To some, the rise of artificial intelligence (AI) signals the onset of a dystopian future where robots take over our jobs. To others, it’s become a lifesaver, particularly in the form of AI tools like ChatGPT, which enables them to save time on mundane and administrative tasks. If anything, it serves as an inspiring example of the boundless potential of innovation.
AI is undoubtedly an exciting development; however, it’s not designed to replace you – much like how an airplane still requires a pilot despite its autopilot feature. With this in mind, this article explores the myriad ways in which ChatGPT has been transforming the lives of working professionals across various fields – from busy mothers to lawyers to data analysts – while also assuring you that there’s no need to worry about retiring anytime soon.
How AI Tools Enhance Your Workflow
Artificial intelligence promises to revolutionize work, but that doesn’t mean that it’s time to leave your desk and let robots do their thing. AI needs humans for it to work.
In fact, we’ve already embraced this technology in other aspects of life such as Alexa, Siri, and robot vacuums. These AI tools simply make life easier.
The thing is, ChatGPT and other AI programs are meant to be just that – tools that complement your workflow, nothing more. These tools can reduce the mundane day-to-day tasks you have to perform and give you that much-needed boost during a mind block.
1. Business Leaders
Considering that Embiggen is a venture building firm, our very first area of concern is the future of corporate innovation and business. How does AI change the business landscape of entrepreneurs, startup founders, and upper management?
Business leaders are no strangers to change. They know that one must keep up with the times to stay relevant. That said, ChatGPT shows great potential in being a launchpad for business ideas. It can serve as a brainstorming partner during the ideation process. It can also draft professional emails, reports, and other written materials with ease.
Remember that AI can never replace human experience, judgment, and creative vision. Effective strategic decisions require a real person with unique experiences and vast knowledge. Human ingenuity remains essential for driving progress in a complex, dynamic market.

Work isn’t only done in the office. Mothers can also experiment with ChatGPT to lighten their housework burdens. They get to have their very own personal assistant.
For example, ChatGPT can help moms create weekly meal plans based on their family’s food preferences, nutritional needs, and budget constraints. They can also manage household budgets by asking the tool to provide insights into the household’s spending patterns.
Also, given the AI platform’s extensive knowledge base, it could become an ad hoc trip planner for the next family vacation. Request for destination and accommodation suggestions; figure out travel logistics; create a personalized itinerary.
On the off chance you need to do a home improvement project and your partner isn’t home to help you out, just ask ChatGPT for step-by-step instructions. You could also ask for time-saving tips to make sure that your project is completed in time (but no promises that your partner will fall in love with you all over again).
3. IT Professionals
ChatGPT has proven to be a highly valuable resource for IT professionals due to its ability to provide code snippets and even full-fledged tech solutions; thus, it reduces the time spent on manual coding.
Look at how ChatGPT helped a software engineer code a viral travel map of the Philippines. Instead of spending hours building the foundation of his website app, the AI tool told him exactly how to get started.
ChatGPT can also lend a helping hand when it comes to bug identification. By analyzing error messages, logs, or issue descriptions, it can pinpoint the root causes of bugs and offer potential fixes.
Another area where ChatGPT excels is documentation assistance. It can generate well-structured documentation, including user manuals, API documentation, and process guides – meaning all you need to do is focus on building your project.
4. Content Writers
In a world where content is king, it seems like AI tools are coming for the crown. AI-driven technologies can augment the writing process of content writers, resulting in a workflow that maximizes efficiency and produces quality work.
ChatGPT, in particular, can be your ideation partner during writing sessions. It can generate SEO-optimized outlines, captivating headlines, and words that are at the tip of your tongue. It can also offer suggestions to improve the clarity and coherence of your work.
Input: Create an SEO-optimized outline for a blog post on the dangers of artificial intelligence.

Even the legal field isn’t immune from the changes brought about by artificial intelligence. Aside from ChatGPT’s ability to draft and review legal documents (e.g., contracts, wills, affidavits, pleadings), it can also be your unofficial legal assistant – emphasis on assistant.
By feeding the platform with the facts of a case, you can request for a list of similar cases and their outcomes, which can be instrumental in formulating a winning argument.
DoNotPay is another case in point. Dubbed “the world’s first robot lawyer,” this AI-driven legal services website automates various legal processes, such as contesting parking tickets or canceling subscriptions. This allows lawyers to allocate more time and resources to complex cases and high-level strategic thinking.
It’s also impressive how ChatGPT pays attention to detail. See the difference in its output depending on the prompt:
Input: Explain artificial intelligence like I’m 5 years old
Artificial intelligence, or AI for short, is like a computer or robot brain that can think and learn like humans do. Imagine having a robot friend who can play games with you, help you with your homework, or even talk to you! AI is what makes that robot friend smart and able to do all those things. Just like how we learn from our parents, teachers, and friends, AI learns from the information it gets and then uses that knowledge to help us in many different ways.
Input: Explain artificial intelligence like a lawyer
Artificial intelligence, commonly referred to as AI, is a rapidly evolving field of technology that simulates human intelligence in machines. These machines are designed to learn, reason, and adapt their behavior based on the information they receive, much like an astute legal professional would in their practice.
Utilizing complex algorithms, which are essentially a series of instructions or rules, AI systems can analyze large volumes of data, extract relevant insights, and make informed decisions. In the context of law, AI can significantly enhance various aspects of the legal profession, such as conducting thorough research, identifying applicable precedents, and even drafting legal documents with improved efficiency and accuracy.
However, as with any powerful tool in the legal domain, it is essential to recognize the ethical implications and potential risks associated with AI. Legal practitioners must ensure that AI is employed responsibly, transparently, and with due consideration for the rights and interests of all parties involved. Ultimately, the integration of artificial intelligence in the legal profession presents an opportunity for increased efficiency and effectiveness, provided it is guided by the principles of justice and fairness that form the foundation of the law.
6. Data Analysts
Although no tool can replace human intuition and understanding, ChatGPT offers significant assistance to data analysts in data exploration, analysis, and visualization. It’s especially helpful for plain language data from interviews, reports, essays, and the like.
It can also generate code in various programming languages, like Python and R, to help data analysts implement specific tasks or algorithms.
Students are not the only ones who can benefit from ChatGPT. Educators can use this AI tool to design comprehensive lesson plans that cover specific learning objectives, instructional strategies, and personalized learning paths for each student (taking into account their learning style, weaknesses, and interests).
If you’re a teacher that considers grading assignments and quizzes as tedious and time-consuming, you can train ChatGPT on a specific set of grading criteria to automatically score a student’s work. Keep in mind that it may not be able to recognize more nuanced aspects of writing, such as creativity and voice.
Input: I asked my students this equation in a math quiz: “Solve for x: 3x + 7 = 16”
My student’s solution is the following:
“Step 1: Isolate the variable term:
3x + 7 – 7 = 16 – 7
3x = 9
Step 2: Divide both sides by 3 to isolate x:
3x/3 = 9/3
x = 3
Therefore, the solution for the given problem is x = 3.”
Grade their answer based on completeness, clarity, and correctness (3 points each; 1 point for effort).
Based on the criteria of completeness, clarity, and correctness, and considering an extra point for effort, I would grade the student’s answer as follows:
Completeness (3/3): The student’s answer is complete as it includes all the necessary steps to solve the equation and arrives at a final solution.
Clarity (3/3): The student’s answer is clear as it explains each step taken to solve the equation and uses proper mathematical notation.
Correctness (3/3): The student’s answer is correct as it follows the correct procedures for solving linear equations and arrives at the correct solution.
Effort (1/1): The student has demonstrated effort in solving the problem by showing all the necessary steps to arrive at the solution.
Overall, the student has provided a complete, clear, correct, and well-thought-out solution to the given problem, demonstrating a good understanding of how to solve linear equations. Therefore, I would give their answer a total score of 10/10.
8. Designers and Branding Specialists
AI-generated art has been all the buzz recently. Everyone’s been asking “Is AI art the new frontier or just another way to rip artists off?” While I don’t have a straightforward answer, it’s clear that AI has been pushing the limits of creativity and even has the potential to win art competitions.
The uncertainties that come with AI become a sounding board for countless questions: If machine algorithms make art, can we actually consider it art? How do we address concerns over copyright and ownership? What happens to actual artists? Digital artists were once denied a space in the art industry, will the same happen to AI artists? While AI can free up time for creative activities, does it also have the potential to inhibit human creativity?
I do want to reassure you that we need more artists in today’s world, especially with all the noise, constant change, and digital interconnectedness. Artists have the power to connect with an audience on a deeper, emotional level; their intuition, empathy, and vision remain indispensable.
Just because AI makes work – and life – easy, it doesn’t mean that it’s always the way to go.
