Title: ChatGPT: the threat, the promise, and its effects on the editing industry
Date: March 16, 2023

Time: 4-5 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time


Everyone's talking about ChatGPT and other large language models. Can they edit as well as we do? Can they write just like us? Are we going to lose our jobs?
Let's all take a deep breath and spend some time discussing what we know today about these networks -- and how they may affect (and enhance) our work. We'll discuss:
What large language models are and how they work
How we can harness their power to help us edit 
Ways they can speed up our writing process
How their missteps make fact checking even more important
Most importantly, we'll discuss the value we bring as human editors and writers -- and how we can differentiate ourselves in a suddenly robot-competitive world.

Cost: Free for ACES members/$30 for non-members
