Yes, I am saying my chat WITH it as I had a very interesting chat about the trucking business. I have a lot to think about relative to chatGPT and one thing is for sure. This is real and I can already think of many use cases for this tool. So, if you are not using it, you may want to think about it. A couple of observations from my conversation below:
- Think of this as another version of a search tool but rather than giving me a list of websites to go to, this actually answers questions for me in conversational English.
- Notice my somewhat random follow on questions. I asked about trucking, then a follow up question on drivers, then e-commerce and then the impact on climate. The responses were perfect and very conversational.
- It is not just a screen scrape of another website as it brought disparate information together.
Here is my recent conversation with my new friend:
Me: Is trucking a viable business?
ChatGPT: Trucking can be a viable business, as it is an essential industry for the transportation of goods and materials. However, like any business, it can have its own set of challenges and obstacles to overcome, such as competition, regulation, and fluctuating demand. Additionally, the industry is currently facing a shortage of drivers, which can make it more difficult for trucking businesses to operate efficiently. It is important for those interested in starting a trucking business to conduct thorough research and have a well-crafted business plan in place to increase their chances of success.
Me: Why are they short drivers (I did not use a question mark so apparently punctuation is dead).
ChatGPT: The trucking industry is currently facing a shortage of drivers for a few reasons. One reason is that the job can be physically and mentally demanding, which can deter some people from pursuing it as a career. Additionally, the lifestyle of a truck driver, which often involves long periods of time away from home, can be unappealing to some.
