Generative AI

Generative AI is a type of artificial intelligence that is designed to generate new content, such as text, images, videos, or audio, based on patterns it has learned from existing data. It is a subset of AI that focuses on creating rather than just recognizing patterns. In this blog post, I will show three examples of how friends and I have used generative AI to accomplish tasks with great efficiency. However, I must note generative AI comes with ethical considerations, as it can potentially be used to generate fake content or misinformation. I don’t think you will find any of that in my examples. Disclosure: I got a little help from Bard AI on this introductory paragraph.

Example 1

Mike Kaltschnee, Co-Director of Danbury Hackerspace, Inc. and a friend of mine, asked me if I would be willing to write a letter of support for the Innovation Studios project. Mike wanted to ensure strong support from the community for the project and he felt a letter of support from me would help since I live in the neighborhood of the project.

Mike explained the team was focusing on the real benefits of this project including:
1) The micro studios are in the $1,250 per month range to facilitate young people being able to afford an apartment in Danbury (154 studios at that price point will help all area employers; not to mention that 44 1BR’s at ~$1,775)
2) The most environmentally friendly development is redevelopment (zero new impact on the area). It is a building that has been closed for three years.
3) The Innovation Studios Makerspace will give young people, artists, and entrepreneurs more learning opportunities and access to prototyping tools, art, and light manufacturing equipment.

 I copied the three points and pasted them into chatGPT and added “please write a letter of recommendation based on the three points. Within a couple of seconds and with only that small amount of input, chatGPT generated the following.

Subject: Letter of Support for Local Innovations Studio Project in Danbury, CT

Dear Mayor [Mayor’s Last Name],

I am writing this letter to express my wholehearted support for the local innovations studio project in Danbury, CT. As a resident and advocate for community development, I strongly believe that this project will bring immense benefits to our city and its residents. I would like to highlight the real advantages of this endeavor that make it a worthwhile investment for our community.

First and foremost, the micro studios being offered at an affordable price point of $1,250 per month will play a crucial role in enabling young people to find affordable housing in Danbury. The availability of 154 studios at this price range will not only empower the younger generation to establish their independence but will also address the needs of all area employers. Additionally, the inclusion of 44 one-bedroom apartments at approximately $1,775 will further contribute to the diverse housing options available in our city. By providing affordable housing, this project will foster a vibrant and inclusive community, attracting talented individuals who will contribute to the growth and prosperity of Danbury.

Furthermore, it is commendable that the development of the innovations studio is rooted in environmental consciousness. By repurposing a building that has remained closed for three years, this project adheres to the principles of sustainability and minimizing new environmental impact. Such redevelopment initiatives serve as an excellent example for other communities, emphasizing the importance of utilizing existing resources to foster growth rather than consuming additional land and resources. I am confident that this approach will not only enhance the visual appeal of the area but also contribute to the overall environmental well-being of our city.

Moreover, the Innovation Studios Makerspace component of this project holds immense potential for our young people, artists, and entrepreneurs. By providing access to prototyping tools, art supplies, and light manufacturing equipment, the makerspace will act as a hub for creativity and innovation. This will offer invaluable learning opportunities for our youth, enabling them to explore their passions, develop new skills, and engage in entrepreneurial endeavors. The access to such resources will foster a spirit of collaboration and experimentation, which are essential for the growth of a vibrant creative community. The positive impact of this makerspace will undoubtedly ripple throughout Danbury, promoting economic development and nurturing the next generation of artists, inventors, and makers.

In conclusion, I wholeheartedly endorse the local innovations studio project in Danbury, CT, and believe that it will bring a multitude of benefits to our community. The provision of affordable housing options, the environmentally conscious approach, and the establishment of the Innovation Studios Makerspace are all commendable aspects that make this project worthy of our support. I kindly request that you and the esteemed members of the City Council consider these significant advantages and extend your support to ensure the success and realization of this project. Together, we can build a stronger, more inclusive, and prosperous Danbury for generations to come.

Thank you for your attention to this matter, and I remain at your disposal should you require any further information or assistance.

Example 2

My son in Boston is a cloud services architect. He does some freelancing and decided to update his website to better describe his capabilities. He provided the following text and asked AI assistance to build a website from it. “Experience, personalized IT consulting. Providing guidance and expertise in the areas of cloud infrastructure, cybersecurity, storage, systems, and virtualization. Let us build the infrastructure for your success!” That is all he provided to an AI-assisted website builder called hostinger.com. The generative AI built a complete website.

Example 3

My friend, Bob Cooper, likes Country Western music so he decided to give generative AI a shot at composing something. He asked chatGPT to compose a county music song about a truck, a dog, a beer and a moonlit night and a gal. Here is what he received almost instantly.

(Verse 1) In a small town, where the stars shine bright, There’s a tale of a truck on a moonlit night, Rollin’ down those country lanes so slow, With a loyal ol’ hound and a heart all aglow.


(Chorus) Truckin’ under that big ol’ moon, A cold beer in hand, hummin’ a tune, With my faithful dog by my side, And a country gal I hold with pride.


(Verse 2) The engine roars, a symphony of steel, As we chase that horizon, it’s surreal, My dog’s ears flap in the midnight breeze, And that gal’s laughter puts my soul at ease.


(Chorus) Truckin’ under that big ol’ moon, A cold beer in hand, hummin’ a tune, With my faithful dog by my side, And a country gal I hold with pride.


(Bridge) We park by the river where the fireflies dance, The night’s our stage for a sweet romance, Under the stars, our love takes flight, As the moon serenades us through the night.


(Verse 3) The dog rests his head on my knee, As we share tales of who we used to be, And that gal, she smiles with a heart so true, In the glow of the moon, love’s a dream that grew.


(Chorus) Truckin’ under that big ol’ moon, A cold beer in hand, hummin’ a tune, With my faithful dog by my side, And a country gal I hold with pride.


(Outro) As the night winds down, we bid goodbye, But the memories linger, and they’ll never die, For in that truck, under the moon so bright, We found love and joy that felt so right.
