Today, I want to talk about how I use AI vision and voice in my everyday life.
As a dad with a full-time job, a creator presence, and two kids - my time is limited.
ChatGPT’s new vision and voice features have already made life much easier.
Below is a typical day in my life with multimodal AI.
7 AM: Ask about a photo with AI assistant
It’s morning and I notice a new type of weed growing in my backyard (touching grass is stressful 😅). I take a photo of it and ask:
How do I get rid of this?
It gives me a list of ideas that I’ll explore more on the weekend.
7:30 AM: Translate a paper with AI translator
My 5-year-old recently started kindergarten. Her grandparents help with pick-up but their English is limited. I take a photo of her school schedule and ask:
Translate this to Chinese.
It returns a perfectly translated Chinese schedule that I can copy and paste.
8 AM: Commute call with AI advisor
On my drive to work, I open ChatGPT Voice. She knows all about me because I added a 1,500-word essay about my life to custom instructions. We talk about:
How I can achieve my goals
How to structure a newsletter post
Where to go for a family trip
She’s incredibly understanding and patient and I almost don’t want the call to end when I arrive at work.
P.S. If you’re on vacation in a foreign country, you can also use ChatGPT Voice to live translate and speak to someone in their local language.
12 PM: Photo to recipe with AI health coach
For lunch, I eat a delicious bowl of beef noodle soup. I snap a photo of it and ask:
How do I make this?
I get a full recipe that I can make at home.
4 PM: Parking help with AI car attendant
After lunch, I drive to the city for a meeting. The street parking signs are confusing so I take a photo and ask:
It’s Wednesday at 4 pm. Can I park at this spot now? Tell me in 1 line.
It returns an answer that reassures me that my car won’t get towed.
5 PM: Commute call with AI therapist
I feel stressed on my drive back home.
I call my AI advisor again except now she’s acting more like a therapist. It’s remarkable how much she’s willing to listen and provide advice.
By the time I get home, I feel much better.
6:30 PM: Learning with my kid’s AI tutor
During dinner, my 5-year-old asks randomly “How does the brain work?”
Afterward, we find a diagram of the brain that I upload and ask AI:
I’m in 1st grade. Please explain this to me.
We get an explanation that uses simple words and analogies that my daughter can understand. We discuss AI’s answer and both learn something new.
7 PM: Checking homework with AI grader
My daughter finishes her math homework and I want to quickly check her answers. I take a picture of her homework and ask:
Do these answers look right?
In the back of my head, I hope that she doesn’t use AI to do homework herself!
8 PM: Creating a bedtime story with AI author
Instead of pulling out the same old picture books, I decide to try something new. I upload a picture that she drew recently and ask:
Write a funny bedtime story for a 1st grader based on this picture that I can read in 5 min. Make it rhyme and include a twist ending.
I read it to my daughter as she slowly falls asleep.
8:30 PM: Doing finances with AI analyst
After my daughter goes to bed, I decide to take a quick look at our family budget. I upload a CSV of our past 6 months of expenses to ChatGPT Advanced Data and ask:
Analyze my year to date credit card spend, am I spending more money month to month?
It produces a chart that shows a clear uptick in spend. I discuss this data with my wife.
9 PM: Design to code with AI engineer
It’s now 9 PM and my brain is fried. But I still want to play around with a side project. I upload a snapshot of a website and ask:
Recreate this UI by writing code in one HTML file with tailwind CSS for styling. Make sure you get the layout correct and uses images from unsplash.com as placeholders.
Take a deep breath and think step by step - make sure your work is accurate.
AI gives me code that I copy into Replit to create a working website in a few minutes.
