The release of AI-powered products like ChatGPT and Midjourney have captured the public imagination, but how much is hype, and how much is reality? I'll give a crash course on how current AI systems work, what they're capable of, their pitfalls, and how they might be useful to the average attorney, writer or accountant. Exactly how useful they will become is an open question in this rapidly evolving field, but I'll present some use cases and attempt to give my predictions for the coming years. Will it really replace your job? (And what's this I hear about it taking over the world?!)
