For my capstone course for my master's degree, our group project is to create a mobile app that can record conversations, use speed-to-text with diarisation (distinguish different speakers), and then send the conversation to ChatGPT to get reminders, a summary, or some other function. We refer to these functions as transmogrifiers, in homage to Cavin & Hobbies. See the linked definition, which aptly also describes the results from ChatGPT. The app is suppose to help people with short-term memory loss or high short-term memory demands (like waitstaff).

So I can see how using ChatGPT makes creating an app like this a lot easier because the programmer doesn't need to deal with parsing the text. That functionality is offloaded to an API that is designed to parse natural text.
