OpenAI's new ChatGPT is the latest in a long line of natural language processing (NLP) text-generating AI software, launched on 30 November 2022. ChatGPT is currently (15 January 2023) available as freeware, with much media hype, largely due to a rumoured interest by Microsoft and consequent public interest.

There are however other AI companies developing NLP text-generating products. All these products are undoubtedly powerful utilities: their capabilities are significantly beyond mere contextual spell-checking and type-ahead functions commonly found in word processors.

During this workshop, you will take a close look at ChatGPT, co:here, Quillbot and TextCortex. By the end of the workshop, you'll have a good understanding of how each of these products work and how they can be applied to your own projects. You will also learn about their good and bad parts, their strengths and weaknesses, and you will be able to make better choices about which tool is best for you.

  • Does the software offering do anything useful?
  • How easy is it to use the platform?
  • Are any paid options worthwhile?
  • What are the quirks of the platform? What are the limits of its usefulness?
  • Are the "challengers" able to use their manoeuvrability to their advantage, when compared to Alphabet (Google), IBM, Meta (Facebook), Microsoft, and other legacy brands otherwise dominating consumer and commercial software?
  • Second- and third-order ignorance: what don't I know and what questions don't I know to ask? These can only be addressed through experience of using the platforms.

  1. Introduction to NLP text-generating AI software.
  2. How to use the free versions of ChatGPT, co:here, Quillbot and TextCortex. The preconfigured settings in Quillbot and TextCortex. How to use ChatGPT to inspire content you may not otherwise of thought of.
  3. What sets ChatGPT apart from the others?
    • We will also explore how ChatGPT can already be used to generate realistic conversations, and how it can be customised for different applications.
    • ChatBot ethics and the limitations of ChatGPT imposed by OpenAI.
    • Limitations of ChatGPT in practice: why a critical and knowledgeable review of the output is needed.
