Within two months of its launch, the chatbot by OpenAI became the fastest-growing internet application ever to exist. According to research by Similarweb, the chatbot had 590 million visits by 100 million users in the month of January. AI Chatbot was made available for free in the public domain in the month of November last year, and it has expanded its user base faster than any other app leaving behind popular apps like Tik Tok and Instagram.

The much-hyped ChatGPT is an AI chatbot by the research organisation: OpenAI which was founded by Elon Musk, Sam Altman, Peter Thiel, Reid Hoffman, Jessica Livingston, Ilya Sutskever, and others. The chatbot is a language processing-based AI model trained to generate human-like responses for any query presented to it. What makes the chatbot unique is its efficiency in generating responses specific to the query in the most conversational manner. The dialogue-based model makes it answer follow-up questions, correct mistakes, and even reject inappropriate requests.
