I’ve been reading all my books, watching a lot of YouTube videos, and learning a great deal about so many famous women this month. Like most months where we celebrate various things throughout the year, it is so hard to grasp the depth and breadth of the contributions of so many women who have contributed to what we call our current day reality.
During one of my searches, I discovered this article, which lists the top 100 women inventors in history. Here’s the link: https://www.cadcrowd.com/blog/top-100-famous-female-inventors-in-history-modern-women-inventors/#:~:text=Top%20100%20famous%20female%20inventors%20in%20history%201,%28Unknown%29%208%208.%20Ann%20Lambrechts%20%28Unknown%29%20More%20items
Here are a few women from that list:
Ada Lovelace is responsible for writing the first ever computer algorithm.
Adeline D.T. Whitney is responsible for the creation of alphabet blocks for children.
Alice Ball was responsible for creating the first cure for leprosy.
Ann Tsukamoto was responsible for discovering and isolating stem cells.
If you’d like to be inspired or awe struck, take a look at all the women who have made great contributions to the many technologies we enjoy today. I grabbed four that caught my eye in the early part of the list. There are 96 more. This is again the wonder of women throughout history that have contributed to our current society. Bravo!
If you want to see some great videos of women in history, simply search for them on YouTube. I have watched so many videos on women inventors, women in history, and the other searches I’ve used, it is mind boggling. I simply spend about 20 minutes a day looking at videos to broaden my knowledge of women in history. There are too many to highlight any here. If you’re interested, do a “women in history” search on YouTube, and you’re likely to see the same videos I’ve watched so far.
Well, I hope you enjoy the link I provided and the adventures you have on YouTube.
What am I learning? ChatGPT. This is Artificial Intelligence. Microsoft has already incorporated this into its web browser Bing, which I use, but the ChatGPT client is something else. You can use this tool to search the internet and create papers, books, and other written artifacts. I’m currently exploring how to use it to learn. Imagine asking ChatGPT about any topic. It will put together a paper for you at the length you specify and even provide the references it uses to support the paper’s claims. I’m very interested in the wars of history. My current interest is the Peloponnesian Wars. I’ll keep you updated on my progress.
If you’d like to try this out for yourself, here’s the link to get started: https://chat.openai.com/auth/login?ref=upstract.com
The log in you create is nothing more than your first name, last name, email address and phone number. You’ll have to verify your email address and phone number and then you’re all set. There’s a Chat GPT +, but I imagine that will cost you some money. For now, I’m going to stick with the free version. It’s pretty cool, so far. I hope you give it a try. It’ll be a great addition to my ability to conduct research on all the things I enjoy learning about.
Well, that’s it for now, folks. I hope you have a great Thursday!
Until next time…
