I've been playing around with this software for a min and it's throwing back some pretty awesome results. Heres one I just did for a Service Email Blast. What can you guys see it being used for in our industry?

ChatGPT is AI coming to main street. ASK QUESTIONS/GET ANSWERS Disruption is going to explode everywhere:
  • Information workers with little human contact (i.e. remote customer support workers)... toast.
  • Internet content creators as a service... toast. (jasper.ai players everywhere)
  • The entire school system as we know it... toast.
  • The primary care medical system as we know it... toast.
  • Developers?? Yes, ChatGPT writes java and pyhthon and troubleshoots bugs
Microsoft is a backer of ChaptGPT (openai is the parent). It really is a threat to google. Look for Google, Meta, Tesla and more to unleash their beasts onto main street.

OpenAI's is powering GhatGPT, mind bending DallE, VallE others (you gotta google it, it's sick). OpenAI is a entrepreneur/developers dream come true, a dreamy ideation sandbox and power your dream via API.

There is a wave of GPT powered startups that is building crazy stuff at light speed.

2023 is the year that AI stepped foot on main street. It's simply going to blow everything up.

ChatGPT is pretty insane and cool, and I can't deny the handiness of streamlining some simple, straightforward marketing copy (although I will say that the Service Email example above is too long, rigid, and overly descriptive of the services. Of course it can help you start and then you can pare it down from there and add a little more personality lol). I think there is value in automating some rote, repetitive tasks, but not using it in any capacity where relationship-building is important.

However, I will caution to be wary of using it in active customer-facing interactions. Arguably, it still has time to learn, but I don't think it's quite ready. Check out what we asked it yesterday:

"What is the difference between the 2023 Tahoe and the 2022 Tahoe?"

"The 2022 and 2023 Chevrolet Tahoe are two different model years of the same vehicle, and there may be some differences between them. However, without more specific information, it is not possible for me to accurately compare the two model years and identify any differences.

In general, it is common for automakers to make updates and changes to their vehicle models from one year to the next, in order to improve performance, safety, and features. These changes can include updates to the engine, suspension, interior and exterior design, and technology features.

If you would like more information about the specific differences between the 2022 and 2023 Tahoe, I recommend contacting a Chevrolet dealership or consulting the manufacturer's website. They should be able to provide you with more detailed information about the features and changes that have been made to the Tahoe for each model year."


This might be a strong statement, but I'm not sure it could ever be convincingly human in a customer service way. It has a massive data set that it was trained on, but could have a tough time relating to customers or interacting with them in a meaningful way.

Just my two cents!

You're 100% right. Customer facing interactions especially when it relates to relationship building, human to human interaction is most ideal. However as an individual who also creates chat and automated task bots, they're best used for performing repetitive time consuming tasks.

Setting up appointments
Data entry
Data scraping
Data verification and so forth

I personally think we are entering an era of technological overload, where businesses will think band aid solutions will transform their businesses and be sadly disappointed when they struggle to maintain them.

Chat CPT's current knowledge cut-off is 2021, so if you were to revise your question to ask the difference between a 2019 and 2020 Tahoe, you would receive a much better answer. Also, the more detailed you can be in your question and what you're looking for, the better the response you'll receive.

ChatGPT is a generalist right now, it is not a domain expert, but, when it goes down the rabbit hole into auto's ocean of structured and unstructured data, we got winners and losers.

2024 Winners: Any co that owns the keys to auto's ocean of structured data (i.e. JD Power, OEMs & thier build sheets, etc)
2025 at Risk: Autotrader, Cars, truecar, edmunds and Gurus are at risk. (the entire car shopping UX shifts)

Watch CEOs fight to hold onto legacy revenues, at the same time the gate keepers of auto data will find new ways to leverage what they own.

Oh, and just wait till OpenAI gets competition from Google, Meta, and other jillion dollar tech beasts. ASK QUESTIONS/GET ANSWERS Disruption is going to explode everywhere
