ChatGPT and why it has set the internet alight
In this episode, Colin Eberhardt is joined by his colleague, Oliver Cronk, and Chris Booth from NatWest for a lively discussion about the much-hyped ChatGPT.
They discuss the origins of this technology and the recent advances that contributed to its success. From there, they look at the new discipline of prompt engineering, and how this approach has democratised access to cutting-edge AI. They also consider the emotive response they feel towards this technology, and the shared belief that this is going to be huge!
As this podcast aims to look ‘beyond the hype’, they also talk about practical applications and the limitations of this technology.
