Title: “Embracing Generative Ai For Mindfulness And Mental Stimulation On Lengthy Flights”

Can you handle the latest new trend on what to do and not do while on a lengthy flight? Read and find out.

The latest trending buzzword is the catchphrase of “raw-dogging” during a commercial flight (the clean version), namely that you opt to do nothing as a flying passenger other than staring straight ahead for the entire duration of the flight. You intentionally and devotedly allow your mind to be free of any of the usual accompaniments such as no audiobooks, no earphones-pumped music, no in-flight movies, no videos on your smartphone, and not even any old-fashioned paper-based books or newspapers. That’s right, you sit there and seemingly act like a human vegetable.

Furthermore, those of the purest form of this activity, or shall we say non-activity, would eschew any water, food, candy, or any other valuable or useless nourishment. You are trying to minimize any kind of physical exertion. You are also aiming to reduce or minimize any form of external stimulus that might get your mental juices going. The assumption is that by avoiding using headsets and not watching or listening to entertainment or infotainment, and by not reading regular books or e-books, your mind is getting a vital respite.

As you will shortly see, though this is a hot trend right now, I predict that one means of overstepping this newly identified mindless approach to flying is going to ultimately and soon enough give way to the use of generative AI during your flying journeys. I suggest that you can have your cake and eat it too—remaining relatively motionless and yet stirring your desired mental emptiness into fruitful mindfulness via the likes of modern-day generative AI and large language models (LLMs).

Let’s talk about it.

Generative AI – What Is It?

Generative AI has been making waves in the tech field recently. Through apps like ChatGPT , GPT-4o , Gemini , Bard , Claude , etc., generative AI can take input from text prompts and generate responses that sound fluent—a significant advancement from earlier stilted natural language processing. It functions based on large language models constructed using vast amounts of data retrieved from the internet—essays, blogs, poems—to mimic human writing patterns.

Now let’s bring this back to our current topic: embracing nothingness during air travel. While this trend dictates avoiding in-flight entertainment like movies or podcasts—forbidden fruit—conversations with generative AI could be an exception. Why not engage an AI buddy in thoughtful banter during those long flights? You could instruct it to keep things light-hearted or educational based on your preferences.

Embracing Generative AI for Mental Stimulation

Using generative AI during flights offers more than just passing time—it can enhance knowledge across various subjects while keeping you mentally engaged throughout the journey. Whether seeking entertainment by playing games with AI or learning something new like top-notch culinary skills from an imaginary expert chef guide—generative AI can turn mundane flights into intellectually stimulating experiences.

Generative AI may potentially revolutionize how we utilize our time during flights providing both entertainment and educational value seamlessly intertwined in one compelling package.Clearing Up Some Misconceptions

Before diving headfirst into adopting generative AI for mid-air enlightenment sessions—a few caveats should be acknowledged:
1. Generative AI’s limitations exist; it doesn’t possess sentience nor offer unerring advice.
2. Errors like ‘AI hallucinations’ are possible instances where false information may be generated.
3. Confidentiality isn’t always guaranteed when conversing with generative AIs.
4. Mental health advice through generative AIs might need careful consideration due to potential unanticipated consequences.
