New AI tool ChatGPT caused excitement and anxiety with his ability to instantly answer complex questions. In the days since its debut, people have discovered many ways it can make their lives easier, including five that we’ve picked above the rest.
ChatGPT is a conversation-based tool built by the OpenAI research lab that answers questions with some conversational dialogue. Its natural language abilities will delight anyone who needs to repeat questions to get answers from Siri or Alexa. An artificial intelligence trained on the vast tracts of text available on the Internet only knows information up to 2021. This has alarmed some educators, but as long as you use it carefully, it can be a bonus brain.
To be clear, ChatGPT isn’t a perfect substitute for doing your own research—it doesn’t separate fact from fiction like a CNET science editor. Jackson Ryan noted while detailing their current weaknesses in critical thinking. ChatGPT can answer questions and explain complex concepts, but its potential for inaccuracy has led StackOverflow to temporarily ban software created by ChatGPT.
However, there are several ways ChatGPT can make your life easier, developed by people looking for AI benefits. If you just want to save time on some assignments — and you’re not cheating on your English Lit paper — here are some great ways to use ChatGPT.
Get a chatbot to save your money
Within a few weeks, a GPT-powered bot can lower your account prices. Joshua Browder, CEO Payment — the “world’s first robot lawyer” to help people fight traffic tickets and other bills — he tweeted the company is building a Chrome extension based on ChatGPT’s technology foundation to negotiate lower fees with ISPs, hospitals and more.
The expansion will enter closed beta testing in mid-December, before an open beta in the first week of January. While DoNotPay has been dropping bills for years, its rules-based model could only pick fights where users could submit online complaint forms. By integrating the conversational technology behind ChatGPT, DoNotPay can negotiate back and forth with any service that chats for customer service, opening up a range of disputeable accounts to include medical bills, credit reports and landlord-tenant disputes.
“You can tell the bot, ‘Go give me a refund for Wi-Fi on a bad flight,’ and it will store and send your personal information. [the complaint]”Browder told CNET that he believes the more natural language of the requests will be less suspicious than the hard-form letters DoNotPay has sent before, allowing it to challenge smarter and more expensive institutions like hospitals.”
The GPT-powered extension will be free for part of the beta testing phase, then will be added to DoNotPay’s current billable subscription service, which costs $36 every three months.
Like Google’s Duplex AI that makes voice calls for you, the future could be bots that do all the tedious work to get you better deals and cheaper bills.
Make a diet and exercise plan
You need to change your diet and plan your exercise routine work. Alex Cohen, chief product officer at Carbon Health, used it to facilitate this ChatGPT to develop a plan that improves health with a daily calorie target, workout suggestions, a week’s worth of meals and even a shopping list for all the necessary ingredients. He tweeted his method in an illuminating thread:
Cohen broke down her plan into a series of steps, calculating her personal health metrics, asking for meals that fit her daily calorie and nutrient needs, a shopping list, and then an exercise plan to meet her needs.
ChatGPT can’t replace a doctor and nutritionist who can tailor a plan to your specific needs and physiology — if you repeat Cohen’s search terms, the tool will tell you. But it’s an easy way to create a health plan plan that you can check yourself or take to a health professional.
Create next week’s meals with grocery list
A variation on the last point is worth considering for anyone planning a week’s worth of meals for several people.
First, ask ChatGPT for a list of dishes, explain how many people you’re cooking for, and whether you’re interested in dinner, breakfast, or lunch. Include any preferences and dietary restrictions. Detail how many days you want meal ideas and poof, there’s a list of meals.
Then, ask for a shopping list for those foods. You’ll get a pretty basic list of ingredients, so if you want exact amounts, you’ll need to fine-tune your request. For example, you might want to ask for the total amount of ingredients for all the dishes listed. GPT makes a shopping list with the number of boxes, ounces, pounds, and cups of each ingredient you’ll need for a week’s worth of meals.
Create a bedtime story for kids
Prose created by ChatGPT has yet to hit the top of the bestseller list, especially since it lacks a knack for creative style. But the tool can create a valid dream story for children by inventing language from simple plots and basic instructions. For example, I chose a cat who wants to go to space, and ChatGPT gave me the tale of Max, who overcomes many obstacles to reach his dream among the stars.
Eric Zelikman, a Stanford graduate student in machine learning tweeted his idea using ChatGPT to create a bedtime story and then inputting that text into OpenAI’s DALL-E image generator for illustrations.
It will not replace traditionally published children’s books. But if you’re pressed for time, or you’re getting away from your child’s bedtime stories, creating a story using OpenAI tools can be helpful.
Prepare for the interview
If you need to prepare for an interview with an interesting source, you can ask ChatGPT to generate thought-provoking questions, like entrepreneur Seth Bannon. he tweeted.
It can come in handy if you’re a journalist or grilling someone on stage at an industry conference, preparing for a job interview, or having dinner with someone you want to impress.
You can even use it as a chat partner to set up mock conversations to practice what you’re about to say. You can also ask it to answer in other languages or translate specific phrases. You can also use it to refine your letters and emails to give them a bit of a professional polish. ChatGPT isn’t perfect, but when there are plenty of examples on the web to use, it can be a capable communicator.
