ChatGPT Statistics

It was difficult to get this page together because ChatGPT has only been online for 1.5+ months now and there is not an abundance of key numbers or stats to present quite yet.

With this being said, I’ll now explain what ChatGPT statistics I’ve learned about which I’ve gathered to-date in this Chat GPT 2023 Stats, Facts & Data Report on both OpenAI and the ChatGPT chat bot internet sensation.

ChatGPT Stats, Facts & Data Report

1. ChatGPT Is The Fastest Platform to Reach 1 Million Users

ChatGPT is the 1st website or online platform to reach one million members in less than one week. This stat also includes gaming platforms and online games as well.

ChatGPT reached one million active users in 14.28% the time it took the Angry Birds mobile game to get one million users. That’s 7 times faster than AngryBirds time to reach 1M users.
Before ChatGPT set this new record in late November 2022, AngryBirds was the fastest online platform to reach 1M active users, reaching the mark at thirty five days.
Based on the rapid growth of ChatGPT until now its expected the model will reach the one billion users before the end of the year (2023).
The cost to operate ChatGPT is currently $100,000 each day.
The trending chatbot receives an estimated 11M+ (Million) queries every day.
OpenAI has received more than 300 Million visitors to Chat GPT in the first 45 days since launch.

2. ChatGPT Launched Online on November 30th, 2022

These language model stats on Chat GPT explain how the transformer model works.

ChatGPT, the popular new AI chatbot and AI search engine, uses a transformer language model trained on large datasets taken from the internet up through 2001.
It uses deep learning (DL) to perform natural language processing (NLP) tasks, such as language translations, text summarization, and answering questions from ChatGPT users with a high degree of accuracy.
The GPT-3 based AI platform can generate human like written text, making it an incredibly useful tool for both writers and content producers.

3: ChatGPT was Developed by OpenAI

Chat GPT was developed using GPT-3 by OpenAI – a leading artificial intelligence technology company.

OpenAI is the AI industry leader having created critical models such as GPT, GPT-2, GPT-3, GPT-3.5 and soon in early 2023 the feverish AI company will be releasing its much anticipated GPT4.
Once ChatGPT is running on GPT-4 and eventually has access to current internet data it could become a legitimate concern to Google Search. Microsoft’s main reason to invest another $10 Billion into the company. It wants to have a chance to take on Google in search.
This reported deal has not gone through yet officially, so until the deal’s ink is on the paper, there’s possibly still time for Google to come in with a winning offer of their own before Microsoft gets even more involved and takes a 49% ownership position in OpenAI, according to and other media outlets covering the story as it develops.
January 17th Update – Microsoft’s CEO announces the software giant’s plans to integrate OpenAI’s ChatGPT chatbot across the company’s entire ecosystem of products. This is starting to look like a deal could already be done.

AIgeeked will keep you updated with the official word on the investment once it drops.

4: OpenAI was Founded in 2015 by Tech Titans

OpenAI is the company that created ChatGPT and continues with active development on it.

OpenAI was originally founded in 2015 by a number of tech industry giants which include Sam Altman, Elon Musk, Greg Brockman, John Schulman and Ilya Sutskever.

Sam Altman is currently the operating CEO of OpenAI.
Elon Musk resigned from the OpenAI board of directors in 2018, due to potential conflicts of interest with Tesla’s AI technological developments.
OpenAi’s 2023 Review Projections Are Set to Exceed $200 Million this calendar year.
OpenAI forecasts the company will earn $1 Billion Dollars in revenue by the end of 2024.
OpenAI’s company headquarters are located in San Francisco, California.

OpenAI is the company the gave the world DALL-E and DALL-E 2, two amazing text to image AI systems.

5. Chat GPT is Trained Up Through 2021

ChatGPT was trained on datasets of gathered text data found on the internet through the year 2021.

This means if you ask the ChatGPT chatbot a question about an event that happened after 2021 it is currently unable to answer that question.
Basically, its not possible for Chat GPT to process information retrieval or run its NLP & NLG algorithms for that request because it simply doesn’t have access to any information post 2021.
ChatGPT is currently operating on ChatGPT-3.5. Before this, it was operating on ChatGPT-3 and was initially trained on 175 billion data parameters.

6. ChatGPT uses natural language processing (NLP) algorithms to understand data input.

Using NLP & deep neural networks (DNNs), ChatGPT provides users with often accurate answers to a very large number of complex questions they may ask.

It does this surprisingly fast, within a matter of seconds!
This emerging artificial intelligence (AI) technology allows the AI chatbot to quickly and accurately respond to user entries based on what it has learned to-date for a majority and high percentage of user searches.
When it is unable to answer a user’s input then it responds by stating it is unable to answer/respond to the inputted data for the given reason of that particular instance.

7. Microsoft plans to use OpenAI’s GPT models across entire business system.

On Tuesday January 17 2023, the CEO of Microsoft formerly announced its plans to integrate Chat GPT across all Microsoft products.

January 17th 2023, at an interview with Wall Street Journal at the World Economic Forum in Davos Switzerland, Satya Nadella – Chairman and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Microsoft, announced the technology company’s plan to integrate ChatGPT into all Microsoft products.

January 17th 2023, Microsoft’s CEO Nadella talks about the soon to come OpenAI API after brushing over the journalist’s question about securing an additional investment in OpenAI.

The implications of this are massive. Google has never had a real competitor in the search market before. Not until now. When Microsoft lets a ChatGPT powered Bing search loose on its own knowledge of content on the internet then could actually begin to compete with Google in the search engine landscape.

8. The “ChatGPT – GPT 3” app was downloaded 3,771 times in the 1st 10 days of January 2023.
