Dear Amigos,

How does ChatGPT work? Understanding this is essential to categorize if we consider ChatGPT a useful tool or a worrisome threat. In short, ChatGPT is a “smart” robot, created by OpenAI that learns from the content added in the past, and present. It is a trained model that uses millions of data that allows the AI to understand prompts (questions or requests) and give human-like responses. So it is normal to have the fear and the curiosity of asking: Could it become sooner or later better than us? Lately, concerns have arisen regarding whether ChatGPT represents a threat to the creative industry.

As of 2024, we firmly believe that ChatGPT is not the enemy, but more like a really helpful friend. Our amigo (for now) but not a very accurate or original one. While ChatGPT is capable of producing remarkable outputs, it lacks the depth and soul of human creativity. Its contributions, though valuable, often feel average and not genuine. Let’s have a closer look to how does chatGPT work.

How does ChatGPT work?

This “smart” robot learns from all the text inputs we add  (now and in the past). When you ask something, it uses all the previous content known to give an “accurate” answer.

It’s a trained model that helps it understand what you are saying. GPT stands for “Generative Pre-trained Transformer”. It leverages a large neural network architecture to understand the prompt (question or request) and create a logical answer feels human-like. ChatGPT’s model learns patterns, and identifies relationships between a vast amounts of data. These allow the intelligence to generate coherent answers. As OpenAI markets its product “Get instant answers, find creative inspiration, learn something new.

So, will AI conquer humanity?

As of today, we’ve heard it all. The speculations about ChatGPT evolving into a conscious entity capable of dominating humanity are through the roof. But the truth is, for now, that is all they are, speculations. Will AI ever be a conscious intelligence? That’s uncertain, but we are inclined to say “No, don’t be silly”, but that is our opinion. If you want to study more in-depth how does ChatGPT work, his model, and the implications it could have in the future we advise you to have a deep look into OpenAI as a company, and in terms of tech development.

Guy Raz interviews Sam Altman, OpenAI CEO, regarding this subject in his podcast “How I Built This”. Make sure to check it out. Here is the episode on Spotify and ApplePodcasts.

This tool serves as a time-saving asset for creatives, allowing us to focus on what truly matters. Don’t be afraid of it, embrace it. The future of creativity may indeed involve a shift towards editing and curating existing ideas, something that is already happening. Nothing comes from nothing, everything has an origin, a history. We live in a constant “remix”. ChatGPT facilitates this “editing” process by streamlining access to vast amounts of information in shorter periods.

Crafting Creativity: The Art Director’s Perspective

Being an exceptional creative or art director involves more than generating ideas. It requires refining concepts, curating references, and filling campaigns with the right blend of creativity and strategy. ChatGPT complements this process by providing a platform for idea generation and refinement, ultimately enhancing the creative flow, not creating it.

Maximizing ChatGPT’s Potential

While ChatGPT enhances efficiency and productivity, it is crucial to approach its output with caution. As an ever-evolving model, it may occasionally produce content riddled with plagiarism or inaccuracies. Therefore, it should be used as a tool for inspiration and assistance rather than a substitute for human creativity and critical thinking. Now that you know how ChatGPT works, you have a better understatement of its possibilities and limitations.

Unlock ChatGPT’s Capabilities

Here are some tasks where ChatGPT can come in handy:

  1. Summarizing content

Let’s embrace the journey of exploration, experimentation, and growth. Welcome the “new” with open arms and shape it to suit your creative vision.

Conclusion: Toward a Collaborative Future

In conclusion, ChatGPT isn’t a threat but a catalyst for innovation in the creative industry. Leveraging its capabilities responsibly and supplement it with human ingenuity. With Artificial Intelligence we can create synergies that propel us towards a future where creativity knows no bounds.
