ChatGPT: 5 ways you too can use this AI

As we come face to face with unprecedented technological advancement, people may be intimidated by AI because of the perception that it is more advanced and intelligent than humans, and therefore poses a threat to jobs and even humanity. Additionally, the idea of machines that can think and make decisions on their own can be unsettling to some people. There is also a fear that AI could be programmed to act in ways that are harmful or unethical. Adding fuel to existing hesitation, media coverage of AI contributes to this perception by emphasizing the negative potentials of the technology.

Today I want to talk about one such AI program called ChatGPT. The amount of attention it has received has been astounding and therefore, I would be surprised if you have not yet heard of it. ChatGPT is a large language model developed by OpenAI. It is based on the transformer architecture and pre-trained on a massive dataset of internet text. It has the ability to generate human-like text in a variety of styles and on a wide range of topics. It’s also a machine learning model designed to generate human-like text based on the input provided to it. It can be used for a variety of applications such as chatbots, automated writing and text completion.

While being intimidated by new technology is understandable, through this article today, I want to encourage you to try out ChatGPT for yourself. To get you started, here are five SUPER COOL ways you too can take advantage of this program in your everyday life.

Using ChatGPT if you are a Content Creator 

  1. Content generation: ChatGPT can be used to generate new and unique content on a given topic, which can be a great time saver for content creators. For example, using the prompts that I provided, 80% of this entire article is generated by ChatGPT.
  2. Text completion: ChatGPT can complete partially written sentences or paragraphs, which can help content creators finish their work more quickly.
  3. Text Summarization: ChatGPT can be fine-tuned to summarize text which can be helpful for creating summaries of articles, books, and other long-form content.
  4. Text Translation: ChatGPT can be fine-tuned to translate text from one language to another, which can help content creators to reach a wider audience.
  5. Creativity boost: ChatGPT can also be used as a tool to generate new ideas and perspectives, which can help content creators to come up with new and unique content.

Using ChatGPT if you are a Researcher

  1. Data analysis: ChatGPT can be fine-tuned to analyze large amounts of text data, such as scientific literature, news articles, and social media posts. This can help researchers to quickly identify patterns and trends in the data. 
  2. Language model-based writing assistance: ChatGPT can assist researchers in the writing process by providing suggestions for grammar, style, and vocabulary.
  3. Literature Review: The AI model can look through the internet to provide you with a leading list of articles to guide your literature review, which is a lengthy and often tiresome process. For example, try the following prompt: “Give me a list of articles on Criminal Justice Reform in developing countries and also quote author names as well as year of publication”. 
    • However, be mindful that there is a possibility that the model might provide incorrect results and that a researcher would need to verify them and should abstain from simply “copy-pasting” the results. In addition to that amounting to academic dishonesty, it can lead to several inconsistencies within the write-up. 

Using ChatGPT if you are a Student

  1. Writing assistance: ChatGPT can assist students in the writing process by providing suggestions for grammar, style, and vocabulary, which can help students to improve their writing skills.
  2. Language Translation: ChatGPT can be fine-tuned to translate text from one language to another, which can help students to understand texts in foreign languages and to study foreign cultures.
  3. Tutoring assistance: ChatGPT can be used to provide students with interactive, personalized and on-demand tutoring in various subjects, such as math, science, and history.
  4. Homework assistance: ChatGPT can be used to help students with their homework by answering questions, providing explanations, and solving problems.
  5. Knowledge base: ChatGPT can be fine-tuned to provide information, answer questions and generate explanations on a wide range of topics, which can be useful for students that want to deepen their understanding in a specific field.

Using ChatGPT in your Social Life

  1. Personal Assistant: ChatGPT can be used as a personal assistant to help people with tasks such as scheduling, reminders, and making reservations. You can also give it a prompt stating everything you would like to do within a day for instance gym, reading, research, socializing, TV, cooking; mention the time frame for each task as well as the frequency of it within a week to be extremely precise, and then ask ChatGPT to create a weekly schedule for you, and it will do so promptly. You can then make changes to it and get a head start on your New Year’s resolutions.
  2. Social Media Assistance: ChatGPT can be fine-tuned to generate text for social media posts, captions, and comments, which can help people to create engaging content quickly.
  3. Virtual companion: ChatGPT can be used as a virtual companion to chat with and to provide personalized suggestions, recommendations, and entertainment.
  4. Social Communication: You can use ChatGPT to draft your emails and text messages which can even include customized poems and birthday wishes. For instance, I tried the following prompt and the results were not disappointing at all: 
    • Me: Draft an email to my boss by making up a hilarious reason as to why I cannot attend office on Thursday. Make the email sound like it was written in the 1800s. Make it sound funny. 
    • ChatGPT:

Subject: My Abject Apologies for Thursday’s Absence

Dearest Boss,

I do hope this missive finds you in the pink of health and high spirits. It is with the utmost trepidation and regret that I must inform you of my inability to attend the office on Thursday next.

You see, it appears that I have been stricken with an affliction of the most unusual and comical nature. It seems that my left foot has taken it upon itself to become a rogue appendage, and has decided to sprout a rather impressive set of antlers.

I have been assured by the finest quacks in the land that this is a temporary malady and that with a bit of rest and a potion or two, I shall be back to my old self in no time. However, I fear that the office may not be quite ready for the sight of a man with a hoofed foot, and so I must humbly request a day or two of convalescence.

Please know that I shall be thinking of you all and the office whilst I am away, and I do hope to return soon, antlers and all.

Yours in great humility and mirth,

[Your Name]

P.S. I do hope you will excuse the puns, but I couldn’t help myself!

Using ChatGPT for Entertainment

  1. Personalized suggestions, recommendations, and entertainment: You can use ChatGPT to ask personalized suggestions, recommendations and entertainment, which can help you to socialize with others and to find common interests. You can basically give it a name of your favorite show or book and ask it to find other similar to it in genre, storyline, plot, subplot, etc.,
  2. Trivia games: ChatGPT can be fine-tuned to generate trivia questions and answers in different categories, such as history, science, or pop culture. You can use the model to create your own trivia games and to challenge your friends and family.
  3. Storytelling: ChatGPT can be fine-tuned to generate stories in different genres, such as mystery, horror, or romance. You can use the model to generate your own stories or to complete unfinished stories.
  4. Music Lyrics: ChatGPT can be fine-tuned to generate song lyrics, you can fine-tune it to match specific style and use it to generate your own song lyrics.
  5. Poetry: ChatGPT can be fine-tuned to generate poetry in different styles and forms, such as sonnets, haikus, or free verse. You can use the model to generate your own poems or to complete unfinished poems.
  6. Chatbot: You can use ChatGPT to create a chatbot that can have a conversation with you and generate responses based on the context of the conversation. You can fine-tune the model to make the chatbot more entertaining by giving it a specific personality or sense of humor.

ChatGPT offers unparalleled efficiency and customization, allowing users to quickly generate high-quality text for a wide range of applications. With its ability to generate human-like text, ChatGPT provides a valuable tool for businesses and individuals looking to improve their communication and engagement with customers and audiences. ChatGPT’s cost-effectiveness and versatility make it a valuable asset for researchers, educators, and students, providing support for language understanding, data analysis, and natural language processing.

It’s important to note that as with any technology, ChatGPT is not perfect and might generate text that is not always accurate or appropriate. It’s important to use the model responsibly and to always fact-check any information generated by the model.
