What is ChatGPT Code Interpreter?
I feel as if the no-code era really is taking shape with how GitHub Copilot, Google PaLM and things like ChatGPT code interpreter are changing how developers work.
So Tweet threads like this one really catch my attention.
I’m seeing a lot of the same observations on YouTube as well who sound bullish about what the ChatGPT Code Interpreter Plugin can do.
So some folks are hyping this Code Interpreter as a no-code tool for example, for marketing or product folk who don’t know how to code. Take a look:
The latest ChatGPT code interpreter is a plugin that allows users to run Python code within a chat session with ChatGPT. It also supports file uploads and downloads, and several Python modules. It is an experimental feature that is available to a limited number of users and developers.
“This Changes Everything”
Even for Data scientists I think this plugin could have some utility.
ChatGPT plugins of course, have a lot of potential.
The Code Interpreter plugin appears to be helpful for those interested in web development. OpenAI introduces plugin for ChatGPT that unlocks ability to access web content.
The ability to have ChatGPT complete tasks with information from the Internet is a feature that users have long wanted because the current model contains data that is current only up to 2021.
Ethan Mollick ofis someone that appears especially bullish on ChatGPT's programming and web capabilities. He makes some lucid points at the rate these things are evolving at. While “prompt engineering” hacks are a cool thing in early 2023, they soon might not exist that is LLMs might be paired together in that Auto GPT and GPT agent trend that makes it a redundant skill.
Some a claiming that Code Interpreter may be the “most useful” ChatGPT plugin of them all so far:
The newest ChatGPT plugin is the most powerful feature OpenAI has released since GPT-4.
Many believe that GPT-4 is the breakthrough moment for A.I. becoming more useful in terms of mass adoption, whether that’s with ChatGPT or something it leads to.
Whatever the case may be people like Ethan are hyping or are enthusiastic about the possibilities here.
In Aakash Gupta’s thread he goes over many potential utilities of how we could use Code Interpreter. Things like:
Segment your customers in seconds
Decompose seasonality simply via text
Linear regression by itself
Easy Geo Charts
Basic descriptive charts in seconds
Graph public data without input
Automatic Radar Charts
Heatmaps With Ease
Output the log chart automatically, and others.
These sound vaguely like they might be useful for Data visualization and some tasks done by data scientists.
I think the full potential of the Code Interpreter Plugin might become known in the weeks ahead. But, I just wanted to let you know in case it’s something you might have an interest in playing around with (when it becomes more widely available).
A lot of the Twitter and LinkedIn A.I. grifters appear to have gotten the same memo.
GPT-4 is the new data scientist
With the new OpenAI code interpreter model, you just have to upload the data and provide instructions in simple english. The model does everything from cleaning data to generating insightful visualizations on autopilot!!
Usually I wouldn’t be intrigued, but this does sound potentially useful at scale. Source. I’m not usually a big fan of the ChatGPT prompting guides and profiteers.
A simple search on Twitter revealed that Akash and Ethan weren’t the only ones, there’s a whole army of people talking about this topic right now.
Another Twitter character said Code Interpreter could do the following:
Analyze your data with ease
Visualize your CSV data
Basic Video Editing
Music Market Segmentation
Color Palette Extractor & Image Compressor
Create Animated GIFs Easily
I’m not sure how ‘useful’ any of these things are but the PR marketing campaign for ChatGPT is 24/7 on Twitter these days.
Thanks for reading!
