100 years back. Machines are taking over the world!
50 years back. Specialized machines called robots are taking over the world!
5 years back. Even more specialized machines by the name of AI – Artificial Intelligence are taking over the world!
Now. 2023. There’s a new type of AI – called ChatGPT is in the market.
And I am sure at least some of you have heard of it. Can you please show hands if you’ve heard about ChatGPT?
What is it even?
Lets break it down. Chat – well as it implies it can chat, with you. Human. In a humanely way.
And GPT – stay with me – Generative Pre-trained Transformer.
It can generate human-like text.
The model has been trained on a vast amount of text data, allowing it to understand and respond to a wide range of topics and prompts.
Think about Wikipedia. Books. Blogs. Not just one – all books, all blogs, all Wikipedia entries available on the internet. It has it all.
It perform natural language processing tasks such as language translation, text summarization, and text-to-speech.
Or to cut the buzzwords, it is a superhuman like software which can understand and respond to any topic or prompt thrown your way.
Let me tell how I used it.
- Canary visa travel plan
- What gift do I bring to white elephant?
- Draft an email to schedule my vision test appointment
As Toastmasters, let’s embrace the power of AI and use it to improve our communication skills and take our speeches to the next level. With ChatGPT by our side, the sky’s the limit!
