"Navigating the AI Abyss: A Neophyte's Journey into the World of Artificial Intelligence"

This is the fifth blog post I have written this week about my experience with artificial intelligence (AI) for genealogy or blogging. I have given overly simplistic examples of AI. If there is something lower than a neophyte that would be me. 

I know little about the scientific method behind AI. I don't know about all the sophisticated uses of AI, but I am a lifelong learner. I enjoy learning new things. I enjoy researching current ideas and finding out how they can help me do my job better. Work better, not harder. 

I have used AI generators, like ChatGPT, for writing family stories and research help. What else can it do? I can see AI and AI generators becoming a powerful help when researching family history. Something I plan to try next with ChatGPT is historical county history. I have ancestors from the Colonial Period forward and during that time there were many boundary changes. I would like to delve into the boundary changes and land disputes between New York and Vermont. Another thing I want to try is to see if it will help me create a research plan. There are many ways ChatGPT can be a research assistance. I plan to continue exploring those options.

AI generators are a big topic now. I am seeing more information every day about AI and AI generators and their application to genealogy. If you are looking for people with more knowledge than I in this area, look at these resources.
