Words escape me about how integral this tool has become to me. I can't imagine going to a world without ChatGPT, and I'm truly nervous about the NYT vs OpenAI lawsuit. Below is most of the stuff I wrote about a year ago:
ChatGPT is a free and paid artificial intelligence chatbot put out by OpenAI.
To use it, click the link below and if it's your first time, I recommend signing in with your Google or Microsoft account to make it easy. Your first time using it will require giving them your phone number to get a text message back. But after that signing in is quite seamless, if you are already logged into Google or Microsoft.
I've had mixed results with it, but I am very excited about it. Probably my disappointment is related with how high I set the bar. Here is that experience:
But this was incredible:
Here are some tweets about it with two examples of issues with it in Japanese:
Nik: What is "A Few Milliseconds Of 2073" about?
ChatGPT: I'm sorry, but I don't have any information about a song or piece of media called "A Few Milliseconds of 2073." Without more context or details, I'm unable to provide any information or analysis. Is there anything else I can help you with?
Nik: If I provide links, can you get information about it?
ChatGPT: As an artificial intelligence, I do not have the ability to browse the internet or access external information beyond what I was trained on. I can only provide information and analysis based on my preexisting knowledge. If you have a specific question or topic that you would like to know more about, I will do my best to help you using the knowledge and resources that I have been trained on. Please let me know if there is anything else I can assist you with.

Nik: Tell me about the Black Loyalist Heritage Centre in Nova Scotia.
ChatGPT: The Black Loyalist Heritage Centre is a museum and interpretive center located in Birchtown, Nova Scotia, which was the largest settlement of Black Loyalists in Canada. The center aims to preserve and interpret the history and heritage of Black Loyalists, who were African Americans who fought on the side of the British during the American Revolutionary War and were subsequently resettled in Nova Scotia and other parts of British North America as part of the Crown's promise of freedom.
The center is housed in a restored historic building that was once the home of a Black Loyalist family, and it features exhibits and interactive displays that explore the experiences of Black Loyalists and their contributions to the development of Canada. The center also offers educational programs, workshops, and events related to Black Loyalist history and culture.
The Black Loyalist Heritage Centre is an important cultural attraction in Nova Scotia and a significant site for those interested in African American history and the history of Canada. It serves as a reminder of the important role that Black Loyalists played in the founding and development of Canada, and it helps to preserve and celebrate their rich cultural heritage.
Finally in Japanese:

ChatGPT: 35.63,139.65 の座標は、日本の Tokyo 都市内にあります。この地域は、市内の中心部に位置しており、様々な観光スポット、ビジネス、およびランドマークがあります。
I have seen in the news today, that they are coming up with audio support. But considering I am dictating this article, not typing it, and I use TTS all the time to listen to content with my ears rather than read with my eyes. I do not expect it to be a huge change for me.
