ChatGPT Tops Large Language Models On Social
GlobalData’s Social Media Analytics Platform is reporting that in the dynamic landscape of artificial intelligence (AI) large language models (LLMs), OpenAI’s ChatGPT has emerged as the frontrunner with an 89.9% share of voice on platforms like Twitter and Reddit among the top seven LLMs during 2023 (Jan. 1 to Aug. 22).
Smitarani Tripathy, Social Media Analyst at GlobalData, observed that: “These discussions delved into a spectrum of aspects, from AI’s role in approximating human language to concerns about misinformation and the need for ethical oversight. This insight-packed analysis sheds light on the evolving discourse around AI’s influence on communication and creativity.”
Tripathy continued: “Hallucination or fabrication of information was one of the most discussed topics around the mentioned LLMs. Twitter influencers are of the opinion that these AI tools are designed to approximate human language, not truth, and often contain half-truths, misremembered details, and plagiarism, confounding users and raising questions about the accuracy and reliability of AI.”
GlobalData also reported that influencers have highlighted the need for ethical oversight, fact-checking, and input from social scientists and ethicists to align AI systems with human values. Meanwhile, some influencers argue that hallucinations in AI could lead to creativity and understanding human conversation.
Conversations regarding ChatGPT on social media revolved around its diverse capabilities, including data analysis, synthesizing literature reviews, and generating summaries and code.
The launch of the free ChatGPT iOS app in May 2023 stirred excitement across platforms. Influencers expressed predominantly positive sentiments due to the app’s complimentary nature and parity with web features—like cross-device history synchronization.
Moreover, the app’s voice input feature garnered praise for providing comprehensible, precise information.
Tripathy observed that: “Amidst the AI landscape, ChatGPT’s commanding presence in social media discussions is a testament to its significance and impact. The diverse conversations shed light on AI’s multifaceted role, its challenges, and the evolving perspectives of influencers.”
And Tripathy concludes: “These discussions highlight the intersection of technology and human concerns, underscoring the need for responsible development and informed dialogue.”
