You may have already heard of ChatGPT, an online AI chatbot released by OpenAI near the end of last year. If you’re interested in using this software, you may be wondering if it is free.
It is safe to say that ChatGPT has become a viral sensation. If you are not intimidated by artificial intelligence, we highly recommend trying out this model. ChatGPT operates by opening a question-and-answer style human dialogue between you and the AI, enabling you to ask it almost anything you want.
The AI has the capability to solve coding problems, write well-constructed essays, and even engage in discussions about philosophical issues related to AI.
Currently, you can use the ChatGPT chatbot for free directly from OpenAI’s website. OpenAI has stated that ChatGPT is in its feedback stage. The company’s strategy is likely to make the service free to attract as many users as possible. And what is the benefit for them?
OpenAI is probably using interactions with the AI to enhance the service and gather more data on human communication to further improve the model. It is unlikely that the service will remain free forever and OpenAI will probably start charging for it at some point.
If you are looking to use OpenAI’s models for commercial purposes, it will come at a cost, which can be done through OpenAI’s API. We will provide more detailed information below, as it can become more complex.
AI chatbots can be intimidating, but they are also an inevitability. Our AI capabilities have been rapidly advancing year after year, and it was only a matter of time before a conversational AI bot like ChatGPT would be made available on the web.
What is GPT in Chat GPT?
The GPT in ChatGPT stands for Generative Pre-training Transformer, which is a type of neural network architecture commonly used for natural language processing tasks such as text generation. Each part of the name can be broken down into three sections.
As the name suggests, “generative” refers to the model’s ability to generate text, while “pre-training” signifies that the model is trained on large amounts of data. This allows the AI to learn general patterns and features of everyday text and conversations, which is why the bot is so human-like when you interact with it.
Lastly, “Transformer” refers to the architecture of the AI model. Developed by Google researchers in 2017, it has become widely popular in the natural language processing field. In short, it allows ChatGPT to handle both long and short requests and generate text of varying length based on the prompt given.

The OpenAI API (Application Programming Interface) is a tool for developers who wish to take advantage of OpenAI’s language models, including but not limited to ChatGPT. It is a paid service, however, OpenAI has made it free for non-commercial and educational use.
The API essentially allows you to input text to receive generated responses for tasks such as question answering and text summarization. Developers who want to experiment can access OpenAI’s pre-trained models on GitHub, where they can modify the models for free and fine-tune them using their own data.
