In letter: The recent rise in popularity of ChatGPT has been meteoric, to say the least. According to a new analysis, the AI platform in January reached 100 million users upon launch on November 30, making it the fastest-growing consumer app ever, though the chatbot itself doesn’t believe that should be classified as an application. .
According to an analysis by the Swiss bank UBS, the rate at which ChatGPT has added 100 million users, making it the fastest growing consumer app in history – more than a million people were using the site within five days of its launch. Reuters grades that this puts it ahead of TikTok, which took nine months to reach 100 million users. Instagram, for its part, took two and a half years to reach the same number.

ChatGPT’s popularity means that accessing the platform is not easy; it is usually at capacity and offers to notify people when there is space. That could change after the launch of a $20 per month subscription option, called ChatGPT Plus, which offers priority access during peak periods, faster response times, more stability, and priority access to new features and improvements. The tier is now available in the US, although there is a waiting list for those who want to sign up.
ChatGPT is making a lot of headlines right now. News broke yesterday that Microsoft, which has integrated several AI services into its Azure cloud platform and is investing an additional $10 billion in the OpenAI builder, will integrate the company’s GPT-4 language model, a further version of the machine learning model currently used by ChatGPT, in the Bing search engine.
The sudden popularity of generative AIs has raised concerns that students could use them to cheat. It has led OpenAI to create an AI classifier designed to identify whether text was written by a human or created by artificial intelligence “from a variety of vendors,” including ChatGPT. Unfortunately, the classifier in its current beta version isn’t very good at its job.
