ChatGPT Frees Up Time for Users, but Doesn’t Come Without Risk
The robots are taking over. Well, it seems that way sometimes.
ChatGPT stands for Chat Generative Pre-Trained transformer. Much like your Alexa at home that you ask about the weather, recipe ingredients and can play a song quiz on, you simply ask ChatGPT a query and it will respond with an answer and much greater detail.
In July, ResumeBuilder.com surveyed 750 full-time employees who use ChatGPT on a weekly basis to find out how the tool improves their efficiency.
Among the findings:
- 32% of full-time workers use ChatGPT on a weekly basis.
- 1 in 4 said the tool saves them more than 10 hours per week.
- 30% said the time savings allowed them to start a second job or side hustle.
- 78% said it has helped them improve work-life balance.
Resume Builder says 1 in 3 workers use ChatGPT weekly, with its most common tasks being summarizing documents, writing emails, creating content, brainstorming, translating text, coding and hiring.
Still torn on ChatGPT? The survey also found that ChatGPT users noted an improved work-life balance, improved menta health, increased their productivity on the job and gave them more time to do the things they enjoy.
One concern users should be aware of, according to TechCrunch.com, is that hackers are using it to spread malware on Facebook. A May meta report said malware posing as ChatGPT was on the rise platform-wide.
Another is that it can write phishing emails without typos. A tell-tale sign of a scam in your email is usually those miswritten words, but OpenGPT makes the task easier.
As with anything, knowledge is power. Know the facts before you dive in the ChatGTP pool.
