ChatGPT and AI: What they mean for small business — intracen — 6 April 2023 (LINK)
— Smart digital technologies are already widely used in agriculture in high-income countries. For instance, AI is being used in robotic milking systems in places such as Braz, Austria, to decide which cow should be milked when, with little supervision from the farmer. In low-income countries, on the other hand, AI is mainly limited to small-scale smart farming and satellite imagery processing at the level of smallholder farming. But looking around, we can anticipate future uses, if an appropriate business model can be found.
In Senegal, chatbots are being used instead of customer care operators as clients and investors alike want to reduce costs. In the Philippines, some of its 1.2 million business-process-management jobs — to a large extent customer care for global clients ‚Ä" could be replaced through robotic process automation.
"ITC's SME Trade Academy is already experimenting with tools such as Synthesia to produce videos with human-like avatars in multiple languages and accents. We need to help our beneficiaries leverage this technology as well, for instance the tailor in Burundi who is using ChatGPT to draft marketing materials like brochures and website content."
Generative AI In The Enterprise — Use Cases & Early Learnings — forbes ● — 26 March 2023 (LINK)
— In customer support, generative AI — including GPT3+ and other Large Learning Models, is transforming conversational chatbot capabilities into one that feels natural, is more accurate, and is better able to sense and react to tone and emotions.
Around business insights, generative AI now allows business users to ask questions in natural language. The AI can now convert these into SQL queries, run against the internal databases, and return the answer in a structured narrative — all within minutes. The advantage here isn't just the efficiency — it's the speed of decision-making and the ability for business users to interrogate the data more directly and interactively.
Third, in programming automation, Large language models are highly accurate in multiple languages — including computer language. Software developers are reducing the time to write code and associated documentation by almost 50%. For example, the Microsoft Power Automate program — a tool for robotic process automation — can now be programmed using natural language to automate tasks and workflows in a more intuitive and user-friendly manner. ¬†Not only is this more efficient than getting large teams of programmers and testers involved, but it also reduces time and iteration to get automation up and running.
—Enterprises should set up a small focused group tasked with experimenting with Generative AI and reengineering core business processes. This group should report to the¬†highest levels in the organization and be goaled with figuring out how to disrupt current processes and business models. Because it has the potential to disrupt existing ways of doing things, it requires a sharp focus and clear sponsorship.

Can ChatGPT review restaurants? Our food critic tests it out — chicagotribune — 26 January 2023 (LINK)
— When I asked if it had ever been to a restaurant I knew would have loads written about it online, ChatGPT wrote back: "As an AI, I do not have physical presence and therefore I haven't been to any physical location."
But when I asked it to write a restaurant review of Alinea, it didn't hesitate: "— is a truly unique dining experience. The food is meticulously crafted and visually stunning, with an emphasis on creativity and innovation. The flavors are bold and complex, and the dishes are expertly paired with a wide selection of wines. The service is impeccable, with attentive and knowledgeable staff who are happy to explain the dishes and the techniques used to prepare them. The atmosphere is elegant and intimate, making it the perfect spot for a special occasion. Overall, Alinea is a must-visit for anyone interested in cutting-edge culinary experiences."
While basically coherent, and not too far off from some Yelp reviews, you may have noticed an almost complete lack of specifics. Replace the restaurant's name and the "review" could apply to any number of fine-dining restaurants in Chicago.
"ChatGPT can get more specific, but I found it also became less accurate. When I asked it to write a detailed restaurant review of Alinea, mentioning every single course, it started spitting out names of dishes I don't think ever appeared on the restaurant's menu."

— Students who use ChatGPT can further refine their paper by using other programs like Grammarly, which corrects spelling and grammar mistakes and assesses style and tone. And of course, students can also rewrite passages in their own voice. "Change some words, run it through another checking system," says a professor. "There's really no way to win this fight right now."
Another says there are ethical ways for educators to use the technology in class — for example, by comparing the AI's writing to a student's and analyzing the strengths and weaknesses of using the tool.
She says a class could use ChatGPT to write an essay on the plot of "Hamlet" and then analyze the quality of what it spits out. They could also question the references used and whether the analysis was accurate. She says that would allow students to think critically on the effectiveness of the tool.
She also notes that ChatGPT does not produce a bibliography to go with the essays it writes — a red flag for professors trying to determine if a bot was involved. However she notes that there are online tools that can generate footnotes and sourcing for an existing paper.
