AI is a tool

Learn it or fall behind.

I used Chat GPT for the first time today to help with some writing. (Not this writing, so you can blame me for its failings.)

I had a problem, and it helped me through it. I probably would still be trying to figure out the solution if I hadn’t. It didn’t do a perfect job, but it did the heavy lifting that I couldn’t do myself.

The fact is, AI is here to stay, and we can avoid it, or we can use it. Will it replace us? Maybe? Who knows? I’m not a prognosticator.

I still know I will always want to express myself through writing, whether anyone is listening or not (this blog is an excellent example of that).

But until then, I will test AI out, play with it, and see what it can do.
