As always, to play it safe, double-check the recipes to make sure your bot isn’t hallucinating.
Let’s move on to gift-giving – a talent that some of us have more of than others. There are a number of AI tools that aim to make gift selection easier, including a website that comes up with gift ideas based on someone’s instagram profile,
i liked dreamgift, which uses a chatbot to ask you a series of questions about your gift recipient’s age, gender, interests and hobbies as well as how much you’re willing to spend, and automatically orders items online Provides ideas and links to do. (My wife confessed that she liked some of the bot’s gift suggestions, including an indoor herb growing kit, more than some of the gifts I’ve given her over the years. Ouch.)
If you prefer to use a chatbot, that will work too. Bing and Bard, which are linked search engines, are powerful shopping assistants., The trick to getting exclusive recommendations is to share detailed information about your budget and the people you’re shopping for.
Let’s end with something more creative. You can use AI to create a customized bedtime story or even your own hard-copy children’s book.
Give a chatbot like ChatGPT or Bard a detailed prompt that includes your child’s preferred storytelling style, any details you want to include and the situation you want to address in the story. Here’s a sign I wrote for an imaginary child who is unhappy about moving into a new house. I asked to include some familiar characters in it:
Act as a children’s book author by imitating “The Frog and Toad.” My child is going through a difficult time – we are moving to a new home and changing schools. Write a story to help him with this process. Join our dogs, Max and Mochi Corgis, as characters.
The chatbot crafted a heartwarming story about Max and Mochi, a pair of lovable siblings. They loved playing in the park and were sad to move to the new house. But they support each other and eventually move to a new school, where they make new friends: a bubbly beagle named Bella and a cheeky chihuahua named Charlie. Everything went well in the end.
