Once, a long time ago, a shovel was a marvel of modern technology. Today, a shovel is $3.99 at the hardware store. Who says the same won't happen with robotics ?

Automate research and learning on any topic with custom podcasts

We're building an AI tool that creates podcasts on any topic by doing online research for you.

You can use it for free at anytopic.io.

You simply provide a description (prompt) and the tool will do research online to find content related to the topic you're looking to learn about. It will use one or multiple sites (news articles, blogs, social media, etc.) to create your episode. This is usually a 3-20 min podcast depending on the topic.

We found this to be a great way to do research on very specific topics and learn about them. This can be a question, something you saw online that was interesting, topics related to your work or just news. For instance, you can ask for interesting content related to automation or robotics or something more specific within that. I use it every day to learn about multiple topics without having to read or do online research on these. If it sounds interesting or you have any questions I'd love to hear your thoughts.

How should I execute this? I need Chat GPT to Analyze and Summarize a ton of URLs.

I have a Google sheet of URL's (300 to 400 in total).

  1. I need Chat GPT to visit each URL, analyze and summarize whatever is inside the link, (which might include additional info like features, benefits, & capabilities).
  2. Place the summary + additional info into a new Google sheet.
  3. Chat GPT will go to the next URL, rinse and repeat the process until every every URL is visited, summarized, and fill the new Google Sheet.

How should I execute this?

This would really help me out, thanks!

Automation of my work

So, I want to know if my work can be automated, basically, I have a google sheet where in every row I have, clients name, clients email, what he wants to sell, all obviously on different columns, and on the next row my boss writes what to do with this client. Basically there are different options based on what my boss writes on his column, but all the options involve sending emails. One of the options involves putting what he wants to sell on a different list in a email draft, all the other ones involve sending him a email, that I already have written out for all scenarios, to the email of the client. I wanted to know if I could automate this, and if someone is willing to help me or do it for me as a commission please DM me or help me out in the comments.

Automation in Data Entry || Regulatory Department of a Telecommunications Company


I just accepted a job as a Data Entry Specialist for a telecommunications company and I am working in their regulatory department. I am looking to automate processes in my new role and I figured this is the right sub to ask.

I am tasked to read a wide array of Regulatory documents and update the data in company systems. I am essentially performing data scrubbing on company databases. The problem is that the documents are all in pdf format. Worst yet, some of these documents are essentially images in pdf format and some are quite old like from 30 years ago.

One example is site surveys done by different environmental consulting companies so the layouts and formats vary depending on time-period of the survey and the company that is doing it. This is just one type of document I am expected to handle.

There is no standardized format or layout of the documents I am reviewing.

Is there a way to automate this process?

Embedded Text and Vector Database in OpenAi Prompt

Hi, I was wondering if any of you fine people have successfuly used embedded texts and vector databases in your prompts? Reason I’m asking is, I have templates and guidelines that I need to feed the model, however, if I include them in the prompt, it would be too long. I’ve read about embedding texts and having a vector database can help with this situation.

I would appreciate if you can provide any insight about this.

Searching for a Bot that can download files from links

I am searching for a bot that, given some links, it can download the files from it. The only thing is that the website I am downloading the files from, has a limit of one download at a time. So this bot should start the new download only when the previous one has finished. Is there a bot that can perform that? Thanks
