In recent months artificial intelligence use has exploded
We follow quite a few technology substacks and began hearing whispers about ChatGTP mid-last year. It seemed like a novelty at first and then more and more of my less tech-saavy friends started asking me about it. “Hey what is this ChatGTP? Are my kids going to start having their papers written by AI?”. It seemingly wound its way into every conversation I’ve been having.
What is ChatGTP?
ChatGTP is a user accessible interface that allows you to interact with OpenAI’s natural language artificial intelligence platform. You can ask it simple questions, for example, “what is the top rated restaurant in my area?” It will respond with the top 10, and you can ask for a short summary on each, as well as contact information to make reservations. In its current iteration there is no ability for the platform to connect to take actions on external platforms. For example, it cannot contact a restaurant for you to make reservations, but its coming. While these uses may seem more like a novelty, where ChatGTP shines is in generating content. It can write articles that are optimized for SEO with little more than a sentence prompt.
