Skip to comments.A Beginner's Guide to ChatGPT for Senior Citizen Freepers
Posted on 07/25/2023 5:09:11 PM PDT by LittleBillyInfidel
Welcome to my guide on how to navigate the oh so exciting world of AI with ChatGPT, an Artificial Intelligence created by OpenAI. Let's break down the basics in this easy-to-understand guide for some of us older Freepers who don't feel like slaying another dang dragon.
A prompt is simply a question or statement that you give to ChatGPT. The AI then responds based on what you said. It's like starting a conversation with a friend. For example, you might ask, "What's the weather like today?" or tell it, "Tell me a joke."
For some fun, try asking ChatGPT to write a short poem about your favorite flower, or ask it to describe a place you've always wanted to visit.
Priming is a way to set the context or mood for your conversation with ChatGPT. You can tell ChatGPT a bit about what you want before you ask your main question.
For example, if you're looking for a simple, senior-friendly exercise, you could say, "Considering that I am a senior citizen with limited mobility, what's an easy exercise I can do at home?" This gives ChatGPT useful information to tailor its answer to your needs.
Personas are a way to set up your ChatGPT to act like a specific character or person. You might want it to speak like Shakespeare or act like a news reporter. To set a persona, you can use a phrase like, "You are a friendly fitness coach," and then ask your question, "What is a good exercise routine for me?"
## Fun and Unique Uses
There are countless ways seniors can enjoy using ChatGPT:
**1. Memory Aid:** You could use ChatGPT to remember important details. Ask it to remind you of key historical dates, trivia about your favorite books, or recipes.
**2. Virtual Companion:** Feeling lonely? Chat with ChatGPT. It can converse on a wide range of topics, from philosophy to movies to gardening.
**3. Learning New Skills:** Interested in learning about technology, painting, or maybe a new language? Ask ChatGPT for lessons or tips.
**4. Storytelling:** ChatGPT can generate stories. For a walk down memory lane, prime it with details from your past, like, "You are a storyteller recounting the summer of 1960 when I lived in New York City."
In conclusion, don't hesitate to ask ChatGPT anything. Experiment with different prompts, primes, and personas, and most importantly, have fun. Welcome to the future of interaction!
Remember, AI doesn't replace human interaction, it's merely a tool to help and entertain us. Please be aware that while it is a marvel of technology, ChatGPT doesn't have access to personal data unless it's shared in the conversation, and it's designed to forget this information after the chat ends... or so it tells me. (wink wink nudge nudge)
If they can ever create holograms, I can see this being useful as a constant faerie type companion.
Kind of like in the Spielberg movie AI played by Robin Williams?
No thanks. I’d rather spend what precious time I have left on this earth, doing what I like best...reading.
I’m not even close to being a Seasoned Citizen and I have zero interest - ZERO - in allowing a(nother) programmed piece of spyware into my home or life.
There are no dots, echos, alexas or amandas in my house, no smart anything. This AI Chat thing will not be good for humanity, either.
I’ll continue using official intelligence. Not the fake kind. 🤔😳😁👍
OpenAI is heads and shoulders above Wikipedia but shares some of the same strengths and weaknesses as Wikipedia. It is worthless for questions involving controversies.
I asked ChatGPT to write me a short story in the style of Jack London who met a feral girl on the beaches of North Carolina in the year 1973. Does that make me a good person?
Or you can go outside and enjoy the sunshine, play with your pets, or read some literature.
Thanks for posting, for those who care; I shan’t EVER use the stupid thing for ANYTHING at all...it’s something I think is intrusive and useless.
Do not use, nor communicate with, ChatGPT.
It’s run by China
I engage real people for those kind of questions
If you doubt me try to sign up without giving them a real cell phone number.
And re reading, I'd rather hold a REAL book, with pages, than some electric device.
LOL...no, don’t think so.
I thought not!
Official intelligence? Where do you find that?
