Why does ChatGPT performance deteriorate during use?

Last update: 13.03.2024.

During the continuous use of ChatGPT, I have noticed that its capabilities seem to deteriorate.
I conclude that both the questions entered and the answers accepted are part of machine learning. As a result, a lot of the incorrect code that is entered becomes part of the database, just like the scripts that are corrected and created. I only use it for programming, so I have no insight into the other segments, but the change is striking. It still solves almost everything but needs more rewriting and refinement.

I asked “him” what he thought about it.

The performance of ChatGPT can deteriorate during use for several reasons:

  1. Contextual drift: ChatGPT generates responses based on the context it receives. As the conversation progresses, the model’s understanding of the context may shift or drift, leading to responses that become less relevant or coherent over time.
  2. Lack of new information: ChatGPT is trained on a fixed dataset up to a certain knowledge cutoff date (in this case, September 2021). As new information emerges, the model may not be aware of recent events or developments, leading to outdated or inaccurate responses.
  3. Exposure to biases: GPT-3, like other language models, learns from vast amounts of internet text, which may contain biases present in the data. Over time, the model may inadvertently reinforce or exhibit these biases in its responses.
  4. Repetitive responses: ChatGPT does not have memory of previous interactions, so it may unintentionally generate repetitive or generic responses when faced with similar prompts.
  5. Lack of common sense reasoning: While ChatGPT can provide impressive answers, it lacks real-world understanding and common sense reasoning. It may sometimes generate responses that sound plausible but are actually nonsensical or illogical.
  6. Exploitation by users: Some users may attempt to exploit the system’s weaknesses, leading to degraded performance. For example, they might intentionally confuse or mislead the model to observe amusing or erroneous responses.
  7. Long-range dependencies: Language models like GPT-3 can struggle with long-range dependencies, meaning they may lose coherence in generating long conversations that require consistent context across multiple turns.

It’s important to note that while ChatGPT is powerful and versatile, it is not a perfect system. Continuous research and development are required to address these limitations and improve its performance over time. Regularly updating and retraining the model with new data can also help mitigate some of these issues.
