I have been studying machine learning and AI for years, but the past 2 years have been an amazing amount of progress and innovation such as ChatGPT for Dall-E from OpenAI.
Using OpenAI’s Plus subscription ($20 a month), I was able to create a custom GPT named Autodesk Support Helper.
A custom GPT (Generative Pre-trained Transformer), like ChatGPT, is a version of the GPT model that has been tailored or customized for specific applications or use cases. These customizations can be made in various ways, depending on the requirements of the task or the preferences of the users. You do not need to be a subscriber to use a custom GPT, but to create a new GPT or use more advanced ChatGPT features and more up to date models you need to pony up the $20.
This Virtual Autodesk Support Helper, offers tips, automation help, and coached training for Autodesk products. It uses content from the web and learnings abstracted from that content to offer helpful info to trouble shoot issues or learn new skills for Autodesk products like AutoCAD, Fusion 360, and Revit.

Of course, like with anything, always check your output for accuracy For the most part the output in the latest GPT4 has been really good and better than perhaps spinning out in a deep forum wading through hundreds of posts to find an answer or advice.
You can with the GPT Plus even have it listen to your voice ands have a conversation with it even on your mobile or have it identify what is in a photo or capture the text from an image and translate it. Alexa and Siri cant event come close to this handy little AI helper. One more of the great ways to use ChatGPT is using it to critique your grammar and help you make it more concise, clear, and on tone.
I see AI as a helpful tool, not a replacement for our work.
