The need for upskilling.
AI has made tremendous progress in various fields recently, including education, the arts, and coding. From automating repetitive tasks to generating creative work, AI is being used increasingly to streamline processes and boost productivity.
The following blog post will explore how the AI language model Assistant, developed by OpenAI also known as ChatGPT, may have disrupted certain fields. We’ll look at specific examples of how ChatGPT is being used in these fields and discuss its potential to revolutionize the way we work and create.
Whether you’re a developer, an artist, or just interested in the intersection of AI and these fields, this blog post will give you a unique look at how AI, specifically ChatGPT, is changing the landscape.
Right! Let’s take a closer look at the fields that have been or could potentially be disrupted by ChatGPT or similar AI assistants.
Education in a post-ChatGPT world
As per the tweet below: “we are witnessing the death of the college/school essay in realtime… ”. This could signify the eventual demise of the educational system as we know it, rooted in the industrial revolution.
Although ChatGPT isn’t the first AI tool to try and automate essay writing, it looks like it is the first one to produce “Solid A- work in 10 seconds“.
General Learning in a post-GPT world
The trend towards AI assistance is not limited to formal educational settings, this can also be applied to any type of assignment or learning setting. As Sam Altman stated: “…soon you will be able to have helpful assistants that talk to you, answer questions, and give advice. Later you can have something that goes off and does tasks for you. Eventually, you can have something that goes off and discovers new knowledge for you.” The potential for AI to revolutionize the way we learn and acquire new knowledge is thus vast.
Coding in a post-GPT world
For some, ChatGPT seems like a game-changer, as they are saying “goodbye” to scouring through outdated Stack Overflow threads, because ChatGPT is here to revolutionize the way you solve coding
Build an app in a post-GPT world
Packy McCormick, the author of the popular tech and business strategy newsletter “Not Boring” also on podcast, asked ChatGPT: “Can you help be build an app that takes links to essays and produces 10 bullet summaries using GPT-3?”. What follows is
Music/art in a post-GPT world
There is currently a lot of debate surrounding the impact of ChatGPT on creative fields. If you have come across any relevant tweets or posts showing how ChatGPT is disrupting these fields and professions, please share them. It would be interesting to see how ChatGPT is making its mark in the creative world.
As we wait, let’s revel in the delight of Mozart’s latest tune.
Recruiting in a post-GPT world
The use of AI can streamline the hiring process, making it more efficient and effective.
Nikos Moraitakis, the CEO of Workable, has praised ChatGPT for its skill in crafting an assignment tailored for aspiring Product Managers and Growth candidates.
Content creation jobs in a post-ChatGPT world
What does this development mean for content creators? It signifies the automation of producing written and visual content, freeing up time and resources for creators to focus on more complex tasks.
What do content creators have to say about ChatGPT?
This means that if ChatGPT truly succeeds in automating the production of written and visual content, creators will be enabled to focus on higher-level tasks such as strategy, ideation, and creative direction.
While AI and ChatGPT can potentially assist with tasks such as idea generation, research, and content creation, it does not replace the need for human creativity and expertise.
Any role/job in a post-ChatGPT word
Yes, highly skilled analysts and academics had predicted how AI will disrupt our world a long time ago. These predictions came from thinking about how their specific jobs and tasks could be automated to help them become more efficient and effective.
a) The Rise of the Robot Overloads: How smart machines will soon take over our jobs
In his article “Welcome, Robot Overloads. Please Don’t Fire Us?”, Kevin Drum shared his thoughts on why “smart machines probably won’t kill us all–but they’ll definitely take our jobs, and sooner than you think” for Mother Jones back in May 2013. For those who prefer a visual summary, here is a picture that captures his main points.
b) The Potential and Limits of AI: A wait but why discussion
Not too long ago, in his article “Wait but Why”, Tim Urban discussed the potential for AI to revolutionize many industries and fundamentally change society. Tim suggests that as AI becomes more advanced, it will eventually surpass human intelligence and have a significant impact on the job market and the way society functions.
We are not quite there yet, but in the following blog posts we’ll share the limits of AI, and ChatGPT specifically, where human intelligence is required to continue an inquiry or prompt. Stay tuned.
c) Nick Bostrom: The philosopher who blew our minds with his ideas on superintelligence and the technological singularity
Finally, let’s pay a tribute to Nick Bostrom, the philosopher from Oxford and “father” of modern thought, whose brilliant mind brought us such important and enduring concepts as superintelligence, AGI, and the various stages of AI maturity. Bostrom’s work has helped us to understand and anticipate the technological singularity that lies ahead. Note to all educators or anyone who designs curricula or education policy: You should be familiar with Nick Bostrom’s “Superintelligence”.
One particularly engaging exercise for students might be to have them reflect on Bostrom’s Simulation Argument, which posits the possibility that we are living in a simulated reality. This thought-provoking idea first put forth by Bostrom in 2001, invites us to consider the human psyche and how we might react to the possibility of living in a matrix. Whether we agree with Bostrom’s argument or not, exploring this idea can be both intellectually stimulating and educational.
The Curious Case of the Future: What does it hold for us?
Over the past few weeks, there’s been a lot of online chatter about the potential uses and limitations of ChatGPT, and by extension similar tools, and it’s worth paying attention to. The questions on our minds: how can we harness the power of automation to make our lives easier and more efficient? And how can we train ourselves to use these tools effectively?
These advancements raise important questions about the future of work and the need for upskilling in the face of AI disruption. Whether you are a developer, an artist, or simply interested in the intersection of AI and these fields, ChatGPT is worth exploring and considering for your own work and learning.
