Since last November when ChatGPT was unveiled, it has inspired an unparalleled amount of interest. Whether pro or con, one thing everyone agrees upon is that it represents a major advance in Artificial Intelligence and will be a disruptive force in our society. The articles that I originally cited for our group to read may be difficult to access. In recent weeks numerous other essays and podcast have appeared which are worth your time.

Join us for a lively discussion January 27, at 9:30 at the home of Annette Carnow, 16 Robert Reid Court. Seating is limited, so please register.  

For our discussion in February, we will read Imani Perri’s  latest book, South to America: a journey below the Mason-Dixon Line to understand the Soul of a Nation, which won the 2022 National Book Award for non-fiction. Her prose is poetic and her essays are illuminating.
