Where Does ChatGPT Get Its Information From | ANSWERED

To just escape my boredom, I love checking the comments on Reddit regarding several discussions and participating in them. Besides Cillian Murphy’s brilliant character development through the series Peaky Blinders, one of the most discussed topics on subreddits over the months is the pay scale for different professions and legitimate company reviews. The fact that a few well-known companies (I can’t name them, sorry) continue to use artificial intelligence to accomplish tasks faster while firing their human employees is interesting. It is for this reason that they are resorting to robots instead of hiring workers. The extent to which these CEOs go to save a few bucks is ridiculous. And the most affected niche here is resume writing, copywriting, and content creation. And well, some of the company founders are such clodpoles that they believe AI can replace software engineers. So today, I have decided to write an article discussing how purposeful ChatGPT is. Now, since it relies on the question, Where does ChatGPT get its information from, I have an entire heading of this question too. So let us get started.

What Is ChatGPT?

Before we move on to other sections, let us first understand about it. By now, you all might have used ChatGPT and asked it your various queries and experimented with some stuff. Basically, it is like a website, which answers almost most of your questions, but it is not like a search engine. So what is it? According to its parent company OpenAI, ChatGPT is the sibling mode to InstructGPT, which is trained in such a way that it will be following an instruction in a prompt to give you a detailed solution. To understand, what method is used to make it, you can refer to the image below.

How Does ChatGPT Get Its Information?

Answering this question is significant as there are hundreds of stupid fellows, who think ChatGPT can work wonders with their projects and jobs. So, let me give you a few examples to let you know about it. 

Prompt: Did Leonardo da Vinci studied from a school?

Answer: Leonardo da Vinci did receive some formal education, but he did not attend a formal art school as we understand it today. During his early years in Vinci, Italy, he likely received basic education in reading, writing, and mathematics. However, his artistic and scientific pursuits were largely self-taught and driven by his own curiosity and talent.

Leonardo’s artistic training began as an apprentice in the workshop of Andrea del Verrocchio in Florence. Verrocchio was a prominent artist and sculptor of the time, and Leonardo learned various artistic techniques and skills while working alongside him. This apprenticeship provided Leonardo with a foundation in painting, sculpture, and other artistic practices.

While working with Verrocchio, Leonardo also had access to the knowledge and ideas of other artists and intellectuals of the period. He interacted with fellow artists in Florence, which was a vibrant center of artistic and intellectual activity during the Renaissance. Leonardo immersed himself in the city’s rich cultural environment, studying the works of established masters and engaging in discussions with other artists and scholars.

Leonardo da Vinci’s education went beyond the traditional boundaries of art. He was deeply interested in a wide range of subjects, including mathematics, anatomy, engineering, and natural sciences. He conducted his own independent studies, meticulously observing and documenting the world around him. Leonardo’s insatiable curiosity and passion for learning led him to become a true polymath, constantly expanding his knowledge and pushing the boundaries of artistic and scientific understanding.

So, while Leonardo da Vinci did not attend a formal art school, his education was a combination of hands-on apprenticeship, self-directed learning, and engagement with the intellectual and artistic community of his time. His independent and multidisciplinary approach to learning contributed to his extraordinary achievements as an artist, scientist, and inventor.

It looks like ChatGPT summarized the artist’s bio from the prompt, but when I analyzed the information, I found it was completely taken from Wikipedia. And let’s not forget Henri Cavil’s reaction to Wikipedia, which is probably the best. So, to pick one point here is that ChatGPT relies on the information available on the internet and not from the sources of information, which makes it a little unworthy to use for us. 

Prompt: Write the entire murder story of the Regina kay Walters.

Answer: Title: Shattered Innocence: The Murder of Regina Kay Walters


A modest room decorated with posters and photographs. Seventeen-year-old REGINA KAY WALTERS, a vibrant and innocent girl, sits on her bed, engrossed in a book. Suddenly, a knock on the door startles her.


She opens the door to reveal ROBERT BEN RHODES, a middle-aged man with a sinister smile.

Hello, Regina. My truck broke down, and I need to use your phone. Could you please let me in?

Regina hesitates, sensing something off about the man, but her kind nature wins over her caution.

(slightly nervous)
Sure, come on in. The phone is in the kitchen.


Regina watches as Robert pretends to dial a number, a chilling grin spreading across his face.

(faking concern)
Strange. No one’s answering. Mind if I use your bathroom?

It’s down the hall, to the left.


Regina paces in the living room, growing increasingly worried. Suddenly, the sound of a door being forcefully locked reaches her ears, sending shivers down her spine. Panic sets in.

What’s going on? Why did you lock the door?

Robert emerges from the bathroom, his demeanor changed, his eyes filled with malicious intent.

I’m sorry, Regina, but you’re not going anywhere. You belong to me now.


