How to get the most out of OpenAI’s Chat GPT 

OpenAI and Chat GPT have taken the world by storm. Before we dive into how the game has changed, let’s start off by examining what is fundamentally different. Many people are familiar with the phrase “google it”, an act that involves entering a search term and telling Google to go find it. Google does this by crawling websites and indexing them so that your search can be compared to the index.

This is also a term that sort of defines the “surface web” and the converse would be the unindexed or spooky-sounding “dark web” which requires a special browser to traverse. This index acts like the Yellow Pages (if you are old enough to know that this article is for you and written by one of your kind) or a directory that allows you to quickly find sites that relate to what you want to learn more about.

This is the old way, and like duels to the Death and the Oregon Trail (both of them) and rotary telephones that connect to the wall, indexed search is moving into posterity of a similar kind. But why? Ask people using Chat GPT currently about it and they will probably offer something to the effect of “it gives me answers to my questions.”

To the uninitiated, this may evoke similarity, but the distinction may be missed. Google will point you toward results that may or may not contain information relevant to the terms or questions being asked so that you may review the information and piece it into a cogent answer to the question that had you searching Google in the first place. Chat GPT, on the distinct other hand, leverages a data set of raw information that is limited in time-based on the version you are using. Using complex algorithms Chat GPT can piece together a cogent answer to your cleverly crafted prompting.

There are limitations and sometimes even inaccuracies or fallacies inside of answers that are crafted so well one might be fooled into believing it is true, so keep that in mind. The prompt that the end user creates for the AI to act upon is where science becomes something closer to art. The better the prompt describes the full vision of the user’s desired outcome the better the answer the AI will provide. For example, you might ask, “How can I start a side business selling custom stationery?” Chat GPT would give you one result (give it a try copy and paste it into the prompt, go on, try it). You will see some variation of a list that is pulled from the collective knowledge available in the dataset leveraged by the version you are using.

For example, “Pretend you are an expert in the business of fine stationary, and an expert in launching a successful stationary product line, as well as a business formation expert, draft a business plan and custom stationary product line that could leverage outsourced manufacturing, and order processing to handle development, production, and distribution of that line.” If you are curious to see the result of this prompt you can scroll to the bottom of this article.

Now before you let the vision of yourself writing the next great novel series of angsty teen hobbit wizard vampires you should know that AI has prompted technology to detect the use of AI in creative endeavors so don’t go thinking you can just prompt copy and paste your way to glory. Have fun searching for information in a different way…while our AI overlords still allow it. 

Here is the result, which took mere seconds to produce as a thinking algorithm understood the request, searched for the information, and pieced it together in a coherent response that aligned with the prompt:
