Episode 101

QUESTION TIME with Aidan, Aileen and Aimee

How would Aidan, Aileen and Aimee - the clue lies in the first two letters of each name – describe the attractions of land-based engineering?

I have produced this episode using ChatGPT, posing questions, refining the text responses, using the read-aloud feature, allocating appropriate voices and recording for this podcast.  You cannot edit the text in ChatGPT, so you hear the actual responses.

Commentators believe Artificial Intelligence could be the single greatest human achievement, but critics argue that it has the potential to be the most destructive.

I only participated in the foothills of ChatGPT, there is much greater sophistication being developed daily. As I recorded this episode, UK Prime Minister Rishi Sunak was in Washington meeting US President Joe Biden with the implementation of controls on AI development high on the agenda.

A thought? Given that everything in cyberspace has been created by humans, I wonder whether the saying ‘garbage in, garbage out’ still holds true?

I have put a transcript of the ChatGPT ‘conversation’ on the Inside Agri-Turf website which you can access HERE

The human campaign to encourage greater understanding and participation is outlined on the We Are Landbased Engineering website
