AI has become an indispensable tool in today’s business landscape, revolutionizing how we analyze data, predict trends, and make informed decisions. Within the realm of AI, ChatGPT is gaining significant traction for its language modeling capabilities. In a recent episode of the “Everyday AI” podcast, the conversation centered around the importance of giving ChatGPT internet access and its immense potential to enhance decision-making processes. In this article, we delve deeper into how business owners and decision-makers can harness this technology to unlock new levels of efficiency and productivity.

The Era of ChatGPT:

ChatGPT, a powerful language model developed by OpenAI, has rapidly become a go-to resource for individuals, including students, professionals, and entrepreneurs. However, as emphasized in the podcast, relying solely on ChatGPT without internet access can often result in inaccurate responses, leaving users dissatisfied with the output. The episode shed light on the significance of connecting ChatGPT to the internet and utilizing its access to a vast network of knowledge.

Enhancing Decision-Making Processes:

One of the most compelling arguments made in the podcast is the ability of ChatGPT, when connected to the internet, to provide valuable insights and information while generating content. By enabling ChatGPT to browse the internet in real-time, business owners and decision-makers can leverage its vast capabilities to extract relevant data from multiple sources. This allows for stronger, better-informed decision-making processes, ultimately driving business growth and success.

The Power of Internet-Connected Plugins:

The episode delved into the importance of using internet-connected plugins with ChatGPT to enhance its functionalities. Several plugins, such as Browser op, Vox Script, and YouTube summaries, were highlighted as effective additions to the ChatGPT ecosystem. These plugins enable ChatGPT to access and summarize information from specific websites, aiding in research, analysis, and content creation. The episode highlighted that with the right plugins, ChatGPT becomes a comprehensive tool for gathering, summarizing, and interpreting information.

Staying Ahead of the Curve:

As the AI landscape continues to evolve, businesses are faced with the challenge of staying ahead of the curve. The episode introduces the concept of AI regulation and its potential impact on companies embracing AI technology. While it remains to be seen how regulations will unfold, it is imperative for business owners and decision-makers to stay informed and adapt to potential changes. Being proactive allows organizations to reap the benefits of AI while ensuring compliance and ethical usage.


ChatGPT, with its internet-connected capabilities, has emerged as a game-changer for business owners and decision-makers seeking to enhance their decision-making processes. The insights shared in the “Everyday AI” podcast underscore the immense power of this technology and the need to leverage it effectively through internet-connected plugins. As we navigate the AI landscape, business leaders must embrace the evolving norms and regulations surrounding AI to stay competitive and harness the true potential of AI-assisted decision-making. By doing so, they can ensure maximum productivity, efficiency, and growth for their organizations in the era of AI.

Podcast Transcript

Jordan Wilson [00:00:17]:

You’re not using ChatGPT correctly.  I don’t even know how you use it, but I’m just going to go ahead and make that claim. And no one out there teaching or sharing about ChatGPT is using it correctly either. So, luckily, you tuned in today because I’m going to show you why and how you need to give ChatGPT access to the Internet.

All right, well, thanks for joining, everyone. My name is Jordan Wilson. I’m the host of Everyday AI. Whether it’s your first time or your 101st time joining us. Thank you. Here’s. What? Everyday AI is we do this every single morning. We go live on LinkedIn and other social media at 07:30, a.m. Central Standard Time to bring people together. I think we have the largest group of AI enthusiasts learning together every single weekday morning, 07:30 a.m. Central Standard Time. And we’re going to learn about AI and how we can actually leverage it. All right, so get your questions in now. If you are joining us live, it’s just me and you today. Most days we bring on expert guests and everyday people who are using AI in fantastic ways. But today, it’s just you and me. So let’s have a conversation. If you are joining us on the podcast, make sure to check in your show notes and we have them on LinkedIn.

