there are concerns that ChatGPT could lead to human jobs being replaced by artificial intelligence.

Some companies have already started to replace employees with the system, especially in microtasks such as composing text blocks or assisting with research. Experts, however, believe that ChatGPT cannot completely replace the work of human employees and should rather be seen as a new tool that can be integrated into workflows.

While productivity can be increased by using ChatGPT, there is a risk that fewer employees will be needed, leading to layoffs. However, there is also a possibility that companies will quickly realize that many things do not work as well as they had envisioned, since no AI system is flawless and it requires a lot of maintenance and correction effort.

In addition, there are concerns about the quality of the texts generated by ChatGPT and the technical competence of the users. Also, the system is very opaque, and establishing a stable quality level has so far been an unresolved issue.

Regarding software development, due to the shortage of skilled workers, there is interest in whether ChatGPT can facilitate the work of programmers. Experts believe that ChatGPT can be used in this area to create rough drafts and serves as an effective tool for increasing productivity. However, there is no danger of programmers being replaced by ChatGPT.

Experts agree that ChatGPT is still in an early stage of development and its capabilities will continue to evolve. The possibility of using one’s own training data to develop specialized versions of ChatGPT for specific programming languages or technical subfields is seen as potentially very useful. In the short term, ChatGPT is not expected to have a significant impact on the job market, but in the long term, it will be exciting to see how the technology develops.

In mid-March, artificial intelligence received an upgrade to GPT-4, and paying Plus customers can already try this out on OpenAI’s website. The new bot is said to be far superior to its predecessor. We can look forward to seeing what happens in the world of AI.
