In this article, we explore the remarkable productivity benefits offered by ChatGPT. This revolutionary tool has transformed coding processes, enabling users to complete tasks in a fraction of the time. Discover how ChatGPT’s efficiency and time-saving capabilities are reshaping the way we work and unlocking new levels of productivity.
I recently had a conversation with a friend who is currently busy transitioning radio stations into cloud computing operations. He was raving about the wonders of ChatGPT, telling me that the amount of time this app saves him equates to seven and a half hours out of every eight. He uses ChatGPT to write code, a process that would normally take him four highly frustrating hours but now takes around ninety seconds.
When was the last time in history that a complex action was first completed hundreds of times faster than human endeavor could manage?
1941, to be precise, when Alan Turing invented The Bombe, a machine that broke the communications code used by German submarines for attack signals in the North Sea. Aside from the fact that this invention almost certainly saved the lives of around 14 million people by shortening the Second World War by two years, it also accelerated human technological progress by heralding the arrival of what became known as the computer, or what some late adopters called “thinking machines.”
The ChatGPT productivity benefits, and all the language bots that follow, represent another such giant leap forward. The leap in productivity that my friend is now experiencing will create prosperity at a pace unimaginable before this tool arrived.
So, lest you think some of our articles in this edition are mounting a rampage against this technology, you’re mistaken. We simply believe that a cautionary tale or two is needed concerning not the technology, but the human behavior of cheating, which seems to be increasingly baked into our personalities as we try to cope with increasingly unrealistic expectations, both at school and at work.
Ironically, ChatGPT has arrived like a knight in shining armor for people who need to cheat from time to time. That means pretty much all of us.
For some time now, probably since the first Terminator movie was released, we’ve been frightened of the day when machines would become self-aware. Perhaps we’ve got it wrong. Maybe we should be more alarmed about just how unaware we’ve become.
But perhaps that’s more of a comment about social media.
