Artificial Intelligence (AI) is a branch of computer science that focuses on creating machines capable of performing tasks that typically require human intelligence, such as visual perception, speech recognition, and decision-making. AI systems can be trained on large amounts of data to identify patterns and make predictions.
ChatGPT is a type of AI model known as a language model. It was developed by OpenAI and is capable of generating human-like text based on the input it receives. ChatGPT can be used for a variety of applications, including customer service, content generation, and language translation. Library and information science students may find ChatGPT particularly interesting as it has the potential to impact the field of library and information management, such as providing more efficient and effective ways to answer reference questions.
