As a self-confessed tech nerd and L&D strategist, I love exploring new tools and technology.
If you follow my work (and thank you if you do), you might know that I have a little bit of a crush on ChatGPT from OpenAI. I’ve been exploring, sometimes falling, my way through this generative AI tool.
I still can’t quite get used to conversations about LLM’s (large language models), but hey, I’m trying!
For my fellow L&D pros, I want to share 3 use cases which I believe you might find useful in your own work.
1/ The Thought Partner
I’m not as fussed with content creation with generative AI as most.
As someone who writes a lot, I enjoy the process of writing as a tool to clarify my thinking. I have a rather overactive mind. One I don’t think even generative AI could make sense of.
Instead, I look for ways ChatGPT can support me in my thinking process.
As a solo freelancer, I do miss the opportunity to bounce ideas off others. If I can’t get a human connection, I find CGPT to be helpful.
Here’s how you can do that to 👇
2/ Analysing large data
If there’s one task I get excited about Gen AI supporting me with the most, it’s navigating data.
I’m not talking about summarising it only. Getting a different point of view and unearthing insights that I haven’t thought of is incredibly powerful.
See how I did it with data from my own ‘State of AI in L&D’ report and try it out for yourself. (Note: You need the pro version to use this feature).
3/ Summarising content
I love listening to podcasts, but I hate taking notes while consuming.
It’s distracting. I usually get lost in another train of thought that’s inspired by something I’ve consumed. To help with this, I’ve been using CGPT as a summarisation partner to do two things:
- Synthesise key insights from a piece of content
- Provide a different POV on the content
I find this useful as I get notes for my own future use and learn about things that I missed.
You can learn how to do this too 👇
Explore and experiment
The joy of learning is by doing, friend.
I’m not an expert on any of this. I’m just a fellow explorer trying to make sense of this all. Give these a try and let me know how you get on. I’d love to learn about your explorations in the generative AI world.
Speak to you later, human.
