5 jobs ChatGPT, the AI taking the internet by storm, could replace

By , ,

Artificial intelligence is used in everything from virtual assistants to creating works of art. The latest trend taking social media by storm is OpenAI’s ChatGPT, which can generate human-like text based on input from a user. The sophisticated chatbot can understand and respond to a wide range of topics. It’s so advanced some worry it could make humans unnecessary. We have the jobs that ChatGPT could replace in this week’s Five for Friday.

A number of commercial products already offer AI copywriting services, but ChatGPT might be the most comprehensive yet. It can take information provided to it and with some fine-tuning, generate scripting similar to the video attached to this article. In fact, ChatGPT helped write the script. This isn’t something Straight Arrow News plans to utilize, especially because it can be somewhat inaccurate unless provided a lot of data. It did work well in this situation since it knows quite a bit about its own capabilities.

It did take a lot of finessing to get exactly what we were looking for and we still had to add our own flare to the scripting. Below you will find a comparison of what ChatGPT generated after roughly 20 prompts compared to the script that we ultimately used.

#4: Computer Programmer/Engineer

Computer programmers and engineers are essential in the modern connected world. ChatGPT’s language model has the ability to use various programming languages, including Python, Java and C++. The tool could be used in developing software, writing algorithms and building complex systems. ChatGPT is a good alternative to sifting through message boards, scrubbing YouTube videos or hoping Google spits out the proper answer.

#3: Medical Professional

ChatGPT can take provided symptoms and come up with a medical diagnosis. The AI is quick to point out that real doctors are still needed and chatbots should not be relied on for medical advice. In fact, in most cases it will tell the user to consult a medical professional for a true diagnosis. It may not have any bedside manner, but it can’t be much worse than WebMD.

#2: Entertainment Writer

With all the rebooted content out there, it seems like many entertainment writers are just going through the motions these days. ChatGPT can generate unique and engaging content. In our tests for this piece, it suggested, “A comedy about a robot who becomes a stand-up comedian and has to navigate the world of humans and their strange humor.” It may not be the best idea, but with so many streaming services, someone might pick it up for one season.

#1: Teacher

ChatGPT can explain complex concepts in a way that is easy to understand. It could be helpful in a classroom setting to provide personalized instruction and explanations to students at different levels of understanding. This is in no way an endorsement of getting rid of teachers in favor of technology, but it’s still an interesting idea. What’s more: ChatGPT isn’t going to be able to keep a close eye on the young ones.

SIMONE DEL ROSARIO:

THE INTERNET IS ENTHRALLED WITH OPENAI’S CHATGPT WHICH CAN GENERATE HUMAN-LIKE TEXT AND UNDERSTAND AND RESPOND TO A WIDE RANGE OF TOPICS. IT’S SO ADVANCED IT MAKES HUMANS SEEM UNNECESSARY. WE’VE GOT THE JOBS THIS FANCY AI COULD REPLACE IN THIS WEEK’S FIVE FOR FRIDAY.

I’LL START WITH ME. CHATGPT HAS THE ABILITY TO TAKE INFORMATION PROVIDED TO IT AND, WITH SOME FINE-TUNING, GENERATE NEWS PACKAGES SIMILAR TO THIS ONE. IN FACT, CHATGPT HELPED WRITE THIS PIECE. WE JUST ADDED A LITTLE EXTRA FLAVOR. WE HAVE NO PLANS TO EVER DO THIS AGAIN, JUST WANTED TO SHOW OFF THE TECH. PLUS, IT’LL BE FOREVER BEFORE A ROBOT LOOKS LIKE ME….RIGHT?

CHATGPT COULD POTENTIALLY REPLACE PROGRAMMERS AND ENGINEERS. THIS LANGUAGE MODEL HAS THE ABILITY TO USE VARIOUS PROGRAMMING LANGUAGES, SUCH AS PYTHON, JAVA, AND C++. IT CAN BE USED IN DEVELOPING SOFTWARE, CREATING ALGORITHMS, AND BUILDING COMPLEX SYSTEMS. IT’S LIKE GOOGLE, EXCEPT IT ACTUALLY KNOWS WHAT YOU ARE ASKING.

THIS LANGUAGE MODEL HAS THE ABILITY TO TAKE SYMPTOMS AND PROVIDE A DIAGNOSIS, THOUGH IT’S IMPORTANT TO NOTE THAT REAL DOCTORS ARE STILL NECESSARY AND CHATGPT SHOULD NOT BE RELIED UPON FOR MEDICAL ADVICE. LET’S BE HONEST, THOUGH, IT CAN’T BE ANY WORSE THAN WEBMD. BUT CHATGPT WANTS YOU TO KNOW IT DOESN’T COME WITH BEDSIDE MANNER.

SOME ENTERTAINMENT WRITERS ARE JUST GOING THROUGH THE MOTIONS THESE DAYS. CHATGPT HAS THE ABILITY TO GENERATE UNIQUE AND ENGAGING CONTENT. FOR EXAMPLE, IT MIGHT SUGGEST A COMEDY ABOUT A ROBOT WHO BECOMES A STAND-UP COMEDIAN AND HAS TO NAVIGATE THE WORLD OF HUMANS AND THEIR STRANGE HUMOR. OK. MAYBE THEY AREN’T ALL WINNERS, BUT AT LEAST IT’S NEVER BEEN ACCUSED OF STEALING JOKES.

CHATGPT HAS THE ABILITY TO EXPLAIN COMPLEX CONCEPTS IN A WAY THAT IS EASY TO UNDERSTAND. THIS COULD BE HELPFUL IN A CLASSROOM SETTING, WHERE IT COULD PROVIDE PERSONALIZED INSTRUCTION AND EXPLANATIONS TO STUDENTS AT DIFFERENT LEVELS OF UNDERSTANDING, BUT IT’S NOT GONNA BABYSIT THOSE KIDS.

NOW, BEFORE ANYONE GETS TOO WORRIED, WE’RE NOT SAYING THAT CHATGPT IS GOING TO TAKE OVER THE WORLD OR ANYTHING LIKE THAT. THIS IS JUST A FUN, HYPOTHETICAL EXERCISE. THAT’S WHAT THE BOT WROTE FOR ME TO SAY, AT LEAST. THAT’S FIVE FOR FRIDAY. I’M SIMONE DEL ROSARIO. IT’S JUST BUSINESS.
