[DDIntel] Data Economy, ChatGPT, and Entrepreneurship
In less than one year, we have seen major breakthroughs in text and image AI tools, especially in the democratization of AI tools. Important tools like Stable Diffusion (image generation) and ChatGPT have taken the job market by storm. They are even attacking “safe” fields, such as art and illustrations industries, content writing and even coding.
All of this have raised the opportunity for many people to become solopreneurs, and use these tools to provide new services, or, in some cases, even start entire business lines on top of them. It’s clear right now that these tools are changing the game, especially since big companies such as Apple, Google, Amazon are firing people en masse.
Now, you may also want to get the chance to use these tools to earn some extra income. Or maybe you want to make enough money to live out of these tools - and other emerging AI tools of the future. If that is the case, this article will give you 20 interesting use cases in which you can use ChatGPT - be it for yourself, for your business or for your clients.
As a highly versatile language model, ChatGPT can be applied to a broad spectrum of use cases across different industries, such as natural language processing, chatbot development, content generation, language translation and coding.
However, it’s worth noting that while ChatGPT's capabilities are impressive, it should not be viewed as a substitute for human expertise and knowledge. ChatGPT sometimes gives false information, that may not accurately reflect the reality - so using it in a domain that you have expertise in, is crucial. Think of this AI tool as your subordinate - you tell him to do certain things, but you need to check out the work it has done, before you use it.
20 Creative Ways To Use ChatGPT
Speaking of the opportunities that are arising in the new AI-driven market, Prompt Engineering could a very sought after job in the near future.
Prompt engineering involves developing and refining AI models using step-by-step instructions or “prompts” to guide the AI model to generate desirable responses to text inputs. The goal is to optimize language models to provide more accurate and relevant text outputs. It’s a field that’s gaining popularity rapidly due to the high salaries being offered for prompt engineering roles.
So, what does a prompt engineer do? Well, they work with large language models like GPT-3 or GPT-4 and design prompts that generate desirable responses from language models. They also enhance the models to provide better text outputs. A prompt engineer’s tasks include optimizing language models, writing prose to test AI systems for quirks, reviewing and analyzing datasets, developing and maintaining documentation for language models, and training language models on new data sets.
Becoming a prompt engineer doesn’t necessarily require a computer science degree or prior coding knowledge, but it is important to learn programming basics, natural language processing (NLP), and machine learning (ML) concepts. Aspiring prompt engineers can start by learning the basics of programming with Python, followed by NLP and ML concepts, and then practicing developing prompts and fine-tuning language models.
Of course, the concept of prompt engineering can also be applied to the image generation area. Choosing the right keywords (or tokens) when generating images using tools like Stable Diffusion, Dall-e or others, is critical for generating high-quality images and illustrations. So, if you are interested in this field, start researching and get into the action!

One of the major concern around ChatGPT is the fact that it will replace many jobs, and leave people jobless and in debt. And no field or area is immune to it - including the finance and investment jobs.
ChatGPT is not your typical chatbot that simply provides human-like answers to your questions. It's more akin to a personal assistant that can perform a variety of tasks, including writing custom cover letters and essays, creating music, and even debugging code.
Despite its impressive capabilities, ChatGPT is not without its imperfections, like its limited common sense and emotional intelligence, difficulty in grasping context, and propensity for biased responses. In other words, it's like a brilliant but socially awkward colleague who could use some extra guidance.
Nevertheless, ChatGPT is a groundbreaking achievement in the world of AI and technology. It's fascinating to consider what the future might bring with this technology. While AI is able to assist with many finance and investment-related tasks, it is not yet advanced enough to completely replace human workers. So, there's no need to worry about finance and investment job security at the moment! However, you should definitely include it into your daily work - as it will speed up a lot of your tasks.
ChatGPT in Financial And Investment Jobs?
What is certain in today’s era, is that data is becoming the most critical part needed for the advancement of AI tools, and even humanity. Without the loads of data that were needed for training, ChatGPT would be as smart as a man after 2 bottles of whisky (or worse).
In today's world, data is the new gold rush! The digital era has transformed data into a priceless asset that powers the global economy. With social media and connected devices exploding in numbers, companies now have access to a wealth of data that they can use to revolutionize their operations, create innovative solutions, and enhance customer experience.
The data economy is complex and involves the collection, storage, analysis, and application of data. Using data also brings an array of benefits like decreased entry barriers, better decision-making, personalized services, innovation, and job opportunities.
But like any treasure hunt, the search for data comes with its fair share of challenges. Issues such as data privacy, security breaches, discrimination, and opacity are some of the greatest challenges of our era.
However, it’s clear that the future of the data economy is in the hands of artificial intelligence, edge computing, and blockchain technology, among others. But the responsibility of ensuring the ethical and responsible use of data lies with governments, regulators, and businesses alike.
With proper data protection regulations, cybersecurity measures, and ethical considerations, we can ensure that the data gold rush remains a sustainable and equitable opportunity for everyone, which will further enhance humanity, and bring a better future.