Daily AI News

Jordan Wilson [00:01:40]:

If you’re here on LinkedIn, look in those notes right now, because I think you should also go check out that 100th episode that we have. It was amazing. We highlighted some of the best shows that we’ve had over the course of 100 episodes of Everyday AI. But enough about that. Let’s first get into the AI news. This is something we do every day as well.

Jordan Wilson [00:02:14]:

All right, so big topics in AI news. So OpenAI has moved to Europe. Well, not actually. They’ve just opened another office there, but they did officially open up that Europe office in Dublin with nine job openings, but it’s growing by the hour. It was, I think, five when I first checked it’s up to nine. But it should be. You know, the ChatGPT parent company has operated in the US for the most part, but they just opened and moved into their Europe office, according to reports. It should be interesting, though, because the European Union’s AI Act could potentially impose violations for much of the work that they’re even doing there. So it’s going to be extremely interesting to keep an eye on that. And that’s even why I bring it up, just because the EU does have the AI Act and there’s a lot of gray areas with large language models and ChatGPT in particular.

Jordan Wilson [00:03:04]:

All right, next big piece of news tech’s biggest names met with the US Senate yesterday to work on AI regulations. So the big names and who’s who’s of essentially the richest men in the world, Mark Zuckerberg, Bill Gates, Elon Musk, and others met in a closed-door session with US. Senators. Reportedly more than 60 us. Senators showed up out of 100. So what’s up other 40? Why did you not show up? That’s what I want to know. But both US senators and big tech reps called for just more federal involvement. So even specifically, Elon Musk called for a federal department of AI and according to reports, called AI development as potentially harmful to humans everywhere in quotes, right, no big deal.

Jordan Wilson [00:03:52]:

Also, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer reported that all attendees so US senators and tech dignitaries, they all raised their hands when asked if government needs to play a role in regulating AI. So nothing really happened. I’ll just say it like it is and it’s my hot take on the show. If you’ve joined me before, I don’t think any meaningful regulation is going to come from the US when it comes to generative AI, just mainly because it is in large parts powering the US economy. Speaking of the US economy, last but not least, consulting firms are going all in on AI. So EY just announced and they are one of the largest consulting firms in the world, they just announced a $1.4 billion investment into AI and they’re also creating their own platform and large language model EY, AI EYQ, that is a mouthful and a half. But EY is not the first, nor will they be the last large consulting company going all in on AI. Other big names in the space have already made their splash and will probably continue to do so.

Jordan Wilson [00:05:03]:

So as an example, KPMG had a $2 billion investment pricewater, cooper billion dollar investment, deloitte 1.4, accenture 3 billion. So a lot going on in that world. But what’s going on right now is you all are joining me live. And y’all, did did anyone in the room tune in yesterday for our hundredth show? I’m just curious because I had a slight miracle happen in our 100th show that I’d like to talk about. So thanks everyone for joining us. Michael Forgy just joined us on the show, actually as a guest. He said, as stated in my episode with Jordan, I am not a plugins master. He wants to learn from the so thanks, thanks for joining us, Michael.

Jordan Wilson [00:05:55]:

And all right, who else do we got here? Joining us live. So Brian saying good morning. Two brian saying good morning. Look at this, harold. Good morning, Rodrigue. Good morning, Peter. Thank you for joining us. Jackie said yes to the hundredth episode.

Jordan Wilson [00:06:11]:

Thanks, Jackie. All right, here’s my miracle. Y’all, just a real quick story, but don’t worry, it’s kind of ChatGPT related. So after 100 episodes, my wife finally said, I think I’m going to take the PPP course. We had a couple of people shouted out our free prime prompt polish and finally it was a miracle. She’s going to take the course, right? Yay. So, hey, if you’ve also listened to 100 episodes and you’re finally like, man, I should probably take that free prime prompt polish course where we teach people our method of using large language models, specifically ChatGPT. Just type in PPP in the comments.

