The rapid spread of AI tools following the release of ChatGPT has sent shockwaves through industries, job markets, schools, and the media, generating fear of job loss, doomsday predictions, confusion, and, here and there, glimmers of hope and excitement. This webinar introduces ChatGPT as it applies to editors, examining how we can put this tool to work in our industry. The presentation will include live demonstrations of workflows and features to make our work easier, from communicating with clients to parsing tangled sentences, having passages of jargon translated, generating ideas for titles, and coming up with missing concepts or counter-arguments to a text.
