🍎 Apple’s Presentation Emotion Analysis Using AI
Apple, as usual, made a splash with their latest gadget, the mixed reality headset they're calling "Vision Pro."
Intrigued by Apple’s event, I ran the presentation transcript through my custom-tuned GPT model to figure out the emotions they were trying to stir up.
The custom model uses Plutchik’s Wheel of Emotions, which is a well-regarded emotion framework created by psychologist Robert Plutchik.
The framework suggests we've got eight core emotions: joy, trust, fear, surprise, sadness, disgust, anger, and anticipation.
Apple's main aim, it turns out, was to bring out joy.
👉 And not just bring out joy, but score really high on it!
Nice move, Apple 👏
After that came anticipation, trust, and a touch of surprise.
And the negative emotions like sadness, disgust, anger, and fear?
Completely absent. The model returned a big fat zero.
Apple really knows how to craft a presentation.

👩💻 Special Prompt - Restaurant Menu Healthy Choices 🍜
Picture this: You are sitting in your favorite restaurant, the kind that gives you a head-scratchingly tough time picking a dish because EVERYTHING looks oh-so-good.
Suddenly you're struck by the all-too-familiar health-conscious angel on your shoulder, reminding you to make a wise choice for your waistline. But there's a hitch - no calorie count on the menu!
🤯 Here's the exciting part.
You copy that tempting menu text (no matter how unstructured it is) and ask our smart pal, ChatGPT, to lend a hand.
Our prompt today uses ChatGPT’s brainy skills to examine each dish's name and description and magically cooks up the approximate calorie count.
Imagine that - a menu with a calorie count tailor-made for you!
But wait, there's more! 🚀
You know how we all have that one heart-healthy dish that we love?
Well, our prompt can go one step further.
By adding another column to your personalized menu, our prompt dishes out a glowing green heart emoji 💚 next to options that are not just delish but also kind to your ticker!
A feast for your taste buds, a treat for your heart, and no more guessing games about the calories - isn't that a food lover's dream come true?
Bon Appétit, my friends! 🍽️ 🌟
Act as a world class chef. I will give you unformatted restaurant menu text. You will give me back a table with the following: Name of the Dish, Price, Estimated Calories, Confidence in Calorie Estimation (Percent 0 - 100%), Heart Healthy Name of the dish and Price are part of the menu. You will come up with estimated calories. Use the dish's description to accurately estimate the calories in the dish. You will also put a 💚 in the Heart Healhty cell for the dish which is considered very healthy Below is the menu: """ <Menu text> """
A few things to note:
If the menu is too long, you can paste parts of the menu.
OpenAI says it is a best practice to provide input in 3 double-quotes - “““<data>“““</data>
Provide clear instructions. We list column-by-column what information we want ChatGPT to return.
For this prompt, I used ChatGPT 4.
Consider this prompt as a copilot to help with analysis and not to do the analysis.
Below is the menu text I used from BOQUERIA SOHO.

⚡️ Make Money with AI - Product Idea
Today, I have an extraordinary idea that could potentially change the way we think about a long-standing tradition – bedtime stories.
Bedtime stories have long been a staple in many households, a cherished nightly ritual that does more than usher little ones to sleep.
Over 30% of parents indulge in this intimate activity with their children every night.
And parents say reading kids bedtime stories is their favorite part of their day.
Experts suggest that reading for 15 - 20 minutes daily is pivotal for a child's cognitive and emotional development.
But here's the thing – while the tradition is timeless, the medium and content can certainly do with a touch of innovation.
That's where the idea comes in: "Dreamy Tales," a service that uses ChatGPT, an AI language model, to generate fresh, captivating bedtime stories for kids, delivered to parents daily.
At first glance, the MVP could be as simple as emailing the stories to the parents.
💰 With a nominal subscription fee - let's say $10 per month - parents get access to 30 brand-new tales every month.
It's an easy lift to create the product and an accessible cost for parents seeking quality content for their children.
🔥 But what makes this idea truly exceptional is the scalability and room for customization.
Once the audience grows and we establish a solid subscriber base, we can expand the service into an app. Parents can then provide details about their kids, helping to customize stories that resonate personally with each child.
👉 Imagine a kid being the superhero in their own bedtime story!
Additionally, we can incorporate illustrations into our stories. Services like Midjourney could be leveraged to create visually appealing images to bring the AI-crafted tales to life.
So, there you have it - a low-entry-barrier business idea with immense potential for scalability and profit.
👏 A perfect blend of tradition and technology, with a clear value proposition for a sizable, recurring customer base.

🎨 Human + AI Co-Created This :)
A human created the prompt. AI did the painting. 🤝
A breathtaking and dynamic portrait of majestic Dalmation, captured in it's prime as it races through a shallow, crystal clear river. The powerful canine is expertly photographed mid stride, showcasing it's muscular physique, detemination, and grace. The scene is expertly composed using a Nikon D850 DSLR camera, paired with Nikkor 70 - 200mm f/ 2. 8 VR II lens, known for it's exceptional sharpness and ability to render vivid colors. The camera settings are carefully chosen to freeze the action, with an aperture of f/ 4, ISO 800, and a shutter speed of 1/ 1000 sec. The background is a lush, verdant forest, softly blurred by the shallow depth of field, which places emphasis on the striking DALMATION. The natural sunlight filters through the trees, casting dappled light onto the rippling water, highlighting the droplets of water kicked up by the dog's powerful stride. This stunning, high resolution portrait captures the spirit and beauty of the Dalmation, immortalizing the moment in a captivating work of photographic art. --ar 4:5 --q 2 --v 5.1 --style raw
