🗣 Have a Conversation With AI
You might not believe this. Plus, highlights from this week.
This is The Level Ups. Modern business news for the future business leader (in plain-Jane English).
A new chat AI is about to take over.
What this means for all of us.
Recap of the week.
Let’s get into it.
Estimated reading time: 2 minutes & 30 seconds.
Have A Full Conversation With AI
Sam Altman of Open AI just announced ChatGPT. You can talk to it here: chat.openai.com - you have to try it!
Example. I asked, “how can I level up?” Because that’s the name of this newsletter.
I got this answer in 2 seconds.
It’s amazing. To give you an idea of how far it’s come, this AI can recognize when you’re making jokes and replies with “haha…” before answering back.
It can also create piano pieces in the style of Mozart:

All the best examples of ChatGPT, from OpenAI:

Open AI added restrictions, but users have already gotten around them. One rule was that it couldn’t browse the internet. Already solved. The internet is incredible.
Seeing people trick ChatGPT into getting around the restrictions OpenAI placed on usage is like watching an Asimov novel come to life.

It’s Amazing, But What’s Next?
I may start looking for ways to add another income stream because writers worldwide should be terrified.
This isn’t all doom a gloom, it’s a world of opportunity, but I can understand why it might make you feel nervous.
You can use this to your advantage. Don’t be afraid of it. Don’t run from it. Focus on how it can help you achieve success. Expect everyone to use it (but not everyone to talk about it).
It’s a secret weapon (for now), and some won’t want to share it.
You can decide for yourself what you’ll do with it.
Highlights From The Week:
Legendary CEO Bob Iger returned to his post.
Disney stock is down, Chapek is out (along with their head of Media), and The Board (that really dropped the ball) is tapping Iger on the shoulder and asking him to fix it.
Shares rose 10% after the announcement. Time will tell how well he does.
Black Friday Sales Hit $9.1B
But what’s most interesting is that Buy Now, Pay Later was up nearly 80%. Aren’t we in a recession?
It looks like things will get worse before they get better. Interest rates are taken up to encourage people to save, but it seems like the exact opposite. This was a record Black Friday.
Remember: don’t spend money you don’t have.
RBC Buys HSBC Canada:
The price? $13.5B in cash (an extremely high amount). Respect to JP Morgan for leading a historic deal.
The deal still has to go through regulations, so nothing’s final until next year. Wait for RBC’s next moves.
Mark Zuckerberg Deep Fake Is Too Good:
Zuckerberg and American lawmakers (and the FBI) have been at odds for years. This advocacy group took it to the next level by having the Monopoly Man transform into Zuckerberg and deliver a message.
The “fake Zuck” thanked lawmakers for not doing anything about monopolies because they’re so good for businesses like this (along with Google and others).
Will the laws change? Time will tell.
