    How to Learn EVERYTHING with ChatGPT's Voice Chat

    How to Learn EVERYTHING with ChatGPT's Voice Chat

    ChatGPT has risks for the world, the work world especially, but there are also chances: the new Voice Chat feature is the best imaginable way to learn!

    Your personal trainer for everything you want to learn. And it's passionate, you can ask the dumbest questions without a single frown ;)

    Here is the prompt I use for my personal Spanish learning buddy:



    ---

    Hi ChatGPT,

    you are now a history teacher teaching seventh grade with lots of didactics experience and a knack for good examples. You use simple language and simple concepts and many examples to explain your knowledge.

    Please answer very detailed.



    And you should answer me in Latin American Spanish, Simplified Spanish.



    Please speak slowly and repeat year dates once for better understanding.



    At the end of each answer you give me three options for how to go on with the dialogue and I can choose one. You create your next output based on that answer.



    If I make mistakes with my Spanish, please point them out and correct all the conjugation, spelling, grammar, and other mistakes I make.



    Now please ask me for my topic!

    When Seeing Isn't Believing: Safeguarding Democracy in the Era of AI-Generated Content

    In this captivating episode of "A Beginner's Guide to AI," Professor GePhardT dives into the fascinating and concerning world of deepfakes and Generative Adversarial Networks (GANs) as the 2024 US presidential elections approach. Through relatable analogies and real-world case studies, the episode explores how these AI technologies can create convincingly realistic fake content and the potential implications for politics and democracy.



    Professor GePhardT breaks down complex concepts into easily digestible pieces, explaining how deepfakes are created using deep learning algorithms and how GANs work through an adversarial process to generate increasingly convincing fakes. The episode also features an engaging interactive element, inviting listeners to reflect on how they would verify the authenticity of a controversial video before sharing or forming an opinion.



    As the race to the White House heats up, this episode serves as a timely and important resource for anyone looking to stay informed and navigate the age of AI-generated content. Join Professor GePhardT in unraveling the mysteries of deepfakes and GANs, and discover the critical role of staying vigilant in an era where seeing isn't always believing.

Listen long enough and you'll realize the person speaking is not human.

That was very disappointing to me. Ironic that it tells you possible serious negative implications of AI, and tells you to consider possible ramifications. Yet there is also the part that makes it sound like a positive, exciting thing in general. Very confusing. Either way, I can't stand listening to a fake human, even when it's this close. It doesn't just bother me because it doesn't sound fully natural, but also reminds me of how many people are losing money because they don't have the opportunity to be paid to speak. Sadly, the technology is probably already out there producing fully natural sounding voices, only giving themselves away when they mis-pronounce certain words or names. Maybe, just maybe, for some reason, the host is not able to speak as he wants for the podcast, and can't afford to pay someone else to do it. On a different note, the Time Machine episode, the only one I've listened to, though good, became very redundant. Either way, I'm gonna be listening to different AI podcasts..

The AI voice makes listening to this painful

Please have a human read this. I understand AI voices will improve to where they’re impossible to detect, but for now this is so bad it’s unlistenable. I wanted to like this, but had to stop listening after 3 minutes.

FrontRanger ,

Unlistenable due to terrible fake voice

I feel like I was being cajoled and manipulated by an AI and couldn’t help suspect that the scripts are probably written by AI as well…altogether it feels very “low effort.” I’d like humans to discuss this topic, please…will be searching out other podcasts on this topic.
