You need to configure OpenAI ChatGPT 4 plugins.

In this KB article, we will provide you with instructions on how to configure and use OpenAI ChatGPT 4 plugins for various usage scenarios, including the generation of text, code, images, audio and video. First we will configure all required ChatGPT 4 plugins and then we will execute each scenario by asking a ChatGPT prompt, which will execute the desired scenario.

The is also available in audio format on my podcast at https://podcasters.spotify.com/pod/show/cloudcomputingschool/episodes/How-to-configure-OpenAI-ChatGPT-4-plugins-e29kqe1.

Click on the “New Chat” button on the top left hand corner to create a new ChatGPT 4 chat session and choose the GPT 4 “Plugins” mode at the middle top.

Click on the drop-down control which says “No plugins enabled”, in order to enable the plugins we will be using in this tutorial. In order to activate any plugins you need, scroll all the way down and click on “Plugin Store”.

In the plugin store you can browse all available ChatGPT 4 plugins by category and search by keyword. For example, if you search for “Powerpoint” you will get a list of popular Powerpoint-related plugins. By clicking on the “Install” button, you will either have the plugin installed right away, or you may be redirected to the plugin’s developer website for registering for an account with them before using the plugin inside the ChatGPT 4 environment.

In our tutorial, we have searched for and activated the following plugins:

  1. Slide maker
  2. Diagrams Show me
  3. Wolfram
  4. Video summary
  5. Movie night

Bear in mind that a total of only 3 plugins can be enabled at each given prompt. This means we will have to enable the necessary plugins before providing our ChatGPT prompt for each scenario. Each scenario will run in its own chat session, with its own plugins enabled.

We will start with scenario number 1, using the Slidemaker Powerpoint generation plugin. Take the time to check the necessary plugins for this prompt, at the top of your ChatGPT 4 session.

Type the following prompt:
Create a Powerpoint presentation which will pitch a startup business idea to a board of CEOs about a new AI startup company which creates specialized ChatGPT plugins. Do not provide any technical or other justification or analysis, only provide the requested output.

Wait for ChatGPT 4 to generate its output. You may have to wait longer, depending on the ChatGPT model performance and the amount of information requested.

Now moving on to scenario number 2, using the “Diagrams Show me” plugin. Take the time to check the necessary plugins for this prompt, at the top of your ChatGPT 4 session.

Type the following prompt:
Create a visual diagram in the form of a mind map with all types of Artificial Intelligence models, organized hierarhically by categories and subcategories. Use different colors for each top category. Do not provide any technical or other justification or analysis, only provide the requested output.

Wait for ChatGPT 4 to generate its output. You may have to wait longer, depending on the ChatGPT model performance and the amount of information requested.

Next is scenario number 3, using the Wolfram plugins. Take the time to check the necessary plugins for this prompt, at the top of your ChatGPT 4 session.

Type the following prompt:
Create a plot about math equation f(x)=x^3+4x^2-2. For the x axis, use a range of 0 to 10 and use increments of 0.5.

Wait for ChatGPT 4 to generate its output. You may have to wait longer, depending on the ChatGPT model performance and the amount of information requested.

Following up is scenario number 4, using the Video Summary plugin. Take the time to check the necessary plugins for this prompt, at the top of your ChatGPT 4 session.

Type the following prompt:
Generate a video summary for the following youtube video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pmzZF2EnKaA. Do not provide any technical or other justification or analysis, only provide the requested output.

Wait for ChatGPT 4 to generate its output. You may have to wait longer, depending on the ChatGPT model performance and the amount of information requested.

Last but not least is scenario number 5, using the “Movie Night” plugin. Take the time to check the necessary plugins for this prompt, at the top of your ChatGPT 4 session.

Type the following prompt:
Create a table which will include a list of the 3 most popular Artificial Intelligence related movies of all times. For each movie, also provide a link to its video trailer in Youtube. Do not provide any technical or other justification or analysis, only provide the requested output.

Wait for ChatGPT 4 to generate its output. You may have to wait longer, depending on the ChatGPT model performance and the amount of information requested.

Now before closing this tutorial, let’s ask ChatGPT to provide us with a list of the best possible plugins for training and education.

Provide me with a list of ChatGPT plugins which are rated by the Internet community as the most efficient for online training and education. Present this plugin list in a tabular format with 3 columns. First column must include the plugin name, second column a detailed description of the plugin’s functionality and third column must include the URL of the plugin’s software vendor.
