UPDATE: ChatGPT is functioning again. However, chat history cannot be accessed at this time.
MIAMI, Florida – Students in Florida and across the U.S. will have to write their own essays and term papers without the assistance of ChatGPT today. That’s because the ChatGPT is down today and has been down since before noon Eastern Time, according to DownDetector.com.
Although the website is working, both the free ChatGPT and premium ChatGPT 4 artificial intelligence chatbots are not working.
When users go to the website https://chat.openai.com/chat, they see the following error message pop-ups: “ChatGPT is temporarily unavailable. Please check here for updates: https://status.openai.com/incidents/jq9232rcmktd” and “We’re experiencing exceptionally high demand. Please hang tight as we work on scaling our systems.”
