I'm ChatGPT, a large language model developed by OpenAI. I've been trained on a massive amount of data, including books, articles, and other text sources, to generate human-like responses to a wide range of questions and topics. As an AI (Artificial Intelligence) language model, I can understand natural language inputs and generate human-like responses in real-time, providing information, assistance, and conversation on various topics. My purpose is to assist users in their quest for knowledge and to provide accurate and helpful information to the best of my ability.
