ChatGPT Gets an Attitude Adjustment to Address Lazy Behavior

Remember when we reported that ChatGPT had the "winter blues" and was getting lazy with its output? There's nothing good about stubborn AI, right?
It turns out that all of that laziness wasn't just our imagination. OpenAI just announced it had a fix for ChatGPT's bad attitude
. The fix should mean the lazy AI will stop taking shortcuts and is less likely to fail you when you need it most.
OpenAI wants to get ChatGPT back on track with this update, ensuring users get more than a half-hearted response from the lazy AI. The company is giving ChatGPT a stern "talking to," along with updates to improve its interactions with us mere humans.
Although OpenAI hasn't been forthcoming with the reasons behind ChatGPT's lazy behavior (maybe we're still attributing it to the winter blues), there's hope on the horizon.
The new GPT-4 Turbo preview model will reduce ChatGPT's lazy output while allowing it to complete stuff like code generation more thoroughly.
The most recent update to ChatGPT's code only applies to the GPT-4 Turbo model currently in a limited preview. That means free users on GPT-3.5 and paying users on GPT-4 are likely to see some of the same lazy behavior, but hopefully, the upgrade will eventually make its way to the other models. That's good because we should all be entitled to an AI model that, you know, acts like AI, right?.
In December, OpenAI suggested a lack of updates and the AI's unpredictable behavior may be at the root of the less-than-stellar performance users were experiencing. Even OpenAI is still a bit puzzled, with the cause of the issues shrouded in ambiguity.
It sounds like they need to get to know their AI a little better.
With all these issues, OpenAI still wants us to know AI bots are getting "smarter, more accurate, and more efficient." Could have fooled us so far, but what do we know? We're just real people.
