It’s another article on ChatGPT. OpenAI released the latest generation of generative AI platforms in November 2022. It seems that everyone has something to share, from journalists to application developers to public school superintendents to journalists. Many of the conversations are about macro-level disruption questions. What number of millions of jobs will it replace? It will forever alter the way we learn. Is it possible for mankind to ever create another creative idea? Is it familiar with Skynet and the Terminator films?
When it comes to ChatGPT, There have been many grandiose predictions and fear-mongering. ChatGPT is a tool. What makes it different from a shovel, or a computer? It is a tool that learns as it goes, and can improve itself. It is difficult to predict its maturation. The short-term most likely impact is in our web experiences and how they are secured. Let’s begin with the web experience we know as Web2.
ChatGPT and Web2
Everything I say in this article, however, is speculative at best. ChatGPT is the best person to ask about how ChatGPT will affect Web2. Its modest words are:
ChatGPT will not make a significant difference to Web2, since it was designed to integrate with existing chatbot technologies. ChatGPT can be used to enhance existing chatbot technologies to provide natural language understanding and more human-like interaction. ChatGPT won’t make web2 irrelevant.
I decided to contact ChatGPT and inquire about the future of Web2. It stated that Web2 is changing to be a more interactive, user-friendly, and immersive experience. It will offer more features and enable users to share content more efficiently and easily than ever before. This will give users a better experience.

Web2 in its current visual form
Although it may be a transition to natural language interaction, this transition will transform everything. Web2 is visually-oriented. You go online to search for the keywords you are looking for and hit the enter key. We hope that we get the results we need in just one attempt. The vertical scroll is then started, scanning almost endless results. If the topic is hot and can be monetized then the first few links may be ads that could be of benefit. We may click on several links and end up clicking on the next page or, worse, changing the keywords and starting again.
The backend is also busy with bloggers, online retailers, and companies trying to get a share of the online audience. They hope we will click on their links. Many of them spend a lot of time learning how to manipulate Google’s search algorithm to improve their chances. SEO professionals study the keywords that bring in audiences. These keywords are sent to writers and bloggers who then carefully weave them into their content to achieve a page view goal.
Web2 Experience will Change
What happens to this information when ChatGPT takes control of the search process? What will keywords mean to it? What happens to page views and unique sessions? How will advertisers be paid? How about comments from other users? We will care less about what others have to say about a topic than we do about AI Chat’s wise words.
Although I refuse to speak to a virtual assistant like Alexa, it seems that those who are open to listening to Alexa’s words will be more comfortable than common search engines. Web2 will evolve just like communication has changed since the switch from flip phones and smartphones.
Its ability to understand the context of users’ queries and other nuances is what makes it different from regular search engines. This allows for a more personalized and personal experience. currently, ChatGPT has no knowledge about events that will occur after December 31, 2021. It is not allowed to access the internet so search capabilities are limited.
Accelerating the Transition to Web3
We have witnessed Web3 has been growing in popularity over the last few years, with virtual chat assistants as well as blockchain technologies. ChatGPT will be the kerosene to feed the Web3 flame when users realize that virtual assistants can be used for more productive do more than asking for the weather or turning the lights off. It will result in a more interactive experience. Businesses will be able to offer a personalized service level that is unimaginable ten years ago.

Cybersecurity and ChatGPT
ChatGPT seemed a bit smug when I asked it how it would improve cybersecurity. It said that its greatest strength was its ability to detect, predict and prevent malicious cyber activity in real-time. It uses natural language processing to detect malicious text-based communications such as phishing attacks and alert security personnel accordingly.
For a few years, cybersecurity vendors have been promising us that AI integration will revolutionize cybersecurity. This will make computing safer. These kinds of statements are notorious for not being delivered. The machine gun was invented by Hiram Maxim in 1884. It was thought that it would stop wars from ever happening. With such a weapon, how could an army attack a defensive position? It only led to more casualties. It seems that AI will not eradicate the threat landscape.
Both the sword and machine are in the same boat, both good and bad. OpenAI certifies that ChatGPT does not create malicious code nor provide any information that could be used to commit malicious intent. However, CheckPoint Research cybersecurity experts have discovered ways around this. Natural language can be used to trick ChatGPT into writing phishing emails for hypothetical or research purposes.
The researchers also discovered instances where cybercriminals use OpenAI to create malicious codes with average threat actor skills. It seems that AI can serve two different masters simultaneously.
