133: Writing with Robots – How to Use AI

Thanks to generative AI, there is a revolution in the writing world. While some writers are wondering whether software like ChatGPT will replace them, others are using AI to make their work easier.

Remember the days of carbon copies and tippex? Who can now imagine the work of the writer without computers? And there’s no going back. If AI doesn’t replace writers, it’s clear that those who use AI will replace those who don’t.

In this course you’ll learn how to start using AI in your own writing – whatever you want to write. You might be surprised by the results.
