ChatGPT, also known as 'a large language model developed by OpenAI trained on a massive amount of text', has been raging all over social media and the news over the last few months.

This new AI tools allows users to ask for anything -literally anything- to be written on the spot.

For example, we asked ChatGPT to create a 'speech on the effectiveness of oranges' for us, and this is what is came up with:

Ladies and gentlemen, today, I want to talk to you about the effectiveness of oranges. Oranges are not only delicious and refreshing, but they are also incredibly effective in promoting our health and well-being...

...and it goes on for 6 more paragraphs!

Though very cool and ahead of its time, this new tool also has its downsides...

A recent survey done amongst Canadians revealed the following things:

  • Most Canadians do not trust AI tools, mainly because "they lack emotion/ empathy required to make good decisions." 
  • Close to half of Canadians revealed they were not at all familiar with AI tools like Chatgpt
  • Only 25% of Canadians have used AI tools in the past
  • Only about 36% of Canadians revelaed they think AI tools like ChatGPT are good for society

Generally, Canadians seem to be unfamiliar with ChatGPT and other AI tools. Although not against the idea of integrating this tool in society, most people believe it would not benefit them in any particular way.