Jordan Wilson [00:06:55]:

We actually have one course today and tomorrow. It’s all free, no upsells. But that isn’t what you came here you didn’t come here for my random stories, I don’t think. You probably came to learn a little bit about ChatGPT and Internet access. Right? Harvey said, great 100th episode. Thank you, Harvey. Mike, thank you for joining the show. Mike saying hanging with smart people makes you smarter.

Jordan Wilson [00:07:27]:

Absolutely. All right, let’s talk a little bit about how you give ChatGPT, Internet access and even why, all right? And as a reminder, before we dive in, this isn’t just a live stream, this isn’t just a podcast. We also have our free daily newsletter and our course. So make sure you go to your Everyday.com, that’s youreverydayai.com it’s in the show notes and sign up for that daily newsletter. We spend a ton of time on it. I think it’s tremendous value. And if I’m being honest, yeah, there’s dozens of other AI newsletters out there, but most of them are geared toward highly technical people. Everyday AI in our newsletter is geared toward everyday professionals.

Misuse of ChatGPT technology is widespread

Jordan Wilson [00:08:17]:

All right? So let me start with this. Almost everyone is using ChatGPT incorrectly, all right? I’d hate to break it to you, so that person you follow on Twitter, that other podcast you listen to, they’re almost all using ChatGPT incorrectly. All right? And first, very brief background. I never claimed to be an AI expert, a ChatGPT expert, large language model. I’m not. But I have been using the GPT technology since, I think the week it came out commercially, right? Which was late 2020. So the GPT, I think it was GPT-3 at the time, was available in a lot of different commercially available tools to the public. So myself and my team, we’ve been using the GPT tech essentially since it came out, almost three years now.

Jordan Wilson [00:09:10]:

And I’ll tell you this, and you guys might be shocked to hear this, how much I talk about ChatGPT now, and I don’t think I’ve ever told anyone this, maybe I have, but when ChatGPT first came out in November 2022, I used it right away. I signed up. Obviously, I was not impressed. I’ll say it, I used it, tried to find utility for it, really put it through its paces. And I’d hate to say this out loud, but it just wasn’t that great. Sorry. Not sorry. Mainly because there was other tools using their technology that had been trained on millions of user inquiries or millions of users of Queries before that point.

Web browsing and ChatGPT

Jordan Wilson [00:10:01]:

And their models were better and they were more flexible, right? So it really wasn’t until that ChatGPT unveiled web browsing access that I said, yep, I’m going to go back and dive into ChatGPT. And probably since that point, and especially since plugins, I use ChatGPT usually the first thing in the morning before I even get my cup of coffee, that you sometimes see or hear me sipping. Apologies if you hear weird sipping sounds in the mic, it helps me talk better. Y’all, the first thing I do is use Chachi BT in the morning, all right? And I use it throughout the day. Some days I’m using it six to 10 hours, all right, if that tells you anything. So how did I go from being very not impressed with ChatGPT to using it almost exclusively? I don’t Google as much, I don’t do traditional search as much, I don’t use Word docs as much. I’ve used at least 70 to 80 different GPT or AI writing tools. Why do I spend so much time in ChatGPT then? And why is everyone else using ChatGPT incorrectly? Mainly, it’s because of plugins, okay? So we talked about web browsing, and that was a mode that was available in ChatGPT before and it went away.

Jordan Wilson [00:11:34]:

Did any of you all joining live use the web browsing mode from ChatGPT? I’m curious how many people use what mode, but if you’re brand new to ChatGPT, let me explain it. There’s a free version and a paid version, right? So I think I have a little slide here, maybe I don’t, but there’s a free version and a paid version. So GPT 3.5, and the paid version is GPT four, okay? And then even within GPT four, which is just a much more powerful version trained on 1.8 trillion parameters. So 1.8 trillion connections in its big neural network brain. So even within GPT four, there’s different modes. There’s the default mode, there is the now, or what used to be called code interpreter, which is now, I believe, called advanced data analysis. Not a great name. Ada, I think is what people call it now.

