It is very interesting that ChatGPT can remember your favourite travelling place which you told it in your earlier conversation. This feature can be very useful for businesses to give their users the experience that they are talking with a real human.

2. ChatGPT can create content outlines for any topic.

If you want to write an article on any topic and are worried about the topic’s outline. ChatGPT is here for you. For example, I asked ChatGPT can you generate an outline on Data Science, and below is what it returned:

Astonishing. Isn’t it? This is just the start, ChatGPT has so much more for you.

3. ChatGPT can fix errors in the code.

I was amused to see how well ChatGPT can fix the errors in your code. I was writing code in python to calculate the sum of two numbers and was getting errors. Below is how ChatGPT was able to resolve it.

I know it was an easy to find error. But who is stopping you to try ChatGPT to resolve the errors in your code 😛

4. ChatGPT is capable of writing simple code in programming languages.

Yes, not only humans but now a bot can also write programming code with just natural language as an input. Below is a screenshot of how ChatGPT was able to create the Fibonacci series of 10 numbers in Java.

This ChatGPT is smart buddy. Sometimes even I fail to write the Fibonacci series. Haha, Just Kidding.

5. ChatGPT rejects inappropriate requests

There is a high chance that such an intelligent bot can be used for inappropriate work. Therefore, ChatGPT is built with the capability of rejecting requests.

So relax, and don’t even think about using my buddy for abusive or sexual conversation.
