In today’s digital era, AI (Artificial Intelligence) technology has become impossible to ignore, popping up everywhere from news headlines to your social media feeds. This week let’s delve into the hype around AI and explore how you can leverage this advanced technology to simplify your life and the lives of your family members.
Artificial Intelligence language models such as ChatGPT and Jasper are particularly gaining popularity this year. Essentially, these are web-based software tools capable of understanding and interpreting human language, providing responses that closely mimic human conversation. Simply put, these tools enable you to interact with them as you would with a real person, and they respond in a strikingly human-like manner.
The buzz surrounding these tools stems from their ability to comprehend and respond to the inputs you provide in a manner akin to human understanding, even adjusting their responses based on your subsequent queries or commands.
If the idea of using AI technology in your daily life seems a bit too “futuristic,” rest assured, there are many practical applications of AI language models that can facilitate your family’s daily routine. These models can save you time, aid communication, and even assist you in planning that much-anticipated holiday.
Let’s look at four practical ways you can start incorporating AI into your daily life today.
1. Utilize AI for Drafting Difficult Emails
All of us encounter moments in life when we’re required to convey an uncomfortable message, be it through email, text, or phone. Whether you’re submitting your resignation, critiquing someone’s work, or conveying bad news, formulating the right words to clearly communicate your intent without striking the wrong chord can be a stressful task.
In such scenarios, instead of agonizing over an empty email draft or hesitating to dial a number, consider seeking assistance from an AI language model like ChatGPT or Jasper.
For instance, let’s say you need to address an employee’s performance issue. You might input something like this into ChatGPT: “Craft a sensitive yet constructive email addressing an employee who is diligent and amiable, but frequently makes spelling errors in the company’s meeting minutes. You need to communicate the value you see in them while highlighting their need to improve accuracy.”
Here’s a sample response generated by ChatGPT:
“Dear [Employee Name],
I trust this email finds you well. I’d like to offer some feedback concerning the meeting minutes that you’ve been overseeing. Firstly, I want to sincerely acknowledge your tireless dedication and valuable contributions to our team.
However, I’ve observed that there are quite a few spelling mistakes in recent meeting minutes. While it’s understandable that errors occur, it’s crucial that the minutes accurately reflect the decisions and actions taken in our meetings. I’m bringing this to your attention so we can work together on enhancing the precision of our records.
One suggestion would be to allocate some additional time for reviewing your work before submission, ensuring it’s free of mistakes. You could also utilize spell-check or grammar-check tools to help identify any slips.
We have complete faith in your capability to refine this aspect of your work and we stand ready to provide any support you may need. Feel free to approach me if you have any queries or concerns.
Thank you once again for your unwavering commitment to our team.”
The AI doesn’t merely construct an articulate email, but also offers potential solutions for the issue at hand. Furthermore, you can request the AI to fine-tune its output, asking for a more empathetic or casual tone or a more concise message.
No more hours wasted crafting the perfect email for tricky situations!
Even when your mode of communication is a phone call, an AI language model can be instrumental in setting the right tone for the conversation by offering you a blueprint of how to kick-start the dialogue and the key points you should address.
2. Find the Best Flight Prices Faster
Planning a family vacation often means diving into the arduous task of hunting for flight deals. What appears straightforward initially can swiftly escalate into an exhaustive pursuit of comparing airlines, fares, layovers, seasons, and even how flight timings differ between departure cities.
However, the integration of ChatGPT with KAYAK now streamlines this process, assisting you in sifting through various travel options. For instance, you could ask, “What’s the cheapest flight from Fargo to Orlando?” and the software will promptly present you with the most suitable options based on your query.
Looking for a non-stop flight? Modify your query to, “Show me only direct flights,” to refine your search results. The tool is designed to understand direct and straightforward requests, so you don’t need to worry about phrasing your questions politely.
If you’re interested in comparing prices based on specific days of the week, ask the software something like, “What is the cheapest day to fly to Orlando from Fargo in June?”
At present, the KAYAK integration is exclusively available for paid subscribers of ChatGPT, but plans are in motion to include it in the free version of the software. If you’re eager to travel and keen on utilizing the KAYAK integration feature of ChatGPT, paid subscriptions are available with billing tied to your usage. Plus, you’ll receive a complimentary five-dollar credit to get you started.
3. Enhance Your Resume and Cover Letter
Regardless of whether you’re on an active job hunt or contemplating ways to boost your resume for a potential promotion, a well-crafted resume can tip the scales between landing an interview and being overlooked. However, drafting a resume or cover letter that aptly showcases your worth without sounding overly self-congratulatory can be challenging. This is where an AI language model like ChatGPT comes in handy, aiding in enriching your resume and constructing a cover letter that leaves a lasting impression on hiring managers.
Let’s assume you’re a medical clinic receptionist aspiring for a similar role in another clinic. While you have a resume, you’re not entirely confident that it accentuates your skills appropriately. Here’s how you can harness ChatGPT to refine your resume. For instance, take the following skills from your current resume:
- Answer patient phone calls and respond to messages
- Schedule appointments based on the provider’s availability
- Assist team members with queries
- Follow-up with patients to reschedule canceled appointments
You can input these into ChatGPT with a directive to enhance the job description for your resume. The AI tool might generate improved bullet points as follows:
- Communicate efficiently with patients over the phone, email, and messages, offering accurate and helpful information in a friendly and professional manner.
- Manage appointment scheduling considering healthcare providers’ availability, while prioritizing patient needs.
- Foster team collaboration by providing guidance and resolving queries as required.
- Ensure continuity of patient care by proactively following up and rescheduling canceled appointments.
ChatGPT’s output presents your receptionist responsibilities more compellingly and descriptively, accentuating your skills and highlighting your focus on patient care and teamwork.
With an AI language model, you can either create your resume and cover letter from scratch or gain insights on enhancing an existing resume. It also enables you to customize the same cover letter for different organizations, saving you invaluable time during your job search.
4. Get Help with Your Kids Homework
As a parent, you’re likely familiar with the challenges that come with helping your children with their homework. This can sometimes seem as difficult for you as it is for them. The silver lining, however, is that there’s an AI language model that can simplify homework problems, making it easier for both you and your child to comprehend.
What you need to do is input the math problem into the AI software and request an explanation. For instance, let’s say you input the following question into ChatGPT:
“Could you explain this math problem in a way a 4th grader could understand: 1/2 X 2/3 =”
The response from ChatGPT was:
“Sure! We’re trying to figure out the result when we multiply these two fractions. To accomplish this, we first multiply the numerators (the top numbers), and then the denominators (the bottom numbers).
So, 1/2 X 2/3 can be broken down as follows:
We start by multiplying the numerators, which are the numbers at the top: 1 X 2 = 2.
Then we multiply the denominators, the numbers at the bottom: 2 X 3 = 6.
So, the resulting fraction is 2/6!
But we can simplify this fraction by dividing both the numerator and the denominator by their greatest common factor, which is
- When we divide 2/6 by 2, we get 1/3. Therefore, the final answer is 1/3!
This implies that if we had a whole item, divided it into two equal parts, shaded one of those parts, then further divided that one part into three equal sections, and shaded two of those sections, we would be left with 1/3 of the whole item.”
Impressive, isn’t it? Although this was a relatively simple problem, you can also pose more complex math questions or inquiries about other subjects.
This tool not only assists you and your child in better comprehending their homework, but it can also alleviate any frustrations associated with daily homework tasks.
