  • A neural network can predict the smell of chemicals by analyzing their molecular structures, often matching human descriptions.

  • The AI system was designed to explore correlations between chemical structures and odors, identifying around 250 such connections, which are used to make a Principal Odour Map (POM).

  • Testing the POM with human volunteers showed the AI's predictions were often closer to the average human response than any individual guess.

  • Critics note that while the POM can be useful in industries like food and cleaning products, it doesn't provide insights into the biology behind the human sense of smell.

  • OpenAI is on track to exceed revenue projections, possibly generating $1 billion within the next year, compared to its own estimate of $200 million.

  • Current revenue streams include corporate licensing and individual subscriptions costing $20/month. Between 1 million and 2 million subscribers are currently active.

  • Notable corporate clients include Microsoft, Block, Canva, and PwC. OpenAI recently launched an enterprise version of ChatGPT.

  • OpenAI's financial success raises questions about its current valuation of $27-29 billion. The company also has an agreement that allows Microsoft to claim 75% of its profits until a $13 billion investment is recouped.

  • Visits to ChatGPT have declined by 29.15% since May 2023, contradicting media narratives of exponential growth.

  • Two theories examined: A) Decline due to educational use dropping off in summer; B) Professional/regular use still high. Both were invalidated by the data.

  • Programming assistance constitutes 30% of ChatGPT use, with education and content creation also being significant use-cases.

  • Common words in ChatGPT sessions include "Write," "Create," and surprisingly, "SEO" and "Game," indicating a variety of professional and personal applications.

This might seem obvious, but a super simple way to get an article written around a particular SEO keyword is to to just ask ChatGPT to do it! Just make sure to tailor the article to your constraint as in the example below, and off you go!

I want you to write an article around the SEO keyword "[keyword]" about 750-1000 words in length. Make sure to use appropriate header tags. Keep paragraphs short for easy eyeballing while reading, and don't use more than 3 sections.
