Weirdo's Weekly Update — 10 Jul, 2023

AI News

OpenAI has thrown open the doors for all ChatGPT Plus users to access its Code Interpreter, putting data analysis and visualization capabilities at your fingertips. Whether you want to create interactive HTML files, generate stunning charts, or even extract color palettes from images, Code Interpreter can help you. Talk about taking Python coding to the next level!

In other news, OpenAI has announced the general availability of its GPT-4 API, enabling a broader base of developers to harness the might of their most advanced model. As they phase out older models in the Completions API, they also enhance the GPT-3.5 Turbo, DALL·E, and Whisper APIs. However, there's been a minor bump in the road. ChatGPT's Browse with Bing beta feature, a boon for up-to-the-minute data search, has been temporarily disabled due to some teething troubles. Despite the short-term inconvenience, we appreciate OpenAI's quick response and look forward to its return.

Here are some Code Interpreter examples:

Travel Tips

Before embarking on your summer trip abroad, here are some tips for overcoming language barriers and why trying the local language matters:Use gestures and expressions to communicate. A raised eyebrow, a smile, or a hand gesture can convey a lot. Use your inner charades to champion and speak confidently; avoid pointing fingers.

Learn critical phrases like greetings and thank you. Simple words can work wonders. Saying "hello" or "thank you" in the local language shows respect and can melt hearts. They love it. Locals might reward your effort with smiles or insider tips for great street food or local hidden treasure.

Trying to speak even a few essential words is like having a secret language decoder for authentic experiences. It shows curiosity and respect for the culture, leading to meaningful connections and unforgettable adventures. Non-verbal communication with a smile is as important as verbal.

Something to think about

"Passion is a feeling that follows action. It tends to be created or discovered, not predicted or planned. You don't find your passion. It finds you as you get in the mix and try things.” James Clear


“The sign of a beautiful person is that they always see beauty in others.”—Omar Suleiman

Productivity Tips and Tricks

"It's not about 'having' time; it's about making time."

It's important to prioritize - time is a valuable resource that can be consciously allocated and utilized effectively.

For example, how many times you wanted to add daily training to your schedule, but you said, "I don't have time to exercise." Do I really don't have even 30mins in the whole day to dedicate to my health, or is it just not a priority for me? By planning and making time, you can evaluate your daily schedule, identify less productive activities or time-wasting habits, and consciously allocate a specific time slot for your exercise. By actively making time, you can incorporate it into your routine and make progress toward your goal. You don't need 2 h; you can start with 30 mins or even less, like 10mins.

This principle applies to various aspects of life, whether it's pursuing personal interests, engaging in self-care activities, or investing time in important relationships. By shifting your mindset from passively waiting for spare time to actively making time, you can take control of your schedules and ensure that your priorities receive the attention they deserve. It requires discipline, effective planning, and the willingness to make conscious choices about time spent.
