Writing texts, creating presentations, generating images: Artificial intelligences are ingenious companions for everyday life. How do you get the most out of them? Find out in this article!

AI application in studies

There are quite a few opportunities to use artificial intelligences in your studies. In the following tasks, AIs will support you effectively.

Research and write texts

This is what ChatGPT, neuroflash, Jasper & Co. have become known for: researching in a structured way and creating text drafts. This saves you a lot of time in the preparatory work.

But be careful: if you think you can submit the AI texts to your university as your own intellectual output – for example, in the form of term papers – be warned: they may be plagiarized, and most universities now have fairly effective AI text scanners. Read our article on ChatGPT and copyright, it deals with this topic more intensively.

Personalized learning with AI learning platforms and AI tutors

In the meantime, there are much better learning methods than binge learning, for example, with which you can acquire knowledge. You can get an additional learning boost by using AI learning platforms such as KI-Campus that match your learning type.

Are you a communicative learner? Then the exchange with chatbots and voice assistants will benefit you. Do you prefer the learning content to be audiovisual so that you can remember it well? In this case, video courses are excellent. Check out our article on the topic to find out which learning type you are.

You can also use AI platforms to create learning plans. You can even have learning plans put together for several days with different focuses.

AI tutors refine and intensify the learning process. They answer subject-specific questions and work with you to create curricula that fit your learning style. They also provide tips and feedback on your learning progress. And unlike a human tutor, the AI tutor is available to you 24/7.

Create presentations

Presentations are part of everyday study, for example during lectures. Popular AIs for presentations are, for example, Decktopus, Simplified or Plus AI. A classic slide presentation can be created quickly with SlidesAI, while Synthesia is suitable for fancy video presentations.

Do you want to add original images to your presentations? Image generators like Midjourney, Stable Diffusion, neuroflash or DALL-E 2 will help you. Tell the AI which graphics you need and it will provide you with the appropriate images.

Shorten monotonous work processes

In your studies, there are some tasks that consist of pure routine and just eat up time.

With KI you can automate the following tasks or have them supported:

  • Exam preparation in general
  • Data analysis
  • Creation of reports
  • Research

Also, use AI tools like Deepl or Google Translate to translate texts. You’ll certainly find it easier to read a text that you translate from academic English into your native language, for example.

Another strength of AI is data collection and presentation. If you’ve already collected data, for example in a survey or study, use AI to visualize it in the form of charts or to identify relevant patterns in the data and create meaningful reports.

AI capabilities that are valuable for the world of work

Two paths are particularly important for the use of artificial intelligence for companies: developing your own AI and working effectively with existing AI. For most companies, especially medium-sized ones, the second option is likely to be particularly exciting.

But it’s not just large companies that are developing AIs; smaller startups are also recognizing the value of developing their own. There will probably be many overlap and transfer processes in this direction in the working world: Many companies will initially rely on third-party AI and develop their own AI in parallel, provided the investment is worthwhile. The following capabilities and application possibilities are useful for both paths.

Understanding and speaking the language of AI

This does not mean programming languages, but the ability to feed AI with data, information and commands in such a way that the desired, high-quality results emerge. There is even a separate job description for this: the so-called AI Prompter, or internationally AI Prompter.

The AI or AI Prompter has perfected the communication with artificial intelligences, so that he achieves customized results for companies – and is paid excellently for it. If you don’t want to become a prompter, the ability to communicate effectively with AI will be in high demand outside of this job description.

Developing corporate strategy with AI

It is important for companies to recognize industry trends as well as social developments at an early stage. But even if several employees were to collect, filter and evaluate news every day, it would only be possible to gain a rough overview at best.

This is precisely where artificial intelligences come in: They perform what would overburden humans and can make forecasts based on patterns that emerge from a wide variety of information sources.

They are by no means error-free, but they do help to keep important developments on the radar screen and highlight trends that decision-makers in companies can use to steer a course. Thus, AI will also be essential for risk management in order to identify threats, competitors, etc. at an early stage and to be able to take action.

Increase efficiency with AI

In our market economy, companies are constantly working to optimize their processes: Workflows are to be accelerated, communication paths shortened, errors detected and costs saved. Artificial intelligences are excellent at identifying opportunities for improvement in work processes and taking over monotonous tasks.

This includes, for example, regularly creating reports, writing standard emails and creating templates, guides, etc. This is not about completely replacing employees. With the use of AIs, they can use their valuable time to subject AI-created content and automated work processes to quality control.

This is particularly helpful with self and time management tools such as Wrike or ToDoIst, which already work with AI.

Customer service with AI

Years ago, chatbots already helped to handle customer inquiries. Today, artificial intelligences have literally become smarter in order to respond even more precisely and individually to personalized customer inquiries. From a mere chatbot, AI is thus becoming a personal customer assistant, available around the clock with helpful answers.

Furthermore, well-trained AIs are able to evaluate customer moods and profiles in such a way that possible disagreements as well as buying interests can be identified. Depending on the mood, the AI can then forward the customer to its own online store, for example, or to a human employee who will process the request.

Human Resource Management with AI

A key issue for companies is finding and recruiting employees. AI helps HR management to create profiles of desired employees and to formulate job advertisements based on these profiles. Artificial intelligence is also helpful in evaluating job applications, as well as in vacation planning and other HR issues.

In times of a shortage of skilled workers, artificial intelligences close another crucial gap: They ensure high employee satisfaction through constant analysis, evaluation and process automation, which in turn promotes employee retention.

Furthermore, AIs are useful from the business side to identify employee productivity and their performance peaks. This allows company leaders to create promotion and development plans that are customized for each employee.

In short, AI will greatly simplify recruitment, onboarding, and human resources as a whole.

Marketing with AI

The basis and the strength of AI for successful marketing are the analyses of collected data in order to effectively reach one’s own target groups. Artificial intelligences also help with subsequent processes, such as the creation of marketing campaigns.

AIs continuously optimize and control campaigns so that they are automated and marketers can focus on other processes, such as strategic marketing goals. Do you want to increase awareness of your brand or boost sales? Any marketing goal can be advanced in collaboration with artificial intelligence.

Other AI-relevant processes

In the near future, every area of business will be impacted by or with AI:

  • Security (especially IT security)
  • Database creation (e.g., customer databases or knowledge bases as in-house “wikis”)
  • Delivery & production (supply chain optimization, more efficient production lines, etc.)
  • Control of finances
  • Research and development

Conclusion: The time to engage with AI is now

Some students and employees think they still have a lot of time before they have to deal with artificial intelligence. A mistake! AI such as ChatGPT, DALL-E 2, Midjourney, beautiful, Jasper, Google Bard, etc. are already being used at universities and in companies. We advise: Don’t oversleep this development, but use the currently so exciting time to learn how to use AI, as these skills are valuable assets for your career and can already help you in your studies.

In the future, specialists will be needed to get the most out of artificial intelligence. How convenient that you have already learned to trigger, automate and optimize processes with AI in your studies!
