Experimenting With ChatGPT

I’m beginning to experiment with ChatGPT and I’m finding it very interesting. Unlike other people, I’m not interested in using it to write articles that I just copy, paste, and publish but instead I’m interested in using it to help me better see and articulate the things I already know, especially when it comes to trying to explain the relationship between the different things I’m researching and how they integrate into a bigger picture.

So for example if it spits out three or four paragraphs about a topic I’m asking it about, I may find one specific sentence that I may save from it because that sentence helps me to better describe the relationship between that topic and another topic I’m researching. So the idea (hopefully) when I’m done is to take these individual separate sentences and then reword and integrate them into a paragraph that articulates a bigger picture of my work in a much simpler, concise form than the excessive verbosity I’ve used in the past.

“Knowing Thyself” Through AI

What if Artificial intelligence could accelerate self-knowledge?
How interacting with artificial intelligence will boost your own self-awareness and teach you how to become a better learner Published on Medium and first It is still a common belief that machines will eventually know more about humans than we ever will, as they are able to absorb and

So, next time we ask ourselves how artificial intelligence could augment humans, perhaps another response may be, by making us more human. Artificial intelligence can help us understand ourselves better and faster.

There’s been a ton of chatter recently about Artificial Intelligence but I think most of the discussion is completely missing the point of its true potential. That being helping us to understand ourselves at a deeper level by learning about us and expressing who we truly are.

For example, I’m completely perplexed why someone hasn’t create an AI for this already, that harvests the decades of content you’ve written on your blog and then articulates who you are in a clear and concise way.

More than anything, we all want to be truly seen and understood. What if AI could achieve this by seeing the patterns within our own lives and understanding the meaningful relationships arising from them? This could create a completely new way to articulate yourself beyond the outdated and severely limited resume.

Augment: An AI Productivity Assistant

I’ve previously indicated that Mark Zuckerberg has everything backwards. Instead of mining people’s data and using it against them, he should be charging people to mine their own social media data to help them understand themselves better.

It looks like a company called Augment AI Corp is kind of taking a step towards this in creating an AI assistant called Augment that “learns your needs” and “supports” you with your productivity.

Augment is a first-of-its-kind context-aware AI, dedicated to helping you excel through your hectic work day, freeing up time for you to do the things you love. It learns your needs and provides you with the type of support that we used to only dream about.

No more being caught off guard by another calendar alert because of back-to-back meetings, wasting time trying to dig for context, or struggling to take notes. Your Augment tells you everything you need to know about the meeting, including what led up to it; takes notes; captures the presentation materials, and summarizes it all for you afterward. It’s AI that actually works for you as a true ear-whispering, task-doing assistant.

In my opinion, the real potential of AI technology will be when it can analyze what your interests are in terms of the personal knowledge management flows that you’re aggregating (i.e. reading, watching, etc) and then analyze the patterns and relationships within it to provide insights on understanding who you are on a deeper level.

In effect, there’s a lot of hype these days about understanding your passion and purpose, with a lot of people misunderstanding what that actually means. It’s not surface things (i.e. job, interests, etc) but rather the patterns and relationships between everything you do that’s often hidden below the surface of your life but which unifies your life as a whole. I honestly believe the right AI technology that’s optimized for this, could actually help a person to reflectively become aware and “know thyself” on a deeper level.
