Eli5: how does chatGPT differs from siri?
I’m guessing you are referring to things like asking “what is the tallest building in the world”.
Siri is a speech interface for your phone or computer. If you ask it about the tallest building, it will run a google search and read you the first result. The information you get is the same as if you had googled it yourself.
ChatGPT is a language model. If you ask it about the tallest building, it will scour its database for sentences starting with “The tallest building in the world is…” and then continue the sentence in a way resembling the text samples in its database. There is some chance that the resulting text does contain correct facts, but a way larger chance that it doesn’t because **ChatGPT is not a knowledge database. It does not know anything. Do not ask ChatGPT for knowledge.**
