In today’s fast-paced world, achieving success often hinges on our ability to work smarter, not harder. That’s where AI technology, and specifically AI interns, can play a pivotal role in streamlining our workflows and boosting productivity. Welcome to the era of the AI intern, where tools like ChatGPT are transforming the way we approach work and creative tasks.
In this blog post, we will explore how ChatGPT, a powerful AI intern, can enhance your work processes and drive success by fostering smarter workflows. Discover how ChatGPT can help you level up your productivity game!
ChatGPT: What do you need to know?
ChatGPT is a friendly AI language model developed by OpenAI. It’s based on the groundbreaking GPT technology that’s designed to understand and generate human-like text. What’s fascinating about ChatGPT is that it can assist you with a wide range of tasks, from drafting emails and writing content, to brainstorming ideas and answering questions.
In other words, it’s like having a super-smart AI intern right at your fingertips!
One of the most significant benefits of using ChatGPT as your AI intern is the potential to create smarter workflows. When you have a reliable AI assistant, you can save time and energy by delegating repetitive or mundane tasks, such as proofreading or research, to your virtual intern. This means you’ll have more time to focus on the things that truly matter, like coming up with innovative ideas or engaging with your audience.
Another fantastic feature of ChatGPT is its ability to generate creative content. Whether you’re struggling with writer’s block or simply in need of some fresh ideas, ChatGPT can be your go-to source for inspiration. By providing you with unique perspectives and suggestions, this AI intern can help you overcome creative hurdles and keep your work exciting and engaging.
Moreover, ChatGPT can aid in optimizing your content for search engines (SEO) and even help manage your social media presence. In short, it’s like having an all-in-one AI intern that’s always ready to help you achieve your goals.
So, why not give ChatGPT a try and see how it can elevate your productivity? With this AI intern by your side, you’ll not only be able to work smarter, but also have more time to enjoy the things you love.
I’m all about finding new ways to make life easier, and ChatGPT is undoubtedly one of those solutions worth exploring. Happy experimenting!
How does ChatGPT help me with work?
When I discovered my ADHD diagnosis, I realized that I was struggling with being productive. It’s not because I’m lazy, but my executive functionalities are messed up. My brain doesn’t work the way how a neurotypical brain works.
I struggle working when I don’t find the work mentally stimulating. I need to get some dopamine to get in the right mood to feel productive enough to start doing my tasks. So, there’s an internal struggle when I get distracted by something and hyperfocus on that. Hyperfocus is a term common to ADHDers. It is a state wherein we only do that particular activity for hours without noticing the time (aka time blindness).
Okay, going back.
ChatGPT helps me whenever I need to be productive, and it serves as my AI intern most of the time. It helps me overcome my internal struggles of losing creativity or the momentum. Honestly, it’s quite hard to pick up the pace when you got your workflow right, and someone interrupts that flow. As a writer, I’ve experienced that quite a few times, and I end up lurking on Pinterest or watching series.
With my current work, ChatGPT serves as my AI intern by being my brainstorming buddy. I throw ideas at it, converse with it, and poof! Suddenly, my brain found the spark and I continued working on what I had been doing before I got distracted.
There are times that I encounter creative blocks which hinder me from creating content or strategies at work. Aside from reading or taking a break, I engage in a conversation with ChatGPT to help me encounter new ideas that would be helpful for work. Aside from that, it also helps me with finding reviews or summarizing TV series or movies that I’m interested in. It also helps me when I encounter challenges with formulas in Microsoft Excel or Google Sheets.
Is there a downside to ChatGPT?
Yes, there are still consequences of using ChatGPT. I encountered some false information back when I was doing research about a TV series that I was watching. It gave me some wrong information about an episode of Criminal Minds. Since I like fact checking and researching, I took it to myself to research without the help of my AI intern.
Subsequently, I always ensure that I double-check the information that my intern gives me before I use it for whatever creative project I’m working on. When you work with content, it’s significant that you always ensure that the information you’re sharing is based on facts. It’s enough that we’ve seen too much misinformation spread in the world. I definitely know, it’s up to us to check too.
Another consequence of this AI intern, there’s a knowledge cut-off, so it’s not your trusty all-around encyclopedia or search engine. I admit that it’s helpful to have someone to converse with or brainstorm with, but it doesn’t know everything.
One more thing, the ChatGPT Plus subscription costs $20, which is hefty for some.
Honestly, you can train your trusty AI intern, ChatGPT, to learn stuff as you converse with it. So, why not give it a try?
What do I think or feel about ChatGPT?
On the top of my mind, the validity of information and speed of the output still needs improvement.
I understand that it’s still a continuous work in progress but, from what I’ve seen, it’s been helpful. Honestly, I’m a bit scared that people might get laid off work because of the emergence of AI. Not only that, but people who are in the content marketing field may lose their work too. There are several AI-powered writing tools that could produce content in a matter of seconds. Even though it’s quite helpful, there’s fear that lurks at the back of my mind. I hope that the tech giants or large corporations would learn to work with AI instead of replacing people – making them lose their jobs or source of income.
However, technology should help us, and not replace us. At least, not totally. There’s still a significant different between AI-generated content from the work that people created. I’ve seen the comparison through the Lensa app, and with the content that my intern created while I was brainstorming with it.
Another improvement that may be considered would be to integrate search engines to help it produce more data-driven content. This way, misinformation from ChatGPT will be curbed. If that happens, trolls may not be able to use the tool to spread malicious posts or things. From experience, there are already browser extensions that enable internet access for the tool. It enables ChatGPT to get information from the internet based on search results and use it to produce more precise and accurate information.
In the end, I find this tool really helpful and useful, especially if you work alone or don’t have someone to brainstorm with.
So, how about you? Will you take in an AI intern? 🤔
