About six in ten American adults (58%) have heard of ChatGPT, but few have tried it themselves. This is evidenced by the results of a survey Pew Research Center, conducted in March.

According to the results, 18% of US adults have heard a lot about ChatGPT, 39% have heard a little, and 42% have not heard at all.

These indicators are influenced by various factors, including education. For example, among American adults who have completed postgraduate studies, 32% of respondents have heard a lot about the program, and 47% have heard a little. Among bachelors, 71% of respondents have heard of ChatGPT, and among those with higher education – 59%. Among those with a high school education or less, 41% of Americans are familiar with ChatGPT.

The survey results also show that men are more likely than women to have heard at least a little about ChatGPT. As for the purpose of using the app, only 14% of American adults use it for entertainment, learning, or work. Among those who heard about chat, 19% used it for entertainment, and 14% – to learn new things. About one in ten adults who have heard of ChatGPT and are employed use it at work.

The situation with age is also interesting. For example, American adults under 30 who have heard of chat are much more likely than those 65 and older to use it for entertainment (31% vs. 4%).

The opinions of the interviewees regarding the usefulness of ChatGPT are ambiguous. About a third of people find it extremely (15%) or very useful (20%). Another 39% of respondents called the chatbot somewhat useful, 21% of people called it not very useful, and 6% called it not at all useful. At the same time, young people find the program more useful than older people.

We will remind you that recently OpenAI released a free ChatGPT application for iPhone in the US. It includes support for voice input using the Whisper AI speech recognition model and can sync chat history with the web version of the AI assistant.
