When we think of Artificial Intelligence (AI), we generally see the big picture. And there’s nothing wrong with that, but what most people fail to see is that it can also be applied in a practical way to everyday problems. Whether it’s doing competitor research or writing an essay, you can let AI handle the heavy lifting!

It’s important to not only learn what AI is, but also how you can leverage it in everyday use cases. OpenAI is a company that is pushing the boundaries in making AI more beneficial to everybody. In this article, we’ll talk about how you can use OpenAI for automating repetitive tasks in everyday life.

Top 8 OpenAI Bardeen automations

Founded in 2015, OpenAI’s mission is to “ensure that artificial general intelligence benefits all of humanity.” You might’ve heard of some of their products like ChatGPT and DALL·E 2. At their core, these apps mimic human intelligence by analyzing gargantuan amounts of data.

Using intuitive automations, Bardeen is making it much easier to leverage OpenAI’s cutting-edge technology for automating repetitive tasks and solving everyday problems. It’s a workflow automation extension for Chrome.

Now, let’s go through eight useful OpenAI automations you can try out right now!

1. Create a draft reply to the currently opened email using OpenAI

According to a McKinsey study, the average professional spends around 28% of the workweek managing e-mail! Whether you are a zero-email devotee or not, this automation can help you save time by automatically creating an email response using OpenAI.

If you want help in drafting an email, you can try out this automation.

2. Send the summary of an email to Slack

Forwarding an email is easy enough, but what if you want to share it with your colleague or team on Slack? This automation will summarize the email for you with GPT3 and send it to a user on Slack, all in one go.

You’ll need to pick the email (using subject line) from your Gmail account and specify the username of the person on Slack you want to send it to. Once done, let it run and do its magic!

3. Get sentiment analysis from a Twitter account's tweets

Whether for customer feedback or finding influencers, getting a quick sentiment analysis of a Twitter profile can come in handy. With this automation, you can save the time it’ll take for you to go through a profile yourself.

4. Get a summary of the current page using OpenAI

When it comes to the Internet, it’s often a challenge to cut through all the fluff and get to the real information you’re looking for. This automation will scrape text from a webpage and use OpenAI’s GPT3 to summarize it for you.

Using the Builder, you can also edit this automation as you wish!‍ If you’re a content creator and want to repurpose your blog post as a tweet, you can send the summarized version to a colleague on Gmail or your team on Slack.

If you want to save the summarized version of the page to Notion, use this automation. You can try out this automation if there are questions on the page that you want to get answered.

5. Create an AI-composed essay based on someone's tweets

Twitter is a great place for new and exciting ideas. Unfortunately, due to its character limit, it’s difficult to fully flesh out and explore the depths of those ideas on the platform.

With this automation, you can use OpenAI to analyze a Twitter profile’s tweets and compose an essay based on any topic you want. Once done, the resulting essay will be displayed in a Google Doc! Here it is in action.
