News Corner

This is an update on the use of OpenAI’s chat GPT technology, which is a deep learning tool that produces human-like text based on a given prompt. The technology has been well-received, attracting over a million users within five days of its release. It has a wide range of capabilities, including the ability to write software code and formulate responses to prompts. In the healthcare industry, chat GPT can potentially be used to streamline communications and train personnel, as well as to retrieve information about drugs, symptoms, and clinical trials when integrated with layers of medical validation. Currently, there is no component of blockchain being used in chat GPT, but the technology has the potential to change society’s expectations and may be improved and used in new applications in the future. The fact that it was made available to the public for free is a step towards fair distribution of technology. The host of the show invites listeners to share their experiences with chat GPT and ideas for its use in the Health Unchained Telegram channel.
