It’s a wrap! In what is traditionally our ‘least listened to’ and ‘most unhinged’ episode of the year, we’re celebrating the festive season with some reflections on the biggest talking point in L&D: the emergence of generative AI.

And we’re joined by special guests, ChatGPT (our first AI guest!) and Bedford Falls’ own George Bailey (making his annual appearance).

Ross Garner is joined by Owen Ferguson and Ross Dick to discuss:

·       How have tools like ChatGPT and Bard evolved over the year?

·       How are we using them?

·       What’s coming next?

ChatGPT then asks its own questions, with a spattering of festive zingers.

And George shares his observations on the prevalence of AI, and provides an insight into the Baileys’ favourite drink at this time of year.

In ‘What I Learned this Year’, Ross Dick recommended two newsletters: Platformer and One Useful Thing.

And Ross G wanted to provide the phone number for Samaritans: 116 123
