The breath-taking possibilities and uses of OpenAI’s ChatGPT are simply endless and intoxicating
It’s still early days. Companies are trying to figure out the legal and ethical implications of a content world suddenly turned on its head by artificial intelligence. And yet … applying powerful AI to everyday tasks is awesome.
So, I challenged my online community… let’s have some fun and come up with some non-obvious uses and share them with the world.
- Write a novel
Giuseppe Fratoni wants to write a novel.
“Wow, this thing is unbelievable! I’m speechless. I literally asked the first thing I could think of, combining three of my passions: writing, mystery novels, and jazz.
“The request was: “Develop a plot for a mystery novel where a disillusioned homicide detective hunts a clever serial killer who preys on musicians who perform the jazz standard Autumn Leaves”.
“Here’s what I got:
Detective James Thompson is a seasoned veteran of the Homicide department, but lately he’s been feeling burnt out and disillusioned. His latest case, the murder of a young jazz pianist who was found brutally killed in his home, only serves to deepen his sense of despair … (much more provided)
- Guest speaker Q&A prompts
Richard Bliss suggests:
You have a guest speaker coming to your event and you are going to want to ask questions from the audience…have ChatGPT pre-generate some of the questions for you. The moderator can say, “And here’s a question for you from our AI?”
For example, the conference is about water scarcity in the US West. The speaker is an expert on water management. Here was my query to the AI…
What questions should I ask an expert on desalination and its impact?
ChatGPT responded with…
- How is desalination currently being used around the world, and in what types of locations is it most effective?
- What are the potential advantages and disadvantages of using desalination to provide fresh water?
- What are some of the key challenges and limitations of desalination technology, and how are they being addressed?
- Creating games
Richard is also a well-known expert in board games. He suggests that ChatGPT could be used to plot out and design new games. Note: Some people have started getting help solving crossword puzzle clues.
- Dating help
Tanya Thompson thinks it could help with dating. ChatGPT says:
If you’re looking to add a little flirtation to your first message on a dating app, here are a few ideas to get you started:
- You caught my eye from across the screen. I couldn’t resist saying hi and seeing if there’s a spark between us.
- Your profile photo is stunning. I can’t stop thinking about your [Feature] and how much I’d love to get to know you better.
- I’m not usually one to make the first move, but I just had to message you. You’re incredibly [Attractive Quality] and I can’t wait to chat with you.”
- Hi there! I saw your profile and I’m not going to lie, I’m a little intimidated. You’re so [Attractive Quality] and I’m feeling a little starstruck.

- Dealing with loneliness and anxiety
We have all found ChatGPT excelling at one-on-on conversations.
PepperBrooks provided this input: “I’m really sad and lonely right now.”
ChatGPT: I’m sorry to hear that you’re feeling sad and lonely. It’s natural to feel down sometimes, but it’s important to remember that you’re not alone. There are many people who care about you and want to help you. It can be helpful to talk to someone about your feelings, whether it’s a close friend, family member, or mental health professional.
Sometimes, just expressing your thoughts and emotions to someone else can help to alleviate your sadness and loneliness. It’s also important to take care of yourself and do things that make you happy, such as spending time with loved ones, pursuing a hobby, or exercising. These things can help to improve your mood and make you feel more connected to others. Remember that you are strong and capable, and that you can get through this difficult time.
Daniel Nestle said: I thought ChatGPT could be used therapeutically, so I asked it to generate journal prompts to help me deal with anxiety:
- Write down the things that are causing you anxiety at the moment. Describe a situation in which you felt anxious and how you coped with it.
- Reflect on how your thoughts and beliefs contribute to your anxiety.
- Write a letter to your anxiety, expressing your feelings and concerns
- Imagine yourself in a calm and peaceful place and describe it in detail.
- (many more items followed)
- Naming things
Another use I thought of is naming ideas.
Me: Help me come up with a name for a new drink. It’s got Japanese gin, unsweetened tonic, lime, Szechuan pepper, and grapefruit.
ChatGPT: How about “Sakura Sunrise?” The name incorporates the Japanese gin and the citrus flavors of grapefruit and lime, and the word “sunrise” suggests a fresh and invigorating start to the day. Alternatively, you could go with something like “Peppered Grapefruit Gin Fizz” to emphasize the unique flavor combination of Szechuan pepper and grapefruit.
- Translation on the go
Lisa Monks suggests: You can use ChatGPT on your mobile, so it is a perfect translation tool. Say for example you are traveling in Italy and you need help:
ME: Translate the following into Italian
My car is nearly out of fuel, can you tell me where the nearest petrol station is?
ChatGPT: “La mia auto sta per esaurire il carburante, mi puoi dire dove si trova la stazione di servizio più vicina?”
Lisa Monks also added:
ME: I wish to be able to run 5km in 3 months’ time. Outline a running plan for me to be able to achieve this
ChatGPt: Here is a running plan that can help you run 5km in 3 months:
- Start by walking for 15–20 minutes each day to build up your endurance and get your body used to regular exercise.
- After a week of walking, begin incorporating short jogs into your routine. Start by jogging for 1–2 minutes at a time, with walking breaks in between. Gradually increase the length of your jogs and reduce the amount of time you spend walking.
- Once you can jog for 10 minutes without stopping, start increasing the distance of your runs. Aim to run 1km without stopping and then gradually increase the distance over time.
- In addition to your regular runs, incorporate strength training and stretching into your routine to improve your overall fitness and reduce the risk of injury.
