AI: Experiencing Explosive Growth

AI Bot

AI isn't anything new, but its recent explosive growth is astounding, especially since the release of OpenAI's ChatGPT.

ChatGPT experienced massive sign-ups within the first five days after opening it up to the public at large, making logging into ChatGPT a miserable fail. I tried for days on end to log in. I pretty much gave up. Thank goodness I had alternatives such as Jasper and QuickWrite at the time.

Our AI Writing Tools page features today's top AI aids - and we're not talking Artificial Insemination here. Nope.

Artificial Intelligence is moving at the speed of light and brings with it tremendous excitement and trepidation. Sadly, many people are fearful of AI; they think they'll soon be out of a job. But, as with all new technology, it's how you use it that matters.

We suggest reading the SEO-Related page as it all ties in - AI-wise.

Psst. Want to know a secret? Solo-Build-It! (my preferred website host and builder), has added their own AI tool called "Tai" to their already legendary website-building platform.

Their addition of Tai is a tremendous boon for bloggers and Tai is now available for WordPress users (or any other website platform) too as a standalone option!

Read my Solo-Build-It! Review.

Plagiarism and Paraphrasing...

The AI Writing Tools page covers AI apps, plagiarism checkers, AI detectors, and paraphrasing tools, too. These excellent self-publishing tools for authors are must-haves.

When using AI to assist you, be mindful that you must make sure the content your AI tool brings back isn't going to get you into trouble plagiarism-wise. After all, ChatGPT etc. brought back its content "from somewhere." It didn't come out of thin air.

Changing one word here and there won't pass the AI detection test. You must add your personality and style to that AI-generated content. You've also got to fact-check the content because what you currently get back is not up-to-date. (Most AI models have data up to September 2021).

"Tai" to the Rescue: AI Prompting Help is Here

"Tai" - four areas of the app

I've been using a variety of AI apps for over a year now (and other self-publishing tools for authors) and after the initial fun wears off, you realize there's a problem.

The problem lies in NOT KNOWING what exactly to ask in a prompt. Your AI assistant needs proper direction. It's so frustrating. There's nothing worse than a puny prompt that brings back lackluster content. I was certainly falling short in that department.

I now have major help with "Tai" - the AI app extraordinaire - and I was fortunate to be a Tai beta tester.