Jordan Wilson [00:12:29]:

And then there’s plugins, but there used to be web browsing, right? But they took it away. They took it know, Douglas, thanks for joining us. He said, I use web browsing and then flipped to the web pilot plugin. Yeah, they took it away. And here’s why. I know that almost everyone out there who’s trying to teach ChatGPT and they’re saying, Buy my course, use my prompts. They’re just trying to get you on an email list to sell you something. Look at their screenshots.

Jordan Wilson [00:13:04]:

I did this the other day. I was curious. It’s funny when people literally refer to themselves as ChatGPT experts, specifically ChatGPT experts. So I looked at some people in my LinkedIn community who call themselves ChatGPT experts, and there was dozens. Dozens. And I looked at what they’re sharing, all their little prompts and screenshots, and none of them, none of them are using ChatGPT correctly. Because you shouldn’t just copy and paste prompts, number one. Number two, you should always be ready.

Jordan Wilson [00:13:39]:

Here’s a nugget. Write this down if anyone still uses pencils or pens, I’m going to see what I got here, all right? I got a pencil. Always. You should always be using an internet connected plugin in your chat. Don’t use the default mode. There’s no reason for me, I don’t use advanced data analysis, I really don’t. Because there’s plenty of plugins that can do the basics of data analysis when you start a new chat, anytime you’re using ChatGPT, whether you’re a novice user or a pro user, okay? You should be using GPT Four with plugins and having an internet connected plugin. Always.

Jordan Wilson [00:14:25]:

And I’m going to show you here live why? Okay, but always, always and everyone teaching ChatGPT, go look at their prompts. People share screenshots. They’re not using it. People are using the default mode. It’s a rookie mistake. That’s the way that you can immediately tell if someone knows what they’re talking about or not by seeing what plugins they’re using in their chats. Look at their screenshots. I’ve watched people’s YouTube videos.

Why ChatGPT needs Internet access

Jordan Wilson [00:14:54]:

It’s hilarious. And again, let me go back to when I first started to use ChatGPT. Why? I wasn’t impressed. It’s for the same reason that people trying to teach ChatGPT that don’t have Internet access enabled are failing us. September 2021. That is the cutoff date for GPT Four and GPT 35. So essentially, GPT Four is a large language model, all right? And that’s why ChatGPT needs Internet access, because it has no clue what’s been going on in the world. It has no clue.

Jordan Wilson [00:15:33]:

It’s two years, right? Imagine relying on ChatGPT for anything, because all industries change, even US history changes, right? You have to give ChatGPT access to the Internet or you are going to run into hallucinations and just a bunch of hot garbage output. And consumers, we are getting so numb to this bad output. Right? So right there, I just said recent memory cuts, you have to connect to the internet. All right? So let me go over and I’m a dork. Like, I think three weeks ago, I tested at the time, there was, I think, 19 or 20 different internet connected or internet enabled chat GPD plugins. I need to update my list because I know that there’s a lot more than that by now. And you’re going to see, I’m going to show you all at the end, I hear from you guys, I always get feedback and people say, hey, Jordan, we like when you show us something live. So I’m going to get to that, don’t worry.

Main functions of an internet-connected ChatGPT plugin

Jordan Wilson [00:16:38]:

But first, I need to go on my mini rants. Y’all know, I do this. Okay, so the main functions again, get your pens and pencils out. These are the main functions or different functions of an Internet connected ChatGPT plugin. Again, there is no Internet browsing mode anymore, and there’s plugins, but they’re all created differently and they all have different functions and features, and a lot of times, not even the plugin maker tells you, right? They just say, hey, you can access the web with this. Okay? So here’s the four different categories. Write this down. Reading links or accessing links.

Jordan Wilson [00:17:25]:

Querying the web, reading PDFs and YouTube summaries. All right? If you’re listening to me in the car, which shout out to y’all, by the way, I got so many messages yesterday after the hundredth episode, everyone saying, oh, I listen to you in the car, don’t worry, don’t crash, don’t text those to yourself. We’ll put them in the show notes, we’ll put them in the newsletter. Okay? So number one, read links. Number two, query the web. Number three. Read PDFs. Number four, YouTube summaries.

