The hsbWriters group will chat about ChatGPT at its next First Thursday social. The casual forum is from 6-8 p.m. March 2 at Bear King Brewing Co., 207 Avenue G in Marble Falls. Admission is free; reservations are not required.

A revolutionary language modeling tool, the artificial intelligence chatbot has been making headlines for its ability to participate in interactive conversations, write unique content, and create software code. 

Many professionals are evaluating how ChatGPT could be useful to their businesses while wading through the ethical issues regarding AI.

“Most businesses know an AI function can’t replace a human,” said Rebecca Kelley of hsbWriters, who is a public relations specialist. “I do think some businesses are looking at AI to take the place of someone like me, writing some of the boring stuff. Although I do like to think I add a bit of flair.” 

Writers, editors, illustrators, and anyone interested in the topic are invited to the March 2 forum to participate in the dialogue.
