1. Zoom Says it’s not spying on Your Calls for AI Training 📹
Zoom's been caught in the spotlight, but not for a hot new feature! The video-calling giant recently updated its terms of service after users raised eyebrows over fears that Zoom was training its AI models on customer calls. Zoom's now stressing that audio, video, and chats won't be used for AI without consent.
2. Meta shuts down protein project to focus on commercial AI ❌
Meta just got rid of a team that used AI to create the first database of more than 600mn protein structures. The move to terminate the scientific project comes as Meta prioritizes its money making efforts on generative AI products like Llama 2 and its text-to-audio tool.
3. Bing AI is expanding from Edge to Other Browsers 🌐
After launching its AI-powered search on Bing six months ago, Microsoft announced on Monday that it's expanding Bing's AI capabilities to third-party browsers like Apple's Safari and Google Chrome.

🤷♂️ What’s Going On and Why It Matters:
You’ve seen it or heard it before.
“ChatGPT can’t write like a human. It sounds robotic.”
Do us all a favor. Go find whoever said that.
The Tweet. The LinkedIn post. The article. Find it? OK. Now, go ahead and click unfollow/unlike/unsubscribe/you’re wrong.
The bad thing about the Internet and ChatGPT advice? People have no clue what they’re talking about.
Sure, we’re a bit biased. But, our host Jordan has written for major publications for more than 20 years and has penned for big brands like Nike and Jordan Brand.
And he cuts it straight when talking about ChatGPT being able to write like yourself. If you do it correctly, it’s entirely possible with about 90-95% accuracy in the tone of voice.
Don’t worry about that 5-10% drop-off, either. When you can 20X the output, you can spend a bit of time to tweak it to get it to 100%.
🦾How You Can Leverage:
Alright, if you gave us 27 minutes, then you’ve already been able to make ChatGPT write just like you.
Alright, let’s hammer it home with our 5 tips to make ChatGPT write like you.
Don’t make this mistake, grasshopper.
Sure, the free version of ChatGPT ain’t bad. But if you want ChatGPT to mirror your style, you should be using GPT4 in ChatGPT Plus. Yeah, it’s a $20 monthly subscription, but don’t expect GPT3 (the free version) to be able to accurately copy your style.
Also, when you’re inside ChatGPT Plus, make sure to start your conversation in plugins mode. If you don’t know plugins, you should probably check this guide.
This takeaway is simple - Start your journey in ChatGPT Plus with Plugins.
2 – Give access to writing samples ✍️
Yeah, that line above about plugins mode — here’s why. You’ll want to give ChatGPT access to samples of your writing. Buuuuuuut, ChatGPT can lose its memory pretty quickly when training it on your style. (See #5 below).
You’ll need to give ChatGPT access to your writing style, whether you do that in chat or through the use of plugins.
Give ChatGPT access to your writing style, whether through the chat interface or using Internet-connected plugins.
Going the latter route may be best for copying your brand voice, so feel free to direct ChatGPT to certain webpages, or a PDF of your best writing samples that demonstrate your unique style.
3 – Follow PPP best practices 📋
You really thought we’d get through a ChatGPT show and not shout out our free PPP course? Yeah right, shorties. Our Prime, Prompt, Polish method is always best for interacting with ChatGPT.
Look what these peeps said:
Reply PPP to this email. That’s it.
(Full disclosure, the whole ‘reply to this email and get access to this course’ option is on its last week. So, you’ll probably/definitely/most definitely wanna reply PPP now, while it’s still as simple as that.)
4 – Train ChatGPT as an employee 💼
This is a key emphasis of our PPP course, but here’s the skinny shorties: don’t expect copy-and-paste results. That’s not how a large language model like ChatGPT works.
While training ChatGPT on your writing style, it’s a back-and-forth affair. You’re coaching ChatGPT on your style, and providing guidance, feedback, and additional resources as you fine-tune ChatGPT’s outputs.
Think of your Chat with ChatGPT on your writing style as an employee. Be very clear in your expectations, give guidance and resources, and keep the scope very narrow.
Don’t try and train your chat on different brand voices, or even different outputs for your tone of voice. This training should be a dedicated chat on one very specific tone of voice.
5 – Keep memory in mind 🧠
Yeah, ChatGPT can forget stuff. Here’s how your training ChatGPT session might go. After some back and forth, ChatGPT will just GET you. It’s like looking in the mirror.
But then after a few dozen outputs, things are gonna start to get distant. Like when your best friend moves away in fourth grade. Byyyyye Dwight.
That’s because ChatGPT, like all LLMs, has a finite memory. After you hit the limit, your output will start to suffer. And ChatGPT will start to NOT sound like you anymore.
In our PPP course, we teach memory recall. Essentially, you’ll be asking ChatGPT to recap and summarize its directions and determined outputs every so often, as if to jog its memory.
Now This …
And just like that, you’ll have ChatGPT talking like you in no time!
No more “robotic copy” or “bad outputs.” Just quality content.
Oh and don’t forget…reply to this email with PPP!