Jordan Wilson [00:17:57]:

Here’s the downside. There is no one plugin that does all four, but there’s many different internet connected plugins that do three of four. All right? This is why, y’all, if anyone ever tells you, oh yeah, I’ll teach you ChatGPT or hey, buy my course, buy my prompts, whatever, ask them that question. Say, what do you think are the things that an Internet connected ChatGPT plugin needs if they can’t list at least three of those four? That person has no clue what they’re talking about. Because this is the most powerful, the most powerful part of ChatGPT, and I can’t stress this enough, is using Internet connected plugins, period. And this is why ChatGPT is in a whole nother league versus Cloud from Anthropic versus Google Bard versus Microsoft Bing chat. Guess what? They say Bard and Bingchat are connected to the Internet. But they’re not.

Jordan Wilson [00:18:58]:

They’re not. They query the Internet and they don’t tell you that. Don’t worry, I’m going to share, all right? Peter says this, peter says, I will make that one plugin that fits all four for you. Thank you, Peter. Hey, if you can do that, if you can do that, we will send it out to our thousands of listeners. So, yeah, let’s do that together. Should we get our first everyday AI based plugin? That would be awesome. Ben asking, any reason why one plugin can’t do all of those things? Ben, I’m sure that there’s a technical reason behind it that is above my knowledge base.

Jordan Wilson [00:19:40]:

Again, I’m not an expert. I can do a little coding, I can do web design and development, I can make a Chrome extension. I haven’t made a plugin yet. I could figure it out. But Ben, I don’t know. I’m sure someone in the comments that’s smarter than me can tell us that. So let’s go ahead and look live. All right, I made you all wait long enough.

Live example of ChatGPT

Jordan Wilson [00:20:07]:

Here we go. All right, so if you are listening on the podcast. I’m going to do my best to explain this to you. So right now, I am in Chat. GPT 35. Okay. So I’m going to explain this to you. And here’s the thing.

Jordan Wilson [00:20:28]:

This is how most people use ChatGPT, which is terrible, okay? So I’m saying please write an outline and an overview on why the US government may need to regulate artificial intelligence, right? So I talked about this on the top of the show a little bit, right? So here especially students, again, students, I’m not encouraging you to use ChatGPT to write your papers, but every single student is using ChatGPT to write their papers and almost all of them are using GPT-3. So I know we probably have a couple of teachers in the house, so you’re probably used to seeing a bunch of just dull content like this. So, yes, ChatGPT gave me an outline and an overview, but it’s bland, right? It says definition of artificial intelligence, b, importance of AI in contemporary society. C, need for government regulation. Right? So it’s a lot of just general kind of just garbage, not that great, right? So here’s an introduction paragraph, ethical concerns, economic considerations. This is what, the overwhelming majority of people will just use this, or they’ll run that exact same query in GPT four, which is just going to give you slightly better hot garbage results. It’s going to give you medium garbage results. Okay? And why? Well, believe it or not, there’s been a lot that’s been going on in the AI and governance world since September 2021.

Jordan Wilson [00:22:03]:

Who would have thought? Who would have thought? That’s why you get a lot of times, just a lot of words saying nothing like what you see on the screen here, or sometimes hallucinations, it’s because you’re not connecting ChatGPT to the Internet. Y’all are doing it wrong, right? All right, so let’s go ahead. We’re going to run a couple of tests here, all right? So we’re going to go now. I have another window open. We’re going to run the same thing with plugins enabled. Don’t worry, this is a two part because I want to show you the difference. I want you guys to learn, all right? That’s what we’re here for, all right? So I did the exact same, the exact same prompt with internet enabled plugins. So some of my favorites, I know you guys want to know, browser op, Vox Script and YouTube summaries, all right? The two internet based ones, browser op and Vox script, they can get three or four each, but between the two of them, they cover all four.

