Artificial Intelligence (AI) generally and Large Language Models (LLMs) specifically have been all the rage over the past 12 months. Should you care? 

In this week’s episode of The Mind Tools L&D Podcast, Rosses Garner and Dickie are joined by learning strategist Ross Stevenson to discuss: 

  • The current state of AI 

  • The extent to which L&D pros should pay attention to ongoing developments 

  • Tips for making the most of AI tools, especially ChatGPT. 

During the discussion, Stevenson referenced ‘custom instructions’ for ChatGPT. These help tailor ChatGPT’s responses to your prompts, and mean you don’t need to add background information to every prompt. See his video on the topic for guidance. 

He also recommend Perplexity AI. See: 

In ‘What I Learned This Week’, Dickie recommended the Fit Bod app. 

Garner discussed the rise (and subsequent fall) of Quora.
