Many of us have seen the light in terms of how to use ChatGPT. I have done some research on how others use the tool, and I will also provide some examples of how I use it myself. I hope this can be an inspiration on how to use ChatGPT in your startup to have a more efficient day. There are also great opportunities here to create new business opportunities and disruptive solutions.
At the end of the article, there are some tips on how to get started, including registration and tips on other resources and tools that are available. What are your best tips?
Use in meetings
I am engaged as an advisor for a foundation based in Los Angeles that works with patents. In our last meeting, we used ChatGPT to create a list of Open AI platforms. We also asked a creative question about the use of NFTs (non-fungible tokens). We got suitable answers, which provided a basis for an excellent discussion.
Instead of the old “check it out and we’ll take it up at the next meeting,” we could clarify this in 2 minutes.
Here are some other examples:
Notes: You can use ChatGPT to take notes from the meeting automatically while you are talking. This can save you time and ensure that you don’t forget important points.
Questions and answers: You can use ChatGPT to answer questions that come up in the meeting, so you can stay focused on the discussion.
References and examples: You can use ChatGPT to find relevant references and examples that can help strengthen your arguments during the meeting.
Summary: After the meeting, you can use ChatGPT to create a summary of what we discussed and the important decisions that were made.
Translation: If the meeting is to be held in multiple languages, ChatGPT can help you translate what is being said into the desired language.
Joshua Wöhle, co-founder and CEO of edtech company Mindstone and former co-founder and CTO of SuperAwesome, uses generative AI for a range of uses in his startup day-to-day. This includes a social media assistant he built with the help of ChatGPT and image generators DALL-E and Stable Diffusion.
Wöhle’s Excel app allows him to enter the text for a tweet in a single spreadsheet, which then creates graphics for use on social media. This includes a headline for the tweet, placed over an image that is automatically generated based on the text he writes.
“It just means that the time to go from an idea to something you can publish is now a minute or less, instead of it taking around 20 minutes,” says Wöhle.
He also uses ChatGPT in multiple ways to help him generate content for his startup. This includes feeding the system with examples of previous essays he has written and asking it to suggest ideas for new posts. He also uses ChatGPT to come up with suggestions for questions for guests on his podcast.
However, even though Wöhle says that generative AI has strengthened his ability to create high-quality content, he still plans to hire a head of product marketing at Mindstone, but with different expectations.
– I will still want an expert there, but my expectations for that person have skyrocketed. I expect them to do more work at the same time.Joshua Wöhle
Integration with Google Search
ChatGPT for Google allows you to integrate ChatGPT into Google Chrome and get search results directly in the browser. This enhances the value of the search results. Keep in mind that the data used as the basis for answers is about two years old.

- Taking notes and creating summaries of videos
Glasp is a tool for taking notes and adding markings from websites. You can find and save articles from friends. I use it mostly to transcribe and create summaries of videos. Supports all the most popular browsers.
Peter Nixey is the founder of the task management app Intentional. As a solo founder, Nixey is currently building the entire technology stack himself. Peter uses ChatGPT every day as a personal web development assistant.
He describes in an article on Sifted how it has given him the ability to speed up work with the development tool, Docker. He hadn’t used it before, and uses ChatGPT to ask for details about the tool.
“It’s been very good at explaining what I should do. It’s been very good at giving me code examples. ChatGPT explains distinct lines of code and why they’re there, and does it efficiently,” he says.
He says it would normally have taken him about two weeks to learn how to use the tool. With ChatGPT it took two days.

Who will own ChatGPT in the future?
According to The New York Times, Microsoft is in talks with OpenAI about an investment of up to $10 billion. They have previously invested $3 billion, and have a “right of first refusal” in the agreement.
I consider it likely that they will invest more.

Other ways to use AI in your business
There are many ways to use artificial intelligence (AI) in a startup. Here are some other examples:
Prediction models: AI models can predict future trends and outcomes, such as in economics, customer behavior, and sales.
Automation: AI technology can automate repetitive tasks, such as responding to customer questions, following up on leads, or handling administration.
Analysis: AI tools can analyze large amounts of data, such as to identify patterns or to uncover new opportunities.
Image and sound recognition: AI tools can recognize objects or sounds, such as to sort images or to recognize voices.
Quantitative analysis: AI tools can analyze large amounts of data and generate reports that can help you make better decisions.
Development of new products: AI can develop new products or services that are more efficient or better suited to customers.

How are you using ChatGPT or other AI tools today and what plans do you have for the future?
ChatGPT is available via a website, so there is no need to download anything. OpenAI has not yet released an official app, although the app stores are full of fake versions. You should install and use these with caution, as they are not official ChatGPT apps.
Supposedly, you can download ChatGPT locally through GitHub, but I haven’t tried that yet.

Short about ChatGTP
ChatGPT is an advanced artificial intelligence (AI) model developed by OpenAI. It is a variant of the GPT (Generative Pre-trained Transformer) model. The specialization is to generate human-like text for conversational AI.
They trained ChatGPT on a large amount of conversations and dialogues. This gives it the ability to understand context and perform a range of tasks such as answering questions, generating responses, and writing text that resembles human-written text.
They used ChatGPT in a variety of applications, such as chatbots, virtual assistants, and automated text generation.
