According to a Pew Research Center survey, most American adults (58%) have heard of the open-access chatbot ChatGPT, but just a small percentage have actually used it. Notably, ChatGPT became the fastest-growing web application in just two months after its launch in late November 2022, gaining over 100 million monthly users. The survey sought to establish how well-known and experienced ChatGPT was among the general public, and it revealed considerable demographic differences in awareness of this AI software.
