Ep338: Our Robot Overlords (AI for Writers)

Notes in the Margin

Feb 8 2023 • 37 mins

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 Takeaways:

[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 disposable.
