That time has here. AI is also unreliable. Namely, the much-talked-about ChatGPT chatbot from OpenAI has been inaccessible. The website has been out for a few hours, and several people have reported issues with it.
We can see that it’s not an unique server problem but rather a widespread problem by looking at the site health monitor Down Detector, which contains hundreds of reports from OpenAI ChatGPT and GPT-4 users. A large number of customers worldwide were unable to utilise the service once the issues began about 08:45 GMT.
“Outage on chat.openai.com,” says the website’s headline for OpenAI. The cause of the outage is unknown, according to reports and government sources. Yet of those who reported issues, 82% cited ChatGPT, 11% the login process, and 7% the website. It’s interesting to note that there have been a couple more cases recently.
CHATGPT IS OPEN NOW.
The service had resumed as of the writing of this sentence. ChatGPT responded when users enquired about the issue, “I don’t have access to information regarding ChatGPT’s unique technical difficulties or outages,” and “I don’t have the capacity to monitor the operation of the system or its components.
While many users reported the problem, others voiced dissatisfaction that they were paying $20 per month and weren’t receiving their money’s worth because of the downtime.
By the way, OpenAI debuted their chatbot with AI in late 2022. Yet, the most recent version of the software was made public earlier this month. It has achieved great success. Microsoft, which has included it into a number of its products, including Microsoft Office 365 and Microsoft Power Copilot, is one of its supporters. Of course, a lot of other businesses are incorporating GPT-4 into a range of goods and services. Yet, Microsoft was the first to “smell” a potential opportunity to make the company even more successful than it already was.