Jordan Wilson [00:23:10]:

So you’ll see here, even with plugins, it’s not great. It’s just a slightly better version of the GPT-3. And you’re probably saying, oh, see, Jordan Chad GPT is not that good. Well, again, you have to not only enable plugins, but a lot of times in your prompt or in your back and forth conversation, because that’s what we teach in our PPP course, prime prompt polish. You need to train an expert chat. I’m just showing you guys. Quick off the cuff, guys, but in a prompt. Let’s run this again.

Jordan Wilson [00:23:52]:

Okay, so we’ll give it some time, and then I’ll tell you what I’m asking. I’m running the same prompt. And then I said, please, oh, I didn’t get the whole thing, so sorry. Let me redo this. And hopefully I didn’t time this out. All right, let’s try that one more time. I missed the first line, so we would have not gotten a great response. Okay, so now I’m writing, please write an outline.

Jordan Wilson [00:24:18]:

So the same first half. Please write an outline and an overview of why the US government may need to regulate artificial intelligence. So when I did that the first time, when I did that the first time, I still got a kind of a garbage answer. But here’s what I did differently. In the next prompt, here’s what I said. Please query the Internet using plugins to search for recent 2023 trends in AI and government regulations, specifically in the US. All right? Specific command. I said query the Internet using plugins.

Jordan Wilson [00:24:52]:

All right? Then I said, after you are done querying, please also visit these links to understand the latest developments. And then I gave it just two different links because I wanted it to go fast. The great thing about browser op is you can usually throw in 1012 links and it’ll take its time and go through all these. Now, you’ll see, I get a much better result. And here’s why. On my screen now, you can see in your response with ChatGPT when it’s using a plugin. And I can click here and it says used browser op. So it used the browser op plugin, and I can see here exactly what it did.

Jordan Wilson [00:25:33]:

Right? And now, when I run that query, I’m actually getting a great overview. Right? Now, this overview that’s on my screen is up to date. It is very unlikely to have hallucinations. It is actually something I can use. Right. And again, I would go back and forth with this. This is just to show you live. All right? So do you all understand now why you need the Internet with ChatGPT? Even if you’re using GPT four, and even if you have plugins enabled, you need to make sure that you are being overly communicated, overly communicative.

Jordan Wilson [00:26:20]:

That’s a hard one to get out with ChatGPT in telling it exactly what to do and what you need. Okay? And you need to make sure, not just that ChatGPT has access to the Internet, but it’s actually using it and it’s actually retaining that information. Right? Yeah, Peter, like what Peter said, very unlikely. Yes. Great call out here. Doug Douglas joining us on LinkedIn. Thanks, Douglas. He said the easiest thing to do is ask ChatGPT what the plugin can do it’s.

Jordan Wilson [00:26:57]:

Fantastic. Here’s the thing, Douglas, I’m a dork. I did this with all different 19 Internet connected plugins. And sometimes even the plugin developer hasn’t tested all these functions. I found that out. But yes, in 90% of the cases, even whenever I use a new plugin, and even if I have a pretty good idea of what it can do, I always ask, so enable the plugin, and also enable an Internet connected plugin as well and say, what does this plugin do? Yes, like what Ahmed said. Great hint. Ahmed, thank you for joining us.

Bing Chat, Google Bard, and Claude don’t have internet access

Jordan Wilson [00:27:31]:

I think you said you’ve watched or listened to all 100 episodes. That’s amazing. That’s amazing. Thank you. Thank you all for your support on that. All right, so let me very quickly, this isn’t going to be an hour long like yesterday, right? We’re nearing the end, but I’m going to go ahead and share. I’m going to go ahead and share because people think, oh, Jordan, Google Bart’s connected to the Internet, kind of. Okay, so I ran that exact same prompt with the links and to say, query the Internet and all of that, I ran it in Bard cloud Anthropic or cloud Two from Anthropic and Bing Chat, right? I should have also ran this in Perplexity, because with Perplexity, I think we would have gotten it mostly, right? But anyways, here is the output from Google Bard sharing it on my screen, but essentially it’s saying, sure, here’s an outline and overview of why the US government may need to regulate artificial intelligence in 2023.

