With AI and other tech, we are the product AND the guinea pigs.
I was explaining AI prompts to my husband this evening. "Oh, it's like what you do with Alexa, when you keep changing the question to get a better answer," he said. And then I explained that, unlike Alexa, generative AI knows the previous prompt and keeps improving its answer based on all the new information you give it. I've been spending a lot of time writing AI prompts lately as I use and experiment with AI tools. I am filled with wonder — and fear — every day as both AI and I get better at this.
