Waited till the last second to get that perfect holiday gift? Coming up empty on ideas?

Fear not! Your friends at Carroll Tech have found the newest way of drumming up gift ideas for your long-lost uncle! Introducing the newest way to flood your brain with holiday gift ideas: ChatGPT. 

If you are unfamiliar with ChatGPT, it is a free online service that you can use for most everyday purposes. With a built in AI (artificial intelligence), this service can give you answers and ideas to virtually anything. Need a recipe for some holiday cookies for your holiday work party? Boom, ChatGPT is on it. Perhaps you want a new workout plan for that New Years resolution, ChatGPT will give you an in-depth plan to start the new year off right. 

There are plenty of ways to use this new and exciting service, but let’s focus on how we are figuring out that last holiday present for Grandma.

Step 1: Visit: https://chat.openai.com/ and login, or create an account. You can easily link your google account to ChatGPT for quick start-up. If you have any inquiries about security on ChatGPT please click here.

Step 2: Once signed in, you should see a screen that looks as such.

This is your home base for ChatGPT, where you will be inputting your holiday gift questions. Make sure to be precise as possible, and include some keywords that could spark some gift ideas (Sports, outdoors, gaming, art, etc.). Once you feel ready, go on and ask the AI for some ideas. 

Step 3: Finding the right gift idea.

For my scenario I asked the AI to show me gifts for my grandma, who enjoys the Baltimore Ravens, as well as the beach. Depicted below shows just two of the ten results that ChatGPT generated. 

In a very respectable manner I might add, the AI lists out multiple recommendations of gifts for me to consider for my Grandma and, honestly, this helped me out in a big way. Thanks, ChatGPT! 

Artificial Intelligence may not be all the movies have made it out to be. Perhaps, it isn’t here to take over the world, just give you some last-minute holiday shopping ideas! Your friends at Carroll Tech hope that this has given you some relief, as the holidays have snuck up on us fast. Please enjoy yourself this holiday season, and we will see you soon in the New Year!
