How To Use ChatGPT and AI on My SmartPhone

Updated: May 27

For the past couple of years, artificial Intelligence (AI) is the most talked about technology. I know I've given numerous talks (including my TEDx) on AI and if you take away anything from AI, understand it's not going anywhere. If you're looking to incorporate AI into your daily personal or professional life, one of the first things you should do is to start using AI on your smartphone. If you're looking to find out how to use generative AI tools and get better at AI, follow these simple tips that will allow you to use AI on the go.

You probably didn't know this, but you already are using AI on your smartphone. Virtual assistants like Siri and Google Assistant are using various forms of AI. They currently aren't as complex as ChatGPT, but they can give you basic information. You probably didn't know this, but AI is enhancing your smartphone's camera while you're taking those photos and selfies. AI makes adjustments for your camera recognizing human faces, and landscapes. AI also helps your smartphone camera by adjusting the exposure, color balance, and contrast. It also comes into play for recognizing objects that your camera is looking at, such as QR codes. Finally, AI comes into play when optimizing the battery life of your smartphone as well as voice recognition and biometric protection such as finger print scan and facial recognition.

If you want to put AI into your hands and go beyond the virtual assistants on your phone. Generative AI Chatbots are the way to go. I know a lot of you are afraid of AI, but rather than thinking of it as baby Terminator, think of these tools as Google on steroids. Get used to AI and start using it on your phone as an alternative to search engines. One of the best

analogys I’ve heard about AI chatbots compares the process to going to a library. When you use traditional search engines like Google, it's like asking the librarian for a specific piece of information and being told which books may contain the information you're looking and where to find those books. When you use a chatbot, it will attempt to provide the specific information directly as if the librarian went to the shelf, picked out a book, and found the exact page where the information you're looking for is.

If you're looking for chatbots for your smartphone consider the following apps:

OpenAI’s ChatGPT: Chat GPT is considered the most advanced chatbot allowing you to find answers and solve problems to just about anything. For the free 3.5 version, the information in the database is only current to January 2022. If you need to access current data, you can pay $20 a month for version 4.0. They make an app for both Apple and Android devices. You can download the app from the Apple App Store or the Google Play Store.

Google Gemini: Google has its own chatbot you can download to your smartphones. Like ChatGPT, Gemini will allow you to find solutions to any problem you need solved. It's database of information comes from Google. Downloading the app gets tricky as Google only has a Gemini app for Android devices which you can get from the Google Play Store. If you want to use Gemini for your Apple iOS device, you need to download the 'Google' app to your phone. To access Gemini, go to the top of the app and hit the 'search' toggle and it will change to Gemini.

Microsoft Co-Pilot: Microsoft was an investor in OpenAI which allows them to incorporate GPT4 into their app. There are some limitations with Co-Pilot, but it's warm and fuzzy interface makes using the chatbot fun.

Hopefully, this will help you download chatbot apps to your smartphone to get more familiar with AI which will take your personal or professional life to the next level. If you have any questions, please reach out. I'm always available.
