Exactly one year ago, OpenAI introduced a simple web app called ChatGPT. It wasn’t the first AI chatbot, but it became a significant tech phenomenon over the following months.

Some thought it signaled the arrival of sentient AI ready to take over the world, while others placed their hope in OpenAI. This debate has continued, fueled by OpenAI’s drama and various conspiracy theories.

In reality, living with ChatGPT for a year showed that neither extreme opinion was entirely true. ChatGPT has indeed had an impact, disrupting various areas, like its role in the SAG-AFTRA strikes and gaining attention from the federal government.

However, life mostly continues as before. A Pew survey in May 2023 revealed that 58% in the U.S. had heard of ChatGPT, but only 14% had tried it. The user base has not kept growing, and even though ChatGPT became the fastest-growing tech product initially, Threads later claimed that record.

As a writer and editor, ChatGPT plays a smaller role in the industry than you might think. It was a big deal at launch and will likely remain influential, but the real impact might come from integrating this technology seamlessly into our daily products and services.

Looking back at November 2022, it’s unclear if it will be a turning point or a hyped-up footnote in tech history. A year in, the future remains uncertain, and that uncertainty is something to be excited about.