Jordan Wilson [00:28:39]:

So you might think right away, oh, okay, Jordan, it did everything you asked it to. But here’s the downside. Here’s the downside, and it didn’t do it. Sometimes Google will share at the bottom. I’ve run plenty of tests on reading links in other large language models, right? And I’ve also done dedicated episodes and dedicated AI in five videos on this. So what Google Bard and Microsoft Bingchat usually do is if you give it a link, sometimes it will actually read that link. But here’s actually what it does. It queries the Internet.

Jordan Wilson [00:29:32]:

Okay? So it actually comes down to semantics and SEO. So when you share a URL with Google Bard or Microsoft Bingchat and you say, hey, read this article or summarize this article, all it’s going to do, it’s going to look in the keywords of that URL and it is going to query the Internet. Okay? So sometimes it will find and read back that URL. Most of the time it will not. It will just find a related article. And that’s where hallucinations can come into play. Because if you’re looking for something extremely specific, that is in maybe that one article only. As an example, what I did with this when we did, I think, an AI in five, which we share in the newsletter every day, is I did one of the everyday AI episodes, right? And ChatGPT was the only one that got it right, because for all other ones, it just queried the keywords in the URL, right? So right here, you’ll see, Bart at least gave me some accurate and up to date information, but it didn’t pull out the specifics that I gave it in those two articles.

Jordan Wilson [00:30:45]:

All right, let’s look at Cloud. People love Cloud. I don’t. I barely use it. It’s not helpful for me. Yes, Cloud Two has a much larger memory. 100,000 tokens, you can upload files right in the interface. Doesn’t do anything for me.

Jordan Wilson [00:31:07]:

If you’re not using a large language model with direct access to the URL that you want it to use, you’re not using large language models correctly. I don’t care. US as humans, one of the things that we have to do most often, if you have a desk job, is to read very specific things on the internet, right? So why is no one using ChatGPT correctly to do that? Because it is the only tool that can consistently do that and also give you the full features and functionalities of a large language model, period. Period. It is the only one. If you say, hey, here’s ten URLs that I need you to read and summarize, ChatGPT is the only one, that’s where you get out the pencils. Are you all writing this down? Sorry, I think I still have some hot takes left over from yesterday. I am making all of you right now into the top 1% of people using large language models.

Jordan Wilson [00:32:16]:

Probably even higher than that. Probably the top .5%. Just by knowing that and using it correctly, that’s why people are like, jordan doesn’t know what he’s talking about. He barely uses Cloud. Cloud Two. That’s why it’s not useful for everyday business applications, period. Oh, Jordan, bart is great. Yeah, it’s great.

Jordan Wilson [00:32:42]:

Not useful for everyday business applications. Jordan, you should talk about Microsoft Bingchat more. Nope, not useful for everyday business applications. Not yet. Until these other large language models allow you to specifically visit one URL and accurately do those four things that we talked about. Query the web, visit a specific URL, YouTube, summaries, PDF, summaries PDF on the web, summaries, right? Not just uploading them. Until one large language model can do all of those things, I’m not using it. And guess what, y’all, you shouldn’t either, because you’re wasting your time.

Jordan Wilson [00:33:27]:

Until those other large language models, they’ve talked about adding different plugins and functionality, and I know they’re testing them, but until they do, until they release it, y’all are just wasting your time. Maverick, thanks for joining us. Maverick says Bart is hugely frustrating to use. I prefer ChatGPT. Yes, with ChatGPT and plugins, there’s not a lot of things you can’t do. All right, I did mention a Bing, right? So here we go. Here’s this exact same query in the example that I told you. Now you can see it, right? So.

