What is ChatGPT and how will it impact project management?

Never take meeting notes or write a meeting summary again. Can this be true? Artificial Intelligence (AI) has been in the movies for years, and AI has become mainstream in the last few years.

Advancement in AI is making natural language processing a reality. Android, Apple, and Microsoft have been using voice commands for simple requests. Tools today can transcribe meeting notes and dynamically translate the captioning to another language in real time.

The next generation of AI is creating content. “GPT-3, or the third generation Generative Pre-trained Transformer., is a neural network machine learning model trained using internet data to generate any type of text.” ChatGPT and InstructGPT, from OpenAI, use a technique “Reinforcement Learning from Human Feedback” (RLHF) to make their models safer by minimizing toxic or error prone outputs.

Here is a sample input “How will ChatGPT impact project management and future projects?” This is a sample returned “ChatGPT and other language generation models like it have the potential to greatly impact project management in the future.”  Enjoy this look at the present and near future and advance your skills along the way.
