Episode 338: Our Robot Overlords (AI for Writers)

Show Notes

This week, Vicky and Joe welcome our robot overlords with open arms! If you can sit through the first 10 minutes of extremely low-quality discussion about what AI is, from two people who don’t really understand it, you’ll be rewarded with a useful second half. Your hosts share several ways writers can use AI to make their lives easier — and talk about why we won’t ever replace human art with AI art.

 Key Points

  • [5:40] Is Quora worth it?
  • [6:30] Project Dingle update!
  • [8:10] Welcome to our robot overloads! 
  • [12:10] AI doesn’t work for a lot of people. 
  • [18:10] Will AI take over the purpose of writers?
  • [19:45] Ask unique and interesting questions to ChatGPT
  • [22:00] How has Vicky been using ChatGPT? 
  • [25:45] Vicky uses ChatGPT as a good content prompt. 
  • [29:50] Vicky is interested in seeing how people will use this to cheat the system (essay writing and other exams). 
  • [33:10] Don’t be worried about the tools that are at your disposal.
