The Latest Version of ChatGPT Might Think and Reason Like a Real Human Being

AI has become fairly advanced as of late, but in spite of the fact that this is the case, it still hasn’t reached the status of AGI, or Artifical General Intelligence. This refers to when AI can process and think things through similarly to how human beings would with their natural intelligence levels. The initial version of ChatGPT that took the world by storm was a far cry from general AI, but it seems like ChatGPT 4 might be way closer to the real thing.

With all of that having been said and now out of the way, it is important to note that researchers at Microsoft recently revealed just how advanced ChatGPT has become. In this 155 page paper, the researchers mentioned that ChatGPT is no capable of analyzing clues in a way that seems to allude to AGI, although more research will need to be done before anything conclusive can be proven.

When asked a few logical puzzles, ChatGPT was able to break them down in a way that suggested actual reasoning rather than just simple pattern recognition which is a hallmark of Large Language Models. Microsoft is not trying to claim that AGI is finally here, nor are they saying that ChatGPT is a true consciousness.

Rather, the latest version of the Large Language Model is a step closer to AGI, and the vague definition of the term allows them to make such claims more easily than might have been the case otherwise. Until such a time comes when the term receives a more precise definition, there will be continuous debate on whether or not AGI is here.

However, many companies are wary of making claims that are this bold. Google recently fired one of their engineers that stated that AI was reaching sentience, and despite a lot of theories online, there is no evidence to suggest that the chatbots that people are interacting with have real emotions or desires. It might take decades before we see AGI, but the rapid recent advancements might help things come to fruition sooner rather than later.
