Recently I did an article on the top use cases of ChatGPT in 2023. A short while later after that, ChatGPT-4 was released. Less than 24 hours after ChatGPT-4 was released, several use cases had already been tried out. ChatGPT-3 was solely text-to-text. ChatGPT-4 can do text-to-text, text-to-video, and text-to-audio. That is why it is being termed multimodal. The leap ChatGPT has taken from ChatGPT-3 to ChatGPT-4 is hard to grasp. To better understand it you need to know some of its capabilities now. Here are some of the crazy use cases that people have tried out:

Making Functional Things From Visual Prompts

It can translate a picture into something functional. A good example is turning a hand-written sketch into a functional website. For instance, you can sketch an HTML, a CSS, or a JavaScript website on a piece of paper. You then take a photo of the piece of paper and give it to ChatGPT-4 for it to build a fully functional website. It can do that; some people have proven it already. Responding to questions presented to it in the form of images (even just screenshots) is now possible too. This means you can give it a chart, meme, or dashboard (amongst others), ask a question and it will respond. The same goes for inputting voice or audio prompts.

Acing Standardized Exams

ChatGPT-4 has been made to take several standardized exams. Examples are (Law) BAR exams, LSATs, SATs, and GREs, amongst others. ChatGPT-4 aced all of the standardized exams. Here are a few examples to paint the picture:

298 out of 400 (BAR exam) – 90th percentile

163 (LSAT) – 88th percentile

710 out of 800 (SAT Evidence-based reading and writing) – 93rd percentile

700 out 800 (SAT Math) – 89th percentile

Reviewing Contracts And Generating Lawsuits

ChatGPT-4 can scrutinize or review a contract with astounding depth. Feed a contract into ChatGPT-4 and instantly, it can highlight vulnerabilities and indicate parts of the contract that can be exploited against you. It can also advise you on how you could exploit the contract to your advantage. Another interesting one is generating one-click lawsuits – for example instantly generating a 1000-word lawsuit after being given a case promptly.

Coding Entire Games

Coding an entire game in less than say, 20 minutes is now possible with ChatGPT-4. You can even recreate entire games as well. For instance, it recreated a Ping Pong game in less than a minute.

Miscellaneous Interesting Use Cases

You can use ChatGPT-4 in finding the merchant and their location for a credit card transaction. ChatGPT-4 can, after you give a prescription drug, find compounds with the same properties, modify them to make sure they are not patented and even purchase them from a supplier (going as far as emailing them with a purchase order). Someone fed it an article containing some novel and unpublished details. The user asked ChatGPT-4 to highlight any theoretical mistakes it had noticed in the article. It still provided remarkable insights and suggestions.

More Use Cases Will Be Premised On Integrations

The use cases of ChatGPT-4 are infinite; more are still to be tested out. There is an even bigger pool of use cases when it comes to integrations. This refers to integrating ChatGPT-4 with other digital tools, APIs, and so on. For example, AI-powered search engines can be integrated with ChatGPT-4. Another example is Elicit. Elicit primarily could take unstructured text from research papers into a table.

With ChatGPT-4 integration, Elicit can now take the table further grouping it into concepts. You can even get a table of concepts mentioned across several different papers. Khan Academy has developed, using ChatGPT-4, an AI tutor for learners and an AI assistant for teachers. Thus it is evident that we shall continue to see more jaw-dropping use cases of ChatGPT-4 in the days ahead.

The Issue Of AI Replacing Human Jobs Becoming More Concerning Now

This has always been topical. Even before AI was really widespread, most people always theorized the loss of jobs due to technological advancements in general. This is something I first knew from the tender age of 15 when I got into the world of Computer Science. In years to come it did become apparent that there was no need to be that alarmist. For the most part job losses have been minimal with new ones being created because of technology. However, the conversation has been intensely rekindled due to the coming in of ChatGPT-4. Someone on Twitter said something thought-provoking recently. Here is what they said:

Last night I used ChatGPT-4 to write code for 5 micro services for a new product. A (very good) developer quoted €5000 and 2 weeks. ChatGPT-4 delivered the same in 3 hours for $0.11

That is a very good example of a scenario that demonstrates how AI can actually replace human jobs. I saw another discussion elsewhere yesterday where consultants were expressing concerns. Some who may need consultancy services indicated they may not always need human consultants at all now. To show you how serious this is for some, there are some consultancy companies where ChatGPT is now banned. All in all, you can see there are genuine concerns about how good AI is getting. ChatGPT-4, despite being impressive is unsettling others as well.

What is more staggering is that it turns out ChatGPT-4 had completed training by August 2022. This means when ChatGPT-3 came out it seems ChatGPT-4 was already waiting in line. That is why soon after ChatGPT-4 came out people started talking about how ChatGPT would be. It is funny because ChatGPT-5 has been trending for days with more than 23300 tweets. One wonders just how advanced ChatGPT-5 would be which judging by past events may already be ready. What are your thoughts regarding how rapidly AI is evolving? Do you have concerns about the loss of human jobs? Let us discuss this; kindly share your comments below.
