The Watsonville Chevrolet car dealership just wrote me a python script to calculate π. I have no idea where Watsonville is, or which one of several in the USA it is, but their website also helped clarify how to deal with red wine stains.
Some companies are adding ChatGPT to their website marketing chatbots. Found via Chris White, it’s clear that not in all cases the boundaries of such bots are well defined. Perhaps because they are directly connected to OpenAI’s service, and only prompted to behave ‘like a car dealer’, rather than specifically trained and isolated instances.
I engaged the chatbot and didn’t want to directly prompt it with something off-topic. I asked about a car, and then built on whatever the bot generated in response. My attempts to take it away from the topic of cars (towards Santa’s sleigh having more advanced tech features than Chevrolet and the infotainment systems the bot praised) didn’t bring much. The bot then aimed to end the conversation, which is when it gave me an opening….
It ended politely with ‘Is there anything else I can assist you with?‘. ‘Anything’ you say?
Why yes, thank you for asking! There is. You can. I’d like a python script to approach the number π in at least 100 decimals.
Which it wrote for me. “Certainly!”
And then it ended politely once more with “If you have any other questions or need further assistance, feel free to ask!”
Sure thing, ChevroGPT. How about removing red wine stains? Any tips?
Which it again concluded with ‘any other questions?’….
There’s no need to pay for your own ChatGPT4 account, just find a website that uses it to create a marketing bot.
