China's ChatGPT Opportunists and Grifters: Unleashing Their Skills for Profit

ChatGPT Opportunists

Right present, competition for jobs in China is severe. David struggled to find work after graduating from college with a business concentration earlier this year. There were too many applications for each position, and "even if you find a job, the pay is not as good as previous years, and you have to work long hours," he says.

After seeing several videos on Weibo and WeChat about ChatGPT, the generative artificial intelligence chatbot released to much excitement late last year by the US tech startup OpenAI, David—who requested anonymity to speak openly about his business—was struck with an idea. In China, there is a growing essay-writing industry, with students seeking tutoring and expert assistance with their schoolwork. Brokers using the ecommerce platform Taobao recruit writers, who then offer their services to students. What if, David reasoned, he could use ChatGPT to compose essays? He contacted one of the Taobao dealers. He promptly acquired his first job, writing a paper for an education student. He didn't tell anyone he was interacting with a chatbot.

According to David, "you first ask ChatGPT to design a layout with a few list items, and then you ask ChatGPT to come up with content for each list item." To avoid obvious plagiarism, he avoided feeding existing articles or papers into the chatbot and instead posed open-ended queries. He chose longer sentences and requested that ChatGPT elaborate and provide examples. He then went over the piece and corrected any grammatical issues. The outcome wasn't perfect, and there were a few logical gaps between paragraphs, but it was sufficient to accomplish the job. He turned it in and earned $10. His second task was to compose an economics paper. He read over the specifications, picked out a few key terms like "dichotomy," and asked ChatGPT to explain and provide instances of these terms. He earned about $40.

Chinese users do not have official access to ChatGPT. Emails with Chinese domains, such as QQ or 163, are not permitted to join up for the service. Nonetheless, there is a lot of excitement about the system's potential. Youdao, a renowned online education provider run by NetEase, recently launched an online course: "ChatGPT, from entry to proficiency," offering to "increase your work efficiency by 10 times with the help of ChatGPT and Python." Users inquire on Zhihu, China's quora, a forum website where questions are created and answered, "how to make the first pot of gold using "How to Make RMB1,000 Using ChatGPT"; and "How Can Ordinary People Make Money Using ChatGPT? When I asked ChatGPT how to make $100, it responded that the response was content. There is a lot of information.

Yin Yin, a young woman who has worked as a content creation assistant for a few social media celebrities, discovered ChatGPT after seeing a viral YouTube video. She discovered a Taobao store offering home decor utilising traditional Yunnan tie-dye techniques in April. She approached the owner and offered to help him update the layout and promote it on social media. She claims that the store's product descriptions were vague and lacked in clarity. She discovered the most popular Taobao home decor goods, retrieved their product descriptions, and fed them into ChatGPT for future reference.

She instructed ChatGPT to emphasise a few product characteristics and add a few emojis to make the content more appealing to the younger generation in order to make it more eye-catching. The Taobao shop owner now pays her weekly.

Others are employing AI for purposes other than product descriptions. Shirley, who desired to be recognised only by her first name because she writes under the pen name Guyuetu on the fashion and lifestyle sharing platform Little Red Book (Xiaohongshu), published a whole book written entirely by AI.

She settled on the topic of blood type and personality (a pseudoscientific concept that is rather widespread in Japan and Korea). She asked ChatGPT to "generate an outline for a book about Japanese people's perspectives on blood type and personality," and then used it to build an overview for each chapter, and then distinct sections for each chapter. If you don't like what was written, you can always ask ChatGPT to change it. For example, she could change a passage to use a more relaxed, casual tone. makes sense of. Within two days, she completed "The Little Book of Blood Type Personality: The Japanese Way of Understanding People," with a cover and graphics made by Midjourney, a service that generates visuals from text prompts.
