You need to start using ChatGPT. Sure, it can be unreliable and make mistakes. Sure, it doesn’t know anything beyond a specific date, but it makes you faster and can quickly add new dimensions to your data.

I’ve talked about how, if you are a Data Practitioner, how to use ChatGPT here, and if you’re looking to enhance your narratives, what other GenerativeAI tools to use.

But those articles are just hypothetical. A real-world example would be augmenting the tweets that you read so that you can use the information later. I like Midjourney to create images, and I’m always looking for new concepts, so when I came across a list of tokens from Tatiana Tsiguleva, I had to save it.

Copying and pasting it into my Roam Research PKM resulted in a list that wasn’t helpful for finding the information later. I could write a Python class to convert it:

But I didn’t need to repeat the grouping; I just wanted to group the list by “styles” and “everything else.”

So I asked ChatGPT to do it:
