Welcome to Day 1 of the AI For Surveyors - Getting Started with AI!
Do you want to learn all about how to use AI for checking your surveying work, decoding legal descriptions, crunching calculations and more? Let's learn together.
Each Friday for 7 weeks, you’ll receive an email guiding you through the process of learning how AI works. All you need to do is follow this AI hub and we'll guide you through the rest.
By the end of this series, you’ll never be afraid of AI again, you'll know how to use AI for everyday land surveyor tasks and you will acquire new skills to showcase. 🏆
Day 1 of the challenge is the easiest: All you have to do is get signed up with ChatGPT.
>>>Sign up here
It’s free, it uses GPT (Generative Pre-trained Transformer), which is what many paid AI softwares are built on, and it’s more flexible than those paid softwares.
It’s easy to sign up for and you don’t have to enter credit card info for a trial or anything like that. It should take a minute or less to sign up. This gives you access to ChatGPT 3.0 and 3.5 and that is completely free.
ChatGPT 3 and 3.5 do not have the ability to query real time information using the internet and everything it responds with will be information gathered before November 2021. It is incredible for writing and rewriting documents and finding general information on anything.
Just be sure to have your phone by you to confirm your registration. At that point you are ready to start playing with AI. Ask it some questions and see what you get. In future posts, we will show you how to specifically ask for things in ways that encourages the AI to respond with exactly what you are looking for.
ChatGPT 4 (aka ChatGPT Plus) has access to real time information but the only difference is it costs $20/m. If you decide to upgrade to ChatGPT Plus, which will give you access to the latest version of ChatGPT, GPT-4, you can easily do it once you log in to your free account.
All you need is the free account to get started.
Today's takeaway: You can get started in just a few minutes a day. (And for free!)
See you next Friday for Day 2!
