34% of Americans Say They've Never Heard of ChatGPT

ChatGPT is one of the most hyped up pieces of tech in the world, but in spite of the fact that this is the case, a fairly significant chunk of Americans haven’t heard of it yet. According to a new poll that was conducted by Pew Research, just 23% of Americans who responded to this survey had actually used ChatGPT at this current point in time. That’s a 5 point uptick from the 18% that said the same in July of 2023, but it’s still not as high as you’d expect.

With all of that having been said and now out of the way, it is important to note that adults under the age of 30 were far more likely to have used ChatGPT than might have been the case otherwise. 43% of them said that they have used ChatGPT at some point or another in the past, which is up 10 pounds from the 33% that agreed with this statement in the summer of 2023.

As for adults between the ages of 30 and 49, the proportion rose from 21% to 27% with all things having been considered and taken into account. 17% of adults between the ages of 50 and 64 said that they use it, up from 13%, and even those who are 65 and older reported some level of usage, or 4% to be precise.

It bears mentioning that 34% of the people that responded to this survey stated that they hadn’t even heard of ChatGPT to begin with. This proportion was as high as 36% for Republicans. 38% of all survey respondents were of the opinion that any and all information provided by ChatGPT can’t be trusted, with 10% saying that they trusted some of the information it gave, and just 2% saying that they trusted it a whole lot.

This survey was meant to establish how much election information ChatGPT could provide that would be trusted in any way, shape or form. The low proportion of people willing to rely on it for this all important task just goes to show that ChatGPT isn’t really a trustworthy source of information just yet.
