ChatGPT Takes Center Stage as Wikipedia’s Most-Viewed Article in 2023

The meteoric rise of ChatGPT to become the most-viewed English article on Wikipedia in 2023 underscores the growing fascination and impact of artificial intelligence (AI) technology on the public. With an impressive 49.5 million page views, ChatGPT outshone other topics, including notable events like “Deaths in 2023” and sports highlights such as the “2023 Cricket World Cup” and the “Indian Premier League.”

The Wikimedia Foundation revealed that English Wikipedia pages collectively received over 84 billion page views in 2023, with ChatGPT stealing the spotlight. Launched just a year earlier in November 2022, the AI language model rapidly gained popularity, surpassing 100 million users within its first year.

In a strategic move to enhance ChatGPT’s functionality, OpenAI reintroduced a live web browsing feature in September 2023. Initially rolled out in May but temporarily disabled due to concerns about online paywalls, the feature returned with additional measures to adhere to website permissions requirements. This live browsing capability transformed ChatGPT from a static data analyzer into a real-time information generator, catering to users seeking dynamic insights into market trends, product reviews, and travel planning.

Moreover, ChatGPT has empowered subscribers with the ability to create customized GPT models. This feature streamlines the experience for advanced users and businesses, eliminating the need for extensive manual prompts and automating interactions with AI.

However, the success of ChatGPT has not come without its share of ethical considerations. In March 2023, a significant development unfolded as thousands of researchers, CEOs, academics, and industry experts in the AI field collectively penned an open letter. The letter urged AI developers globally to pause the development of any AI systems surpassing the capabilities of GPT-4 for at least six months. The signatories expressed concerns about the potential risks posed by “human-competitive intelligence” to society and humanity at large.

ChatGPT’s journey to becoming a Wikipedia sensation is emblematic of the transformative influence AI is having on public discourse, information consumption, and the broader societal conversation around the ethical development of powerful AI systems.
