Tim Gorichanaz in The Conversation: Celebrating One Year of ChatGPT and Unveiling the Human Connection Behind AI

Launched on Nov. 30, 2022, ChatGPT took the AI world by storm, marking a breakout year for artificial intelligence. Going viral within days, the chatbot saw unprecedented success, surprising even its creator, OpenAI. By January 2023, ChatGPT reached 13 million daily users, setting a record for the fastest-growing consumer application.