Jordan Wilson [00:34:06]:

I gave in the links that I gave it, I gave it a CNBC link and a time link. Y’all, people, again, I don’t just come on the everyday AI show and just talk some episodes. I research for three 4510 hours because there’s so much bad information out there. So, oh, guess what? What I told you guys is correct. And literally will have people argue with me and be like, oh, this Jordan guy doesn’t know what he’s talking about because Microsoft Bing is definitely connected to the Internet. So you should use Bing. No, don’t use Bing. Chat, don’t get me wrong, Microsoft’s awesome.

Jordan Wilson [00:34:49]:

I can’t wait for 365 Copilot. Bing is still useful, but not for everyday applications because look at the bottom, look, when I gave it specific websites, look what it did. It queried the keywords in the URL and instead it didn’t go to those websites that I wanted, it went to Bookings.edu, it went to Whitehouse Gov, although helpful, and that’s smart Bing chat because I did ask for U s. Regulations. So it looked at this new fact sheet. So that’s great. But if you want something specific and then it went to Goodwinlaw.com. If you want something specific, if you want control over your input and your output in a large language model, even though that’s great from Microsoft Bing, even though Google Barred gave me somewhat accurate and up to date information, it didn’t do what I wanted.

Jordan Wilson [00:35:40]:

It didn’t give me full control over the input and the output. All right, that’s it, y’all this helpful? I hope this was helpful. Nadia says hello. Nadia, thank you for joining us. Ben says looks like you’re going to have to build the large language model and the plugin. Yeah, let’s get that plugin going. Brian, thank you for joining us. Brian says your results match my experience, too, in terms of different tools.

Jordan Wilson [00:36:16]:

Yeah. So I hope we cleared some confusion today on why ChatGPT needs Internet access and why you should probably stop. I’m sorry, we do this every day. We help people. We’re not charging. You right individuals out there. We’re keeping our PPP course free, our Prime Prompt polish course where you learn things like this, our daily newsletter. If you haven’t already, go sign up right now.

Youreverydayai.com that’s youreverydayai.com it’s in the show notes here on the live stream. It’s in the show notes on the podcast. Go sign up. Y’all, we put in so much work every single day our team does to make sure that people tuning in, to make sure people reading our newsletter aren’t getting bad information because there’s already too much bad information out there. All right, thank you for joining us. We have a great show tomorrow, some great shows. Next week. We’re going to be dropping those in the newsletter if you want to see what’s on deck.

Jordan Wilson [00:37:28]:

And again, go check out that 100th episode. It was so fun, so gratifying. Thank you all for your support and to allow us to continue to do this and to continue to grow. So if you do know someone, maybe a spouse, partner, friend, colleague, neighbor, your aunt’s, dog’s, babysitter’s brother, if someone else is trying to learn generative AI that you know or you think they should, please share this with them. Tag them here in the comments, text them, send them our URL, forward the email newsletter to them. Y’all, I want to keep doing this to you. And I want to keep doing this with you. And to continue to bring you good, up to date, reliable information about using generative AI.

Jordan Wilson [00:38:20]:

Because we all need it. We all need it. You all remember I just talked about all these consulting firms investing billions of dollars into generative AI, which means all of that is going to trickle down to all of your companies. Guess what? You can outsmart the future, right? Like what it says on our website, you can be prepared. By the time in six months or three years, when your company is now enforcing generative AI top to bottom, you’ll be ahead. You can be the one leading the pack, but you’re going to need to go to your Everyday.com to do that. You’re going to need to join in. You’re going to need to tune into the newsletter to the podcast, to the live stream.

Jordan Wilson [00:39:01]:

Live stream. No live streams. I’m not screaming. Sometimes I rant, but I don’t scream. Thank you all for joining us though, and we hope to see you back tomorrow and every day for more Everyday AI. Thanks y’all. And that’s a wrap for today’s edition of Everyday AI. Thanks for joining us.
