I’m home from ISEA, I’ve sent my daughter to school, my teaching starts on Wednesday: semester’s starting again. I’m going to spend an hour or two planning my autumn. There are a lot of things I want to do but I’m going to have to pick and choose because I refuse to work round the clock or be laden with guilt. This semester I’m going to be efficient.

Do people flock to talks about ChatGPT because they are scared?

Whenever I give talks about ChatGPT and LLMs, whether to ninth graders, businesses or journalists, I meet people who are hungry for information, who really want to understand this new technology.
