The choice of phrasing in a user's input can significantly influence the model's response. Slight rephrasing may result in different answers, making it inconsistent in some cases. Also, this AI-powered language model tends to be verbose and overuse certain phrases. it may not always provide concise or efficient answers.

3. Lack of Contextual Awareness

It does not have a persistent memory of the conversation. It may not always maintain context across multiple turns in a conversation, making it sensitive to the conversation's order.


4. Inaccurate & Unreliable Information

The model might generate answers that sound plausible but are entirely made up. It can invent details or make guesses when it lacks accurate information.

5. Unable to Perform Multiple Tasks

It performs best when it’s given a specific task or a wide range of tasks. However, it's impossible to handle a multi-tiered query and provide inappropriate or irrelevant responses.

6. Difficulty in Producing Long-Form, Structured Content

When generating summaries of long-form structured content, it tends to provide brief summaries or explanations that may not always faithfully represent the source material.

7. Huge Computing Power & Costs 

Deploying and maintaining ChatGPT at scale can be resource-intensive, both in terms of computation and costs.
