ChatGPT Guidelines The World… Or, At Least, The Residence

With all of the hype about ChatGPT, it has to have crossed your thoughts: how can I make it management units? On the utopia aspect, you could possibly say, “Hey, ChatGPT, work out what hours I’m normally residence and set the thermostat larger when I’m away.” On the dysfunctional aspect, the AI may lock you in your house and torment you want some horror film. We aren’t to both excessive but, however [Chris] couldn’t resist writing a ChatGPT plugin to control a Raspberry Pi. You possibly can see a video of the way it turned out under.

In line with [Chris], writing a ChatGPT plugin is definitely a lot easier than you suppose. You possibly can see within the video the AI can intuit what lights to activate and off primarily based in your exercise, and, in fact, many extra issues are attainable. It will possibly even detect loud night breathing.

In a little bit of self-referential work, ChatGPT really wrote a superb little bit of the code required. Right here’s the immediate:

Write me a Python Flask API to run on a Raspberry Pi and management some lights hooked up to GPIO pins.

I've the next lights:

Kitchen: pin 6
Bed room: pin 13
Eating desk: pin 19
Toilet: pin 26
Lounge: pin 5

I would like the next endpoints:

get lights - returns the record of lights together with their present state
submit toggle_light - switches a lightweight on or off

It additionally took the code and generated an OpenAPI file for it robotically. Fairly slick!

After all, that is simply the tip of the iceberg of what you could possibly do with a system like this. We’re each excited and a bit of nervous about what is going to occur when AI takes over extra real-world {hardware}.

As we’ve identified, ChatGPT is nice for tedious programming duties, however you do have to confirm that it’s getting issues proper. We aren’t going to be put out of labor by AI — no less than, not but.
