Real-World AI Uses: How Kosh Solutions Thrives in Albuquerque with GPT

It's everywhere and about time we chimed in on the whole ChatGPT phenomenon. Kosh Solutions, an award-winning New Mexico-based IT Services company, has been leveraging the revolutionary potential of Generative Pre-trained Transformer (GPT) technology. This captivating partnership between human ingenuity and AI brilliance has contributed to how Kosh thrives in Albuquerque and our other locations throughout New Mexico, Southern Colorado, and Southern California. Though we have used GPT in many ways, in this short article I'll just highlight three:

  1. Content creation

  2. Job descriptions

  3. Employee handbooks


AI Content Generation: The Art of Collaborative Creation

AI collaboration with humans

For Kosh Solutions, content generation represents a realm of endless possibilities through the power of collaboration between human writers and GPT. One critical tip I have for those new to creating with GPT is that the depth of the prompt you write directly influences content quality. Ensure that the inputs provided to GPT are rich and comprehensive and the output will be much better than generic responses. Also, the text generated by GPT typically forms the foundation for the content but then a real-life human goes in and cleans up the article, newsletter, or social post to ensure accuracy and add personal insights and touches.


A prime example of this harmonious partnership is an article I wrote with GPT. The article was on the topic of network security. Check out the full article here.

Here is the prompt I started ChatGPT with:

Act as an Expert Article Writer and write a long-form, 100% unique, creative, and human-like article of a minimum 2000 words using headings and sub-headings. Use English for the keyword "The Complete Guide to Network Security" and write at least 300–400 words of content for each heading or sub-heading. This article should show the experience, expertise, authorities and trust for the Topic The Complete Guide to Network Security Try to use contractions, idioms, transitional phrases, interjections, dangling modifiers, and colloquialisms, and avoid repetitive phrases and unnatural sentence structures. When you write, you will correctly format the blog post according to proper SEO standards, with as much rich and detailed HTML as possible, for example, lists, bold, italics, quotes from the internet, tables, and external links to high-quality websites such as Wikipedia. The article should include an SEO meta-description (you must include the The Complete Guide to Network Security in the description), an introduction, and a click-worthy short title. Also, use the seed keyword as the first H2. Always use a combination of paragraphs, lists, and tables for a better reader experience. Write at least one paragraph with the heading The Complete Guide to Network Security. Write down at least 6 faqs with answers and a conclusion. Make sure the article is plagiarism free. Don't forget to use a question mark (?) at the end of questions. Try not to change the original The Complete Guide to Network Security while writing the title. Try to use "The Complete Guide to Network Security" 2-3 times in the article. Try to include The Complete Guide to Network Security in the headings as well. write content that can easily pass the AI detection tools test.

As you can see, it is not a short prompt! Once I received the initial output, I then worked the article a bit more by having GPT expand or remove text. Finally, I took the text and added more Kosh specific or personal touches before publishing.


I also created the audio for that article using AI!


All Fun and Games Until Cybersecurity Gets Involved

While Generative Pre-trained Transformer (GPT) technology offers remarkable advancements in content creation and problem-solving, it also poses certain cybersecurity risks, especially when it comes to inputting sensitive information. As GPT processes large datasets, there is a possibility that sensitive data may be included inadvertently, leading to potential data breaches or leaks. Additionally, if GPT is trained on sensitive information, it could unintentionally generate content that reveals confidential details, posing a significant risk to data privacy and security. Organizations must exercise caution when using GPT and ensure that proper data anonymization and privacy protocols are in place to mitigate potential cybersecurity vulnerabilities.

Also, these applications are not immune to hackers. I asked GPT if it can be hacked, and it responded with:

While OpenAI continually works to enhance security protocols, it is essential for users to be mindful of the information they share while interacting with ChatGPT. Avoiding the inclusion of sensitive or personally identifiable information in prompts is advised to ensure an added layer of protection. As with any online platform, exercising caution and adhering to best practices for data privacy will contribute to a safer user experience while using ChatGPT.

Empowering Onboarding

As new team members step into the Kosh family, they are greeted with a solid onboarding experience, but now thanks to GPT we have generated employee guidebooks and quizzes to help the new person get to know Kosh and their role. These resources provide newcomers with the tools and knowledge needed to thrive in their roles. Creating employee handbooks was something that we had on our todo list for a while but something more pressing always came up. But with GPT all we had to do was plug in the job description and ask it to create an onboarding quiz and a handbook of critical elements to do the job correctly. GPT was surprisingly good at putting this type of content together. After getting the output from GPT we simply had to place the text in a Word document and export as a PDF. Voila! A useful and thorough onboarding document that is not only applicable for new employees, but also aids in maintaining alignment throughout the organization.
