5 ways ChatGPT will make your life in IT easier

Written by Nuskha Semaun on 11 April 2023 for Graduates

Have you heard about ChatGPT? It’s the latest innovation that has caused a global buzz, both positive and negative, as all new things tend to do. However, there’s no denying that it’s pretty impressive. At its core, ChatGPT is a tool that can assist us with daily tasks, and it has been disrupting various sectors, including the tech industry. In this blog post, we’ll explore some of the IT use cases of ChatGPT, but before we delve into that, let’s catch up those of you who haven’t heard of ChatGPT, you know, those who have been living under a rock.

ChatGPT what?

ChatGPT, the natural language processing (NLP) tool developed by OpenAI, has taken the world by storm since its launch in November 2022, with millions of users already on board. ChatGPT stands for “Generative Pre-trained Transformer,” and it’s a language model trained on a massive amount of data that can generate human-like responses to text input. With its deep learning algorithm, ChatGPT can analyze text input, understand context and meaning, and produce appropriate, natural-sounding responses. What’s even more impressive is that it can handle a variety of tasks, from answering simple questions to generating creative writing and solving complex math problems. As the model continues to learn and improve with each iteration, its knowledge base expands, making it even more effective. In fact, the paragraph you just read was generated by ChatGPT itself! Pretty amazing, right? Now that you have an idea of what ChatGPT is all about, let’s explore the 5 most common IT applications of ChatGPT.

#1 Coding

While ChatGPT isn’t trained specifically for writing code, it can still help you with coding tasks. This AI tool can translate between programming languages, explain complex code, and answer questions related to programming. With an impressive 570 GB of ingested data, ChatGPT can write scripts quickly and easily and provide step-by-step explanations of its actions. However, keep in mind that it’s not a software engineer or developer, and can’t fix errors that weren’t seen in its training data (at least for now). Blogger and technical writer David Amos explains this well in his use case, “The era of the programmer is not over. But the landscape is changing.” Check it out for more insights.

#2 Debugging

ChatGPT is one of the best tools for automatically debugging code. Its secret weapon? The power of conversation! Unlike other AI models, ChatGPT can chat with humans, improving the accuracy of its answers. A study by researchers at Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz and University College London put ChatGPT to the test against QuixBugs 40 Python-only problems, and it scored an impressive 77.5% success rate in follow-up interactions. (source: NewScientist) That’s where ChatGPT’s true strength lies: its unique ability to converse with humans gives it an edge over other models. But does it save developers time or create more work? That’s still up for debate since it still requires a lot of human input.

#3 Developing apps

App development is a tough nut to crack, requiring expertise across multiple domains. So, can ChatGPT handle such a complex task? The answer is yes, but… the output generated by ChatGPT requires human analysis and refinement. It cannot generate the entire source code for an app at once, it can only provide step-by-step instructions. You won’t be able to create media content, images or audio. And so on. It is however a very useful assistant to help you write prompts for other tools you use for app building. Curious to see ChatGPT in action?

#4 A/B testing

Looking to optimize your platform or app? A/B testing is a highly effective method for determining which versions of an asset perform better based on specific metrics. It gives you valuable insights into user behavior and helps you to make data-driven decisions. And guess what? ChatGPT can help! The tool allows you to quickly and easily create and analyze different versions. Additionally, ChatGPT’s algorithms can help you identify patterns and trends in user behavior that may not be immediately apparent, providing a deeper understanding of your audience.

#5 SQL queries

Let’s be honest, unstructured data is… blah, so why not delegate the task to a tool like ChatGPT? It can generate SQL queries that transform unstructured data into structured data, making it easier to analyze. The question is, can it do a better job than you? A data analyst and analytics engineer put ChatGPT to the test in a SQL query writing challenge. Spoiler alert: Junior data analysts can breathe easy for now ;-). Check out the results.


ChatGPT is undeniably a powerful tool, but it can’t perform well without human interaction. And the truth is, it’s becoming an indispensable part of our daily tasks too. With its ability to revolutionize the way we allocate time and resources, ChatGPT can make our jobs easier and more productive. And this is just the beginning! As its features continue to expand, we’re excited to witness the endless possibilities that lie ahead. So, take ChatGPT for a spin – if you haven’t done so already – and let us know what you think!
