AI ChatGPT Becomes Fastest-Growing App in History
By Movieguide® Staff
The latest in AI technology is a chatbot called ChatGPT, which is reportedly the fastest-growing app in history, according to a new UBS study.
The chatbot from OpenAI had 13 million unique visitors per day in the month of January, in only its second month live.
“In 20 years following the internet space, we cannot recall a faster ramp in a consumer internet app,” USB’s analysts wrote in the study.
The study, which cites data from analytics company Similarweb(Opens in a new window), positions ChatGPT well over other fast-growing apps such as TikTok and Instagram. In comparison, it took nine months for TikTok to reach 100 million monthly active users; for Instagram, it took two and a half years.
Similar to other AI technology, ChatGPT has raised concerns for online safety and integrity, while also paving the way for quicker production and streamlining digital workflows.
ChatGPT has been immensely popular almost immediately after launch, with people using it for a wide variety of tasks, ranging from writing silly poems, to cheating in college essays, to having the bot write malware. Microsoft, who was a previous investor in OpenAI, recently invested an additional $10 billion into the company, and is said to be working on integrating ChatGPT into some of its services, including Bing(Opens in a new window). ChatGPT also caught the attention of Google, who is said to be developing several public-facing AI tools of its own(Opens in a new window).
AI has also been used to remove foul language from movies, as well as violence.
Movieguide® previously reported:
Producers of the upcoming action movie, FALL, recently revealed that they used AI technology to remove over 30 F-word expletives from the movie, bumping it’s rating down to PG-13.
The movie was originally released independently, but Lionsgate recently picked it up for a wide theatrical release.
“When we were filming the movie, we didn’t know if we were R or if we were PG-13, so I said the F-word so many times,” one of the film’s stars Virginia Gardner said. “I think [director Scott Mann] wanted to kill me in post when we were trying to get a PG-13 rating.”
The movie partnered with Flawless, a company that specializes in using AI tech to dub movies in different languages, in order to remove the F-words.
“For a movie like this, we can’t reshoot it. We’re not a big tentpole… we don’t have the resources, we don’t have the time, more than anything else,” director Scott Mann explained. “What really saved this movie and brought it into a wider audience was technology.”
