ChatGPT could hypothetically get hired as an entry level coder if it interviewed at Google, internal document reportedly says
ChatGPT could get hired as an entry-level software engineer at Google, internal communications cited by CNBC said.
"Amazingly ChatGPT gets hired at L3 when interviewed for a coding position," a note reported by CNBC said.
ChatGPT's popularity has surged since it launched to the public in late 2022.
ChatGPT could hypothetically pass interviews to be hired as an entry-level software engineer at Google, CNBC reported Tuesday, citing internal Google tests of the tech.
Google has been testing its own beta chatbot created using its LaMDA — Language Model for Dialogue Applications — technology against ChatGPT by feeding both products prompts and comparing the answers, according to CNBC's reporting, which cites sources and internal Google communications.
"Amazingly ChatGPT gets hired at L3 when interviewed for a coding position," a note in one internal document comparing LaMDA and ChatGPT said, per CNBC.
L3 is an entry-level job grading for a software engineer at Google, and usually applies to new college graduates and those in their first coding job.
When asked whether ChatGPT and AlphaCode — an AI coding system designed by Alphabet's DeepMind — would replace programmers, ChatGPT and LaMDA both disagreed, per CNBC.
Google did not respond to Insider's request for comment about CNBC's report.
Since launching in late last year, ChatGPT has attracted significant attention for its abilities in recreating text based tasks like essays and emails. ChatGPT's responses have passed college level exams, secured job interviews, and even caused some schools to reconsider their approaches to homework.
ChatGPT's sophistication has seen other tech firms scramble to keep up. In December, Google issued an internal code red" response to OpenAI's tool, led by concerns that it could one day replace its search engine.
At a December all-hands meeting, CNBC reported, Google staff raised concerns that the company may be falling behind in the AI space.
At the same meeting, CEO Sundar Pichai failed to reassure staff about possible layoffs, Insider reported. Just over a month later, Google announced 12,000 staff would be laid off.
