So, this post was written(?) generated(?)by ChatGPT. Mostly, but not fully.

If you’re like us, you’re reading many of the articles and news about ChatGPT with excitement, sometimes confusion, and often apprehension. Many of the WCET team members have accessed ChatGPT and given it various prompts, and the results have certainly been intriguing to review. We wanted to see ChatGPT’s take on this year’s WCET Virtual Summit. We asked ChatGPT to write a blog post highlighting the event. While we do not believe ChatGPT will be replacing any of our team or guest blog post authors, it helped us understand a bit more about how the platform can be used and to see what it got right and what it got wrong about our event.

We had a few main takeaways from using ChatGPT in this manner:

  1. It wrote a fairly good synopsis of our event. It produced a great starting point for an article marketing the Summit.
  2. We still had to do quite a lot of editing to ensure that the content made sense and was a correct representation of the event and of WCET.
  3. It felt odd and conflicting to use the content from ChatGPT, even as a “starting point” that we then edited.

Without further ado, I give you ChatGPT on the upcoming WCET Summit. Enjoy.

Kudos to ChatGPT, it wrote a fairly good overview of our upcoming event. We particularly appreciated the focus on our opening keynote. To be fair, we did do some editing to make the post more informative – about 50 percent was edited and updated.

Have you given a prompt to ChatGPT? How did it turn out? Share with us on social!