Regina awakens, her hands and feet bound with thick chains, hanging from the ceiling of a dimly lit barn. Fear courses through her veins as she realizes the horrifying truth.

Please, let me go! I haven’t done anything to you!

Robert, now devoid of any pretense, approaches Regina, a camera in his hands.

Oh, my dear, this is just the beginning. We’re going to make beautiful memories together.


Detective JAMES ANDERSON sits across from a visibly shaken JOHN, a witness to the horrors inflicted upon Regina.

Take your time, John. We need to know everything you can remember about those days.

Next, we looked at the true crime story of Regina Kay Walters, who was brutally murdered by the serial killer, Robert Ben Rhoades. What ChatGPT writes here, however, is entirely incorrect. Simply put, the AI platform removes the actual facts when you give it some creative work or stories.

Prompt: Write an explanatory letter in Hindi for society members to inform them, “There must be no sound increasing 55 DB which includes loudspeakers, construction work, furniture work, other nuisances or any other machinery in the society premises to maintain peace and calmness for the residents. Any culprit who does not follow the order must be applicable a fine of rupees 2000 per day. Those who are having furniture and construction for now are given a time period till Friday to finish their jobs. If they exceed their time limit, they shall be liable to give 2000 rupees fine per day and seizure of machinery.” refer to the article for backing the rules and regulations-

Answer: प्रिय सभी सदस्यों को,

सदस्यों की शांति और शांति को बनाए रखने के लिए सोसायटी परिसर में अधिकतम 55 डीबी से अधिक ध्वनि बढ़ाने से संबंधित कोई भी शोर या अवांछनीय परेशानी, जैसे लाउडस्पीकर, निर्माण कार्य, फर्नीचर कार्य, या किसी अन्य मशीनरी का इस्तेमाल नहीं होना चाहिए। किसी भी दोषी को अधिकार नहीं होना चाहिए कि वह आदेश का पालन नहीं करता है, उसे प्रतिदिन 2000 रुपये का जुर्माना लगाया जाएगा। जिनके पास फर्नीचर और निर्माण कार्य चल रहे हैं, उन्हें शुक्रवार तक समय दिया गया है अपने काम को पूरा करने के लिए। यदि वे अपनी समय सीमा से अधिक समय लेते हैं, तो उन्हें प्रतिदिन 2000 रुपये का जुर्माना देना होगा और मशीनरी को जब्त कर लिया जाएगा।

हम सभी जानते हैं कि ध्वनि प्रदूषण एक गंभीर समस्या है और इसके प्रभाव से हमारी सेहत पर नकारात्मक प्रभाव पड़ सकता है। हमारे निवासियों की सुख-शांति को सुनिश्चित करने के लिए, हमें इस नए नियम का पूर्णतया पालन करना होगा।

However, this time I asked GPT to draft the letter in Hindi, which I was reluctant to write. Therefore, the letter conveyed a little too good information, but again whatever information I added on prompts and to refer to a website was not processed. As an alternative, it covered everything in Hindi, even the name of the website and not the content from it. Simply put, it means that GPT is incapable of processing information from a particular website.

By now, you must have the answer to where does ChatGPT get its information from. If someday the internet has a blackout on information and data, ChatGPT is nowhere useful. One of the most important things to note here is that despite how many prompts you add, the system will never personalise the information, as per your preferences. After taking help to write meta descriptions for a few articles, it repeated the same style, which quickly became repetitive and boring.

Let me now address your next question.

Should You Rely on ChatGPT for Information?

According to my experience, hundreds of websites and articles contain similar topics, but only a few contain relevant information. And this can be only clarified with the resources it mentions. In contrast, ChatGPT does not have such functions to present all the information based on the right resources. So, sadly the answer is NO!

The best part is only a few individuals search on ChatGPT for their assignments and jobs. 

How Does ChatGPT Benefit Professionals?

So, the bigger question can be whether ChatGPT is a total waste platform for professionals. I don’t have a straightforward answer. It can be useful, however, for repetitive tasks such as writing common query letters and notices. And upto some extent for lesser coding prompts, it can be helpful. But, hey, you can not generate the entire website with ChatGPT. 

Next, if you wish to write letters, emails and notices in other languages, you are unaware of, you can use ChatGPT for the purpose as well. 


There is no machine capable of replacing the beautiful and complex mind of a human. Although it could assist in repetitive work that is time-consuming or loosen productivity, hiring ChatGPT would be foolish.

Frequently Asked Questions.

Does ChatGPT have access to the internet?

Yes, ChatGPT has access to the internet. Without the internet, one can’t find answers to the prompts they typed on the platform.

What information does ChatGPT have access to?

A response is generated based on the information it learns from training data, which leaves room for error. In addition, ChatGPT only has access to information up to 2021, which the AI trainers feed them.

Does ChatGPT share your data?
