Artificial Intelligence. Machine Learning. Neural Networks. If you haven’t come across these buzzwords yet, we just wanna ask:


What rock have you been living under and are you okay?!


For the past couple of years, these digital age buzzwords have been taking the tech world by storm. And with Statista projecting global AI software market growth to reach up to a staggering 126 billion U.S. dollars by 2025, it’s no surprise that AI’s been at the tip of everyone’s tongue and at the top of most of our minds. 


The rapidly expanding landscape of AI tools is a clear indication of how AI is revolutionizing the way we live and work. But with so many AI tools available, how do you know which one is right for what you’re trying to do?


With ChatGPT having its moment, there’s no better place to start. 


Let’s take a closer look at this popular AI tool and see how it stacks up against Deciphr. 


ChatGPT: The AI Chatbot Doing The Most


The ‘it girl’ of tech. The talk of the town. The blockbuster hit that’s seen a million users try it out in its first week. 


ChatGPT’s officially arrived, blown everyone’s mind, and claimed the spotlight for itself for good reason. 

💡 The Lowdown

Powered by GPT3.5 series, a large language model capable of processing an extensive amount of parameters and data, this chatbot can suggest ideas, answer questions, and generate various forms of written content way better than its tech ancestors. 

It’s giving other existing AIs that specialize in text-based or written form output such as Quillbot, SudoWrite, and Jasper.ai a run for their money.

✅ Applications

A state-of-the-art AI tool that can generate human-like text responses in natural language processing tasks, ChatGPT’s designed to:

  • Respond to questions
  • Generate captions for images
  • Summarize text
  • Help with article planning and writing
  • Come up with ideas 

⛔ Limitations

While ChatGPT has many impressive features and capabilities, it's not without its limitations.

  • Accuracy: Although ChatGPT has been trained on a large dataset, it's still prone to making mistakes and generating responses that may be irrelevant or inappropriate.
  • Contextual Understanding: ChatGPT can struggle with understanding the context of a conversation, leading to responses that may not be in line with the context.
  • Human Interaction: ChatGPT can simulate human conversation to an extent, but it's still not as good as actual human interaction.
  • Personalization: ChatGPT can't provide a personalized experience for each user, as it's trained on a large dataset and not individual users.


Deciphr: The AI Tool for Podcast Content Creation

Designed to save podcasters time by streamlining their podcast content creation workflow, Deciphr is the AI tool for post-production podcast content maximization.


💡 The Lowdown

An AI tool made with podcasters in mind, Deciphr generates various types of output from your episode that’s primed for content repurposing.

Just upload your episode transcript or audio to Deciphr and within minutes, you’ll get episode insights to help you craft a world of content in half the time.


Podcasters can easily use their Deciphr output to create a wide collection of episode content such as: episode descriptions, show notes, graphic assets, articles, audiograms and more. 


✅ Applications

An incredibly efficient and intelligent AI that understands the nuances behind human conversations, Deciphr’s perfect for:

  • Creating episode timestamps
  • Generating episode transcript drafts
  • Creating episode summaries
  • Identifying episode highlights
  • Extracting quotes from your episode

⛔ Limitations

While Deciphr AI is an excellent tool for podcast content creation and repurposing—and as much as we like to toot our own horn about how amazing we are at what we do—we gotta admit we’re not a magic bullet. Here are a couple of things we’re not (yet) a perfect match for:

  • Zero to Hero Content Generation: Deciphr uses machine learning algorithms to understand verbal conversations through either text or audio. What that means is that to create the kind of amazing podcast episode content that Deciphr specializes in, it needs some type of input to begin with. Deciphr can’t create something out of a prompt. It needs source material.
  • Hyper-Personalization: At present, Deciphr is limited to a default tone and voice when delivering episode summaries and insights. Because of this, it’s unable to deliver output that’s personalized for a specific audience or brand tone and voice. This means that much like ChatGPT, Deciphr still requires some measure of human intervention to refine an episode output into content that reflects a podcast’s unique voice and personality.


Deciphr vs. ChatGPT

So which tool's right for you? 

The answer to this will depend on your specific needs. 

If you're looking for a tool to help you generate ideas from scratch, create a chatbot for your business, or help you draft various types of written content, then ChatGPT’s a great place to start. 

But if you're looking for a tool to specifically streamline your podcast content creation workflow, there’s no better AI buddy than Deciphr.

All you need is a transcript or an audio file of your episode and within minutes you’ll get an episode transcript, summary, timestamps, and highlights of key moments from your episode. 

All the essential content components you’ll need to scale your podcast content marketing across various platforms in half the time. 

So, there you have it folks, the AI showdown between ChatGPT and Descript. Whether you're looking for a tool to generate ideas from scratch or a tool specifically designed for podcasters to scale their episode content, these two AI tools have got you covered.
