Majority of Americans Have Heard of ChatGPT

However, few have tried it

About six-in-ten U.S. adults (58 percent) are familiar with ChatGPT, though relatively few have tried it themselves, according to a Pew Research Center survey conducted in March. Among those who have tried ChatGPT, a majority report it has been at least somewhat useful.

ChatGPT is an open-access online chatbot that allows users to ask questions and request content. The versatility and human-like quality of its responses have captured the attention of the media, the tech industry and some members of the public. ChatGPT surpassed 100 million monthly users within two months of its public launch in late November 2022, setting a world record as the fastest-growing web application. Due to these factors, the Center chose to ask Americans about ChatGPT specifically rather than chatbots or large language models (LLMs) more broadly.

Overall, 18 percent of U.S. adults have heard a lot about ChatGPT, while 39 percent have heard a little and 42 percent have heard nothing at all. But there are considerable demographic differences in awareness of this chatbot.
