How I Would Have Used ChatGPT as a Student

In the world of technology, there are two schools of thought: utopians and dystopians. Utopians believe that technology can solve many of the world's problems, while dystopians fear that technology will lead to a future where humanity is enslaved by machines or algorithms. The application of ChatGPT can be seen through both lenses. Personally, I view it as a tool that has the potential to create a utopian future, by helping to solve problems and improve our lives.

Layman's introduction to ChatGPT

It's like having a super-smart robot friend who can talk to you like a real person. But unlike your human friends, ChatGPT won't judge you for asking silly questions or forgetting things.

In this article, I will discuss how I would have utilized ChatGPT if I were still in college.

Use ChatGPT as a study tool

ChatGPT can be used as a study tool by asking questions, researching topics, getting explanations, asking for examples, summarizing texts etc. We can use it as more complex source of information than google.

Here I have asked ChatGPT to solve a handshake problem.

It has used a formula to give the answer. Say we are not satisfied with just the formula and we would like to know more about it. For that we can ask the ChatGPT to explain the formula.

Quote: Use it as more complex source of information than google

But what if we want to prove the formula?

We can ask further question like:

Why did you use induction to prove the formula?

Are there any other ways than induction?

ChatGPT can give wrong answer confidently. It should be used in conjunction with other study methods and not relied upon solely for learning. From ChatGPT itself “It is always important to verify information from multiple sources and to critically evaluate the accuracy and reliability of any information before using it.”

Use it for Hackathons

Many times student do not participate in hackathons because they do not have an idea to build a product on. ChatGPT can be used for hackathons to generate ideas, conduct research, and even create code. It can be a valuable tool for brainstorming sessions, helping participants think outside the box and come up with creative solutions. 

Quote: ChatGPT can also be used to generate ideas for your minor/major projects

Use ChatGPT to ask questions about your career

ChatGPT can answer any question we have about our career. Use ChatGPT as free career counselor.

Use ChatGPT to write cover letters

Use ChatGPT to improve my soft skills

We can use ChatGPT to improve our communication skills, summarize thoughts, learn about leadership, teamwork. By interacting with ChatGPT on a regular basis, students can enhance their language proficiency, critical thinking, problem-solving abilities, and decision-making skills. Additionally, ChatGPT can provide personalized recommendations for students based on their interests and goals, which can help them become more self-aware and focused on their learning objectives.
