What people are saying

        My interest has been sparked in this topic based on an awareness that this IS our future. It is imperative that I understand the concept, the capabilities - especially as they pertain to the workplace and my own work. I think what you are doing with sessions like these is super important - and very "user-friendly' for even those not fully informed

        I really appreciate the focus on "people powered" AI. SO much of the narrative about AI has been really scary. The perspective that AI can help us and is human powered is a really exciting one. The observation about greeting and appreciating ChatGPT and how that affects our use of it was really an eyeopener too.
