ChatGPT is not your typical chatbot featured in every customer service portal corner. The advanced AI-powered application can follow "a conversational style," capable of comprehending natural language and responding accordingly. According to OpenAI, "the dialogue format makes it possible for ChatGPT to answer follow-up questions, admit its mistakes, challenge incorrect premises, and reject inappropriate requests."

The limitations of the system

The system is not without its inherent problems, even though researchers try their best to solve the challenges by evolving the system with further data sets. The team reports that the chatbot is prone to giving out "plausible-sounding but incorrect or nonsensical answers" in a few instances. 

The application is also sensitive to changes in input phrasing. The content is getting excessively verbose with the overuse of specific phrases, and its lack of follow-up questions to ambiguous inputs are also stated as possible bugs in the system. 

Researchers are also trying to fix the chances of ChatGPT responding to harmful instructions or exhibiting biased behavior in some instances. The team is trying to "warn or block certain types of unsafe content" to solve this issue.
