Hi, to tell you the truth, AI or ChatGPT became my second method about a month ago - to find solution related to my projects (arduino & robotic programming). It's about 5% usage. But!!! Now I use it more than 80% whenever I face problem to my projects (and other things) and ... more than 90% solved successfully.

I'm so happy in ONE case, but chatGPT doesn't supply or provide 2D or 3D interaction, e.g. circuit, diagram, reports, etc. I'm sure, someday there will be 2D or 3D interaction!

In one side, ChatGPT can help my job and my arduino projects. But, other sides, perhaps, in my thought, there'll be many experts out there (or here) .... like "jobless" (sorry). And, when the AI knows everything, forum and community, can be, well, halt.

I give you an example of my communication to chatGPT. "he" said that GND must be wired to all arduino multicopter and then one problem solved - whatever parts/components those are. I'm a newbie in electronics.

Add:
I will not find impolite or rude speaking in chatGPT
I'm not new in issue of chatGPT, I just want to share my thought.

What do you think about it?
(I hope I write in the correct sub-forum)

I think it means, perhaps, that you ask Ai a very beginner questions, answers to which could be found in Google in ten seconds.
And I think that it is not a bad idea that novices ask an Ai your countless dumb questions rather than in forum:)

Let's be clear about this. AI knows nothing, it is just a web crawler gathering what other people have posted. It has no idea of context and no idea if what it has gathered and then spewed out is correct.

There is a whole heap of incorrect information out there, god forbid it ever takes information from the instructables site.

AI can only explain things, or produce things that have been done before, there is no creativity in it. It just puts stuff in a bag and shakes it up and then presents it as fact.

If it takes 3 hours for 3 towels to dry, how log does it take 9 towels to dry?

ChatGPT

If it takes 3 hours for 3 towels to dry, it means that each towel takes 3 hours to dry individually.

To find out how long it takes for 9 towels to dry, you can use the same rate. Since each towel takes 3 hours to dry, you can multiply that time by the number of towels:

3 hours/towel * 9 towels = 27 hours

So, it would take 27 hours for 9 towels to dry under the same conditions.

Wrong.. it still takes 3 hours for 9 towels to dry.
Its not a trick question.

This shows the "human" part of chatGPT.

@jimmyjr2023 if chatGPT solved your programming problems, do you understand the code it supplied?

I asked the same as your question and this is the answer:

If it takes 3 hours for 3 towels to dry, we can assume that the rate at which towels dry is constant. In this case, it takes 3 hours for 3 towels, so the rate of drying is 1 towel per hour (3 towels / 3 hours = 1 towel per hour).

Now, if you have 9 towels to dry at the same rate of 1 towel per hour, it will still take 1 hour to dry each towel. Therefore, it will take 9 hours to dry all 9 towels.

dont say "beloved" please . Trust me, I love you ALL. I also love this forum since I know I can ask directly to many genuine experts. One high thing I know that Human can not be replaced by whatever it is. So, never include AI features in this forum.

There was an untold assumption that towels are not hung to dry serially. If you have space to hang only one towel at a time or space in the tumble dryer for 3 towels at a time then the answer is correct : you need a number of serial drying batches.

➜ ChatGPT made the serial drying assumption whilst humans would just assume you have unlimited drying space.

Say the question was for 9000 towels - then humans would start asking questions about the process / context and other constraints.

So I would say the question was not clear enough, which is a key for AI interaction.

I asked chatGPT

I have unlimited drying space. If it takes 3 hours for 3 towels to dry, how log does it take 9 towels to dry?

The answer was (even with log instead of long btw in the question !)

If it takes 3 hours for 3 towels to dry, it would still take 3 hours for 9 towels to dry, assuming the drying conditions remain the same. Each towel takes 3 hours to dry independently in this scenario.

So you get what you ask for, as always writing detailed specifications is key.

For example I added

I can only dry now 6 towel at a time

And the answer was

If you can only dry 6 towels at a time, and you have 9 towels to dry, you would need to dry them in two separate batches. It would still take 3 hours to dry each batch of 6 towels, so in total, it would take 6 hours to dry all 9 towels.
