Try AI right now

If you have yet to actually use an AI chat system, you are in for a surprise. 

I will be writing up how the magic bit of GPTs relates to work I started more than thirty years ago. My work makes me think that current AI has found the magic I was looking for and that magic is very magic indeed. If what has been found is what it appears to be, there is much, much more magic to come, and it is almost certain to come much more quickly than people think. These systems are helpful already if you know how to use them, but they are going to be absolutely indispensable before the end of the year. It's moving that fast. 

Here is the prompt I gave Poe:  

Can you write quick step by step instructions for a new user to set up with, and give a few examples an ordinary person new to AI would enter as prompts and what they could expect?

Here is Poe's response:

Certainly! Here are step-by-step instructions for a new user to set up an account with

Visit the website: Open your web browser and go to

Update -- other websites:

Choose your preferred login method: You have the option to continue with Google, continue with Apple, or use your phone. Select the method that you're most comfortable with.

Agree to Poe's Terms of Service and Privacy Policy: Read through the terms of service and privacy policy, and if you agree with them, click on the checkbox or button indicating your acceptance.

Sign up or log in: If you're a new user, you'll need to create an account by providing the required information, such as your name, email address, and a password. If you already have an account, simply log in using your credentials.

Set up your profile: Once you've logged in, you may have the option to set up your profile. This step is usually optional but can provide a more personalized experience.

Explore the chat interface: After completing the registration process, you'll be directed to the chat interface. This is where you can interact with Poe and ask questions or provide prompts.

Examples of prompts for an ordinary person new to AI:

"What is artificial intelligence?"

"How can AI be used in everyday life?"

"Tell me about the latest advancements in AI technology."

"Can you explain machine learning in simple terms?"

"What are the ethical considerations surrounding AI?"

When entering these prompts, you can expect Poe to provide helpful and informative responses based on its training and knowledge. It can explain concepts, provide examples, and offer insights related to the field of artificial intelligence. Remember that Poe's responses are generated based on pre-existing data and may not always reflect real-time information or current events.
