Model of chat GPT

Chat GPT is based on the GPT-3.5  model which is a variant of  GPT (Generative Pre-trained Transformer) model developed by open AI. It was trained on a massive data set containing trillions of words. It has 175 billion parameters, making it one of the largest language models created to date. This large parameter count enables GPT-3.5 to generate highly coherent and contextually relevant responses  across a wide range of topics. The training process involves predicting the next word in a sentence given the previous words. By training  on  a massive dataset, GPT-3.5 learns patterns, grammar and semantics of natural language.

Features of GPT-3.5:

  1. Model size: GPT-3.5 is a massive language model with 175 billion parameters which allows it to capture complex language patterns and generate high quality responses.
  2. Pre-Training: GPT-3.5 goes through a pre-training phase where it is exposed to a vast amount of publicly available text data from the internet. By predicting the next word in a sentence, the model learns grammar, syntax, context, and common sense reasoning.
  3. Contextual Understanding: GPT-3.5 demonstrates an impressive ability to understand and generate contextually relevant responses. It captures long- range dependencies in the input text and utilizes the context provided to generate coherent outputs.
  4. Language Generation: GPT-3.5 excels in language generation tasks. It can generate human-like text in various styles and tones and it can produce coherent and contextually appropriate responses to prompt or queries.
  5. Few-Shot Learning: GPT-3.5 has the capability of performing few-shot learning, which means it can adapt to new prompts with minimal examples or instructions. It can generalize from a smaller number of examples and provide reasonable responses.

Architecture and Working of chat GPT Model:

  1. Transformer model: The GPT architecture is based on the transformer model, which is a neural network architecture designed to process sequential data, such as text. The transformer model utilizes self attention mechanisms to capture dependencies and relationships between words in a sequence.
  2. Encoder-Decoder structure: The GPT architecture primarily focuses on auto regressive language generation, where the model generates text based on previously generated words. It employs a decoder. The model learns to predict the next word in a sequence given the context of preceding words.
  3. Tokenization and Embeddings: The input text is tokenized, breaking it down into smaller units such as words, sub words, or characters. Each token is then converted into a high dimensional vector representation   called an embedding. These embeddings capture the semantic meaning of the tokens and their relative positions in the input sequence.

  1. Positional Encoding: Since Transformer do not inherently understand the order or position of tokens, positional encodings are added to the token embeddings. Positional encodings provide information about the relative positions of tokens in the input sequence, allowing the model to understand the order of the tokens.
  2. Stacked Transformer Encoder layers: The GPT architecture consists of multiple layers of transformer encoders. Each encoder layer contains a self-attention mechanism and feed forward neural Networks.
  3. Self-attention Mechanism: The self attention mechanism  allows the model to attend to different parts of the input sequence, capturing relationships between words. It calculates attention scores between each token and every other token and the resulting weighted sum of token embedding provides a context-aware representation of each token.
  4. Feed-forward Neural Networks: After self-attention, the token representation passes through position –wise feed forward neural networks. These networks apply fully connected layers with non-linear activation functions, allowing the model to capture complex relationships and generate contextualized representations.
  5. Pre-training: Models undergo a pre-training phase where they are trained on a large corpora of text data. During pre-training , the model learns to predict the next word in a sentence based on the context provided by the preceding words. This process helps the model develop a general understanding of language, grammar, syntax, and semantic relationships.
  6. Fine Tuning: After pre-training , the model is fine tuned on specific downstream tasks. Fine tuning involves training the model on task-specific datasets to optimize its performance for tasks such as text classification, sentiment analysis, language generation.


  1. Lack of common sense and Real –World Knowledge: GPT-3.5 lacks real- world knowledge and commonsense reasoning. It does not have access to up-to-date information or the ability to verify facts, making it prone to generating incorrect or nonsensical responses.
  2. Limited Control and Specificity: GPT-3.5 lacks fine-grained control over its output. Users may find it challenging to guide the model to produce responses that precisely match their desired specifications. The model may exhibit some level of randomness and unpredictability in its generation process.
  3. Generating Plausible but incorrect information: Due to its vast pre-training on diverse text sources, GPT-3.5 may generate responses that appear plausible but are factually incorrect or misleading. It does not have built in mechanisms to validate or fact-check the information it generates.
