Discover how LLMs, especially ChatGPT, are revolutionising daily tasks, making life more efficient and enjoyable.

We all want to find ways of doing things more effectively and quickly, and lucky for us the tools to simplify daily tasks are often closer than we think. AI and large language models (LLMs) are now as accessible as our smartphones. As we’ve been figuring out ways to utilise it as a team, we figured we’d share what we’ve found for everyday life.

1. LLMs as your virtual assistant

Remember when we all wanted an assistant like Jarvis from Iron Man? Enter ChatGPT. In our interconnected world, the volume of information and tasks we handle daily can be overwhelming. That's where Large Language Models (LLMs) like ChatGPT can come into play, acting as a virtual assistant, which you can tailor to your needs:

  • Simplifying the complex: LLMs can break down intricate topics, explaining them in simple, digestible terms. Whether you're trying to understand a new concept or explain it to someone else, LLMs can be your go-to guide.
  • Objective review: Got that “been staring too long” feeling about your work? Let an LLM take a look and give you a fresh perspective.
  • Summarise: If you feel swamped with meeting notes, LLMs can help trim the excess, leaving you with just the juicy bits.
  • Day-to-day admin: With ChatGPT, you can schedule your to-do list, summarise meeting notes, and even create meeting agendas or basic document templates.
  • Email management: If you give it the right context on tone and style, ChatGPT can draft and handle email responses.

With LLMs by your side, you have a powerful tool that not only simplifies tasks but also enhances the quality of your work, making daily challenges more manageable.

2. Boost productivity and creativity with ChatGPT and Midjourney

In the digital age, efficiency and innovation go hand in hand. With tools like ChatGPT and Midjourney at our fingertips, a range of tasks can become more streamlined and creative:

  • Brainstorming: While ChatGPT is data-driven, it's a handy tool for spitballing high-level ideas, acting as a springboard for your whacky ideas.
  • Writing aid: Struggling to find the words? Give ChatGPT a prompt.
  • Upskill: Keen on learning a new language or summarising books? ChatGPT is your go-to guide.
  • Design magic with Midjourney: That eye-popping image in this blog? Yep, that’s the Midjourney touch. For the designers out there, Midjourney can craft interesting visuals or even good ol’ stock images to capture your audience's attention.

Harnessing the power of these tools not only streamlines tasks but also elevates the quality of output, be it in writing or design.

3. Unwind and relax with ChatGPT

Trip planning:

  • Tailored recommendations: Share your dreams with ChatGPT, and it’ll make sure the perfect destination awaits.
  • Itinerary creation: Craft a day-by-day itinerary to make sure you hit all the must-see spots and discover hidden gems.
  • Expedia's integration with ChatGPT: Travel booking giant Expedia has integrated ChatGPT into its app, enhancing the trip planning experience. This Fast Company article talks about how users can now get advice on where to go, stay, and what activities there are. The chatbot even saves hotels for you to refer back to.
  • Travel tips: Get the lowdown on local customs, top spots, and the best street food.
  • Budgeting: Get cost-effective travel options, from affordable accommodations to free local attractions.

Recipe planning:

  • Ingredient-based suggestions: List the ingredients you have, and ChatGPT will spit out dishes you can cook.
  • Dietary preferences: Customise your recipe to suit dietary needs, whether vegan, gluten-free, or keto.
  • Wine and beverage pairings: Level up your supper with the right wine pairings.
  • Cooking tips: Get help with cooking techniques or ingredient substitutes.

5. ChatGPT for real-life situations

The capabilities of AI-powered chatbots like ChatGPT are not just for tech geeks anymore. As highlighted in a recent article by The New York Times, here are a few real-life ways folks are letting AI lend a hand:

  • Parenting advice (obvs to be taken with a pinch of salt): Like how to decode teen-speak or navigate sensitive chats.
  • Make storytime for the kids a bit more unique: Craft unique bedtime stories, incorporating familiar tidbits from daily life to captivate your audience of little humans.
  • Get your flirt on: Slide into your crush’s DMs with a bit more than just “Hey”.
  • Express love with some creativity: Instead of just the same old “Happy birthday” in a card, light up someone’s day with a special poem.
  • Keep it professional: Drafting, reviewing, refining– get a fresh perspective on wording and content.

6. InsureTech - Simplifying the complex

Navigating the world of insurance used to be synonymous with heaps of paperwork and long waiting times. But with the arrival of AI, this landscape is rapidly changing. At Naked, we're leveraging AI to offer a seamless, transparent, and efficient insurance experience.
