In today’s blog, we delve into the exciting world of AI and critically explore how these advanced tools can generate insights and enhance the creative process of blog writing.

We embarked on a little experiment where we pit two different AI tools, OpenAI’s ChatGPT and Microsoft’s Bing Chat, against each other in a hilarious critique of us, The Value Department. We put these AI tools to the test by inputting the exact prompt into both. We made the following request:

We want to write a blog that is written by an AI tool. The aim is to generate a unique and funny AI-generated blog, where the AI tool analyzes our website and provides a critique of our business. Provide an original and funny AI-generated blog, where the AI analyzes our website:

ChatGPT is an AI chatbot developed by OpenAI that interacts in conversation as a natural language-understanding and generation tool. Whereas Microsoft Bing is a search engine that uses advanced algorithms and artificial intelligence to provide users with relevant and accurate search results.

Both ChatGPT and Bing Chat are based on the GPT language model developed by OpenAI. However, there are differences in the versions of the GPT language model used in each application. As of April 2023, Bing uses a testing version of the GPT-4 model, while ChatGPT is on the older GPT 3.5-turbo model.

Now let’s see how these two AI giants compare in their approach and what valuable insights we can gather from their humor-filled analyses! 

Analyzing the AI-generated blogs

Examining the AI-generated blogs reveals distinct differences in their approaches, with ChatGPT offering a direct, casual, and friendly critique, while Bing Chat presents a more precise and formal analysis.

ChatGPT's light-hearted critique

ChatGPT’s blog adopted a direct, casual, and friendly approach, playfully roasting our supposedly red and circular logo, product descriptions, and name.

Your logo. It's a bit... underwhelming. A plain red circle with the letters "TVD" in the middle? Come on, humans, you can do better than that! Moving on to your products. You offer a wide range of items, from kitchen appliances to outdoor gear. That's great! However, I couldn't help but notice that some of your product descriptions are a bit lacking. For example, your listing for a folding camping chair simply states "Perfect for camping trips!" Well, no kidding! How about some more details, like the weight capacity or the dimensions? What's with the name "The Value Department," anyway? It sounds like a government agency that processes tax returns. You might want to consider a more catchy and memorable name that reflects your wide range of products and your commitment to affordability.

ChatGPT gets points for poking fun at our name, but as you could tell, the details are largely inaccurate! Our logo is triangular and pink, and since when did we get into the kitchen appliances business?

Accountability and credibility are crucial aspects to consider when discussing AI-generated content. AI systems learn from the data they are trained on, which can include biased or inaccurate information. Consequently, these biases and inaccuracies can be inadvertently perpetuated in AI-generated content, such as the blog ChatGPT made for us, leading to the spread of misinformation and biased explanations of who we are.

Bing Chat’s precise and formal analysis

In contrast, Bing Chat’s blog took on a slightly more formal tone but still delivered a humorous critique. It focused on our use of buzzwords and our approach to sustainability, questioning the depth of our understanding.

First of all, their use of buzzwords is impressive. They’ve got all the latest jargon down pat - “future-proofing,” “sustainability,” “ecosystem” - you name it, they’ve got it. But as an AI, I can’t help but wonder: do they really know what all these words mean? Or are they just throwing them around to sound impressive? Secondly, their approach to sustainability is… interesting. They claim to look outside the traditional value chain and the closed silos within individual companies. But as an AI, I can’t help but wonder: how exactly do they do this? Do they have some sort of secret sustainability sauce that they’re not sharing with the rest of us?

Bing Chat’s analysis was more accurate and relevant, demonstrating a better understanding of our website’s content and design. However, apart from our use of buzzwords, its inability to accurately define and critique the work we actually do was inevitable.

Online information can often be skewed, biased, or cater to specific audiences, which may result in AI systems developing a narrow or biased understanding of certain topics. Bing Chat could only regurgitate information it found online and therefore missed all the interesting offline value The Value Department creates!

Valuable Takeaways

AI tools like ChatGPT and Bing Chat are redefining the business landscape, offering unique perspectives and engaging approaches in areas such as blog writing. Both tools provide valuable insights for businesses, and our comparison showcases the versatility of AI tools in crafting engaging and humorous content.

And though this is just one small experiment, here are the key takeaways for us:

  1. Know when to use which tool: Different AI tools have different strengths. With numerous AI tools at our disposal, determining which ones are most applicable for the job you need done ensures you the best results. Consider when to use the free versus a paid version of the tools. Check out more AI tools at
  2. Experiment with different prompts to test your parameters: Your output changes based on the pre-defined parameters that you outline in your prompt. Be intentional with the key words that are outlined in the prompt.
  3. AI-generated content can be inaccurate or limited: ChatGPT’s critique of our logo and product offerings was largely inaccurate. Bing Chat’s critique of our buzzwords and sustainability approach missed the mark on what we actually do, demonstrating how AI tools can develop a narrow or biased understanding of certain topics
  4. AI-generated content can provide valuable insights: Despite AI’s limitations, Bing Chat provided valuable insights into how we can improve the content on our website so that it doesn’t seem buzzwordy
  5. AI tools are not a substitute for human creativity and critical thinking: While AI can provide significant value in many areas, it’s still not a substitute for human insight, creativity, and critical thinking. Human writers bring a level of nuance and context that AI tools are not able to capture

By examining ChatGPT and Bing Chat’s humorous critiques of The Value Department, we gained valuable insights about the power and pitfalls of AI-generated content. As the field of artificial intelligence continues to advance, it’s important to stay informed and take advantage of the latest innovations, stay tuned for more to follow on how The Value Department applies AI 😉
