💎 Why It Matters

Theory of Constraints at its finest.

💡 Solution

ChatGPT helps you automate work and save time coding, writing, researching and more.

🏁 Players

ChatGPT Tools

🔮 Predictions

  • ChatGPT will transform customer support. It will learn from docs, previous conversations and best practices to help you provide help faster.
  • Tech giants will add ChatGPT-enabled features to their products to remain competitive.

☁️ Opportunities

🏔️ Risks

  • Bias • Human bias is transferring to AI. ChatGPT can produce hateful, racist or sexist comments.
  • Disinformation • ChatGPT can deepen the disinformation crisis. It can fake sources and give plausible, but incorrect or nonsensical answers. Elephants do not lay eggs.
  • Misuse • ChatGPT is not meant to give advice and you shouldn’t rely on it for anything important. Do not ask it for help with mental health.

🔑 Key Lessons

  • ChatGPT learns from us. It didn’t know what “updog” was until now.
  • We underestimate the power of AI. Jack Clark says today’s AI models are far more capable than we think.
  • The output quality depends on the input quality. Direct prompts and follow-up questions lead to better results.

🔥 Hot Takes

😠 Haters

“ChatGPT’s responses are generic. They lack depth and insight.”
ChatGPT is not the ultimate source of truth. Some say it can write your papers. Others say it does not understand math. Treat it like a toy, not a tool. At least for now.

“ChatGPT won’t replace Google Search.”
Google may disrupt itself first.

“ChatGPT promotes laziness.”
Our energy is finite. We take the path of least resistance. Tools like ChatGPT make it easier to conserve energy. This is not its fault. It’s biology.

“We can detect AI-generated text.”
There are ways to make it harder. This is unedited, AI-generated text. Writer says that 5 out of 9 passages are human-written. GPTZero says that it’s likely a human-written text.
