Instagram now has a “quiet” mode

Instagram has announced several new features, including a “quiet” mode.

This feature is available to everyone in the US, UK, Ireland, Canada, Australia and New Zealand. So it’ll be a while before it arrives here!


All about ChatGPT

Everyone is talking about it… ChatGPT, the text generator of OpenAI based on GPT-3.5. Concretely, it allows to formulate requests and to obtain contents corresponding to certain requests. It works in several languages, including French.

In order to be able to use it correctly, here are some elements to know:

The 5 main uses

  • Answering questions
  • Classifying or extracting data
  • Generating code
  • Transforming content
  • Generate messages, letters, emails…

The 5 limitations

  • Age of the data: the database has not been updated since 2021.
  • Data comes from the internet, so it is not perfect and may contain errors.
  • ChatGPT covers a variety of topics, but its knowledge of each specific topic is limited.
  • It generates content based on other existing content, so it is not original.
  • It sometimes generates grammatically correct answers, but devoid of meaning, so “human” proofreading is recommended.


  • Prompt: question you wish to ask ChatGPT; remember to incorporate context to get relevant answers.
  • Temperature: to get predictable answers, use a low value; conversely, a high value will give more creative answers.
  • Max_length: you can use this setting to define the length of responses; useful for adjusting the level of detail in the results.
  • Top_p: to control the proportion of most likely answers; the higher this is, the more likely the results will be.
  • Top_k: to control the number of responses considered by ChatGPT; the higher this is, the more varied the responses will be.
