 4 Actionable Ways to Get Started with AI today

  1. Writing Stuff

    AI tools such as ChatGPT-4 and Claude 2 can assist in drafting various types of written content from blog posts to speeches, improving overall writing quality by suggesting alterations, and inspiring creativity.

    However, AI may "hallucinate," creating plausible yet false content, and cannot self-analyze or explain its outputs, which could pose bias and ethical concerns. It's crucial to verify the information provided by AI.

  2. Generating Images

    Tools like Stable Diffusion, DALL-E, Midjourney, and Adobe Firefly offer diverse image generation capabilities, with each having unique advantages and requirements for use.

    Biases exist in the AI models, and the copyright legality of generated images is currently in a grey area.

  3. Ideating

    AI, particularly Bing and ChatGPT 4, can be effective for generating a volume of creative ideas by applying unusual idea generation techniques or deriving inspiration from different sources.

    The output can be as eccentric as you desire, from ideas based on a random patent to ideas inspired by your favorite superhero.

  4. Data Crunching & Analytics

    Tools like Code Interpreter can upload files to the AI, execute programs, run data analyses, and create a range of outputs from web pages to games.

    Claude 2 is effective for large documents or many documents at once, while Bing Sidebar is useful for smaller documents and webpages.
